Is there information on Company C, 3rd Light Artillery Battery at Fort Fisher, NC during Civil War and names of those who served?
I am looking for a copy of my father's birth and death certificates. His name is Elmar Tarlap. He served in the Army Air Corps. He was born March 8,1923 and died May 9,1997. My name is Carole Tarlap.
Was Sgt. Walter J. Fryer (ASN: 33019825) from Pennsylvania already a member of C-company 741st Tank Battalion on D-Day? According to the After Action Report of the 741st Tank Battalion all the 'swimming' Duplex Drive-tanks of C-company sank before the coast of Omaha Beach.
In my father's discharge document is listed 3 purple hearts, 2 silver stars and a bronze star. How do I get the documents containing the narrative reasons for his awards? Thank you, TC
HI Tom, I came across this book: 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team (https://www.worldcat.org/title/517th-parachute-regimental-combat-team/oclc/47840300).

I am trying to verify military records for a family member. I have found a WWI registration record and then a US Veteran's record that lists an enlistment date and a discharge date.

Hi Charles, you should consider requesting John Seeman's Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF or Burial case file).

But it is worth a try. This should…

Hi Eugene, if you can find your brother's separation papers, and I'm assuming they would be similar to those issued for WWII, those should list his awards. Also, for WWII veterans, many filed a copy of their separation papers with state or county offices upon their return. So you might want to check your brother's home state/county (Veteran's…
