FAQ

How can I obtain my medical records?
If you are in the United States the HIPAA law requires your medical practitioner, clinic or hospital to provide you with access to your medical records. They also can provide you with a copy of your medical record. This can still cost you money. They don’t have to do this for free. Time for the employee supervising your review of the medical record and/or time for copying your medical record has to be covered.Contact the provider and ask the operator or receptionist about obtaining a copy of your medical record. They should be able to funnel your call to the correct department/individual.
How can I access my military medical records?
I am non-military, however, if the missing page was created while IN the Navy, then you must go to the DOD, to obtain those records.  The VA system (called VISTA) only has PHI records AFTER you got out.  It is unfortunate that these CLOSED systems are separate silo’s of information, closed meaning they aren’t sharing the records with other .systems. The good news is the DOD is changing systems (Cerner), and the VA is now looking for an “off-the-shelf” solution.
How can I obtain military criminal records?
Question: How can I obtain military criminal records?It depends.Why do you want them?If the person was a relative (Now deceased): Then you could obtain a limit range of records, mostly related to any arrest and court martial that may have taken place during their time in service. If there is any classified information it’s likely going to be redacted (and even if it’s not, you can’t “use it” or share it with anyone without risking legal issues of your own). You need to contact the DoD and they will give you the details of what records are available to you as a relative of a former service member.If the person is a relative (Still alive) - Unless they have granted you power of attorney or a court has because they can no longer attend to their personal or legal affairs, you cannot access their military records. You could certainly access legal databases and if their case is there because some aspects intersected with the civilian legal system, then you can obtain those records. However, you have no rights to any military records of the person if he or she is still alive and still capable of managing their affairs.If the records are historical - While the 1973 National Archives Fire (Referenced below) destroyed a number of personnel records, the DoD had some of the records backed up on microfiche and can locate them if necessary. If the individual is deceased and his or her records are in the system, you can file a Freedom of Information request and you can obtain any of the military records which can be released to the public.This is not a quick process, nor are the records likely to be “complete” or thorough as there have been more 20 million service members in the history fo the US military and many of the records contain errors of facts and spelling. You should be able to get a response within a few months to a year at the longest and the records will be redacted if they contain classified information and certain types of information covered by the Privacy Act of 1974.For a background check or just for the lulz - Not going to happen. Unless you are looking into someone’s background for a position requiring a Secret or Top Secret classification, you aren’t going to be able access military criminal records. If the person has a federal felony record related to their military, then you MIGHT be able to determine using a professional background screening service. However, if you wish detailed information just to satisfy an ordinary background screening, you are going to be disappointed.If you are just “curious” or you ‘checking someone out” then you are going to be out of luck. You don’t get to dig into military records just to satisfy your curiosity and you are likely to informed of just that when you begin to contact people at the DoD.My advice (For what it is worth): Decide on why you want or “need” the records and then decide if that reason is going to be satisfactory to the individual with whom you are going to have to communicate to obtain them.Reference:The 1973 Fire, National Personnel Records Center
How can I obtain copies of my grandfather's military records in the US, without access to his death certificate, etc?
If your grandfather’s records are from more 60 years ago you can get them online from the National Archives. If they are more recent you need to be next of kin in order to request them. No death certificate is required as far as I know. I requested my father’s records without having one. I recommend you visit the NA website: Veterans' Service Records
