    Angry Army Impersonator Gets Fine And Imprisonment

    Virginia Man Found Guilty Of Faking Army Career

    ROANOKE, Va. -- A Roanoke man faces up to 35 years in prison after a federal jury found him guilty of fabricating a career in the Army.

    Randall Moneymaker, 44, claimed he had been on active duty since the early 1980s, serving as a Ranger in places such as Grenada, Panama, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Prosecutors said he used his status as a wounded soldier to obtain more than $18,000 in military disability payments. He also secured a job as a recruiter for the Army's Active Guard Reserve.

    The jury convicted Moneymaker of making false statements and theft of government property.

    He also faces a fine of more than $1.5 million. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

    Wow, what a pathetic sack of s**t.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    It's more sad that he was able to trick the government for some years. All that for 18grand? Thats pretty sad.

    He's a loser. But being able to successfully claim disability payments without having been in the Army? Mistakes can be made anywhere, but I'll bet on some red faces in that government department!

    Like everywhere, we have instances of people claiming war service etc. And it's a criminal offence. I always make sure that when I'm wearing my service ribbons that people know that I'm not a vet, simply ex-Army. (I'm proud of my service, and proud of my ribbons, they look good on my fire service uniform!)
