Dear Ms. Schoenemann,
Thank you for posting your inquiry on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog for any records related to your research by entering the following keywords “Institute of Medicine,” “veterans,” and “children.” We located 504 files units & 57 items in various record groups and collections that may be of interest to you. Please note that some of the records have been digitized and may be viewed using the Catalog. For access to non-digitized records, please contact the unit listed in the description.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from various NARA reference units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
