A USN LDS? I need help finding owners family
I am trying to find a family member to return this too.
I have a name, Eugene Russell Harkness,a 7 digit number, 554-49-66, (which I would like to know how to trace).The bottom line isA USN LDS-I know that USN is US Navy but would like to know about the rest.
Among the odds and ends (see below) I found a dog tag along with a small round pin that has since been misplaced. It was a gold star on a maroon background with a date I believe to have been in the 40's or 50's.The pin was about the size of a dime.Any info is appreciated.
I have obtained a dog-tag from an auction house in Florida.My friend owns the auction and can only say that it was part of an estate purchase that they made.I found it in a round oriental padded "jewelry case" at least that is what I believe it to be.
On another note, a friend once borrowed the dog-tag and wore it as a piece of jewelry one day.Would you find this offensive being that you have served (and suffered perhaps) while in the military.
Thank you in advance
