Vietnam and combat question

Is it possible to have joined the Army in April 1977 and have served in Vietnam and see combat?

I thought we left in April 1975 after the fall of Saigon.

Ask him what his MOS was. If he doesn't know what an MOS is, he's full of sh!t.

Ask him if his Military Records are SEALED, by CIA?

So.... did you (original poster) ever find out if the guy was / is legitimate?

I know a couple guys (well, haven't seen them in years) who talked a lot about their "service", but there seemed to be a LOT of holes in their stories. Friends and I believe they did serve, but not to the extent of their stories.

The guys who I know for a fact served do not talk a lot about their service.

Never understand stolen valor.
Service or otherwise, so easy to check em out.

Most hero's I know, can't tell their own story.

I was drafted in '73.
They weren't sending anyone over there then.
(not that I was aware of)
