We discussed Brian Camacho earlier this month, here and here. He convinced the folks at Military Minds to fly him to Canada for treatment of his PTSD that he caught on his multiple deployments as a MARSOC stud to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Redacted1775 sends us a link to Gina Cavallaro of the Marine Corps Times who has been following up on the story;
And he won’t, because according to Brian Khan’s brother, Ian Khan, the 45-year-old has never served in the military.
“My brother’s a fraud. He’s obsessed with the Marine Corps but he never went in,” Ian Khan said in a phone interview.
It became clear that Camacho was really Brian Khan after a cursory search for him and his likeness online. Though his Facebook page quickly vanished after the fraud was uncovered, videos of him and his kids at a cellphone store in Harrisburg, and his true last name, were an easy match with his kids’ Facebook pages and those of other family members.
At a loss to explain his brother’s eagle, globe and anchor tattoo, Ian Khan said, “It’s all a game to him. He really believes that he went to Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Yes, his name is really Brian Khan and he’s freakin’ 45 years old and still playing dress-up. He’s never spent a day in the military, but, obviously, he has enough money to buy up all kinds of shit to stick on his uniforms. Maybe he caught the PTSD from his uniforms, especially if he’d bought them in surplus stores and the former owner had the PTSD. You just can’t get the PTSD virus out of your clothes.
So, if you’re in Philadelphia and see the little turd wearing his fake finery about town, send him our regards.
