    Searching for biological father.

    MaryAnn Gentry Newbie

      Looking for full name and DOB of my biological father. USAF, Edwards AFB 1973. 6510 Security Police Squadron. “Rick” Vallet (or other spelling variation). National Archives is not responding to non-emergency requests at this time.

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          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. Please check archives.gov/veterans for updates to the NPRC operating hours and status. We apologize for any inconvenience.


          We found a few resources available online that list 6510 Security Police Squadron and might help narrow down some other name variations such as this one here. If you believe he served in Vietnam, Family Search has a great resource page that lists records available here.


          You may also want to do some research on Ancestry and Family Search. If you can narrow down some name variations, you may be able to find city directories, vital records such as birth or marriage, or yearbook photos.  Family Search does not require a subscription and can be accessed with a free account. Ancestry does require a subscription, but many public libraries offer free access with your library card.


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck on your research!

            Hi MaryAnn,

            Welcome to History Hub


            I found a possible match, birthdate 1947, would make him 26 in 1973.

            I hope you find your birth father.
