This story is so ridiculous I can't believe anyone would even believe it. It doesn't even have little inconsistensies, it speaks pure blasphemy.
GOOD GRIEF, that guy's story is so wrong in so many areas. First they ask him how he became a "Special Forces Ranger." Riiiight, he never even
bothers to correct them on the fact that the Rangers and Special Forces are two entirely separate Spec Ops units. He claims: "I got picked to go to
Ranger School" right out of Basic. BS. You do not get "picked" to go to Ranger School right out of Basic. Also, going to Ranger school DOES NOT get
you into the Ranger Regiment. Ranger Indoctrination Program does that, and once you get into the Regiment, they train you up to go to Ranger School.
Otherwise, you go to a regular unit out of Basic and then can go to Ranger School, but then you go back to your unit.
Then the big kicker is how he brags about his medals. NO soldier, I repeat, NO SOLDIER, especially one who has supposedly seen torture and been forced
to do it, EVER
, brags about his medals. And purple hearts, "half of which" he can't remember!? GIVE ME A FUDGING
BREAK!!! The most
purple hearts ever awarded to one person was 4 to 8, and that was Vietnam, meaning at most this guy could have gotten three, which is HIGHLY unlikely.
Good grief, what a liar. And a Bronze Star? Yeah, uh-huh, okay, sure. AND ALL THIS AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF ONLY 22!? MOST GUYS IN WORLD WAR II AND
VIETNAM WEREN'T THAT DECORATED IN TEN-TWENTY YEARS OF MILITARY SERVICE.
So, let me get this straight. Let's suppose the guy went through Ranger School AFTER he got to a regular unit. He can't have gone in as a RIP
contract (guaranteed a shot at the Ranger Regiment right after AIT because he was in trouble with the law, which will disqualify you). So he graduated
Basic, went to AIT (Advanced Individual Training), got to a Regular unit, served, then worked his way to Ranger School. He went through Ranger School,
went back to his unit, he also would have had to go to Airborne School, it's required for the Regiment, then worked his way up to the Ranger
Regiment. Then he went and served sixteen months in Iraq with the 3rd Ranger Battalion supposedly (I don't even think Rangers deploy that long), and
somehow won all those medals in that amount of time? BULL. BIG TIME BULL.
Maybe if he was 35 or 40 years-old and had done all that, but no one does it in 4 or 5 years. The earliest he could have enlisted would have been 17.
And he hasn't got any benefits? YEP, sure, uh-huh, okay, a HIGHLY-DECORATED "war hero," who was part of an elite Special Operations unit of the
U.S. military, under Special Operations Command, who won the darn BRONZE STAR, for crying out loud, has not gotten ANY benefits or help, okay sure.
The Regiment is a very close brotherhood and they take care of their own if they need to.
A member of the Ranger Regiment is above all PROFESSIONAL, and they speak in a professional manner. It's one thing to make a few typos, it's another
thing to speak with such poor grammar. No Ranger speaks like that. And from what I can see, he's not even wearing his beret correctly.
The Ranger Regiment is one of the most elite military units on Earth, the kinds of men with the guts to make it through that training aren't dumbos,
and the kind who make it through Ranger School for D*MN-sure aren't that stupid and unprofessional. Ranger School is a leadership school, and I've
known guys personally who went through it. You will not meet such professional men.
I notice he said he was a member of the "3rd Ranger Battalion." Gee, that's it? No mention of his company, his squad, platoon?
Even if this guy really served, he's lying through his teeth, and apparently doesn't have a clue what he's even saying. BTW, DD 214's can be
faked. And if a guy like this, that decorated, really was speaking out with true credentials, believe you me, it would be all over the news.
