The SF 813 should be used to request verification of participation in a nonwartime campaign or expedition,
and dates of participation, only if this information is not documented on the retiree's DD Form 214. It is the
retired member's responsibility to provide the name of any nonwartime campaign or expedition for which
credit is requested. Service will be verified only if the SF 813 lists specific campaigns/expeditions and
inclusive dates of the retiree's participation. It is not sufficient to list just the service component (e.g.,
“USAF') or medal (e.g., “Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal”). If a follow up request is necessary, reproduce a
copy of the original request and clearly mark the top of the SF 813, “Follow up Request.” For additional
information see www.opm.gov/StaffingPortal/vgmedal2.asp, VetGuide Appendix A: Wars, Campaigns and
Expeditions of the Armed Forces Since WWII Which Qualify for Veterans Preference.
Notes1) Use SF 813 only for persons who are retired from active military service. Do not use this form if
the person has completed 20 or more years of Reserve or National Guard service but will not
receive a pension until age 60.
2) If retirement is from the U.S. Coast Guard, allow six months from the date of retirement before
submitting this form.
