Hi, I'm trying to find any service records on my grandfather Earl Taylor Fairchild 7/17/1917 born Oklahoma, parents Bertam H. Fairchild and Olivia Miranda (Taylor) Fairchild. Enlisted in 1942 in Oklahoma City, Ok. Listed as an Immeterial Warrant Officer Class:Private single and with no dependents at the time, occupation construction foreman 70 in tall and 150 lbs. I do have his original dog tags, I also know that at some point during his enlistment he was in Egypt, but only because i have a picture of him in his uniform with 2 other soldier on camels sitting in front of the sphinx! Other than that I have no idea anything about his life in the Army! Would like to know what he did exactly, company name, awards or honors, everything i can! Can someone please point me where i need to go or help me get the info!? Thanks!

Earl eventually married Mary "Eleanor" Robinson Fairchild of Bishop, TX and they moved to a farm 5 miles north of ripley until his death in 1993.

I don't have the exact website information but I believe his WWII service records are in a repository in St. Louis. Call your nearest Army recruiter for assistance.
