Hello, His records more than likely burned in the fire of 1973. One option to try to get some information such as first/last unit etc, is to see if his enlistment and/or discharge records were recorded in the county/state where he settled down in after the war. It's good that you have his ASN. That will make it easier to search for.

Other options - if he had a military funeral, contact the funeral home and the Sexton of the cemetery where he is buried as they may have military records.

Also, if he was a member of a VFW, they may have some info.

And you might contact the VA as well.

Good Luck and maybe others will provide more ideas.
