Charlie Moore Dog Tag Returned
On Christmas, Pacific Wrecks helped to return a dog tag found in New Guinea to the grateful family of Charlie H. Moore. Learn about Moore's life, service with the 38th Bomb Group and the October 16, 1943 mission when he went missing in action (MIA) aboard B-25D "Lucky Star" 41-30183. His dog tag was either dropped or discarded at his home airfield.
Moore's dog tag was found by Henry Mayer at the airfield where his unit was based. In 2004, tag was listed on Pacific Wrecks in hopes of locating his family, who saw the page in November 2011. Free of charge, the dog tag was returned to his grandson, Seth Moore who gave the tag to his father, Chuck on Christmas morning.
