Intro Message

My name is Edward. I am new to SOCNET. My purpose here is to investigate the possibility of Stolen Valor, and to verify the credentials and service record of someone, within the company I am doing business with. This person appears to be suffering from either substance abuse or a possible emotional disorder. My friend and I are trying to to determine the best way to help him, even if it means holding him accountable for misrepresenting gus military background.

Please advise.

All the best
Edward

We need claims of service and which unit this person says he was assigned to. You'll get pointed in the right direction. Welcome to SOCNET and good luck.

Hello,

I found this site while searching around the internet for information on overseas contracting. I am a Marine and was active duty 2006-2011. I deployed to Iraq twice and Afghanistan once. My last deployment was with 1/6 in 2010 in Marjah Afghanistan as an EDD handler for the battle of marjah. Recently got through everything for a PSS DOS contract and got my date for training course. I currently work for my local sheriff's office but miss my time overseas. I'm here mainly for information from all of the experienced individuals here. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello! Thanks for adding me to the site. I may have posted here before and forgot about it. Sorry if so. 48 yrold construction worker, Navy-Stg our in 91 under Bush Seniors’s military cut (and a bit of mischief but still got an honorable just missed all the fun) Hoping to connect with a former seal team captain I sat next to during a class and became good friends with. Also hoping to find some info on my late father who passed away in 9/11/2011. I wasn’t raised with him and knew very little about him until his passing when I met the other half of my family. He was Vietnam era Navy 8-9 years. Possibly UDT (step mom said “he was a green beret or something” ) Sister said he had a Trident tattoo on his arm but never spoke of his service or about the tattoo. He was awarded three? bronze stars as a MM. hmmm. Anybody here from that era? Would love the opportunity to find out more about him. Thank you very much

Ive used the “contact administrator” button a few times but have never recieved a reply. Can an admin PM me here?

Thanks

You've been replied to 5 times, plus your password sent 6.

Nothing is wrong with your original account. Do not use this new account to post.

I do not have access to the original email. If its as simple as that, i fucked it up, so be it. Just trying to find a solution.

That is what i have attempted to convey by using the contact links here. Ive used several email addresses and have never had a reply.

Not trying to stir anything up. I just lost my profile. Sucks

I have. Thats the only reason I started a new profile and posted here. I didn’t have any other way to communicate.
This all started because “Crapstash” lost priveleges to post anything. No idea why, I waited a month thinking I was banned. I tried to contact admin. No luck. Then I got locked out when i hit “reset password” , and didn’t have access to the original email I had signed up with. It’s my fault for not updating that email address I had signed up with.

As per SB’s orders, I’ll respond to PMs here but I will not post anymore with this account. Thanks.

I'll say it one more time. You did contact admin and admin replied to you multiple times.

It's not luck, it's something you did.

At this point, unless you have someone who can validate you're crapstash, we're not setting anything up.

Hello everyone.

I am a police officer in a metro area. Been an officer for 9 years. Currently working patrol. Also currently on a county tactical team.

I joined mainly to verify if a frequent flyer in our city is really what he says he is. I also figured this could be a good area to do research for our county team if we need to look something up.

Thanks for accepting me.

I don't remember if I posted a first intro message or not. I am a retired Physician Assistant. How does that saying go, "there are 1500 living Navy SEALS and I have met all 3,000 of them"? something like that. Tonight I met a guy claiming to have been a navy seal in 1968. I mentioned Jump School, and his story was "I went to jump school, but never jumped out of a plane." Here is where it started smelling. He said before he could jump, he was awakened and sent back to his home base on a 737, as the sole passenger.
He never finished jump school. I will post his name under another thread, but would prefer to ask an Admin, so I don't put his name out publicly if he is legit. Can do?

Welcome home Ishmael, a PM to FROG (admin) will get you the answer you seek.

FROG is a SEAL and will remind you of the correct spelling.
