Army Morning Reports
An Army Morning Report provided the higher command with an essential overview of all personnel activity within the company on a given day. It contains the following details:
- The company’s exact location
- Names of personnel transferred to another company
- Names of personnel wounded or killed in action—in the case of transfer to a hospital, the report gives the particular hospital unit.
- The strength of the company—that is, the number of active soldiers that day
- An overview of the rations in the company’s inventory
- Sometimes, a brief record of events about the company’s activities that day—e.g., moving or fighting
Searching Morning Reports is a labor-intensive process. They are stored on microfilm and require patient, careful searching through reels of negatives. Find some examples on the pictures below.
Please be aware that in some cases the reels are very hard to read. Our team will make sure to offer you the highest quality images as possible.
The price for morning reports start with a $100 retainer fee.
