From The Huffington Post:

Say what you will about Alvin Greene, the mercurial, bizarre, out-of-nowhere Democratic Senate candidate in South Carolina whose election seems possibly fraudulent and whose chances against GOP Sen. Jim DeMint are basically non-existent.

He has not, like other Senate candidates running this year, suffered from a propensity to exaggerate when it comes to discussing his military record. If anything, he’s downplayed his achievements. From Friday’s Washington Post profile of Greene comes this nugget:

The Pentagon confirms that he served in the Army, and in the Army and Air Force national guards. Although Greene has not boasted of winning awards, the Pentagon says he was granted the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and Korean Defense Service Medal.
