    Hi Bill,

    The first documents says that Poletayev received military booklet (voyenny bilet) nr. GI-062092 on 9 Dec 1968 by the military commissariat of the Lenin Raion, city of Chisinau. He was then living on 6 Kavkazskaya Street, apartment 1. Signed by the chief of the 3rd section, Major Kostenko, on 9 Dec 1968.

    The second doc is a "Check card" (kontrolnaya kartochka) for the military booklet and lists name, personal number, rank, and year and place of birth.

    The last two scans are his wartime service record, the predecessor of the one with photo you showed earlier.
