We Will Remember
Memorial Dog Tag Project
The sacrifice made by those who chose to protect our freedom will not be forgotten. Every life matters and every name will be remembered.
After looking at pictures from WW2 in 2020, I asked my mom how old the people were that died for our country. They didn't look that much older than me ( I was 12). So many of them didn't get a chance come home, finish growing up, get married and have a full life. I wanted to do something to make sure that they were remembered so I saved up money from chores for a few years to start the #wewillremember project. I am making dog tags from the information of those who died during our country's wars from the National Archives and am asking people to carry the tag or put it someplace that they can see it. That way someone is saying the servicemember's name, praying for them or just being actively thankful for the gift that they gave all of us with their service and sacrifice.
More than 50,000 dog tags (all of the tags from the Korean War and some from the Vietnam War) have been finished but there are still many more to go. The tags are provided for free. 100% of the costs are covered by my chore money and sponsorships and donations from amazing people and groups that want to help my mission move forward.
The dog tags are provided for free but the requester pays for shipping. If you would like to help find homes for a large group of dog tags, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for more than 10 tags will not be fulfilled through the website.
If you request a tag, please know that this is the only tag with that servicemember's name on it. Please consider this "adopting" the tag and the servicemember.
All of the tags from the Korean War have been made, but I am still looking for homes for some of them. I hope to begin working on printing the Vietnam tags this summer.
