How to Access or Request Your Official Military Personnel File Documents

Accessing or Requesting Your Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) Documents

There are two ways to obtain copies of specific document(s) or your entire OMPF:

  1. Accessing your OMPF electronically.
  2. Submitting a request to the appropriate Location of Military Personnel Records.

You may be able to access your OMPF electronically at no charge. Electronic access is an easy, fast, 24/7 way to view your OMPF, and it gives you the flexibility to print specific document(s) or download your entire OMPF.


To electronically access your OMPF, you must have a Common Access Card (CAC), Army Knowledge Online (AKO) account or Department of Defense Self-Service Logon (DS Logon) account. Additionally, you must have served in the U.S. Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard after April 1, 1996. Please refer to the “Location of Military Personnel Records” section of this article to determine your options for electronically accessing your OMPF.

If you are a Veteran or Retiree that separated from the U.S. Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard before April 1, 1996, you must submit a request for your records. Please refer to the “Location of Military Personnel Records” section in this article.
