Ohio boy, 9, uses WWII dog tags to find veteran's family

A 9-year-old Ohio boy who came by some World War II military dog tags plans to present them to the soldier’s family on Veterans Day.

Lenny Aydemir of the Cleveland suburb of Medina was given the dog tags by an uncle visiting from France last summer. He wondered about the owner — Jack B. Robbins from Wichita Falls, Texas — and set out trying to find him.

It turned out that Robbins was shot down over France in 1944 and spent 10 months in a German prison camp. He died in 1969.

WEWS-TV reports that the third-grader will give a presentation on Robbins’ life at his school on Monday. Then he’ll hand over the dog tags to Robbins’ relatives who are flying in for an afternoon ceremony.
