My daughter was walking on the beach near Nice, France and found a WW II dog tag with the name of Arthur Cohen. The tag is very beat up and about 1/3 of it is broken off and missing. There is a partial service number ending 181206 and blood type A.
From what we can ell, there were two Arthur Cohens from that region who enlisted at about the same time, one was born in 1913 and the other in 1921. They were both single when they enlisted. I have found from NARA records available online that the Arthur Cohen we are looking for was born in 1913. Service #31181206.
So far we have found out that Arthur enlisted in Providence, Rhode Island in 1942. That's all we know. Any idea of where to go from here? If it would be of any sentimental or historical value to his descendants we would be happy to correspond and send it to them.This is Case #12 and I hope my readers will respond with their usual enthusiasm and great sleuthing skills. Let's send another dog tag home to family.
