UPDATE: Yep. He’s Special Forces (see info at the end of the article)
UPDATE 2: His PMOS classification is 18c3 which according to the List of United States Army careers is “18C Special Forces Engineer Sergeant” – His PMOS was found on a Military Times listing .
Trey Scott Atwater is an unconventional warfare and demolitions expert. See US Army Info Site listing for PMOS 18c3 at the end of this article. “Performs and teaches tasks in demolitions, explosives.. Plans, teaches and performs sabotage operations with standard, nonstandard and improvised munitions and explosives.”
UPDATE 3: As mentioned in the original article, the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg does factor into this story as Atwater is assigned there.
“Lt. Col. Tom Bryant, a public affairs officer for the Army Special Operations Command, confirmed that Atwater is assigned to the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, which is at Fort Bragg, N.C.” OA Online
UPDATE 4: With the new NDAA 2012 declaring the entire world as the battle field, does that mean that the US Special Forces can conduct unconventional warfare operations right here in America? Is the threat of indefinite detention the least of our problems? read Trey Scott Atwater – Bringing Unconventional War Back Home?
On Saturday morning, a soldier from Fort Bragg has been arrested for trying to board Flight 3283 out of Midland, Texas with military grade C-4 high explosives in his carry-on bag. The ink still wet on Obama’s signature on the NDAA and this soldier was heading back to Fort Bragg, home of Delta Force. Anyone thinking Waco?
Thirty-year-old Trey Scott Atwater, traveling with his family, was stopped going through the security scanner at the airport when a TSA agent noticed something odd in Atwater’s carry-on luggage. Turns out it was C-4, a demolition grade military high explosive. No reports yet as too how much C-4 Atwater had in the bag or whether or not he brought it with him on the trip to Midland from Fort Bragg.
A spokesman for the FBI said that there was no immediate threat to civilians because Atwater wasn’t found to be in possession of a detonator at the time of his arrest.
I’m not so sure.
