Raul Medina Jr. posts a lot of photos and claims of him being a Vietnam veteran. He claims he was a Master Sergeant (E-8) and served with the 75th Ranger Regiment.
Also wears a Combat Infantryman Badge on his Army veteran uniform.
He proudly displays the RANGER tab on his uniform.
Then of course, the 75th Ranger Regiment.
He claims to be a Vietnam Veteran. In fact, it would be hard to miss that claim.
Medina claims to be a Master Sergeant (E-8). See above photo for rank and below photo for claim of Master Sergeant.
But here he is claiming E-6 vs. E-8. Which is it?
Raul Medina Jr.’s official military records were requested. He has no middle name.
DISCUSSION AND SUMMARY
Raul Medina Jr. spent three years on active duty in the US Army.
He was not in Vietnam according to his records. Entering the US Army in 1973 would have made it tough to get the training and get sent to Vietnam anyway, which raised an initial red flag.
Also, according to his records Medina was discharged as a Private First Class (E-3 in the US Army) vs. the claim of Master Sergeant (E-8).
The Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB), Airborne, and Air assault wings are not in his records.
He was stationed in Batteries in Fort Polk, LA and Fort Bliss, TX. There is nothing in his official military records to support his claim of being an Army Ranger nor support for him being stationed with the 75th Ranger Regiment.
Some may admire Raul since he saves a lot of time because not much goes into his decision of what to wear each day, but more people would take exception to him making claims that are not supported in his records.
