Tolik, I know exactly what you are talking about there. Anonymous people who will never be remembered, who had hopes and dreams and relationships that meant something at the time. I heard (rightly or wrongly) that dog-tags were first devised and sold to soldiers during the American civil war so that at least their bodies wouldn’t be anonymous and prevent that nobody would ever know know what became of them.

Yosemite Sam: "Oh yeah? Well I speak LOUD! and I carry a BIGGER stick! and I use it, too!" BAM!
