    Found Dog Tags

    Went out Sunday to a beach north of us. Hardly any targets in the water except pull tabs and some cans. In chest deep water I dug a set of keys with a Navy Dog Tag and a flash drive. Wanting to return the dog tags I searched for the name in local counties and found one that matched. No phone number was provided so I looked up the subdivision he lived in and called his neighbor. I got a call the next day and it was his dog tags and keys he lost 2 months ago. He said he had to break into his car and hot wire it to get home the day he lost the keys. He was excited about getting back his Navy Dog Tag, he said that was what he missed the most.
    I put the flash drive in rice after washing with fresh water and tumbled and polished the dog tag and keys. The flash drive works!! Sending him the dog tag and attachments today.

    Another good turn by Les. When you get up yonder, a long time from now there will be an xcal and a big scoop waiting for you, with calm warm waters the year round

    I would have missed my Navy dog tags if I lost them. In my day they were made out of wood. You did a good deed Les.

    Great story Les. Dog tags are something that become a part of you when you are in the service.

    I wish I had my old dog tags from the Navy. The one I found are different than the ones issued to me back in the late 50's. The owner of the tags I found was super happy to know I found them and was returning them to him.

    Good Karma, Les!

    And good PR for MD'ers.

    Maybe submit a quick story to the local paper for an easy "human interest" story for them and positive publicity for us.
