    United States Army Morning Reports 1912-1939

    US Army and Army Air Force Morning Reports are daily details of a military unit’s status. The report may contain details of a unit’s supply and personnel strength, transfers, injuries, casualties or other change in condition status.

    “Morning Reports, 1912-1939” is the 1,748 microfilm 35mm reels that contain the unit reports for the years 1912-1939. They are organized by the NARA box and film reel number. They then have the NARA unit range that is contained within that reel based on the NARA film manifest.

    “Index Reels” contain a set of 119 microfilm 16mm reels with a summary of information on a punch card noting dates and units relating to the morning reports microfilm for all years 1912-1946.

    “Microfilm Targets” correspond to the Morning Reports, 1912-1939 reels. These are the images that contain no unit information but rather reel level microfilm target information.

    The WWI years may only report the last name and only a few details.
    The WWII years may contain full name, service number and more information regarding the unit’s status. Morning Reports microfilm years 1940-1946 are not part of this title at this time and will be added at a future date as we acquire and digitize those film reels.

    The Morning Reports have been used by many agencies and individuals as an alternative to the lost records that were destroyed in the 1973 fire in St. Louis.
