My dad was in the WWII Navy and recently, my son was asking if I had his dog tags. I have a fair amount of stuff from my dad's navy days but I don't recall ever seeing any dog tags. My question is: Does, or did, the US Navy ever use dog tags? If not, what was the navy equivalent in WWII? BTW, a couple of the things I have from my dad are a subpoena from Posieden(sp?) and a HUGE certificate for the order of the shellbacks or lobsterbacks or some-such signed by Davy Jones and Poseiden for crossing the equator. Does the navy still do that? Angus
