Getting records from NARA

Anyone familiar enough with NARA to know how or if I could get my uncle's military records?

My Uncle Joe Bowman died in 1985. He never married and had no children. My Dad (died 1995) told me that Uncle Joe served under Patton, and was with the troops that went into the Concentration Camps and was disturbed by what he had seen; he never spoke of the experience.

I have no idea what would have happened to his discharged papers. All of the siblings are also deceased.

Since I do not meet the criteria set by NARA

Is there anyway to find out if what my dad said was true?
