Reply From National Personnel Records Center

The following reply was received after requesting a copy of DD-214 from the National Personnel Records Center, St. Louis, Missouri for service in the U. S. Air Force from 1951 to 1955 (Korean War):

[Please do not respond to the following message. This message has been auto-generated by NPRC. _____________________________________________________________________

Thank you for submitting a request to the National Personnel Records Center. We have received your signature authorization for request number -----------. The record needed to answer your inquiry is not in our files. If the record were here on July 12, 1973, it would have been in the area that suffered the most damage in the fire on that date and may have been destroyed. The fire destroyed the major portion of records of Army military personnel for the period 1912 through 1959, and records of Air Force personnel with surnames Hubbard through Z for the period 1947 through 1963. Fortunately, there are alternate records sources that often contain information which can be used to reconstruct service record data lost in the fire; however, complete records cannot be reconstructed. We are mailing you NA Form 13075 (or NA Form 13055) which asks for additional information concerning the veterans' military service. Please use this form to provide us with as much information as you are able. This information will be used by our staff to help reconstruct service record data lost in the fire. The form will be mailed to you within the next 24 hours. Thank you. End of auto-generated message]
