    Was he an officer in any of those units? Are you getting his name from those ORB's or from family or from log book?

    Do you have an enlisted airmans number or an officers number for him?

    have you checked AIR78 for his enlistment number?
    have you confirmed that is his full name or does he have a middle name?

    If an officer, have you found him in LG?
