Try contacting the County Veterans office or County office nd or County Recorder Office. He may have filled his discharge papers with county when he came back back from the war.
I called my cousin, she did not think she had papers, but it turned out she did! I have his early 1946 discharge. He was in the 3910 Sig SV Corp, he was on Tinian for about 7 months in 1945.

Dear Mr. Krieger,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We are pleased that you were able to locate the discharge papers. Should you be interested in doing further research, we suggest contacting the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. Although the Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) was either damaged or destroyed in the 1973 fire, the Army and Air Force provided the National Archives with auxiliary records to assist in rebuilding records. Please submit a SF-180 to the NPRC, 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138.
We searched the Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca. 1938 - 1946 on Access to Archival Databases (AAD) and located information about five persons with the name Leo Kreiger, one of which might be your uncle. Be aware that this series does not contain records of all World War II Army enlistees.
We also searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1905-1981 (Record Group 407) and located brief histories of the 3910th Signal Service Company for 1945 and 1946 in file SGCO-3910-0.1 [Box 18445]. The histories do not include mentions of specific enlisted personnel. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, sometimes veterans filed their papers with the county recorder’s office.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thanks Jason. Yes, one of those records does match him. I do however, as I said, have his discharge papers, I've already talked to the VA, waiting to hear back.
