That's a player's veteran status, or in other words the number of previous Battlefield games they've played and linked to their current EA account.

Thanks, where is this documented? – Slomojo Sep 5 '10 at 11:27

"Fixed veteran rank number not showing up in ingame scoreboard" ... yep, sounds like it. Thanks Lee. – Slomojo Sep 8 '10 at 6:40
