I have checked my records and have been unsuccessful in finding any information. Individual service records are considered private and family members are supposed to be the only ones that can view them. I have included several links for you to try and get the information you seek. They are free except for the last one which has a free trial then becomes a pay site.
I wish I had more but please check the government websites as they can be very helpful in find the data you seek.
