Hi,You probably have this information since you have his ASN.But just in case see below the ********* line.
You might try contacting the county clerk and/or State archives where he enlisted.They may have a more complete enlistment record and his DD214 (discharge).That will give you a little bit of information.
If you have written to the NPRC and they say "burned", don't take their word.Fill out the additional paperwork with all the information that you possibly can and send in again.Give it a few months, then contact them.Keep track of number of contacts, who you communicate with and when.
If you haven't written to the NPRC, fill out the Standard Form 180 and submit.
If he survived the war, check with the VA to see if he received benefits.If he did, they should have some information.
Also, if he had a military funeral, check with the Sexton of the Cemetery and the funeral home as they may have some information.
If he was killed in action, there is an address to write to.But be advised that what you will receive can be quite graphic.Be sure to mention Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF) and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).Results take several months.
