Where Can You Find Copies of Military Deployment Orders?
Individuals can request military deployment records from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. Military records contain information on deployments, duty stations, training, qualifications and performance. Other information includes awards and medals, disciplinary actions and other administrative data. NARA is the governmental body that manages, preserves and stores records that are judged to have continuing value, including all military personnel records. These amount to approximately 2 to 5 percent of the records generated by the U.S. government in a year.
