Hello, Don't know if I have the right forum to post this in, but does anyone know if this is a Seabee's military number for a person? Number is 2D3880JT7. And all of the other passengers have those similar numbers and there is a 39-40 also before many of those numbers. My uncle was on a transport headed for Eniwetok Atoll in August of 1955 and these are the numbers associated with that record. The "header" for those numbers says "Priority Identification". Manifest # was HIK AFB 55 4564. I know the HIK AFB is Hickam Air Force Base. Carrier says MATS which is "owner or operator" and Destination Airport states KWX. On another page it says Kwajalein Atoll so I assume that is KWX. Flight number was 245/21 leaving July 22, 1955. Some of the "passengers" were civilians (Mr.'s) and some were military (Capt./Sgt etc). I know he work on Eniwetok when they were preparing to test the atomic bomb there. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
