Hi Robert,

Not sure which exact search terms you were using, but we have 3 records about this serviceman. I found all three by searching for "429820 Donald Bernard May":

I use the name search function with the branch of service and service number

Hi Robert,

There must be a problem with NameSearch in this case. For some reason these records don't show up on NameSearch, even though we do have them. I'll look into this and see if we can fix the problem.

In the meantime, you can find his records by using the Basic Search instead of NameSearch.

On the Basic Search screen, put in "429820 Donald Bernard May" (without the speech marks) into the keyword field and you'll find the three records I listed above.

Regards,
