I saw this recently on IAJGS – (US) National Archives Proposed Rule on Collecting
Information on Those Requesting Military Records
(IAJGS Public Records Access Alert): https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-02-22/pdf/2021-03452.pdf. Much longer article. but here are some of the relevant portions.
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a proposed notice in the Federal Register regarding continuing to collect information from people requesting military records so that they can locate, identify, and provide the requested information.
The information collected via the SF 180 and eVetRecs is vital to NARA’s National Personnel Records Center, which stores and handles these records. They need this information to locate and release information from requested records.
To read the proposal see: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-02-22/pdf/2021-03452.pdf
If you plan to submit written comments they must be received by March 24, 2021.
Send any comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection in writing to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. You can find this particular information collection by selecting ‘‘Currently under 30-day Review—Open for Public Comments’’ or by using the search function.
