Case Notes:


John Michael Winter did not complete the criteria to wear the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) and it was not issued to him.




He wears five medals, he earned four.  The last medal on his rack, is the RVCM and requires a person to have served for 181 days in Vietnam.  Winter served 178 days and despite not having earned the medal, and the strict criteria, self purchased it and has worn it for many years.




There are  cases where Department of Defence  have wrongly advised Veterans they are entitled to wear the medal by endorsing details on their Certificates of Service. Winter is not one of them.  We are prepared to give leeway to Veterans who have been wrongly issued the medal, providing they contact Defence and return the medal.

Winter is the President of the Springwood Qld RSL, and as senior executive  the measure of his  deceit is unacceptable

RVCM cheats are being uncovered by their desire to be photographed by media. If you wear fake medals do not seek RSL executive positions or seek media exposure.

We welcome John Michael Winter to our website.
