Boomer, if the soldier died in service, his or her records are available on line. If they survived the war, military records can be ordered from LAC in Ottawa. That is the first thing I would do (order their records). Be aware it can take some time, 6 to 8 months or longer
This link, on this site gives you the information on where and how to order his records
