The next of kin of veterans are authorized by law to obtain copies of the official military personnel file (OMPF) of their father or mother. These records will be needed to determine whether the parent was stationed at Camp Lejeune.
If they were stationed there, the records will also reflect when the veteran arrived at the military base and when they were transferred or discharged out.
If the veteran was discharged from the military less than 62 years ago, there is no charge by the federal government to next of kin for basic personnel and medical records. If they were discharged more than 62 years ago, the records are considered to be archival, and a fee will apply. A routine OMPF of five pages or less will cost $25. Six pages or more will cost $70.
