How did you choose your TK ID?

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming most folks will choose their birthday, some other cool-looking digits.<br><br>

For a while now, i've been considering a tattoo... This may be my perfect chance to combine my want for a stormtrooper tattoo, and my daughter's birth date (hopefully my new TK number) in one image.<br><br>

Interested to hear your ID origins :)

There's a couple of these threads floating around already but I choose my ID 82573 because I was in the 82nd Airborne Division and served with the 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment. Just a nod to my military service.

Ahhh, 3BCT, 4 years I've been here now. I don't think they will ever let me leave.

 

Anyways I used my daughters birthdate for my ID

TK85421, if you look at the numbers on a phone the letters are 85=TK and 421 doesn't need explaining 85421 ;)

 

I started a thread some years ago http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/22807-what-does-your-tk-id-represent/

TK-51500, I'm a fan of Van Halen so chose 5150 and added a zero.

Small world, I ETS'd March 2014 so we were there at the same time. What BN are you in? 1 year basic/AIT/Airborne and the other 8 entirely with 5/73. Never changed duty stations. I did re-enlist once though. Deployed to Iraq in 06-07 and again 08-09.

Zip code. Boring, right?

 

Nope. Not at all.

Zip code also.<br>

But after I got my number, I thought of a good way to create one that would be unique for each TK. <br>

Using the number for the letters of each TK 's initials. The letter "A" =1 on up to "Z" =26. <br>

That could even work for assigned numbers in an actual military situation, as they would all be unique. And if any 3 letter combinations ( first, middle, last names) did repeat, a 1 and so on could be added to the end of the repeat ones. <br>

Mine would have been TK-23137. Still available. And I actually like it better than my zip ode.

My two favorite calibers..... .223 and .308

So, 22308 it is!

Nice. Then I should have picked 22250 :D

One of my favorite characters from the movies and EU books is Wedge Antilles. In ANH, he was Red 2. When you change the letters to numbers (1-a, etc.), Red 2 becomes 18542. A tribute to one of my favorite, if the favorite, character.

I have a list of 5 numbers I´m considering, up to this moment all of them are free. So when the time is due I´ll check back on them, then  most likely ask my friend who got me into all this to pick one - and yeah that´ll be it ^^

If he´s lucky I ´ll pick one myself but most likely I´ll be too stunned to think ;)

Whilst joking around and stuff I pick my custom costume signature and my birthday ^^

I did a variation on what Chills did with his...

 

If you put 11146 into a calculator, and turn it upside down...  GHILL (lower case Ls).

Might have been better with 77146, but I like the lower number.

My badge #....with a 1 at the end since it was a low number that was already taken.
