Hello,
A friend I went to high school with was going around telling everyone that he was SWCC. I confronted him then and he had stopped. No he is saying he was SWCC to get clients at the gym he works for. Again I asked for some information and he just tries to change the subject. I am about 98% sure he was never SWCC as he went to a helo squadron after basic and was medically discharged sometime in his third year. If he was never SWCC I would like to expose him. If he was I would like to apologize to him.

Is there a SWCC registry. I know I was able to ask when stationed at SDVT-1 for SEALS, but didnt know if SWCC has their own registry.

In a nutshell, there is a database. (Thanks for attracting my attention bm2bob!!!) bob already sent out the feelers and I am actively checking with the holder of the database.
Out of curiosity, because this sounds like a familiar story, what part of the country are we talking about and what kind of gym?

He still claims to have been SWCC. I sent to information to one of the news channels in Clearwater. I haven't heard back from them. I will give them a week and then go to the next station.
I gave him the chance to come clean but he refuses to do so.

He can claim whatever he wants, but that doesnt mean he is not a poser. Just for some humor, Id love to hear him explain why there is no record of his existence anywhere in the community.

Ninjas don't do boats, they run undetectable across the water leaving no foot prints.

Your local, or his local news will not waste their time eith this inless he was swindling money under the pretense of his secret SOCOM life. The info we give you is nothing compared to a full FOIA profile research. Nobody in the news cares about a dude lying to get a piece of ass. Now...if someone were to call him and make him famous...

He was using it to get clients at the gym he was a trainer at. Apparently I wasn't the only one who contacted the news about him.
