When we met he said he was a dog trainer, when I asked what rank he was, he replied he didn't have a rank and that he didn't exist, no contract either. He then said he belonged to one of the European SOFs, and then their task force. He had to this point spent 2 years in Missouri previously.
Over 3 months, he went from being a dog trainer to having been SOF for 9 years, to TFxx to a desensitisation programme, to some sort of special agent for another intelligence agency, to SOF trainer signing a 10 year contract, to short combat deployment, to resigning and being a dog trainer for military and police.
Many thanks again
