"Greetings TNT crew!

I hate to burst your bubble, but what a soldier has on his or her dog tags is not an indication of endorsement from the US military, or an official recognition of said religion. It is a running joke in the military because you can list any religion or absurd made up word on your dog tags. It is not the end all document for what your burial will be based on. In fact you can view the symbols readily available for use on a government headstone at Unfortunately a list of recognized religions under a DoD regulation is not very easily found, but I just thought you might want to know that there will be no Jedi Council for a soldiers funeral just because he is an orthodox Jedi. It is generally conceived as a mockery and disrespectful. Love the show!

-Bryan from Fort Stewart"
