    Old and battered dog tags found in a cave in the South Pacific may crack a 70-year-old mystery.
    The dog tags are those of a 31-year-old Army infantryman from New York named Bernard Gavrin. He was reported missing in action during the battle of Saipan in World War II and never found.


    His 81-year-old nephew David Rogers, of West Delray, Fla., said the family never knew what happened.
    "I am the only living relative to have known my Uncle Bernie," Rogers told the Sun-Sentinel in the paper's Saturday editions. "Words cannot do justice to the shock this news left me with."
    He was 12 when his grandmother got the tragic news that her son was MIA.
