Requests for Military Mailing Addresses:
Responsibility for military personnel records falls within the jurisdiction of the military departments, not the Office of the
Secretary of Defense. Therefore, requests for military addresses should be sent to the respective service of the individual
whose address is being sought. There is no comprehensive source for e-mail addresses. Even if there were, military regulations
and the Privacy Act of 1974 do not permit the military departments to provide home addresses or telephone numbers of service
personnel. Moreover, regulations do not permit random dissemination of listings of names and addresses of service personnel.
These regulations have been established to protect individual service men and women from commercial exploitation, and to
respect their right of privacy. Because of the large volume of requests that each service locator receives, please allow four
weeks processing time for written requests.
The following information is needed for all requests for all locator services:
Give as much identifying information as possible about the person you wish to locate such as full name, rank, last duty
assignment/last known military address, service number, and Social Security number.
The locator service is free to immediate family members and government officials. Other family members, civilian friends,
businesses and others must pay $3.50. The check or money order must be made out to the U.S. Treasury. It is not refundable.
