TOP invites you to help this cause by taking time to go through our list. We understand there are many names on the database; as we have retrieved many personal effects and dog tags since 1998. However, one of these names may be a buddy you served with, friend, neighbor, relative, co-worker or someone you know of in your community. . . or, if you served in Vietnam, perhaps your name is on the list!
Numerous tags have been returned after someone accidentally discovered a familiar name while surfing the Internet on the TOP web site.
Please click here to access a list of names, which includes last-first-middle names, branch of service and status of each personal effect or dog tag:
Please also periodically re-check the list, as it changes to reflect personal effects status and recent additions & finds.
We thank all those who help TOP (Tours Of Peace) Vietnam Veterans do this worthy detective work. We hope someone you know will benefit from your efforts to scrutinize the list.
