We have been tracking Wahya / Cameron since November 2022 when a number of articles were published in the New Hamburg, Ontario region detailing the impact of his claimed combat service in Afghanistan and the personal struggles that followed.
There were a couple of red flags in the stories including the confused details of casualty producing incident occurring in early July 2007 while the nomenclature used to describe his claims caused us to have a closer look.
“One day, when Gagage Wahya was serving in the armed forces during the Afghan war in July 2007, his troop’s (COR342) convoy was ambushed.
“We had an IED that was buried in the ground and in the middle of the road that went off,” recalled Wahya who’s now a fire keeper at Crow Shield Lodge in New Hamburg. Then there were gunfire exchanges for about 20 minutes.
“I struggle with PTSD, with complex trauma,” Wahya said, recounting one of the most troubling experiences he faced in the military. Two people died and six were injured as a result of the incident. “And that’s where a lot of my PTSD comes from,” said Wahya, who still undergoes counselling…
…Wahya was 18 years old when he joined the military and served for almost five years.
The first two years were with the armed forces and the last two and a half were with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The Anishinaabe man was a victim of the Sixties Scoop, a term that refers to the mass removal of Indigenous children from their families into the child welfare system.
“Those were the types of things that I had to go through with verbal abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse, and sexual abuse for years and years and years until I emancipated myself and unfortunately went down a path of coping that wasn’t healthy, which was drugs and alcohol,” Wahya said.
He went into service as a teenager thinking it’d solve some of his problems, but instead they “exacerbated” them…
Somewhat impossible for this individual to have served in Kandahar during the timeframe he claims that he was involved in an IED strike as he was busting the moves in these images from June / July 2007!
Why do individuals like Wahya / Cameron create a faux military persona and claim to have been followed home by the demons of Kandahar and what do they gain from their actions?
Over the course of the past 10 years, it’s become apparent that the vast majority of individuals reported to us are nothing more than grifters & con artists who lie, cheat or steal for their own personal gain.
They have used their “special status” to attend armed forces ceremonies and parades, military themed galas and high profile sporting events as VIP guests. Some have participated in fully funded overseas pilgrimages & adventurous expeditions, more have “advocated” on veterans issues without the requisite knowledge, experience or service.
Many have used their fake military narratives and tales of battlefield injuries to advance their employment opportunities & political aspirations.
Others are involved in intimidation, theft, fraud including accessing veteran/military discounts, questionable charity schemes, embezzlement and dating scams.
It’s our position that Wahya / Cameron is an imposter, he has absolutely no military service andwould likely have difficulty finding Kandahar on a map.
His military themed fairy tales, created for his own personal gain, insult the service and sacrifice of legitimate veterans and it’s long past time for him to get on his knees and apologize for his reprehensible actions.
January – Jack Proulx kicked off the 2021 Parade of Posers with his amazing military themed fairy tales of rescuing POWs, and killing NVA Generals long after US forces had withdrawn from Vietnam. Of course, there are the obligatory stories of him having a price on his head, being wounded in action (shot in the buttocks just like Forrest Gump) and struggling the guilt of being a sole survivor.
Andy Kruzynski – “Dog Tag Dude”. The KRUZER is a bullshit artist and former QOR rifleman with legitimate service in Cyprus. Again, there was no need to embellish his service by wearing bogus medals supposedly earned while on secret intel missions during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. He resurfaced on a number of web sites / groups in Jan/Feb 2021 after making a commitment to members of his regiment to speak only the truth.
April – Hendrik Van der Pol who was featured on our platforms in 2020 finally saw the error of his ways by publicly apologizing for his fakery, destroying the unearned medals/insignia and made a commitment to wear only his legitimate awards.
William Greushcow – The ”Wolf” fooled a lot of good people that he had served with the US Army in Vietnam. To be truly convincing, it takes more than an ill fitting uniform, store bought medals and images lifted from the interwebs. The pic of him purporting to be in Vietnam wearing an Aussie uniform and carrying the FN L1A1 SLR is our fave!
Greushcow has now taken his place in the SVC Hall of Shame and is singing the blues however, it’s not with any uniformed choir in the Ottawa area…
May – former Honorary Colonel Jean – Charles Perreault’s membership in the Order of Military Merit was terminated as a result of his long standing medallic fuckery. Hopefully, his membership in the Order of St John will also be terminated in 2022. The circumstances surrounding his award of the Canadian Forces Decoration and the Service Medal of the Order of St John should be reviewed and the medals revoked if applicable.
Mario Grenier, a former R22eR Sergeant who deployed to the Balkans from Lahr FRG in 1992. There was no need for him to embellish his military service and claim to have been “running down” Scud Missiles in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War and wear bogus medals but, he did…
We were advised that bogus USMC Vietnam POW Kenneth Laroche had resurfaced in the Manitoulin, Ontario area. With the assistance of his enablers Laroche and his military themed fairy tales insult the service and sacrifice of anyone who has worn the the uniform of the United States Marine Corps.
October –“Sir” Brent AdairHabeleter. SVC featured him in our blog a couple of years back, he’s now resurfaced in a video with a new approach – the “Queen’s Representative“ who will address ongoing aboriginal issues with the Royal family.
However, there have been no sightings of his fancy gold rope nor the Canadian Forces Decoration he wore to the legion…
November – self appointed captain/commanding officer Simon “many names” DeRothschild found guilty of 1 count under s419 – Unlawful use of military uniforms or certificates; and 1 count under s130 – Personating a peace officer. He was awarded a $1000 fine for each count (total $2k) and 18 months probation.
December – a set of jump wings were anonymously surrendered to SVC along with an apology for wearing them without entitlement.
So, what’s the current state?
Despite the challenges of operating in global pandemic, a significant staff turnover and the addition of a token sailor to our research staff, SVC will continue our campaign to expose those who stand in the blood of our fallen. Over the course of the past nine years, it’s become apparent that the vast majority of individuals reported to us are nothing more than grifters and con artists who lie, cheat or steal for their own personal gain!
They have used their “special status” to attend military ceremonies and parades, military themed galas and high profile sporting events as VIP guests. Some have participated in fully funded overseas pilgrimages & adventurous expeditions, more have “advocated” on veterans issues without the requisite knowledge, experience or service!
Fakes and embellishers have even acquired trauma support dogs and mobility equipment that should have gone to legitimate veterans. Many have used their fake military narratives and tales of battlefield injuries to advance their employment opportunities & political aspirations. Others are involved in intimidation, theft, fraud including accessing veteran/military discounts, questionable charity schemes, embezzlement and dating scams.
We are well aware of individuals using their fabricated experiences and bogus medals to justify and/or elicit sympathy for their bad behaviour, this is particularly evident with those who claim to have been Prisoners of War.
Remember folks, they are all grifters and con artists…
That being said, SVC has found that Mental Health issues are not usually a factor in the cases reported to us. However, we have piquetted and bypassed a small number of individuals who clearly don’t have the intellectual/mental capacity to understand the nature of their actions. In fact, we have channeled a number of people to mental health agencies as our interactions with them caused us concern.
SVC first became aware of DUPS, who is a Canadian from the Hamilton Ontario area, after we were sent his “graduation / promotion” pics in early February 2021.
Was he the top candidate on his combat medical course conducted at CFB Trenton?
That may explain him being awarded a Royal Canadian Medical Service hat badge in a fancy jewellery box…
Perhaps, the top dude is also awarded a special silk tie?
For considerable VALOR? Canadian Special Operations Airborne Regiment? Lieutenant Wayne Eyre-Jenning? SVC has seen many bogus documents produced by posers, fakes and embellishers however, McSquinty has taken his fakery to a whole new level!Who knew that long dead, US President Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was signing Canadian Army certificates? He’s a graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada? As a Corporal combat paramedic? With a Nursing Degree?
And, there’s more. Seems that the super soldiers of Delta Scorpion B should have been named to the Canadian Olympic Team. Imagine being able to cross 454 km in 3 hours & 45minutesON FOOT!
And, there’s even more!
Dups was unable to attend the ceremony as he was deployed to an undisclosed location… “Carly Sims – Canadian Press 16 December 2017” , of course, Carly Sims doesn’t exist.
And, even more!
Thanks to Michigan Law Enforcement Agencies, DUPS now has the opportunity to reflect upon his Medallic Fuckery™️, prepare an apology for his actions, surrender the bogus items for appropriate disposal action and become a productive member of society…
Mr Jeppe had been on our radar for quite some time after he claimed to have been a highly decorated reconnaissance commando – a member of ”the RECCES”. However, it took the assistance of a former South African Army Paratrooper and a SF Operator to join the dots for us and put SVC in contact with the SASF Association. The association have published a letter refuting his commando claims and posted him up on their website Wall of Shame – March 2020.
http://www.recce.co.za/bogus-individuals(1) The maroon beret / badge worn by recce-commandos of the SA Army, (1) the serialized insignia of a qualified SF Operator and (3) the wings of a qualified free-fall parachutist. Jeppe has no lawful entitlement to any of these items!It’s amazing to the lengths that individuals will go in order to create a military persona. Imagine, (1) creating a bogus email account / website to communicate with with individuals / organizations. The bogus account is hosted by fastdomains in Burlington, Massachusetts. Now, why would a South African Special Forces unit need to use a US based web host?http://1recce.com/index.htm
(2) send an email from the bogus account stating that the individual is a highly decorated SF operator, AND (3) providing a number and code name that only a legitimate operator would know as confirmation of their service… Nice try “Simba”!
Did this fella actually make the trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro or, did he just make it as far as the park entrance for a photo op?
Jeppe’s claim to be a recipient of the Honoris Crux (Silver) / Cross of Honour(Silver), a military decoration which was awarded to members of the South African Defence Force for exceptional bravery in great danger.
Every recipient is known and their names are listed on-line, Jeppe isn’t on the list!
This fake has more nerve than a toothache, pretending to be a South African recce commando. Obviously, he figured that no one in Calgary would question his claims of military service on the other side of the world…
Here’s a news flash Jeppe, there’s an international movement to stop individuals like you from standing in blood of the wounded and fallen.
It’s long past time for you to surrender the bogus uniform, medals and insignia and apologize for you actions.
While serving as a Senior Officer with Regional Cadet Support Unit (Pacific) and during employment at Vernon Army Cadet Camp, he wore the following medals and insignia without lawful authority.
The Order of St John,
The Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal,
The UN Force in Cyprus Medal,
The UN Emergency Force II,
The Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal, and
The Canadian Forces parachute insignia.
Mr Martens was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration for long service and “good conduct” This is his sole lawful medallic entitlement.
He claims he was “verbally” reprimanded for his fakery and allowed to submit a request for his voluntary release from the CAF in July of 2013. He then slipped quietly out the back gate when he should have faced charges under s419 CCC / s129 NDA.
So, the question becomes, why was this matter not dealt with in an open, transparent and public manner?
He certainly wore the medals and insignia in public!
“I am very ashamed and embarrassed for my actions and admit that I put up uniform items to which I was not entitled to put up. I offer no excuse other than I totally knew better and was galactically stupid for doing so. This was a very expensive decision on my part that resulted in being disciplined and having to resign from the military”
Mr S Martens
Vernon Army Cadet Camp nominal roll, now why would there be any mention Egypt (UNEFME) and Cyprus (UNFICYP)? He never served there!
No mention of Basic Parachutist training, Airborne Indoctrination Course, service with the Canadian Airborne Regiment or operational deployments to Egypt and Cyprus…
Martens wearing the undress ribbons of the OStJ, the CPSM, UNFICYP, UNEF II, the CD and the FSESM. His sole lawful entitlement is the Canadian Forces Decoration (CD), the operational parachutist wings are also bogus!
