The title of this article is a conjectural. Though the topic is found within The Simpsons universe, a proper name is not available.

The 98th Airborne Veteran is a man who was a veteran of the Iraq War and a member of the presumably Army-aligned 98th Airborne.

History

He proceeded to watch a showing of The Late Late Late Show with Jimmy Jimmy that featured Kent Brockman while at the Veterans Of Unpopular Wars Hall's tavern alongside Abraham Simpson II and various other veterans. When Brockman proceeded to tell Jimmy Jimmy a "war story" about his time in Basra as a war correspondent among the 98th Airborne aboard a Chinook before landing the Chinook on a sinking Container Ship after its pilot was taken out by an enemy RPG, the veteran, having previously served under the 98th Airborne, stated he didn't recall seeing Kent Brockman among his unit, and after hearing the story angrily yelled at the TV that said story never happened before expressing his displeasure by throwing stuff at the TV (not helped by Abraham Simpson's deriding Iraq War veterans) and presumably blowing the whistle on Brockman to Channel 6 News.

He presumably suffered a wound during his service, as one of the objects he threw at the TV was a purple heart medal.
