As night fell, US soldiers stationed in Guadalcanal stood solemnly together under the command of the priest to hold a funeral for their comrades killed in the daytime fighting. The company commander wiped the blood from the dead boys' faces with his own hands to make them look as if they had not left. Then he solemnly took a small sign from the body's neck and hung it on himself. This small sign is the identity card with the identity mark, popularly known as "Dog Tag".
During World War II, "Dog Tag" was not only engraved with information such as name and rank, but also added contents such as blood type, time of joining the army, and the serial number of the troops to which it belonged. Perhaps many people have heard of Dog Tag but still have some doubts.Why is Dog Tag made of metal? After the first world war broke out, many soldiers were wounded or killed in the war because of the great power of new weapons. many of the bodies of missing soldiers could not be identified, and sometimes the bodies were hastily buried. And those paper identification cards are easily damaged. Only army card made of metal can be preserved. As long as army card is not damaged, comrades in arms have hope to find their own bodies and take them home.
