About Serial Numbers

Serial numbers: Generally speaking, numbers fall into two broad catagories:
simple seven or eight digit numbers (in a few cases fewer digits) for male
enlisted personnel and prefixed serial numbers for other personnel.

Regular Army enlisted men who entered the service before the onset of Selective Service bear seven-digit or lower serial numbers, usually begining with a "6" or "7".

Men who enlisted in the Army of the United States have eight-digit numbers beginning with "1", the second digit indicating the Service Command of origin. For example the serial number 14058025 would indicate that the man enlisted in the Army of the United States in the Fourth Service Command (Southeastern United States).

Men called into federally recognized National Gard Service received eight-digit numbers beginning with "2", the third digit representing the Service Command
2017656 indicates a National Guardsman from New England (First Service

Men inducted or enlisted through Selective Service were given eight-digit numbers beginning with "3" or "4", the second digit representing the service command.
