Do you have any additional information regarding individual you are seeking such as a name, date of birth, place of birth, did he serve in world war 1 or world war 2? Looking for unit information or personnel information?
Yes, I know my father’s service number and know that he served in the Central Pacific Theater. He received 2 Bronze Stars but I don’t know the circumstances. I’d also like to know what islands he fought on. I know he was on Saipan, Christmas Island, and possibly Okinawa.
All I know about my granddad is that he was a WWI veteran.
Their records were possibly destroyed in the St. Louis fire.

Dear Ms. Van Keuren,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
It depends when your relatives served in the military. Please see NARA’s web page at https://www.archives.gov/research/military/veterans for the different time periods and how/where to send your requests. If you are unsure of names and dates, we suggest that you review the bog posting titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
