Find a grave of a servicemember buried in a military cemetary. Not all encompassing, but it is a good start. An example of one entry:
Lonnie D. Rister
Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army
Service # 38372091
291st Infantry Regiment, 75th Infantry Division
Entered the Service from: Texas
Died: 1-Feb-45
Buried at: Plot A Row 16 Grave 20
Epinal American Cemetery
Epinal, France
Awards: Silver Star, Purple Heart

I have yet to use this personally but I'll take a stab at it later and see how things pan out.

For those of you looking for info on a person you can add these links to your toolbox.

Happy hunting.
 
The archives.gov link has a ton of info, but a lot of missing items as well. I wouldn't consider it to be conclusive, only a good starting point.
