Default AGT war hero Tim Poe may have lied about combat injury

I know many here think the show is a waste but did anyone see the performance and hear the guys story?

Of course most want to believe the feel good story but people are coming forward with info that he lied about it.

i think they ought to skin this puke...he should be prosecuted under provisions in the Stolen Valor Act. As a combat veteran and a career military officer i find few things more disgusting than some bottom feeding liar trying to profit from this type of fraud. It is the highest form of insult to the real heros who at some point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life." He is scum.

Reminds me of one of the THT members, Capt. Jack Sparrow that touted himself as a Huey pilot shot down in Viet Nam and rescued by the Coast Guard. One of our members in Australia did some research and called out Sparrow on his claim. Guess the evidence was too compelling against him. Sparrow disappeared never to be heard from again. No loss, he was a huge, foul mouthed jerk that had a following of lemmings here. Pathetic.

big difference in a show being "contrived" and a contestant commiting fraud and debasing legitimate service members by lying about military service and purple hearts

TV is a lie. Subject matters not. Including most of the news you see.

............the only thing truthful are my fishing reports.

But in all seriousness, I know nothing about Poe. I do know that DOD up until recently was not giving PHs to TBIs. Did the guy claim to have a PH?

TV is fantasy based entertainment...lying about medals won from combat duty in order to profit from it is a felony...you are obviously not a veteran...and yes, i believe all of your "fishing" reports.

Why yes, it is. Did he say he was awarded a PH?

The guy may very well be a fraud, but I will tell you this. Most who contrive a story such as this do not include specifics/details that involve other AD personnel who can come forward and verify or deny the event, and most who contrive a story such as this would not know or give the level of detail he has provided with regard to the multiple locations of his alleged post trauma tx.

BTW medals are not won. It is not game.......they are awarded.

yes he did say he was AWARDED a purple heart and yes as a Naval Office with 27 years of service i know the correct terminology..its early and im typing on a damn phone and there would be records if any of this, had it happened. even the Army keeps records..of course the Navy keeps far better ones!

Wife and I like that show...its just entertainment but this guy ought to be put before a firing squad if in fact he did lie.

I hope its not true that he lied. If it is all I can say is PATHETIC.
