    Hello all, if you take a class from a Vet that says he is all high speed make sure you ask to see a copy of his DD-214....if the instructor is legit they will have no problem showing the DD-214, with social security number redacted of course.

    If any instructor tells you that thier record is classified......well that's your first combat indicator of BS!!!!!

    I don't understand.....

    A civilian doesn't know squat about a DD214 or what should be on one and vets can spot a fraud pretty quickly....

    Ask a Vet would be the easiest way to verify.

    Let me explain......a guy in Conroe was charging $200 a person for tactical classes based on his 18D and Ranger batt experience. Turns out he washed out of 14S school did 2 years as a med hold and got out on a med discharge. When confronted he stated his real DD-214 was classified and the copy I had of his was a cover.

    Sorry V-Tach I should have explained what I was talking about better. As far as I know civilians can read the word Ranger on any sheet of paper

    DD214 all the way. I can see quickly their enlistment dates, specialty codes, (mos) re-enlistment codes, and duty stations with dates.

    Before I took my FIL to the VA years ago, because he was having some legit issues, he had always told me he had done 2 tours in Nam.
    Well, he has been known to bull shit me before, so I had him dig out his 214 before I took him there and it was straight up RVN, 2 tours

    a vet knows what to look for.

    I understand now........

    My DD214 just states AFSC was 43130C, 43150D ect...........Doesn't say in words that I was a Master Crew Chief, or a cook.........and that I have an Honorable Discharge....

    IIRC mine has my AFSC, 811, Security Specialist with 50, which is your highest skill level reached in that career field. 81150

    I deployed twice, but mine says nothing about that. Is it supposed to? It just has my duty stations, if I remember right.

    But to your point....if he is misrepresenting his service and his qualifications for monetary gains, yes he should be called out on it....imho...
