Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Thank you
You can do that here
http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/
The National Archives will send him a copy if he signs the request form. Fax it in for fastest response...they typically take a week or two to arrive after you send the fax in
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
