Default Looking up my grandfather?

My grandfather was an Army medic way back when. I tried asking my mother but she doesn't really know much. Is there a database or somewhere I can start digging to try and find out what he did and where?

Any help is appreciated.

Incase anyone else stumbles upon my thread with a similar question. I found a WWII Forum: [URL]http://www.ww2f.com/[/URL]

There is a section where you can request Military Personel records as long as you're next of kin.
