Default Military History?

Can anyone get military histories for me, I am looking for my grandfathers records and also the records of a big douche that claims to have been in the 101st airborne, a green Barret, and a Ranger.

Thanks

You might have trouble with your grandfathers records. There was a large fire in the storage facility where the old records were kept. Most of the files were lost. My grandfathers records was lost in the fire. All they had was the dates that he served and his rank. But good luck with the search.

My grandfathers records are mainly what I am looking fore. I know one was a warehouse clerk and the other one from what my grandmother described was in the Normandy invasion and then an advanced scout but I would like a more reliable version of the truth as this came from a 78yr old woman with borderline dementia.

As for the other guy, I really don't care all that much, just thought hey why not as long as I am searching.

as a civilian I had a very hard time trying to get any information from the national archives. my wife was still in the army and she called for me and they looked up what information they had on my grandfather. the fire destroyed a shit-ton of service records from the turn of the century to the mid 70s.
