I've tried before. I've found several Kenneth Carlsons, but no one matching birth or death dates, or even the correct state. However, I contacted Saline co, KS and they have his discharge papers, and are going to send me a certified copy of it. I'm so thankful, as now we have documented proof of it. He served for three years in the Army Air Corps. My dad said he was an airplane mechanic. Wish I could have met him.
