Hi Jamie- here are a few suggestions:

is your grandfather still living? If not, try to obtain a death certificate from the county he died in (assuming he died in the U.S.) They usually list the names of parents-unless he was adopted. I am unfamiliar with adoptions in Germnay, so you might check around on the internet for suggestions on how to proceed. Try this web site:
<> Lots of tips here!

Also, try to get a copy of an obituary from the local newspaper.

Do you have older relatives that might be able to fill you in on your heritage?

Did your grandfather serve in the German or U.S. military? You can probably obtain service records.

Hope this helps, and Good Luck!
