Response time for the National Personnel Records Centers averages 6-12 weeks. If the NPRC must reconstruct your records ( for those involved in the 1973 fire, it may take considerably longer). We cannot guarantee a delivery date. Medical Records from the Department of Veterans Affairs may take up to a year to obtain.
