My grandfather Joseph Stanczak served in the US National Army during WWI. I discovered this info by enhancing his collar device on a photo of him in uniform. This is the only link (beside old family discussions)of my grandfather being in the war. My grandfather and great grandfather (served in the Russian army during the Russian/Japanese war)would tell tales of their service days to each other. However, no one is left who could provide additional info. The right collar disc has the USNA insignia on it and the other side has 302 above the artillary symbol. Through some research I learned the 302 were part of the 76th division. They were trained at Camp Devens, MA. My parents tried to get my grandfather a military footstone, but the VA could not find any record of him. I believe he was living in CT at the time of the war. Any advice on how to get any records?
