The First Rule of Holes
I am actually getting a bit tired of talking about this Lauro Chavez, but as long as he keeps lying, I am going to have to keep exposing him. Now he is facing the problem, that since he has started lying, he has to make up new lies to back up the old ones. Today he is back on Alex Jones' radio show At the 1:01 mark:
A lot of people question, “If you were in Afghanistan, how come you don’t have an Afghan service ribbon?” I don’t have an Afghan service ribbon, I don’t have a combat action badge. I am entitled to those things, but those are just awards that I don’t feel are necessary. The reason I don’t have those, is because to get an award your commander has to put you in for it stating why, and you go through this whole process. It sometimes takes 3 or 4 or 6 months. When I came back from Afghanistan, I did a Chapter 13 which is an early drop for college. The regulation states that if you have a letter from an accredited university they will let you out up to 6 months prior to your ETS date. Your end of term of service. So I didn’t want to wait 6 months. I just wanted to get out. So I got accepted to Ohio State, and then I left.
Regarding the awards, that is true if you are receiving an award for merit, but an award received for simply "being someplace" is a much simpler administrative action. It is not uncommon to receive these awards before you even leave your deployment. Getting overseas time on your DD-214 is an even simpler process.
Furthermore, as I pointed out previously, a Chapter 13 discharge is not "an early drop for college" it is a "Separation for Unsatisfactory Performance." The early drop for college, titled "Early separation to further education" is a Chapter 5 "Convenience of the Government" separation. He even lies about it being 6 months out, the policy only states 90 days.
Geez, did he think nobody would look this up?
