I am looking my father social security number. He was a WW2 veteran serving in the 191st Field Artillery Battalion and received the Purple Heart. His name was Wallace Donald Kemp.

I need my father’s social security number for another form that I need to fill out. There isn’t any social security number on his death certificate - he died Sept 11th 1981. He was a WW2 veteran serving in the 191st Field Artillery Battalion and received the Purple Heart. He was born in East Jordan, Michigan.

    Thank you for posting your question on History Hub!

    We would recommend that you request his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). In general, OMPFs for military personnel who were separated from the service between 1912 and 1999 are serviced by NARA's National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis.

    You can make a request for them online here; please provide as much information as possible. We should be able to locate the veteran’s record with other personally identifiable information (date of birth, place of birth, branch of service, etc) and the record should include the social security number. The records needed will be protected by the Privacy Act of 1972 and, as such, we will need proof of the veteran’s death in order to release those records to the next of kin.

    We hope this helps with your research!
