BUMPED AND UPDATED: BUSTED
A more in depth article here. No surprise when I read this: "DPS officials say Rodriguez got discounts and some special treatment as a result of posing as a war hero. "
I wonder when people read about guys like this if it makes them think twice about offering discounts, buying someone lunch, etc...
His name is John W. Rodriguez and he claimed to have been a gunnery sargent in the 7th ESB, USMC as best I can tell from the video. He claimed he was deploying to Fallujah to get out of an alcohol related offense.
He also claimed to have been awarded a Silver Star and Navy Cross.
The Marine Corps has no record of him. He's wanted for fraud and federal crimes.
