Yes, there was a fire at the Military Personnel Records Center, St. Louis, Missouri in July 1973 that destroyed approximately 85% of all US Army Personnel Files. However, the fire did NOT destroy the copies of the Discharge Documents that were provided to the Veteran when he was discharged.
Virtually all your questions would be answered by the FACTS contained in the Veteran's Discharge Documents. Do you have access to the Veteran's Discharge Documents? If yes, GREAT! If no, please indicate that FACT so that I may suggest locations that the Veteran may have placed copies of his Discharge Documents for future use.
