Help identifying a ww2 soldier

Recommended Posts

So i recently bought this helmet. It has a serial number in it and the helmet is navy, so the soldier must be navy too. Any help on identifying this soldier, or where to look? I haven't really done any research on soldiers, because almost all my helmets I have have came from family of the soldier. I took a chance on this one...

Is there any way to research soldiers in the navy by their serial number? NARA doesn't have it, or ancestry.com

I know this was an honest mistake, but to be given the respect that they deserve follow these guidelines:

 

Army- Soldier

Navy- Sailor

USMC- Marine

Air Corps or Air Force- Airman

That's a nice helmet, I'd love to have that in my collection. Good work!

That number looks like an Army serial number, it doesn´t show up in NARA but that happens, I have that problem with a medal group, I have both his papers and dog tag but he doesn´t show up in NARA.

 

Navy number was more like 000-00-00, at least the ones I have.

I am not sure but the first zero looks like a C which could be the sailors first letter of his last name.
