3:09 am
loss-at home-as i've seen in awhile. the colts came in desperate for a win. they played with more intensity and energy...embarrassing a green bay bunch that had a chance to tie the vikings for the division lead! the pack's special teams forgot to show up in time for the game. mike mccarthy's decision to def backfired when jordan todman returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. the colts went ahead 14-3 aaron rodgers tossed the ball up and said.."jordy, make a play". nelson sure did! 26 yards. 14-10! but, the packers "d" -other than ha ha clinton dix-who made 2 interceptions- didn't do the job. giving up a 96 yard touchdown drive. andrew luck to dante moncrief.. 24- 10 colts at half. it was 31-13
3:10 am
host decided to play with urgency. rodgers 3 yards to davante adams; 31- 19; the try for 2 failed. aaron it out for randall cobb who was back in there.. 31-26. however, he defense couldn't get off the field and that was the final. the packers fall to 4 and 4 with their 2nd straight loss. tim van vooren tackles the blitz. "on the strength of beating the bears then coming close against the falcons, the packers were feeling very good about themselves arriving for sunday's game against the colts. looking right past indy, at least it looked that way." "no, we can't overlook anybody. everybody will give the packers their 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 one. and putt together as a team 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
3:11 am
surprised or whatever. we just need to win games." "myself included, we gotta find a way to get guys dialed in. for whatever reason, i know we're playing young players but i've said it the last couple weeks. no excuses. we're paid to play and perform.: "so now only halfway through the regular season but with a long way to go before finishing it all where nobody is pulling away at lambeu field, tim van vooren, fox six sports." tim and brandon join me for the sports blitz from green bay. i promise you that we''ll be more fired up than the packers were against the colts. there are lies some guys tells that don't really matter--who cares if they
3:12 am
but there are lies that matter very, very much. this man lied about something sacred: he says he served our country in war. the fox 6 investigators discovered he did no such thing. the dishonor of stolen valor coming up..... here's the good news: this is the last sunday for awhile that your football will get interrupted by political calls. here's the bad news: you're getting two more days of it--the final push for your vote. and those seeking refuge from politics in church didn't find it either--the head of the n-a-a-p milwaukee parishes today. his message for voters....

nearly 4-million american veterans suffer from a disability connected to their service in the
3:16 am
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 marine. the man in the background with the towel on his shoulder is john e "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 forearm is tattooed with the words "marine corps." his cars have veterans plates.
3:17 am
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 into the tale. "he was in the iraq war and he was helping a little kid and so happeningly they walked across a bomb and thats what happened to hi 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 the fake warrior project. a team of volunteers that have exposed military imposters across the
3:18 am
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 vietnam.'it was an ambush in vietnam that wounded her husband. "i was married to a ma phony marine. because i know what he went through. i know how he suffered." "it is reprehensible."david kurtz is state adjutant for the
3:19 am
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.' wege was 19 when he lost his legs in afghanistan. seven years later, he plays for the wounded warriors softball team. 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 is not a disabled marine... 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
3:20 am
worth of jewelry in 2012. "he's a disgrace." "lieutenant john, how are you?" "who?" "lt. john." "no." "yeah, you're john hemphill, right?" "i'm john hemphill. why?"watch what happened when i found hemphill in 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. "for military to get a discount on a cell phone, you have to have a military id!"turns out, hemphill got a military id when he joined the
3:21 am
"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 veteran. i said, 'so, you didn't ask?' they said, 'well sometimes, it's personal.'" 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 worse in my book than a phony marine or a phony pow. they
3:22 am
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. any idea if he's getting military benefits, like disability or medical 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 charge

the stakes are high in this year's election. and republicans are working the ground-game in the final two days. our jonathon gregg spent the afternoon with volunteers as the worked the phones on behalf of donald trump and ron johnson. you could say the presidential race "if you were to vote right now." is "too close to call--" "is because none of the votes have actually been counted... "well thank you so much as i said i am a volunteer with the republican party." but two days until they are-- "hi, is this linda?" "calling" is exactly what campaign volunteers are doing. "in fact i talked to somebody who was tailgating. he answered
3:32 am
you, bye bye." "don't forget to vote november 8th if you haven't already." north shore republicans "good, and how about the president?" like any party volunteers, probably never bank on a win unless they know the ground game is good. "i'm glad it's an easy choice." and patty reiman, the long time campaign volunteer says their gop ground game is good. "we are going to make sure we get our voters out to vote. we have a great ground game here in wisconsin."

"i'm calling about the election, i have two quick questions for you!" in bayside jonathon gregg fox6 news. e north shore republicans have dtens of thousands of calls the past few months and on saturday alone knocked on more an two-thousand doors --campaigy clinton and tim kaine supporters gathered at the democratic party headquarters of milwaukee. they bought buttons and signs with their candidates names on them. each one here to canvas the neighborhoods looking to gather votes on tuesday. "out voter turnout in the us is really really low and that's
3:33 am
to get out and vote and our canvasing and phone calling does help." before they knocked on doors the volunteers were energized by the democratic vice president nominee tim kaine who spoke briefly to a crowd of about 50. after the rally the volunteers got their assignments for the day. for everything you need to know before you head to the polls -- including the latest from the campaigns -- head to our website, fox six now dot com, or your fox six news mobile app and click on "links." the college basketball season is about to tip-off and one marquette though he's a long way from home. tim van vooren goes beyond the game. in recent seasons, trent lockett and matt carlino have played big roles at marquette as graduate transfers.... the experience they brought to the program was evident... now, former unlv and usc guard katin reinhardt gets his chance... 144353 "i think the biggest thing coming in here was, i am only here for a year." 144357 144412 "so coming in
