Eric Wolfe; phony veteran

Eric Wolfe

Rachel sends us a link to the story of Eric Wolfe out in Arizona who has found himself in a bit of a mess there. According to the state Department of Transportation, he tried to get a veteran designation on his driver license and specialty plates designating the same using a forged DD 214;

At one time, Wolfe partnered with a Valley nonprofit benefiting animals to train dogs for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, using his story of a military career and subsequent PTSD.

In March, Wolfe supplied a falsified DD Form 214, the document a member of the military gets when being formally discharged, to a Motor Vehicle Division representative when applying for the driver license designation reserved for veterans. Alerted by investigators from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General that Wolfe never served in the U.S. Air Force, as he has claimed, ADOT detectives started an investigation and determined that the form was forged.

Wolfe used the same forged military document to apply for two specialty license plates designated for veterans, one for his vehicle in March and one for a newly purchased motorcycle about two months later.

Dude looks to be a border-line midget, I guess he figured he’d not get caught if he said he was Air Force it would be more believable than one of the other services.

The Arizona DOT wants to talk to you if you made donations to Wolfe, there’s contact information at the link.

ADDED: From ABC13;

Wolfe claimed he had suffered from PTSD himself after a deployment to Afghanistan as a canine bomb handler.

Dogs and PTSD – like no one thought of that before.

From KTAR;

Earl Fisher with ADOT said Wolfe used the paperwork of a veteran to forge his own copy.

“He took this (form), belonging to another veteran, and placed his own name and Social Security number on it,” Fisher said.

    Gasp, he has returned! Do not trust the false lies of this rotten imp! He is a despicable charlatan who must be cast from this world back to the 5th dimension from whence he came!

    The VA OIG actually did something? And when they do, it seems to be something that’s in NPRC’s lane. Come to think of it, is there a single entity for DoD that verifies service? If not, there probably should be. It seems the VA only has on file what folks give them.

      It seems the VA OIG in Arizona seems to be a lot more aggressive going after shit bags then a lot of places

    • Kevin says:

      D the VA can check a National database of prior service for any branch. I used it when I worked for VA in AZ, before the crisis.

    Is it just me, or is his head shaped like those yellow cartoon minions heads on the “Despicable Me” movies?

    If you haven’t read the June comments regarding Tater Tot or it has been a while since you have, do yourself two favors. 1) Read them, and; 2) Don’t have anything in your mouth when you do.
