RESPONSE RECEIVED: WWII DOG TAGS

In honor of Veterans Day 11-11-11 I wanted to give an update on my story....

I recently received a thank you note in the mail from the wife of the husband's dog tags I found! Here is what she wrote to me…it makes me tear up & smile every time I read it...

"Hello Shannon, my name is Betty Yeager, and Im writing to thank you for finding my husbands "dog tags" and for sending them to me. I have no clue how they ended up in CT. I thought he lost them over seas. He shipped out from Virginia but returned to NY, I thought. Paul has been gone since 1991, he would be 92 now, Im 91. My three sons and daughter were happy to see the "tags" and want to do something special with them. Again I thank you for your kindness. God bless you. Betty Yeager"

So great his wife reached out to you! It's sweet that his family will get to have the dog tags back in their family now! :) Good job, littles.

Wow. *tear* Makes you smile at your good deed. That was kind of you. I'm sure it meant a lot to his family that you did that and to be able to hold a little piece of their family history.
