Hope all is well with you, I am in need of your help locating my active duty medical records.
I've been trying since 2014 I sent requests to St. Louis several times, I went to my local Congress
Office what they got was the same partial treatment record that I already have, I even called into
The Whitehouse Hotline they went hunting and came up with the same partial record, I requested
my C-file with high hopes, but still nothing. I am frustrated, depressed and very much disappointed
with the whole situation. Kudos to Allan he steered me in some directions, but still no medical record,
he advised me to reach out to you. Thanks in advanced.
I am only familar with using NARA for SMRs and inservice personnel records:
However if a vet applies for SSDI they (NARA) often send service records to the SSA office,who is supposed to send them back promptly.
I could mot find any of your posts....sometimes buddy statements can help when med recs are missing.
Also the VA has an enhanced Duty to Assist when records cannot be found.
Is it possible the VA already has your SMRs?
The last time I used NARA they sent me my husband's Navy records but sent a letter informing me his USMC records were at my VARO- which is where they were supposed to be, as I had re- opened a claim.
this link might help too:
Thank you Ms.Berta, I've done all that and still nothing. The VA only have some of
what I have in my possession. My C-File has just a few pages of my treatment record
at this point I am a considered a lost solider I am at the end of the tunnel with no light
thanks for your time, but if by chance you come across anything that may help me, please feel
free to contact me on the forum or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a blessed day.
