SVC actually piquetted and bypassed Kruzynski several years ago based on a commitment from individuals on the ground that he would cease and desist from his antics.
When he recently resurfaced on “Police on Guard for Thee” FB page (12 February 2021) making claims of operational military service along with those of being both a Police Officer and a Corrections Officer our email blew up
After reviewing this image, we’ll offer the following observations on the medals Mr Kruzynski is wearing.
1 – UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) Medal – Just over 100 Canadian Forces members were awarded this medal for their service in the Middle East in 1978. Kruzynski is not on that list.
2-UN Emergency Force 2 (UNEF2) Medal – CAF members were awarded this medal for their service in the Middle East, primarily in Egypt, during the period 1973-79. Kruzynski’s actual service (1965-68) is well outside the medal’s eligibility period.
3-Police Exemplary Service Medal Awarded upon completion of a minimum of twenty years of full-time service with one or more recognized Canadian police forces. 2 years with Toronto Metro Traffic doesn’t meet the eligibility requirement. Nor is he listed on the GG’s website / Canada Gazette as a recipient.
4-Corrections Exemplary Service Medal – Recipients must have been working on or after the date of creation of the Medal (1984), and must have completed 20 years of full-time service, not necessarily continuous, with one or more of the correctional services in Canada. Kruzynski claims only 17 years service as a CO and he’s not listed on the GG’s website / Canada Gazette as a recipient.
5-The Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal – CPSM recognizes peacekeeping service performed by Canadian citizens who have served with a peacekeeping/observer mission(s) for a minimum of 30 days accumulated service. He is eligible for this medal, his claimed in Cyprus has ben confirmed.
Note, this is the “senior medal” and it’s in wrong position.
6-UN Forces in Cyprus (UNFICYP) Medal – Awarded for 90 days of consecutive service as a member of CF in Cyprus. Kruzynski is eligible for this medal, his service Cyprus has been confirmed.
SVC has been unable to determine the legitimacy of the military parachutists wings that Kruzynski is wearing, we have been in contact with a number of airborne forces experts for their assistance in determining the ground truth.
There are several more images of Mr Kruzynski wearing a much different array of medals from the first time we encountered him. The ESMs aren’t in the mix however, there are a number of WW2 medals in the group.
This is an earlier iteration of Kruzynski’s magical medals.
The UNFICYP Medal is in the senior position, it was legitimately awarded to him for service in Cyprus with the Queen’s Own Rifles. That deployment would also entitles him to the Canadian Peace Keeping Service Medal.
He’s not rocking the UNEF2and UNIFIL Medals nor the Police or Corrections ESMs.
But, he has the Defence Medal, 39-45 Star and the War Medal 1939-1945 on display, a most amazing occurrence as he wasn’t born until after the war!
The privately purchased Normandy Campaign Medal in the mix is available to anyone for just 88 dollars plus shipping and handling.
And, there’s more!
He’s also wearing the Polish September Campaign Cross 1939.
Mr Kruzynski was a Cold War infantryman who deployed to Cyprus. There was no need for him to embellish his military service but, he did…
It’s time for him to walk away from his military themed fairy tales.
