Hello everyone
After having managed to obtain serious information to you on the tag of James Vernon Rodier I research information on these two paratroopers of the 505th pir and more particularly on Gerald Liles (I find absulently nothing !!)
thank you for your help and sorry for my bad english

Thanks Fred

These tags look very suspect to me. Can you provide better photos of them up close?

Hello Kim yes, found on the side of Renuamont in France
For information I made contact with the family of James Vernon Rodier and Carl Green but for now no answer !!! I hope to have because I have a photo of James Vernon Rodier who is next to a painting where he put his badgesand more but not the tags!

How about some close ups of those tags? They look to have been on the same machine...
