    Default Finding records for a US Army Captain WW2

    I am trying to trace a US Army officer that served during WW2 A Captain Robert Temple service number 34727459 ...... With UK records it's easy but the US ones? I've tried and hit a brick wall. I'd rather find a site that doesn't charge you if possible. I saw a site on here the other day that you could search by service number but I can't remember where it was.............can anyone help please



    Thanks
    Cheers
    John


    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    That's "the" site to begin your search. But alas it only gives you his enlistment records and nothing more. I have always hit a brick wall after this. You really need a paid ancestry site after this. That said sometimes you can find info from the "find a grave" sites. It's hit or most miss but I have hit the jackpot once or twice.
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
