Dear Ms. Corpuz,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs and individual medical reports for enlisted men of the U.S. Army who were separated from the service after October 1912 and prior to 1958 are in the custody of NARA's National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. In many cases where personnel records were destroyed in the 1973 fire, proof of service can be provided from other records such as morning reports, payrolls, and military orders, and a certificate of military service will be issued. Please complete a GSA Standard Form 180 and mail it to NARA's National Personnel Records Center, (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002. You also may fax the form to 314-801-9195. For more information see Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF), Archival Records Requests.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NPRC was closed from March 23 through June 23, 2020. As of June 24th, the NPRC entered into Phase One of a gradual reopening process. The center is currently only servicing emergency requests and will soon expand its service to include time-sensitive requests from veterans for records needed to secure VA home loan guarantees and employment opportunities. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you Lisa, I’m afraid I don’t have all the information needed to further my research. I don’t know his place of birth or his ss#, apparently his was named as my father. I knew his name but that was all, got the information by getting my original birth certificate which didn’t have much information. I have always been curious and have tried to get more information, my mother would never tell me about him except that he died before I was born in 1945 and she has since passed away. Guess I’ll never know more about him. Again thank you for responding..

Alice, thank you so much for the information that you provided. . Based on the ages of these 2 individuals, one of them would be a good match. I am so excited to have gotten the information provided so far. There is hope!!! At least I have some information to further my research.
So much appreciated.
