The following *alleged poseur* whom I'll simply refer to as DM** was spotted at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston during the Annise Parker for Houston Mayor Victory Party on 12/12/2009, 2030 hrs (8:30 PM in Air Force time.)
Now, I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm pretty certain I'd know if there was a serving Brigadier General with TWO Distinguished Service Crosses (the only higher medal is the MOH,) a Silver Star, a Purple Heart, a Bronze Star, and get this, a Knight Commander of British Empire. He apparently also works for the CIA, based on the badge on his mess jacket.
His CIB has TWO stars--meaning Three Awards, so he must've served in Korea. Does he look like he is in his 80's? Korea was begun on June 25, 1950, and ended by an armistice on July 17, 1953. To serve, he'd have to be at least 18 on July 17, 1953, meaning he'd have been born in 1932-35. He looks damn good for an octogenarian. There is so much more wrong with his uniform-SAS wings, but no British Jump Wings. Chin Fungus as seen on MTV's Jersey Shore. His sideburns are way, way too long. Wrong shirt collar--appropriate for an occasion whee black tie and tails are worn, but not the occasion he is attending. The list goes on and on.
Maybe he's at the openly homosexual mayor's victory party in a uniform to make a statement about gays in the military. I'm not sure why he would choose this venue, as she has zero ability to change the US Congress' policy on homosexuality in the military. I'm not sure that committing a federal crime (see: Stolen Valor Act) is the best way to make a statement. I'm pretty sure the victory party was not a costume party, either.
There is so much wrong with his uniform, I'm surprised (okay, not really) that no one at the mayor's party recognized so obvious an impostor and had him escorted out. Had I been there, I'd have pinned him to the ground, pulled off his sock, filled it with his phony medals, and beat him senseless with them. Since I wasn't there, I'm relying on the denizens of Houston, TX to identify this jackass, so he may be reported to the proper authorities, and does not continue to pretend to be something he isn't, wasn't, and never will be.
CAN ANYONE IDENTIFY THIS (alleged) DOUCHE-NOZZLE?
What he is going is a completely disrespectful to all of those who has served or are serving in uniform, regardless of branch and regardless of what awards anyone has. By wearing this uniform, he is ambassador of our military and all that it stands for. I will keep updating this posting through the day with the URLs of all the other blogs covering this waste of oxygen.
