Veterans Can Now Wrap Themselves In Their Own DD-214 Blankets

A popular meme in military culture has been brought to life by a veterans clothing site. The meme surrounds discharge papers — known by veterans as the DD-214. If you’ve spent any time on military or veteran-oriented Facebook pages and sites, you’ve probably seen a number of DD-214 memes. They usually appear in the comments section of a Facebook post that shows one of the less appealing elements of life in the military.
