John Edward JOHNSTON – Door knocker? Mail clerk? Con man? 2 outta 3 ain’t bad…

We are asked to have a look at Mr John Edward JOHNSTON’s very public, high speed, low drag claims by some brothers from another mother who shared the video link below.

However, the official records tell a different story.

Mr JOHNSTON was a US Marine Corps Private First Class (E2), Aircraft Recovery Specialist (1994-98) and a US Army / National Guard Specialist (E-4) Unit Supply Specialist (2010-2011). He served for a total of 4 years and 9 months in the US military, and even using new math, that doesn’t add up to the near 20 years of service he claims.

The attached US DD214s, courtesy of our US Partners, indicate that JOHNSTON was never a Staff Sergeant of Marines nor was he a Scout-Sniper with seven combat deployments!

But, he has all the medals & dress blues…

Baby Blue Marine…

Johnston must also be a time traveller as he’s rockin’ the Medal for Humane Action which recognizes 120 days of service during the Berlin Airlift 1948-49… There are many other inconsistencies with his group of medals when his official documents are reviewed. There’s no explanation for the UK General Service Medal (Northern Ireland) along with the Gulf War (90-91) group…

His medal group indicates he was Wounded In Action twice while serving as a member of the US Army, the records do not support that claim!

Of course, no “Staff Sergeant/Scout-Sniper” would ever deploy to an operational theatre without his mail clerk credentials!

The truth is out there…
