The Service Records series combines both official service record files from the Adjutant General's Office and alphabetical files created by other agencies that contain records related to an individual's service in a military unit. The information contained in an individual's file varies considerably. Some files contain only small strips of paper with one or two brief sentences while others contain several lengthy, detailed records.
