HELP!! How do I find out if someone was actually in the military?
So I have an acquaintance with a plethora of insane combat stories. Stolen valor at its finest. I know they’re completely full of crap...and I don’t even think they were in the military to begin with. For my own piece of mind, I’d like to know that my gut feeling is accurate.

Anyone know how I can go about verifying that said individual was never in the military...without hiring a private investigator or paying an assload of money for a background check?

Just to call him a liar? Why not unfriend him instead, do you want a liar for a friend?

No. Won’t work. For the record...I’m already well-versed in military jargon and acronyms...as is said person in question. No amount of questioning will prove that this guy wasn’t in the service. I’m looking for a way to verify ON PAPER that he was never in the armed services. ON PAPER, damnit!!!

We had the Stolen Valor law for a short while then it was struck down in court.

I was told by the guy that runs one of the stolen valor websites that the government actually has NO database of who got medals or not.

You would have to get a copy of their military records.

If it's a scam talk to him privatly, some people can't take the fall publicly and would rather die than admit they lie, besides being dangerous.

PS: You will have to keep checking by date ranges. For example, if you believe they were in the military today, leave today's date. If you think they were discharged in 2010, you would have to try each month, before you will get a hit.

I had to use this site for one of our employees claiming service, hence my advice.

Re: HELP!! How do I find out if someone was actually in the military?
we had a couple long hair hippies in our flight and of course they draw immediate attention.

The DI run over to them first..want to know ..do you have a girlfriend.. hippie say yes, he has a girlfriend...then DI says you are a fucking liar..I gonna ask you again..do you have a girlfriend? hippie says yes again..then DI calls for new DI to come over...DI says to DI, I just asked this guy if he has a girlfriend and he told me yes...new opinion DI says He is lying to you. No matter what long hair gets fucked with.

And then haircut day comes..I will take a little off the sides and the barber gives you straight down the middle crewcut..no hair for you. Then of course DI wants to get new look at the long hairs..and DI ends up laughing and remarking how stupid they look now

It's important for us to know which branch he was in in order for us to help you. You can know all the "jargon" you want, there are certain things only a true service member would know.

all clothes in one locker had to be folded up in 6 inch squares..which is fine, but we not allowed to use a ruler, eventually somebody figure out how to do it.

But one airman asked..sir, how are we supposed to know if our underwear is folded in 6 inch squares...DI pretend to think it over and keep saying ...6 inches, 6 inches..anybody here not got 6 inches...well one guy raised his hand..DI eyes light up like full christmas tree...he say, Thacker you not got 6 inches..and Thacker say no sir..DI asks, Thacker..you got a girlfriend and Thacker says no sir...DI laughs and say you never will have
