The dog tags and bracelet didn't scan well but they are over 70 years old. The two cards and dog tags were my father in law's. The bracelet was his brother's. Unfortunately, his brother's bracelet is all that made it home. I have the original letter from the Department of Defense to his mother about the death and a picture of the cemetery in England where he was buried.
Dog tags and bracelet both have the usual info but also give the next of kin full name and address. My question is when did they omit next of kin info on tags etc.
The secret mission mentioned on the cards was that they were headed to the Philippines to take the islands back from Japan.
