This is what I've got in my satellite table:

Lacrosse 3/USA 133: 97-64A/25017
DSCS 3B-06/USA 134: 97-65A/25019
Navstar 38/USA 135: 97-67A/25030
Trumpet 3/USA 136: 97-68A/25034

Remember that the latest DMSP satellite(DMSP 5D-F14/97-12A/24753) didn't get
a USA number as well.  They used to give it to those satellites.
