Now comes Robert A. Lane who claims on Social Media ( facebook ) that he deployed to Beirut Lebanon after the terrorist attack.
He also claims that he volunteered to deploy to Grenada.
He claims to have served with 1/10 Artillery from Camp Lejeune North Carolina, and Comm Co. 4th Marines from Okinawa Japan. He tells all that he went to Communications School in 29 Palms California.
Claiming 30 months in Okinawa Japan where he volunteered for everything possible. Even Jump wings.
We have confirmed that the technician from the National Personal Records Center ( NPRC ) made a typo while writing up Robert A. Lane’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA ). We did so by matching all the personal information on Robert A. Lanes SF-180 request form to the NPRC.
Robert A. Lane served on Active duty in the US Marine Corps from Nov. 8, 1982 to Sep. 10, 1985 ( 2 years, 10 months, 2 days ). He was discharged a Private ( E-1 ).
His Military Education was Field Radio Operator’s course.
Decorations and awards are the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, and both the marksman and sharpshooter rifle qualification badges.
From Nov.9, 1982 to Jun.22,1983 Robert Lane was in Boot Camp and Communication School.
From June 23, 1983 to June 17, 1984, he was assigned to Headquarters Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, Okinawa Japan.
From June 18, 1984 to April 22, 1985 he was assigned to 1st Battalion 10th Marine regiment stationed at Camp Lejeune North Carolina.
His PMOS remained the same during his complete enlistment. ( 2531 ) Field Radio Operator.
On April 23, 1985 Robert Lane was listed as UA ( AWOL ). On May 23, 1985, He was dropped from the daily roster and declared a Deserter. He was captured on June 12, 1985 and put on confinement ( Brig ). He was given a Special Court Martial, received a Bad Conduct Discharge. after 45 days of confinement, he was discharged on Sep.10, 1985
Summary and Conclusion ; A certain portion of the 10 Marines did deploy to Lebanon in 1983. While Robert Lane was either in Boot Camp, Comm. School, or assigned to the 4th Marines on Okinawa Japan which did not deploy to Lebanon.
We checked with the Marines at Beirut Memorial Online, a group dedicated to the remembrance of those who served and were lost in Beirut Lebanon. By the time Pvt Lane arrived at 10th Marines the last unit deployed to Beirut had already been there for several months. Golf Battery, 3rd Battalion 10th Marines was the last unit from 10th Marines to deploy to Lebanon. A former Platoon Sergeant for G 3/10 confirmed that Robert Lane was not there. There was a 1stSgt Carl Layne who was deployed. We are told the 1stSgt would become “unpleasant” should anyone confuse him with this “#other#uk### piece of ###t” (or words to that effect.)
With all of the claims and evidence presented, we can confirm that Robert A. Lane is embellishing his service record severely. He only attended one school. Was not in Beirut, and deserted his assigned duty station.
Criminal Records on Robert A Lane show that his Military address in Nov. 1984 was Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 10 Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, Camp Lejeune North Carolina.
