James Johnston Sibley and WWII Records
My grandfather, James J Sibley, passed 12 years ago.I would like to know how to go about obtaining military records on him as to when he enlisted and and when he was discharged from the service. He was in the US Army Corp of Engineers, I know, and at the end of the war, he was in Okinawa.He never talked about this time, and he also left out the dates of service in our family history books and unfortunately no one in the family is of any help. Also, it is my understanding that during wartime, that there were no leaves once enlisted..........is this true? It was for my other grandfather......any information on how to obtain this info would be helpful. Have looked on VA website and it really does not help me as to how to go about this.
