    Wednesday in NJ was a funeral for Marine LT John Wroblewski, killed last week in Iraq,

    Over 1000 people attended, one was FBI agent who specializes in military impostors.

    He quickly spotted Walter Carlson, dressed as a Marine captain, with ribbons for Navy Cross, silver and bronze stars, purple hearts etc..and arrested him after he asked for details about the 58 year olds military service which he could not provide.

    What a scumbag loser!

    Disgusting.


    My dad and a couple of his friends caught a guy at work lying about being a "Navy Seal" about two years ago. There is actually a website dedicated to listing military impostors, although it typically deals with those pretending to be special operators.

    Got a guy at work, a Sgt, very unassuming looking, very mellow, easy going, total BAD-ASS!!

    Show on him on Discovery channel, highly trained dude. Sent postcards back from Aphganastan, then brought real pics back with him. Keeps getting sent over there every few months to "handle things"

    What's the big deal?

    If someone lives vicariously as a Marine and carries it to such an extent what's the harm?

    If they sought to profit from it or take advantage of people that's another thing.

    Hey AJ, its a federal crime to impersonate a military officer. On top of that, how about the guy wearing a (actually 3) purple heart medal, when the Lt who's funeral he was at never got a chance to SEE HIS PURPLE HEART.

    Total scumbag. Accomplish something on your own, dont fake it.. Its a slap to every person who ever actually served in times of combat, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT DIED, accomplishing tasks worthy of such honors.
