    Veteran info?

    What is a good website to look up family service members? Records, awards, and stuff?

    Thanks, Scott

    you have to request service records from the NATIONAL ARCHIVES, I don't believe there is any site that lets you plug in a name and poof, a persons military service history pops up.

    at least I hope there isn't one, I like to believe my military records wouldn't be accessible to the general public, at least while I'm still alive. after I'm dead I pretty much wouldn't care

    You can contact your local veterans service office. Here in Ohio each county has one. There is a formalized application process that the office helped me with for my dad’s records. I listed the reason for genealogical purposes. About 6-8 weeks later a big yellow envelope showed up in my mailbox. It had about 25 pages in it.

    62 years after you leave the service your entire MPR become open to the public. Until that date it takes an FOIA request to get the info.
    The answer to 1984 is 1776.
