He came on here claiming that everyone was lying about their service then claimed to been awarded the Silver Star. Then backed down and claimed to have the bronze star. Now he has disappeared after this being pointed out for all to see.

Another wannabe, he was caught on several other points too. Guess he took his hat and ran.[:0]

    He had to go back to the 3rd grade? Maybe Mommy took his computer away? Glad he`s out of here...

    His account is still opened, but I never heard a response to me telling him to knock it off, he just stopped posting.

    I kind of miss him, you didn't even have to think to blow holes in his stories, maybe he's reading up on another outfit to be part of [:)]

    one thing to consider. Suppose he is what he says, he certainly has a right to be bitter over the treatment vietnam era veterans received, and I hope he finds some ways to vent his anger other than at those who mean him good will ...

    It's either PTSD or he's a poser.

    Which is a stupid thing to do, when you claim combat decorations in a forum full of Vietnam vets.

    I will have to go with a poser, a vet who had the awards he claimed would know there ranking and at least keep them staight in the threads (Silver Star to a Bronze Star) and if you noticed he never really answered with any real details. WOW were still debating him [:)]

    I agree with Riverhook, he was a full of s**t as a Christmas goose.
    He tried to cover it with aggression. The old theory of "throw a bunch against the wall and see what sticks".

    He spikes interest here because we desire to come here and he gives us that reason. I look in here to the Viet Nam section everyday, but usually nobody has posted so I move on. When I see his name I know it'll be a rousing time, although at his expense. Because he sets the stage to be made fun of.

    What if he really was a combat copter pilot, like the "Chickenhawk," author was. He would be a big contributor to the Viet Nam section. But even if he was a nut, like in "One Flew Over The Coo-Coo's Nest," he would be a likable nut, as long as he stayed near us. We've all served with "unique" people--and liked them. They made us smile.

    It's only when a nut gets out there in public, with persons who never served, that he is in danger of being taken advantage of or of being made fun of. Veterans don't do that to fellow veterans. We are comfy with our ego's because we have proved to ourselves that we will fight. The public still doesn't know this about itself. Never will either. Their chance to find out has passed.

    Sting: Speaking of "odd ducks" when I got to Nam in 68 I met a guy who had been there 33mo and was trying to extend. It seems "Jodie" had been with his wife and she wanted a divorce, his state of residence would not allow the divorce while he was in a combat zone.
    The fellow was still there when I rotated...often wanted to know how it turned out. I told him when I left that if he got killed, She would get the money. He looked at me like a light came on, but said nothing.

    What I want to know is when the Alleycats of the 282nd got Charlie models. When I left all we had was Bravo models and we were running out of parts for them. Alleycat 2 sends.

    Just on a whim, I googled "Joker 19" one night back when he was on his rant. Very interesting, came up some dude in a speed boat (?) Like someone already said, as I did in a previous post, he could be real, and be demonstrating symtoms of untreated PTSD, or other "issues." Every time I see something like this, it is so ironic for me, because when I got home in the fall of 1970, word was that if you wanted a job, a place to live, or even a date, you'd better have never been to the place called Viet Nam. Now we have politicians and hollywood types being exposed for lying about being one of us, I guess that means everyone else can come out of the woods, now (?). I am greatful to Jesus, and the therapy He lead me to get. I have a good life, and I'm not just waiting to die anymore. He is my Rock. Flapjack
