          Dear Ms. Frazee,

          Thank you for posting your question to the History Hub!


          We recommend requesting his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF).  This file will contain basic demographic information, military service related documentation, and correspondence.  Service members’ travel, station locations, and campaign locations with dates will also be included. Letters between the service member, their family, and military offices can sometimes indicate reasons for sudden changes in service location or separation.  These records are releasable to the public when the date of separation becomes 62 years from today’s date. Please submit a completed Request Pertaining to Military Records form to the following address for access to this record.
