    Title: Request Pertaining to Military Records.
    OMB number: 3095-0029.
    Agency form number: SF 180.
    Type of review: Regular.
    Affected public: Veterans, their authorized representatives, state 
and local governments, and businesses.
    Estimated number of respondents: 1,028,769.
    Estimated time per response: 5 minutes.
    Frequency of response: On occasion (when respondent wishes to

    Estimated total annual burden hours: 85,731 hours.
    Abstract: The authority for this information collection is 
contained in 36 CFR 1233.18. In accordance with rules issued by the 
Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS, 
US Coast Guard), the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) of the 
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) administers 
military service records of veterans after discharge, retirement, and 
death. When veterans and other authorized individuals request 
information from or copies of documents in military service records, 
they must provide in forms or in letters certain information about the 
veteran and the nature of the request. Federal agencies, military 
departments, veterans, veterans' organizations, and the general public 
use Standard Forms (SF) 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records, in 
order to obtain information from military service records stored at 
NPRC. Veterans and next-of-kin of deceased veterans can also use 
eVetRecs (http://www.archives.gov/research_room/vetrecs/) to order
