Carroll A. Durham Jr., U.S. Army, Bronze Star recipient, POSer, Blog of Shame2

So here is what we have.
Carroll A. Durham, Sergeant with the U.S. Army
Served his country from 1968 to 1970, active duty
1970 to 1974, reserves.
Galiantly fought in the Vietnam war,
as he depicts in his book
“The Forgotten Soldier”.
Earned himself 3 Bronze Stars.
See look at this pic for yourself.
“His bling (can’t call them anything BUT, in this case)
is seriously messed up here.
You DON’T wear more than 1 award unless regulations state otherwise.
In this case, this POSer has THREE *count them*
things on his ASU Dress Uniform. He’s full of Stolen Valor.”
As quoted by a respected individual (Cleaned up a bit)
but none-the-less someone that knows
what he sees is BS!
Soooo many people are calling BS. We do not doubt his service,
we ARE doubting his awards. And as y’all know, in here that is called
STOLEN VALOR!!!!!!! POSer!
Even some of the book reviews by MILITARY PEERS and COLLEGE KIDS from Amazon and
Barnes & Noble are not favorable.
Here is a quote taken from
“The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 (Pub.L. 113–12; H.R. 258)
is a United States federal law that was passed
by the 113th United States Congress.
The law amends the federal criminal code
to make it a crime for a person to fraudulently claim
having received any of a series of particular military decorations
with the intention of obtaining money, property, or other
tangible benefit from convincing someone that he or she
rightfully did receive that award”
So wouldn’t selling your book
while wearing medals that you
did not rightfully earn be considered
I guess those three bronze service stars on his Vietnam Service Medal translate into three Bronze Star Medals in his book.
In his bio on Amason, Durham claims to have been awarded four Bronze Stars. From Amamzon: “Carroll received 4 Bronze Stars and a host of other heroic medals.He received more Bronze Stars than a lot of the current Generals in the United States army including General Pratreaus.” After reading his bio I can safely say that Durham’s arrogance is only exceeded by his idiocy.
