As a former Military Veteran, have you ever thought about obtaining your Military Service Records? Military Service Awards/Ribbons, Copies of your DD-214 or other military Records?
As all vets should know our service records were sent to St Luis, MO and placed in the National Center Records Archives, and sometime back there was a fire and some older records were lost. But if interested here is what you do. Click the link and "NOTE at the end of the website link is GOV" short for Government website so something this official never clicks, on a .com site.
Once you click the link look on top for VETERAN'S SERVICE RECORDS
and click, Now look for Military Service Records and read instructions and obtain the above documents and awards.
I saw this posted in one of my old military unit newsletters and it was a year before I even tried and took about 4 to 8 weeks for all of it to arrive. Now I will tell you that when you send in your request you will be given a number (Example 321-765432) Make sure to keep that number as the center gets a lot of request for copies and if anything gos back to your Military Branch of Service that number will be needed for follow up. So be sure to keep the number given.
Be Safe, Happy Travels and Trails. Enjoy them Drives and Dives.
