      Personnel Files

      medical

      service.

        I requested copies of my 1944-46 service and
        was notified that all WWII service records from
        J-Z at St Louis were destroyed in a warehouse fire -
        including mine. Hopefully they have been resurrected
        (I sent copies of mine and received "thanks").
