He was a CLERK for a Recon battalion a rifleman and a COOK. Period. No secret stuff. No intel work. He got paid by his MOS – And there is nothing secret in a CLERK, a rifleman for 4 months and a COOK.His story vs his records are pure BS.
Claims: William “Pila” Chiles is a decorated Purple Heart Vietnam veteran with Fleet Marine Forces, Pacific, the Marine Corps elite Reconnaissance Unit, and survivor of a Top Secret experimental program in guerilla warfare. As a Recon Marine, he volunteered for the program which experienced more than a 50% casualty rate, among the highest casualty rates of the Vietnam war. He suffered PTSD and was in a straightjacket. : He wrote in his book here http://www.amazon.com/The-Secrets-Mysteries-Hawaii-Call/dp/1558743626 that he is a decorated Vietnam Marine Corps veteran, a member of an elite reconnaissance unit that served under heavy combat, and a survivor of a top secret experimental program in guerilla warfare. “After Vietnam, I became Chief of Military Police in charge of stationing Marine guards at top secret facilities throughout the globe.”
Chiles is a phony wannabe. His story is a lie and he is a liar.
Chiles, from those FOIA records, seems to have been a REMF, in the rear, with the gear, drinking beer while the regular grunts were in the boonies. Only once or twice does his MOS ever change from being an Admin Clerk (0141). He is a CON MAN, in my humble opinion. Some one should also check out that retired USN Captain, Arthur M. Osborne, who endorsed Chiles' book with such glowing terms and kudos. Birds of a feather, as the saying goes.
I would like to report about a Iraqi War Veteran named Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan.
He has embellished his military career.
He has written a book named Until Tuesday about his military career in Iraq and how there was an assassination attempt on his life.
His claims in his book was investigated by the the following news agencies and none of Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan fellow soldiers confirmed his heroics.

Also, the “ARMY TIMES” carried the story “Comrades question Iraq vet's memoir, memories”: http://www.armytimes.com/article/20110728/NEWS/107280310/Comrades-question-Iraq-vet-s-memoir-memories
There is also a Facebook site named “Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan is Lying”: https://www.facebook.com/CaptainLuisCarlosMontalvanLying
In conclusion, Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan, is making millions of dollars on his book deal because he has embellished his military service in Iraq which no of his comrades that served with him has confirmed.
Please look at all the news articles above which the reporters have conducted their research and interviewed many people and and it was found that Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan is lying.
Please include Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan in your database as a Veteran that has embellished his military service in Iraq.
