What began with the discovery of some World War II dog tags in the West Desert has led a Top of Utah father/son duo to a startling mystery, a historical investigation — and a new long-distance friend.
It all began when Tim L. Kutz, 58, of Clearfield, was working with the military at an airfield near Wendover. His manager found the dog tags and showed them to Kutz.
“It looked like an Army Air Corps dog tag. It had an ‘H’ for religion,” Kutz said. “I didn’t know what that meant and I was curious.”
Kutz worked in the military bomb squad for 20 years and is now a contracted training program analyst for the Threat Management Group. But Kutz is also a history buff.
