Introduction to Spin Codes
Even on an Honorable discharge, a "Spin Code" (SPN - Separation Program
Number) can hurt a veteran's chance of being hired by a prospective employer.
These spin codes were put on DD 214 (discharge papers) from the 1940's through
the early 1970's. Veterans can request a new DD 214 with the spin codes
Examples of a few spin codes:
SPN 258 - Unfitness, multiple reasons
SPN 263 - Bedwetter
SPN 41A - Apathy, lack of interest
SPN 41E - Obesity
SPN 46C - Apathy / Obesity
SPN 463 - Paranoid personality
(see longer list of spin codes below)
If you were in the US Army, written requests for having a SPN code removed
from your DD 214 (Report of Separation From Active Duty) or earlier discharge
papers, should be sent to:
Reserve Components Personnel
& Administrative Center
St. Louis, MO 63132

Spin Codes - Legal Action
By: Edwin Crosby
The author of this story, Edwin Crosby, served in the USAF from 1966-1971.
He volunteered to go to Vietnam, and served in MACVSOG, 15th Special
Operations Squadron, Nha Trang, AB, RVN from November 1968 to June 1970.
His lawsuit began in March of 1976, having discovered in February of 1976,
he had a BAD 'Spin Code' number. The case was originally filed in the US
District Court, Northern District of New York, Syracuse. He has been fighting
this case on behalf of all veterans and has been instrumental in having D.O.D.
change the DD-214 many times to prevent future damage to other veterans.
Beginning JUNE 11, 1956, under D.O.D. Instruction 1336.3, DOD ordered the
military departments to begin putting a coded number on the main employment
reference document of veterans. This document known as the DD-214 is intended
to be presented to employers by veterans seeking employment and benefits.
According to Plaintiff's Exhibit NO: 6, D.O.D. Instruction 1336.1, dated
September 1, 1966, SUBJECT - Standardization of Forms for Report of Transfer or
Discharge of Members of the Armed Forces of the U.S., there were to be 8 or
more copies of DD-214 made. Copy one to the veteran, other copies eventually
went to State Adjutant General, VA Data Processing Center, Austin, TX.,
State Director Selective Service, Nat. Military Records Center, St. Louis, Mo.
As of 1977, nearly 20 million veterans had a coded number. This is SHOCKING
as in 1974 D.O.D. told Congress that only a couple hundred thousand had a
code number. Moreover, in 1974 DOD told Congress they would stop the " SPN "
coding system, however, in 1972, they were already changing the system to "
SPD " ( separation program designator ). They deceived Congress and the
American People. Millions of veterans with an Honorable Discharge have a " BAD
" coded number.
Plaintiff's Exhibit NO: 19 is the " infamous corporation questionnaire ".
These are major corporations admitting to having the codes and using them
against veterans. I am the only one to have this due to litigation, as it is
locked up in Congress under a " Classified " coding. Banks, life insurance
companies, State Gov't & Federal Gov't Agencies have them as well. Lists of
the codes were sent to FAA, ( federal aviation admin. ) HUD, ( housing & urban
development ) Office Personnel Management.
One corporation admitted that the VA has told us this is not confidential
and they will send us a copy. Amazing!
There are Congressional Records available to read on this matter. As
Congress attempted once to pass a law regarding the use of the coded numbers,
however, this failed to pass.
Have you ever gone to a VA Hospital and had the doctor attempt to send you
to the psychologist or psychiatrist ?? Your coded SPN was probably the reason
why, and you did not even know, moreover, there could be nothing in your
military records saying you had seen a psychologist, but, that did not stop
them. One of the most given out codes was SPN-265 or SDN-265, which says,
unsuitability, character & behavior disorders.
There were 5 main categories; unsuitability, unfitness, misconduct,
homosexual, or, any reason based upon mental or moral issues. Then under each
category, they piled on a bunch of numbers and meanings. i.e. SPN-384, Drug
Abuse, Marijuana or Heroin. And get this, those veterans who signed up for
" DRUG AMNESTY " you got a code number, SPN-384, YOU GOT NO AMNESTY !!!
You got screwed.
Here are some things I have discovered over the years: (1) the State of
N.Y. denied me the right to take a Civil Service Test because the State
Employee punched my SSN into a computer and pulled up my military records ( they
are not supposed to have them ) then said there is your code, sorry, NO TEST.
It was the very same code number the Gov't said in Court would never surface
again, they corrected the records, RIGHT, they did nothing. (2) VA'S
Board of Veterans Appeals sent a 500 page transcript regarding my 19 year old
claim for disability over to the U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals, on page 63,
there was the same DD-214 the Gov't said would never surface again, RIGHT,
they did nothing. Have you had trouble getting benefits with VA ? Try this
on for size, someone else has your claim number, a phony or ghost, and they
get your money ! (3) VA employee tells me someone else has same number as
you, that's impossible, or, is it ?? (4) a U.S. Senators aid here in
Montana tells me this doesn't exist, it is a rumor, yep, sure, then I say, I am
the one who took lawsuit to US Supreme Court, well now, all of a sudden its
no longer a rumor, and does exist.
I have lived in Upstate NY, Missouri for 8 months, Illinois for 16 months,
and now Montana 9 months. Everywhere I go, I speak to veterans, or, meet
with them to tell them what is going on. On Sept. 29, 2001, I attended a "
Veterans Standdown " here in Billings. I set up a table, and 7 vets came by
with their DD-214 ( others did, but did not have DD-214 with them ). Vet
NO: 7 had a code I never saw before, advised him to write to service branch he
was in and ask, the other 6 veterans had an HONORABLE DISCHARGE, and ALL
had a rotten coded number. What was alarming was all 6 said there was nothing
in their military records to indicate they should have had that code. They
were stabbed in the back.
In 1984, I submitted a PROPOSAL to the VA under PUBLIC LAW 98-160, National
Needs Assessment of Vietnam Veterans. I had the support of the National
Council of Churches, and the N.Y. State Council of Churches. I won that GRANT !
My Grant called for " CHAPLAINS " not psychologists who are lying to
veterans about this PTSD stuff, when the coded SPN, SDN, or SPD code is
responsible for many, many problems. The White House took it away. The Church folks
got on a plane and lit out for Washington. Some deal was struck, think it was
Veterans Outreach Centers, whatever.
You must find out what your coded number is, remember, if you were
discharged before 1974, you automatically have one, after 1974, it went on the other 8
or more copies of DD-214, and your still dead meat.
What angers me most is the American Legion & V.F.W. They remain silent on
this matter. I was a service officer for Am. Leg. in N.Y. I actually got
fired for helping veterans and widows win their benefits. I file a claim, and
they had to reinstate me. I resigned 2 months later, having been cut off
from those items I need to help veterans with.
Here is my email address; _ECROSBY1@...
) if you have any questions, want to see copies of these
documents, give me a FAX number, will send them to you, with your promise to show
them to other veterans, or help a vet with one of these codes.
Currently, I am reopening this lawsuit here in Billings, Mt. The Judge
should make some sort of Decision by the end of April, at least I hope he does.
The smoking gun is there, however, the corruption within our Justice System
is outrageous. I sent a criminal complaint to the FOREMAN of the Federal
Grand Jury here on March 1st, 2002. The US Attorney intercepted it. Charges,
GENOCIDE & WAR CRIMES, both under TITLE 18, PART 1, CHAPTER 50A, SECTION
1091, and, TITLE 18, PART 1, CHAPTER 118, SECTION 2441. Those of us who
have these codes fall directly under the wording of these 2 sections of law. We
are being systematically eliminated because thieves want to rip off the VA
for billions of dollars. Well, screw them.
For those veterans who do not like to be stabbed in the back, and you are
looking for a way to fight back, there is the BOARD FOR CORRECTION OF MILITARY
RECORDS. It requires one piece of paper, a Gov't Form, and a very good
statement of case. That is to say, on my DD-214 is a coded number, there is
nothing in my records saying I did what the code says, you have blacklisted me,
stabbed me in the back, character assassinated my good family name. Under
TITLE 10, Section 1552, you are entitled to be paid for an " injustice ".
That is what you are claiming. I would look on an internet library such as
Cornell Univ. and make copy of that law: _http://www.law.http://www._
Do not be afraid to get some help, however, be careful as any vet rep may
try to talk you out of it. You have been stabbed in the back, make sure you
get some Justice.

BRIEF/REBUTTAL with the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Crosby is trying to
reopen the SPN, SDN, SPD coded number lawsuit he took to the U.S. Supreme
Court. A U.S. Federal Judge in Billings, Mt. denied his request to vacate or set
aside the original Decision based on SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY. This is incorrect
under 28 U.S.C. 1331.
Moreover, the U.S.A.F. and the Gov't lawyers now claim they DID NOT have to
obey the two (2) U.S. Federal Court Orders issued to them as the Judge did
not list each and every DD-214 the Government generated, nor, list each and
every electronic data bank ( computers ) this coded number was sent to,
including State & Federal Government Agencies. Is that lame or what ??!!!!
Twice Federal Judges said to correct ALL the RECORDS, now they use a lame
excuse like that. Hopefully, other Judges will not buy that theory.
Should the 9th Circuit Court refuse to do anything about this sordid matter
of branding human beings with coded numbers for the purpose of systematic
elimination, veteran Crosby is going to Canada and request political asylum
based on GENOCIDE. Currently under U.S. law, TITLE 18, Part 1, Chapter 50A,
Section 1091, GENOCIDE, veteran Crosby and any other veteran in the Untied
States with one of these coded numbers falls under this law as a victim.
Moreover, Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 118, Section 2441, WAR CRIMES, veteran
Crosby and any other veteran with one of these codes also falls under this
section of law as a victim. v
Once the international community sees the proof of this branding of human
beings with numbers in America, only one thought will be forthcoming, this is
what happened in Nazi Germany, now its going on in America. Who is
responsible for this Holocaust 2, look no further than the Justice System,
controlled by a secret society, the BAR ASSOCIATION and its members, LAWYERS. The
framers of the U.S. Constitution left the word lawyer out of the
Constitution and for good reason. NOW we see that reason, decades of systematic
elimination by a corrupt justice system.<O
It is shameful that State Veteran Agencies have not told veterans about this
coded number, even more shameful is the theft of monies from the Veterans
Administration via the use of the coded number. Brother veterans, thieves
are criminals, and have NO HONOR. If more of you sought legal redress for
this outrageous conduct towards Americas Veterans, something wonderful would
happen. Liberty & Justice For All would become reality. Pledging allegiance
to the flag ends with the words, with Liberty & Justice For All, and many
have died upon the battlefield for just that. Will you Honor those who died
by telling other veterans about this sordid matter? Will you write a letter
to these so called veterans service organizations and ask them why they keep
their mouths shut on this matter ?? Legally, this is the last
opportunity before the world knows about this. Sites like this one have given you
an opportunity to learn about what has been done to you and other veterans,
and thankfully, there are sites like this one.

UPDATE - OCTOBER 17, 2006
Ed Crosby file a complaint with the V.A. Inspector General regarding a
matter about FROSTBITE. The V.A. Inspector General investigated this phony claim
and said, "...the erroneous claim for frostbite was removed from Mr.
Crosby's file as he did not open such a claim ". VA Regional Office Manager at Ft.
Harrison, Mt. , filed this FALSE CLAIM by forging Mr. Crosby's signature
upon official Gov't documents designed to CHARACTER ASSASSINATE a litigant.
Moreover, it was also discovered that the MAIN PIECE OF EVIDENCE in the
lawsuit, a legal transcript submitted to any Federal Court Clerk, had been removed
from the Official File and destroyed. THEREFORE, with the evidence
destroyed, the Courts had no choice but to say, no subject matter jurisdiction.
Criminal complaints have been filed with FBI, nothing done to date.
Lastly, someone in the US Attorneys Office in BILLINGS, Mt. called Ft. Harrison
Regional Office and told them to destroy the transcript and open a phony claim
to discredit Mr. Crosby. V.A. moved one William Peterson, Regional
Office Manager, Ft. Harrison, Mt. to a Regional Office in Kentucky. Can you
believe it, he was not arrested !!!! We have the evidence, where is our
Judicial System ?????
Edwin H. Crosby III THANK YOU.
