Lost WWII dog tags returned to family at VAFB

A special gift will return to a Vandenberg airman for the holidays.

Staff Sergeant Jason Riggs will receive his great uncle's lost dog tags from World War II.

They were found 5,500 miles away in France.

A French bed and breakfast owner received the tags from a friend who found them in an attic.

After a two year search, they're being returned to Staff Sgt. Riggs on behalf of the French people during a ceremony at Vandenberg.
