    Seeking IDPF of 2nd Lt Roger M Currier


      I am trying to discover where and how 2nd Lt Roger M Currier died on April 21, 1946. I know his body along with many others were returned to the United States Oct 10, 1947 on the US ARMY TRANSPORT HONDA KNOT at the San Francisco, California Docks. He was in the 330th Troop Carrier Squadron US ARMY AIR CORPS and fought apparently in the Pacific Theater during WWII.

          Dear Mr. Lagasse,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          The information you seek may be contained in his Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF). IDPFs from 1940-1976 for personnel with surnames that begin with A-L are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL), P.O. Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002. For access to these records, please contact RL-SL via email at stl.archives@nara.gov.


          The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has custody of microfilm copies of operational records relating to U.S. Army Air Force/U.S. Air Force units. We searched the Air Force History index to the microfilm and located 8 entries that pertain to the 330th Troop Carrier Squadron. Please read the brief Abstract to determine which records you are interested in and click on the specific PDF icon. In the PDF listing, the IRISREF is the microfilm reel number and note the FRAME and FRAMELST numbers for the location on the reel. Since the reel numbers begin with B, please contact RDT2 via email at archives2reference@nara.gov for access to them.


          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 RL-SL and RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
