Official Policy on Lost Dogtags and other U.S. Military property
Because there are many bogus dogtags being “found” everyday, and because too many fraudulent people are attempting to make personal contact with veterans or their families with the hope of seeking a reward or obtaining publicity, the following official policy on LOST AND FOUND MILITARY ITEMS is being provided to all veterans. Please forward this information to other American veterans and veterans organizations.
OFFICIAL POLICY: LOST UNITED STATES MILITARY PROPERTY
1. Found U.S. Military items remain the property of the United States Government and the Department of Defense as official custodian.
2. Found military items should not be retained by the finder who is seeking, for whatever reason, to make personal contact with the GI who lost the item, or a member of the GI's family. By law, found military items must be mailed
Secretary of Defense

3. The Dept of Defense has many resources at its disposal to return and/or
preserve lost U.S. military items.
