Hi, Could this be his partial enlistment information below? Notice he was born in TN and enlisted in GA but that doesn't mean he wasn't part of the OH National Guard I don't think. Not an expert so check out the information below. If the information below is the Von M Fox you are looking for, you could try to obtain his military papers by submitting Standard Form 180 (google that). Hopefully his didn't burn in the 1973 fire. It takes a bit of time to receive the files if they do exist and if you aren't a direct relative, I believe there is a charge. And if it is him, you could try to obtain his discharge papers from the County Clerk and/or State Archives where he settled down in after the war. Hopefully he registered them with the clerk or state.

Not sure what all you are looking for so here are some other options. If he had a military funeral, contact the Sexton of the Cemetery and/or the funeral home that handled the burial as they may have some military paperwork. He died 9/4/1995 probably in TN....Knoxvillle, Knox County. You could try for an obit. Also try a VFW unit in the area and/or the VA if you know that he collected benefits. Hope some of this helps.
