The Korean War research process is the same as for World War I and World War II. The main records a researcher needs are in the same locations and the records are very similar. When you began researching, did you get a letter from St. Louis telling you all the records burned? Are you trying to sort out a family story or locate additional records? This section will provide some tips and resources to help you get started. If you would like more in-depth information, please check out my books, Stories from the World War II Battlefield Volumes 1 and 2. These volumes help researchers locate information across all branches of the military during World War I, World War II, and Korea.
Would you like to work with a researcher to help you obtain all available records at NPRC on your soldier (especially if the OMPF burned?) Contact us for details and get started on a research project.
