          Dear Mr. Moody,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Records of Proceedings of General Courts Martial, 1866 - 1951 in the Records of the Office of the Judge Advocate General (Navy) (Record Group 125) but these records have not been digitized.  For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov. They also include Marine Corps cases.

           

          Additionally, we located 51 record series related to investigations in the Records of Headquarters, European Theater of Operations, United States Army (World War II) (Record Group 498); 75 record series related to investigations in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338). For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at Archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          U.S. Army general courts-martial (GCM) records from 1917 to 1976 are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For more information about the records, please contact RL-SL via email at stl.archives@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1, RDT2, and RL-SL. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

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