My late husband, Sidney W. Green served on a US Navy ship during Korean War and in combat during the conflict. The National Personnel Records Center can't find his records. How can I find out which US Navy ship he was assigned to? Are there records of ship personnel available which will prove his military service?
Dear Ms. McCollam,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
When the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) sends a notification that the records could not be located, NPRC requests additional information. If more information is provided, then the case is reopened. You may check the status of your three requests via Check the Status of a Request for Records at NPRC webpage.
We hope this information is helpful!
