NCPMA-C is what NARA and NPRC use in their attention line when processing requests and information on discharged or deceased military personnel.
So this is how a request for information would look like for information that that particular department was requesting information from would look like. It sounds like its a department # to solely request information on deceased or discharge service members.
Here acronyms as follows for the different branches. NCPMA (Army), MCPMF (USAF), NCPMN (Navy, USMC, Coast Guard).
National Personnel Records Center
National Archives and Records Administration
9700 Page Avenue
St. Louis, Mo. 63132-5100
Hope this helps,

Dear Mr. Silverman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
This is what the office code stood for in the NARA Hierarchy:
N = National Archives and Records Administration
C = Office of Federal Records Centers
P = National Personnel Records Center
M = Military Personnel Records
A = Army Reference Branch
C = Correspondence Section
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
