Default Tracking down military unit information

Armed with only a serviceman's name and service number, what research avenues would you use to try to identify the unit(s) he served in? I am trying to help a friend whose dad served in the AAF in WWII. I was able to locate a service number for him from the NARA site. My buddy is extremely interested in knowing this information. Unfortunately, no family records exist.
