Re: Service numbers
NO they are not the same. The military changed from Military Service Numbers to SSNs in the 1968 to early 1970's.

State Death Certificates have SSN numbers and just have Yes or no if Military Veteran, some mention Branch.
My dad is in the VA BIRLS Death File and they have his SSN not his old Military Service number. He was retired military and used VA Medical Benefits and died before 2000.
