    My grandfather was WW1vet. Records were destroyed in 73 fire in st. Louis.


      my grandfather was born in 1881, served in the calvary, served in WW1 in argonne muesse offensive and philliphines. his headdstone says he was a Sgt. Major., but the copies we recieved after the St. louis fire says he was a private. i have some original papers from early 1900's, for reenlistment., but unable to verify his status, nor where he fought at what times. spent hours online researching with dead ends.

         any help that does not involve travel would be appreciated.
