VOE from MVM

Gents,

I have run across an issue. For those of us who worked for MVM in 03-05 during the CPA (on the non-classified side) know how everything basically went to poop.

Fast forward to today. Been offered a job for DoS and I'm trying to find a way to verify my employment doing PSD in the CPA era with MVM. I contacted MVM and they literally acted like I was a dinosaur from another era (which I guess I am). No records, nothing. Like they purged their files.

Was there ever a master list or anything of all the guys doing PSD for the CPA? I'm not particularly hopeful, but worth reaching out.

Were you issued a CAC card?

Went through the same thing with SOC-SMG. "You did what in 2004? Ohhhhh...yeah....we don't have any records or anything so...sorry."

I had to verify employment with an old set of orders and pictures.

Would you have anything in old emails?

Massgrunt, about the only email I have left is the reply to my resignation. I got stuck out in the Red Zone with some shady characters with no comms. I told a former 3rd SFG SGM he was an idiot. About 2-3 weeks later he was fired for stealing from the company. Don't think it would be the best email to use. LOL!

Guy,

Never did get a CAC, used my NG CAC the whole time. Funny story I was told at one point by a lady, that there was "No way, I could be in Iraq as a contractor without a duly issued CAC". I told how I had been in and out of Iraq 3 times without it. She was not amused.

Ahhhh, the nuances of working for 1500 a day with an indig team....

I would also look at what travel records you could pull. If you don't have shit in your inbox, it may be worth a call to the airlines you traveled. Most likely they won't have shit either, but it sounds like you will need to turn up every stone in the desert.

You had to have been issued something for the pay they provided to you.

How did you file taxes otherwise?
