Dog_TagDog tags is a piece of plaque around your neck with embossed data of the person who wears it. His task was to enable the identification of a soldier who died or was seriously injured. The most common figures that were included on this plate are:


1.Name and Surname

2.Soldier Number

3.Miltary Unit

4.Blood Group



Lately, dog tags more often go from military to civilian areas. They begin to be treated as a mere decorative element. Many people wanting to keep the “military” and “utility” nature of the dog tag, affix your personal information in the hope that it may be useful to the emergency services. This action is often not only pointless (personal data of the patient is the last thing they worry about rescue units to provide assistance at the time), but it can be downright harmful. Not once, not twice met with people who have placed on his dogtag data such as:


1.Name and Surname


3.Security Number

4.Blood Group


I missed this statement still only a PIN to their credit card. In case of loss / theft of such Immortelle, our private data can get to the “black-market” circuit and be used for example in the production of forged identity cards. Placing blood group also does not make sense (beyond the aesthetic value), because no doctor will give blood without making the crossword. Equally worthless are all kinds of information cards issued by the blood centers. Before any transfusion must be carried out crossing the blood to determine the appropriate group. Much more help services when put on nieśmiertelniku number of ICE (in case emergency). This is the telephone number of the person to be contacted in case of an accident. Sam I wear a dog tag, which is stamped information:


1.Jon Snow

2.ICE Number

3.Phone Number 1

4.Phone Number 2


Well to put at least two numbers for two different people. Having carry such a number (whether minted on nieśmiertelniku whether as a suitable card in your wallet), you can quickly determine our identity and to inform the family if we were involved in some unfortunate event. Similarly, you can put information on certain diseases, such as diabetes or epilepsy (although mostly these people wear special bracelets).

The inscriptions on the brand are substantially identical. Nevertheless, there are a number of minor differences. For example, the Air Force has engraved usually the first and last name, social security number, blood type and religion. These different arrangements can be selected. The US Navy uses the same information in yet another arrangement, and the US Army has its own requirements regarding the appearance of the brand.


From identifying the fashion accessory


For members of the military dog tags as it may seem incredible: From the earlier vital appendage of the soldiers now a fashion accessory for young people has become. Although the US brand recognition is still used in the global operations of the US military, young people use the brand today in order to upgrade their wardrobe a little. This, however, is done entirely with a certain background. Many young people want to be understood so little stronger and almost militant touch, but at least they want to show fashion sense and make the membership of a particular class outwardly apparent.  You can ask the dog tag is then available for their religion, their faith, or even the name of your favorite music or as an expression of inner conviction and life.

The US Dog Tag From the dog tag for fashion accessory…

January 2nd, 2015
by andrzej



She has a remarkable development behind it: the US brand recognition. Colloquially referred to as “dog tag”, which dog tag identification fallen soldiers is a priority. For this purpose, it contains various engraved details that allow unambiguous identification of the dead soldiers. These data vary from country to country, but generally they all involve civil registration number, a country code and the blood group. Stock earlier for the soldiers a duty to support the identification tag when they are on duty, the brand recognition has become rather fashionable accessory for young people. Provided with individual engraving, it adapts to sporty and casual clothing and in adolescents and young at heart extremely popular as a piece of jewelry.


The purpose of the US Dog Tag


In American parlance called “Dog Tag”, similar to the US brand recognition at first glance is actually a dog tag. It is worn by members of the US military of all units and is used to identify dead and wounded soldiers. For this purpose, it contains important medical information, but also information on religious affiliation.

Manufacture of stainless material

US Dog Tags are usually made of aluminum or stainless steel, to remain stable and readable even in the most adverse wind and weather. In times of war – if high quality metals were no longer available – however, they were made of any metal that was somehow available. The brand is still worn with the US Military in combination with a red trailer if the soldier has a medical condition that makes a specific medical treatment. This can be seen at a glance that a particular treatment is prescribed in this wounded member of the military.  Usually the brand recognition of the US military as well as many other brands of two components, which fit together seamlessly. While half remains on the body of the fallen or wounded soldiers, the other half of his unit or his army is passed. In order to recognize the wounded or killed is ensured.


The History of the Dog Tag


American Civil War from 1861 to 1865 [2] had first mounted soldiers name and home address on paper in their jackets and coats. Alternatively, belts and other parts of the uniform with these data were labeled. The purpose was to let the survivors in the event of the case to send a message and be even easier to identify. But soon realized resourceful manufacturers the potential for this market and started to produce first pins on which the name and unit of soldiers were engraved. Often, these needles were provided with an eagle or similar heraldic animals and carried slogans such as “War for the Union” or “Liberty, Union and Equality”. The name of the soldier was engraved, his unit, and sometimes even the list of battles in which he participated. Also in World War came the US Dog Tag used. On 20 December 1906 [1], the production of dog tags for the US Army has been approved for the first time. It consisted of aluminum, the size of a half dollar piece and was correspondingly thick, and it contained the name, rank and regiment of the wearer. You always had to be worn if the soldier was on duty or was in uniform. As of 1913, the US dog tags were still optional in 1917 [3] it was in the US Army for duty to help each use.  In 1916 the design was changed. From that point on was the brand of two parts. One of the two parts was worn on the body, the other remained with the person who should be responsible in case of problems for the funeral. In 1918, [1] then a number system was introduced, which ensured that the name and serial number were engraved.  While the identification tag was first worn during World War II only by the US Navy, followed after the Second World War, the US Army and the Air Force. Today, a uniform standard is introduced, after wearing all the pillars of the American military identical trademarks with the same content.  A peculiarity comes to religion. Even in the Second World War was the use of single letters for religions “Protestant,” “Roman Catholic” and “Jewish” in use, as could be shown that it was associated with any religion. It was not until the Vietnam War, the membership was extended to other religious groups, so that from this point on additional religions could be printed. Just the religion was often but not specified, it was feared but a corpse desecration or poor medical treatment if you fell with a particular religion into the wrong hands. As important as belonging to a particular religious group it was so, so much had reason to conceal it, not to be abused because of religion.  In 1969, the Social Security number, which was added to the data immediately followed. A special feature was recorded later in the Vietnam War. Here is a small rubber coated plate between the dog tag was added, was that when walking or moving to hear any metallic noise. So could you be sure not to be heard by the enemy as fast.  A tradition has come to be until today: Fallen soldier honored at her funeral bier with their boots, rifles and their dog tag one last time.
