Someone sent us Mike Sleeper. He has a cool man cave in his garage. Apparently he collects campaign memorabilia…including his own. We have reports of him claiming to have been deployed to Iraq during Desert Storm.
Mike also likes to tell people he was a Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment during conversations. He backs up those kind of claims with pictures on his FB profile.
It sounds like some actual Desert Storm veterans found discrepancies in his stories.
We thought a little Trivia of our own would be nice, so we ordered his official records through a FOIA request.
That one page alone tells us all we need to know. Not a Ranger, No deployment to Desert Storm and he was discharged after a few years as a Private. He spent his time in Alaska as an 11B Grunt and he was not a Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment. His only award listed is the Army Service Ribbon. It appears the Army got tired of dealing with Pvt Sleeper and sent him back home early.
Private Sleeper should probably come clean with some people who are under a false impression that he is something that he is not. Particularly the kids in his school district.
Mike Sleeper called me. We had a frank conversation. He has an opportunity to come forward and set the record straight. Rarely do we post all the information we have on a case in order to give people an opportunity to man up. Mike is insistent that he served with the 75th for a period of time. That very well could be, but its not in his official records we were provided. What is a fact is Mike was never a Ranger.
As I stated in the blog, we have reports that he has made claims we know are not true.
