Along the way, other trans vet visitors here have asked for me to provide any extra info when I found it. I did find some "clarifications" today as I was trying to "back track' through the processes I would have to jump through to change my VA gender markers which works through the DD214 form.
Here are some other links you may be interested in:
Your next move (of course) is another form - DD 149
Which leads you to:
What evidence should I submit along with my DD Form 149?
1. Evidence of your legal name change, such as a certified copy of your name change order
2. We recommend including at least one, and as many as you have available, of the following: A U.S. Passport showing your updated name and gender - A state driver’s license or identification card showing your updated name and gender - A court order recognizing your gender transition
AND A signed statement, on office letterhead, from a licensed physician.
Though no requirements for this statement have been issued, we recommend the statement follow the following format: I, (physician’s full name), (physician’s medical license or certificate number), (issuing U.S. State/Foreign Country of medical license/certificate), (DEA Registration number or comparable foreign designation), am the physician of (name of patient), with whom I have a doctor/patient relationship and whom I have treated (or with whom I have a doctor/patient relationship and whose medical history I have reviewed and evaluated). (Name of patient) has had appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition to the new gender (specify new gender male or female)
I will let you read on from there! (TAVAUSA)
