There is, of course, few documents left after the fire but, aside from unit histories, is there any repository left for service documents related US veterans of WW II? I found one single document related to my father (USN Air Corps) and only one for my father-in-law. Fortunately, my brother has a diary that my father kept, really just where he was at such-and-such a time. Ditto for my father-in-law (USN) but a better diary, names, places, conditions.
Funny thing, these two gentlemen never met that we know of, but they were on Samar Island, the Philippines at the same time. Small world.
