1. I can only imagine someone being reunited with their father/loved one’s dog tags after dropping them decades earlier. Would be quite touching.

  2. https://aad.archives.gov/aad/record-detail.jsp?dt=893&mtch=1&cat=all&tf=F&sc=24994,24995,24996,24998,24997,24993,24981,24983&bc=sl,fd&txt_24994=37634835&op_24994=1&nfo_24994=V,8,1900&rpp=10&pg=1&rid=6804995

  3. Great find - the poor chap nearly made it to the end, only a few months more until the end of the war in Europe in early May 1945.

  4. Why are so many of the casualties listed as DNB? The thing I read said that DNB meant death not realated to the battle, I would think that wouldn't be super common, but I know little.

  5. I'm pretty sure there's a VFW group that takes tags and gives them to their family or keeps them as an remembrance thing.

  6. I think I found the place where he got Killed In Action. Not sure but I found a lot of other items around the dog tag. Rifle ammunition both live (didn't bring that home) and exploded, a US Infantry collor disk in reasonable condition, a US snap button and a ridiculous amount of shrapnel.

  7. Was 29, it would be cool to see if he had any children and reach out to see if they would like to have the dog tag.

  8. I did received a DM with maybe the contact information of two of his sons. But I live in the Netherlands and due to the time difference I will try to contact them later this day.
