Michael Hamilton

I did the search and found nada...but this is local news here in NC...

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A North Carolina man facing federal charges for posing as a decorated Marine was in court this morning. Michael Hamilton appeared in federal court in Wilmington, where the judge read a list of his charges and possible penalties he could face.

If convicted, Hamilton could face a maximum sentence of more than 16 years in prison and $600,000 in fines.

The 67-year-old Richlands man is also charged with telling the VA that he saw bloodshed during combat in Vietnam. A grand jury indicted Hamilton earlier this month on charges that he lied about Vietnam battle injuries and took more than $30,000 in VA benefits for service-related injuries.

Hamilton pleaded guilty last year to altering a military identification card to represent himself as a three-star general. He paid $100 in fines and was sentenced to probation.

When Hamilton left the courtroom he had nothing to say to reporters as he made his way across Princess Street to his SUV. Hamilton is currently undergoing psychiatric treatment.

At least there's people out there still trying to do the right thing with these cases.

I believe that SF is a 'calling' - not too different from the calling missionaries I know received. I knew instantly that it was for me, and that I would do all I could to achieve it. Most others I know in SF experienced something similar. If, as you say, you HAVE searched and read, and you do not KNOW if this is the path for you --- it is not....

SF is a calling and it requires commitment and dedication that the uninitiated will never understand......

There is only one tactical principal which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time.
