my wife and i have been talking about her grand father. she does not know much about him as he died when my wife was 6. after that things were not
really talked about.
we know he was in ww2. we know he had a purple heart.
i want to try to search some data bases, public records...these kinds of things to see what kind of info i could gather.
awards won. battles he was at. injuries taken. these sorts of things.
she thinks he was at iwo jima but from the stories she can not remember if these are stories being told within other stories or was he really
the basic facts we know is when and where he was born. when and where he died. we know he was in ww2. we know he got a purple heart.
if anyone can point me towards any sort of databases of these kinds of things i could search through i would like to be able t complete a picture of
him for her.
