I have not tested this (all my user directories are out of a single 
folder) but can one use the documented set command envirnoment variable 
display options (set /?) to obtain the first (second, third, etc.) 
letter of a username?

C:\>echo %USERNAME%

C:\>echo %USERNAME:~0,1%

C:\>echo %USERNAME:~1,1%
