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.

Researching and collecting German Musician and Band related material for all organizations and military branches, 1900-1945. Always seeking such material.
