I'm not going to say the man is or isn't telling the truth, but
it strikes me that different people keep records in different
ways.  If asked for a copy of my DD214 I would have to think
about which storage cabinet it is in and then I would have to
paw through my Air Force records to find it.  My Dad, who uses
VA resources on a regular basis, used to carry his in a folder
with the rest of his and my mother's medical records in a folder
any time they went to a military facility.  That stopped when
the VA started issuing a photo ID about five years ago.  Now, he
too would have to look for his DD214 and other records since he
doesn't carry them to military facilities.

So, now you know of at least two more people that can't get at
their DD214 without a bit of bother.  <g>

I think expecting the person to have instant or easy access to a
DD214 is, by itself, not evidence of anything except that the
person doesn't use military benefits often.
