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

    The son I talked to was named Terry, living in Grand Haven MI. He was blown away how much I knew about his dad lol. I knew we weren't on a wild goose chase, time well spent even though I should have been working lol.

    All, 2 different Donald H. Schuler's served in WWII (see attached). Both born in 1923. The one from Wisconsin has the correct serial #. The one from Michigan was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Grand Rapids. Info found on FamilySearch. Live links in the pdf file...

    Here is Donald's record on fastpeoplesearch -> https://www.fastpeoplesearch.com/don...07496931633285 his relatives are listed about 1/3rd the way down. Not sure how up to date their contact info is...

    SBD, good luck contacting one of them. If unable, there might be a local VFW post or someone else that can assist.

    Yes... looks like the guy buried in Grand Rapids is a red herring with some coincidental biographical details. The guy from Wisconsin is our man but note that - as per the database record I originally posted - your source has the same error. Both incorrectly give the service number as 10096043, whereas the dog tag is 16096043. I’m sure that's no more than a scanning error when converting old paper records to modern digital records... but it has the implication that any searching of military records will need to cover both possibilities (of service number).

    There’s a full list of WWII US Army and Army Air Force Casualties (including MIAs) for Wisconsin at the link below. No “Donald Schuler” listed for Milwaukee County, nor any other county, so I guess we can conclude he survived the war physically unscathed.

    Nice work fellas!
    That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

    Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.


    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    Einstein once said: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

    Good morning dear friend of this forum!
    Many thanks for all your efforts to give a face to dog tag!
    I'll give all your precious informations to man who found tag hoping he will return to relatives. Perhaps something that can confirm he correct identification (photo, place of service of Schulers here in Italy, etc.) of family will help he for return way.
    About serial number please consider also hipothesis that when tag was stamped it can be have the mistake and was throw away in the field where it was found.
    Again many thanks to everyone of you.
    If you prefer share me informations with email please use our association email redazione@1943salerno.it
    Best day.
    Cheers from Italy.
