    Searching for records & photos of David Wormald


      Hi, I would appreciate any and all help searching for military records/photos and any other civilian information on my Dad, David A. Wormald,  please? He was born on Aug 10,1944 in Methuen,MA and died on Sept 5, 1984 in Connecticut. I believe he served in the USMC late 1950's-mid 1960's. His Mother's Name was Alice Wormald and his Father's Name was Henry Wormald. His father and Brothers, I believe all or most, also served in various branches of our military. His Brothers names were Henry, James, Robert, Thomas, John(Jack) and his Sister's names were Joan and Shirley. I believe all were born in Massachusetts area. Thank you,

          Dear Ms. Moore,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We suggest that you request a copy of their Official Military Personnel Files  (OMPFs). OMPFs those who served in the U.S. Armed Service who were separated from service after 1958 and prior to May 1994 are located at NARA's National Personnel Records Center (NRPC), (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138-1002.  The OMPF will include basic genealogical information such as place and date of birth, schools attended, previous addresses, former jobs, and more depending on what he provided when he enlisted.  Additionally, training, duty stations, and correspondence may also be included.  To request these records, please mail a completed GSA Standard Form 180 to NPRC.  You also may fax the form to 314-801-9195 OR view the record by visiting the NPRC Archival Research Room in St. Louis, MO. Veterans and their next of kin also may use eVetRecs to request records. See eVetRecs Help for instructions.


          Due to the coronavirus public health emergency, the National Personnel Records Center is servicing only urgent requests related to homeless veterans, medical emergencies, and funerals which may be faxed to 314-801-0764.  We thank you for your patience and look forward to resuming normal operations when the public health emergency has ended.


          Photographs of various U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps activities dating from 1940 to 2007 are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS). Please contact RDSS via email at stillpix@nara.gov and their web site is https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/photographs-dc.html.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


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