Hey J, How are you!!!
Don't quote me, but I don't believe the social security system was in play during the time of his enlistment in the military. If there is a number for him and he survived to the 30's or 40's, he may have one and he could possibly show up in the SS death index. Even then, he may have been working at an age that it didn't matter if he had a number or not?
If you have one of the latest versions of Family Tree Maker it may have this information on a disc. Otherwise one of the members of the board might be able to assist you further.
Futhermore, have attempted to obtain a certificate of death for him? Perhaps his parents are mentioned there. You may also want to look for some relatives who may have an obituary from the time of his death for clues to who his parents where.
As our host likes to drum into us. "standard genealogical reseach methodology" is required to uncover those little kernals of information that will lead us to the information we seek.
