Dear Mr. Hensley,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub.
The National Archive may have medical files from while the veteran was still in the military. Any medical records created by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are in the custody of the VA. Veterans and their families are able to obtain the Official Military Personnel File for the purposes of benefits. If this will assist you in any way, please fill out the SF-180 and send it in to the appropriate location as outlined in the form.
You may wish to have a representative of the VA submit, on your husband’s behalf, a request to the Joint Services Records Research Center (JSRRC), Kingman Building 2C08, 7701 Telegraph Road, Alexandria, VA 22315. The JSRRC conducts searches to support disability claims relating to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
We hope this information is helpful.
