Was constable candidate lying about his military experience too?

After SanTanValley.com broke the story that Republican candidate for Constable, John R Acton, had been fabricating a law enforcement career spanning 26 years, we started wondering what else Acton was lying about.

Over the past eight years, in addition to the fabricated law enforcement career, Acton spoke often about being a Vietnam Vet or a U.S. Army Veteran in the Vietnam Era. He claimed to have participated in “advance infantry warfare”, had “secret clearance MI. level 4” and was a decorated officer. Sometimes he said that he was honorably discharged due to an injury, other times he said he was retired military.

Acton has been asked several times to produce either his DD214 (which is a standard document confirming military dates of service, assignments and if the individuals service was honorable), his military ID, or anything to support his claims that he was indeed a military veteran. Acton has refused to show SanTanValley.com any proof of his military experience. Recently however, Acton posted an American Legion membership certificate on his website and labeled it “Certificate of Military Service”.
