Veteran reunited with dog tag he lost in World War II

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A World War II veteran from Bismarck has been reunited with a dog tag he lost in New Guinea about 75 years ago.

Ninety-seven-year-old Ed Boger has the dog tag back thanks to a stranger who found it while digging a hole for a school flagpole in Lemieng, Papua New Guinea. The Bismarck Tribune says Kenneth Muo knew that only American soldiers wore dog tags and felt the need to return it. So he posted his find on World War II Facebook groups and years later made contact with Ed’s son, Charles Boger.

He says his dad got all choked up and emotional when the tag came in the mail. Muo wrote a letter saying he was proud to be able to return it to Boger.
