Civilians don't need to wear the tags, and therefore shouldn't wear them. If you're not in any Military, you will never need dogtags. I wore them in my final year in Cadets because I wanted get used to them before I came here. There was nothing engraved on them, because I knew that I had not yet earned the right to have anything on them.

Basically, it irritates me to see some Civvie wearing tags when they don't have any reason to wear them.

Most people just wear them for fashion.

I think it depends. I know that in the Canadian cadet corps you can have ones made for you for a price but they do not resemble those used by the canadian military. They are just for looks you could say. I had my own during my time in cadets and it was a pretty cool thing to have. Most of the kids there liked having them. Now I have the real thing as a CF member and it's not the same because with cadets we knew the differential value of having our "cadet tags" and real dog tags. Now the meaning is different cuase it's something kinda symbolic to a new member.

Some guys on my track team had them made, my brother was in with it so he made me a copy as well. I just hung it on the side of the closet though.

Now this is an excellent reason for a civilian to wear a type of dog tag. I think, as i said earlier, it depends on why and who is wearing them as well as if they look completely real or not.

Nothing wrong with owning dog tags. I want a pair so I can show support for my armed forces.
