Military stories from past to present, both wars.

Another Army Poser Bites the dust thanks to Mil bloggers!

February 8th, 2010 Posted in The SandGram v1.0

ABC newsThe Poser Posse at work (Mil Bloggers) has helped nab another fine douche bag and contributed to his arrest by the FBI.  Michael Patrick McManus was arrested last night by the Houston FBI on charges related to the Stolen Valor Act.  Mrs. GreyHawk at the Mudville Gazette made a nice “Wanted, Dead or alive” poster on this guy and soon the hunt began.  Some folks in Houston came up with his identity followed by CJ Grisham identifying all the different medals and awards McManus was wearing on his uniform. Turns out that he served in the Army from 1984 to 1987 and never passed the rank of Private first class.

If I was King for the Day, I would send this Turd over to Major Pain in Afghanistan, put him on the front of the line and make him walk a patrol down the middle of some God forsaken road, endure IED’s, and firefights along side of real hero’s so that he can earn the medals he was wearing.

ABC News did a great piece on this guy… check it out here.  

 PS, on a side note, John (EX-Marine) Murtha died today at 77.  Back to the main news though, McManus will face a Federal Judge in the next few weeks down in Houston TX.
