    Seeking receipt of Form 180 & records of 41st Field Artillery Regiment

    Todd Hayes Newbie

      I faxed a request for my Army records (form 180) on 10/01/2020. How do i find out if it was received? I was enlisted and on active duty from 1988 to 1992. My D.O.B. is 09/29/1969. I was also in the Gulf War with the 6th Battalion, 41st Field Artillery Regiment, 7th Corps and I am looking for combat information that might be out there. Things like movements , our battle with the Republican Guard , injuries , deaths, etc.

          Dear Mr. Hayes,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 29 series in the Records of U.S. Central Command (Record Group 518) regarding “units.” We also located the Military Award Case Files Relating to the Persian Gulf War, 8/1/1990 - 8/31/1991 and the Operational Files Relating to the Persian Gulf War, 1983 - 1992 in the Records of the Army Staff (Record Group 319) that relate to VII Corps and the Gulf War. For information about these series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov. We were unable to locate specific records of the 41st Field Artillery Regiment during the Gulf War.

           

          In addition, we located the series VII Corps Maps and Overlays of the Persian Gulf War, 1990 - 1998 in the Records of U.S. Central Command (Record Group 518) that consists of maps and overlays of operations during the first Persian Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm). For information about this series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC) via email at carto@nara.gov.

           

          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 & RDSC.
