Guest Grec09

Question

I took a mental exam in Air Force in 1998.

Its not in my C-file. 

I am finding conflicting info of where it would be. And how to get thit.

Can anyone chime in with understanding where the mental record would be and how to get it?

You could write directly to your duty stations and try to get them.  The army threw away all my records from basic and AIT.  They lost a bunch of records.

Thanks.

The base just emailed me that they sent all the records to National Archive. But National Archives told me before they dont have anything.

I sent a request to NPRC askign specifically for mental records. I guess I will have to wait and see their reply.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble finding your mental health record from your Air Force exam in 1998. It can definitely be frustrating to navigate conflicting information and figure out where to look for important records.

One resource that you might find helpful is restore-mentalhealth.com. They have a lot of great information about mental health resources and services for individuals looking to get access to their mental health records. It might be worth checking out to see if they have any tips or advice that could point you in the right direction.

The last one I sent in took about 2 mo. but don't hold your breath it could take longer. VA is taking about 8 mo.

I missed it in the ordinal post above. Your mental exam in Air Force in 1998 would not be in your C-File unless you submitted it to the VA or filed a claim for MH.  Have you tried to contact the location where you did the MH exam? I had to request the records on the below forms. On the SF-180 make sure you check the medical records box (leave the others blank) and fill in the section that list the location where the records are/were located.
