    Do you have their DD-214s? Any other documents? If so, and you feel free to post them, they will help us search further.

    I don't. what I have is what I have gathered off of Ancestry.com and from family members. I have serial numbers for all of them, Unit information for the two I listed it for. I know where each of them enlisted/ were inducted. I have bits and pieces of Ruth's duty stations, all stateside.
