Sorry, Bill. What is this, and what does it mean. I assume it means a great deal to US servicemen who were stationed in Germany.

Personally, I'm drawn to the descriptor under the border. I spent a couple of years of my life evaluating government systems and regulating data collection vehicles prior to computers. This example is either badly considered (it is not a form but a poster), or it is badly designed (extreme waste of paper). My boss would have killed me!

Brian,

 I think these were wallet cards. Items like this were required to be on one's person and were checked during inspections, etc.

 SAEDA = "Subversion And Espionage Directed against the Army" -- the number could be called if a soldier thought they had been approached by intel officers from the Eastern Bloc. This particular example looks like it was produced by the Army in Berlin.

Cheers
