    Ft McPherson Military Court or Tribunal Records

    NATHAN KATOGIR Newbie

      Hi:

      In the 1970s or 80s my attorney mother (Sarah Mallas Wayman) argued some cases defending soldiers in the court at Ft McPherson (Atlanta) GA 3rd Army headquarters. Is there a way to get documents or transcripts concerning those cases? She is now retired, in a facility, near death and seeing them would give her real joy.

       

      Can someone please point me in the right direction?

      Thank you.
