Well, there is a lot of informatin regarding people that are in the military available at the National Archives in Washington D. C. Everybody who has served in the military has his or her records there if before WWI. After WWI, the records are held elsewhere, I think somewhere in Missouri.

Another source is the Cavalry Museum in Fort Riley, Kansas, but it is usually easier for them to find things if you have a record of their service.

Other sources are the various genealogy web sites such as Heritage.com. These are available on the net through subscription, and some libraries provide these as well.

The net is a good starting point. You can Google up the name of your relative and often that will provide leads.

If you know where he lived for any length of time the main branch of the public library will sometimes have information that they can find.

Good luck!
