Joseph Offutt comes to us from Garland Texas. Where he claims that he was a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps.
In the text message shown below, Mr Offutt tells one of our sources that his dd-214 isn’t available to the public because of something that happened with his superiors. He claims that he was fired from his job. Which is an unusual remark for an enlisted Marine to make. Discharged would be the proper word a Marine would use. He also claims that no one knows his real name and date of birth (DOB).
In the next text message, Mr Offutt not only tells what his ” alleged ” actual name is. He also tells our source that he was a Corporal ( Cpl. ).
After this exchange took place. Mr. Offutt decided to use a fake account on Facebook in order to send one of our sources bits and pieces of what is supposed to be Mr. Offutt’s dd-214
Block 1. Please note the different fonts and typing lines between Allen and Jenkins. Also All dd-214’s start off with the Veterans last name, then first name and finally middle name. Mr Offutt made the claim to our source that his real name is Joseph Allen Offutt – Jenkins. If this was true, ” Jenkins ” would be the first name in box 1. Also please note in box 4A and 5 Mr Offutt claims that he is a Cpl with an E-4 pay grade scale.
In this portion of the dd-214 that My Offutt sent to our source, He is claiming in box 16 that he was treated for Rectal Trauma and for Depression. This is the first time that we at Military Phonies have ever seen any part of a Veteran’s medical files on their dd-214. Other than the dental hygiene check that is performed at your discharged physical. We blocked out Mr Offutt’s home address and signature. As the address was the same that was found on the address trace that we performed.
In the next portion of the dd-214 that Mr. Offutt provided, He graciously left his Social Security Number. Which we blocked out of course. Box 12 on this portion, Mr Offutt claims that he entered active duty on June 20, 2011 and was discharged on February 11, 2013. giving him approximately one year and eight months on active duty. ( Large arrow ). Under that where it shows total amount accumulated this period, it shows fourteen days. ( small arrow )
Actions performed by Military Phonies;
With the information which Mr Offutt was so nice to provide, We performed a single records search with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). We first used his DOB. Then we added his SSN. The results were the same.
Using the SSN that Mr Offutt provided, we also check the Combat Action Ribbon(CAR) database to see if Mr Offutt had ever earned the CAR or Humanitarian Service Medal (HSM). The results were negative.
Having collected this amount of evidence, Military Phonies then filed for Mr Joseph Offutt’s Military Service record under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Shocked? Yes, we were too. This is perhaps the quickest Entry Level Separation from Active Duty on record. Also note the difference between the dd-214 provided by Headquarters Marine Corps (HQMC) and the bits of dd-214 that Mr. Offutt provided.
Summary and conclusion;
With the information and evidence provided by our sources and Mr. Joseph Offutt himself. We can confirm that Mr Offutt did not serve on Active duty in the Marine Corps for one year and eight months. Nor did he earn the rank of Corporal. He served for 14 days total. His Delayed Entry Program ( DEP) status was the only thing listed in Box 16 ( remarks). The information seems to be missing any type or Rectal Trauma that Mr. Offutt claims.
