    Ohio 1954 ser# 1485

    It seems that it is based on when you joined. I had a cousin that joined in 53 and his ser# was 13#####

    It depends on what district and how quotas were met. Mine was 1411xxx. Enlisted in Fresno, Ca. in July 1953.

    I worked in Data processing while in the Corps and from what I remember service numbers were assigned in boot campin numerical order/first come first served so to speak. I used that knowledge to keep tabs on many of my boot camp friends since their service numbers were all close to what mine was 2527xxx from november 1968....
