How do I wear dog tags?
The first tag is suspended on the longer necklace chain which is approximately 24", 27", 30" in length.
The second tag if gotten is suspended on the shorter extension (4.5" chain ) so it hangs no further than 2 1/2" under the first one. Silencers (a rubber cover for the dog tag), are used to prevent clanking of the metal dog tags.
