I don’t get it. How’d they figure it out?
Federal authorities say he was spotted earlier this month at another event, the Marine Corps Annual Birthday Ball, wearing several distinguished medals.
“He was wearing the Navy Cross, two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars and just about every medal in the book,” said Major William G. Dragan, who attended the event and told ABC News that he immediately became suspicious of Weilbacher…
Weilbacher’s girth also raised suspicion, Dragan said. “He is massively overweight, something like 400 pounds, and yet he claimed he had just left the Marines, which did not add up because he could never meet USMC physical standards,” Dragan said.
I think he wanted to be found out.
“Speaking of fake soldiers,” you say, “what’s up with our old pal Jesse Macbeth lately?” Wonderful things!
