Standard Form 180 (SF-180, the Request Pertaining to Military Records) is a one-page authorization form (plus 2 pages of instructions) of the U.S. military. The form may be filled out by a veteran of the U.S. military or their surviving next-of-kin to view and/or release a person's military record.
The SF 180 may also be used to request a one-time replacement of Medals earned in service.
You can obtain your military records form the National Personnel Records Center or the military if you were discharged recently. You may also find private researchers that will obtain your record for a fee. The National Archives has a list of independent researchers who will undertake a personal search for you.
