    Hi all.
    I am new to posting.

    What I am looking for is where I need to go to get decorations put on my
    DD-214 that I was awarded in Viet Nam.

    I was with H&S 3/5 at FSB Ross. My mos was 0341.

    Thanks for the help.

    You need to apply to the Board of Corrections for Naval Records and ask they be included. You do this by submitting a DD-149 to the Board. They will provide you with a DD-215 with the awards listed. You cannot get a new DD-214.

    You can find a fillable DD-149 here:

    The correct mailing address is on the reverse.

    Thanks for the info. I am now working through the request to get this corrected so I can get the ribbons,medals, and certificates that I did not get when discharged.
