Survivors Guilt - Contacting the fallen's family.

Hello, my friend was a surgical tech during his deployments. He has been out for a few years due to an injury, but suffers from PTSD. A large portion of his PTSD is from US soldiers he wasn't able to save. He personally lost 2 American soldiers while giving CPR.
If I had the info on the dates and places he was- is there a place I can contact to find out those two soldiers? I don't want to ask him because he may not remember and I don't want to further exacerbate his depression by talking about it w/o him bringing it up.
I would love it if I could reach out to those two soldiers families and just ask them if they could find it in their hearts to write him letters telling him they don't blame him for their loved one not pulling through and possibly even thanking him.
I think it would be amazingly healing for him.
Any help you an offer would be greatly appreciated. I'm not even sure where to start.
