Mate, haven't you been warned about hanging around at KAF picking up strange business cards?

I have never heard of them and I thought I'd seen every medical company out. I have a couple of friends working airfield emergency services there now and will reach out. They weren't around in Jul/Aug '08 when I EXFILLED from KAF.

Wait out.

Interesting that "jamesdean" has been back to the site since I deleted his post but didn't have the time to post an introduction.

So "james" when you read this, I expect you to identify who "we" is in regards to the "we" or "would use them again", in your post I deleted, or don't bother posting anywhere on this forum again.

We've seen this type of posting before and it usually tells us something entirely different than what you think you achieved.

I'm prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt but it's on you to prove you aren't a shill playing a game for the company.

Thank you.

I have heard a little about them today here in Kabul. One of my clients knows the owner. Helo transport and Med services from what I understand and has already received one good sized contract and is shopping for more. This is hearsay through the grapevine, but a pretty reliable source.

Hope it helps

I receieved a PM on this same subject just yesterday. I pointed the poster in your direction for your original source. My OP TEMPO has been pretty high; therefore, I have yet to get a chance to track down his office.

Just so everyone is aware....this is the fourth query on this company, or those involved with it, over the past week by folks in theater with little more than "I heard", third party responses.
Information that is needed is first hand folks. I have a personal long tab friend in theater also looking for info on them as he has stuck his neck out already on behalf of some of Westextactcal's employees.
Let's keep focus folks - there are guys in the box where this info can affect them as the warfighter.

Which is why I state that it is hearsay and second hand.

USSFPA: Thank you for your backing and support in this matter.

ALCON: The problem that myself and USSFPA's friend (whom I have spoken with) have run into is the lack of concrete verification of facts on this company and the individual who runs it (both current and historical, to include military service and PA status). They have made a presence in and around the RC South AOR by passing out business cards and pushing the company's abilities (while at the same time asking for favors). Multiple concerns have been brought to me by both US and NATO forces that have been approached by the individual(s) in question.

Any help with this matter is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Based on the lack of input, I feel comfortable in stating there is probably an issue.

Add "jamesdean" apparently only registering to be a sock puppet to talk up the company and there is more than a bit of evidence to support this.

I'm prepared to be wrong but, something isn't right. The reach from here is too vast not to have at least one member with direct experience.

There is also a cricket symphony on the other site.

Very unusual indeed.

The info is starting to come in:

A certain Doyle Dwight Jordan aka Doc claims to be the owner of WESTEX. He is the person behind the mini gun on this page http://www.westextactical.com/aircraft.html

medic-gunner.jpg

.
He claims that hes a former SF soldier and medic from 7th Group. None of the people that I have contact with from 7th Group know him, or anything about him.

He claims to be a licensed Physicians Assistant (PA) and hands out prescription drugs on request. I have not been able to find him on websites listing qualified PAs.

He does not own or have access to a single aircraft. The pictures posted on his website were taken while he worked as a PSD member for USPI in Kandahar.

Thanks.

I will be swinging by to see USSFPA's buddy tomorrow, then I will make it a priority to go visit this guy and get first-hand info from the source, to include service dates and ODA assignments. Will report back ASAP.
