Angela, superb idea! My husband's record file was lost in transit after the fire. But because he had a set of promotion orders with serial numbers he was able to retrieve other documents from other files that listed his name. The Records Center is now rebuilding his file from those other documents. Thanks for getting the word out. American and personnel history is vital.
