In accordance with rules issued by the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security (U.S. Coast Guard), NPRC also administers military service records of veterans after discharge, retirement, and death, and the medical records of these veterans, current members of the Armed Forces, and their dependents. We use the NA Form 13027, Court Order Requirements, to advise requesters of (1) the procedures they should follow to request certified copies of records for use in civil litigation or criminal actions in courts of law and (2) the information they need to provide so that we can identify the correct records. 2.

In addition, NRPC administers the medical records of dependents of service personnel. When veterans, dependents, and other authorized individuals request information from, or copies of, documents in military personnel, military medical, and dependent medical records, they must provide on forms or in letters certain information about the veteran and the nature of the request so that we may find the correct records, protect the privacy of the person in the records from unauthorized access, and reconstruct information if needed. We ask requesters who seek medical records of dependents of service personnel and hospitalization records of military personnel to complete NA Form 13042, Request for Information Needed to Locate Medical Records, so that NPRC staff can locate the desired records. Certain types of information contained in military personnel and medical records are restricted from disclosure unless the veteran provides a more specific release authorization than is normally required for other records. In such cases, we ask veterans to complete NA Form 13036, Authorization for Release of Military Medical Patient Records, to authorize release to a third party of a restricted type of information found in the desired record. A major fire at the NPRC on July 12, 1973, destroyed numerous military records. If a person’s request involves records or information from records that may have been lost in the fire, we may ask them to complete NA Form 13075, Questionnaire about Military Service, or NA Form 13055, Request for Information Needed to Reconstruct Medical Data, so that NPRC staff can search alternative sources to reconstruct the requested information.

We need to handle requests for these types of records by order due to the volume of requests we receive for them; otherwise, we would not be able to get documents to people in a timely way. The forms also allow us to collect specific information from the researcher that we need to search for the records they want. The forms are: NATF 84, National Archives Order for Copies of Land Entry Files; NATF 85, National Archives Order for Copies of Pension or Bounty Land Warrant Applications; and NATF 86, National Archives Order for Copies of Military Service Records. As a convenience, the paper forms allow researchers to provide credit card information to authorize billing and expedited mailing of the copies. Researchers can instead use Order Online!

can identify the correct records. Veterans, military dependents, and

request information from, or copies of, documents in military 
personnel, military medical, and dependent medical records. 
Genealogical researchers use the National Archives Trust Fund (NATF)
