I have been trying to get my father's military records but have hit a dead end NARA can not help me without his Service Number. My parents are deceased so I really don't have relative to ask. Anyway here is what info I do have:
Woodrow (none) Wilson DOB: 7 May 1915Ironton, Ohio DOD:Nov 1985Albany, Oregon SSN: 282-12-3112 issued Ohio (before 1951)
