Ask a Genealogist: Korean War Veteran records from New Hampshire

 Permanent link
 

Question:

My late uncle was a New Hampshire U.S. Army veteran during the Korean War.  He died in 1985, and has no children.  I understand the state may have records, as the Personnel Records were destroyed in a fire in the 1970's.

Answer:

In 1973 the facility in St. Louis, Missouri burned which destroyed the personnel files of the Army, including the Korean War era.  If you contact the Adjutant General's Office in New Hampshire you should be able to obtain his discharge paper.  Explain that you are one of his only living relatives, you may need to produce a copy of his death record.  The following link should assist you in getting the documents you are searching for - http://www.nh.gov/nhveterans/how/discharge.htm
