Q: Am I correct that the instructions say to type digits for a month if digits are on the page rather than letters so that if I see "6409", I would enter month 09 and year 64? The word month is left off the form, so it says "military" rather then "military month". I find that digits are almost impossible to enter for the month.
- A: Yes, that is correct. I don't know if you would key 09 or 9 as month. For days we do not use leading zeroes. That's a question for WAP to answer. --Wiedwoman 02:44, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
