I will follow this link and suggestin, I had not thought of the VA
NARA had nothing in his file due to fire, hopefully VA will have something.
I also recieved a response from HATTIE who put me in another direction on obtaining a copy of his medals and citation info, I know he did have medals acc to his widow but no one seems to know where they are at this time,She recently passed after 10 yrs in a home, and her house was sold many yrs ago.
He recieved disibility until 1971 retirement from waterworks facility here in Evansville,IN. I am sure of that acc to his youngest child,who married that yr and was removed from his disibility payments.
Getting his unit/company info will help me retrace his travels during the war...
