    Seeking information regarding car accident

    ron Buchholz Newbie

      Seeking information on a car accident on Feb. 1962 of 3 US Army friends near St. Nazaire, France. They were stationed at Camp de Gron in St. Nazaire. One of the soldiers was killed and other two were injured. I only knew them by first names, One killed was Joe, other was Jimmy. Thanks

          Dear Mr. Buchholz,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          Besides our response to your previous request, we suggest that you request morning reports from that time frame for the 67th Transportation Company. Morning reports for Army units dated 1960 - September 1974 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. 


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NPRC will continue servicing requests ONLY associated with medical treatments, burials, homeless veterans seeking admittance to a homeless shelter, and those involving the VA Home Loan program. 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 this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          It may be possible to check translated newspaper archives from St. Nazaire, France or by checking the Stars and Stripes and Army Times for any articles that may have been written about the accident. 


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