Aardvark Research Group

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), in St. Louis, is the primary repository for the military personnel files of veterans of ALL branches of the military who served between 1900 and the present. It is a branch of the United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

As a local company, Aardvark Research has the ability to order records in-person at the National Archives, and provide certified copies of original DD214′s on an expedited basis. Whereas requests processed through NARA and the NPRC can take weeks to months, we typically can access the military personnel file and deliver Certified Copies of requested documents within 1-5 days. We do this by ordering the record in-person at the NARA Research Room, copying the document you have requested, and then delivering the Certified Copies to you either in an email, or as mailed hard-copies, or both.

We are the ONLY online Military Research Company based in St. Louis. Our proximity to the NPRC, and our familiarity with the process and chain-of-command, gives us unrivaled access to the records, and the ability to deliver the records you need as quickly as possible.

If you need A DD214 or any other documents from your military personnel file, we can get them for you faster, and less expensively than anyone.

WE ARE NOT EMPLOYED BY OR ENDORSED BY THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES OR THE NATIONAL PERSONNEL RECORDS CENTER. WE ARE PRIVATE RESEARCHERS WHO HAVE BEEN APPROVED TO HANDLE RECORDS IN THE NARA AND NPRC RESEARCH ROOMS.

    "I just got home this past weekend after being out for a week and in my mailbox was your envelope! I was very excited to see it and open it. The DD214/discharge certificate was exactly what I had spent countless hours trying to find on my own but had been unsuccessful. Susan I cannot thank you enough for tracking down my father’s military service records. Having been told by the VA that any records pertaining to his years of service “were destroyed in a fire” was very discouraging. I appreciate your knowing how to navigate the system and succeed where I could not.”
