    WW II Dog Tag / Help Find Family

    While going through one of the hundreds of boxes of junk in the basement, I came across this WW II USNR dog tag. I would love to get this back to his family if possible. Can Ya'll Help. The Veterans name is George William Sawyer Jr. Thanks

    contact the navy department and give them the name and the service number on the tag and they can give you all the info they have and if the family has not moved off that should enable you to get in touch with them. Good luck.

    Thanks. I can't remember if this was a yard sale find or something that I brought home from the landfill when I worked there. There was also a bunch of 1940s an 50s photos in the box.

    Does anybody know what the A P and T/1 mean on these tags?

    Steve, I think the A may be blood type and the P Protestant. There are a couple of people here that are helpful tracking people down. Good luck

    'T 1 45' means the serviceman was vaccinated for tetanus in January of 1945.

ID:	1531191Here are two pictures of a man in uniform that was in the same box. Can anybody ID which branch of the military the uniforms are? There were lots of cool pictures but only dates of pictures or first names on a very few. I'm not sure that the photos are even related to the dog tags. There were just in the same box.

    Navy officer serial numbers between the numbers 350,000 and 600,000 were issued between the years 1945 and 1965. That fits with his tetanus shot in '45.
