THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, this soldier stationed at JBER tried to fake his death. I was a friend to this guy Robert Clark. Best friends I thought. I got an e-mail from his brother telling me he had been killed in a rescue mission during the Japanese Tsunami last March. He was TDY in Okinawa and got crushed by a falling building. I heard about how they arranged his boots and gave his ashes to his daughter and his family to scatter into the ocean. How his dog tags were literally dripping with sweat. It was heart wrenching. I saw a guy drive down my street this morning that looked eerily like my friend. I thought I was going crazy. Now mind you, after he died I searched the papers, the internet for any record of his death. He claimed he was EOD so I thought maybe something was classified or secret about the way he had died. Nonetheless I went on about my life as usual. Hurt, but moving on. Something told me to search for his number to call and see if the number was disconnected or whatever. I thought I was seeing things or going crazy. I fished out the number, called and lo and behold he answered! I was shocked. I confronted him about lying about FAKING HIS DEATH. I mean how lame. He gave me an excuse about some trouble he was having with a woman at the time. It was all he could think of doing to get away from her he said. Now tell me how f*cked up is this? How could someone not have the balls to tell someone to fck off that they wanted nothing to do with but instead act like they died? On top of everything he has little man’s syndrome, and think he deserves a VS secret model on his arm for some reason. Nik put this guy on blast for not only being a sh*tty friend. But a general douche bag that goes around claiming he’s a Christian and a good guy. He’s trying to claim he’s stationed at Ft. Lewis, but I made some phone calls and found out he is here in Anchorage on JBER. Not only is he a liar, but an all around shitty friend. Now I’m starting to wonder if all those war stories he told me were crap. I don’t know what to believe. What he did tarnishes the memory of all the men and women that have lost their lives. I’m a forgiving person. But this one is just too much to forgive.
Must of had a bad (gay) experience he’s now trying to shake.- nik
