The USAHEC does not possess individual military service records of Soldiers from any time period.
Records of Soldiers from BEFORE October 1912 (enlisted personnel) and July 1917 (officers) are on file here:
The National Archives and Records Administration
Textual Archives Services Division
700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20408-0001
Copies of extant pension and service records can be purchased from that agency, as well. Researchers can begin their research by visiting the NARA website.

Records from AFTER October 1912 (for officers) or June 1917 (enlisted) may have been destroyed in a fire in 1973. Those that were not can be found here:
National Personnel Records Center
9700 Page Boulevard
St. Louis, MO 63132-5100
