J.P. Thanks for the help.I am trying to get the records through the National Personnel Records Center, Military Personnel Records at 9700 Page Ave. St. Louis. I understand the ss# and service # now.Thanks for clearing that up.But some of the questions they send back on the questionaire are: 1. Place of Basic Training 2. Type of Military Assignment 3. Last Military organization 4. Seperation station
The other questions I answered were name, SS#, (which he had to get after the war), branch, volunteered, enlisted. Date of birth , close relative, and place of birth.
It is weird they are not asking for a service number but only a ss#.
Maybe I can find some answers here. Hope you can help.Dan
