His records come up a bit short on his claims;
A search of Eric’s military service indicates that he served in the Navy from July 2, 1991 until February 20, 1993, that is 599 days or 1 year, 7 months, 18 days. Seems a bit short of 22 years of service. We ordered Eric’s military record through a FOIA request. The interesting part is Eric left with a Discharge as an E-1, in the Navy timeline for promotion is E-1 or E-2 in 9 months and from E-2 to E-3 in 9 months. Eric should have left the Navy as an E-3, but he was discharged as an OSSR, Operations Specialist Seaman Recruit (E-1). His records certainly cast doubt on the likelihood of him having an honorable discharge.
Eric’s history of assignments shows Operations Specialist (OS) “A” school then USS Abraham Lincoln. There is no BUD/S or any SEAL Teams assignments.
The folks at Military Phones discovered that Eric’s special training over the last twenty years took place in the local judicial system, but you’ll need to click over to see that part of his records.
