Richard “Dick” Cantner currently living in Vero Beach, Florida, was busted on his lies 14 years ago. As is all too often the case, when he moved from Pennsylvania after being busted to Florida, he just had to start his embellishing nonsense all over again.
One person that exposed him in Florida recently posted the following:
“Since his arrival in Vero Beach, Richard G. Cantner, AKA “The Colonel” has earned our respect over the years as he spoke of his heroics in Vietnam. After all, he said he was a retired and/or reserve Lieutenant Colonel, (LTC), flew AH-1 Cobra’s in Vietnam, was shot down 3 times, earned 3 Purple Hearts, 2 Distinguished Flying Crosses and was Ranger, and Airborne qualified. In addition to this, he says he served as an infantry platoon leader, flew F-14’s for two years, and then was eventually called back to active duty at age 55 and asked to fly Apache’s after years of absence from active duty to fly and fight in Afghanistan.”
Sergeant Cantner just couldn’t be proud of his actual service for some reason. Why would a Vietnam veteran with a Bronze Star feel compelled to embellish his career beyond recognition?
This all too familiar story about military phonies starting their lies all over again is why we do not delete them from our blog over time. Richard Cantner and those like him give us no choice but to leave evidence of their dishonor online forever.
Richard Cantner…knock it off already.
