General Information
Description of ServiceWe assist veterans who are requesting replacement medals, service medical records, and/or military separation documents.
NOTE for those requesting Replacement Medals: National Personnel Records Center has stated that the military has made a decision to limit the issuance of veterans’ medals that have been discharged for over 62 years. According to the National Personnel Records Center, this decision is based on the belief that, for over 62 years, the military has more than met is obligation to veterans and their descendents by issuing and reissuing medals and that the military cannot provide medals in perpetuity to all future descendents of military veterans.
The form for Requests for Military Medals and Records is an SF 180. A PDF version is available at https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/standard-form-180.html
