Frequently Asked Questions

Not receiving our emails?

If any email we sent you in the past was bounced, it is possible that you have been added to our bounce list. This will prevent you from receiving any of our emails, even search results! If you place an order and do not receive a confirmation email, please reach out to our support staff by calling 202-462-0600, or emailing [email protected].


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 than using the DMDC or 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 because of 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.

How to Do 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. Providing a Social Security number is the quickest way to get results. But in most other cases, you may be able to get results with other personal data, too. Such data may include a date of birth, names of relatives, addresses, telephone numbers, or even the names of businesses to which the subject might be related. Our reporting also covers people who have recently retired from the military.

How Do Payments Work?

You pay nothing until your search is complete. You may submit as many names as you need searched, and you pay at checkout using PayPal. If we cannot provide the verification you need, you can opt to get a full refund or purchase an affidavit of due diligence, which is generally sufficient in a court of law. The cost of a search is $40, and we offer batch discounts to large-volume clients.

Can I include a suffix like Jr. or Sr. in my order?

Suffixes are NOT supported by the Department of Defense. The DMDC offers no field to enter a suffix. As a result, we cannot include suffixes in our affidavits. However, if the name of the person you are looking to verify does have a suffix (Jr., Sr., III, etc.), please include that information in your order with us. It is extremely helpful to our research team.
