Yes, many were drafted into the military for the Korean War, and someone born in 1933 would have fallen into the correct age bracket. The National Archives has military records. Try this link for addresses and info on ordering a copy of military records. If there is a military record, it should say what the enlisted person's home address was, as well as where he mustered out. Those two pieces of information are decent places to start looking, though it's no guarantee he would still be there. From there you can try city directories for addresses, etc. Also, you can try looking for web sites or membership groups of any unit he was assigned to, that might get you current info as well if he belongs/belonged to or registered with any of them. Also, if you just search Korean War records, you'll come up with a ton of sites that might be helpful.
