Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Privacy Act, a family member may now request an Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF/293 File) from the Department of the Army. Files are available for the following categories:

  1. World War II - all branches (Army, Army Air Corps, Navy and Marine Corps)

  2. Korean War - Army only

  3. Vietnam War - Army only

As a minimum, your request should contain the deceased person’s full name, date of birth, date of death, service number, branch of service and whether he/she was a World War II, Korean War or Vietnam War casualty.

The Army does not have copies of World War I files. Those files, which also are known as "Cemeterial Files," have been turned over to the National Archives. Archives also has files for all branches (Army, Army Air, Navy and Marine) and "Civilians with the Forces" contained in Stack 11W, available for reading in a designated reading room. Archives also has information related to Civil War military service.

For information regarding burial at sea, contact Navy Mortuary Affairs, P.O. Box 886999, Great Lakes, IL 60088. There may be costs incurred for which the requester may be responsible.

Caution: Files may contain stark reality of the horrors of war and death. They are mortuary and medical records and may be very painful to read.
