General Assembly Resolution # 490
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The General Assembly,
Aware that the whereabouts of many military personnel of various nations of the General Assembly remains unknown,
Appalled at the absence of medical treatment to recovered, yet unresponsive military personnel due to lack of identification,
Lamenting that many soldiers who are killed-in-action remain unidentified,
Wishing to reunite those who are killed-in-action with their loved ones for proper funeral services,
Knowing that military identification tags lend tremendous help in seeking missing-in-action or killed-in-action military combatants,
Acknowledging the significant role of military identification tags in the treatment of unconscious or unresponsive military personnel,
Noting that the bodies of deceased military personnel must be correctly identified in order to inform loved ones of loss, conduct funerals, as well as properly bury or cremate deceased combatants based on the wishes of the deceased,
1. Defines a military identification tag as any durable item worn by military personnel for the purpose of identifying a deceased or unconscious body of a military combatant,
2. Requires that all members of the World Assembly issue military identification tags to all registered military combatants and field personnel with the following correct and legible identification categories:
- Full legal name, including middle initial or name and suffix,
- Military identification number,
- Blood type, indicating blood type letter and Rh factor,
3. Allows member nations to include any other information deemed necessary,
4. Requires that all member nations issue each tag with a duplicate in order to identify the bodies of deceased combatants for initial identification and later recovery,
5. Allows member nations to provide the resources required to produce military identification tags to other member nations if said nation has a lack thereof.
6. Advises member nations from issuing military identification tags to unregistered combatants with public funding,
7. Prohibits the intentional destruction or displacement of active or salvaged military identification tags by any means,
8. Allows member nations to re-purpose the materials in military identification tags after they have been decommissioned.
