Desperately needing help with finding info on my Grandfather

Greetings from San Diego, Ca!

I've been to COUNTLESS paid and free sites trying to locate information regarding my Grandfather...LORAN MITCHELL TERRELL. Here is the information I DO have that has been confirmed/verified:

Loran Mitchell Terrell
DOB 14 AUG 1920
Died 6 DEC 1991
Place of death/Burial: Walters, Cotton, Oklahoma
Spouse: Laura Naomi Hood
Marriage place: Waurika, Jefferson, Oklahoma

I DO know (and have photos) that he was a Private in the US ARMY), yet NPRC has NO RECORD of him due to a massive fire that destroyed over 85%a of Army WWII records. ENLISTMENT DATE: 18 NOV 1942

I have my Grandmother's (Laura Naomi Hood) family back 27 Generations. My Grandfather, on the other hand (sarcasticvally speaking) must have taken his entire line with him when he passed away!

I have absolutely NO CLUE as to where he was born, where he grew up or what he did growing up.

I would **GREATLY** appreciate **ANY** help from you with this MADDENING project! THANK YOU!

Ed Terrell
San Diego, Ca
