We're not lost, Sergeant, We're in … France


Dogtags Finding Their Way Home

Two stories of lost dogtags catching up with veterans popped into my email recently.

  • Private Kent Potter lost his dogtag in France during World War I. Determined Frenchmen made sure that it reached his family after they found it. Hat tip to Fred, from Easy Company, re-enacted.
  • Marine Richard Urie lost one of his two dogtags on Saipan during World War II. The wife of the man who found it works for the US Attorney’s Office there and one of the deputy marshals there has his own dogtags framed in his office. They were able to find the 86-year-old devil dog and return his lost dogtag to him. Hat tip to Paul Clifford in the Trigger Time airborne forums.
