This will either go pretty quickly or very slowly. Another one from my old Crack the Case, this one was in the easy category....but I've always thought it was pretty difficult.

A young guy (let's call him Seth) wakes up on the side of a desert road with a bruise on his head. He has no possessions or car, and realizes he can't remember anything about himself. The blow to the head must have given him amnesia.
He looks about for clues and notices a tattoo on his left arm. There are three rows of letters:

Eb - Ob
wsn
SWIS S

What happened? What does it all mean?

Is he near a town or city? Can he see buildings from where he is?
Is there anything on the ground near him?

Is he near a town or city? Probably, but irrelevant. Can he see buildings from where he is? No
Is there anything on the ground near him? Just the road and cacti.
And Wiz's email was correct.

Well if you flip the words they say "90-93, usm, S SIMS." Is this relevant?

So is the man S. Sims?
And do the numbers 90-93 mean the year span 1990-1993?
Is the 'usm' initials for something? United States something? Military?

US Marine Corps? Though that'd be USMC, I believe.

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**********************************************************************
Poor Seth Sims is an ex-marine who took an unfortunate head bump after being mugged in the Nevada desert. Being so delirious, he didn't realize that looking down at his tattoo meant it was upside-down. After realizing this, he remembered his name and that he served from 90-93.
