Hi Kathi,You can check the Massachusetts National Cemetery,VFW Post 9917 in Brewster and the courthouse for his DD214 record. They kept military service records in St Louis, but they had a big fire back in the early 1970's and destroyed most of them, i don't know if the VietNam era records were kept in the same area or not but it's worth a try, i'll see if i can find a address. Your father enlistment date was 30 Aug 1963 and release date was 14 July 1966. The MA National Cemetery might have your fathers SS number and should have a copy of his DD214.
