The intent of a document is critical to understanding
it. Only so much can be inferred by the
reader. Beyond that, the designer of the
template must include his or her specific intent textually somewhere within the
document. Whether he or she chooses to
make this statement of intent visible to the naked eye is entirely up to the
designer. Beware of white of near white
text since it can be sifted through via click and drag or Optical Character
Recognition (OCR) programs’ detection abilities.
Some Key Questions to Ask when Reviewing Any
Q1. Why was this
Q2. What agency or
organization generated this particular version of this document?
Q3. Is this version
of the document possibly a copy and or altered?
Q4. What benefit
could be gained by altering and/or copying this particular document?
i.e; Any DD Form 214
clearly states that it is for official discharge from United States Military
Service using a template that clarifies all of the particulars of the listed
service member’s time in that specified branch.
Recent versions have a particular anti-alteration background for
sections of the document that might be used for nefarious benefits eligibility
so they require verification of the member’s copy to the government filed
original prior to issuance of such benefits.
