This has nothing to do with the separation of church and state which you completely do not understand!

Military members may pursue any belief & possess any scripture they want, but one version of a religion cannot be officially promoted & endorsed by our secular government by placing its scripture on government issue property (military identification tags) at taxpayer expense because that is prohibited by the US Constitution, established American law, Department of Defense regulatory laws & military regulations. Our troops do not have, nor have they ever had, the right or authority to determine or alter what is on their government issued military identification tags or government issued military identification cards.
 
Your threatening anger is moronically misdirected. It would be more rationally directed at those who disrespect & disregard our laws rather than those of us who respect & request compliance with our laws.
 
For your information, even Jesus separated religion & government (see Mark 12:17).
