Dog tags found in Italy - T J McIntyre

Recommended Posts

Received this letter from an Italian forum (Enrico's). Let's see what we can do to help him. :pdt12:

 

 

Hello Marion,

 

I read your presentation on the Italian forum of Enrico.

 

My name is Maurizio, and I am the President of the Association: "Historical Research Group (www.grupporicerchestoriche.it)".

 

I decided to send you this mail, because some years we are looking for relatives of an American soldier, we found the dog tags in the Manziana (Rome).

Our desire would be to hand over to the relatives of military dog tags, of course, free!!

 

I'm enclosing a photo of the dog tags.

Can you help??

 

thanks

Maurizio

 

P. S.

Sorry for any spelling errors, but are forced to use Google translator

Hello everyone,

I wanted to give some more information on this dog tags.

TJMcintyre, maybe it was part of a crew of a tank.

We found a few years ago 5 dog tags, 4 returned to relatives and this has not.

The military is back at home, died after the war and is buried in one of the cemeteries in NY

One of our employees told us that he found his son, but he did not want the dog tags.

If you manage to find other relatives well, otherwise we can also give the dog tags in a museum of his regiment.

I hope I did understand.

Sometimes it is so hard to believe. I can't imagine NOT wanting my dad's dog tags. That is so sad! :armata_PDT_23:

 

I hope we can find someone else, or as you said, they will go to the museum, where they will be treasured forever. Thank you!

 

Ciao

I know! ISn't that crazy! I'd want anything associated with my grandfather - especially something that just shows up out of the blue like that. Very strange. Of course there a lot of things people do that I find very strange. . .

Hello,

I enclose some research we've done on the military.

Military roster: http://aad.archives.gov/aad/record-detail.jsp?dt=893&mtch=1&cat=all&tf=F&q=32007348&bc=sb&rpp=10&pg=1&rid=2685077

 

Burial data:http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=mcintyre&GSfn=thomas&GSmn=j&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=4059331&df=all&

 

And what we found on Roe Margaret, sister of the soldier:

Margaret Jane Roe

The Hour - Norwalk, CT

 

Margaret Jane Roe, age 92 formerly of the Bronx, NY, and the beloved wife of the late Raymond Roe, passed away on Monday, January 22, 2007. Margaret was born in New York City in 1914 to the late William and Margaret McIntyre. She was a member of St. Margaret's Church in Riverdale, NY. She is survived by her loving and devoted children, Kenneth Roe of Fairfield, Raymond Roe of Muttontown, NY, Jane Thomas of Ridgefield, and Marjorie Hough of Thornton, CO. She will also be missed by her nine cherished grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, Margaret was preceded in death by her brothers, William and Thomas McIntyre. Friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday January 27, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. directly at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Fairfield. Burial will follow at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Valhalla, NY. Friends may greet the family from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, January 26, 2007 at the SHAUGHNESSEY-BANKS FUNERAL HOME 50 Reef Rd. in Fairfield.

 

Is there anyone N.Y. you might try contacting the children of Margaret, or find an address, or an e-mail so I try to contact them?

Thanks

Maurizio

P.S. also happened in Italy that a son did not want the dog tags of his father, even knowing that we were going 500 km to bring the dog tags for FREE!!

I am really tied up at the moment with projects, so really don't have much time to do research and contact anyone at the moment. However later I could possibly do this for you. Maybe someone else on the forum could pick up this task.

 

Maybe one of the children or grandchildren will see this in the interim, via a Google search.

 

Sorry I can't help out, but have my hands in so many other things right now.

Hello,

after a long time I update the history of dog tags.

We wrote to several newspapers as well as the mayors of the cities where they live the grandchildren of the military.

We also wrote to Shaughnessey Banks Funeral Home, because we hoped that they knew a relative.

At the end of it all we were informed that they had managed to track down two relatives, but we both do not want the dog tags because they already have!!

Now, unfortunately, we have to start all over again, maybe trying the other brother of the soldier.

As always, if anyone has any advice ... :help: :help:

I am a bit confused about the relatives saying they already have the dog tags, for there is usually only one set. How can both of them (and you) all have the dog tags?

 

I am stymied that the relatives would turn you down, but I guess nothing really surprises me anymore about people. If someone had something of my father's from the war, you can bet I'd be asking for it and very thankful and grateful.

 

I know it's frustrating for you, but it would appear the relatives are not interested, so my advice would be do donate the tags to the Army Corps of Engineers. If you would like help with this, now of in the future, please let me know. It's something to consider.
