My Dad's Uncle Fred's Dog Tag

This belonged to my father's mother's younger brother, Fred White. Buried in the sand for more than 70 years, it was found by an Australian on a beach on Kiriwina Island in Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea. He researched until he found a relative to send it to. It was lost in 1942—the only year the U.S. military printed names & addresses of next-of-kin on dog tags. Fred survived the war, but no unscathed.
