- in Wonderland, with my Alice
While I was back home last week I met this guy who claimed to be US ex-mil. He married a cousin of mine a few years back when they met in Saudi Arabia. He has a business there in SA and his stepsons (my nephews) say he runs a store that sells ice water and ice blocks. His name is Bernie. He's about 5'4", wears glasses, has a mustache, built like a spark plug and walks with a limp.
He claimed to be airborne but didn't specify if he was 82nd or 101st (only 2 numbers that I can associate the word "airborne" with). He also claimed he and his unit participated in Urgent Fury and Just Cause.
But he also claimed to have participated in Gothic Serpent. Any truth to this? All I've ever read on here and in other sites were that the only troops who had a hand in this Op were Delta, Rangers, SOAR, SEALs, and some PJs.
Could this guy be the real deal ?
