June Monthly Meeting

 

Reassembling a World War II Service Record

Featuring Thomas Richardson, Expert Archives Technician, National Personnel Records Center

Saturday, 11 June 2022, 10:00 a.m.

 

Learn how to research a World War II veteran’s service record if it was impacted by the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Records Center. Mr. Richardson will examine different types of document sources, databases, and ways you can reconstruct a service record from that time period. He will share his own experience of recreating his grandfather’s WWII record that was ninety-percent damaged in the fire.
