Default Vietnam Dog Tags

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. (and some who are still alive) They were disgusted by the thought of this man profiting from the sale of these tags. Upon returning to the US, 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, listing the names of all those whose tags they purchased. 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 a e-mail address to contact these two men and to help in their efforts to return the dog tag to it's rightful survivor. I'm sure a family member would be eternally grateful to have such an important item returned. Please help by checking this website.
