Busted: Occupy Buffalo leader caught in lies about his military service

Busted: Occupy Buffalo leader caught in lies about his military service

From The Blaze

Christopher M. Simmance, a leader of Occupy Buffalo, told several media outlets that he served as many as three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not only that, but he also claims to have been so severely injured by an RPG while in combat in Afghanistan, that he only has 10 years left to live. Army service records, however, show a very different story, reporting that Simmance was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington for three years and left active-duty in January 2001 — before the September 11 attacks.

But it gets worse.

Simmance claims he was deployed to Afghanistan in 2001 where he served in the “Valley of Elah.”

If that name sounds familiar, it is because “The Valley of Elah” refers to the site where the Biblical battle between David and Goliath took place —  it is also the name of a 2007 movie starring Denzel Washington.

There is no “Valley of Elah” in Afghanistan.

Army records reveal that Simmance left active-duty service with the rank of E4, or specialist, not staff sergeant, and was stationed at Fort Lewis for the duration of his active-duty service.

    This story has already been discredited as a smear, you stupid Adolfs

    Provide the credible link(s) to prove it was a smear. Until you do, he’s just another liberal hack who lied about his military service.

    Does he have a DD214? It would site his rank, service dates and medals/decorations.

      As someone that has deployed more than once, his claim that he has a “military passport” is total BS. You dont go through customs when you deploy. The only way he got those stamps was going as a civilian.

      How about that as some facts.

      Additionally, just because the story is on Military.com does not make it factual. If you look at the credit line, it is a story from the Buffalo News.

    Well speaking from experience, you review and in a way help create your own dd214. If there are problems with it, those problems are no ones else fault but your own. This person obviously didn’t care at the time of separation or his paperwork would have been correct before separating.

    Anyone can submit a claim, I’ll wait to see if it ever gets processed.

    Thanks for exposing the liars.
