According to wikipedia and another forum I was reading on in 1973 the U. S. Army Records Center lost due to a fire 80 percent of the personnel records for army personnel discharged from the late 40's to 1960. What is one to do when one needs a copy of the records such as when applying to VA for benefits. If you still have your discharge papers and DD-214 - Great, but if not - then what?
