 from “Hanoi Hilton” January 02. 1974.
 This man also claims to have a helicopter maneuver named after him.
 He claims to have put “IT” in an over the top loop evading a

The word is that he is trying to become Post Commander

 xxxxxxxxxxxx…You’re right. This guy is a blow-hard who you shouldn’t
 waste too much time on. Definitely a Phony, a Wanna-Be.
 Probably wasn’t even an officer. Very rarely do we find a real officer
 who lies about such things. Most of our 400 or so phonies have a
checkered past such as a less than honorable discharge,
 desertion, court-martial history, or have never even been in the
 military. If you can ever get a look at his driver’s license to get his
 real name and social security number, we can do a FOIA on him
 and find out his real background in about 60 days.
 Attachments will give you more information.
 Thanks for the heads-up on this phony POW.

  1. This is what would otherwise be known as a Piece of Shit. Somebody is doing a piss poor job of vetting these asswipes.

    Birth day is right, year is wrong but I’m guessing this fellow is no longer stealing the oxygen of our real heroes.
