“Finders, Keepers!”

Today’s prompt was, “What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever found (and kept)?” Here’s my response and the pic I selected to illustrate it. ;o) (Note — these are not his dogtags — just a representational stock image.)

Dog Tags 2

My step-grandfather was a aircraft gunner, and a long time after my mother’s dementia kicked into high gear and she moved into a nursing home, I was cleaning up some papers of hers when I ran across his dog tags. I cherish them. He was a quiet, wiry little man who lived his whole life in humility and service to others. I didn’t really understand or appreciate who he was for many years, but I do now.
