It's great that you had the courage to post this; coming across info like this i would never shared it, except for very close friends.
But don't worry, those who have ears to hear, they are hearing you.
Thank you for a great post; S&F

Hoax, if the guy was a retired 1 star general, he wouldn't use the new slang "convo" in a conversation. The OP uses this slang but I don't believe a retired general would use that jersey shore type of slang. It sounds ridiculous.

Great fiction but in the very beginning you made two statements relating to this persons military background that were false. The first never heard of a C140 military transport and second you mentioned flag level ranks. This man was in the airforce so you claim but "flag level ranks" pertain to the navy rank sructure. Correct me if I'm wrong on both counts.
In some countries, such as the United States and India, it may apply to all armed forces, not just the navy. This means generals can also be considered flag officers. en.wikipedia.org...
The C-140 was built to meet a US Air Force requirement for a utility transport. With swept wings and tricycle landing gear, it was used to accomplish the combat flight inspection and navigation (C-FIN) mission. The US Air Force bought a total of 16 JetStars as C-140As and -Bs, the first of which was delivered in late 1961. The C-140 is a light high-speed transport low wing monoplane with the sweptback wings and an arrow-shaped tail assembly.
The JetStar won the Air Force competition and in that service is known as the C-140. Production of the original JetStar ended in 1973; however, an improved version known as the JetStar II, powered with four Garrett TFE 731 turbofan engines of 3700 pounds thrust each, was offered by Lockheed in 1976. Production of the type ended late in 1978, at which time a total of 160 JetStar aircraft had been built.
