WWII Dog Tags Returned

The U.S. Army dog tags were lost in 1944 and were found by Anne-Marie Crespo, a resident of Istres, who was digging in her garden in 2001. The event, which was held as a surprise for Wilkins, 90, also marked the 68th anniversary of V-E Day, the end of World War II in Europe. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
