    According to the National Archives it belonged to Jasper Avery Letterman, Born 1915, enlisted May 17, 1944. He was an Army private and his residence in 1944 was Benton County, MO.

    Per Ancestry.com, he died in 1991 (Springfield MO) but he has living relatives. If you want to return the tag to them let me know and I can try to get a point of contact for you. Or, if you have access to Ancestry.com, you can do the same.

    That is awesome for you to return it. I lost my dog tags in a house fire and wish I still had them.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Here's an obit on his son which mentions his mother, Jasper's wife, her name and city of residence at the time of this obit. She may be the heir to that dog tag. Great find and good luck in your continued search.

    Excellent job !!
    Now, can you tie in your neighbor's yard with the dog tag?
    Maybe the granddaughter can shed some light on that aspect.
