Recently, in late April, after inquiring about my
father's service record, I received mail from:

National Personnel Records Center
Military Personnel Records
9700 Page Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63132-5100

Enclosed was a National Archive Form 13075 and 13055
to assist them in searching. (I believe these forms
are used when they have difficulty in locating a
record.) The mailing informed of a 1973 file at the
National Personnel Records Center when millions of
records for Army veterans dating between 1912 and 1959
and Air Force records prior to 1964 for names A - H
were lost.

This mailing was >from an on-line request to
http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/ for records, but the
NPRC can also be contacted by fax at 314-801-9049 or
by mail at: NPRC-WEB, 9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, MO
63132-5100.

It seems to me that military service records may still
be requested through St. Louis. I have noted the
Maryland address for reference. However, is there
something about the St. Louis record center that I
don't know?
