    How to find out someone's unit/ fleet number?


      A friend has a picture of her mother stationed in Guam (around WWII) at Hospital #111 and is trying get some info about what unit/ fleet number that she was assigned to. Any ideas?

          Dear Mr. Wilson,


          Written requests for archival Morning Reports and Unit Rosters are not accepted. Individuals may only access these records by visiting our Archival Research Room in St. Louis, MO or by hiring an individual researcher to come and perform the search for you. Additionally, her Official Military Personnel Folder (OMPF) may be available to her or her next of kin. This record may contain her unit/ fleet number as well as information about her service. These records can be ordered. Here is more information about submitting these requests; Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF), Archival Holdings | National Archives


          If you or your designated representative decide to review the records, please notify us in advance of your visit so we can make the necessary arrangements. You will need to speak to an Attendant at 314-801-0850 to schedule an appointment to visit our Archival Research Room.


          Thank you so much for your inquiry!
