Military records are normally found at the provincial archives of the province which includes the birth comune, in this case, Palermo. You can use this template:


06 giugno 2011 [giugno is June; month names in italian are written lower case]

[your name]
[your address]

STATI UNITI D'AMERICA - USA


Archivio di Stato di Palermo
Corso Vittorio Emanuele 31
90133 Palermo
ITALY

Egregi Signori,

Mi chiamo [your name here], ed abito negli Stati Uniti all'indirizzo sopradetto.

Vi scrivo affinché mi aiutiate a reperire:

* FOGLIO DI CONGEDO ILLIMITATO
* FOGLIO MATRICOLARE
* REGISTRO DI LEVA

per il mio trisavolo:

* [gggf's name, last name first, all caps] nato nel Comune di Misilmeri, in data [date of birth or 'circa 1884'], paternità [his father's given name if you know it else 'incerto'], maternità [mother's full maiden name if you know it "SMITH JANE" else 'incerto']

Vi prego di farmi sapere quanto dovuto per il servizio e per i costi di spedizione.

Distinti saluti,

[your signature]




Date of birth should be written as shown above; day number, month spelled out in italian, year.

State archives usually charge a small fee to cover the cost of copying and postage. This typically amounts to less then €5. They will send you a bill, sometimes by email (if you provide an address, of course). Some state archives will mail the bill and the documents the same day; others will send a bill and wait for payment before mailing the docs.
