    Help with WWI Era Dog Tag....

    Today I took the CTX3030 out and was hunting in a yard that I have hunted frequently, among some of the other finds, I did recover this WWI? dog tag.. It has the soldier's serial number on the back. I was wondering if any one on here knows how to get more info on the soldier through the name and ser.#? Thanks Evan
    btw I have tried
    www.archives.gov and aad.archives.gov and haven't found any info.. I may be stuck on this one...

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yes.. I talked to the man who created that web page, I told him what I found and was looking to return the tag to his family. He was rather rude and in his last correspondence told me that I had a corroded chunk of metal and he had a grandfather with a great history... so I left it at that.. He would not tell me what his grandfather's service number was to confirm it was him, he didn't seem to care about it.. So hopefully it wasn't his.. I was hoping to reunite it with someone who would appreciate it... thanks Casper..I appreciate the help..

    Yeah I was sort of shocked too. I don't understand why someone would act like that.. if that was my grandfather and someone had found his Dog tags I would do everything I could to get it back...
