Was jungle training a portion of that training and was it held in Panama in November 1969?
The reason I ask is because I played softball with a black guy two years ago who is now in prison for impersonating a federal law enforcement official (his second offense after serving 3 years in prison from 2010 - 2013) who always bragged about being a Vietnam vet and was special forces.
None of his claims set well with me since he said he did his jungle training in Panama in Nov of 1969, which was when I arrived there just after turning 19 years of age. At the time he would have been 3 or 2 years younger than me..............Yea, he's a phony but sooner or later he'll get out and I'll see him in softball again.
From SOFREP News: “The official name is the Jungle Operations Training Center (JOTC). For many years the U.S. Army had a jungle operations school located in the Panama Canal Zone in Central America.”
Send off for his records.
If you have a good name and approximate dates of service send off for a copy. You’ll get a one page summery and a copy of the form 2 (IIRC) sanitized.
Can’t remember if it’s $25.
