Join polygons in a solid body?

I imported/converted an STL file into a solid body in Solidworks.  The file is a dog tag in the shape of a bone.  The resulting solid body has many polygons which make up the part.  I want to join them all into one so that I can write text on the surface of the object.  Currently I can only select one of the tiny polygons to add text to it.  I'm still learning Solidworks (newbie), so I was hoping someone can please provide me the steps on what I need to do.  If you'd like to see the file, I have attached it to this post.

 

Thank you,

Nelson
