New York man accused of fabricating decorated Green Beret military career | Fox News

A New York man fabricated his decorated military career, with claims of being a Green Beret, receiving medals for courage under fire and serving for 25 years all being exposed as lies, according to military documents.

Papotia Reginald Wright, of Brooklyn, claimed he served with Special Forces, but military documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, showed the veteran was not a Green Beret and did not go beyond a “specialist rank,” the New York Post reported.

Wright also boasted of serving in the Army for 25 years and said he received the Purple Heart and Bronze Star — but records showed he only served from 1982-1990 and spent most of his time as a driver in Alaska, Texas, Georgia and Egypt.
