Deadpool Was The Worst Army Special Forces Soldier Ever
Deadpool was Special Forces. But what he did while in Special Forces for ten years is a bit harder to nail down.
Despite searching far and wide for his DD-214, we are left to speculate from two official Deadpool movies and one terrible X-Men spinoff, as to the U.S. military veteran origins of our favorite 'merc with a mouth'.
What we do know is that he was deployed to Iraq and Somalia, and he trained in Jacksonville; it's possible that there was a black ops operation near the infamous TGI Fridays in Jacksonville, Florida, but it's far, far more likely that it was related to the killer training that took place in Tampa earlier this year.
Regardless of his TGI Fridays experience, Wade Wilson shows the tactical moves that say 'I used to do really wild things with C-4 at Fort Bragg', but his post-service life was not indicative of a gun-slinging spook. Most high-end operators can, at the worst, nail a gig making coffee humor videos if the CIA clandestine operations directorate side hustle falls through.
In 2016, Wade Wilson saw that the future if hairstyles was the barracks special.
But Wade had a dishonorable discharge. Not even a B.A. in communications from directional 'U' was in the cards for our favorite enlisted veteran of the Marvel universe. Minus good papers, which likely cost him his clearance, Wilson was left to intimidate teenage stalkers and pull pranks on overweight bar-patrons.
We don't know what Special Forces group he was with, his specialty, or why he was drummed out. What we do know is that his battle buddies still remembered him on first sight, and he sure knew how to sport a military haircut before it was fashionable.

Despite all of the antics and obfuscation, it's intensely relatable to see a veteran who was kind of a shitbag — albeit a capable one — hit a rough patch after getting out of the military. And luckily for us all, Deadpool met a nice man named Francis to guide him through his post-service transition.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars has demanded an apology from President Trump over recent comments in which he downplayed the seriousness of traumatic brain injuries suffered by American troops in an Iranian missile attack.
"The Veterans of Foreign Wars cannot stand idle on this matter," William "Doc" Schmitz, VFW National Commander, said in a statement Friday, noting TBI is a serious injury known to cause depression, memory loss, severe headaches and other symptoms in the short and long-term.
President Donald Trump tweeted out the logo for the brand-new U.S. Space Force on Friday, presenting it as a collaboration between "Great Military Leaders, designers and others."
Thing is, fans of Star Trek will find that the logo looks strikingly familiar. In fact, it looks almost exactly like the emblem of Starfleet, the uniformed space force maintained by the United Federation of Planets.
The Navy is investigating dozens of videos of service members changing in a bathroom which were then shared on the website PornHub, according to a NBC News report.
According to the report, an agent from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service found the videos on PornHub earlier this month. The videos, which have since been taken down, show civilians, sailors and Marines, some of whom have visible name tapes.
Two Army Ranger medics saved lives by taking fresh blood from uninjured soldiers in the middle of a firefight
We already knew that Army Rangers were a unique breed of badass, but performing real-time blood transfusions while under enemy fire on the battlefield takes it to an entirely new level.
