When people think of dog tags, they often think of the military. It is true that military dog tags are used to help confirm soldiers’ identities, but these little tags have other uses as well. There are some organizations that use dog tags, and people with special medical needs wear them to alert others to their special needs. Some people wear dog tags to show support for their loved ones that are in the armed forces. No matter why you are shopping for these dog tags, you want to make sure to get a high quality product.
Most often the military dog tags are silver and the medical identification tags are red. The tags usually have room for five lines of information. For military uses, this information includes first and last name, an identification number, blood type and any religious preferences. For the medical identification tags, each line can have about 12 characters, and similar information may be used.
Most of the products available come with chains, but you can get extra chains for your dog tags. You can also get silencers that go around the tags to prevent them from making a sound when they strike each other. These tags are a great way to show support or identify yourself inside of an organization.
