Do you Recognize This Man?

***UPDATE - He's been identified. All the nauseating details are at Bouhammer's place. Go read it********* The guy you see in the pic above was spotted at George R. Brown Convention at the Annise Parker for Houston Mayor Victory Party on 12/12/2009.

There are many, many problems with the uniform, the medals, etc. People who are far more knowledgable than I are throwing a flag on this one.

If you recognize him, please drop me a line.

Please read the three comments left by My Darling Chief!

An E-Bay Warrior.

For one thing, the asshat is wearing the Vietnamese Civic Honor Action Medal, which hasn't been awarded since 1973. He's also wearing a Pathfinder's badge and several other awards from *years* before he was born -- like the WWII Victory Medal.

He's also wearing a Silver Star and a Purple Heart.

Stolen Valor Act.

This fucktard is looking at about five years in prison. Hopefully, Leavenworth, where John can "introduce" himself...

Just took another look -- WTF is that around his neck, a Masonic medallion?

BillT said...

Oooooohhhh -- better and better! Master Jump Wings! He's made combat jumps in Vietnam! And a Luftwaffe Stuka Pilot's Badge?!?!

I'd have loved to be there and asked him questions for the camera. Of course, I would have had to drive a bayonet through his foot into the dance floor to keep him there...

From some of the pics at Bouhammers' place, he has what looks like a CIA patch on his right side below the pocket!

I don't understand these stolen valor types... I did my 9 years in subs and have one(1) medal-type thingy (NAM), not counting unit awards or general stuff like NatDef Medal... And that's good enough for me. Why lie and have to live under the ever-bigger cloud of sh** that will eventually collapse on you?

FOR THOSE IN THE HOUSTON AREA. This requested was forwarded, but it appears a newstation want to take a look. kind of seems strange that a reporter could not view the videos of the event to see, but..

--------

Could you go back please and ask any of those who recognized this person and know/knew him if they would be willing to talk to us today?

I need a more solid link to the name than what I have...and I'm afraid anonymous bloggers saying so won't meet the standard for airing that name.

Feel free to forward my info along...

COULD YOU MAYBE MAKE A POST ASKING THAT IF ANYONE CAN POSITIVELY IDENTIFY HIM THEY SHOULD CALL OR EMAIL ME?
