      How do I find daily unit reports from the World War II Army Air Forces who served in the Aleutians?

          Mr. Fischer,

           

          The National Archives at St. Louis holds the Army Morning Reports and Rosters for World War II.

           

          Army rosters and Army morning reports through 1959 are now in the legal custody of the National Archives and Records Administration.  However, Army rosters for 1944-1946 were destroyed in accordance with the General Records Schedule and are no longer available.

           

          Images of these documents are stored on microfilm reels. Unfortunately, photocopies of the filmed images are often illegible.  Due to the poor quality of the film reproduction, we do not offer photocopies of microfilmed rosters or morning reports through the mail, nor do we offer to sell duplicate reels of morning report microfilm.

           

          If you would like to personally view the rosters or morning reports, we will make them available, by appointment only, in our Archival Research Room located at the National Personnel Records Center, Archival Research Room, 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138.  For a small fee, you may print copies of the pages you want from the microfilm. To schedule an appointment, please contact the Archival Research Room in advance, by phone at (314) 801-0850 or by email at stlarr.archives@nara.gov.

           

          An alternative to a personal visit is to hire an independent researcher to view these rosters or reports for you. For a listing of potential independent researchers, please visit the following website:  http://www.archives.gov/research/hire-help/.
