Let's face it, if you have a real serial number, you are from a bygone day. Mine was 236.... and if I remember correctly, it was given to me when I signed the dotted line in Memphis after my physical in March of '67. I remember all the hoopla about using your SSN especially the statement that SSN was not to be used for identification. People still complain today, but let's face it. no matter what they used for personal identification, some crook out in the cyber world will figure out a way to steal it.

Then you should remember the hurricaine between August and September,( I belive), that flooded out 3rd bn and forced us out of our quanset huts and move to 2 bn. Even the steets of 2nd bn looked like a river.

During the early 60's it was easy to tell when someone went in by his serial number and the really salty guys had six digits in theirs, from WWII and before. I've heard since that unit cohesion is damaged to some degree by SSN's because the first three digits denote state of issue and this leads to regional bias.
