I have been contacted by someone, through my web site(charleboiseries.ca), who has found dog tags for RF Charlebois in his brother's effects. His brother past away in 1944 in a naval hospital. He tells me his brother was wounded in the battle of Bougainville, which is probably a clue to RF Charlebois' identification.
The dog tags read as follows:
Charlebois, R F Type A 443753C T. 9/42 USMCR
I am trying to find out specifically who this RF Charlebois might be but without much success. I have consulted every US government database I could find and ancestry.com to no avail. Ideally, my untimate goal would be to convince this gentleman to return these dog tags to the family.
