Great!

Question 3. What name was on a man's identification badge?

Answer: "From the moment of their induction, the identities of the recruits remain a carefully guarded secret." "The students are known by officers and fellow recruits merely as student "Jack" or student "Fred" or whatever name has been assigned them."
