    Looking for service records of Mathias Lewis Rodgers

    Jem Rodgers Newbie

      I would be welcome for any information: Mathias Lewis Rodgers born in in 1937 or  938 he was born in St Louis, MO. He was in the US Army. I do not know when he went in but I do know he was an MP in 1962 in San Antonio, Texas. Fort Sam Houston. I know this to be true as that was where and when I was born. He meet my mother in Texas and they were married I believe on 8/1/1961. I do not know much about him as I only meet him once and for not long. I did try to gain his records but they said they could not locate them. Would appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.

          Dear Mr. Rodgers,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs and individual medical reports for those who served in the U.S. Army after 1958 and before October 16, 1992 are in the custody of NARA's National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. Please complete a GSA Standard Form 180 and mail it to NARA's National Personnel Records Center, (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138-1002. If there is any information requested by the form that you do not know, you may omit it or provide estimates (such as for dates), but the more information you provide, the easier it will be to locate the correct file if it survived the fire. For more information see Request Military Service Records.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NPRC is closed except for emergencies. Currently, NPRC will continue servicing requests ONLY associated with medical treatments, burials, and homeless veterans seeking admittance to a homeless shelter. If your request is urgent, please see Emergency Requests and Deadlines. Please refrain from submitting non-emergency requests such as replacement medals, administrative corrections, or records research until NPRC returns to pre-COVID staffing levels. Please check archives.gov/veterans for updates to the NPRC operating hours and status. We apologize for any inconvenience.


          Their marriage license may include additional information about him. For information about locating marriage records in Texas, see https://www.dshs.texas.gov/vs/marr-div/


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
