|The Archives' site allows you to request a family member's service records.|
The National Archives will send you new medals to commemorate your loved one's service.
For veterans themselves and next-of-kin, medals are issued at no charge. Army and Air Force veterans can request medals online, but Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard veterans will need to mail the request to the Archives.
Even if you don't have a loved one who served, you can still research the databases.
