    Seeking early 86th Army Reserve Command Records

    Elliot Schneider Ranger

      Hello NARA,


      Need help determining and verifying the earlier records of the 86th USARCOM Organizational Records and General Order records, and I think they maybe hidden in the 5th Army Records. Here is the Accession #s I was given below from the Department of the Army.


      Department Of The Army HQ 5Th Army FT Sam Houston 69; Acc. # 76-0473,


      HQ, Department Of The Army HQ 5TH Army FT Sam Houston 70-72; Acc. # 76-0466


      Department Of The Army FT Sam Houston TX 74; Acc. # 76-0150 5th US Army Ft. Sheridan, IL

          Dear Mr. Schneider,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Records of the Fifth Army, 1959-1978 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338) that includes General Order 129 for March 11, 1970 of the 86th USARCOM within Accession # 338-76-0150. For access to and/or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov. We were unable to locate any records of the 86th in Accessions 338-76-0473 or 338-76-0466.


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