Re: PAPERWORK ON KILLED GRANDFATHER
The answer(s) is yes & no... There is no death certificate as currently published and maintained in state records; however, the Army maintains records called Individual Deceased Personnel Files (IDPF) and they contain much of the same info. You can request these by writing to:
US Total Army Personnel Command
Provide as much of the following as you have:
Full Name of Vet
Date of Death
Your relationship to Vet
Be prepared to wait... it takes several months. Also, some of these records can be quite graphic... just so you know.
