Rufus B. Mitchell - WW II Veteran

I have been researching my family for 3 years now. My uncle Rufus left home when he was 15 yrs old. I think that was probaly in the 1950's and was never heard or seen again. He had six sisters and 1 brother, all are deceased except for 1 sister. He was born in Crockett Texas, Houston County. I don't know his birthday. I was in Crockett TX at the courthouse during some research Friday (2/25/05), and I happened to look on this wall that had a list of Houston County Honorable World War II veterans, and there was his name: RUFUS B. MITCHELL. I almost died. My family, especialy his only surviving sister has always wondered where he was all of these years.
I tried to get info on him at the courthouse but I didn't know his birthday or anything so they couldn't help me. If someone can get any info on him or tell me how to get it, I would really appreciate it. His father's name was Herord Mitchell and mother's name was Lucy Cummins( maiden name), but during my research his father first name has been spelled (Harred, Herod Hard, etc.) and his mother's name may be listed as Susie. His sister is 79 years old and any info on him would be the greatest gift to her. Thanks again.
