    BUFFALO, NY-- A West Seneca man is facing charges for allegedly impersonating a United States Marine and a Department of Defense police officer.

    New York State Police say Michael R. Schrenk, 47, attended public functions in Eden and West Seneca in a Department of Defense Police officer uniform.

    Schrenk is also charged with unlawfully Wearing a Military Uniform (US Marine Corps) and Unlawfully Wearing a Military Rank (US Marine Corps - Staff Sergeant) in the Town of Hamburg. Troopers say Schrenk was wearing the Marine uniform while at the Erie County Fair this past summer.

    According to Troopers, Schrenk has never served in the United States Marine Corps, nor was he a sworn member of the DOD Police Department.

    Schrenk was arraigned in court and is scheduled to appear October 17 in West Seneca and October 30 in Hamburg.

    A search warrant was executed by members of the New York State Police and West Seneca Police Department that revealed numerous items related to the investigation. Schrenk was arraigned in front of Hamburg Town Justice Walter Rooth and released on his own recognizance and subsequently arraigned in front of West Seneca Town Justice Dale McCabe, who also released Schrenk on his own recognizance. Schrenk is scheduled to re-appear in West Seneca Court on Friday October 17, 2014 at 9AM and again in Hamburg on October 30, 2014.

    Police are asking the public to report any previous incidents of a similar nature involving Schrenk to the New York State Police at SP Clarence at (716) 759-6831.

    Good. Jail time - about a year - would be appropriate.

    The guy's cover looks like a dog shit on it. Ribbons and medals both -- ribbons in the wrong place. God only knows what that rope is. Hmmm...speaking of rope....

    Suppose to be a service Aiguillette. If it is white, it designates him as enlisted personnel in the Marine Corp band.

    Figures he can't get that one right, considering he's dressed up as Marines.

    This is the way it should be.



    Keep in mind, he's suppose to be an officer and MP.

    Oh wow, this is getting stranger by the day.

    Now there is new info out about his activities and it's looking even worse for this poser.

    Get this, he is retired military, with honors.

    Retired Navy!

    From another report. When he was busted.

    A white cord draped over his shoulder had no place there. The way a full chest of medals and ribbons was displayed was improper. The sword he carried was not the type issued to a non-commissioned officer. He also claimed to be of the rank of staff sergeant,
    The report continues.

    At the charity events in the summer of 2013, he appeared in a federal police uniform.
    Even in most states where they don't have valor laws to protect military personal from posers. They do have laws about posing as police officers.

    Just an additional curiosity...
    Granted, it has been a while since I retired, but...
    When did any branch of the service start allowing reflective sunglasses in uniform?

    I wore them. As did most other guys from our office. In Anchorage during the winter on sunny days they were pretty much a necessity.

    Good grief. What is it with posers and piling it all on? It never occurs to them that just tacking random shit onto a uniform is what gets them noticed.

    But this was when Dyess was a SAC base, home of the 96th BW, before ACC came in and SAC went away. Dyess is now the home of the 7th BW under the ACC. One of the SP's was my best friend and the lead guitarist in a little band we had (I play bass guitar). He said they wore mirrored shades for the intimidation factor. He pulled duty at the Weapon Storage Areas (nukes) and flight line, alert pads, etc. We'd get kegs of beer and set the band up between the EM barracks and play our asses off. Those were good days. He would always jokingly say "Jimmy, PEACE is our profession, WAR is just our hobby".
