What branch of service, little more information is need and the individual will most likely need to obtain records upon discharge. Most service members receive their packets in arms and it is up to the individual when out processing to ensure his file is updated correctly.

Dear Bayise Bryan,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives does not have information about military personnel that have recently been discharged or are soon to be discharged. These records are still in the custody of the service member’s branch of service. Please see Locations of Service Records for more information about which organizations to contact based on his branch of service. Please be advised that only very limited information may be provided from recent military service records without the consent of the veteran.
As Mr. Schneider pointed out, Joseph John should receive a complete copy of his OMPF upon separation, and will also be able to access his record online through the Defense Personnel Records Information System (DPRIS) accessible through milConnect. We suggest that you communicate directly with Joseph John regarding any information you need about his service record, such as copies of separation documents to prove veteran status.
We hope this is helpful.
