    Military Dog Tag Found in 2000 Returned in 2012

    Heres a fun lost, found and returned. I was hitting the shallow waters of a nearby lake one evening in Sept 2000 with my Stingray. I dug the usual handful of clad and also got lucky with a small silver ring. One of the last targets of the day was a military dog tag. I had kept this in my display case all these years and this past winter decided to pull it out and do some research on it. With the advancements of the internet its a lot easier to figure stuff out these days. I ended up finding this guys Facebook page and sent him a message to see if he was the right person. After a few messages it was determined to be his. I mailed it back to him and he sent a few more messages about losing it and what he ended up doing with it after he got it back. I'll post a snippet of those below.
