    I would really like to get another. IS THIS possible?
    Thanks,

    Zulu36 is right, its easy as pie to get your DD214. Just print it out and sign the thing and it'll come in the mail in days. They tell you weeks, but it was like 2 or 3 days and I had mine. You get the full monty when you order you own records, the FOIA requests gets quite a bit but not as much as if it was your own information... But it DOES have deployments, schools, NEC/MOS, Pay rate and awards etc.

    I'm not, nor have I ever been, in the military...but being a family member I am interested in the Marine Corps and as such have talked to many Marines and sailors as well....

    What I "love" is when someone claiming to be a SEAL or Force Recon or whatever...doesn't even know RANK STRUCTURE! I had someone try to tell me that he was a SEAL instructor and I said, "Oh really that's outstanding...what rank are you?" He said Master Chief...I said, "Wow you're an E7?" He said yeah. :/

    I said, "Next time you want to impersonate a Navy SEAL you might want to google Naval rank structure dumb ***."

    I'll say it again -- Ain't a SEAL if he doesn't say "I ain't got time to bleed."

    Funny stuff here...I used to work in the weapons industry and every third guy in his forties was a RECCE and a former member of the 32 battalion...LOL. The best way to muck him up is when he is with his friends or gf and you ask him about callibers and set up the stage.
    *ME: WOW...You must've been knee deep in the kak.
    *Chop: Ja, It was hectic.
    *ME: You use those .50 cal R1's second generation? those things are awesome! The 32 used alot of those classified weapons.
    *Chop: Ja (looks like around to the people around with a I'm the man attitude) My favourite weapon.
    *ME: Thats interesting since they dont exist! (I walked off and the effect was done, true story)



    *South African meaning of CHOP:diot (See Also Doos, Plank).

    well considering certain restrictions... Semper Gumby...
    I'm glad you have enthusiasm and determination to become a US Marine. You'll need all that to get through PI or Pendleton. However, when referring as to "Navy SEAL" please make sure its typed in all Caps.. Just as we Capitalize "M" in Marine. Its a matter of respect for our Green (Marine) and web footed brothers (SEAL). Thanks..

    Good day...
    I didn't read through everything but I'll comment anyway.

    "How to spot a phony SEAL'....one that boasts about being one is a good clue.

    It is my life experiences those who boast the most have actually done the least.
    Similar to the cliche 'believe half of what we see and none of what we hear'.

    That's my take on the original question.

    Used that rule as an LEO and still use it today, it works well.

    I can't believe I found this phony Navy frogman.
    He wasn't even hiding the fact that he isn't a Navy Frogman...

    Seal or not

    Saw ex-Mn Gov. Jesse Ventura on TV yesterday saying he is an ex Seal, I have a friend who says that Ventura was UDT and not a Seal, anyone know the true story?

    He was in UDT Team-12 and was not a SEAL, although some UDT people did serve in Vietnam. Ventura did not serve in Vietnam, although he did serve during the last few years of Vietnam. He says he calls himself a SEAL since all the UDT teams were merged into SEAL teams and most people now never heard of UDT, but know what SEALS are.

    His birth name, and name he served in the Navy under is James George Janos.

    Read two bios one said he was UDT one he was SEAL one said he served in VN the other never said. The only thing I could or would say it is funny that none of this ever came out during him running for Gov. and it would something I would think the one running against him would have looked at, or maybe not just thinking.
