Religion line on modern USMC dogtags

Googled: Religion +ID tags +military +denomination +dogtags, combinations thereof.

Just a quick one: the religion line on modern day Marine Corps dogtags. What I've been able to find suggests that there are four commonly used options: Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, but is there a checklist where you pick one or none of the above, or can you put something else on there? (I found an anecdote about Australians adding things like "Jedi Knight" or "Sith Lord") Mostly what I need to know is: if a character is some flavour of Protestant (Baptist, or Lutheran or Methodist or what have you), could they have that specific denomination on the tag, or would all of those fold in under "Protestant" and specifics be left for the personnel file?
