Search under the Veteran's Administration national archives or keep searching under different WWII websites for different records. Unless he was in a major battle it will be harder to find. If this certificate you have was his discharge it may have his unit and you could search under that, under the branch he was in. That's what my wife had to work with on her dad's records, but without much luck.
