My great my great grandfather was in the Navy in WW1 and I don't have any idea how long he served or when he got out? I found a US Veterans gravesites index that's how I know he was in the Navy. Also found a US National Homes for Disable soldiers index too. So I am wondering what that is about. So am hoping maybe someone could help me find information on my g grandfather in the service. Please.
