    Seeking character witnesses from crew of USS Constellation (CV-64)

    tracy robinson Newbie

      Airman Tracy Lee Robinson, V-1 Air Department  from 1993-1994 served on the USS Constellation (CV- 64). He kicked out of the Navy while suffering from post-Concussion syndrome. His condition been over looked and needs character witnesses for his VA claim. He has been struggling for 24 years since 1994-1995 with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) PTSD. No diagnosis other than separation medical survey showing he had head injuries.

          Dear Mr. Robinson,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          For medical records of veterans who left the Navy after January 31, 1994 and prior to 2014, contact the Department of Veterans Affairs, Records Management Center, ATTN: Release of Information, 4300 Goodfellow Blvd. Bldg# 104, St. Louis, MO 63120.

           

          For a listing of those who served on the USS Constellation from 1993-1994, we suggest requesting copies of the ship’s Navy personnel diaries (also known as muster rolls). Navy personnel diaries for 1976 and later years are in the custody of the Navy Personnel Command (PERS-00J6), 5720 Integrity Drive, Millington, TN 38055.  These provide a listing of anyone who reported on-board each day, anyone who left, anyone who did not report, and anyone who reenlisted. They also include copies of the Officer Distribution Control Report (ODCR) and the Enlisted Distribution Verification Report (EDVR). Individuals are listed by name, rank/rate and social security number.

           

          Also, you may wish to contact Navy veteran organizations and forums to try to locate former shipmates.

           

          We hope this information is helpful.
