I have written the office in St. Louis, Mo. for my fathers military records and they wrote back saying they have no record. I don't have a serial # or a social security # for him. which they say i need . (none on his death certificate). He was in the Marines.All i have is a picture of him with a group. At the bottom of the picture it says-- PLATTON 248 US MARINE CORPS, SAN DEIGO, CALIF. 1944 At the bottom of that it says-- PL ST.C.E.CHANEYPFC.G.M.LONSWAY
I also have a couple letters he wrote to his sister and his address was--Pvt.Lester James Evans-Plt.248 R.D.M.C.B.,San Diego, Calif.
Pvt. Lester J. Evans---3rd Casual Plt. San Diego, 41,Calif. I remember my mother recieving monthly checks for us children.--social security ? or Veterans benefits ? After her death my grandmother recieved the checks until we each were 18 yrs old. I have spent several hours at the local Security Office trying to find information but nothing can be found. I would appreicate any suggestions as how to find the records i'm looking for. ThanksHelen
