What should be printed on military dog tags?

In the 1990s, the U.S. Army stopped using the term dog tags, replacing it with the designation ID tags.

A persistent rumor is that debossed (imprinted with stamped in letters) dog tags were issued from World War II till the end of the Vietnam War and that currently the U.S. Armed Forces is issuing embossed (imprinted with raised letters) dog tags. In actuality, the U.S. Armed Forces issues dog tags with both types of imprinting, depending on the machine used at a given facility. The military issued 95% of their identification tags up until recently (within the past 10 years) with debossed text.

The U.S. Armed Forces typically carry two identical oval dog tags containing:

U.S. Air Force (Format 1)
  • Last name, first name, middle initial
  • Social Security number, followed by "AF" indicating branch of service
  • Blood Group
  • "blank"
  • Religion
U.S. Air Force (Format 2)
  • Last name
  • First name and middle initial
  • Social Security number, followed by "AF" indicating branch of service
  • Blood Group
  • Religion
U.S. Marine Corps
  • Last name
  • First and middle initials and suffix; blood group
  • Social Security number with no dashes and no spaces
  • Branch ("USMC"); Gas mask size (S small, M medium, L large)
  • Religious preference, or medical allergy if red medical tag
U.S. Navy
  • Last name, first name, middle initial
  • Social Security number with no dashes or spaces followed immediately by "USN", space, blood group
  • Religion
U.S. Army
  • Last name
  • First name, middle initial
  • Social Security number
  • Blood type
  • Religion
U.S. Coast Guard
  • Last name, first name, middle initial
  • Social Security number, no dashes or spaces, followed immediately by branch (i.e., 123456789USCG)
  • Blood group
  • Religion

Religious designation

During World War II, a dog tag could indicate only one of three religions through the inclusion of one letter: "P" for Protestant, "C" for Catholic, or "H" for Jewish (from the word, "Hebrew"),[13] or (according to at least one source) "NO" to indicate no religious preference. Army regulations (606-5) soon included X and Y in addition to P,C, and H: the X indicating any religion not included in the first three, and the Y indicating either no religion or a choice not to list religion. By the time of the Vietnam War, some IDs spelled out the broad religious choices such as PROTESTANT and CATHOLIC, rather than using initials, and also began to show individual denominations such as "METHODIST" or "BAPTIST." Tags did vary by service, however, such as the use of "CATH," not "CATHOLIC" on some Navy tags. For those with no religious affiliation and those who chose not to list an affiliation, either the space for religion was left blank or the words "NO PREFERENCE" or "NO RELIGIOUS PREF" were included.[16]

Although American dog tags include the recipient's religion as a way of ensuring that religious needs will be met, some personnel have them reissued without religious affiliation listed keep two sets, one with the designation and one without of fear that identification as a member of a particular religion could increase the danger to their welfare or their lives if they fell into enemy hands. Some Jewish personnel avoided flying over German lines during WWII with ID tags that indicated their religion, and some Jewish personnel avoid the religious designation today out of concern that they could be captured by extremists who are anti-Semitic. Additionally, when American troops were first sent to Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War there were allegations that some U.S. military authorities were pressuring Jewish military personnel to avoid listing their religions on their ID tags.

What does a dog tag set consist of?

The dog tag set consist of 6 items. 2 indent stamped notched stainless steel tags, 1 stainless steel 24" chain, 1 stainless steel duplicate 4" chain and 2 black dog tag silencers. This dog tag set is the norm but dog tags, chains and dog tag silencers can be found in a variety of colors for personalization.

What is the main purpose of dog tags for military use?

The main purpose of dog tags for military use is to identify casualties. 1 of the 2 dog tags stay with the remains of the soldier and are not removed except in cases of the need to temporarily inter the soldier. If only one tag is found with the fallen soldier an identical dog tag is than created. If the soldier is found with both tags missing, two tags which indicate unidentified.

Do dog tags from different country militaries all look alike?

No, not all countries military dog tags look alike. The dog tags can differ in size, color, material used, information on dog tag and much more. The US Military dog tag is an oval shape that is measured 2" x 1" x 1/16". The 24" chain has 365 ball links and the 4" chain has 52 ball links. The chains became useful for prisoners of war as a capture time device. The prisoner of war will break off one bead from the large chain for each day he was kept captured and 1 ball link from the short chain for each week. The chains allowed the prisoner to count up to 1 year of capture time.

What are the specifications of the US Military dog tag?

The US military chain issued has to be 2.5mm, 24??neck chain and 1, 2.5mm, 4??duplicate chain. The ball chains can be upgraded to 3 mm diameter by the soldier if he chooses. The chains diameter has to fall between 2.5mm and 3mm, anything oven or under is unauthorized due to risk of breakage or inability to recover duplicate chain.

How are dog tags imprinted?

Dog tags are typically imprinted in 2 different ways; they are either embossed or indented. Emboss is a newer style of imprinting dog tags in which the letters are raised. The emboss imprint style was adopted by the US military in the 1980s. Today more than 50% of dog tags issued by the US Military are imprinted in an emboss style, depending on the equipment available on each base. The indent style on dog tags is considered the vintage style, which the letters are sunken into the dog tag. During the Second World War, Korean War and the Vietnam War the indent style dog tag was solely used up until the 1980s. Since the 1980's till present, dog tag lettering can be found in both forms.

What is imprinted on a dog tag?

For a member serving the US Military the following information can be found on their dog tag. Their name (last name, first name middle initial), social security number, blood type, military branch and religion are typically imprinted on the dog tag. Each branch of the US Military may come in a different format but all the same information can be found.

Can I get a dog tag imprinted even if I didn't serve in the US Military?

Yes, you can get a dog tag imprinted even if you aren't or haven't served in any branch of the US Military. Imprinted dog tags are a common novelty good and fashion accessory widely worn around the world.
