Mrs. Stackhouse, I work for the DAV and I have gotten requests for military records that were destroyed.

The NPRC can reconstruct your husbands records for you, you have to make a request for his military records by sending a letter and make sure your signature is on it.

You can download a Standard form 180 from their website, or send the request by mail to;

Good luck it usually takes anywhere from 30 days to 3 months for a reply.
