N.C. man posed as officer, Marines say

By Associated Press | May 8, 2010

WILMINGTON, N.C. — A man who pleaded guilty last year to altering an identification card after he was spotted in the uniform of a three-star Marine general is under suspicion of posing at an April ceremony as a highly decorated Marine colonel, authorities say.

Michael Hamilton, 67, of Richlands wore a Marine uniform at Jacksonville’s Vietnam Memorial during a military recognition day ceremony last month, Marine investigators said this week. Authorities added Hamilton was photographed wearing several rows of medals including the Navy Cross, the second highest award for valor.

Investigators from Camp Lejeune said they searched Hamilton’s house on April 26, two days after his picture was published in the Jacksonville, N.C., Daily News. An evidence report said they recovered a blue dress uniform blouse with seven service ribbons and 18 medals. The report didn’t specify the medals recovered. It is a federal offense to claim or wear military decorations, punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine.

Hamilton has not been charged and the investigation is ongoing, said Major Nat Fahy, a spokesman for Marine Corps Installations East.

A man who answered Hamilton’s home telephone said Thursday evening that he refused to comment. The man, who also refused to give his name, said he was Hamilton’s brother.

Hamilton told the Daily News April 26 that he served in a covert unit that worked in Laos and Cambodia and that he was sworn to secrecy. Hamilton refused to provide any documents supporting his claim. “As far as every medal that I have been awarded, every ribbon, they’re mine; and I’d give them all back for the 286 men I lost,’’ Hamilton told the paper.

In a biography distributed at the April ceremony, Hamilton said he was promoted from private first class to colonel between 1961 and 1969 and was awarded 80 medals, including two Navy Crosses. An affidavit filed by investigators with the search warrant said the highest rank Hamilton attained was private first class. Hamilton served only nine months and was discharged in February 1962, according to the affidavit

Amazing Crabby. A smart man with very good educational credentials.
Serving as Sgt in the USMC reserves is no disgrace and he should be proud of that. Instead, he fcuks it up by lying and saying he was in Vietnam. Very stupid move by someone who probably would have been elected otherwise.

Of course the Dems called George Bush (43) a draft dodger for serving as a fighter pilot in AF Reserve but worship Clinton who lied to get a deferment. Blumenthal's people are already saying that the Times printing the truth is a dirty Republican trick.

I hope the voters hand him his arrse in little pieces.

Trust the Democrats to appoint a liar as Attorney General. Obama is easily taken in.

Yessss... a couple of problems there.

1. He's the AG of Connecticut, not the United States.
2. Obama didn't appoint him as AG. In fact, nobody appointed him. He was ELECTED by the people of Connecticut.

It might help your cause if you knew what you were talking about before you start gobbing off.

Trust the Democrats to put up such a dodgy character as candidates.

OT but let’s face it our politicians aren’t much better. Who was it again who claimed to have sat in the stands at Newcastle United to watch a player who’d retired before he was born at a time when there were no seats? Who was it who claimed to have stowed away on an aircraft bound for the Caribbean from an airport which didn’t have Caribbean flights at the time?

Yes, but she only 'mis-spoke'. She didn't fail to tell the truth or anything.

Fcuk my old boots. Will Brits who know fcuk all about how American politics works please wind their necks in?

The Democratic Party didn't "put him up" to anything. For most high-ranking offices, there is usually a primary process where the electorate who've identified themselves as identifying with a party decide who the party's nominee is. There have been quite a few incumbents recently who've found this out the hard way- and a few more today (probably).

You don't have to have the backing of a party to be their nominee for the main election. As a voter you don't even have to be a member of the party to vote in a primary, and- in some cases- there are open primaries where you don't even have to be registered as a Republican or a Democrat to vote.

"Another bright sunny day in the Tuzla valley..." as whoever used to host the MND(N) conference call would say! Poor old Hilary - did she really imagine that it was like that or more importantly that the CNN/sky footage wouldn't label her a liar to her face?


I say "poor old Hilary". What I meant was lying lawyer skank whore bitch feminist apologist Hilary.

Wow, I should have joined the Marines.. I was in the Army for 14 years and only got to Staff Sgt.

I would absolutely love to hear his story behind those promotions.
