They appeal God for help in all occasions, in any circumstances with the words “Save and Protect”, “God bless me”. An icon of Jesus Christ is a small step to Him, a little thread, tied us with an image of God.
A dog tag is a badge of a soldier with the information about its wearer, obligatory to wear in the majority of the armies. For the dog’s age the main purpose of the dog tag was to get rid of the notion “the Unknown Warrior” and to help in the first aid.
Today dog tags are used not only by soldiers. They are very popular as trendy accessory in “military” style, as various trinkets, adornments, mascots, amulets.
In its form a dog tag is a rectangular plate with rounded ends, with ribbed stiffener along the perimeter and pierced at the top for the cord, ring or chain.
The reverse side of the tag is supposed to put on engraving with personal information, memorial dates, verses, congratulations and other texts of your own choice.
The dog tag is supplied in complete with two strong ball chains – 23 5/8 inch and 2 7/16 inch, for the purpose of wearing it on the neck as an amulet or using it as a trinket for the bunch of keys, different fasteners on the clothes, purse, handbag, pouch, messenger bag and so on.
A dog tag is the informal name for the identification tags worn by military personnel, named such as it bears resemblance to actual dog tags. The tag is primarily used for the identification of essential basic medical information, such as blood type and history of inoculations, along with providing religious preference.
Dog tags are fabricated from a corrosion-resistant metal or stainless-steel.
In the US Military, wearing of the tag is required at all times by soldiers in the field. One is worn on a long chain around the neck; the second on a much smaller chain attached to the first chain. Alternatively, some units allow or require each member to wear one laced into their boot in lieu of the second around the neck.
Dog tags have recently found their way into youth fashion by way of military chic. Originally worn as a part of a military uniform by youth wishing to present a tough or militaristic image, dog tags have since seeped out into wider fashion circles. They may be inscribed with a person’s details, their beliefs or tastes, a favorite quote, or may bear the name or logo of a band or performer.
Some people also prefer to have the information on their tags transferred to a smaller, sometimes golden or silver tag by a jeweler, as the original tag can be considered too large and bulky by some. Some tags (along with similar items such as MedicAlert bracelets) identify their wearers as having health problems that may: suddenly incapacitate their wearers and render them incapable of providing treatment guidance (as in the cases of heart problems, epilepsy, and diabetes); interact adversely with medical treatments, especially standard or “first-line” ones (as in the case of an allergy to common medications or a religious, moral, or other objection to artificial resuscitation), if a first responder attempts to administer such treatment when the wearer is nonresponsive and thus unable to warn against doing so.
