William Colvard; phony wounded warrior

| August 13, 2015

Colvard

C.D. sends us a link to WFAA which exposed William Colvard, who has been shopping a false story about him being injured in an IED attack on his convoy in Iraq. He told Tina Nealy that his wife and he were cheated out of a formal wedding because of his injuries, so she threw one for him, like she has done in the past for other wounded veterans.

Colvard was living on a legend that had begun at least two years ago, when he was honored in a “McAfee Military Moment” celebration at a Frisco Rough Riders game.

“In March of 2008, his convoy was hit by a roadside bomb which caused the Humvee he was in to roll over,” a news release said. “He [Colvard] suffered burns, a separated shoulder and hearing loss.”

The Rough Riders said the news release was based on an interview with Colvard, he approved it, and was there when it was read at the baseball game.

Colvard now concedes to News 8 that he was lying.

Colvard was a Guardsman and he spent seven months in Iraq before he injured his shoulder “diving over a wall at Camp Taji”, apparently, not for reasons that would qualify him as a “wounded warrior”. Colvard spent the remainder of his time in the Guard going through rehab for his shoulder, but it’s unclear whether or not he receives any compensation for his injury.

    Yet another scumbag crawls out from under their rock.

  2. Ex-PH2 says:

    Now, why would you dive over a wall unless you were getting shot at or something? Could it be that Slick Willy here was philandering did not wish to be caught sans culottes?

    • Hondo says:

      Possibly. Or possibly he mouthed off to or cheated the wrong guy (or group of guys) and was trying to avoid getting his butt kicked.

      • Skippy says:

        after reading some more it appears to me
        that he is a Moron and a DipStick big one at that Lol…
        we had a few of these jack-ass my last R&R to the sand pit

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      Obviously, you’ve never been an NCO who looked for a burn pit detail.

      • Skippy says:

        in 09-10 a lot of Trans Co’s were CAB and Purple Hart Shopping and it was out of control. the TCs didn’t seem to give a shit about anybody but themselves. I have about 4500 pics and about 40 SIRs to back it up… grousome and Stupid stuff on the TCs part

        • uh1av8r says:

          Not just TCs, I saw MPs and even some signal pukes doing the same thing. Everyday looking to start something for a badge and if some IDF hit with in a mile the G1 was swamped with award recommendations.

          • SFC D says:

            I accidentally hit report, my apologies! I have personal knowledge of a Signal Bde CDR and CSM with dubious CAB’s, and I’m generous with saying dubious

      • Snotcrow says:

        Hahaha, now THAT’S funny.

    Could it just be he was drunk and gravity did its thing?

    In the photo above, why do you dress up the pig in a yellow tie and corsage … before the roast?

    I am just not tracking these days!

  6. OldSarge57 says:

    I got hit in the face once by a camo net stake at the end of a rope when we were in a hurry to move positions and I wasn’t paying attention. I tell everyone the scar is from when I challenged Sadam Hussein to a sword fight. Where’s my new car?

  7. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Another pus-nutted candyassed lying snotweasel of an inbred Swamp Donkey making up bullshit stories for freebies, enjoy your newfound internet fame you glittery gargoyle gonad-ogling Shitbird!!

    Caption for the picture of Colvert above: “I can’t believe my con is actually going to work!”

  9. John from Texas says:

    Reminds me of Tim Poe. The reporters at WFAA must be tired of these follow up stories that become necessary.

  10. Jarhead says:

    His story would have been a lot more believable and probably caused him a lot less grief had he simply said, “During my enlistment, something happened that caused me brain damage. You know, the stress of having to think so much creating B. S. combat stories can really be overwhelming.”
    Personally, I am underwhelmed with this Poser/Liar/Scumbag POS/Dip Shit. BTW, that thing on his chest reminds me of the coon’s pecker the old fellow on the whiskey making show used to run shine directly down into his gallon containers ready to sell.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Purple Heart for spraining his wrist jerking off during a rocket attack… hey, if he fell off the shitter and hurt himself from the detonation on impact, it would be legit (if he were there).

  12. rb325th says:

    WTF? I will just never get these assholes who think that they have to invent some John Wayne heroics… when there Service had been Honorable, and admirable to begin with!
    now, because dumbass for whatever reason decided that it was okay to prey on the good nature of others, and trod all over the reputations of veterans to get a free wedding, it is all he will be remembered for.
    I wonder, if his spouse knew of his lies prior to the Wedding, or got the shock of a life time when she found out she married an utter fraud.

  13. OIF '06-'07-'08 says:

    Uh,,,, is that a banana peel that he is wearing for a neck tie? Does his wife know about his lies(probably so, she has a free wedding)?

    What a way to flush your service down the drain ass hole!!!!!!!!
