United States—Enlisted and Officer Muster Rolls and Rosters, 1916–1939 [Part O]
At the top of the image of a monthly roster, that is shown sideways, it says "Correct as of the last day of...October 1918". Should the Military Day be "31" or should it be left blank ("<BLANK>")?
The batch number is M3K2-FQJ.
To me the " last day of October 1918" would be indexed as October 31, 1918. This subject has came up before with various answers.0
ok. Thank you.0
We’ve been instructed to Ctrl+B <Blank> it.

It is a question of following the contract with the owners of the document. The best answer I have been able to find is to mark the field blank as barbaragailsmith1 has reminded us. It might be frustrating but we need to remember that we just index. The researchers get to make the conclusions.
