A person on another Forum posted a message to the effect that there are persons who are researching veterans identities to use in fraudulent action. So perhaps no Service Numbers should be posted. The stone the National Cemetery in Santa Fe NM put only the person's name and rank, his service - such as US Army, World War II, the dates of his birth and death. The only Medal they would allow me to mention was the Purple Heart.
I do not know if other places allowed other things but the Santa Fe Cemetery is a very old one.Mary
