Re: WWII Veterans
I can relate to your being new to searching for information.The gentleman who gave you the NARA and deceased records information is correct, I have recently received info about my grandfather who perished in France Nov. '44, and is buried there.
However, if your relatives did not die in the war, then you may want to try the veterans forum.I am not sure what the actual site address is (not very good at this computer stuff) but if you type in "veterans forum" for search you will be able to find it...(you will know it is the right site by the Duke webboard reference)
This forum is excellent, and many vets offer help in searching for reunions, alumni, associations, etc.
Good luck in your search and I hope you find all you seek.
