In the 80's they used your SSN" in fact it was even on your dogtags. I don't wear mine anymore for that very reason.

Mine was 1108310. Anyone remember SSgt Deason, DI, MCRD San Diego? I graduated in December, 1950 and can't remember my platoon number. I know, sounds stupid, but wait until you've lost it, kiddo.

Since this thread seems to have brought attention to Gen'l Krulak, here's another one.
He was based at Quantico (Maj Gen Merrill B. Twining, who's brother was Lt Gen Nathan B. Twining - was Base Commandant) while I was there.
One of the events Quantico was noted for was it's (this was the 1958) Annual Horseshow (as best I recall, Quantico housed one, if not THE, largest stable in the Marines).
And Gen'l Krulak was apparently quite an accomplished equestrian (or maybe he thought he was), but he was preparing for a jump and just as the horse was about to lift for the hurdle, a base photographer snapped a flash picture.
Apparently that caused the horse to buck and the Gen'l went flying off. He got up and lit into the photographer -much to that person's chagrin.
The Gen'l may have been short of stature, but he was plum full of vinegar that day.

I was a Unit Diary Clerk (Remington Raider) in '72 and I was responsible for changing all of our Marine's MSN's to SSN's. I think it is a good thing they are changing them back.

I was in when they made the change. I didn't see the necessity of making the change in the first place. The only thing that was told to us was that it was to make the joint services more uniform. I can't figure out why the Marine Corps would want to be more like the other services. Only our ID cards were reissued with the ssn on them. Does anyone know when this happens, will they sequentially pick up where they left off?

It changes, and changes, as time goes on. Wait until you see guys with bar codes on their necks. (real ones, or chips) or on the arm. Easy access, and the property of the U.S. government.

I remember Gen. Krulak, he was the C.G. at MCRD in San Diego. We had a C.G. inspection and he stood behind me, and questioned Capt. Hayes about my uniform being pleated in the back. We were in our summers and wore dresses, they were green and white pinstripe with big green buttons. The men pleated their blouses, so I did the same with my uniform. My serial #was W711***.
