Dear Ms. Collins,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you request 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 1958 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. You also may fax the form to 314-801-9195. Veterans and their next of kin can also use eVetRecs to request records. See eVetRecs Help for instructions. For more information see Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF), Archival Records Requests.
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.
Various data file listings of American prisoners of war are in the custody of the Electronic Records Division (RDE) and are available via AAD (Access to Archival Databases) on the National Archives website at https://aad.archives.gov/aad/. We searched the series Records of World War II Prisoners of War in the Records of the Office of the Provost Marshal General (Record Group 389) that includes a record for a Cpl. Hubert G Dewey.
We also searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Series: European Name Index to the Series "Case Files, 1944-1949", 1944 - 1949 in the Records of the Office of the Judge Advocate General (Army) (Record Group 153) that includes a card reference to a Cpl. Hubert Dewey (see image 618) in File Unit “De Jouvenel, Madame THRU Dluski, John M., Sgt.”. The top right hand corner of the card includes the Case File Number “100-477” and lastly on the card “(c-45) 30” that indicates he is mentioned in the file unit 100-477 - POW Camp 98 (Palermo, Italy) on page 30. The file unit is located in the series Persons and Places Dossier Files, 1945 - 1948 in Record Group 153. For access to and/or copies of this file, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the file unit information in your email.
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 RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
