David Lee Miller reported on "The Real Story" this afternoon on an Air Force veteran who federal authorities say tried to join ISIS.

- Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, of Asbury Park, N.J., was arrested Jan. 16 before he could follow through on his plan to travel to Syria.

- Pugh, a 47-year-old American citizen, served at least four years in the Air Force as a mechanic before working for several companies, including in the Middle East. 

- Pugh was allegedly hoping to travel from Egypt to Turkey and then into Syria, but he was stopped by Turkish authorities at the border.

- Once he was sent back to Egypt, he was taken into custody and deported back to the United States.

- According to prosecutors, Pugh was an Air Force avionics instrument system specialist who received training in the installation and maintenance of aircraft engine, navigation and weapons systems.

- He's believed to be the first U.S. veteran to try to join up with the terror army.
