Another possible faker outed on a popular blog. Some of the pics show him in a CAP uniform but in the comments some CAP members say there is no record of him being a member. Thoughts?

Interesting.  The gentleman also says he has a PhD.  I'd love to see those credentials.

Best,

It is beyond my comprehension why someone would fake having CAP rank...

The bad part is, his uniform (from what I can see) looks pretty good. 

Unfortunately, it is entirely possible he did earn Lt Col some time ago.  The CAP picture he has is Capt with blue epaulets.

Aw, I haven't updated my .sig in a while. I just recently promoted to Grand Imperial Potentate High Llama Grand Poobah General First Rank Super Marshall Field Hockey Supervisor Generalissimo in the Civil Combat Air Scouts Patrol. I fly the highly venerated AC-145034 and shot down many Iranian F-16s over the Turkish Desert in the Great War for Constantinople (Formerly Istanbul). Now I know most of you will find my claims spurious and unverifiable but I tell you, it's all true. I have my DoDo Form 24414 to prove it.
You can't take the sky from me. Also, I can kill you with my brain. No power in the 'verse can stop me.

Anybody else notice he is wearing a blue colored nametag in pic 2 with blue CAP insignia with white railroad tracks from "SOS" dated 2011? For those of us who are real members we know the only ones who wear blue and white nametags are cadets. This has been the way it was since WIWAC in 1996.

There is no record of him in e-services. At least in OpsQuals.

He's also wearing Blue Epaulets.   He also has Hair in that Picture which leads me to think this picture was taken quite some time ago...probably around the same time that the Senior Members also had Blue Nameplates.  I had a Blue Nameplate and the Maroon epaulets when I first joined as a Senior in 1992

eServices and Opsquals only show current members.  According to some of the information provided on one of the other sites it appears he "retired" from CAP in 2011. 

Panache

What throws up a red flag for me is him posing in his AF blues with metal Lt. Col. grade insignia on his service coat and US lapels.  His comment was that they were switching between blue, maroon, and gray epaulets so he just "left them off" for the picture.


SARDOC

^^^^ yeah.   I saw that too.  "It was just for the Picture"   Sure it was.

Well the 2011 date is when it was posted to the forum, not necessarily when it was taken.  Remember, we were wearing blue epaulets back in like the late 80s.  We went from metal on the service coat/blue epaulets on shirt to maroon epaulets to gray epaulet all in the late 80s early 90s.  So again, it is possible that at one point in time (not necessarily current or today), he was a CAP Lt Col.  Of course the SOS is probably a fabrication and he really meant SLS or simply another program back then that used SOS or just a complete lie.  So he probably is not a current CAP member, but at least at one point in time he was a member.
