You can try to contact the Archivio di Stato de L'Aquila with some more accurate info (data, place of birth). "Archivi di Stato" generally have the so-called "Ruolo Matricolare" with the evidence of the situation of a person with respect to his military service, and some can do researches for a small fee.
