My mother was in the Army and afterwards she & my dad had a second hand shop. She saved a couple of boxes full of military ribbons, medals, dog tags, etc. I don't know where some of them came from.I have a dog tag for a Gideon T. Motley.His next of kin, which I think is probably his father, is listed as Clay Walton Motley, Arnett Rd., Danville, VA.
If a descendant of this family is interested in receiving the dog tag, I'd be more than happy to send it.I tried contacting the various VFWs in the area and they didn't even get back to me. In this day and age, they probably thought it was some kind of scam.I know if someone had a piece of my family history, I'd appreciate getting it back.
