    I have my Dad's service records. In amongst some of the acronyms is this RUGFZ. It appears in the sentence: "Posted to Draft India? RUGFZ and temp attached to 3 cpy I.C.Depot."
    I can decipher most of that, the puzzle is India and RUGFZ. Dad was in the FSS, Field Security Service, serving in Africa Italy and Europe as BAOR attached.

    It means everyone with that code was on the same draft going to the same place.
    The letters themselves do not mean anything.
