    Seeking father's military history


      Hello! I have requested my deceased father's official military history, however, I don't know what branch of the military he served in. His name was Howard Melworm and he was born in the Bronx, NY.  I put in the request and I wonder will I need to do that for each branch of the military? Thank you!

          Good afternoon Jill.

            Dear Ms. Hillyer,


            Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!


            Once the center begins a case for a request an initial search will be conducted. If a file is not located we will send a form to solicit more information to conduct a more detailed search.



            Due to the coronavirus public health emergency, National Archives research rooms and museums are closed to the public until further notice and the National Personnel Records Center is servicing only urgent requests related to homeless veterans, medical emergencies, and funerals.  We thank you for your patience and look forward to resuming normal operations when the public health emergency has ended.


            We hope this information is helpful.
