The VMET (Verification of Military Experience and Training), DD Form 2586, provides an overview of your military experience and training. You can use this document in conjunction with your DD Form 214, evaluation records, training certificates, awards, transcripts, and other documentation to:

  • Create a Resume
  • Complete a Job Application
  • Identify credit recommendations from the American Council of Education (ACE) 
  • Identify possible certification/waiver of apprenticeship requirements

To access your VMET, go to the DoDTAP website and log on with your DoD CAC or DS Logon.

  1. Select “Access VMET Documents”
  2. Select CAC or DS Logon option
  3. Select “VMET document (DD-2586) and “Submit” (print your VMET)
  4. Select “Cover letter” and “Submit” (print your cover letter)

The VMET document you are able to download is updated quarterly and will always contain information that lags about 3-6 months behind the current date.

You can also access your VMET by visiting the Veterans Employment Center on eBenefits. You will need to use your DoD CAC or DS Logon to access the website.

Your military training and experience may also be supported by your Joint Services Transcript. Click here to learn more about accessing your JST.
