Posted on Mar 4, What are the authorized religions on ID dog tags? SGT P Join to see. I am aware there is a list of ‘approved’ religious preferences for ad official records, AR Chapter 1, Section 1, Tablehowever I could not find anything official for the ID Tag.
I have talked to my Chaplain Assistant who talked to my Chaplain as well as done a bunch of INET searching and can’t find anything official on this.
Only thing I have found is statements by groups and individuals that the ID Tag is not an ‘official’ military document and you can put whatever you want on it.
Need some clarification, help on this subject please. Posted in these groups: Regulation Religion Dog Tags. I never gave a damn what the regulations say about what we put on our dog tags.
Why should anyone be limited by what they decide their faith is?
When I joined, they made me put no religious preference on there. That’s not what an atheist is.

Atheist is the only way to clearly state you don’t believe in a higher power. Atheist has been approved for a very long time, although many in authority were and are not aware of that. Back in I had to fight to get Atheist on my enlistment documents and dog tags.
People didn’t understand my objection to the then-default “No Pref”, which at death is translated to “Unspecified Denomination Christian”.
I did have 608-29 Atheist enlistment and dog tags inafter many push-ups and a trip to see the commander at basic training. Sir, As someone who has spent the last 10 years in both stateside, Germany and Deployed Hospitals I have never had a Chaplain ask to see my patients Dog Tags.

They normally just go and talk to our patients, nothing to do with Religion at first just someone to listen and talk to. After the conversation has been going on for a while they will ask the Soldier, Airmen, Seamen or Marine if they want to pray.
If the patient is ra they will normally go pray with the family members or a look at the chart for the Religion and pray at the bedside. The Religion preference that we put in the chart we never get from their Dog Tags either, we pull it from their medical records.
As for Dog Tags, my previous statement above is from talking to Chaplains at all these hospitals in the 608-29 10 years. If you want no religious services you can put Atheist, or None on your Dog Tags. Then what is to stop someone who doesn’t like your religion, regardless of sincerely held beliefs, from declaring it parody?? Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof is pretty clear to me.
If I have to prove my religion for a government official, and they can just up and decide it’s not a ‘real’ religion, that’s pretty much a clear cut violation of the 1st amendment I forgot about this post. Put down your pitchforks, it was a gag. I don’t wear these in uniform. Cpl Join to see 1 y. The Church of Satan has been around for 51 years. I wish they had room to put on mine what my religion actually is: I understand that having the religion on the tags is generally for last rites, but its still a personal thing and I do not understand why people need to make it so “in your face” sometimes.
