Oh, Look…It’s another leftist lying about his military service: Army records at odds with Occupy veteran’s claims
The claims of a dedicated member of the Occupy Buffalo movement that he saw combat in Iraq and Afghanistan are not supported by Army records.
Christopher M. Simmance has told several media outlets, including The Buffalo News, that he served as many as three tours of duty in those war zones and that he was severely injured in Afghanistan.
Service records obtained from the Army, however, show he was stationed at Fort Lewis, Wash., for three years and he left the active-duty Army in January 2001 — before the 9/11 terror attacks.
Simmance says his records are “incomplete” and that he “stands by” his claims of serving in the Special Forces, of being wounded in an RPG attack in Afghanistan, of also serving in Gaza, and of only having ten years to live due to his injuries.
Oh, and he claims to have served in “The Valley of Elah.”
We all know that the military has been known to screw up records once or twice before, but Murdoc’s not holding his breath that this guy is genuine. First of all, some people claiming to know him say that he’s “exaggerated” his service record. Second of all, many of the places he says he’s served seem to come from movies. Finally, the guy’s own mother “doesn’t believe any of it.”
