Dog Tags - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Right hand raised
Swearing to uphold…..
“You’re in the army now”

Dog Tags chained
Affirm identity
They are you
You are them
Inseparable

Vital info
Name
Serial number
Religion
Blood type
Facilitates identification
Wounded
Captured
Dead
A statistic

Dog Tags
Remain
Indestructible
Proof you existed

    I still have my dog tags, somewhere. They were good to show to the wife, when I first met her.. so she'd know I was house-broken... -chuck (Report) Reply
