Dear Ms. Bodenburg,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) does not provide services to locate living individuals. The records in the custody of NARA were typically transferred from other Federal agencies at least 20-30 years after they were created and used. Therefore, NARA records are not usually helpful in providing current information about individuals.
We searched online and located the websites of the 11th Airborne Division Association and the American Airborne Association that may assist you in locating members of his unit during the late 1950s. We also suggest reviewing the resources listed on NARA’s Locating Veterans and Service Members web page.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
