Karen, I don't I'm thee Bob you want but think I can help some. It does sound like he was in the Air Force. You can go to Google.com and type in Standard Form 180. Print out both sidesand fill it out and send it To ST. Louis. It is fairly simple to follow. The address to mail it to is on the second page you print out. Takes a few months to hear back as there seems to be everyone wanting the same thing. You have his date of birth and and social security number. You can ask for his medical records and medls on this 180 form also.
