REPORTS AND HISTORIES
The National Archives has millions of military records from W.W.I, W.W.II, Korea, Vietnam and every conflict in between!
Military research is our specialty. Lyon Research can locate specific unit military records, morning reports, daily journals, after action reports, official histories, and orders, awards and promotions. All of these documents and more are located at the National Archives. If you want copies of photographs from your unit or battle maps, we can copy those as well. We can copy entire records for outfits of any size, from a platoon to an army, an aircraft carrier to an LST. If you want an original copy of your outfit's "out of print" Unit History, chances are we can locate one.
If you have been trying to locate a long lost friend from your days in the service, Lyon Research can help. We can locate your long lost buddies using the unit records in National Archives, which include personnel information, service numbers, and sometimes the hometowns of veterans. Thes military records will have service numbers of vets. With their service number, we may be able to locate them.
Using this information, we can often locate veterans. Even if we have a full name, but no service number, we may still be able to find them.
MEDALS / AWARDS
Did you earn a Bronze Star and never receive it, or were you nominated but never heard if you were awarded it? We may be able to get you that medal. The first step is to get a copy of your personnel record (see the link above). If there is no record of it there, but you have an idea of the date, we can look in your units military records to see if action was taken on it. Let us know-- we will be glad to help.
