Army on the Rio Grande

Hello All, been a while...
Well, unexpected digging site... went over with Benson, lil Ben, and my buddy Q, to do a lil digging yesterday.
Got there slightly before the rain and then got drenched!
Any way, my firs find within 10 minutes was a WWI era Army Button.  It has "R LIEBMANN MFG CO" on the back which narrowed it down to WWI.

A few minutes later, I got a quarter hit.  A quick plug later and out came a half dollar sized aluminum junction box cut out. Or so, I thought.

It reads: John McKeever USA
It has this number on the reverse:  440438
We figured it out to be a WWI era dog tag!
If anyone has a better idea let me know...
Gonna do some research on the person...
