I just wish I had done a cursory google search on Micah Wright a couple years ago and found out what he was up to. I could have told Kevin Parrot, WaPo, and Wright’s publishers that I knew Wright hadn’t been a Ranger during the American invasion of Panama.
Because I was dating him in Tucson, Arizona at the time.
I was a freshman at the University of Arizona, and Micah was a junior. We met my first month at school at a mutual acquaintance’s birthday party in September, 1989, and sort-of dated each other and generally hung out together that year. The Panama invasion started in December, 1989, and ended with Noriega’s surrender in January, 1990. Micah was definitely at the U of A, not Panama.I graduated from the U of A in December 1985. My best friend from North Carolina went to Panama as a Special Forces non-com.
