How do I find information?
I'm researching my grandfather's military history for my younger cousins since it is an interest of theirs. I've been working on our family history for many years, but I haven't researched any military history to speak of really, so I'm new to this. I do have my grandfather's discharge papers from the Navy, but I'm not sure how to use this information. How can I trace what ship he would have been on? I know that he was stationed in Gulfport, MS, and was also in the Pacific. Can anyone give me any pointers?
