Not sure if you can direct me. I am looking for my foster brother who was enlisted in the army in Boulder co in 1979. I lost track of him shortly after that, he was in Alaska last I heard from him and that was roughly 1980 or 1981. Can you tell me how I can start a trail from when he enlisted to when he left the army (if he left) and where he was when he left?
