Fake SF Guy Has a Wikipedia Page

Without further ado, I present to you LTC Carlos Caban Cruz, aka "Night Dragon." I shit you not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Caban_Cruz

I am a little pressed for time, so I would appreciate a little back up from the regular participants in this forum.

Please download all of his pics, particularly the one showing his left shoulder, and make a copy of the entire Wiki page. I have not had time to do any further web searches under Mr. Cruz's name, but I have a suspicion that it would not be a wasted effort.

We will need to refer Mr. Cruz to the Assistant Attorney General in Los Angeles for prosecution under Stolen Valor statutes.

We will also want to refer him over to the POW Network. Mr. Cruz claims to have been a POW.

Thank you for your assistance.

Guns free.

Christ on a cracker.......where do these guys come from?

This guy's beret-wearing skills could be one of the worst ever.

Sweet Jesus. Also of note is that he is claiming the equivalent of the Israeli CMOH, one of only 40 ever awarded.

Pardon the AO intrusion, gentlemen, but there's a plug-in for Firefox called 'Scrapbook' that allows you to capture and download web pages or entire sites, including photos. It's free and automatically installs once you download.

May save some time.

Back to the boat...

Well, of course! He's Puerto Rican!

How else would you expect him to be nominated for an Isreali award?

Sheesh....

WTF? Sweet Baby Jesus. What kid of childhood did this guy have to make him do such a thing? It is wikipedia it is very easy to go in there and change things. A little creative editing is all we need.

So why would a general officer, who can see in an instant that this POS is FOS, even consent to having a photo taken with him?

I like his left sleeve patch ordering...., and I especially like his beret wearing in THIS photo:

So, Magician, is he a family member?

I guess he wanted people to know that he was both Special Forces and an Airborne ranger so he sewed on the tabs in a far more readable order....

Now that I think about it, thats the kind of initiative and derring-do that I would expect in a guy with his qualifications.

Maybe it's just my suspicious nature, but that SgtMaj's shit doesn't look right either.

Sooooooo much CRAP! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I like the Presidential Citation for above and beyond during Hurricane Katrina....issued to the United States Coast Guard. Of course, I SHOULD know this LEGEND seeing as how in the photo where he is leaning in across the Jewish MOH recipient showing his SF ABN RGR tabs out of order he is wearing Army Medical Specialist Corps Insignia on his collar. Must be a PA too.

POW Network alerted and will soon be talking to "Mr Pizza Maker Beret Wearing, Qualification Tabs Out of Order, Master Poser of the Realm Hero-man"

he should go and have a Schiltz Light with all that bullshit inside him- it would clean him out...

I like what he got his ARCOM for. Simple and to the point, no explanation needed.

I like to peruse this forum but generally stay in my lane. Just wanted to mention an observation and i'll be back out of the way.

It shows him receiving a medal from General Hollingsworth and it says "Vietnam War". It then shows his certificate with General Hollingsworth's signature and the date from August of 1969.

Every site i've found has General Hollingsworth's Vietnam tours as 1966-1967 and 1971-1972.

Hope it helps. Back to my hole!

Given his other accomplishments, I suspect the ARCOM came with this bit of heroism that he did before lunch one day.
