John Mohler not even forging your own military records is safe these days, as you just found out.

And John Mohler, never , never , never lie about your military awards when Mary Schantag is sitting right in front of you.....:rolleyes:

We have your military records and your officer records, we also have the awards you forged including your forged Distinguished Service Cross. See John Mohler, once you falsify your records it's extremely difficult to un-falsify them..... even if it was done 35 years ago.

John Mohler you enjoy being the center of attention so enjoy this 15 minutes of fame, you earned it scumbag.

On the upside, great article by Bryant Jordan!!!!! (And well done Mary Schantag!!!!)

Critics: Former DoD Speaker 'Salted' War Record
Jul 17, 2013
Military.com| by Bryant Jordan

Vietnam veterans and family members, as well as families of those who never returned from the war, gathered May 18 in Branson, Mo., to recall their service and honor the fallen as part of an official observance of the Vietnam War.
As the master of ceremonies introduced keynote speaker John Mohler -- Vietnam combat vet, successful business consultant and official representative of the Defense Department’s Vietnam War Commemoration -- Mary Schantag, chairwoman of POW Network, saw looks of concern and disbelief from many in the crowd.
Schantag, who also is an expert on phony war heroes, said the emcee read a portion of Mohler’s biography. “Three Silver Stars, seven Bronze Star Medals for Valor, five Army Commendation Medals for Valor, two Purple Hearts.”
“And that’s when everybody looked at me,” Schantag told Military.com. “He stood up in front of Gold Star mothers who lost their sons, widows who lost their husbands, and he had the nerve to stand up there in front of them with all this. Despicable is not the word.”
After the event, Schantag began going over her notes and records. Not only did she learn Mohler had previously claimed to have the Distinguished Service Cross -- ranked just below the Medal of Honor -- and to have been a Ranger, a Green Beret and given a “battlefield promotion,” but she was shocked to find he had already been found out and reported to the Pentagon in 2006.
“Here he was back on the speakers’ circuit for DoD seven years later,” she said.

Next morning, she confronted Mohler.

“I looked him right in the face and said “I’m going to be your worst nightmare.”

Elias John Mohler you could still be court-martialed for your crimes.



Did You Know? Retired Soldiers and the Uniform Code of Military Justice

WASHINGTON — Have you ever heard a retired Soldier say, “They can’t touch me now; I’ve retired.”? Fortunately, for the sake
of military justice, this is not true when it comes to retired Soldiers who violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)
while they were on active duty or in a retired status.

Under Article 2 of the UCMJ, the Army maintains court-martial jurisdiction over retired personnel. Army Regulation 27-10,
Military Justice, states “Retired members of a regular component of the Armed Forces who are entitled to pay are subject to
the provisions of the UCMJ . . . and may be tried by court-martial for violations of the UCMJ that occurred while they were
on active duty or while in a retired status.” Department of the Army policy, however, does limit these trials to cases where
extraordinary circumstances are present. The Army normally declines to prosecute retired Soldiers unless their crimes have
clear ties to the military, or are clearly service discrediting. If necessary to facilitate courts-martial action, retired Soldiers may be ordered to active duty.

The regulation adds that “Retired Reserve Component Soldiers are subject to recall to active duty for the investigation of
UCMJ offenses they are alleged to have committed while in a Title 10 duty status, for trial by court-martial, or for proceedings
under UCMJ, Article 15.” Forfeitures imposed under the UCMJ, Article 15 may even be applied against a Soldier’s retired pay

That "honest broker" line just cracks me up....... How many frauds have we exposed that work for Department of Homeland Security????? (Bill Hillar was also a consultant for DHS) TS

The Nemacolin Institute

About us

The Nemacolin Institute, Inc. is a Virginia 501(c)3 corp. formed to act as the single point of contact for the Nemacolin Consortium. We:
•Serve as an honest broker in support of homeland security projects, initiatives, and technologies.
•Oversee finances and quality control for Consortium teams.

•Facilitate U.S. government acquisition from small businesses and diverse providers.

•Enable Nemacolin Institute Consortium members to achieve the broadest reach.
John Mohler has led the Nemacolin Institute for the past five years. John is supported by Steven L. “Skip” Gibson and others who also have experience running for-profit and non-profit ventures.

John founded Nemacolin Institute in 2001, because he saw a need to provide quick reaction support to facilitate Homeland Security solutions, especially along the U.S. Northern Border. John was unable to sit by and watch while the U.S. continued to be put at risk by delays caused by a rigid procurement process.

The Nemacolin Institute, Inc. was reestablished in 2011 as a non-profit organization to allow more funding to flow directly into projects.

The Institute is named after Delaware Chief Nemacolin, who helped Ohio Company explorer Thomas Cresap mark a path for a roadway through the Mid-West. Similarly, The Nemacolin Institute helps show the way by which American business and U.S. government agency can work together for the good of our country.

That's ok John Mohler, we copied most of it knowing it would soon disappear. All frauds do the exact same thing you're doing now, damage control. It ain't going to help and the snowball is only going to grow. Hundreds of folks will now start going through every aspect of your fraud life and attempt to figure out where you might have told the truth and where you lied. It's just starting.

How bad can it get, Google "William Hillar & Special Forces", Bill just got out of prison after serving two years behind bars for doing about the same thing you did...... Rest easy, it took the FBI almost 90 days to arrest Bill Hillar after we exposed him.

You could go talk to him, he's lives in the area.......:munchin

I hate to say it Jack, but John Mohler has been the treasurer of SFA11 for many years and according to their site he still is: http://www.sfa11.org/officers.html

"
Our chapter held elections for officers for the period 2012 - 2014; the appointed members of SFA XI Election Committee and Teller Committee did a commendable job in conducting a well organized, fair, and impartial election. The members were: Chairman, John Whidden, and Wally Johnson and Scott Crerar.

Our new officers are:

President: Lynn Mariano, M-6777
Vice President: Mercer (Mac) Dorsey, D-3935
Secretary: Eugene May, M-10437
Treasurer: John Mohler, D-3393
Chaplain (Appointed): Eugene (Gene) Russell, D-3308
Surgeon (Appointed): Dr. William (Bill) Glover, M-10829
President Emeritus: Charlie Norton
"
I am sure you all at SFAHQ have revoked his membership, and I hope that you have also contacted Lynn Mariano to make sure that John will be wiped from their web site (to include the numerous pictures of him). It is shameful for someone that fraudulently represents himself to be, or allows others to believe him to be a Green Beret to be a Chapter officer of the SFA.

I have known John through SFA11 for several years and until this story broke, I considered him a personal friend. I can say first hand that John has been representing himself as a Green Beret to wide audiences and that it was not a matter of "errors and rumors". T.S. is correct, he has built quite a bit of business off of his false credentials. Also, his LinkedIn profile is still up he simply switched it to private, I disconnected from it this morning.

This story is certainly going to be spread to my local network, and the word will spread around town.

All frauds that I've dealt with attempt to clean their internet profiles. As this case was breaking Mohler was in fact changing his Linked IN profile and then removed it when his story of fraud was made public.

In my opinion he needs to be investigated by the DoD and charged with fraud.

No, this is not over yet Mohler, thirty five years later your ass is now in the wind.

Now that means DOD either accepted his phony docs at face value, or took his resume/bio as written. Either way, he could be in line for serious recoup of payment, or other actions. No downside there, maybe they will start checking folks out better. I have ran into a lot of folks who were in SF slots as contractors, who never finished the course. I fired one sent to me at the SOC, his claim of SF service was he went to and failed selection.

Critics: Former DoD Speaker 'Salted' War Record
Jul 17, 2013
Military.com| by Bryant Jordan

Vietnam veterans and family members, as well as families of those who never returned from the war, gathered May 18 in Branson, Mo., to recall their service and honor the fallen as part of an official observance of the Vietnam War.
As the master of ceremonies introduced keynote speaker John Mohler -- Vietnam combat vet, successful business consultant and official representative of the Defense Department’s Vietnam War Commemoration -- Mary Schantag, chairwoman of POW Network, saw looks of concern and disbelief from many in the crowd.
Schantag, who also is an expert on phony war heroes, said the emcee read a portion of Mohler’s biography. “Three Silver Stars, seven Bronze Star Medals for Valor, five Army Commendation Medals for Valor, two Purple Hearts.”
“And that’s when everybody looked at me,” Schantag told Military.com. “He stood up in front of Gold Star mothers who lost their sons, widows who lost their husbands, and he had the nerve to stand up there in front of them with all this. Despicable is not the word.”
After the event, Schantag began going over her notes and records. Not only did she learn Mohler had previously claimed to have the Distinguished Service Cross -- ranked just below the Medal of Honor -- and to have been a Ranger, a Green Beret and given a “battlefield promotion,” but she was shocked to find he had already been found out and reported to the Pentagon in 2006.
“Here he was back on the speakers’ circuit for DoD seven years later,” she said.

Next morning, she confronted Mohler.

“I looked him right in the face and said “I’m going to be your worst nightmare.”
