A Privacy Act (PA) Request is one in which a United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident seeks records on herself/himself that are contained in a file retrievable by the individual's name or personal identifier. A PA request must be submitted in writing via postal mail or fax.
DoD PA systems of records are decentralized. Accordingly, if you know which DoD Component maintains the records, submit your request directly to them. If you're unsure where the record is maintained, please review the list below to identify an appropriate office.
