You may obtain a copy of Form SF 180 from one of our Department Service Offices or from your local County Veterans Service Office. 

Request for Military Records (SF-180)

Click here to request records on-line 

Complete the form with the fullest amount of information you know about your military service. 

The Service officers can assist you, or you can send the completed SF 180 to: 

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

Please do not wait for records to arrive to file your claim. This will only delay the process, resulting in you not getting all you deserve. See your Post Service Officer immediately if you need to file a claim.
