A military dog tag and small Navy fighter squadron emblem that belonged to a Blue Angels pilot have turned up on an Alabama beach where he was killed in a crash a half-century ago.

It's a discovery full of coincidences.

Debbie Harris found the artifacts near her Fort Morgan, Ala., home. Her search for information about the pilot, Cmdr. Robert N. Glasgow, took her to the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola and it's director, Bob Rasmussen.

He knew what happened because he was flying with Glasgow when he crashed.

Harris found the squadron emblem in October -- the same month as the crash 50 years ago in 1958. She found the dog tag on Feb. 17 -- Glasgow's birthday. He was born on that date in 1922.
