Default Army making a mistake

.
The army is making a mistake by listening to a small group of iconoclasts, likely troublemakers wherever they go.

I believe this will be reversed..and due to the small group's indecency, the practice will likely spread to the Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard...and ready for the Space Force when it comes into fruition.

I have to agree. Dog tags are to identify you if your dead. There not a necklace. Wonder how the bitchers would react if some muslim soldier decided to have some Islamic prayer on his tags or some atheist or member of a satanic church decided to put them on his. My guess is if they were even screaming to put a crucifix on them someone here would say there idol worshiping. Dog tags are dog tags. theyd be opening a big can of worms with allowing soldiers to customize them. Stick your bible in your back pack or carry a fake tag with whatever you want on it in your pocket. Whats next GAY PRIDE dog tags! Be careful what you ask for

I would as soon see the troops go on just as they have done. If a Muslim wants a verse from the koran on his tags..let him do so, if a Roman Catholic wants a picture of a crucifix on his, fine.

If a Satanist want s a devil phrase on his, hey he's the one who will pay the price, to each his own.

A whole new opportunity there for shops catering to the troops..Make a 3rd dog tag..owned by the individual soldier etc..

...And it appears some are already doing this..

My tags from the sixties, of which I still have two sets, state my name, serial number, blood type and preferred religious faith (mine simply says Methodist). This, as previously stated, was in case you were wounded and unconscious and someone came to your aid, they would know how to care for you.

If we are ashamed to proclaim Him before man, He will be ashamed to proclaim us before the Father.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

yup mine did too. If your against decorating your church why would you be for decorating your dog tags. Like I said your more then welcome to have one made and carry it in your pocket. Idiots like those complain should know there not civilians and that the military isn't going to open this can of worms. Personally I cringe at the thought of gay pride or satanic dog tags. Sure don't see where being against this is ignoring God in any way. God is in your heart not on a piece of steel. What use is it to a Christian? Are you going to use it to pray? Heck maybe I ought to be able to hang mine at the end of a rosary! There ******** dog tags. Not some political or religious statement. Your religion is on them to make sure you get the proper last rites not to advertise what church you go to. We have enough messes in the military today without adding another controversial one. Wearing some bible scirpture quote around your neck doesn't make you a better Christian. You think when your killed that dog tag is going to buy you grace with God???? When the military tells you you cant go to church or pray come talk to me but this is just idiots trying to stir up ****. No different the the bitching done here when the military was forced to cater to muslims that wanted and got islamic chaplins.

if you would have served maybe your opinion would actually matter. I take exception to you saying that any solider against this is ashamed to proclaim themselves a Christian!!! Most of us don't need flowery words or some identifying tag to prove to you there a Christian. I owe no proof to anyone but God (that's GOD not G-D). God doesn't need some tag around my neck to know it either. If anyone should be ashamed its you that never had a set to begin with and dares to make a trash statement like that. one things for sure. What you want on yours.

I didn't say that, I quoted a scripture and you twisted it, again.

you basically said if a soldier or anyone is against this there ashamed to proclaim there a Christian. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. But then were used to your self appointed Christian judging here. Id suggest if around a real soldier you keep your judging to yourself for health reasons. Most of them wouldn't appreciate your flowery bs even less then me.
