Just another hero army dental lab tech. He did dental impressions on NVA during the war and got a chest full of medals (bought at your local military surplus store). Really ? a national org. like MOPH can't vet someone they're putting in charge of a region ? They can't put 2 & 2 together and see the bald faced lies on this posers papers ? I mean not even an honorable discharge ? Remarkable. Hope the VA gets back all the months they paid this loser $3k for his PTSD from building dentures under fire. From his picture it just reinforces if you see an oldfart wearing camo sporting a campaign hat and pins and medals all over just to go shopping for a six pack, you can pretty well figure they're one of these folks just like this phony.
