Ok, I'm not sure what to think.
Regarding the interview with Tim's ex-wife - it doesn't add up. She hasn't been his wife in several years, so how would she know FOR SURE about whether he was injured in 2009 or not? She says she caught him cheating in 1991 (Tim would have been 14 then). She says she had him arrested for domestic violence in 2002 and he disappeared afterwards, but ALSO snipes that he got another woman pregnant in 2003. So, did he come back in between, or what? Then Tim allegedly married the woman he got pregnant and they recently divorced. So, WHEN were this ex-wife of his and he actually married? The woman sounds unstable to me.
Ok, so it looks lik he only served for 9 years, not 14, but he DID serve in Afghanistan in 2009.
I think he exaggerated his years of service, but I want more info before I call him an out-and-out liar. He says that he was treated locally in Afghanistan and transported to Germany for treatment. That could be true, because it looks like he only spent a month of so in Afghanistan - that's an incredibly short deployment.
