Re: Military Records: Good News/Bad News
In Response To: Military Records: Good News/Bad News ()
Perhaps someone can advise or assist. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
Like Nina, I too was told by the Military Personnel Records Ctr. in St. Louis that my grandfather's military records were destroyed in the fire.
They did however, mail me a form titled, "Military Service Certification." In addition to his name, it indicated his service record #, enlistment and discharge dates. I phoned them back to request that they indicate his Rank and possibly division; as I'd extracted that information from his headstone.
His vitals are as follows:
Wenford E. Darden
Unfortunately grandfather died bef. my birth and my grandmother preceded him in death. They were survived by very young children that were not passed on their families records or personal effects.
