Dogtags

Hey guys,
First of all this thread is not (and will not turn into) a political discussion about Iraq and/or any other war. I wanted to ask; does anyone know what is written on (mainly US) dogtags? I have often seen troops waring them and there being two of em…? Are the same things written on both or diff things?

oh i forgot to tell you the meaning of them having two…
the first one …being on a short chain…has a dent in the bottom…thats the bad one…in case of death…they place it between the teeth and shove the jaw up…then other one gets sent home… and both are identical in information…

thats the horrid truth…one gets to stay with the body…the other gets to go home…
