Question by Glutton 4 Punishment: Why do service members need to print their ssn on their ID tags?
I'm ordering some military style dog tags since they're much cheaper than the fancy ones from the local pharmacy (which are literally 6 times the price) and the format currently used supposedly has the SSN printed right on it. Seems counter intuitive since lost dog tags could mean identity theft here on U.S. soil, right? So does anybody know why the SSN is used?
Not like I have to worry about it, I'm not in the service due to medical reasons. It's just curiosity.

yepâ¦the military no longer issues âservice numbers' and long ago converted to using social security numbers only as âservice numbers'â¦therefore, it's on the id tagsâ¦can't remember exactly when this change took place, but it was in the 1970'sâ¦sorry, i see your point, but that's the way it isâ¦

Here is the machine at Wild Bills Army Surplus that makes Military Dog Tags. This is the 1940's version of the same machine used by the US Government. Once the tags are made, 2 tags are then wrapped with a silcone silencer (available in several colors) and chain. For more information call us 865-366-7179 or check out our website www.WildBillsArmySurplus.com
