General Order Number 10 of the 6th Regiment of Marines dated 15 February 1918 specifically stated, "The numbers assigned to all men present will be stamped in identification tags." There was some clarification in General Order Number 91, paragraph II, of 10 June 1918, which read as follows: The aluminum identification tags, each the size of a silver half dollar and of suitable thickness, will be worn by each officer and soldier of the American Expeditionary Force and by all civilians attached thereto. F., in 1917, will be issued until the present supply is exhausted.
