Apparently, Paul Schroeder, the numbnuts PTSD counselor we discussed last week has become national news. Fox News says that he told his clients that he still had nightmares of the time he had shoot a machete-wielding child during one of his secret missions to Rwanda. Yeah, everyone is always talking about their secret missions in a group setting;
His admission, according to the Houston Chronicle, raises concerns about vetting procedures at PTSD Foundation of America, the faith-based nonprofit for veterans in Houston where Schroeder had worked as director of counseling since 2010.
Tax records show PTSD Foundation has been in the hole for at least three years and is carrying more than $200,000 in debt, the paper reports.
The Chronicle first questioned Schroeder’s record after interviewing him almost a year ago. He said at the time that he served three combat tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq, as well as secret missions in Africa and Central and South America.
The newspaper asked to see his discharge papers, but he never produced them. When pressed again this month, he said they were top secret.
It took them a year to figure out that discharge documents (DD214s) aren’t secret? How would we ever be able to prove we were discharged if we could only show the documentation to someone with a clearance? Think people.
And shame on the PTSD Foundation for not recognizing Schroeder as a phony the first time he started talking about secret missions to Africa. His discharge was secret but his missions weren’t? FFS.
Thanks to Pat for the link.
