My father-in-law, Ernest Francis FULLAM, lived in Princeton, NJ, during WWII. We have his commission as a 1st Lt in 1939 and several draft status cards. The one for Dec 1944 has disc which I assume means discharge. He worked on the Manhattan Project in NYC so was never activated. I've been told discharge papers were filed with the County Clerk, so I assume they would be in Trenton. Do you know if they are still in Trenton? Would they have been archived somewhere else? My son is also in the Army Reserve and would really like to have this information (as would I). Thanks so much for any information regarding WWII discharge papers.
