Questiona and Answers FAQ

Locating Military Personnel - Be Your Own Detective
 
Military Locator   Search either by accessing free public records online (when available) or by requesting a copy from the agency holding it, usually for a small fee. Consult Public Records

Order a People Search. Experienced database search specialists will immediately go to work for you, to quickly return real, meaningful results. See our Sample Report

Locating someone who is presently serving or was once connected to the military can present entirely different search problems and possibilities from other types of locates because the several service branches function independently of each other within the Department of Defense.

To locate a member who is retired or an individual who is on active duty, first determine which service branch will most likely have the information you need.  Each branch has a locator service that will either forward a letter for you or provide you with the member's current assignment station, possibly even a work phone number, home address, and home phone number. To forward a letter, address it and enclose it in another envelope addressed to the base locator. Provide the following information regarding the individual you wish to locate:
  • Full name & DOB (an estimate will do)
  • Rank (officer or enlisted?)
  • Sex
  • SSN
  • Last known address
  • Date entered service
