Subject: [NJ-SOM-BOUND-BROOK] CHAT: Found DOG TAGS!...VIET NAM!
Date: Sun, 05 Aug 2001 08:34:09 -0600
This was sent to me from another list and I feel it could be important
to all of us. I've already visited the site and it appears to be on the
up and up.
I hope you all have a SUPER Sunday! :)
>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 servicemen who 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 19 cents per tag!
>They brought home several hundred tags. 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,
>"http://www.founddogtags.com" listing the names of all those whose tags
>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 dogtag to its righttful 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 to everyone 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.
