The founder of the Florida SFMC, Robert
Stanley "BO" McCormick was wearing unauthorized badges and not SF qualified, nor Scuba qualified. We conducted an investigation, and found this to be true. [ I think it's important for everyone to know that the SFMC is originally from Colorado, not Florida, has no affiliation with Bo McCormick or the riding club he created down Florida.] As far as his unauthorized badges, He wears a SF Tab and Scuba Badge on his "colors". SWC G-3 was contacted and there is no record of him having graduated from Scuba School or SFQC. Additionally he gave us copies of his DD 214 and his DA 20. There is no annotation of the SQI W7 nor award or annotation of SQI S. By his own admission, he failed the SFQC 12B, in August of 1966. His 214 lists him as an E-5 76Y20 and parachutist qualified. His DD 20 has him in a duty position of 76Y4S. He served in it as an unqualified E-5. His replies to the allegations are as follows: *He lost his records. *He quit the SFQC because his child had the shits. *He was awarded the S by Colonel Beck (I guess because he was a good guy?). *By his own admission, he failed the SFQC 12B, in August of 1966 but stated "I feel that my experience in 10th Group makes me Special Forces Qualified". NOT!!!!!!! Ahh, the Holiday Inn Express excuse. New one on me. He completed the PADI class in Germany, so could just wear the Scuba Badge.
