Curtis Jack Roush; Canadian phony

| December 15, 2016

Our friends at Stolen Valor-Canada send s their latest bust. This fellow, Curtis Roush who claims to have earned a Navy Cross, a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Medal and a Purple Heart during a brief stint in the Navy reserves in the late 60s.


He was an executive member of the Smithville Legion until he was busted out. From the Grimsby Lincoln News;

Curtis Roush has resigned from his position as first vice president of the branch and volunteered to not enter any Royal Canadian Legion branch after it was discovered he likely didn’t earn two United States Navy medals he was pictured wearing.

“They’re probably right,” Roush said when asked about allegations he wore the Navy’s Purple Heart and U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Medals, despite not earning them.

“It’s something I deeply regret,” he said. “There are a lot of people there (at the Legion) that I respect.”

The Legion sent out this letter to it’s membership;

Another of those magical fires, this one in 1982, conveniently took out his documentation. The military should really look into the reason that so many military records burst into flames.

Roush said he was in the U.S. Naval Reserves in 1967 and 1968 before receiving a medical discharge. Roush provided the News with a copy of his discharge, dated July 1, 1969. The document refers to an honourable discharge, and recommendation for re-enlistment.

If Roush wanted to cooperate, he’d give us his social security number so we could find his records, but he doesn’t seem to want to be helpful for some reason.

    Well if he volunteered to be an LP he would have earned all those Medals.
    As Eon said to the Baby New Year.
    “Oh those ears, they’re huge.”

    “They’re probably right.” Probably? Look, if you are asked about two medals that you are wearing and the questioner says others doubt that they are yours by right, Is that what you say in response? What a knucklehead. Then he pens a letter resigning, saying his records were burned up, and adding that he will be exonerated. Cripes. I guess he fears prosecution and isn’t going to admit shit. If this keeps up, I’m going to stop watching reruns of Sergeant Preston of the Yukon. We have enough of these bastard posers. We don’t need to import their posery.

    • Steve says:

      Agreed. That was one of the most hollow ‘apologies’ I’ve seen.

      Trying to fence-sit between apologising and maintaining innocence doesn’t accomplish either you fuckbag douchecanoe.

    CURTIS JACK ROUSH is wearing the Enlisted FMF Warfare pin…They weren’t giving that out in the 60’s, and I know that for a fact – if he was with an FMF unit he would be eligible for the FMF ribbon (different set of quals for that). I wore both stating in 2002 because I qualified for both (ribbon during my first FMF tour, pin during the second tour). There was no “grandfathering” that I remember during the time.

    Motherfucking coscksucking assclown…

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      All else aside about this asshole, how does one say of those that accused him of falsely wearing a US Purple Heart Medal that “They are probably right.” Probably right? About a Purple Heart? This asshole is Royal Canadian Asshole.

    • MSGT_RET says:

      The Fleet Marine Force Ribbon was awarded between 1984 and 2006. It was replaced in 2006 by the current 3 versions of Fleet Marine Force insignia. Neither award is retroactive, so service in the 60’s doesn’t qualify.

  5. LiRight says:

    Amazing, all of these posers seem to look alike….similar to some of the excrement floating in the East River.

  6. TankBoy says:

    I like how he goes to the records destroyed in a fire defense. He claims 1982. He was Navy. In both cases, he misses the mark. But at least he gives it the old college try.

  7. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    E-6 in two years?

    He must have really calloused knees.

    And yes, kids, I know there are cases where folks are brought in at advanced pay grades based on experience for certain skills. But bullshitting isn’t one of them.

    • Mayhem says:

      And there is still the Time in Service and Time in Grade requirements to be met, which if I remember correctly you can only waive one or the other but not both and I don’t remember if the Services even allowed waiving those requirements back then

  8. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    What a bullshit letter he wrote, doubling down on he’s going to prove he’s been telling the truth once he get those fire blackened papers back…

    Lying sack of shit son-of-a-bitch…

  9. Club Manager says:

    The red flag was his not having the NDSM with a V device. When will they ever learn to get it right.

  10. Guard Bum says:

    No one would even question this dumb fuck if he had a service dog or a vest with patches to verify his badassery.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Indeed, when I take my service gerbil out to stores with me, you would not believe the number of people who say, “Thank you for your service.” One day, I think it was in WalMart, some young lady said that to me and I replied, “It was my honor.” She glared at me, pointed at Sarge (my gerbil) and said quite harshly, “I was talking to him not you!” True story….(except the part that followed the word “Indeed.”)

      • BigHead Tom says:

        Where might I obtain one of those service gerbils? Would it fit in the pocket of my vest for when I ride my motorcycle?

    • EchoAlpha says:

      Oh we don’t care if you have a dog or a vest, we question anybody who’s story is as fuckered as this twats is!

    OH, records lost in a fire! Like, we’ve never heard that before, eh? Next we’ll hear a HOSER like him blame the military for printing their Discharge papers on Lucifer #666 grade Stationery which is very prone to spontaneous combustion, thus we hear so often about records lost due to fire, eh? well, until Curtis Jack Roush comes up with the real thing I merely say “TAKE OFF, HOSER!!!”

    • USAF Ret says:

      There was a fire…he did not like what it said on his discharge papers so he burned them to destroy the evidence.

      That way he could tell his story the way he wished it could be instead of what it really was.

      So yes; I can believe that there was a fire.

    I feel sorry for the Wife. Always the last to know..
