North Carolina volunteer

My great uncle, Marion DeKalb Hagler, North Carolina, was in Battery I, Sixth Artillery which became 66th Company Coastal Artillery on March 3, 1901. He was Honorably Discharged on March 22, 1901. He re-enlisted on May 16, 1904 into Company A, 11th Artillery. He supposedly deserted, but his father, brothers and sister said he was ill and died because of wounds he received. The military told them that he died of unrelated causes, and therefore did not see fit to grant his father a pension. I know he was in Hawaii at Camp McKinley in 1900. He's on the census. We also believe he saw in action in the Philippines. He was in a military hospital somewhere in Wyoming. He may or may not have died in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1908.
I would like to know how to go about getting detailed records of his military service and his medical records...partly to see if he was truly ill from the military service, or if his illness was something hereditary.
Thanks,
Suzanne
