If your facility is commonly used by the aviation industry, for the most part they understand the importance of quickly producing your records.
These records are required reading for drug- and alcohol-related traffic citations.
Unlike medical records, legal records can come directly from the pilot.
Records requested through the Centralized Support Division take much longer - you should make every effort to request the files from the clinic you received treatment.
Compensation and pension records, also called a C-file, may require special handling especially if the exam was conducted by a third-party agency. If requesting a C-file, please discuss with your records technician if you need to use an agency-specific form.
At separation or retirement, you are given your entire military medical file. For veterans discharged more than ten years ago, this may be in a large paper file. Newer veterans may have the file on CD or a downloadable link. You can ask me questions about your Service Treatment Records.
