Generally speaking numbers fall into two broad catagories, simple 7 or 8 digit numbers (in a few cases fewer digits) for male enlisted personnel, and prefied serial numbers for other personnel.  Regular Army enlisted men who enterend the service before the outset of Selective Service bear 7- digit or lower serial numbers, usually beginning with 6 or 7 as 6974426.  Men who enlisted in the Army of the United States have 8-digit numbers beginning with 1, the 2nd digit indicating the  Service Command of orgin. For example, the serial number 14066025 would indicate that the man enlisted in the Army of the United States in the 4th Command (Southeastern United States).  Men called federally recognized National Guard service received 8-digit numbers beginning with 2, the 3rd digit representing the Service Command.  20107656 indicates a National Guardsman from New England (1st Service Command).  Men inducted or enlisted through Selective Service were given 8-digit numbers beginning with 3 or 4, the 2nd digit number representing the Service Command.  The prefixed serial numbers for other than male enlisted personnel carry a designated letter O (as in O-1574257) for male commissioned officers.  W=Male Warrent Officer, T=Flight Officer of the Army Air Force, L=Commissioned Office of the Women's Army Corps, V=WAC Enlisted Officer, A=WAC Enlisted Women, B=Hosiptal Dietitians, & M=Physical Theraphy Aides.
