Is there a website to find out a service man's name/unit from service number?

I am intrigued by the following and would like to try and find out if the service number matches any airmen who served?
I have no idea if this is a US, UK service number (or other) but believe they would have served in Italy.
The image attached is all I know... any help appreciated, thanks, Neil.

According to the NARA Enlistment Records the number belongs to Richard J. Anderson who enlisted on 10 March 1941. He was from Wisconsin.

Most likely this person: https://nl.findagrave.com/memorial/8...ard-j-anderson
He was from Dunn County, Wisconsin (1919-1994).
