How do you find World War 2 records for a father who served in the Philippines and received an Honorable discharge because of illness and then was shipped back?

Go to the web site for the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. Fill out a standard form 180 with the requested information. You'll need the individuals service number. On July 12, 1973, a fire at the NPRC destroyed approximately 16-18 million Official Military Personnel Files. Good luck!!
