Burial case files from 1915-1976 are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis, ATTN: RL-SL, P.O. Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002.

You may also try requesting your great uncle’s Official Military Personnel File by submitting a SF180 to the National Archives in St. Louis. Please submit the completed form either by email to email@example.com or by U.S. mail. You also may use this email address for your IDPF request.
Another collection is the Initial Burial Plats for WWI American Soldiers, 1920-1920. This collection contains maps and other documents relating to the battlefield grave sites of WWI. That collection is part of the Caratographic Division at the National Archives in College Park.
