Ive been trying to figure out what to do with unit IDed dog tags for a while now. I usually put them on a display board (cup hooks attached to wood) or put them inside other displays, but I wanted something more. This is what I came up with for a handful of them. It looks nice, but it doesnt hold many tags the way it is setup. Each set has a name/unit plaque and a unit patch. I figured Id share. Enjoy.

Connor, thanks. I always like looking at your website. Very organized and detailed.

 

Simon, I agree. I have a handful of them in their uniforms but not many. It would be an amazing addition. Thanks for the idea. :)

I like the info placards you've included next to the tags. I do a similar thing in displaying my tags as a concise way to summarize key things like name, unit, and campaigns. Would love to see some close ups on those to learn the history of your tags veterans!

Very nice! 29th ID tags are especially interesting finds. I finally tracked one down awhile ago myself and he was, coincidentally, also a member of your vet's 115th Infantry.

Thanks! That they are. It took me a while to track down a set.
