Be sure to include any alternate spelling of the last name.
On line form allows you to request information from your, or your relative's, military personnel record. This option is only available if you are the veteran or next of kin (surviving spouse that has not remarried, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, or brother). Otherwise you will need to send in the SF180. The link is

NOTES - I don't believe Kelland is Leo's birth name.
James Kelland would be his s/father OR the census takers listed him as a Kelland. James Kelland immigrated in 1897 & Leo was born in 1895.

Emma, while married to James Kelland lost 2 children. One child in 1901 & the other in 1904 [still born].

Leo may have never known his ture identity!

Leo does not appear on the SSDI. HE possibly died before 1960.
