USCT Research at Nat'l Archives
Of course I would be willing to pay someone to retrieve a copy of his record. A trip to D.C. is out of the question for me at this particular time. So assistance will be greatly appreciated.
I sent in the request form last year, but they returned it saying that no pension record exists for him. However, about 3 years ago, my cousin got the same letter when she tried to get her great-grandfather's pension record. During a business trip to D.C., she decided to make a quick stop by the Nat'l Archives to do a search for herself. Guess what? She found a thick, VERY VERY informative pension file for her ancestor! So, I don't have too much confidence in their staff's searches, since they probably have volumes of requests and may not do a thorough search.
