Attached a medallion I got when I joined the American National Cane Club to one of my walking sticks I had to bend it around the stick to make it fit right and pre drilled the holes for the brass nails this was the best way I could see how to do it, by the way this is my first time putting one on a stick. I got one more don't know whitch stick I'm going to put it on.

Similarly, I had duplicate dog tags made, and attached one to several of my early sticks.

I'll probably do more in the future. This is problematic for today's warriors, as I believe that their SSN may be their service number. Years ago this wasn't the case, and so I'm not compromising confidential information.

The dog tags are a good idea for service men except the part about their SSN being on them. Is there anyone that can make replica tags with just their name on them? Might be a good way to personalize a stick.

I purchased mine from "Sgt. Grit" or www.grunt.com.

You tell them what to put on them and what type of metal finish. A hole is on one end for the chain, so I drilled a hole on the opposite end. Before bending around the unfinished stick, I roughed up the back of the dogtag for better epoxy adhesion. They're "screwed and glued."

The letters are punched from the opposite side as my 1966 dogtags.
