    Seeking information about Captain Brady


      I've got an old TSF EMERSON. I've bought it to a french farmer who lives in the village of GAVRAY in Normandy (near the D Day beaches).That old radio TSF was the property of an American officer who was hosted in that Norman farm during WWII, between 1944 and 1946. I would be very interested in getting information about this American officer or his family. His name is Paul BRADY or BIRDY or BEARDY. His rank was Captain and his unit the SIGNAL CORPS. According to the information I've got, he was in charge of Airfields in the area of GAVRAY.

          Dear Mr. Audrain,


          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 officers of the U.S. Army who were separated from the service after June 1917 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.  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.


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