I  found that I needed to be in the 'serial' group rather than 'dialout'.

I have added myself to the dialout group, but I still need to manually do a chmod on /dev/ttyUSB0 in order to avoid the permissions error.  It is not a big problem to do this, but I thought that if I were in the dialout group, that would allow me to use the serial port without the chmod.  Can anybody tell me what might be going on?
