Dear Mr. McGee,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Please complete the online form titled Check the Status of a Clinical & Medical Treatment Records Request.
We hope this is helpful.
Thank you for the reply, but this was not helpful. This link only works if I initiated the request. The request was initiated by the VBA for a disability claim. I would like to know why its taken over a year and counting to send my records to the VA?

Dear Mr. McGee,
Thank you for posting your follow-up request to History Hub!
Then, your Veterans Service Officer (VSO) will need to inquire on your behalf. The VA Toll Free telephone number is 1-800-827-1000 and should connect you to the nearest VA office. Please keep in mind that many OMPFs (but not all) contain both personnel and former active duty health records, but the service branches discontinued retiring the health record portion to the NPRC in the 1990s. Your records may have been part of this transition.
Due to the resurgence of COVID-19 infection in the local communities possibly caused by the Delta variant, the NPRC is operating at a reduced capacity. As of August 2, 2021, the NPRC has reduced its on-site staffing to 10 percent of the workforce. While NPRC remains in this state, the staff will continue to service emergency requests associated with medical treatments, burials, and homeless veterans trying to gain admittance to a homeless shelter. Please check archives.gov/veterans for updates to the NPRC operating hours and status.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
