Requesting Replacement of Awards and Medals

Have you lost or misplaced your military service medals, decorations, or awards that you OR a family member earned and want to replace them?   Go to www.military.com/benefits/records-and-forms/military-awards-medals-decorations.html for information on how to request replacements from the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served. 

Requesting Replacements of Military Service Records

Is your DD-214 difficult to read and/or you want to replace it for a new copy? Go to www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records for information on how to request a copy of your OR a family member’s Service Record.  Military personnel records can include DD-214’s/Separation Documents, service personnel records found within the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF), and medical records. Military personnel records can be used not only for proving military service information but also as a valuable tool in genealogical research.
