Tags Found In Viet Nam.
On a recent "Today Show" there was a story about two men who went to
Hanoi on a
business trip. The men encountered a guy selling old GI dog tags from US
were killed during the Viet Nam War. They were disgusted by the thought
of this man
profiting from the sale of these tags.
Upon returning to the U.S., they decided to go back to Viet Nam and
purchase ALL the
dog tags. They did so, paying 14 cents per tag! They brought home several
The plan is to return the tags to surviving family members, when they can
find them. The
process has already begun with one set being turned over to a grieving
Mom on July 4th,
(coincidentally, it was on her birthday)!
These two men have set up a website, listing the names of all those
whose tags they
purchased. If you lost friends, family, or know of someone who lost a
loved one in Viet
Nam, I suggest you check out this website. If you recognize a name,
there's an e-mail
address to contact these two men and to help in their efforts to return
the dog tag to
it's rightful survivor. I'm sure a family member would be eternally
grateful to have such
an important item returned.
Please help by checking this website. And please send the website address
you know. The more people who see the lists, the greater the chance of
returning ALL the
tags to those who lost loved ones in Viet Nam.
The discovery of these tags after so many years from servicemen dead,
missing and in
some cases still alive is mind boggling when you consider the emotions
that will be
reunited. I leave you to your own thoughts on this one.
