          Thank you so much for contacting History Hub about the dog tags you found. 


          According to The American War Library, found dog tags aren't the property of the finder or the person identified on the tags. The dog tags still belong to the U.S. government. By law, all found military items must be immediately mailed to the Secretary of Defense.

          • Write on a piece of paper where you found the tags, the date you found the tags, your full name and contact information.
          • Place the letter and dog tags into an envelope.
          • Seal the envelope and address it to the Secretary of Defense. The address is: 1400 Defense Pentagon Washington, DC 20301-1400
          • Take the envelope to the Post Office to be weighed so you can pay the postage and mail it.


          Thank you and best of luck to you!
