Dear Mr. Schoonover,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub.
We suggest contacting the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. Although the Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) was either damaged or destroyed in the 1973 fire, the Army and Air Force provided the National Archives with auxiliary records to assist in rebuilding records.
Please ask her to submit a SF-180 to the NPRC, 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138. She should include her maiden name as well as any married names she may have had during her service. If she doesn’t remember everything, please have her fill in estimations as they will help the NPRC staff to locate anything they have regarding her service.
We hope this information is helpful.
Dear Lee Schoonover,
Request military service records held by the NPRC, veterans and the next-of-kin of deceased veterans can use their web interface at vetrecs.archives.gov (click here). Or they and others can use the Standard Form (SF) 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records (click here). All of the information here is credited to http://dd214.us/methods.html
We hope you find this information useful. Good Luck
