Subject: [ROOTS-L] Re: missing VA files

My niece was looking for her dad's discharge certificate and the VA offices
could not help her as she did not know his army serial number. She made
numerous calls to all the VA Offices. Finally one day a friend of the man at
the local office reminded him that the old records were made in duplicate or
triplicate and the copies were stored in boxes at the local office. That is
where they found a copy of her dad's discharge certificate. No one knows
what happened to the original. Hope this will be of help to anyone looking
for old records.
