  1. OK, so I went to a show today and spent too much money. I bought another group of "firsts" as well, and could use some help. Bought some dog tags. I'd like to figure out how to read dog tags better so I can figure out about what time frame they are from and... well, yeah, I'd like to maybe figure out who the people are/were who wore them.
