ID Check

There's a person I'd like to check. He's been coming around lately and claims to be SOAR out of JBLM. I'm assuming the 4th Battalion. He's currently AD so I don't want to put his name out there. I'm former Navy and when I meet someone who claims to be part of an elite group it immediately rises an eyebrow as I have meet a few fakes before. Is there anyone I can PM. Thanks.

Easily verified but how about some details? Is this just "some guy" who mentioned this or is there a point to doing this check other than satisfying your curiousity?

Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

No, not just some guy. We're both of the same nationality and with that our ethic community is rather small even in a big city like Seattle. And with a small community everyone is family. It's the fact that he is telling people that are important to me that he is "Special Operations". If he is legit then be it. If not, and if he is lying then I don't want him around my family and giving them the wrong impression or leading them on. There has been people in the pass with outrageous claims and the people that they are connected to, to only pray on their own people for their own selfish needs. We don't need people like that in our community.

Has he said anything that seems outrageous?

If it's truly that important, send me his name and we'll see.

NWHmoob,
While I understand your concern, keep in mind this is this internet. You could be "anyone". You tell us who you are (via PM if needed)... and we'll see if we can/should assist you.

No one here is going to tell you if someone is an active duty NightStalker without a very compelling reason.

Thank you to all who responded. If he wasn't who he said he was you guys would've called him out already. It's the fact that I have to jump through all these hoops to get a straight answer from you guys I can only assume that he is the real deal. Just like the NightStalker community, everyone here is family and we all have to watch out for each other. It doesn't matter if he's a NightStalker or an ordinary person, a stranger is a stranger and I will continue to have my suspicion until otherwise. Trust is earned, not given. I hope you all can understand my reasoning.

So was he real or a poser? Ain't too many posers in 160 like the SEALs or the Colonels in SF.
