Military Records and replacement medals

Postby Niner Alpha » Sun May 14, 2006 9:42 pm

This was posted here before but the copy of the ezboard link somehow lost something in the translation.

If you want copies of your records or replacements of your medals, you can get them. And... next of kin can do the same . Check out these related government sites.

The above are confusing if you want to get a medal replacement for yourself of if a next of kin wishes to do so. If so....start here.

FYI,
Just remember that if you're researching for WWII veterans records that there's the possiblity that his or her records might have been lost in the fire at the NPRC some years ago. :( If you have their discharge papers at least it's a start to now be placed in NPR system. A stamped embossed document certifying the veteran had served will be mailed to you! :)
Take it from me, I went through all of this when researching my father-in-law's records some months ago when all we had were, luckily, just his discharge papers and a record of his medals.
Otherwise veterans of the Korean and Vietnam campaign will fair better with having their DD214's survive the fires since they were stored in different areas of the NPRC. If you run into any problems just contact me and I'll try to assist you im some means.
Good Luck!

I started the process online for the medals just for the hell of it. They wanted some kinda certified thing from me and I just dropped the idea. Lo and behold a few months later I got all my medals anyway. One more thing to relegate to the back of the closet.

Thanks for this site. I wonder if you can get your Company records from when you were in Nam. Should be very interesting. :) Ted W. wimpy/coyote
