    All Soldiers should be respected where they fall, no matter of the nationality. A chance should also be given to their home country to recover the body, examine possible sources of DNA and hopefully inform the family of the fallen.

      Hello Richard,

      Thank you for comment. As you know, we are bloggers, but we also do such activity you have mentioned in your comment. We are a part of history club, which idea is to find fallen soldiers and to help identify them and make connection with their relatives. We are connected with VolksBund in Germany (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_War_Graves_Commission), for last years we’ve found more than 1000 fallen soldiers from both sides. Some of them (no more than 20%) was sent back home to their relatives, but almost 80% still stay unnamed. We have a big cemetery for soldiers, but problem is we don’t have any support from government. Everything is financed only by ourselves, club members. So it is.

    Was this soldier identified? Especially with his ID disk? And an American .45 cal on him? I wish I could go on some of these searches. But only for recovery efforts. No interests in relic hunting at all. May our nation’s forever love in peace…..
