On the last hunting trip that I co-sponsored there was a veteran there named Brian Culp that claimed to be an Army Ranger and had been awarded two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star. Turns out he had served honorably but was not A Ranger and had no medals. You can do a web search and find him. Just search for "Brian Culp Army Ranger" and read his story. I hope n one of you have been conned by this guy.

I read the story. Looks like he's in jail now or going back to jail or something. There were several charges against him. It sucks that he actually served honorably but felt the need to embellish his story so much.

What a knucklehead. Just be proud of what you do, not what you wish you did

They used his military prints? Funny, I thought that the military prints weren't part of the FBI database, and only used for ID of the dead. (That's what they told us) smile

There is no way for someone like me to check these guys out. All I can do is ask a few questions that a military man should know and try to get a feel for a person. When I met Brian Culp he jumped out of his $40,000 truck and started telling us how great he was. I didn't like him from the beginning so I just sort of avoided him. I hope he doesn't catch any fish on that custom rod I gave him and I hope he gained 10 lbs on the food I fed him and that he can't lose that weight.
I am not going to quit honoring veterans. It is too important for them to get a "Thank you".

Patfatdaddy,

I think what you are doing is great. There isn't a way for you to check everyone's records but if someone cons you as he did they will get what's coming to them as he had. I appreciate what you are doing as I'm sure all vets do. Thanks again.

Some interesting facts about wannabes, in this case it s Vietnam veterans, but from some of my other studying, this issue covers all conflicts since WWII.
http://vietnam-veterans.us/popup/facts.html

Quote:
Interesting Census Stats and "Been There" Wanabees:

1,713,823 of those who served in Vietnam were still alive as of August, 1995 (census figures).

~ During that same Census count, the number of Americans falsely claiming to have served in-country was: 9,492,958.

~ As of the current Census taken during August, 2000, the surviving U.S. Vietnam Veteran population estimate is: 1,002,511. This is hard to believe, losing nearly 711,000 between '95 and '00. That's 390 per day.

During this Census count, the number of Americans falsely claiming to have served in-country is: 13,853,027. By this census, FOUR OUT OF FIVE WHO CLAIM TO BE Vietnam vets are not.

I am pretty sure that everyone I have ever met and believed to have been a phony was some type of special forces. I think I have met at least 100 or so in or around the Austin area and it pisses me off everytime.
