Jack Keinzley - Masterton New Zealand
Nahhhhh this fake and impostor is a nephew of the famous Jack Keinzley - one of those imbeciles who like to pretend that he, similar to his famous uncle was a real veteran who had been involved in many conflicts. This clowns only service was as a "Seaman boy" for eight months before he was discharged in 1961 for failing Navy physical standards.
Jack Keinzley – the fake – resides in Masterton in the South East of the North Island. He has also spread lies around his hometown. When he worked as a cleaner at the Masterton hospital he told work mates about his service as a Navy diver who served in Vietnam another time when he was a patient at the same hospital he spread the word that he was having some shrapnel removed. This is his photo below
The real Jack Keinzley was a renowned New Zealand soldier who served as the Regimental Sergeant Major of Royal New Zealand Artillery Unit, 161 Battery in Vietnam in 1968. Here is a photo of the real Jack Keinzley, taken at Nui Dat in 1968.
This insipid nephew of the real Jack Keinzley has been caught out either stealing the identity of his famous uncle or trying to emulate his service.
It seems that on last ANZAC day when the fake Keinzley was photographed the photographers were so taken by his chest full of medals that they forgot to catch his countenance and we ask that if anyone can help by supplying a recent photo of this dill we will display him prominently at the start of the story.
ANZMI, like many genuine New Zealand veterans are waiting with interest to see if any charges are laid against Keinzley.
We know that our neighbours across the Tasman don't like being told what to do, but I'm sure that all New Zealand veterans will agree when we ask them that next time this dill shows his face at a veterans function to remove him from the scene - with pomp and ceremony, and at the same time drink a toast to the real Jack Keinzley a renowned soldier who does not deserve being emulated by a stupid nephew.
Below are follow up newspaper clippings resulting from the fake Keinzley's appearance on ANZAC Day 2007.
