3. Marking and Tagging.
The capturing unit is responsible for tagging items of foreign materiel. To facilitate segregation,
collection, analysis, and evacuation of materiel for intelligence purposes, weather-resistant equipment
tags, normally produced within the theater, are securely attached to the item and to the shipping
container, Figure 3-2. If weather-resistant tags are not available at the troop level, any material may be
used as a tag as long as pertinent capture data can be recorded. Equipment tags accompany the
materiel to its final destination. Article 103, Uniform Code of Military Justice, is printed on the reverse
side of the tag to prevent tampering, Figure 3-3.
