Michael Yon is busy stirring up his minions to incite them to kill me (yes, at least one of them over there has been quoted as wanting to “kill him stop that gean pool”). I’ve been blocked for months from Yon’s Facebook page, so it’s been reported to me.
He’s upset because because he’s been picking on TSO again and I sent him the picture from his FOIA that I’ve had for months. There was nothing in there that was really earth-shattering, so I didn’t bother with it. But since he’s hinting that I broke into 10th Special Forces Group headquarters to get that picture which he claims was taken just prior to some secret mission he was going on, I figured I’d better show him how I do my business.
Here’s the FOIA form on him;
Here’s the photo that he says I broke into 10th SFG’s HQs to steal. Anyone in the military in the 80s would recognize it as a standard ID card photo;
Here’s his assignments for his whole 4 years and 11 months of service;
It looks like out of his 4 years and 11 months of service, he spent 2 years and 3 months as a student. Then he spent 14 months at 10th Group in Ft Devens, MA, then 17 months at 10th Group at Bad Toltz in Germany before he was discharged.
And his awards and schooling;
See? It’s all pretty boring. But there it is, it all came from the National Personnel Records Center in St Louis, not from one of my countless ninja assaults on a Special Forces Headquarters somewhere.
Yeah, I know, that’s pretty boring, too. I’m sorry. But it’s Sunday and I’m trying to watch reruns of Maggie Q in Nikita on Netflix.
As the Wikipedia page on Michael Yon quotes him “If a writer wants to make money, he should avoid truth and tell people what they want to hear. Yet to win the war, tell the truth.” I guess he opted for making money.
