          Martin,

           

          Found information on bariual

           

          Name: Martimiano N Mejia

          Birth Date: 21 abr 1926 (21 Apr 1926)

          Cemetery: Saint Francis Cemetery

          Burial or Cremation Place: Phoenix, Maricopa County (Maricopa), Arizona, United States of America

           

          Here is what I found in BIRLS on Fold3 they have him listed as Marti plus search the AAD RG 64 on NARA website and found his enlistment number. This should be enough information to request all service members records or OMPF files.

            Dear Mr. Mejia,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            In order to search for your father’s unit records, we suggest that you first request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) that may list his unit information. OMPFs and individual medical reports for enlisted men of the U.S. Army who were separated from the service after October 1912 and prior to 1955 are in the custody of NARA's National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. In many cases where 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. Please complete a GSA Standard Form 180 and mail it to NARA's National Personnel Records Center, (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138-1002. 

             

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