Looking for info on my great grandpa
My grandfather, Marion Arlington Conner, served in Co. A 5th Eng Bn 5th Marine Division when it stormed the beach on Iwo Jima. I have a few letters, and have been able to scrounge that and his serial number from them. Anyone know him from their days in the Corps, or is there anyway to use this info and the serial number to track his history. Unfortunately, he had Alzheimer's since I was a little boy and died before I ever got a chance to talk to him about his days. Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the notice, it should be done. If I missed anything, let me know so I don't get locked out.

Here is a link to the National Archives where you can get a copy of your grandfather's military records. That service number will come in handy.
Military Personnel Records
Just a piece of military terminology trivia you'll need in filling out the request forms: People got service numbers, equipment gets serial numbers.
Good luck. Lets us know how it comes out for you. Just resurrect this thread.
