How can I tell if someone is lying about being a private military contractor?

0

Long story brief is that I work with a man who says he was obviously a contractor and has been in four “combat zones”. I and the like, are like 99. 9% certain he is full of shit yet I was wondering if any kind of real contractors current or even former know any queries I could ask that would create his lies crumble much more? Like how Marines (I am USMC Vet 2015-2019), Army, Navy etc, all of us have a lot of the same encounters and questions we can inquire people to know if they are lying down.

He or she admitted that he never offered but of course wanted to. Using the PMC “career” with 18, which already leaps out as bullshit due to the fact I just dont see a location like Blackwater (academi), or any type of other legit PMC corporation hiring a kid with ABSOLUTELY NO experience and when I state zero experience I do not mean just lack of military/LE experience… I’m talking such as never even had a work yet level of experience. This individual covers this up simply by saying his uncle (a Marine) got him the work; I have also heard your pet say the same uncle began his own PMC company plus hired him and that just how he got in. The particular combat zones are generically described as “Africa” for FEMA convoys or some clips like that, the “middle east”, and oddly enough the only particular location he says is Brand new Orleans after Katrina. Which usually also doesn’t makes sense thinking of age. Im 29 within two weeks and he two or three yrs older than I. The actual storm ended Aug 31 2006. So you’re telling me personally you were 15/16/17 years old functioning as a PMC after Storm Katrina? lol

Frustrating Hitting a Peak

I really don’t know exactly what else to do at this point aside from post here an anecdote to show how cruel lifestyle can be…

Me to the VA: Hey. Just want to reach out and once again let you guys know that We are appealing your decision for the millionth time to take away my GI Bill as I have a company connected disability and even experienced the bill for a while before you decide to guys decided 2 years back to take it away from me personally because I apparently “don’t qualify” for it. I feel your debt me for the previous two years I have been in school and, specially in this pandemic era, wish you will do what’s correct.

Post 9/11 / CH33 benefits problem

Good evening almost all,

Excellent very time sensitive plus particular situation. I just obtained out of active duty status within mid July and are about to start classes in the long run of August but I simply received my certification notice from the VA and observed a huge problem. My college requires very early transaction for classes (2 a few months before they start) therefore i applied for classes and the advantages while I was still ADVERTISEMENT.

They will think I’m still service and aren’t giving me personally the housing allowance that is the seminal reason We felt comfortable getting out plus going to school in Ca. I’m going to give phone calls to the school and the VETERANS ADMINISTRATION tomorrow but I need to understand if this situation ever occurred to any of you and in case you were able to rectify it with time. Thanks in advance

The VA & back pain

0

So in 2012 We hurt my back in Afghanistan. I was 24yrs old at that time & I am still coping with back pain. The VIRTUAL ASSISTANT has taken xrays & MRI’s and say that they can not really see anything incorrect other than some low hard drive space and some arthritis. It is said they don’t see something that needs surgery nor exactly what would cause me to stay pain for how long I have been in pain. I have performed PT, electric stem, supplements (i hate taking supplements & do NOT want to turn out to be addicted nor dependent on them), acupuncture, steroid shot and yet here I am, 11pm lounging awake in bed bc the back hurts. Does anybody think that the VA might be down playing my damage? Maybe bc they do not want to pay for the actual therapy i need or am i simply over thinking this? We are half tempted to go visit a civilian doctor & notice what they say. Just fed up with being in pain bc this effects my sleep & my relationships & deficiency of sleep causes other problems. I cannot get a medical cannabis card bc I am the nurse & it’s nevertheless illegal for us.

Is anyone aware of a VA service that will pick you up from having surgery?
