      Hello, I am looking for information on Ivo Henry. He was in the Army and I am looking for any records you have on him. Thanks

          Dear Ms. Stauffer,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Access to Archival Databases (AAD) but were unable to locate a World War II enlistment record for Ivo Henry.

           

          We suggest that you obtain a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). 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 also searched Ancestry and located All Military Results for Ivo Henry. There may be a fee for using Ancestry to access digitized records. However, you may view these records online at one of NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/.

           

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