COMDTINST M1900.4D listed specific instances when NOT to issue a DD-214. COMDTINST 1900.4E was issued Apr 11, 2016 stating that the Coast Guard is to use the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214/5 Series), DoDI 1336.01 as the leading directive.
If you have not read the DoDI, strongly recommend that you do. Couple of major changes:
These changes went into effect when the CG issued the new directive on 4/11/2016. If member requests, and is eligible, a DD Form 256 and/or a DD-214, it must be completed. DD Form 256 is to be completed by member P&A Office (unit where they were assigned at time of discharge). DD-214's are to be done by the SPO (current SPO).
