As I understand, in order to be buried in a national cemetery the deceased must be a veteran, spouse or dependent child.
To obtain information on your grandfather you might try.
1) There is a website www.fold3.com that has records available for veterans. I have never used the site so I cannot give you any information.
2) Ancestry.com, which is a paid site, (I am not a member of the website due to the cost) might have your family tree submitted by someone. I have found that not all information submitted is totally accurate therefore you must be cautious of the information that you read.
3) Try calling your local veterans affairs office to obtain the information. I know that records are available to direct relatives. Since you are the surviving grandson you may qualify to receive the information of his records. I would start with this one.
Hopefully this information will help you in some way.
I have a friend that is an excellent researcher, but she is working at a part time job that is more than full time until after Christmas so she is unable to help at this time.
Good luck with your search.
If you decide to add a memorial for your Dad, please let me know as I would like to visit his page. I do not live near the cemetery where my parents or any of my family are buried but I visit their memorials often.

He and wife are buried at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. At the present time the photos are not showing on the memorial pages, that happens sometimes on weekends because so many people are accessing the website. Check back later and you should be able to view the photos that I added.
Have you added a memorial for your Dad? Many people add memorials, it is possible that he has a memorial page.
If I can help you in any way please feel free to contact me.

I am sorry for your loss, William Cecil Tennant was from Arkansas. He was a Private First Class in the Army Air Forces and served during World War II. His wife's name was Virginia K.
Again I am sorry for your loss.
