Florida- Marines attending a funeral in Florida came across this guy, Cornelius Davis, who claimed he was a SGM, with a Silver Star, Bronze Star W/Valor, Purple Heart and several other awards. As you can see in the video below, he is also wearing ribbons and medals on the same uniform, which we know isn’t authorized. He also has all of his ribbons out-of-order, with the Purple Heart at the bottom of his stack.
When the Marines asked him about the uniform regulation, AR 670-1, he said it was about PT and since he was an Officer, he didn’t have to do PT. He is also wearing SGM rank on his beret, which is not allowed by enlisted, only Commissioned Officers wear rank on the beret. The below videos were pulled from youtube for reasons we can’t discuss. But we got them from an anonymous source, we also have some info on who this guy is. But be aware that some people are posting names out on the internet thinking they know who he is, but the name they are using is an elderly woman. Once we get information on who he is, we will look to see if he has any records at all.
Here is Part 2 of the video:
As you can see he is obviously not a SGM, and didn’t earn the Valor awards, Cornelius is a convicted felon who never served.
WPTV Spoke to this man who identifies himself as 44 year old Cornelius Davis.
“WPTV spoke with the man in the video, who refused to go on camera and said he was angry at the social media postings. He identified himself as 44-year-old Cornelius Davis, showing dog tags and scars.
A spokesperson for the United States Army says the items on the uniform do not make sense and are not correct.
The Army says it has no record of a Cornelius Davis with the date of birth he provided having served in the Army since 1999.”
Cornelius was arrested for Violation of Probation on February 6th, 2015.
