Maybe he IS a ranger that just doesn't keep in touch with his brothers but digs BBW chicks.
You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

If you have the time to wait, you have his name and birthdate, and the dates he claims to have served. Send a FOIA request for his records to the Military Personnel Records Center.

Is there something else that makes you doubt his claim?
That time frame would have put him in Ranger school a little after I went through it. I'm 36 now. I am a little hazy when I started the Benning phase (maybe Aug 92?) . I know I was in the mountain phase in Oct 31st waiting for the next class to come through, and it was cold at night... That and I couldn't stop shitting and puking (pretty sure that was giardia). The Army doctor told me nothing was wrong with me. Glad I wasn't in the Army, and was glad to get back to real medical professionals (Navy Corpsmen), and some antibiotics.
Camp Darby---mountain phase, had the best grits and blueberry pancakes in the world (in the chowhall). There was a pull-up bar right outside the front hatch. All R.I.'s stationed there, except one, were fat tubs of goo. Thier cammies looked like spandex on them.
Darby was my last phase. My feet got jacked up in that phase, and I lost about 20-lbs in about 2 days from my intestinal visitors. My feet still hurt occasionally.
If that dude were to go into a National Guard unit with a Ranger Tab, he'd be a god.
