U.S., Military Registers, Marines - Military Dates

The records I am indexing each have two military dates. I understand to use the latest date. What do you use if one date = 11-01-46 and the other date has only 11-46? Do you show the day of 01 or not? The date of rank column includes the day while the date retired column is only month and year.

What I have done on those is enter the full date (11/1/46) in your example. I haven't seen any guidance on that. I just chose to do it since it is the more complete date of the two values that are available.
