Wow, people are still finding dog tags. Isn't that amazing? All these years later...

Did you try looking them up here yet, to start?

Hi Vee, i found enlistment records for 2 of them & correct serial # for Mr LuBrano.
on Mr Miller, records show 6 men named Russell C Miller from Pennsylvania.
WWII Memorial Registry has no helpful info.
