Now,I don't know if this is your Father..so please keep that in mind.But when I put in his name and California with approximate birth date on Ancestry..well,this is what came up.
Vernon Castle Lee
b.30 Apr 1920 in Tennessee
Father Scott C Lee
Mother Daisy E (Carr) Lee
Siblings Birch,Belton and Lois.
Death date for Vernon 12 Aug 1998 in Louisiana.
Burial was in September in San Diego.
Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
Section cbd Row 1 Site 607
His SSN number was 436-26-4145.
He was a Corporal in the US Air Corp and later joined the US Navy.
Air corp enlistment date was 17 Nov 1943 and his release date was 3 Jan 1946.
US Navy enlistment date was 13 Aug 1946 and release date was 30 Mar 1947.I couldn't find his military numbers for either service.
Now,again..this may be him..a Vernon C Lee (born in 1920 ) married Antonia C Leon in 1944 and they divorced in Oct 1972.
He is listed on the website www.findagrave.org
but not much info about him..no names of a wife or kids.
However,the inscription does say he was a loving Father and Grandfather.
I sent a message to someone who has a person by the same name on their family tree.I await their answer.On that tree there is a son Vernon born in 1948 and died in 2008.Again,don't know yet if its the same fellow.
Wow,a lot of info for you!If you want some of these documents from Ancestry (or are you a member) let me know.
Bye for now.
