I will be making a trip to the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St Louis to research Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) of veterans, any service, discharged between 1912 and 1956. There was a fire at the NPRC in 1973 and up to 80% of Army/Army Air Corps/USAF records were damaged or destroyed. The NPRC staff has been salvaging and reconstructing damaged records and pulling in records from other locations so finding something is possible. Navy/USMC records are pretty much undamaged and complete. If you would like me to research your own or you veteran's OMPF please provide as much of the below listed information as you can to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .I am researching for many different groups/individuals. 12th Armored Division veterans and family members have priority. The information requested is: Name: Last, First, Middle; Service Number; Date of Birth; Place of Birth (city & state); Status: (Officer or Enlisted); Service Period (1939 and prior), (1940-1950)or (After 1950); Date of Death; Place of Death (city & state); State of Residence on Entry into Service; Parents Names. It is not necessary to have all the information, but if all you have is a name I dont think I can help you.
I will need your information no later than 28 February in order to submit my request for the records in time for my visit. Please contact me vis email for questions. I don't want to tie up the message board.
