The 1/92nd Field
Reports and Unit Rosters
To apply for morning reports, and rosters over the internet:http://www.nara.gov/regional/ mprmrr.html
MORNING REPORTS are created each morning, as the name implies. They are an "exception based" system, only containing information on those individuals who are not "Present and Accounted for". Among the reasons for being listed on a morning report are:
order to verify that a particular action occurred, we must be provided
with the exact unit of assignment ("Company A, 1st Battalion, 116th
Infantry Regiment"), a description of the action ("I was wounded and
sent to a hospital") and an approximate date ("June, 1944"). Without
this type of information, we may be unable to perform a search.
stores unit rosters for the Army only, for the same years as the morning
reports, 1912 to 1974. (This includes rosters of units of the Army
Air Forces prior to September 1947; however, no Air Force unit rosters
are available after that date.) Unfortunately, the rosters for the
years 1944, 1945 and 1946 were destroyed in the 1970's; no other source
for this type of information for these years exists at this center.
You may wish to contact an "Alumni Organization" in order to obtain
information concerning members of specific units.
SUBMITTING REQUESTS FOR MORNING REPORTS OR ROSTERS: Requests must be in writing and sent to the following address:
You may use a Standard Form 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records, or, write a letter to the center. Specify the information needed and the purpose of the request. In order to conduct a search of morning reports and unit rosters we need as much of the following information as possible: units or outfits; complete organizational designation (company or battery, battalion, and regiment; squadron, group, and wing, etc.); geographical location (camp, base, and country). Searching morning reports and rosters can be quite time consuming. Please limit your request to a specific event or personnel action. We are not staffed or budgeted to perform searches of organizational records for research or reunion purposes as our main responsibility is to respond to requests from or on behalf of veterans who are seeking benefits due them under various veterans laws.
SEARCH FEES: Depending on the number of searches required there may be a fee assessed. If that is the case, payment is required before the searches are undertaken. Fees are assessed for our time spent locating the records (at the rate of $13.25 per hour) and for any copies that are made (first 6 pages, $3.50; each additional page, $0.10), with a minimum charge of $8.30. A deposit of $8.30 is required before we begin the search. You will be billed for any additional costs. All remittances should be made payable to the National Personnel Records Center.
REVIEW OF RECORDS BY YOURSELF OR A DESIGNATED REPRESENTATIVE: It is also possible for our staff to make the records available to you or your designated representative for review of the morning reports/rosters at our Center. If that is not possible, you may wish to contact the history department of one of the local universities for graduate students who may be available to conduct this research.
