I'm trying to get an obituary from the Oakland Public Library for a WWII veteran named Arthur Cohen who died in Oakland on July 6, 1972. He is buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, CA. Here is his find a grave index: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Co...
;. If he turns out to be the veteran I am looking for, (his CA Death index indicated that he was born in RI, so I'm pretty sure he's the man I'm seeking) born in Rhode Island in 1913 according to his enlistment record, then his WWII dog tag was found on a beach near Nice, France. I'm helping the person who found it to return it, free of charge, to his family. I'd like to try to get him family contact information so he can send it back to Arthur Cohen's family in time for the holidays and the library won't help me unless I mail in a request. If there is anyone on this list who can help with this request, that would be wonderful. Or perhaps you recognize the name or can put me in contact with the family? Sincerely,
