Papotia Reginald Wright in the news

| December 15, 2017 | 49 Comments

The New York Post writes about phony Green Beret Papotia Reginald Wright in this morning’s edition. We wrote about him late last month.

The Post interviewed some of the people in Wright’s “unit”, the 8th Special Forces Regiment New York Honor Guard and they really should have known he was fake, reading some of their stories;

[Jeff] Johnson said Wright told wild stories about his Army days, once recalling how someone ran up behind him, cut him open and removed his kidney.

“He said he was living off half a kidney,” the aspiring actor said. “He’s an amazing storyteller because he will get into details.”

Wright, who ran the vets organization with his wife, gave Johnson a Special Forces patch to put on his uniform, claiming he’d filled out all of the appropriate “paperwork” so it was above board.

“I did feel odd wearing it,” he said. “There’s a sacred aura to it.”

Wright would also refer to Johnson as a “colonel” when they were in public, which made him feel awkward since he was a major.

During his stint with the organization, he attended a Johnson & Johnson gala with Wright in New Jersey, and another gala for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, which was attended by Meghan McCain and retired General David Petraeus.

“When I look back on it I realize why he needed me there — to make it look legit,” Johnson said.

It figures that IAVA would like him since Paul Rieckhoff, their executive director, is a valor thief.

Yeah, when people hand you patches and rank insignia you didn’t earn, well, that’s the time to start questioning what you’re involved in. Don’t wait for us to come along and bust you.

    He is a Major Fuck Up!

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    (snorrttt!) Sorry, but this story is funnier than a sock full of frogs.

    It’s amazing how tough Papotia is – losing a kidney to a kidney thief, and with NO anesthetic. He must be tougher than a jar of marshmallow creme.

    I had a friend whose given name was Colonel. Must have caused a few problems when he enlisted in the Army.

  5. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    I was only an E-4/PO 3rd Class, but a lot of people call me chief.

    You know like Chief Shitting Bull, Chief Come-on-I-wanna-lay-ya, and so on.

    I wonder how soon we’ll hear about some Prosecutor investigating and bringing him up on fraud charges?

    Papotia Reginald Wright heard someone ask “How stupid can you be?” and decided to try for a World Record.

    Next thing you know he will be running for a seat in Congress.

    New York Honor Guard? And it has a SFG, too? Where do I sign up? Say what? Just when I thought I’d heard it all…

    I saw the story about this joker on Fox this morning and I thought wow we are getting two fake Green Berets in two days; and thus, Army was at last getting ahead in the Army-Navy POSer playoffs. Then I saw his name and realized he is one Jonn already outed last month. So, Manchu, I’m thinking their is no hope for Army POSers to pull ahead this year.

    We know old Pap Smear Papotia is full of shit. I can’t help but wonder what the fuck kind of Field Grade Officer Maj Jeff Johnson was to fall for this shit sniffer? Were you really a commissioned officer or did you get your commission from old Paps 8th Special Forces Regiment NY Honor Guard?? I believe I’ll find hobby horse shit before a shred of honor amongst these shitbirds!
