Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
If you’re trying to find more information about their service you may want to request their Official Military Personnel Files from the National Personnel Records Center. Note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NPRC has been closed and only completing emergency requests. As of March 29, 2021, the NPRC increased its on-site staffing to 25 percent of the workforce. They are continuing to increase their on-site staffing and are servicing requests associated with medical treatments, burials, and homeless veterans seeking admittance to a homeless shelter. For that reason you want to refrain from submitting non-emergency requests until they return to pre-COVID staffing levels. You can check archives.gov/veteranshttps://www.archives.gov/veteransfor updates to the NPRC operating hours and status. We apologize for any inconvenience.
In the meantime, I would suggest doing some research on Ancestry and Family Search. NARA has partnered with these groups to help digitize and make available quite a few of the military records. Family Search does not require a subscription and can be accessed with a free account. Ancestry does require a subscription, but many public libraries offer free access with your library card.
We hope this information is helpful.
