Wing Commander Matt Cornish, officer commanding support wing at RAF Honington, and U.S. Air Force Col. Derek Salmi, 100th Operations Group commander, pose in front of the 388th Bombardment Group, 8th Air Force memorial with a framed World War II U.S. Army Air Forces dog tag that was found while metal detecting on the former RAF Knettishall grounds near Knettishall, England, Aug. 12, 2016. This repatriation of the U.S. service member's dog tag marked the official receipt from the RAF to the U.S. Air Force on behalf of the surviving service member who was assigned to the 388th BG and 8th AF, and is currently living in Louisiana. Following this ceremony, the dog tag will be transported to the 8th AF in Louisiana where it can then be officially presented to its rightful owner. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Master Sgt.
