Hi all

I live in England and last week visited France,i visit each year with some friends , we are interested in the 1st and 2nd world war sites. While in a tiny privately owned museum in a little village called Romagne (which is next door to the American cemetary) i came across a dog tag with the inscription "Darrell Youngberg. 2355559. Pte".

I have just recieved a response from the Montana section as follows
