You may remember Zachary Nicholas Smith from a few weeks ago. Well, it seems that he’s totally legit in regards to his military service. Initially, we said he’d only served for 22 days. But his lawyer sends his actual DD214. First his lawyers’ letter;
And the real DD214;
You can tell it’s totally legit because he served in the 1-73 Airborne, which is at Fort Benning according to the DD214. I’m sure you’ve all heard of it. The DD214 is also on a November 1988 version of the form which was already out of use by the time I retired. Apparently, he also attended the “Airborne Jump School” as opposed to Non-Airborne Jump School, I suppose. You can also tell it’s legit because instead of a regulation cite in the “Separation Authority” block, it lists the 1-73 ABN again. And, oh, yeah, the “Command to which transferred” is “Unlisted” – that’s totally legit, too. So you see, we were totally wrong about Zach, he’s the super-duper-killer dude suffering from PTSD like he says. Oh, yeah, he has PTSD because it says so right there on the DD214, if you don’t believe it.
