Why Use SCRACVS
Frequently, you must present evidence in court that you have done an adequate search for military status. Our website offers a verification method that is much more efficient and less costly than writing directly to the individual branches of the military.
Furthermore, going that latter route can mean waiting months to get results. Additionally, some branches of the armed forces have now indicated they are no longer able process active military duty requests. They attribute this to a lack of resources. Experienced users find SCRACVS to be far superior to the DMDC site. One major difference is that SCRACVS offers affidavits and excellent customer support via phone and chat.
Conducting a DMDC Military Search
If you want to use our site for verifying DMDC records, start by completing our simple registration form. It’s easy to register, and you don’t pay until you perform a military status search through our encrypted portal.
