First of all, While mere words do not do justice, thank you to all of the vets and those currently in the armed forces. A very special thanks to all of those who had a loved one pay the ultimate sacrifice. To those with loved ones overseas, both those here on the home front and those in the field are in my prayers. Your selfless acts in defense of this country and what it stands for are why I can say I am proud to be an American. ;? ;w Secondly, my grandfather served in the Pacific theater with the 96th Infantry Division (The Deadeyes), specifically the recon troop.;? He passed away a few years ago and gave my brother and I one of his dog tags. I am just not sure if I should wear it. While I am not in the service I do believe the tag is more than just a piece of metal and would hate to see something happen to it (lost, stolen, damaged etc.). What do the veterans here think about a civilian wearing such a tag?
