"no, we can't overlook anybody. everybody will give the packers their best shot. everybody gonna come out and play good against us. no matter what they did weeks before. we gotta look for everybody's best game coming forward and we gotta be at our best." "i mean i know in the first half we just--we didn't bring enough juice. we just got out played. and that's unacceptable. we gotta look inside on that and figure out a way to step it up, especially in the first half of these home games. we can't do that." "we just have to win games, like i said. 'i'm not going to say i'm surprised or not surprised or whatever. we just need to win games."

nearly 4-million disability connected to their service in the military. 46-year-old john hemphill is not one of them. but fox 6 investigator bryan polcyn finds the west allis man has been posing as a disabled u-s marine for years. he's known to many as lieutenant john hemphill. at least, that's what it says on his bank statement, his electric bill, and his cell phone bill. his facebook page says he's a sergeant. in reality, he's not even a
9:16 pm
the towel on his shoulder is john hemphill. "you a marine?" "yes, sir."he's a 22-year veteran of the united states marine corps... who lost his leg in afghanistan. "then he said all of a sudden there was a bomb."at least, that's what he told sheila when they met a few years ago. "his leg, you know, blew off."his prosthetic leg has a marine t-shirt laminated onto it. his left words "marine corps." his cars have veterans plates. his mail is often addressed to lieutenant john hemphill. and around his neck, you'll almost always find a pair of dog tags. "it really seemed convincing. yes it did."so convincing that when sheila and john hemphill married in 2013... she got his dog tags tattooed on her right arm. "it says mrs. lieutenant jonathan hemphill." "he sold us a sad story."sheila's daughter bought

was helping a little kid and so happeningly they walked across a bomb and thats what happened to his leg."they say they believed hemphill was a genuine wounded warrior... until a member of his own family came forward. "she was like, 'i gotta tell you something.' she started crying. she's like, 'john was never, ever in the military.'" "i mean, it's fraud."the hemphills are now getting divorced. "the whole marriage was based on a fraud to me." "we see that over and over and over."mary schantag is one of the founders of t project. a team of volunteers that have exposed military imposters across the country, claiming awards and commendations from purple hearts to the medal of honor. "it's an epidemic. it's an absolute epidemic!'after we told her about hemphill, schantag requested detailed records of his military service... but the marine corps' manpower division could not find him anywhere in their records. 'i dont know how he lost his leg, but i can guarantee it wasnt in the bombing in afghanistan and it certainly wasnt in an ambush in

that wounded her husband. "i was married to a marine. it ticks me off when there's a phony marine. because i know what he went through. i know how he suffered." "it is reprehensible."david wisconsin american legion. "not only does it demean veterans and demean those who have served the country honorably, but it is an insult to those members of the general public that want to genuinely support veterans." "it's disgusting, honestly."it's especially offensive to campbellsport, wisconsin, native josh wege. a real u-s marine who lived what john hemphill only pretends to. 'we hit a 200 pound bomb, ripped both my legs off.'

legs in afghanistan. seven years later, he plays for the wounded warriors softball team. "there's a lot of guys paying a heavy price, a lot of families that are still suffering because of that, and for someone to come out there and pretend to, impersonate somebody who has fallen, it's disgusting to me." "people have died for this country, they have served. he hasn't done anything."hemphill but he is a convicted felon who robbed a pizza delivery man in 1990... put his fists through the front window of a car during an argument in 1994... and stole 8-thousand dollars worth of jewelry in 2012. "he's a disgrace." "lieutenant john, how are you?" "who?" "lt. john." "no." "yeah, you're john hemphill,
9:20 pm
what happened when i found hemphill in the car outside his west allis home. "lt. john. it's right there on your dog tags." "no it's not. no it's not."he pauses, then covers up the dog tags before my next question. "why would you be telling people that youre a disabled, retired marine who lost his leg in afghanistan?"maybe he does it for the accolades. "people come up, shake his hand, 'thank you for your services.'"or maybe it's a way to meet women. "every lady that we've talked to since their separation, he told them the same story, 'oh, i served 22 years' and 'you wanna wear my dog tags?'" or maybe it's for personal gain... like the 15-percent discount on his us cellular bill. on a cell phone, you have to have a military id!"turns out, hemphill got a military id when he joined the american legion. "did he have, like, a legion card?" "yes, yes. it's like a little card, his name on there, lt. john hemphill." "they can sign a document they know is not true. there is no stopping that." "they said all they saw was his leg. so they assumed he was a
9:21 pm
'well sometimes, it's personal.'" "that speaks to the need to enforce the law. you know, it is a crime."last year, the state of wisconsin passed a new law that makes it a class a misdemeanor to falsely claim military service for any kind of tangible benefit. "i believe he deserves jail." "people have served their country. i think john should serve some time." mary schantag says it's time for either state or federal authorities to make an example out of those living with stolen valor. "there's nothing book than a phony marine or a phony pow. they can all go to hell!" david kurtz of the wisconsin american legion says when a new member joins, the local post is supposed to verify the member's military service by requesting a document known as a dd-214. in john hemphill's case, that didn't happen. since we made the legion aware of his case, jfk post 479 has sent hemphill a certified letter requesting his dd- 214. the legion says he has yet to respond.
9:22 pm
disability or medical services at the v-a? there's no evidence he's getting any military benefits... and the milwaukee v-a says they have no record of him getting treatment. but under the new stolen valor law in wisconsin, it's a crime to fake your military service for any kind of tangible benefit, even a mere discount on a cell phone bill. now, whether or not a district attorney would prosecute over that remains to be seen. the law was just enacted last year, and those who pushed for it tell me it has yet to be used to chare another gruesome discovery - authorities find another body buried at the property where a woman was found chained in a metal
