NARA published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on June 25, 2008 (73 FR 36128). Two comments were received. One comment requested that the veteran or requestor should be afforded the opportunity to request their entire record on the form so they don’t have to request it more than once. Another comment requested replacing ‘‘service’’ with ‘‘component’’ in several areas of the form; changing ‘‘VA Loan’’ to ‘‘VA Loan Programs’’; and requesting all documents in the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). Both comments were accepted and the changes were made to the SF 180. NARA has submitted the described VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:11 Sep 19, 2008 Jkt 214001 information collection to OMB for approval.

In this notice, NARA is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Request Pertaining to Military Records. OMB number: 3095–0029. Agency form number: SF 180. Type of review: Regular. Affected public: Veterans, their authorized representatives, state and local governments, and businesses. Estimated number of respondents: 1,028,769.

In accordance with rules issued by the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS, U.S. Coast Guard), the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) administers military service records of veterans after discharge, retirement, and death. When veterans and other authorized individuals request information from or copies of documents in military service records, they must provide in forms or in letters certain information about the veteran and the nature of the request. Federal agencies, military departments, veterans, veterans’ organizations, and the general public use Standard Forms (SF) 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records, in order to obtain information from military service records stored at NPRC. Veterans and next-of-kin of deceased veterans can also use eVetRecs (http://www.archives.gov/ research_room/vetrecs/) to order copies.
