Are there a curtain number of digits in a marines serial number? I think I've found my grandfathers serial number on his discharge certificate, I just want to make sure I'm looking at the right number.
Also, Is there away I can find the serial number of my grandfather that served in the Army during World War II? Is there a place online or someone that can run his name and branch and possible time period when he served to get his serial number? I haven't been able to find it anywhere else and I don't have any of his discharge records. I do have his social security number also. He wasn't killed in action, he survived the war and died of natural causes. Can someone help me out? Thanks for your help.
