    There is an online data base of California WWI soldiers-This is the only one that fit both name and location. As for what happened to Harry, there are a couple different Harry Reinhardt's that were living in Berkeley after the war. The one I'd guess is most probable as to being "Your" Harry Reinhardt was born in 1887 and died 39 years ago in 1975. No doubt his personal effects were scattered when he died almost 40 years ago. He may or may not have had any living family at the time, so away they went.

    Absolutely. When you can See the person who's tags or property you have in your home and hand, it Definitely makes it more personal. They may be long gone themselves, but this way they are never forgotten.
