"I've ordered military records from Centralne Archiwum Wojskowe, Wojskowe Biuro Historyczne, ul. Pontonierów 2A, 00-910 WARSZAWA. I had to mail the request to them, but then it was quite easy to obtain the records. There is a form to fill out, I emailed them in, and they promptly replied in Polish with the form, which I then filled out and returned via regular mail. I don't recall but I think the processing time with them was about 1 month, and the materials returned were quite useful." -Martin Wahlen 11/20/2022
