Alex Popovic Subway sandwich shop commando

| June 13, 2012

A lovely young lady who will remain nameless here sent the following piece to us about a guy she met in her local Subway sandwich shop while he was slicing and dicing and telling his war stories. She thought it was a little odd that he’d being working in a sandwich shop after he told her that he’d been advising President Bush on strategy for the global war against terror and did some research on the guy.

She’s been looking for a venue to publish her research when she discovered TSO’s battle against uncommon stupidity last week and settled on TAH.

This is Alex Popovic, CEO and Founder of Greyside Group; you can view his website here

By their own admission they have the “Highest Legal, Moral, and Professional Business practices in the Industry”.

Let’s look at the first paragraph of his bio:

“Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Mr. Popovic immigrated to the Unites States in 1986, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1994. Earning a degree in Chemical Engineering at Florida State University, he garnered minors in mathematics and physics as well. In 1993 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, rising to serve in elite U.S. Special Operations units for 10 years. Mr. Popovic participated in classified and unclassified missions throughout the world, including Liberia, Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. He was awarded the Silver Star for valor and the Purple Heart for wounds sustained in combat. He has briefed former President George W. Bush, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, and various national security advisors and national military command council members on strategies and tactics during the Global War on Terror after the events of 11 September 2001. ”

WOW! Impressive!

– Silver Star Recipient-
– Purple Heart Recipient
– Briefed former President George Bush and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld

The Real issue. Confirmation from the Marine Corps-



A degree at FSU? I see an Aleksandar Popovic with a degree from FSU….but he is a Serbian politician.

What a Coincidence!

Sounds like this guy would be working at a Subway store, not briefing former President Bush.

Which reminds me……he WAS a Subway manager, and managed to work his way up to owner. Maybe the CAR is a sandwich, not an award? (Chicken Avocado Ranch?)

Question of the day – With the Stolen Valor issue- doesn’t it seem like this poser has built an industry on military honors he has not received?

I’ve seen her documentation, but I’m not publishing it here at her request since she’s also approached ABC News.

    Yeah, he has his bullshit all over the place, claiming this and that regarding service with the USMC. He also seems to have tried to carve himself a niche in the real estate sales business by hawking VA foreclosed homes to all comers. I wonder if the AZ statutory requirement that persons be honest, truthful and of good character will cause him a problem. (Oh, and Alex, throw a few more black olives on mine, will ya?)

    Not sure if this was found and posted at an earlier date.

    He dodges calls big time.

    And personnel in the relator’s office have been informed of his assclownery.

    I do not know if they have done anything, but it seems this disease is still operating in that area.

    and THIS:

    Are why Snapperhead ended up slinging sammiches. In the top case, he was allegedly spending other peoples’ money. In the lower case, he was allegedly stealing other peoples’ intellectual property. If I were him, I’d stick to sammiches.

    I know this ass…I just saw Semperfi my home? This bitch is such a disgrace to the Marines. Now he’s targeting veterans to con. I hope just one of these guys figures out what a poser, lying fake fuck he is and caves his balding fat fucking face in. Can my wish really come true?

    He’s also been volunteering with the newly elected Gov of AZ so he has been keeping his head down hoping no one contacts that office and tells them his real story.

    He played the disabled vet/ hero card there and is looking to get appointed in Jan to his staff.

      You have to be kidding me!

      Well, I will say this. This shitbag ducks calls in his private employ(s).

      He will not be able to do that working in a public office as a staffer.

      Man, oh, man. I was bored.

      Not anymore.

      Time to let the fun begin!
