About a month ago, a few individuals showed up to comment on Jonn’s Derek Kent Rose article from early June 2012. At least one of these individuals appears to be defending Rose. That individual specifically questioned whether or not the original DD214 for Rose presented in Jonn’s article is genuine or not.
Well, here’s a FOIA response from the National Personnel Records Center on Derek Kent Rose, dated 14 February 2013 (format is downloadable Adobe PDF). For those who are not familiar with the NPRC: that is the Federal activity that has archive responsibility for the Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) for all veterans. In other words: they have his military records. And they consult those records when responding to a FOIA request about an individual.
FOIA responses don’t typically include a DD214. However, they do include dates of service; assignments; units and locations; awards and decorations; and other info. This one includes all of those – and a bit more, if you have the background to understand what’s there.
This new FOIA is 100% consistent with the original DD214 Jonn posted. In particular, it shows the same dates of service, the same decorations, and a punitive discharge (inferred from the fact that the discharge authority is NAMALA and occurred well before the normal end of his enlistment). It also shows the same “lost time” due to confinement (14 Mar to 25 Apr 1997). So yes, “youdontsay” – the original DD214 Jonn posted does indeed appear to be the “real deal”. This appears means Rose appears to be a forger as well as a lying sack of . . . stuff (LSoS).
By the way: there’s a good reason for the old saying “15 will get you 20”, “youdontsay”. In most places in the US, a 15-year-old is legally a child and is thus below the age of sexual consent. Sex between an adult and a 15-year-old is commonly referred to as “statutory rape” – and is a felony sex crime in most places. Ignorance of a partner’s age is generally not a valid defense, either. You’re doing Rose absolutely no favor by telling the world that all he did was get caught “boinking” a 15-year-old girl.
None of this is likely convince anyone who doesn’t already believe Rose is a lying tool and a criminal. But posting this here will provide proof of his actual service – and allow detection of his future lies – in a downloadable form for anyone who meets Rose and wants to check on him.
