how to obtain PERSONNEL ROSTERS

The 15th Medical BN Association now has available personnel rosters requested from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis, MO for 1965-1970. These rosters were generally prepared only for the months of April and October of each year during the Vietnam War, except during 1965 and 1966, when they were prepared during some additional months as well. Enlisted Personnel Rosters for 1968 are available only for 10/68. Officer rosters are available for 07/65, 08/65, 10/65, 01/66, 07/66, 07/67, 09/67, 04/69 and 10/70

Rosters must be requested and will be sent by e-mail only, unless special arrangements are made by e-mail.

To request rosters for your time in Vietnam, send an e-mail to historian@15thmedbnassociation.org . Enter “15th Med BN Roster Request” on the Subject line. In the message section, enter your full name, unit(s) and dates. See example below:

(Include any questions or comments that you have).

Upon receipt of your e-mail request, you will be contacted by e-mail regarding what rosters are available.

To receive these rosters, you must be a Life Member of the 15th Medical BN Assn. and your name and current contact information must be on the Unit Member Search List (UMSL). Anyone who served with the 15th Medical BN for at least 30 days may become a Life Member simply by completing a short application on-line - there are no fees or dues. If you are not a Life Member, you will be sent instructions on becoming one.

If you are not a Life Member, but are a family member of a deceased 15th Medical Battalion Veteran who served in Vietnam (either KIA or Died After Service), we will do our best to find rosters with the name of your family member and e-mail them to you. In the case of KIA's, we have all the information needed and all you need do is e-mail us the name of your family member. In the case of family members who died after service in Vietnam, please include as much information as you can, including the name, the unit of assignment, dates of tour, and date of death in your request e-mail.

If you do not have access to a computer, the Internet, or e-mail, and do not have a friend or relative with a computer who may assist you, we suggest contacting your local County Veterans Service Office (check your local telephone book under County Office listings), your local public library, or possibly even your local VFW or American Legion Post for assistance.

If you absolutely cannot get assistance and need to have paper photocopies made and mailed to you via U. S. Postal Service, please call 402-457-9807, and arrangements will be made to send them to you for a charge to cover the cost of copying, postage, and handling.

Please be aware these rosters were printed from microfilm, and range from highly legible to nearly illegible. In most cases, enlarging areas of them on your computer, or using a magnifying glass may help.

There will be no charge to e-mail the rosters to you, but since the 15th Medical Battalion Association does not charge any membership fees or dues, any donations are welcome. You may make a donation by using a PayPal account, credit card, or debit card by clicking the button below.
