    I'd say that's probably a very rare piece of military history! Congrats on it.

    Thank you very much, GW! I didn't think of Ancestry and I even have an account there. Corporal Goode was young to have earned his stripes. Rank came hard back then.

    This is a dog tag stamped Clyde F Goode, Cpl, Co(?) 24th infantry, USA. The reverse is stamped with his serial number. The 24th infantry regiment was a Buffalo Soldier unit comprised of African American enlisted and white officers. They were assigned to General 'Blackjack' Pershing to secure the border from Pancho Villa's forces. All of this about about 6 miles and 103 years from where I'm sitting. Holding a piece of history.
    The 24th served with distinction. Hand salute, Corporal Goode.
    I love it , it seems it was typed in a hurry.

    GREAT SAVE!!!!

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    Very nice find. Anything where you can put a name, date, place, etc., from years ago puts it all into perspective. At least for me it does. Congrats on the neat relic.
