my great uncle joined the us navy, all i know is where he is buried. golden gate national cemetery. he was a gm2. and his date of birth and death. i am stuck now , do i need his social security number to find out how life during war was for him and other brave souls. It seems he met his young brother in France during the war, his brother was in British army, they never even knew the other existed due to family fall out.. i would love to know how is was for him.god bless him and all.
