Go Up Go Down

About 3 years ago I was hunting a WWII training base and found this dogtag and St Christopher pendant attacted to it.  I did some research and found out the man, Charles J. Sweeney, was a member of the Red Raiders and was shot down on the B-24 Temptation on the first daylight bombing raid on the Phillipeans. I have tried to find some relatives but was unsuccessful.
Here a link

go to table of contents at bottom, then B-24, then scroll down a little ways to Temptation.  He was a private.
Just wanted to share the story.

Thanks for sharing the story.  Putting a human face with a find tends to make it even more special than it was before.
