Here we present Richard Jay Davis.
He was sent to us by a fellow member of the Marine Corps League he belonged to.

Richard was in the local paper as being in Special Forces during Vietnam and also being a POW. Richard claimed Airborne, Ranger, SF, Purple Heart, 2 CIBs, and that he was a 68 day POW before he escaped.

One look at his picture and we knew he was a turd. We tried to contact him a number of times and finally made contact. The link to his interview can be found here:

After this interview, we hard told he quit the marine Corps League.

It's been pointed out that Campbell did indeed offer an Airborne course during that time. We knew that. A number of places did. He could have corrected us had he also known. It was also possible to become SFQ'd a number of ways back in that era. We don't want to write a where, what, when for these turds to further their lie.

Do you have any idea how hard you have to work to spend five years in the Army and get out as a PVT, E-1? That took a lot of effort!

I'm wondering if his buddy in admin. issued him a CIB? That would not be a first especially with the thousands of orders being processed in RVN daily.

I'm think all his bling was created while he was a clerk,, maybe by himself??

The listed ARVN cross of gallantry award is not the type clerks are awarded..

Could be...there was an admin guy/kid....Spec4 in my unit that was busted for issuing CIB's to Remfs for cash...he had a drug habit (heroin laced pot)...got a nice fat UCMJ and a trip to LBJ..... (Long Binh Jail).
Wasn't a 'bad' kid....just 'this is your brain on drugs' type.
Hell, we were the same age.
