Can we check someone out?
Please understand that I am not making any accusations or anything. I am simply wondering if it is possible to check someone out because of the position he is about to assume.
He is being considered for the Board of the NRA. He is probably the real thing but since it is the NRA and we want to avoid a scandal, lets check him out.
Steve Schreiner: Vietnam Vet., Airborne Ranger, awarded CIB, Bronze Star with V device and Silver Star.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."
Thomas Paine, volunteer in the Continental Army in his The American Crisis.
