NJ Veterans Official Falsified Own Record

Sphere: Related Content

A guy who served as a pay clerk in Vietnam gamed the system:

An official of the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs fabricated his colorful past as a decorated Vietnam War veteran and used faked war wounds to collect disability benefits, authorities have said.

William Devereaux, 63, also falsified his tax records so he could get exemptions and benefits, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

Devereaux, of Laurel Springs, was arrested Monday on charges of falsifying or tampering with records and theft by failure to make required disposition. He owes more than $40,000 in taxes to Laurel Springs for 2002 through this year, authorities said.
This scumbag used fake injuries to get benefits meant for vets who actually did and fight and really were injured. I suspect we'll see more of this in the near future with the large group of war vets we now have from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Devereaux not only collected benefits but had a job in which he embellished his record to get. That is a slap in the face to those who fought and were injured or died. They fought for our freedom and this dirtbag pissed all over them by claiming what he was not. Let's hope he gets what he deserves.
