Hello Mr. Turner,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub!
You may be able to request Navy, and Marine Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) from the National Archives in St. Louis depending on when they were discharged from service. These records are releasable to the public when the date of separation becomes 62 years from today’s date. Navy and Marine Corps OMPFs will contain information such as place of enlistment, duty stations, education and military training, occupational specialty, etc. These records may also contain military battles and campaigns, letters of correspondence, medical exams and treatments, and emergency contact data.
You may view these original records or request copies for a fee. We recommend contacting the St. Louis location to make an inquiry. Please ask for both the Navy and Marine files in case both are releasable.
