Army Records

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

I was treated for about 5 months by a psychiatrist at Hunter AAF in Georgia in 1971 just before I was discharged. I cannot find these records. When I send in information requests to HAAF I am told all records would be at St Louis. St Louis says they have no records. The shrink I say did say at my proposed court marshall that I had some mental problems. My military lawyer told me to just take the 635-212 because if I did not I would probably get jail plus bad conduct discharge. The only crime I committed was to deman help and tell some 1st Lt. that I was not leaving his office until I got it. I was arrested and charged with disobeying a direct order. The medical records from HAAF would show that I was on anti-psychotic meds and was pretty much out of my head. How do I find these records if they exist. I was in hospital for two weeks for some sort of lung condition and that disappeared as well at Ft Lenardwood.

John, It may be that they where destroyed in the 1973 fire in St. Louis. Have you tried the National Archieves? Ancestory.com sometimes has that info, but cost, and you find kin folk you don't want to find. Also, have you tried the National Personnel Center here in San Antonio, it might be for the Air Force, but the Army would have one also.

John here's a link to Winn Army Community Hospital http://www.winn.amedd.army.mil/

Contact them and check. Generally all in-patient hospital records are kept at the NPRC in St Louis, MO. In-patient records are not kept with individual personnel medical records but are kept w/the archived hospital records. Check w/the NPRC again, under the hospital's records.
