    Seeking military records of Robert B Gory, Jr


      Hello, I’m trying to find out any information on my father, Robert B Gory, Jr., who is now deceased. I contact the St. Louis archives website and they gave me this information. After reviewing the attached document, I determined that your father was an Air Cargo Specialist in the 60th Aerial Port Squadron, 60th Air Base Group when he was discharged in Nov 1969. The 60th Aerial Port Squadron’s history for 1969 is in the 60th Military Airlift Wing’s history (Vols. I-III) on microfilm reel K3363.


      I’ve been trying to find a picture of my father or maybe his parents' names. He was born on July 1, 1950 and died on October 4, 1985, He served in Vietnam and was in the United States Air Force. Please If anyone can help me it would be most appreciated. Thank you for Your time.

          Dear Ms. Gory,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          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 a file on the 60th Air Base Group and 27 files of the 60th Military Airlift Wing Since the reel numbers all begin with K (including Reel K3363), the microfilm is still security classified and RDT2 will not be able to make the reel available to you. The original paper copy from which the film was created is still in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) and has been declassified. To obtain copies of these records, please follow the instructions on this page.


          Photographs of U.S. Air Force subjects (World War II 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!
