Dog Tag Return
Major Tim Dekryger, USMC (Retired)
Tim Dekryger and his father Bill were both combat Marines.
So, when on a trip to Vietnam they found weathered dog tags in a stall in Hue, they recognized their importance and collected as many as possible.
Two sets of those tags belonged to Marines we lost in the DMZ: Lance Corporal Lancaster Brown-Bey and Lance Corporal Clifton Spiller.
Concluding our Remembrance ceremony, we brought the dog tags of our fallen brothers home.
Read the story of the Dekrygers' dog tag recovery operation next.
