Trait: Dog Tags
This character wears dog tags.
A dog tag is the informal name for the identification tags worn by military personnel, because of their resemblance to actual dog tags. The tag is primarily used for the identification of dead and wounded along with providing religion (to provide for calling a Catholic priest or Jewish rabbi for last rites) and essential basic medical information for the treatment of the latter, such as blood type and history of inoculations.
Dog tags are usually fabricated from a corrosion-resistant metal or alloy such as aluminum, monel or stainless-steel, although, during wartime, they have been made from whatever metals were available. In the event the member has a medical condition that requires special attention, an additional, red tag with the pertinent information is issued and worn with the dog tags.
Wearing of the tag is required at all times by soldiers in the field.
