    Hi all,
    I am trying to find information about the information collected from allied POW's in 1945. Specifically I am looking for information concerning a soldier in my fathers unit. He was either a part of the Death March through Germany or returned through Odessa. In either case since he is not a relative the only information that I can get is through the AAD on the NARA web site which of course is only basic information.
    Does anyone know what information was collected from the POW's and if there is any way to find out what this mans route was to get back to Allied lines? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Buggsy

    Actually, the Official Military Personnel Files for most WWII vets are considered Archival and available to the public. Other than paying the NARA copying fee, there should be no reason you cannot request his OMPF. Of course, there is no guaranty that the information you seek will be in his OMPF.
