I just finished boot camp and our whole division was disappointed that the Navy no longer issues ID tags (although they still give us the chain with a key for our locks). Even our RDCs were bitter about it. Does anyone have any thoughts or insight as to why the Navy recently did this?

I was not aware they had stopped issuing dog tags. If I were to guess why it would probably be related to modern DNA technology. Which I believe is coded into your Common Access Card (CAC). When I retired in 2001 we still had the green DD Form 2 ID Card. The Form 2 did not have a chip. We had to show our dog tags as we boarded military aircraft.
Other than that I have no idea.

Some WOKESTER more than likely claimed dog tags were hurtful or racist.
