At a recent Tea & Sympathy, we discussed military records in genealogy research. This video expands this discussion. In it we will examine various types of military records available from the National Archives and Records Administration and the National Personnel Records Center. Along with the brief overview of available records, we also demonstrate how to complete the form necessary to request most of these veteran records. Thank you for watching!
