Have a family member who has started seeing someone (Canadian) who claims to have been a US Navy SEAL. Haven't met yet and only have a first name (Todd), but do have the attached picture. I don't really know much about US Decorations, etc. but from what I can figure out at the time of the picture (2006) he'd have been a Lt. Commander with the following decorations:
Combat Action Ribbon
National Defense Service Medal
Southwest Asia Service Medal
Navy Sea Service Deployment
Kuwait Liberation Medal (Saudi Arabia)
Kuwait Liberation Medal (Emirate of Kuwait)
Anyone claiming to be a former SEAL would raise questions from me, but that list of decorations is pretty eyebrow raising as well (although they do appear to be in the proper order of precedence any maybe not impossible for an actual SEAL?)
Anyone see anything else from the picture that jumps out as being obvious BS? The fact that it's time stamped (like a personal picture as opposed to an official portrait) and with a cheapo background seems very fishy to me but I don't know enough about US Navy uniforms/decorations to know if anything else is obviously out of line.
My family member says he's "a nice guy" and treats her well (and no indication that he seems to be Walting in order to gain anything specific based on his alleged past military service), but anyone that passes themselves off a something they are not would certainly set of major alarm bells with me.
