Can a Post require a DD214 before accepting an individual's application?

No. Section 103, Paragraph 3, of the National By-Laws, provides that "the Post Reviewing Committee shall not recommend acceptance of an application unless eligibility has been fully determined. The Post is accountable for the eligibility of every member accepted into membership." There is nothing in the National By-Laws stating that a DD214 is the only document required to substantiate eligibility. Copies of orders, payroll vouchers, etc., are other sources of eligibility.
