    That is to make it easier to hammer between your front teeth so graves and registration can identify you latter.

    Actually that is where the machine that punches the information on the tag, indexes on it.

    Very cool, well done! Having many family elders that fought in WWII, that said not a single word of it. And also took it to they're graves, without EVER talking about it. What you post on the matter is very informative and thought provoking for sure. Thank you!
