I would like to find a home for the attached dog tag. My father ran a wrecker service in DeKalb, Illinois and found this in a car many years ago. It is for Earl George Gregory.After receiving Sue's email I did some research. The first thing I noticed was that this was a Navy ID Tag (USN on the tag)
A search on Ancestry.com found this record for Earl:
Earl George Gregory
Service Info.: CWT US NAVY WORLD WAR II
Birth Date:18 Dec 1916
Death Date:11 Jun 1990
Cemetery Address:Main St Wayne City, IL 62895
Find-A-Grave shows his wife as Anna, buried with him.
