Kenneth E. Jozwiak; phony SEAL pleads guilty in federal court

| February 23, 2017 | 34 Comments

According to the Department of Justice, 67-year-old Kenneth E. Jozwiak pleaded guilty “to unlawfully exhibiting a military discharge certificate, theft of government money, making false statements to federal agents, and attempting to obstruct an official proceeding”. He claimed to be a Navy SEAL and that he was awarded four Purple Hearts for his service in Vietnam. He was busted by the VA’s Office of the Inspector General out of Cleveland, Ohio;

Jozwiak exhibited a military discharge certificate in 2014 that claimed, in part, that he was a highly decorated Vietnam War veteran, that he was a four-time recipient of the Purple Heart, and that he was a Navy SEAL — all entries Jozwiak knew were totally false, according to court documents.

Additionally, Jozwiak defrauded the Department of Veterans Affairs of $2,289 through veteran’s entitlements he received between August and December 2014. In January 2015, Jozwiak made several false statements to federal agents about his fraudulent activities and his military service, and that he attempted to obstruct an official proceeding by tampering with a material witness, according to court documents.

I guess he’ll be sentenced May 18th.

Thanks to our buddy, Andy Kravetz, for the link.

    Oh great. Here we go again.

    Another phony SEAL in the open.

    You are cleared hot.

    Ass hamster… bet he gets probation and restitution. Should be getting a couple years worth of cockmeat sammiches, ghey whey and tube steak at the BTJT Deli.

    Toad

    Don’t the Rangers get any respect. Every damn one has to be a SEAL.

    Fuck him.

  5. Graybeard says:

    Glad to see him get some justice.

    Really – he expected folks to believe he was a former SEAL at 67 years old? Is he listening to Scrufface for his inspiration?

  6. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Another one down and a shit ton more to go…

  7. Claw says:

    Sounds to me that another of Forgin Frank’s mail order DD214’s didn’t pass the sniff test.

    Oh, well, you get what you pay for.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. (Kudos to NH Sparky for coining that phrase)

    Bubba & Thor Get ’em one more…

    The Phony SEAL business is booming. I saw a commercial for a show or something called “SIX” and it’s about you know what. As soon as I heard that I switched channels, not being able to bear even a commercial for another SEAL spotlight show. It’s both sick and laughable. Time was, the SEALs were quiet and while they were known, especially by in-service folks, they weren’t plastered all over the place as they are today. That benefits others in other services who prefer to go about their jobs without fanfare. PR is usually nice, but it can also be a curse.

    You’d think the feds would be interested in going after Sealy McChippendale, if in fact he’s collecting 100 percent disability and flashing a retired O-5 ID, but what the hell do I know?

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Now there’s a name from the past. He was of the MS Soup Sandwich and Gen. Ballduster McSoulpatch era, wasn’t he? I believe that will one day be known as TAH’s finest hour–even if the hour lasted many, many months.

  11. CWORet says:

    The only thing I find unusual about this is that he was busted by the VA’s Office of the Inspector General out of Cleveland, Ohio.

  12. Just An Old Dog says:

    I’m wondering if or when he served at all, and under what circumstances.
    There seems to have been a spate of Nam’ and Beruit era vets who have decided to try to fuck around and get on the stolen valor bus in the past decade.
    This one took it a step farther and got on the VA gravy train.

  13. Carlton G. Long says:

    While I am always glad to see another poser go down in flames, I can’t help but wonder why the VA isn’t so diligent about cleaning house regarding internal shenanigans as it was in clawing back the $2,289 from this jabroni.

  14. Jimmy B. says:

    4yrs, 3 months for this phony. Way to go DOJ!!!
