Welcome to History Hub,
I had a thought about your problem. Perhaps it would be a good idea to invest in a DNA test at Ancestry.com...you might find his relatives there.

Dear Ms. Reed,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has custody of microfilm copies of operational records relating to U.S. Army Air Force/U.S. Air Force units. We searched the Air Force History index to the microfilm and located 3 files pertaining to Vance Air Force Base and 7 files that pertain to Enid Army Air Field during 1948-1950 . Please read the brief Abstract to determine which records you are interested in and click on the specific PDF icon. In the PDF listing, the IRISREF is the microfilm reel number and note the FRAME and FRAMELST numbers for the location on the reel. Since the reel numbers begin with A or B, please contact RDT2 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to them.
Morning reports for Army units (from November 1, 1912 to 1959) and Air Force units (from September 1947 to June 30, 1966) are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For access to these records, please contact RL-SL via email at email@example.com.
