A Curtis Mattox (African American b. 1915)of Hillsborough County Florida has enlistment at the NARA ADD website:
He enlisted October 9, 1945 so if the birth date of Mario is 1945 than all the below information which I think is this Curtis, I found is NOT the correct one. With basic training he would not be assigned to a foreign base before the end of December 1945.
If Mario was born in late 1946 then this MAYBE the correct service man. Here is what else I found. I make no guarantees this is the the same man that fathered Mario. He is just the closest I find with information provided.
