      How can I get all my military records? I'm trying to retrieve my medical records and a copy of my DD-214.

          Dear Mr. Gaither,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We suggest that you request a copy of your Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs for those who separated from the U.S. Armed Forces after 1958 and before October 2002 are in the custody of NARA's National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. In many cases where Army and Air Force personnel records were destroyed in the 1973 fire, proof of service can be provided from other records such as morning reports, payrolls, and military orders, and a certificate of military service will be issued. Navy and Marine Corps OMPFs were not affected by the fire. 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. Veterans and their next of kin also may use eVetRecs to request records. See eVetRecs Help for instructions. For more information, see Request Military Service Records.

           

          The medical records depend on your branch of service and date of separation. Individual medical reports of veterans who left the Army (before October 16, 1992), Air Force (before May 1994), Navy (before January 31, 1994), or Marine Corps (before May 1994) 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 the 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.

           

          Official Military Personnel Files (OMPFs) for those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and were separated after September 30, 2002 (Army); after September 30, 2004 (Air Force); after 1994 (Navy); and after 1998 (Marine Corps) are available in electronic format via https://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/.

           

          For medical records of veterans who left the Army (after October 15, 1992), Air Force (after April 30, 1994), Navy (after January 31, 1994), or the Marine Corps (after April 30, 1994) and before 2014, please contact the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Records Management Center (VARMC), 4300 Goodfellow Blvd. Bldg. 104, St. Louis, MO 63120. Please write or call them. The telephone number is 1-888-533-4558.

          For medical records of veterans who left the Air Force after 2013 or enlisted National Guard not on active duty, please contact the AF STR Processing Center, ATTN: Release of Information, 3370 Nacogdoches Road, Suite 116, San Antonio, TX 78217.
