Re: USNR Records
Hi Bonnie,By your description of having a military stone, I assume that he had a military funeral.I would suggest,to contact the Sexton of the Cemetery where he is buried to see if they have any of him military information.I believe they have to have that in order to put a military stone up.Also, if you know this information, contact the funeral home that conducted his burial.
Another possiblity is to contact the regional VA office where he last resided.They may have some records.If they don't, they may be able to pass it on to one of the offices that does.
It would be good to get his Serial Numberif at all possible before writing to the NPRC.
Also, you might post his full name and the cemetery he is buried in.Others may be able to locate some information that way as well.
I hope this helps in your search.
