But his service was from January 1966 – December 1968, and he left the Army as a Private First Class. His records show no awards beyond the three medals everyone got for going to Vietnam.

Spoke at various veterans’ events and claimed that he earned numerous awards for bravery and valor during the Vietnam War. Wears his Marine Corps uniform, colonel-rank insignia and military valor decorations, including the Navy Cross, Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart military medals. “(His) story was very emotional. It was a very good story,” said Sgt. Major Joe Houle, a retired veteran. “His resume says that from ‘61 to ‘69 he went from private to colonel … unheard of,” said Houle. “(To have) two Navy crosses and eight Purple Hearts and 16 Combat Action ribbons is (also) unheard of.”
It’s still unheard of. Court records indicate Hamilton served nine months and 12 days on active duty with the U.S. Marine Corps, was transferred to the temporary disability retired list in 1962 and was discharged in July 1967. His highest rank was private first class and his only award was a Rifle Qualification Badge, according to court documents. He also may or may not have back problems for carrying around more shit on his chest than Mr. T in his hayday.
