In the past I have done quite a bit of research on my great-uncle who was killed in France in 1945. Recently, I read a book about US involvement in World War I, and the author cited extensive records he obtained on individual casualties, etc from the US Quartermaster General. I was wondering if similar records exist for those killed in World War II from this source? Does the Quartermaster General have records of interest for those doing World War II genealogy? Thanks for any help.
Do you have the IDPF for your great-uncle?

Kind of a sad indictment when a service member transitions from 'Personnel' to 'Cargo' or 'Donnage'

Yes, I have his IDPF file, and I checked the website for the National Archives. There is a long list of information the Quartermaster General can provide bit I didn't know how much it pertains to individuals.
I think it is very unlikely that these QM records contain much if any info. on individual soldiers.
