Change to Medal Requests for Veterans Discharged or Retired after Oct. 1, 2002

PHILADELPHIA -- Veterans requesting medals who were separated, discharged or retired after Oct. 1, 2002, should submit their request to the U.S. Army Human Resources Command in St. Louis (HRC-STL), not the National Personnel Records Center.

The address is: U.S. Army Human Resources Command - St. Louis; Attn: AHRC-CC-B; 1 Reserve Way; St. Louis, Missouri; 63132-5200.

This notice applies to all electronic official military personnel files for active Army and Reserve component officers and enlisted members, and National Guard officers, but excludes the National Guard enlisted and Reserve member files, which are in paper format.

The U.S. Army Human Resources Command formally activated on Oct. 2, 2003, combining the U.S. Total Army Personnel Command and the U.S. Army Reserve Personnel Command.

Since Oct. 1, 2002, all official military personnel files for active Army and Reserve component officers and enlisted members, and National Guard officers have been electronically stored at HRC-STL, and requests for any information pertaining to these records should be directed to HRC-STL.

The customer service number at HRC-STL is 314-592-0123 or toll-free 1-800-318-5298. Their Web site is: https://www.hrc.army.mil.
