Another American Soldier's ID Tag Found: Samuel Loftus

John recently sent this note to Olive Tree Genealogy blog.

I have found, in west Norfolk UK, a WW2 US dog tag; the details are as follows:

39462452 T43

BOX 494

The letters A C also appear each side of the drlled hole.

A picture of the dog tag is on John's blog  The Two Terriers

Can anybody help return the tag to the family? My readers have had great success with helping to return Dog Tags to soldiers' families. Help is needed with Samuel Loftus now.

Not sure if you already got a response, but using GenealogyBank to find an obituary, I found that his mother's name was Lucy and his children are listed. Using, I found locations for the children which I will email privately.
