I found this dogtag in Belgium and i have already contact with the daughter. She doesn't know much about what John starchevic did during the war. I promised her to do some research. She'd like to know what division he fought. and where exactly he  had been during the war.

There's a brick with William J. Starcevich's name on it located at this place.

The "AA" patch on the jacket is "U.S. Army Anti Aircraft Command".
