Dog Tags

Does anyone ride wearing dog tags? If so, from where did you order them, and what information did you have etched?

I don't ride with them but I got mine in 1969 at the Naval Training Center San Diego, CA, they are etched with my name, service number, blood type and religous preference. Forty years later and 23 years of active service to my country they are still mine!

Thanks. I believe I was thinking of non-military sources, though.

I don't ride with dog tags. If I did they would have to be non-military in style, and they would state my owners name and phone number so if anyone finds me they can get a reward for returning me.

To all those who EARNED their dog tags through their service to our country, we who have benefited from your service owe much to you and to your families for your sacrifice.

Didn't mean to open up a can of worms. I seem to remember reading in a motorcycling magazine (or book?) that wearing dog tags is helpful, especially if you should become both incapacitated and separated from your regular ID or wallet. That's why I was debating ordering the dog tags, not to be a faux military person.

Having your blood type and any other pertinent medical info (diabetic, high blood pressure, etc.,) readily available for medical personnel might save some time in case of an emergency. Don't think it would be an affront to our men and women in uniform if it were worn under the shirt.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Why don't you go down to your local hospital and volunteer to be a blood donor. Along with helping the community, you will learn your blood type. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

Instead of dog tags, try this from JC Whitney. http://www.jcwhitney.com/HELMET_PACK...;0;0;2010110;0

I'm going to order one myself.
