          Dear Mr. Colon,

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

          Copies of most of the monthly rosters from 1947-59 for Army units are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at St. Louis, ATTN: RL-SL, P.O. Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138-0757 or via email at stl.archives@nara.gov.

           

          If the soldier separated from service prior to 1957, you may also request the soldier’s Official Military Personnel File (OMPF).  OMPFs for soldiers that separated after 1957 may be requested by the soldier or next of kin. OMPFs of those who served in the Korean War are in the custody of the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. In many cases where U.S. Army personnel records were destroyed in the 1973 fire, proof of service can be provided from other records such as morning reports, payrolls, and military orders, and a certificate of military service will be issued. For more information see https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/.

           

          We hope this information is helpful.  Best of luck with your research!
