I put it this way...he's told me things and 6-8 months later it was on Fox news. As in, he was there when it happened and us 'normal' people didn't hear anything until half a year later.
Then he's in violation of all the NDA's he's signed in his career. He's probably lying to you about being Delta or even SF.

That's why I said he can get in trouble for it. But no, he's not lying about being Delta or SF...he's also got many amazing pictures from his 20+ year career with SF.


I can tell you this too, I've never seen anybody in the military with the amount of disposable income he has. Just off the top of my head, he has a BMW SUV, a BMW car, a Quad-Cab Chevy Z71, a Camaro SS, a Mustang Boss, and like 4 quads...none of which are over maybe 2 years old. His 2 daughters wanted a "playhouse", so he goes and buys a brand-new mobile home and moves it onto his property by his house and decorates it for girls and packs it with toys.

I don't know any grunts making that kind of bank, nor have I ever heard of any. For a guy who kills people and blows **** up for a living, his bank account is pretty well-off.

Only Navy and US Coast Guard are allowed to tryout for SEAL training, The only way possible would be for him would be to leave the Army and to join the Navy and go through the SEAL Training but then after all that they only allow guys 18-28 years of age to even tryout to become SEALs. He's most likely lying about one or the other!

It's not impossible. Hell, there are plenty of rangers who are barely old enough to drink beer.

I've know several servicemen who did cross-branch transfers (had a Launcher Chief in my old MLRS Battery back in the late 80's who was a former Navy weapons tech), but you're right that the Ranger-to-SEAL path would be a convoluted and unlikely one at best. Given that the SEALS turn down something like 80% of applicants from within the Navy and CG as it is and have waiting lists for the school, I'd find it even more odd that they would be looking to the Army for potential Candidates.

Sure...but as I said earlier in this thread I am not military so you have to be more specific in what you want him to provide.

Never said it was impossible but it is unlikely!
