TSFA helps reunite WWII GI John W Sackett's dog-tag with his family

from Toledo Blade
Sergeant John W Sackett's WWII dog-tag, found by Kelly Grace at an old U.S. army base near Brisbane, Australia, has been reunited with John's family in Michigan.

Kelly wrote to Sackett Family Association historian Thurmon King who posted her message on the Sackett mailing list. Within hours, Association member Sue Sackett had identified the tag as belonging to her late husband's uncle, who she knew had lived in Adrian, Michigan, during the war.

The tag, now a much-treasured reminder of their late father, is in the possession of John Sackett's daughters, Mary Hammond, Pam Thacker, and Kathy Rollison.

The full story and pictures appear in the Toledo Blade.

John William Sackett's record is in Thurmon King's database.
