USMC ID Bracelet

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this ID bracelet and would like to know who the soldier was. Can someone help me with his identity? He didn't etch his name anywhere, only what appears to be his service number. 822-83-56.

Looks like a US Navy Service Number - Maybe a Corpsman?

Wow, that would be cool!! Looks like he had his tetanus shot in 1943, so he was in early enough to see some island hopping.
