I dont know what unit he claims to be from... it has already been claimed that he had been awarded the Silver Star, but I know that is bull shit since only two Marnines were awarded (in DS1). I also checked with Legion of Valor...

Should I post his name here?

I wouldn't post it but you might email it to STLRN or Cinccinatus I am sure they could shed some light on it for you.

Was he a tunnel rat sniper too? Those tunnel rat snipers don't get much long range trigger time but it's probably pretty tricky shooting!

Sure, post his name and picture. This kind of 'stolen valor' garbage needs to be exposed wherever and whenever. People that do this kind of thing are low-lifes that should be destroyed utterly.

Try this post over on specialoperations.com
Those guys love outing a wannabe. I know one or two over there.
If he is no longer in, ask to see his DD214 and see if he has the Kuwaiti Liberation Medal. It was for service in SouthWest Asia.

why do posers always claim to have won high "ranking" medals?
they might be able to get away with saying they were a corporal or something but medal winners can usually be confirmed/disproven without needing access to actual military databases

I was a Command Private Major. Lots of medals I am sure.

No one by that name, or even close to that name receievd the Combat Action Ribbon for SWA.
This I can confirm 100%.

He might have been there, but no Combat.

I sharpened General Pattons pencils while he was in England.

Got any other Marines who claim to have seen combat, who you'd like me to check on?
It'll take 5 seconds.

There is a web site that 'outs' posers.

I used it to reveal a phony before

I will post an edit to include the website

they are real veterans who do this with a vengeance since there is little worse than someone masquerading as a veteran


Here's one...........Click here

and here's another........targets SEAL POSERS but all fakes as well

or.............another SEAL poser page

and lastly................The Best Option yet to expose a phoney veteran

Does being married to my ex-wife count as combat?

Either that, or you rate a Humanitarian Service Medal (or a POW Medal?)
