Prior Service - Retirement Service Records 

Service Records

If you have been discharged from military service, your personnel files are stored at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).  They are the official repository for records of military personnel who have been discharged from the United States Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy or Coast Guard. 

All prior service members and veterans can request copies of their military service records from the National Archives veteran service records office.  For any adjustments to your record, you will also have to contact your state office and request adjustment to your record. 

https://www.archives.gov/veterans

 

If you have been discharged from the National Guard, NGB Forms, to include NGB Forms 22, and 23, submit a Standard Form (SF) 180 to the state headquarters and respective branch you were discharged from or that you served in.  States are required by law, to maintain these records for 99 years.

SF 180, Request Pertaining To Military Records
