  1. I am a child who was born at George AFB in 1984. My parents met in the Navy. My mother left the service when my older sister was born, and went to live in Victorville with my aunt and uncle who were stationed at George. My dad visited sometimes on leave. My mother ended up pregnant with me, and lived in Victorville for the entire pregnancy, going to the base hospital for all her checkups since it was 14 minutes away. After I was born the family moved and so I went to other base hospitals as a child for checkups, immunizations, etc. In 1992 I was briefly hospitalized at one base for a small incident. …

    When I put in the request with the NPRC it took them several months to complete. They took longer than the time they were supposed to spend retrieving the records.

    When the envelope arrived in the mail I immediately looked through the few sheets that were sent to me and was very frustrated – the only things sent were records pertaining to that incident in 1992 that I mentioned. There was absolutely nothing sent to me from before then.

    I called the phone number that was on the letter included, and spoke with someone who told me that “what we sent you is everything that is in your file”. When I asked her why the first 8 years of records were missing, she replied with “I cannot say that your records are missing or they don’t exist, all that I can tell you is that we sent you everything that we have on hand under your file”. And that was the end of that.

    Considering I went to a hospital on another base after George, and those records are ALSO missing, it very strongly feels like there is something purposely being kept from me.
