GET YOUR RECORDS!!!

There is a lot of information needed below. If you need to send some information now and some later, that is fine. Just send the form that applies below with the partial information, and send it again later with the remaining information needed. Also, if you do not have your Service Record Book, I suggest you get it. It contains most all the answers to the below questions. Go to the Company Office and on the center column click on, "Get Your Records". To get your records coming right now, CLICK HERE to pop-up a window with instructions.
HOTEL ONLY FORM

There are three forms below. The top form, titled, "Hotel 2/1 1968 Registration Form, Hotel Only" is just for the actual time you served in Hotel Company. Other in-country time and the rest of your active duty time will be located in the second form. I suggest you read all three forms before you start any of them. It will make the process easier. There are two issues with the forms you need to know about. The first is, you can't save them, once you start you must finish them by clicking the submit button when you have completed it. The Hotel form takes about 90 minutes minutes to complete depending on how much you write. I suggest you write question 4 in a word processor and have it completed before you start on the form. That way you can just copy and paste it.

NOTE: You do NOT have to fill out all 3 of these at once. just fill out one form, then hit submit.
