Bull. I don’t believe either a military person or a cop could vet a wanna-be on an internet forum. The thing about wanna-bees is they usually know all the vernacular, slang and terminology so it would be easy to fake it. Just look at how many cases of stolen valor there are in the country. Scores of guys passing themselves off as servicemen (and usually highly decorated ones at that). They get outed when someone actually investigates their service record (or lack thereof), not because of some foolproof 10-second vetting process which exists only in your mind.
