I've been thinking since I've found out that DH is getting deployed about dog tags. I've heard that some spouses wear them while their significant other is deployed, and I've read that some don't. I've always wondered where it came from for the spouse to wear the dog tag. I know that I will be wearing them while DH is deployed, and it will also have his wedding ring on it. His ring is tungsten, and they don't have anything that will cut it off if that needed to happen so he would have to lose his finger. We decided together that he would leave it here, and I would wear it on the dog tags that I would wear while he is deployed. So my question is: do you wear dog tags when your spouse is deployed? Why or why not?
