7 digit service numbers? (pre WWII?)
I have a service number for someone who served in the army 1943-1945.It's 7 digits (6234221), which seems odd.

I thought that perhaps I had written it down incorrectly, but then I realized that he had also been in the US Cavalry from 1926-1929.
Were a seven digit numbers used 1926-1929?
Is it likely that he would keep the same number?(Apparently, he was not "active" military between 1929 and 1943)
Is there anything else I can learn from this number?
Thanks in advance.
