PROVIDENCE, R.I.  — The third and final defendant in an illegal scheme to supply $20 million worth of substandard counterfeit clothing and gear made in China to the U.S. military has been sentenced to two years in prison, federal prosecutors said.

Terry Roe, 49, of Burlington, North Dakota, was the manager of a supplier that purchased the counterfeit apparel from the other members of the conspiracy and acted as the point of contact with supply personnel at military bases, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Rhode Island.

Many of the counterfeit items, which were passed off as American-made and did not meet safety specifications, were ultimately worn or carried by Air Force personnel, prosecutors said.

They included more than 13,000 counterfeit jackets that were supposed to be made of a fabric difficult to detect with night vision goggles, but were not. Some gear that was supposed to be flame resistant was not.

Makes me what to get my hands on some of this clothing to see the difference.  It’s a wonder the US Air Force personnel did not pick that up with the amount of clothing issues.

Was this company a subcontractor of All Points Logistics?

I bought my point blank bullet resistant vest from Point Blank while working for Brin’ks and years later he got into trouble with the Military for selling faulty vests. Guy was a real A Hole we found out when we used to deliver Gold krugerands to his office out on Long Island NY. Treated his employees like shit.


If anyone thought War Dogs had a crap premise…

That film was an actual true story about war-profiteering; the novel and movie were a PR campaign during their trial to make them seem like drug-addled idiots. The guys bought rotting decades-old Chinese-made ammo in Albana that was supposed to be destroyed. It was then repacked in clear plastic garbage bags in repainted wooden storage boxes with fake Sellier & Bellot labels. They then dumped it on the Iraqi Army. Investigators were tipped off by the contractor who repacked the ammo because the scammers didn’t pay him.
Efraim Diveroli, the asshole who came up with the scheme, turned on David Packouz, the other guy, and stayed out of jail. Packouz did serious time and recently got busted for male prostitution. Diveroli is apparently still scheming and defrauding people.


Bet he won’t like the uniform he’ll be wearing for the next two years…or the diet.

For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ‘Chuck him out, the brute!’
But it’s ‘Saviour of ‘is country’ when the guns begin to shoot;
An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!”
