Fake Military Uniforms

Full Disclosure – Yes, I know the header image is just a little kid wearing Halloween costumes, and this post isn’t about those fake uniforms and kids pretending to be in the military. Trust me, you will want to read this one.

I’m sure that there are some cheese-dicks out there that have purchased these shitty knock-off USMC uniforms or something they got from the Goodwill or Salvation Army.

Fake Marine Corps Blues

I’m sure those piss-ants are wearing these uniforms around town trying to get attention. It seems these fuck-heads can’t get any attention when they are not wearing a look-alike uniform of someone else, so they put this shit on and it makes them feel good about themselves and they try to convince others that they are real. They are basically broadcasting, look at me, I’m someone important. Well, my friend a real Marine doesn’t need to walk around like that, because he/she is already important and they know it. However, there is another type of Stolen Valor that I want to write about today.

Let me introduce you to “SSgt” Sarah Cavanaugh, “USMC“. This piece of shit takes stolen valor to the next level. In fact, she is the reigning queen of stolen valor, as if that is a goal to achieve.

POS Sarah Cavanaugh
She looks like any other female Marine. But she has a very dark secret (well it isn’t a secret no longer). Below is a video that will fill you in on what this piece of shit did.
Watch the video that “Angry Cops” (Richard Hy) – hint start it at 2:25
This video was published in February 2022.
I think the thing that pisses me off the most is that as a licensed social worker (at the Department of Veteran Affairs at the Rhode Island Veterans Affairs Medical Center) she saw, interacted with, and likely provided advice to veterans. Veterans that needed real, honest, and sincere help. I’m fuming at the fact, that this fucking piece of dog excrement gave advice to a veteran who needed real support from someone that they can trust, someone that they relate to. Imagine if you were one of these veterans who was already doubting their purpose in life outside of the military, only to talk to this turd. She had unrestricted access to veterans’ service and medical records.
She decided to go all out on her lie, she even stated that her twin brother also served and was killed in Iraq.

So, let’s break all this down Barney style and see if we can figure out what this bitch did.

  • She was able to con her way into a paid job as Post Commander for VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) Post 152 in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
  • She conned $225,895.00 from the Wounded Warrior Project – to pay for groceries and physical therapy
  • $10,072 from the Code of Support – for mortgage payments, repairs to her home furnace, gym membership, and other bills
  • $14,972 in tuition and travel assistance from the CreatiVets
  • $4,395.60 from the VFW Post 152 Giving Tree charity
  • $4,766 from GoFundMe – “Help Sarah Win Her Battle”
  • $2,500 from the Air Warrior Courage Foundation
  • $3,600 from VetLinks
  • $900 from Easter Seals
  • $5,346 from J.H. (Private Citizen)
  • $2,500 from M.A. (Private Citizen)
  • $1,912.39 from Patrol Base Abbate
  • 460 hours of Emergency Paid Leave valued at approximately $20,957.60
  • 261 hours of federal leave time donated by other federal employees worth $11,891.16
Since the Angry Cops, (Thank you Richard) video, the following has happened in this case.
  • She admitted that she lied about being a wounded Marine Corps veteran
  • She admitted that she lied about having cancer
  • She admitted to fraudulently obtaining $250,000 in cash and benefits
  • She pled guilty
  • She signed an agreement in U.S. District Court in Providence under which she will admit to wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, forgery, and fraudulent use of medals
  • She has also agreed to pay $82,489.73 from a recent real estate sale, which will be applied to restitution obligations
  • She faces more than 20 years in prison, but prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence on the low end of sentencing guidelines, according to court documents.
  • She faces a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison when she’s sentenced in November.

Here are all the charges she faces:

Count 1: (18 U.S.C. § 1343 – Fraud by Wire, Radio, or Television)
a. 20 years imprisonment;
b. $250,000 fine;
c. 3 years supervised release; and
d. $100 special assessment

Count 2: (18 U.S.C. § 1028A – Aggravated Identity Theft)
a. 2 years imprisonment consecutive to the underlying offense (Count 1,
Wire Fraud); and
b. $100 special assessment

Count 3: (18 U.S.C. § 498 – Used or exhibited a military discharge certificate,
knowing the same to be forged, counterfeited, or falsely altered)
a. Not more than 1-year imprisonment;
b. Not greater than a $100,000 fine
c. Up to 1 year supervised release; and
d. $25 special assessment

Count 4: (18 U.S.C. § 704(b) & (d)(1) – Fraudulent Use of Military Medals)
a. Not more than 1-year imprisonment;
b. Not greater than a $100,000 fine;
c. Up to 1 year supervised release; and
d. $25 special assessment

Here is a copy of the fake DD-214 she forged, and a copy of the court documents

In an ironic twist, Cavanaugh’s final sentence will be determined by a federal district judge after a consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. Cavanaugh is scheduled to be sentenced on November 10, 2022 (the Marine Corps birthday). The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ronald R. Gendron.

The matter was investigated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General; U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Police Service; and the FBI, with the assistance of the U.S. Defense Criminal Investigative Service; U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service; U.S. Postal Inspection Service; and Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations.
