Where are my mdical records?

Recommended Posts

if i left andersen afb(active duty/dod) and went to san antonio (va clinic). Would i need to request my medical records from andersen and san antonio va.

Or will the san antonio va have both records?

Also, is there anyway to get medical records from basic training. I was in basic in 2006.

You can google how to get your all your military records, it should show the website for the National Records Center, and a link there will take you right to the page to request your records, they should have all of them from your pre-enlistment physical at the MEPS station, till your exit physical at the end of your enlistment. 

But don't expect to get them over night, can take a few months.

Thank you andyman. A while back I sent off for my records to be retrieved from the NPRC. They sent me a letter back saying that my records arent there. medical or personnel. Any other ideas??

I assume you mean you sent them a SF 180 request.

When I did this many years ago to get my deceased husband's records, they sent me his Navy records but told me the USMC SMRs and 201 file was with the Buffalo VARO.

That is where the USMC records were supposed to be so I knew the RO had them.

Did they indicate where the records might be in the letter?

Somewhere here under a search is where military records might be found,if they are not at a RO due to an open claim or at the NARA.

I think I am wrong...the VA used to "retire" SMRs etc to a facility somewhere years ago, but they don't do that any more,......

I wonder if the VARO still has your records from the last decision they gave you.

Obviously with your 80% now, VARO Did have them at some point...and might still have them...

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
