A man is accused of pretending to be a decorated Marine officer and is now facing federal charges.
Reggie Buddle, from Tacoma Washington, now is facing a federal charge of unlawful wearing of military medals. He will be in court Thursday. He is accused of unlawfully wearing the defense distinguished service medal, combat action ribbon, presidential unit citation, Vietnam service medal and USMC gold jump wings.
He was posing as a decorated Marine officer and told people he worked at the recruiting office. He is a self avowed chaplain.
He was introduced to Major Poole as a former marine. Poole said "I kind of took that and said, 'Well OK nice to meet you,' but unfortunately that is not the whole story."
This is disturbing to the Marines that actually serve their country and earned their medals.
His daughter said it is all a misunderstanding and that he was allowed to wear the uniform by some Marines at the recruiting office. She said he is a chaplain.
