    Not something you see every day!
    When the subject is flamethrowers, Im reminded of the George Carlin quote:
    "The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    it show that the dog tags found were used and part of it found buried. could it be the owner who wear it could be killed and someone took it out and throw it away? or discarded by Casualties Unit after the owner were buried with the other half and his name was recorded in the report?
