If you have his discharge papers they don't have his date of enlistment? If he was in SpW 1898 and out 1920 then he "retired" from the service and would have been Veterans Pension Benefits, medical care. He also would have been in during WWI. Have you read how to research service records at www.archives.gov (NARA Library)? Also Check Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

If they are your grandparents then with Eileen's death in 1996 there has to be records for her too with husbands service. Check her name at NARA and Veterans Affairs.
