When the Veteran passed away (sorry to be morbid) his family provided the Funeral Home a copy of the Veteran's Discharge Documents. You may wish to contact the Funeral Home, to see if the Funeral Home still has the copy of the Discharge Documents on file. Most Funeral Homes keep files active for 30-40 years.
Veterans were encourgaed to register a copy of their Discharge Documents at the Court House of the County they would reside in after WW 2. IF the Veteran did so, you (or anyone else) may visit the Court House that the Veteran registered a copy of his Discharge Documents at & obtain a photocopy. Discharge Documents are in the Public Domain, so anyone may obtain a copy of any Veteran's Discharge Documents. I do so on a weekly basis for my business.
