    I will probably give them to the museum at Fort Bragg one day because most of the dog tags that I found were from US paratroopers.But that day is very far from now still will be collecting in my late years.

    Hi a nice collection of dogs, but you say that 45% of the tags checked were kia, this leads me to a question, could these items be grave dug finds, and if so where do you stand re possession of them, were they found by you or did you buy them from others, personally i would be suspicious as to where they came from

    No they were all found by me and not grave dug the reason I know that is because all of them are baried at the Normandy cemetery but one in the USA. IF you find a body there is only one thing to do call the police I did come across one body ww1 French soldier I call the police.

    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
