 Aviation Requests (Flyovers, Static Displays, Air Shows)
How do I obtain a military aircraft for a civilian air show or community event? 
Requests for 301st Fighter Wing F-16 aircraft: 
Anyone requesting support for 301st FW F-16 participation in any event must first visit: 
http://www.airshows.pa.hq.af.mil/ 
for information, requesting procedures and DD Form 2535 - Request for Military Aerial Support. 
 
The 301st FW requires a minimum of 30 days to consider a request. Requestors are responsible for obtaining approval from Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs office (using the information above) prior to contacting us. 

Please email: 301fw.pa@us.af.mil 
with a description of the event, the time expecting the flyover (or window of opportunity), and contact information. PA can only escalate requests which have been made SAF/PA process.

 Approval by SAF/PA does not commit the 301st FW to any event. 

Requests for aircraft other than the 301st FW's F-16: 
To request an aircraft from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps or U.S. Army, please contact the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth PA office at (817) 782-7815. Approval for any event must be coordinated through the respective branch of service headquarters via DD Form 2535. 

**It is recommended that the requestor fax a copy of the completed DD Form 2535 to all branches of service in the event that one of the military components at NAS JRB can not accommodate. The DD Form 2535 allows for the requestor to locate any other unit on another installation to provide a military aircraft for your event. 
 Base Facilities
What facilities or services does Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth provide for military members and their families?
The base has numerous services and facilities for military members and their families. Visit their site at: https://cnrse.cnic.navy.mil/Installations/NAS-JRB-Fort-Worth/
 Care Packages for Troops
My organization has collected a lot of items to send overseas to our troops. We heard that you can have them shipped via the military, how do we do that? 
First, let us say that we greatly appreciate your support for our troops. 

While donations of food and gifts for delivery overseas can no longer be accepted by us for transportation to the troops, interested Americans might consider contributing instead to military relief societies.     

DoD has ways for Americans to show support for their servicemembers deployed overseas. The initiatives, made necessary by a moratorium on mail addressed to "Any Servicemember," provide alternatives to traditional letter-writing campaigns. DoD suggests that Americans support troops by instead supporting the communities in which they live. 

One way to show support is by doing a good deed on behalf of servicemembers. Visit a Veterans Affairs hospital or nursing home, or volunteer in the local community to help make up for servicemembers who normally would volunteer but are now deployed or otherwise too busy with their duties. Many servicemembers volunteer to coach children's teams, feed the homeless, and aid their communities in a variety of other ways. Interested Americans can show their support and honor their military by volunteering in their local communities. 

Although many towns do not have a military base nearby, military recruiters are stationed nearly everywhere. Local governments and chambers of commerce are encouraged to reach out to these local members of the military, invite them to speak at community events, and encourage members of the community to learn more about America's military. 

Members of the community who know military families might want to offer their support by reaching out to those families while their loved ones are deployed. 

Servicemembers value and appreciate expressions of support from the American people, and these and other mail programs are a significant boost to morale. However, recent mail-related attacks have resulted in additional precautions and the safety of servicemembers is paramount. The increased manpower required to ensure safe mail handling coupled with the increased volume of mail that letter-writing campaigns generate could exceed capabilities, and therefore cannot be supported at this time. 

Normal mail delivery addressed by name to individual servicemembers will continue uninterrupted. Please note that for security purposes, we can not release the names and addresses of our members currently serving overseas.

 Medical Records
I was born at the hospital at Carswell Air Force Base. How do I get my medical records? 
The individual military departments do not maintain files or records pertaining to individuals no longer on active duty. When an individual is separated from military service (because of retirement, discharge from active duty, or death) his/her Field Personnel File (containing all military and health records) is forwarded for storage to the National Personnel Records Center (Military), 9700 Page Blvd, St. Louis, MO  63172. The Records Center is under the jurisdiction of the National Archives and Records Administration of the U.S. government. Their web site is http://www.archives.gov/research_room/obtain_copies/veterans_service_records.html. 
 Military Records
How can I obtain military records? 
The individual military departments DO NOT maintain files or records pertaining to individuals no longer on active duty. When an individual is separated from military service (because of retirement, discharge from active duty, or death) his/her Field Personnel File (containing all military and health records) is forwarded for storage to the National Personnel Records Center (Military), 9700 Page Blvd, St. Louis, MO  63172. The Records Center is under the jurisdiction of the National Archives and Records Administration of the U.S. government.
Website: https://www.archives.gov/research
     
 An individual's complete service record is available to the former service member or, if deceased, to his/her next of kin (parents, spouse, or children). Limited information (such as dates of service, awards, and training) is available to anyone. Not available to the general public is information which would invade an individual's privacy, such as medical records, social security number, or present address. 

The St. Louis Center receives many thousands of requests for service records each week, so please be aware that there may be a lengthy delay. The St. Louis Center will process requests with greater speed and accuracy if the requester uses a Standard Form 180, "Request Pertaining to Military Records." The form is available as a Portable Document File. If you do not have the reader software, it is available free of charge from the company which produces it, Adobe. 

Also, the National Personnel Records Center is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files. 

Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the Standard Form 180 that can be downloaded from the online website. 

The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records center's mailroom processing time. Also, because the requester will
be asked to supply all information essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has to ask veterans for additional information will be minimized. 

Veterans and next of kin may access this application at https://vetrecs.archives.gov/VeteranRequest/home.html
If you are having trouble downloading the form, you may request one from our office by submitting a question on this system. If you want us to send you the form, please include your name and postal address. 

Standard Form 180, which contains instructions, is also available from most veterans organizations or by writing to the National Personnel Records Center. If requesting the records of a relative, a requester should mention the relationship to the former member (brother, uncle, or other). There is no charge for this service to former service members or their next of kin. For others, a nominal fee is charged for research and reproduction costs. (In this regard, files at the Records Center are maintained as historical records only and are not updated to reflect current data on the former service member.) 


Notes: 
1) Contrary to published accounts, the department has not published a "booklet on military records," but we hope the above information will be useful. 
2) Of incidental interest for individuals compiling family histories: National Archives and Records Administration, 700 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Washington, DC  20408, (phone: (202) 501-5400) provides assistance to those interested in genealogy. NARA normally charges a nominal fee for research and reproduction costs.
