    WW2 Dog Tag in the Detroit River

    For those interested, Monday I found a USN, WW2 dog tag. It gave a bottle top signal on my CZ-21. I dig all signals. Up comes a stainless steel dog tag with a small silver chain attached. Monday evening I shot off an email to Angelo's Angels. Got a reply yesterday with a lot of information on the family. I was able to contact a step daughter in Wisconsin and she put me in touch with a sister in Michigan. I got an email from the sister in Michigan last night and I will be sending the dog tag to the family in Grand Ledge MI soon. He died in 1988. He used to live in Detroit.

    Please leave a ring after the beep. Thank You.
