DISTINCTIVE UNIT INSIGNIA / Re: The Institute of Heraldry Motto Catalog

By now I assume that some folks that have read this have attempted to access the web page. It is unfortunate to report that TIOH web page has been down for some time now due to a cyber attack on their site. They are continuing to repair this web site and the Center of Military History has been keeping abreast of this situation and it hopes to have the site up and running again very soon.

As of November 3, 2018 this is what information I have to share..

I will keep you posted if something changes,,

ID SECTION / WWI Killed in Action US Dog Tag
« Last post by Masonk on October 29, 2018, 12:28:45 PM »
This dog tag was included in a group of items belonging to a father and son who served in WWI and WWII respectively.

I haven't been able to make any connection to either individual, so not sure how it came to be included with those items.

Dog tag is named to Cpl, Ora C Dean, Co. H, 18th Infantry, 1st Division. Not much information online. I was able to confirm Pvt. Dean unfortunately never made it back stateside alive after his WWI service.

According to his headstone, he died October 22nd 1918. His body was sent home aboard the USAT Wheaton, a ship that carried home many WWI deceased. Dean arrived home December 15th, 1920.

I can only surmise he was buried in a temporary cemetery overseas, and later repatriated.
