    Very cool indeed! I have had this fellows tags on my desk for few years now, maybe this post is trying to tell me something? Anyway I bought them at the very end of any estate sale and were bassicly going to be tossed in garbage. Sadly it was this fellows estate sale after he passed. Click image for larger version.

    Great story and nice work all around! Perhaps I missed it in the thread but did the son happen to say how his dad became separated from this stuff?

    He had no idea how the tag got gone. It may have been after his father passed away in 1992. He said that the family cleaned out the house and trashed & goodwilled a bunch of stuff. I worked at the city landfill from 91 to 2006 and I brought home lots of stuff. It may have been from there or a yard sale, storage bin auction or.......... There was a little painted wooden cross on the chain with the tag that I didn't mention on any of my posts. The son mentioned the cross, that he made as a kid, during our first conversation. That was a positive ID for me.

    Helix, This is how I found the son. I posted this and in 13 minutes, they had contacted family members and given them my phone number. https://www.facebook.com/groups/oldus/?ref=bookmarks

    This is an awesome story.
    I found a Vietnam era dog tag several years ago on an Okinawa beach. I made an attempt to find the owner back then but had no luck - After reading this, I think I will give it another try.

    I've used Angelo's Angels several times. They are really good at locating the dog tags owners or surviving family members. Also, no charge at all. They are great.
