Johnny 12 Steps Swears He Has Paperwork Showing He’s Not Lying About Being A Veteran To Raise Money For Dialysis After Cousin Accuses Him Of Stealing Uniform And Turkey 


Last night I published a blog about a Plymouth couple that started a shady GoFundMe because the dude allegedly needed $1500 for dialysis a couple weeks after getting married, or else he would die!

I thought it was suspicious because they claimed that he was a veteran, which would mean that his copay would be covered by the VA if he couldn’t afford it. He also had a long history of junkie behavior to go along with the couple’s overall junkie demeanor. Then today my suspicions were confirmed when I found this post from a relative.

Well, would you look at that? He steals entire turkeys from relatives on Thanksgiving, and then takes their army uniforms to pose for pictures on Facebook and pretend that he served his country.

This guy, a junkie?

Never saw that one coming!

Others attempted to warn people who donated that they were being scammed, but the donors didn’t seem to care because clearly they’ve never dealt with a junkie before.

“Maybe he’s trying really hard to get sober.”


Right. That would explain why he’d lie about being a veteran in order to raise money for something that would be covered if he was. Let’s give him $1,500 and hope that this is the time he decides to turn his life around.

In the name of fairness and balance I did message Johnny 12 Steps on Facebook to see what he had to say.



So he has his DD214’s, he’s just not gonna show me. Sounds legit.

    Dialysis patients automatically qualify for Medicare. USA basically has universal healthcare for Dialysis patients. Signed into law by Richard Nixon I believe. And you don’t pay a deductible to wait for a kidney. And if the procedure is $75K I do not think a hospital would not give you a kidney if your name came up on the list bc you cannot get $1500 together. They will just sell that off to a collections agent for pennies on the dollar.
    And he prob googled kidney disease because anyone in the kidney business calls stage 5 end stage kidney disease not stage 5.

    Listen, I’m sure this guy is full of shit and not a vet, but if some random asshole or even someone I knew demanded to see my DD-214, my reply would be “go fuck yourself.” Don’t use it as proof this guy is full of shit. There are easier ways to find out.

    Ok, been out for a few years but did 22 between two services and I have multiple DD-214’s and even an NGB-22. Did some time in Iraq during and after the shock n awe shitshow in ’03. Thank me for my cervix, lol.
    I’m not sure that someone rates a 214 if they’re a non-hacker ELS (entry level separation). I think you have to be further along to get that separation document.
    I despise these stolen valor shitbirds. Wouldn’t shed a tear if someone broke him in half or worse.

    I read elsewhere in here about a guy doing stateside duty (APG) not thinking he deserves the description of vet.
    You were an active duty servicemember, a veteran. You could have been called up to deploy just as easily as staying stateside. That’s the contract we all signed. Don’t sweat it, the title is proper.

    What’s the big deal? As far as I’m concerned if you FEEL like you served, then people should respect that- kinda like when a guy FEELS like he’s a woman. I, for one, will stand up for my brother who pretended to serve so proudly.

    Did this fuck wad call himself an operator or am I in the middle of my Jameson blackout with a side of Angel’s envy? I was a 63 hotel back in my day outta APG spent my whole time fixing broken M-1’s stateside. They gave me vet status for it and I honestly don’t think I deserved it. Refuse to even get veterans plates…lol

    Remind me again how many years you served….? Or did you have bone spurs too?

    The Villa Villa Cafe and Bar in Hong Kong published a photo of a custom cake it baked for a customer this week depicting American presidential candidate Joe Biden sniffing the hair of a distressed cartoon girl drawn in the Japanese anime style.

    The Asian outlet Coconuts, which highlighted the bizarre cake order, described the image of Biden as one of “a handsy pedophile.” Coconuts translated the Chinese text on the cake as reading, “Warmly celebrate Uncle Biden for his election as the 46th US president.”

    Can you say, “Entry Level Separation for the convenience of the government? I thought you could!”

    And because Junkie Joshua didn’t do >181 days on active duty, even the VA is gonna tell him to fuck off. Even a total dipshit boot can salute better than that jackhole.

    If you go through MEPS and than pussy out your 1st week in BCT you get a DD214. Having a DD214 DOES NOT give you a veteran status you grimey poon fuck. Where as my DD214 has a 1 next to the RE (re-entry) code and lists the conditions as honorable yours more than likely has a 4 which means even if it’s the end of the god damn world they’ll never take you back and I’m sure you have either an OTH (other than honorable) or a dishonorable. Although when I went in (04-08) it was very difficult to get a DH. We had guys AWOL out during OSUT and they got an OTH. Showing up at POG BCT at Ft. Jackson for a week doesn’t make you a fucking veteran, it makes you a sad excuse for a dumped load.

    A valid contract is based upon the rules of “informed consent”. But when you make a deal with the devil, you know what the deal is, and you know you are going to get screwed. Some men “go for it” anyway, they think the reward is worth the price. You can’t say, “I didn’t know about the risk to my kidneys from shooting up…..”

    So, for you junkies, let me show you some headlines, and you can figure out if your death by kidney failure is worth the high you get: “The Changing Spectrum of Heroin-Associated Kidney Disease”, “Washington Researcher Finds Links between Heroin Use and Incurable Kidney Disease”, “Intravenous drug users who require dialysis: causes of renal failure and outcomes”.

    The devil always wins in the deals that are made with him.

      However, the one flaw with your logic concerning contracts: it assumes the participant is able to read.
