Hello Ms. Roddy,
Yes, you can print the NATF-86 form or order military service records online. You may request all related records of the soldier in comments section. However, if you would like to visit the National Archives in Washington D.C. you can review and copy the same records in person. Photos of records without flash are permitted for free.
As a note, that the M233 microfilm is a register that lets you know that records may exist. RG94 in Washington D.C. is the location of the original US Army records 1798-1912.
I hope this information is useful. Best of luck with your research.
