battle roster unit ID

Recommended Posts

I have an ACH helmet band with sewn battle roster ID and would like to know if there is anyway of identifying unit or time frame this alpha/numeric sequence was in use?

 

The band has the following information on it. name is front right, battle roster ID-right side, blood type-left side.

 

I have heard that battle rosters could have 3 or more letters plus last four of soldiers SSN and that the numbers of different roster IDs are numerous as roster IDs are created without regulation by various unit commanders.

This would be a unit by unit deal, so as you alluded to, you're not likely to find who they were with.  That being said, it is likely with those letters then the last four of the SSN are likely their company/battery/ etc, plus first/last initial.
