Do these people not do research on the people they are trying to help. That guy is 100% full of shit. POW in Iraq and Afghanistan 4 time purple heart "winner". FFS this reads like a duffel blog article. Based on the comments it won't be long until his gig is up.

The unit's dog dragged him to safety?? Ummm... ok...
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 9:18:55 AM EDT

From the article:
"The French herding dog was originally named Hallmark, but McFarland decided to rename him Shadow after his unit’s dog who dragged him to safety while he was unconscious during a firefight in Baghdad"





Oh come on........it's a FRENCH dog!

uhh I will. Check the official reports from the defense department of POW's for Iraq and Afghanistan. Spoiler alert he is on none of them. The only facts that I have seemed to find on him that he was some POG ass Marine reservist that was discharged after 2 years.

One would think the organization supplying the dog would know a little bit about things.

Apparently not.

There are some real injured vets that REALLY need that service dog. It needs to be taken from the guy ASAP!

I don't blame the civilian organization, most are truly good people wanting to help out some wounded soldiers. Their hearts in the right place but once again if they are not familiar with time in grade promotions and such they don't feel like they have the right to question a soldier on his valor.

Is the bigger embarrassment the dude, or the organization who didn't check out his story?

I just figured most of these orgs had at least SOMEBODY that had general knowledge of the military...especially one that is giving out fucking PTSD dogs.

That's all

I mean..hell..they can hire me as a consultant to vet the umm...vets...if they want.

In the Bowe Bergdahl case they are saying he was the ONLY POW from Afghanistan.

If that is the case how could this guy be one too ?

A real veteran wouldn't. It's not uncommon for us to be asked for a copy of our 214 when working with the VA or other government organizations to validate our service. If he has a problem with showing his 214 and goes on tv bitching about not getting free shit then he would show his true colors to military community in a heartbeat.

Look how we dealt with pfc bergdahl....we will call shitbags out.

Absolutely. You want my enlisted or officer 214? Pretty easy.

Well...except they lost copy 4 of my officer 214. Assholes..."We gave it to you.." No...no you didn't.

Your alien friends went to bring him to you, but he got scared when some other kid abducted him and took him for a flying bicycle ride, so he called home and had his buddies pick him back up after leaving a trail of Reese's Pieces trough the woods.

It is a direct violation of the Stolen Valor Act of 2013. The maximum punishment: $100,000 fine and up to one year in jail for each offense.
