This one is picking up steam:

http://www.news-press.com/article/20090714/OPINION/907140322/1015/opinion

Anyone can chime in.

Gist: Mr Derrell Gardner is running for mayor of Ft Myers, Fla. He stated in his bio that he was 'in Special Forces' for 6 years.....sounds like team time?? sounds like a stint on an ODA??

Not quite. Mr Gardner did 17 months (there are no 17 month enlistments -minimum was 24) with his last duty station claimed as SWTG.....oops.....and 5 years IRR.

Got booted from the Q with no explanation......

He's in the losers bracket right now...waiting for the FBI to step in...

:cool: ;)

I like this line from the clip...

""If all the people who say they were Green Berets actually were, they'd be common as crows. But they aren't, and the fakery really angers the genuine ones.""


Throw the book at him, and then let the convicts have at it with him. It's sad that he just couldn't be happy saying he served his country, no, he had to make false claims and lie disrespecting those who have, too bad. They should just save taxpayer money and hang him.

Oh yeah.

Let me choose a profession that involves extremely close- and neverending- scrutiny of my credentials and then make up some bullshit claims that will most assuredly expose me as a fraud!

Good plan!
