DD214-Recon, Scout/Sniper…and…Now ;) August 15, 2012

Posted by Chris Mark in Uncategorized.

Strangely, someone has been doing a number of searches on subjects such as “chris mark USMC fraud”, “chris mark military fraud”, “chris mark no sniper” and various other topics.  How do I know this?  Good question! I use the standard WordPress analytics plus Google Analytics!  For those companies wondering the value of Google, this should demonstrate that at the very least, you can see what people are trying to find on you!…but…I digress.  To assuage the person, or persons fears that I was not in the military or was somehow fabricating my experience, I have attached the single ‘God like’ document that shows one’s military experience.  The  mysterious, yet reliable DD214!  This is available to any US citizen in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). yup..you can request a DD214 on me, your grandfather, your dad, or the president (if he had served).  You can get an FOIA on anyone who has served.  Simply go to archives.gov and check it out!…The picture attached is me, in 1995 with 3rd Force Reconnaissance Company in Hawaii during our June 1995 amphibious operations. I am top row first on the right while AP is bottom row, second from right.  This happens to be the same month that Scott O’Grady was rescued from Bosnia after being shot down in his F16.  Look closely, and you may recognize some faces 😉

It should be noted that I was on active duty twice…once with the USMC and then with the USN as an officer.  This DD214 is my second…it shows the schools and awards but not my units (like 3/6 STA) while enlisted.  That is a separate DD214…
