This is the story that Kee tells;
This horrifying incident still haunts the intrepid ex Captain and he suffers from "Flashbacks" on a regular basis.
In the past two years he has been treated for Prostate cancer, which he attributes to constant exposure to Agent Orange and other defoliants he encountered during his tour of duty in "The Nam". No stranger to fire fights and ambushes this courageous ex officer has impressed his peers and seniors within the motorcar sales industry with his wartime experiences.
All claims are false.
These are the facts:
Central Army Records Office indicates Kee enlisted in the CMF (Citizen Military Forces, now the Army Reserve) in May 1964 and was discharged in Oct 1972 - for this entire period he was a member of 106 Construction Squadron RAE (Royal Australian Engineers).
There is no record of recruit training and parade attendance (one night per week) and one two-week exercise/camp per year, was extremely limited. This part time soldier actually "slipped through the cracks" and avoided National Service (the Draft) by hiding behind the facade of being a part time soldier.
Of great interest is his period of service; he remained hidden in the CMF for the exact duration of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War (1965 to 1972). The only rank he held was Sapper (Private).
This impostor regaled his sales staff and superiors with tales of heroism and danger for far too long. He has used bogus "veteran" status to his advantage and has convinced many high profile personnel in the motor industry that because of his military background as an officer he is trustworthy and honourable.
There was no Australian serviceman captured by the enemy for the entire duration of Australia's involvement in Vietnam, obviously no executions of our personnel took place.
Another ex-car sales manager allied with this impostor is currently under investigation for the same bogus endeavours.
