I'm looking at my old USMC issue tags from the early 80's. As follows by line; 1) Last name 2) first and last initial (with periods ex;R.N.) 3) SSN followed by blood type 4)service branch(USMC) followed by gas mask size.(M for medium) 5) religious affiliation All spelling is in caps.

I still have my set from Vietnam which didn't use the SSN (used: XXX XX XX). When I left service in 1976 it was: Name, SSN, Blood Type, Branch of Service and Religion. MY older ones are notched so if KIA I think they could hold it in place with your teeth?

That's strange: I went in the service in 1956 and my "Dog Tag" number was: 123 45 67 - somewhere along the line I was issued new ones with the SSN. What's up???

all that crap and get two sets,,,,,,,they are handy for luggage ID(these days without ssan) and if you are expecting a risky weekend, put one in the laces of each boot. That way if they find some parts they can ID you.

Where can you order tags these days?

AUST - nationality 123456 - regimental number SMITH JD - name and init's RC - religion A POS - blood group Do I wear 'em, really, honestly, only in the field. The Australian 'identity discs' are black, made of a brass type material, one hexagon shaped, and one round. Same as UK type in WW2, but as I said black brass, not the brownish red and green colours of the 'fibre' ones of WW2.
