Here is the email for Case No. 15, Lester A. Lorfing
My husband found a US dog tag in our garden. We live on Lake Garda Italy. I gave the dog tag to my brother, who lives in the UK. The name is Lester A Lorfing and the serial no. is 38250774 T43 A PMy wonderful readers have a terrific track record in solving these lost and found Dog ID Tags and I'm hoping we can all jump in to this case and send Lester's Dog Tag home.
I believe he died in 1999 in Texas, Wharton County.
Please post your findings and ideas in the comment section of this blog post but remember if you have private information on living individuals (such as phone numbers or addresses) to send it privately to me at olivetreegenealogyATgmail.com
I did a bit of research already and found the marriage record of Lester and Inez Hoegemeyer in Texas in 1946 which led me to Inez Lorfing's online obituary. There is a great deal of information in this which may help with finding their sons.
We could also trace Lester's siblings and their children in case the sons cannot be found or have no interest in Lester's WW2 Dog tags.
