Research A Korean War Veteran

Request a Korean War Veteran's Military Records

Our expert research specialists are on-site at archival research facilities nationwide and can access your Korean War veteran’s military service records. Our unique research process is essential to understanding the experiences of individual military veterans of the Korean War since the vast majority of Korean War Army personnel records were lost in the 1973 National Archives fire (Korean era Coast Guard, Navy and Marine military personnel service records were not lost in the fire). Our expertise enables us to reconstruct the service history of your individual Korean War veteran and to give you a glimpse of the experiences that he or she had during the war-even if their military service records were lost in the 1973 fire.
