Dog Tag

This is one of hubby’s valuable possessions in the military. He gave it to me a couple of months ago after his retirement from the Air Force. A dog tag is the informal name for the identification tags worn by military personnel. The tag is primarily used for the identification of dead and wounded along with providing religious preference and essential basic medical information for the treatment of the latter, such as blood type and history of inoculations.

I'm linking this entry to ABC Wednesday, letter D.

oh, i just got one minted at my school fest for fun. Good to know the real purpose. Still never understood, why is it called Dog tag when it is used for humans.

What a great choice for D! Hmmm. I haven't a clue where my husbands dog tags are.

Dog tags are the identity bracelets of all military personnel of the US Armed Forces. Great that your hubby gave them to you after his retirement. They have lots of sentimental value to him. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
