Started during the American Civil War identification tags were first written on paper and attached to a soldiers jacket or knapsack, or inscribed on their belt buckle. Used to notify family of injury or death in the field. Dog tags as they are known today began during World War II. Lore has it that the notch was used to place the tag in the soldiers teeth so it wouldn’t get lost. It was actually used in the imprinting process. The term dog tags originated from the tags looking like dog registration tags, and has stuck still today. Order your authentic custom military dog tags today.
