Verify some CV claims

I have a CV being shopped and some of it sounds a little too high speed.

If anyone can assist, the specific group and ODA mentioned are:

3d Special Forces Group ODA 336, 330, 335
5th SF Group ODA 573, 574 (HALO)

Never really had anyone insert number of kills on a mission in their resume before. :)

"Kills" on a resume is unprofessional, unless one is applying to be a cartel hitman.

I would need more info to know if it is bogus.

Was there another ODA added to the companies?

We also had 6 ODAs in the 70's 80's and 90s. Some times we had empty teams to keep other teams pulsed up when we were short.

SF has always been fluid in regards to TOE and manning.

But it was still there on paper.

They did go down to 5 teams around 1977 +/- for a couple of years.

The 6th team came back around 1979ish. ODA 576 became the Gab Detachment for a few years.
