Unfortunately no. Thank you for helping. I found a grave site on findagrave.com with the dates of 10/31/1925 - 11/12/1992

SI USN WWII . The Golden Gate National Cemetery is where it's located. I'm unfortunately moving backwards, but this is the closest I've come to the story I was told of my Grandfather.

I found this but the birth date is in December of 1925:

I typed his DOB incorrectly, it is Dec. 31, 1925. Wow! Thank you for finding this. How did you manage to find his parents?
This gets so confusing... I can't seem to find anything pertaining to Missouri with the same dates of birth for this James. I did find something in Pennsylvania but now I'm really not sure who I'm tracking.
