Hello Ms. Ettorre,
Thank you for contacting History Hub regarding how to order original military pension records. You may order records online or by mail with this hyperlink.
Or, you may review the pension file in person for free at Washington D.C. National Archives. You may make copies or take pictures if you pull the pension record.
I hope this information is helpful.
