All US military records are maintained in the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, Missouri 63138, which is actually just North of the City in North St. Louis County.You can write them, you can download and send them a Military Standard Form SF 180, the official records request form, you can go through your county or State Veterans agency or even visit the site in person. You can also hire a contractor to independently research the records, but that will cost you money and I believe your personal records will require your verified personal authorization anyway.The Records Center is quite familiar to me, sinceit is in my home town,after my overseas years, I served one of my Army Reserve summer assignments there refiling total individual file folders from Service Number order to Social Security Number order. LOTS of paper back then, floors and floors of manila file folders in racks maybe 12 feet high, with many complete files strewn on the floor between racks and pages kicked by passersby. That disorder certainly contributed to the horrible fire that completely destroyed many career records. (Was great fun looking up the service evaluation records of Famous People …)I much later landed a Pentagon contract to clean up some of their awful labor relations problems by clearing immense backlogs of grievances to be processed and arbitrations to be handled.
