A sample follows of the letter you should send along with a copy of the page from your service record that indicates the EM (Thanks to Roy Strolin):

To:  National Personnel Command
      Records Center

I served aboard the USS Knox (DE/FF 1052) during “Operation Eagle Pull” and “Operation Frequent Wind” while in the South China Sea for the months of March, April, and May of 1975.  I have attached a copy of those entries from my service record. 

I understand that under the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 2003 – Section 542 that I have the option to convert the Armed Services Expeditionary Medal for Operation Frequent Wind to a Vietnam Service Medal.  I elect to do the conversion at this time.

I would also like to have my DD-214 updated to reflect all the medals I am entitled to and receive a copy of my DD-215. 

Any assistance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your help.
