    Didier, Certainly not "dog tags", or at least not American style. Being they are in English with the A.S.A. on it, this could possibly be some type of unit award for a U.S. Army A.S.A uinit (Army Security Agency). These units were broken down into Sections. The A.S.A was disbanded and merged into Military Intelligence in the 70's. It's at least a place to start, hope this helps. Can't think of anything else on these. Good luck, John

    I know a guy who served in that unit in Germany back in the 1960s. They are known as the "Spooks" of the Army. Nice item BTW.

    PS, I dont know if he still has his tags or not? but can ask next chance I see him.

    PS, they spent most of their time in the Army wearing Civilian clothes and not on a military installation. I dont know much else about them though.

    Hi Dusty, I was in the A.S.A 64-67 in Berlin, I've never seen anything like this either but with the A.S.A and section 25 it could have been an inter-unit commendation. Our sections were color coded but others could have been numerical. Nice to hear from an old A.S.A'er. John
