    Military Service Records

    Veterans (surviving spouses and specific next-of-kin) may request military service records from the National Archives.

    In the past, Veterans could obtain military service records by obtaining, completing and submitting via the U.S. Postal Service a pre-printed Standard Form-180—an inconvenient, laborious and lengthy process, at best.

    Advances in technology now allow The National Archives to provide on-line, facsimile, SF-180 or letter requesting of military service records.

    For a full explanation of the current military records request process, click on the image below to view the National Archives Veterans Service Records web page.

    The Paper Safe

    Click to open the Home page of the Associates of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. web page.

    From the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. web site: when a Veteran dies or becomes unable to make important decisions, family all too often cannot locate the financial and personal information required to carry out the final wishes or intentions of that Veteran.

    The "Paper Safe" was created to organize and record that information in one document. A will or trust, notwithstanding, a completed Paper Safe can greatly help survivors during a stressful time.

    The AVVA Paper Safe is linked below in two versions: (1) An Adobe file to be printed and then completed while off-line. (2) A fillable Adobe file to be completed and printed while on-line.
