Thanks for the correction.I'll wait a week and get everyone's suggestions before I revise the FAQ.I already got a great suggestion from a fellow board member to have family member's check for dog tags also.I didn't even think of that one--- too obvious, I guess!!!
I didn't get into alot of detail on the FAQ regarding medals, devices, etc. I wanted to keep it simple, but I found that it continued to get away from me the more I read it over.I suppose I could have written a book on the subject (a very small book, though).
The NOK rule applies to on-line requests for information and requests for medical records from the NPRC.Most other records, such as IDPF files, are available under the Freedom of Information Act.Anything at the National Archives is, I assume, public information.
