Hi, That is definitely a BSM on the ribbon on his uniform. Also, looks like he has a badge with a rifle on it on another pin.
I found a Lt Col Charles F. Learner who was in the Navy muster rolls. I think his ID is 0260565 and he was on a ship called the Bountiful as of 8/7/1944 - destination unknown. That may be why he isn't listed on the NARA site as that is just for Army.
If he was in the Navy, you will have a really good chance of getting his military records as they Naval records were not in the fire.
And I think this is your great-grandfather but not positive.
I'm a member of the site so I have requested a photo of him marker and his wife's. That should hopefully tell us if he had a military funeral and if in the Army or Navy.
