Default America's deadliest soldier??

http://news.yahoo.com/americas-deadliest-soldier-stolen-valor-212237661.html

wondering what some of the vets on the board take on this. it just sounds like too much to be true, Chris Kyle's only job was sniping & he amassed over 150. this guy apparently had enough spare time outside using his mounted machine gun to also use a Barret to kill 121. i'm not buyin any of it

How many airstrike would that be and is he taking claim for the kills of those ranked beneath him?

Sounds to me like he has embellished his actions that were mostly undocumented.

I served in the same unit in Vietnam in 1970 with a true hero, a Sgt at the time, Joe Hooper Cpt. Ret. (now deceased) and he has the awards to prove it;
Medal of Honor
Silver Star (2)
Bronze Star (6)
Purple Heart (8)
Air Medal

Plus 19 other awards for a total of 37.
