Yep, the answers in this thread are kinda what I figured.
The hardest thing about this is that he’s a really great guy, or at least appears to be. He knows my husband and I are a little short on money at the end of the month, so around then, he’ll ask me what I need, go to the store and pick it up, and refuse all offers to pay him back. He and his wife will offer to take me and Leo to an early dinner, or to the playground at the mall, when they can see that we are just desperate to get out of the house.
I genuinely like this guy and he genuinely likes me. He’s my buddy. So it kinda sucks all around. Although I have no personal investment in whether or not he was ever in the Military, I hate that he and Wife are feeling this way at the moment. I’m not really sure what Wife plans on doing from here on. I know she confronted him, as did another friend who is also (?) a veteran, and he assured them both that if they wanted to see Military records, he could produce them. He tried to tell me, and I cut him off, telling him that I was not his wife, and therefore was happy to take him at his word.
If he was really never in, and he knows that, why is he so insistent on showing everyone Military records? Can you fake those?
