lost-and-found badge

An identification tag worn by armed forces members on a chain around their necks. I kept my lost-and-found badge from the First Gulf War to remind me how tough life can really get. The bodies in the unmarked graves were buried with their lost-and-found badges, so military personnel were able to identify them and repatriate their remains home.
