I don’t mean to sound jerky or paranoid, but I’ve been hanging out recently with a guy who’s been telling me a lot of stories about his military days and the honors he ecrued (sp?) in them. A lot of these stories seem a bit, well, over-the-top. I know he was -in- the military, but I’m wondering if there’s some way to check out the nature of some of his supposed awards he received (other than asking to see the damn things)? I figure awards would be something that would be relatively easy to look up the recipients of, or am I mistaken?
