|Welcome to our online military personnel records request system.
Use our system to create a customized order form to request military personnel record
information for yourself or your relatives.
You may use this system if you are:
A military veteran or next of kin of a deceased military member
The next of kin can be any of the following: surviving spouse (that has not remarried),
father, mother, son, daughter, sister, or brother.
If you are not the veteran or next of kin, you must complete the Standard Form 180 (SF
180). See Access to Military Records by the General Public for more details.
