Use the American Battle Monuments Commission website It is very easy to use and if anyone needs help let me know, but the site is pretty self explanatory.  The information given is helpful too as it gives a date of death, regiment, division, and rank of each soldier.

If they are not buried over seas it will be harder to find, but your best bet is the site This site is a little harder to use, but often times it is linked to searches.
