He may or may not have been in the 82d Airborne Division. His Facebook contains a picture of him that he claims was taken in 1978, but the rank on the uniform indicates that he was an E-4 Specialist, but he never went beyond E-3 Private First Class in his four years on active duty and seven years in the National Guard. His records aren’t clear on his assignments during his active duty time.
It is clear from his records, however, that he was not special forces-trained, nor was he a school-trained recruiter. His FOIA says that he completed Jump School, but it doesn’t record his jump wings in the awards.
His records also say that he was in Saudi Arabia for Desert Storm, but there are no awards listed for his presence there. The 72nd MP Company of the Nevada National Guard did deploy to Desert Storm and they had responsibility for Enemy Prisoner of War Camps (EPW) 401 and 403, so he could have been there.
