    A veteran of WWII who lost his dogtags in France during WWII gets them back. Quite an amazing story.

    That is an interesting story, and there are fewer and fewer WW2 veterans still among us, everyday. I'm glad to see many are doing video archiving of their stories...eventually they will exist only in memory.
