Theoretically possible if he just loved jumping. I've never heard of a unit jumping that much. My grandfather did cause he's crazy about flying. Wasn't airborne was a mp jumped once a week 50 times in a year cause he wanted to and they let him. 90 years old no discs left in his back. It was nearly a funeral when he sold his last plane (piper cub) at 84. Man just loves to fly.Military has people doing things that are not exciting, but those are support jobs.
With out the support jobs, military would not work.
this guy who claims to be SF Officer said he also had 130+ jumps in 4 years service.
Seem like a huge amount of parachute jump in for years of military, and two of those in RVN.
Huh? What did I do or say?OP, You obviously read a lot of books? We VN Vets can and do police our own. FYI: Many cases of screwed up DD-214 records from the Vietnam war. So back the eff back off with the heroic I've read 'Stolen Valor' BS. To the other Vets here, sorry.
^^^^^^^^^^Let me start with a disclaimer. My biggest claim to fame is being one of the first guys to enlist for 212th Artillery Group at Ft. Lewis, WA., November 1st, 1971. Beyond that, I stuck it out until I retired in 1992. In between, I did the assignments, did the schools, and did the best job I could, so I'm no hero, it was just something I did. All of us have stories we tell. All of us also have stories we don't tell. Those are the stories we share only with the guys who were there.
Special Forces, SEALS, Delta, they're the same as the rest of us. There are stories they tell and others they don't. Most don't go out of their way to advertise their exploits, they don't brag, because in many cases what they do or did we will never hear about. They weren't chosen just for their skills; they were also selected for their ability to keep a secret. They don't need to impress anyone with war stories, because the people it means the most to already know.
I can't prove anything about this guy, but if he has to profess his heroics to anyone who will listen, he's probably not one.
Have this guy who claime he was SF Officer in Vietnam.
Stories do not add up, know there is SF Association, he is not member.
Would assume Army keeps records of those who made it throught training, and graduated.
Looking for Database 1960 - 1964, point me too if it is public domain.
