It was rumored that the National Military Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, Mo. was planning to automate its stored military records and would discard all the hard copies of those documents unless service members requested them. The Fleet Reserve Association has reported that a member of its editorial team called NMPRC about the rumor and was told that it was false. The NMPRC spokesman said that the facility does not plan to automate the files in the near future and they will not toss out any records.
