The archives contain your OMPF (official military personnel file)

They do not contain pay records...they are kept by the major command ((the wing for the AF)

But after more than 40 years it is not likely the wing would have copies of the records

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.
