Requests for the issuance or replacement of military service medals, decorations and awards should be directed to the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served.

However, for cases involving Air Force and Army personnel (click here for exceptions), the NPRC will verify the awards to which a veteran is entitled and forward the request along with the records verification to the appropriate service department for issuance of the medals.

The Army could not readily identify the population of Army military payroll accounts given its existing procedures and systems.

The Army and DFAS-IN did not have an effective, repeatable process for identifying the population of active duty payroll records.

At the end of September 2011, 6 months after receiving GAO’s 250 statistical sample items, the Army and DFAS-IN were able to provide complete documentation for 2 of GAO’s sample items and provided partial documentation for 3 items, but provided no documentation for 245 of GAO’s 250 sample items.
