TouchStone Research Group / Military records scam
I recently spent $130.00 with Touchstone Research Group because they claimed I could receive a copy of my DD214 (Military Discharge) within 2-3 business days. Need ing a copy to apply for a job I was quite happy that I wouldn't have to wait the average of six weeks when using the government channels.
Upon Touchstone receiving my payment I was informed that the request was submitted but a problem had occurred. Apparently it can take up to two weeks for the government employees to pull my file and send them a copy but once that is complete then I will receive it within 2-3 business days!
Before any other veterans take this avenue of retrieval please contact your state VA office and ask them for advice on less expensive and more timely methods of acquiring your military records!
