A Vietnam War veteran who lost his dog tags decades ago finally has them back. Denis Kostendader lost his military ID tags while serving as a Marine in 1967 and thought he’d never see them again.

But the Vietnamese government recently found them and sent them back to the U.S. They’ve now been reunited with Kostendader, who says, “It’s kind of amazing, after all these years.”

Now that he has his dog tags back, they’ll go along with his military awards, a Silver Star and four Purple Hearts.
