J. Thomas Burch Jr. Esq. - Phoney SF

This thread is not about J. Thomas Burch Jr., Esq., the President of National Vietnam Veterans Foundation.. I noticed this morning that Mr. Burch has written this letter to his supporters.. Letter To Friends and Supporters of NVVF..

This thread is about J. Thomas Burch Jr. Esq., and his claims to be a "Green Beret" during his tour of duty in Vietnam..

Granted Mr. Burch was "attached" to the 5th SFG as a JAG Officer.. As you will see in his records obtained from NPRC using the FOIA.. I see no SF tab, no Airborne tab, or anything else for him to make the claim of "Green Beret", or "Special Forces" soldier.. I believe he has been using his attachment to 5th. SFG to embellish his Military record..


SOURCE: Military Records - NPRC..
SOURCE: For Green Beret 1 - LA Times
SOURCE: For Green Beret 2 - Arlington Cemetery
SOURCE: For Green Beret 3 - AP News - Archives
SOURCE: For Special Forces 1 - Washington Times

Mr. Burch makes the claim of being a member of the Special Forces Association.. Upon contacting the Association, Mr. Burch is eligible for an "Associate" membership..


Several people have brought it to my attention that Mr. Burch is Airborne Qualified.. After scouring through his records, and anywhere else I might find proof, I find nothing.. He does have a "Vietnamese Honorary Parachutist Certificate", awarded by Major General Doan Van Quang of the South Vietnamese Army.. Hardly Airborne.. ... ..

J. Thomas Burch Charged


Pulled in nearly $30 million in 4 years.. Charged with embezzling nearly $150,000.00.. Horse-Shit.. He's a greedy bastard, and that number came from where..? I only assume that dollar figure of his embezzling is a lot higher.. I've known Burch and his tactics for close to 20 years.. This time the criminal got caught.. ... ..Clay

What about being disbarred? He is unfit for the practice of law.

Thank you Sir.. It just amazes me the lengths some POS's will go to to keep from having a decent record.. Brer Burch has a record that just about anyone would be proud of..

I went back over his NPRC records.. He had several accomplishments.. One of the biggest accomplishments, to me, was surviving Vietnam.. He received two medals just for that..

Reading the certificates to some of his awards, that fucker made a difference.. But, like Magician says, "Just wasn't sexy enough for him.."

Now the greedy bastard could very well have the opportunity to be bunk mates with Bubba.. In reality, if he goes to trial after his investigation is over, and is convicted, he'll more than likely go to some low-level, minimal security facility, for a minimal amount of time.. Gated Resort Community..

I don't even shake my head anymore.. Oh well, shit happens.. ... ..Clay

The former head of D.C. charity meant to benefit Vietnam veterans pleaded guilty to wire fraud after embezzling about $150,000, federal prosecutors said.
John Thomas Burch, 75, of Alexandria was the president of the National Vietnam Veterans Foundation until last year, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia said in a statement. He misappropriated about $150,000 of donations marked for veteransí family members with small children in poverty, the statement said, giving the money to women he was involved with and claiming reimbursements for visits to clubs, meals and hotel stays that were not related to the charity.

Lawyer who abused Vietnam veteranís charity is disbarred

A Virginia lawyer who ran a Na≠tional Vietnam veterans charity from his home in Alexandria has agreed to give up his law license after admitting that donorsí money went largely to fundraisers and to the lawner's own pocket.
