|James F. Courtney Dog ID Tag|
I hope readers have their sleuthing hats on because we have another mystery - another American soldier's Dog Tag has been found in Normandy and the finders wish to send it back home to descendants.
Here are the details from Dan:
I have been contacted by a friend who lives near Saint Mere Eglise in Normandy. A dog tag has been locate which belongs to James F. Courtney, service number 33196637. Mr Courtney is listed as a resident of DC and enlisted in Ft Meyer Virginia. His wife is listed as Mary Courtney. The people of Normandy would like to contact Mr. Courtney or his family to return this lost item. I have been searching for a year without success. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I had a quick look on Ancestry.com and found a military record I suspect is the correct James F. Courtney. Here are some of the details from that record
