    How do you look up someones military service record?

    Im doing some research on my Grandpa who was in the Army during WWII. We have his medals and uniform at home but I was hoping there was a place online or someone I could contact that can provide me a detailed list of his service record and exactly where he was during the 5 years he served.

    I know we have allot of vets on here, hopefully someone can help

    Thanks

    I'm looking for the same thing. For the past couple years I've been searching for my dad's service records. You need them to receive the Veterans Flag with the Display case. I tried doing it through a company that searches for records and they said "currently all service records are missing." Guess someone didn't file them where they were supposed to go.

    Contact the Veterans Administration directly.. dont have a number for them but you should be able to find it in the pages. They should be able to help/or point you in the right way.

    Thanks Amber you beat me to it. Very good site. I have used it several times. Remember that service #'s before about 1970 were differnt than your SSN.

    Good luck! I hope that site works for you!

    I know that at some point (at least thats what they told us) the records were burned in a fire in St. Louis (?) When my uncle tried to get his records they said they had been destroyed, he served 2 tours in Vietnam.
