    Seeking military record of 1LT Victor F Campbell

    Karen Marvin Newbie

      I am seeking the military records for First Lieutenant Victor F Campbell who was a Bronze Star Recipient. He served in the United States Army from  20 Dec 1944 to 02 Mar 1946 on Communications ship Apache in the Philippine Islands. His possible Service Number is 0-2027459. He enlisted in New York on 12 Oct 1943 and discharged on 20 Oct 1946.

          Dear Ms. Marvin,

           

          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 COVID-19 pandemic, the NPRC was closed from March 23 through June 23, 2020. As of June 24, the NPRC entered into Phase One of a gradual reopening process. The center is currently only servicing emergency requests associated with medical treatments, burials, homeless veterans, VA Home loan guarantees, and employment opportunities. If this is urgent, please see Emergency Requests and Deadlines. We apologize for any inconvenience.

           

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