Very simple process but takes a long time. Write the Archives. Here's how. https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/
*NOT LEGAL ADVICE. YOU HAVE NOT PAID ME A RETAINER. WE DO NOT HAVE AN ATTORNEY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP. This is general information for educational purposes only. You should always hire a lawyer and reveal all the unique facts to get the best answer for your unique situation. Answering this question on a public forum does not create an attorney-client relationship.
How long ago were you discharged? If it was recent and you are near an installation for the same branch that you were in you may be able to call/visit them and have them provide a copy. I believe that in the Marine Corps our admin folks can go back several years post-discharge. You can also check with Archives.gov as my colleague suggested or your entire Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC).
Providing answers on Avvo does not create an Attorney-Client relationship and the answers provided, based on the limited information provided in the question, should not be construed as concrete legal advice.
