Good afternoon. I have a question I wondered if you could help me with. In 1973 I was using a metal detector on the campus of the University of Kentucky. I unearthed a set of dog tags for Robt G Campbell of Alcoa, TN. I have held on to them ever since and recently came across them again and wondered if there might be any family that would be interested in receiving them. From information on your site, it appears Mr. Campbell died and was buried in Luxembourg in 1945. I didn’t know if you might have information as to whether any of his family may still be in the Alcoa TN area as I will actually be going through the area on February 27th.
Thanks for anything you may be able to share concerning this.
