Depending on the war or campaign of interest, the information we have on a specific unit varies greatly. The USAHEC is not specifically a repository for official unit records, rosters, or morning reports. Officially, these types of records are held by the National Archives and Records Administration.

For unit operational records prior to 1939, contact:
Military Reference Branch
National Archives
Washington, DC 20408
Phone: (202) 501-5430.

For unit operational records since 1939, contact:
Modern Military Records, National Archives
8601 Adelphi Road (Room 2400)
College Park, MD 20740

The USAHEC does have many such items in its inventory, however. To begin researching a particular unit in the USAHEC collections, visit the online reference bibliographies.
