Looking for information on a veteran.
Can anyone tell me how I could go about finding information on a veteran of World War II?When going through my father-in-laws belongings after his death, we located a single tag with the name of Paul Babyak on it.It also gives his army serial number which is 12028088.It states "Russ. Orth." as well.Based on this information I did a search at NARA.gov and found that he was in the Army and enlisted on May 26, 1941.Under term of enlistment it says "enlistment for Hawaiian Dept." Component of army states "reg. army".It then goes on to give Box # 0079, Film Reel # 1.72.I would like to find out if this person was killed in action and how he and my father in law were connected.I am clueless as to how or if I could find out any other information.If anyone could shed some light on this, I would appreciate it.
