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.

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.

Hey Patfatdaddy I am very thankful for what you do for our Vets. I am a Marine Corps Veteran myself and Purple Heart Recipent and I can tell you that there are a lot of these guys out there. I have been out for about 6 years now and I come across Navy Seals and Delta Force guys at a rediculous rate lol. I'm not sure how the Army does their business but I know that Marines get a Form DD-214 when they are dischared and it tells you exactly what MOS is and what medals they have received and if they have been deployed and when. I am sure every branch of the military has some kind of form like this. If I were you I would ask for a copy of this before taking armchair hero's on hunting and fishing trips. There are alot of veterans out there that truly are desearving of these trips. If you need guys to take let me know and I can send you some no [censored] guys.

I carry a copy of my DD214 in my phone. If I were working with vets, I would ask to see their DD214. I show mine at HD and Lowes to get the discount.

The guy that duped us had a fake ID and a fake DD 214. All I can do is talk to these guys and try to get a feeling that they are telling the truth. Brian Culp fooled the VA Medical Center so I will just have to trust my gut.

Just a quick note. Not all medals are on everyones DD 214. For instance, I got out and several months later a medal showed up in my mailbox. I was told it is on a DD 215 by a recruiter who called one day 5 or 6 years ago. I have never seen my DD 215 personally so IDK.

Go to your county veteran's service office. They can get all of this fixed up for you.

Good afternoon all;

I ended up here pursuing links about Brian Culp. Someone mentioned that he should have been satisfied with his honorable service. The problem is - his service wasn't all that honorable. I was his first sergeant for a few months and his lack of character and ability to con some people showed quickly. We caught him in lies about his prior service and even daily duties in 2002 or so, but he was able to con the 4ID division sergeant major into taking him as a driver. When he was caught in those lies, they left him behind while we deployed. I guess that he was eventually sent to 13th Support command and had a short deployment. He's been lying and abusing his status ever since.

Thanks for the info. There is nothing about this guy that is honorable. Sure wish a real Ranger would come across him and school him a little.
