World War II veteran's dog tag returns to Michigan

Updated: Tuesday, August 5, 2014

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - Relatives of a Michigan World War II veteran will receive his dog tag found in the Netherlands 70 years after his deployment.
    
The Lansing State Journal reports Monday that 66-year-old Piet van Schuppen of Gelderland, the Netherlands, is sending the dog tag of Phillip Nichols to his cousin in Battle Creek. The Lansing veteran and former Oldsmobile employee died in 2003.
    
Nichols went to the Netherlands in 1944 with the U.S. Army after fighting in Normandy on D-Day. He was 19 and earned a Silver Star while battling German forces.
    
Nichols' cousin, Herb Nichols, will accept the dog tag that van Schuppen found with a metal detector in 2007.
    
Herb Nichols says getting the tag is a miracle. He says he wishes his cousin were alive to receive it.
