How to I determine if my relative is in the WW1 draft card database ? If so, how do I access a copy ? Thanks for your help!
Hi, I've been reading through some MRs for WWII (mid-1945) and found a category for a "physical class" or "physical profile" on lists of men being transferred between units. The other categories listed for each man included rank, name, ASN, MCO, MOS, ASR, then physical class (or profile), and race. Physical class looks like it was categorized as… Show more

Seeking father's service number & enlistment records. I would love to have my Daddy's he passed a few years ago and we were so close.

Hello, I am looking for information on Freddie (or Frederick) Greckel. ASN 17165270, DOB 3 Oct 1923. Enlistment date of 3 Dec 1942, from Fort Crook, Nebraska. I believe he was in a US army medical unit and am trying to find out if he was attached to a hospital in the European Theater. Any help would be appreciated.
I have come across several images that were sourced to NARA. I have not been able to figure out how to enter the information provided to get to those listings. This is one example: NARA, RG 111, Signal Corps Collection, No. 83584. Any assistance is appreciated!
Hi, hoping someone here can help me with my search on my dad's WWII military service, specifically his hospital stay while in Europe. My dad was in the 320th GFAB/HQ battery of the 82nd Airborne.
