HE LIES!!!!   HE LIES!!!!!

Robert Jordan is a TOTAL HOAX! After reading the first book in the series recently (Which I found long and dull) I read about the author.... WOW! earned medals in the war...  The distinguished Flying Cross (A VERY HIGH AND ONE OF A KIND AWARD!!!!), falsely owning one could send you to prison. They cannot be bought or sold legally. The bronze star with a "v", and 2 Vietnamese crosses of Gallantry. (Everyone got a cross that was in Vietnam)

With a little knowledge about the Vietnam war and the HELL those people went through I thought the man was truly a hero....

A little checking here






Shows his name nowhere, why?



I looked for every name he used! HE NEVER LEFT AMERICA!!!!!

He did go to the citadel academy


and is mentioned in the "Notable Alumni" section under James O. Rigney jr. if you read through the list of alumni, writing books is no big deal. LYING ABOUT BEING A WAR HERO IS!   He graduated in 1974 and the Vietnam war ended in 1973! War then school? Doubt it... why would I not?  I thought all you fans should know this so you could update your sites and facts accordingly....

If someone could prove me wrong then by all means do so. EVERY HERO DESERVES CREDIT! (but if you are not then don't claim it!) and shame will ride on my shoulders.... and my woman will never let me live it down.

Um, check out his bio at Dragonmount.com. That's all I can say.

According to all the bios I've read Jordan (Rigney) was in 'Nam between '68 and '70. He then enrolled in college in '70 and graduated in '74. I checked out his bio in Dragonmount.com. Seems consistent to me. I see no evidence, so far, of dishonesty.

Umm...check other sections of the sites.  For instance


That explains why you are wrong.  There is no single list of all the recipients.  I suppose he could still be lying, but there's no proof.

It should also be noted that Military records are not kept the same as civilian records. As far as I can tell, you are listing websites set up by private parties. Why not use GOVERNMENT information. That would be a URL that ends in .gov. Something that all good reporters and writers do when using resources is to check them for accuracy. I'm not saying that the sites that you used to research your claim are false, I would go as far as saying that they may be incomplete. Lastly, and here's the real kicker. If he were truly lying about these events then he would be exposed faster than a pair of boobs at Mardi Gras.

Robert Jordan is a pen name.  That's why his name isn't listed anywhere.

I wonder if you know that Robert Jordan is not his real name but "James Oliver Rigney Jr".

So ofcause no Robert Jordan done what was said in that bio.
