SWCC Verification

Hello Everyone, I work for a law enforcement agency in Southern California as a training coordinator (I'm a civilian, not sworn). We recently took on a new person in our unit who is claiming to have served in SWCC from 2001 to 2005. He tells pretty outlandish stories and interjects SWCC into nearly every conversation. It would be bad enough if he was just spouting off in our office, but he gives briefings and training classes to new members of our department. During these briefings he always tells 'war stories' about being 'downrange' and 'under fire' and serving in 'special ops'. If possible, I would like to verify whether or not this person served in SWCC. I can provide his name, years of claimed service and the boat team he claims to have served with in a private message. I thank you very much for your time.

Respectfully,

SP

SP, I have a few videos on Youtube. I've taken the unofficial stance of outing our illustrious phony SWCC in about a similar capacity as Don Shipley. PM me with some info and I'll get verification real quick. I can either give you some info on how to handle it on your end or I can take on the task of putting together a package and lighting this guy up...proper!

Anyone on the west coast serving during those periods can definitely verify whether or not he was out there. I have the connection to verify whether or not he actually went to/graduated from SWCC school. (Solid connection!) when I do verifications i do it in triplicate to make sure I'm not fucked up. but SWCC being such a small community...we are able to do it at a much lower level. If need be, I'll order up an FOIA and throw true American fact at him and steal his fucking soul!!!

I believe he is a legit 12 guy based on some mutual FB friends and now I recognize the face. As for his claims, I don't know.

Thank you everyone, I truly appreciate your time and efforts. I don't want to out him publicly as he is a sworn peace officer and I don't want to compromise his personal security. If his claims are false we'll handle it in-house. But it looks like his claims could be true. It would be great if he's legit, I dig happy endings.
