Request a World War I (WWI WW1) Veteran's Military Records

Our military records specialists are on-site at archival repositories nationwide and can access the WWI military service records or your veteran. We provide digital scans of the original military service records of your WWI veteran and can customize our research process to your specific needs. While WWI U.S. Navy and Marine Corps personnel records from WWI are complete, many WWI Army records from the Great War were damaged in the 1973 National Archives fire. We can help you to understand the experiences of a WWI veteran even if their military records were lost in the fire.
