How do I download a filled-out php form?
It doesn't sound like you understand how PHP handles forms. The usual scenario is you present the user with an HTML page that contains the form. The action attribute of the opening form tag indicates the webpage that will process the submitted form (and confirm to the user that it has done so). The form-processing page will contain PHP code to do what you need to do with the contents of the form. For example, it will usually store the information in a server-side database, like MySQL. It might also send an email to someone.If you want to provide the user with a downloadable, editable form, you could do that by having PHP create a PDF with the submitted data I can't imagine why you'd want to do that, but it's possible.
How does a National Guard member get a DD 214 form, and are they considered a veteran?
I believe that a National Guard member, like an Army Reservist (and unlike the Active Component) may receive multiple DD 214s during a career. I received my first DD 214 when I completed Officer Basic Course in ADT (Active Duty for Training) status when I left that status. Every time a reserve component member is mobilized (possibly for longer than a certain length of time) a new DD 214 is issued at REFRAD (Return from Active Duty) processing. At this time, I have not completed my service, so I am not sure what the final certificate is for USAR - there may be a NGB form certifying the end of service for the National Guard.Anyone that served honorably in the military in any component is considered a veteran. If someone is a “combat veteran” is a less cut and dry thing. One can say that anyone with a patch on the right shoulder is, or someone where block 18 of the DD 214 says “serviced in a designated imminent danger pay area” is, or a person is authorized a CAB/CIB in the DD 214 block 13 is.
How accurate is the DD Form 214? I have several that don't match with what I was told about the veterans' experiences.
I found this ProPublica-Seattle Times investigation article (ProPublica Nov. 9, 2012, 3:45 p.m. EST). It only talks about the desert wars. But, in my never to be humble, opinion it also applies to Vietnam Vets.A strange thing happened when Christopher DeLara filed for disability benefits after his tour in Iraq: The U.S. Army said it had no records showing he had ever been overseas. Sound familiar to Vietnam Vets? The Army has failed “to create and maintain the types of field records that have documented American conflicts since the Revolutionary War.”The military has also lost or destroyed records from Afghanistan (and previous military actions), according to officials and previously undisclosed documents.The loss of field records — after-action write-ups, intelligence reports and other day-to-day accounts from the war zones — has far-reaching implications. It has complicated efforts by soldiers like DeLara to claim benefits.“The Army says it has taken steps to improve handling of records — including better training and more emphasis from top commanders. But officials familiar with the problem said the missing material may never be retrieved.”"I can't even start to describe the dimensions of the problem," said Conrad C. Crane, director of the U.S. Army's Military History Institute. "I fear we're never really going to know clearly what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan (or other war zones) because we don't have the records." The Army botched the record-keeping job. Despite new guidelines issued in 2008 to safeguard records, some units still purged them.You can go online to read the rest of this article but essentially it is saying that the Vet can’t get a correct DD-214 if his unit kept no records, was sloppy in record-keeping or just purged the records when they left the war zone. I believe that’s what happened to a lot of Vietnam Vets.I had one Company Commander who had my exact name and a slightly different SSN. It took me quite a while to separate our DD-214s. He had no interest in doing so because my decorations, awards, etc. looked a lot better than his. When finally got that mess straightened out.When I applied for PTSD benefits at my local VA, I was dismissed immediately out of hand. I had to have 3 people from my unit swear that I was where I say I was and my DD-214 had to mention the place where it occurred (it was left off my DD-214). Can anybody find 3 guys from their unit 30 years later? The Marine Corps didn’t enter the information. Then I remembered my USMC health records I had stored away. I got the out and sure enough, that documented my stay in a Navy hospital for a few months due to combat fatigue (today we call it PTSD). I took that back to the VA and got my disability. I guess the bottom line is to keep your own records for everything you do or is done to you.
