Case Notes:

 

Matthew James Koryn enlisted in the Australian Regular Army in 2009. After basic training he was allocated to Royal Australian Infantry Corps, but for medical reasons did not complete his Corps training and transferred to Australian Army Catering Corps in 2010. He was discharged from the Army in 2014 for medical reasons.



Koryn will tell of his service, as being a Sergeant in Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) with considerable overseas service. He also claims to have served with United States (US) Special Forces and various mercenary groups.

The truth is, he has never departed Australia either before, during or since his service.

To prove his service he has purchased six medals and an Infantry Combat Badge. Sadly he chooses to have close family members wear these on his behalf on Commemorative occasions.

Here is a photograph of his fake medals



They are:

Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) Not entitled

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) Not entitled
Afghanistan Medal Not entitled
Iraq Medal Not entitled
Australian Service Medal Not entitled
Australian Defence Medal
North Atlantic Treaty Organization Medal (ISAF) Not entitled

Koryn is an inspirational liar who spun yarns whilst in hospital to vulnerable people. Here is what a person said about him on social media:



Wherever possible he will tell of his false military exploits that have led him to being an invalid. His actual service was that of a private soldier Cook who was never deployed to any operational areas.

He was successful in conning the Victoria Returned and Services League (RSL), by securing a grant under personal hardship to pay off debts including what he owed on a car. As soon as the payment was made by the RSL, he purchased an expensive high performance Ford FPV GTP XR8. The payments for the new car were higher than the payments "he couldn't make" on the old car which was paid off by the RSL.

RSL and other veterans, and veteran support organizations should be aware that Koryn is quick to speak of his false and heroic Special Forces service and is always on the prowl for a hand out.

Koryn was given the privilege of serving in the Australian Army, but his service was nothing like he tells people. He was never in SASR and he achieved the rank and status of a Private Soldier in the Catering corps, which for many, is the starting point of a solid career path.

Koryn service in the Catering Corps was the epitome of mundane, but he needs to tell of a much more adventurous time.

He is not what he says he is. He is what we say he is, and for his dishonesty is granted a space on this website.
