Jeff Treu – Fake Marine Corps Veteran

| May 20, 2019

The folks at Military Phony sent us their work on Jeffery John Treu.  Treu lives in Oakdale, Nebraska and is 62 years old as of May 2019.

Treu has been involved in a lot of veteran activity where he lives. People where Treu lives have reported that he:

  • Claims to be a Vietnam Era Marine
  • Joined American Legion as a Vietnam Era Marine In Tilden, NE
  • Served as Vice Commander of American Legion Riders
  • Spoke numerous times on Veterans Day as a veteran Marine
  • Went on in several Honor Flights as a medic and a veteran
  • Presented Gold Star flags to families
  • Wears USMC hats and other bling that implies he was a Marine

Although an informant had supplied FOIA results on Treu, Military Phony had put in for a FOIA request to establish a clean chain-of-custody as a matter of investigative policy.  Military Phony was awaiting the results from NPRC when the story broke on Saturday May 18, 2019 and made the front page of the local news.

Norfolk Daily News – Wisner Police Chief’s Military Record Called into Question

It was extremely newsworthy because Treu was Police Chief in Wisner, NE and has been involved in many Veteran-themed functions and organizations.

Here are two FOIA results supplied to Military Phony.

We are told that Jeff Treu resigned as the Wisner Police Chief on Friday May 17, 2019 – the day before the story broke in the newspaper on Saturday May 18, 2019.

Treu was confronted about all of this and we are told that he admitted he was not a veteran but added that he never claimed he was.  If that is true, how is it that the local papers were convinced that he was a Marine veteran?  Moreover, how come Jeff Treu never corrected the newspapers when they made such a claim?  Is it conceivable that Jeff Treu never saw the newspaper articles?   Could that be even possible?

Treu was often solicited to speak at Veteran events.  This article states that Jeff Treu is a Marine veteran.

Jeff Treu has also helped to organize and participated in patriotic honor flights.  The newspaper articles claimed that on occasion Treu flew on them as a veteran.

The following article discusses the money involved in these flights.

Wahoo Newspaper – Support Remains High for Flights

Would these flights and out-of-town visits be considered something of value gained by someone perceived as having veteran status?  If Jeff Treu never claimed he was a veteran as he allegedly says and he helped in the organization of this event – wouldn’t he know it was for veterans?  Wouldn’t he volunteer in full disclosure that he was not a veteran before accepting something of value?

These are some very interesting questions.

In this article, Treu helped organize an event for Gold Star Families.  It also points out that he was in the American Legion Riders – a veteran motorcycle club.

In some unrelated matters, there was some interesting back and forth dynamics when Treu worked as a deputy and then afterward… involving a dog.

We only mention this because Treu had the veteran bling vest, and was a member of a veteran motorcycle club.  The dog may have completed the picture had it been used as a service dog.  It was a tragic ending for the dog – the wrangling was no fault of the dog’s and he deserved a good home.

A few years earlier, Jeff Treu wrote about his firing and mentions the dog.  What is notable is that he signs his name and title as “Vice President,”  “Nebraska Police, Canine Association.”

Treu certainly worked himself into very prominent positions in law enforcement.  We just wonder how much leverage was given to either his stated or perceived Marine veteran status to achieve some of these posts.

An unreliable rumor has it that Hollywood has picked up the story and a script is in the works.

Billy Bob Thorton has signed on for the lead.  The title is rumored to be “Treu Lies.”

I’m pretty confident you are correct sir. It is only rumor at this point, but I have strong suspicion he put down in his Character Affidavit that he was a Marine with the Police Academy. Obviously he also forged the application to join the American Legion as well.

NHSparky

Or used a forged 214.

Or the Post didn’t even bother to ask.

They very well might not have asked. Small town and he’s a cop in the county/city, they’d probably take him at his word.

“Oh, I never claimed to be a veteran, but I never said I WASN’T one, either. I just wanted that bling and adoration without the work and sacrifices.”

Dried up fucking cat turd.

And FWIW, aside from a boat ballcap I sometimes wear, I sport no bling and don’t get all that much adoration, nor do I seek it out. I got a DD-214 that says, “Honorable” in Block 24, and that’s good enough for me.

How much you want to bet there’s some ambulance chaser pouring through court records for cases in which this shitbag has testified?

Ok. Sometimes offensive violence is required…. what a sack of shit!

For the most part posers just make me laugh at them and they annoy me, but there are some that really, really piss me off. How dare a poser give the flag to a Gold Star Family. This cum gargling gutter slut makes me want to test the saying “the Tanana flats hides lots of sins”.

A police Chief.
That’s a rather tight group of people so I don’t think the veteran community is going take the biggest bite out of his sorry ass.

Then again maybe he can move to NJ and look up Mayor Spodofora. He would love to have Jeff Treu do Chief stuff for him.

“Treu Lies”. Sorry y’all, I couldn’t resist.

Bill R.

What is the last year one would have enlisted to be considered a Vietnam Era Vet? A 62 year old would have turned 18 in 1975, the year the communists took over but two years after we pulled out.

A Proud Infidel®™

YEP, another part of Jeffery John Treu’s yarn comes unraveled!

Keepin' It Real

Is there a chance?

Yeah, if he joined the USMC the day he turned 17 in 1974, skipped boot camp and took a red-eye military hop to Vietnam to serve in some secret advisory role.

Ah, so what you’re saying is there’s a chance.

NHSparky

Vietnam Era goes up to May 7, 1975, according to VA.

So possible, but unlikely.

AL uses same period, and next eligible period is 8/24/82-7/31/84.

I’d still like to know whose 214 this clown used, or if one was even required by the local Post.

Sounds like several someones have some explaining to do.

Old 1SG, US Army (retired)

This guy is a self promoting, wannabee, scumbag who needs to return the bling he’s wearing to the local Army-Navy store he swiped it from!

To be eligible for the Vietnam Era GI Bill you must have served on active duty after 31 January 1955, but before 1 January 1977 and served on active duty for more than 180 continuous days.

While this has nothing to do with actual service in Vietnam the term Vietnam era veteran was often used during 70’s and 80’s (and beyond) to describe those who served and were eligible for benefits…

Hondo

Yep. It’s possible for someone to have joined more than a full year after the Fall of Saigon and still qualify for Vietnam-Era GI Bill.

Wilted Willy

Gee Hondo, does this mean since I served from 69 to 75 that I could qualify for some benefits? I never had to go to the Viet of the Nam, but it sure would be nice to get something out of my service?

Morgan Blake

You did get something – the honor of service. 😉

Harry

When I was on active duty in the 90s, we had NCOs that enlisted between ‘74 and ‘77. They would brag about their Vietnam-era GI bill benefits – ours straight-up SUCKED by comparison. Then came the post-9/11 GI Bill; the 80s/90s GI Bill is caught in the shitty middle.

Morgan Blake

What I don’t understand is that it sounds like he lived in that same area after high school. Nobody thought it was hogwash because they didn’t see him go anywhere.

What about his family? His brother played on two National Championship teams at Nebraska and went to the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. His brother, his mom, his dad – nobody said to knock it off?

Deane

His brother is not Adam Treu that is his cousin. Adam was born in 1974 so much younger than Jeff and may not have a lot of contact with him.

Tracy Treu

Thanks Deane, you’re right. They’re cousins but haven’t been in touch for many years. We don’t live in Nebraska and have not since 1997. It’s deeply disappointing as Adam’s brother is an actual Air Force veteran of the Persian Gulf War. Had Adam known anything he would’ve said something. To assume anything less of Adam is irresponsible.

Just giving the rest of the phony fuckers a headstart. They’ll catch up by Thursday at the latest.

My .02 cents, if anyone cares (and they probably dont). I did my 20 years in the Corps. Retired in 2017. I’m still a relatively young fella compared to some of yall. I still live in the town I retired in which is close to the Marine Base. I have NO stickers on my car, I wear no shirt advertising my membership in said gun-club, nor do I wear any ball-caps, etc….

I KNOW who I am, I KNOW what I did, and I KNOW that I earned the title. I still maintain a blue-ID card that can prove it if anyone wants to challenge it. However, because I don’t go around spouting tales of daring do and heroics most people don’t go around ASKING. I was a 3043 Supply Admin and spent 3 years sucking wind as an 8411 canvassing recruiter (SHOULD’VE gotten a combat action ribbon for THAT one, smile).

This guy was apparently a LEGIT LEO and served as the Sheriff of his town. WHY wasn’t that enough? Until he comes out and provides an answer, he gets the standard one word answer all posers get from me; ASSHOLE.

Comm Center Rat

“I still maintain a blue-ID card that can prove it if anyone wants to challenge it.”

You speak the truth Marine. I’m sick and tired of the fakes who claim to be military retirees but can’t produce their official identification card. I’ve even met veterans who separated from military service and later qualified for VA Disability Compensation then proclaim themselves as “retired military.” They love the retired Army and Marine Corps car decals, t-shirts, and ball caps but are not legitimate retirees.

As an Army retiree I always tell my wife to ask for the pretender’s military retired ID card to verify. If they can’t produce the card, I go to the Army White Pages to see their status, if any.

I’m a little off topic on this rant but you hit a sore spot for me. It’s easier for a military retiree to prove his status than for many veterans, so if I’m not shown the ID card I’m not buying into their BS of 20+ years of long and faithful service (medical retirements excepted).

NHSparky

To that end, I have no issue explaining why I did 12 but didn’t stick around for 20, nor would I look down on anyone in a similar situation.

I had just gone as far as I figured I would and it was time to move on to a job that paid a shitload more and I never deployed.

Now I’m in a job gone from home 90+ percent of the time. Guess the joke’s on me.

Jay

Sparky: which is the reason I said FUCK IT at 20. They were gonna send me unaccompanied to Oki, I had just pulled a MEU, AFG deployment, and 3 years at a nightmare duty station I spent 3 years unfucking. I was DONE. Do I miss it. No. Do I miss my Marines. Every damn day. One texted me yesterday and said he made meritorious Sgt and he wishes I could’ve pinned him. THAT is the stuff that made me wanna stay in. END TANGENT.

I earned my rights/benefits of membership, so I feel like I can talk shit where warranted. You were medically retired: you RATE. You did 13 years 20 years ago and got high year tenured and now tell people you are a RETIRED Sgt? Fuck you

NHSparky

Yup. Nuke pipeline, 7.5 years at sea, 3 years as a recruiter, and my choices were gonna be 1–Pearl 688, 2–Pearl 688, 3–Pearl 688. Ex wanted no part of that and I wasn’t (yet) ready for a divorce or spending the rest of my career as a geo bachelor.

That and the chances of me making Chief at that point were somewhere between zip point shit and nada. Prototype Sailors of the Year weren’t making it, and if they weren’t, I sure as fuck had no hope.

Jay

Sounds pretty stellar in my book. I had THREE P’s as a Sgt during the midst of OIF/OEF when they were promoting fucking EVERYONE. Somehow, I slipped through the damn cracks on recruiting, made SSgt and got to stay in. During the TERA timeframe, a LOT of people that were sitting on 2P’s and 15 years+ got “voluntold” to retire. That opened up Gunny for me. I was in zone for MSgt and had all the checks in the boxes but my heart just wasnt in it anymore. Not to mention my BODY sounded like a damn bowl of rice krispies every damn morning, lol. Oh well. I had a HELL of a ride over 20 years. Did some amazing shit. Started with one wife, retired w/a different one and had 3 GOOD ASS kids. I’m living the American Dream. As an added bonus, I get to read about jabronis like JEFF TREU on a near daily basis. That always makes me feel better about my life choices.

Jay

Which is probably why most LEGIT retirees dont say much. Too easy to verify and too easy to sit back and watch the fireworks.

Jeff LPH 3, 63-66

I wear Fire Dept Tees, Navy Tees, DOO WOPP Tees, Fire Dept ball caps, Navy ball caps and a Nat Guard ball cap. Lots of WW2, Korean and Viet vets down here in South Florida wearing their ball caps and tees I meet in Publix, Doctors offices, malls and cruise ships.
Music trivia-
The word DOO WOPP was coined in the 1970’s most likely from the same word being used as back ground in a lot of those 50’s songs. Back in the 50’S, that type of music was called Vocal group harmony or R&B Vocal group harmony.

Dennis - not chevy

Notice the USAF lapel insignia beneath the EGA on his vest? This is not the first time a phony has appeared with both devices on his vest. Coincidence or a secret sign phonies use to recognize each other?

An Old Arty Sgt

Doing good doesn’t make his lies right. He did it knowingly he wasn’t a veteran and wanted the respect military service brings. It’s just plain fraud. I’m sure if you look at his actions, you will see he profited from all his work and should be charged. I wonder about his hiring as Police Chief and or if he got a “grant” for a veteran owned business.

rgr1480

Treu, in German, means “Loyal.”

Jeff Treu was not loyal.

How to say “disloyal” in German?
Untreaue

He should be called Jeff Untreaue.

Not sure about disloyal, but this dude is in the Scheissehause after these shenanigans.

Yes, yes I know that’s not proper German, but the Germans I’ve met understand what I’m saying so that’s good enough for me.

The only thing that JEFF TREU is a veteran of is the Butt Pirate Wars at Brucies Bath House (Entrance in the Rear).

I hope someone is taking a real hard look into his employment history and the number of times he claimed to be a Marine when he applied for a position.

Hey brother I turned all my evidence I have to the FBI on him, for possible criminal Stolen Valor. I learned today he allegedly has been writing job recommendations for people for years signing with Jeff Treu, United States Marine Corps. Also apparently a Congress women has found out about him and went on the Honor Flights with him I heard she is pissed.

Interesting Census Stats and “Been There” Wanabees:
1,713,823 of those who served in Vietnam were still alive as of August, 1995 (census figures).
~ During that same Census count, the number of Americans falsely claiming to have served in-country was: 9,492,958.
~ As of the current Census taken during August, 2000, the surviving U.S. Vietnam Veteran population estimate is: 1,002,511. This is hard to believe, losing nearly 711,000 between ’95 and ’00. That’s 390 per day. During this Census count, the number of Americans falsely claiming to have served in-country is: 13,853,027. By this census, FOUR OUT OF FIVE WHO CLAIM TO BE Vietnam vets are not.

Ryan Smith

Where did you get this data, specifically the last line, “During the Census county, the number of American’s falsely claiming to have served in-country is 13,853,027.” Is that cited as a question in the census, because I never have seen that? Just curious.

Mason

I’ll also cast a suspicious eye on those numbers, since the census is done every ten years on at the top of each decade, not in the middle. Also don’t recall there being any questions about military/veteran on there.

1995 was the study date. It was written by a Naval Officer, and 1SG Nick Bacon, who was awarded the CMH. I sent the a copy to the site Admin maybe they will publish it.

Vietnam veterans’ personal income exceeds that of our non-veteran age group by more than 18 percent. 87% of Americans hold Vietnam Veterans in high esteem. There is no difference in drug usage between Vietnam Veterans and non-Vietnam Veterans of the same age group (Source: Veterans Administration Study) Vietnam Veterans are… Read more »

Gunner Dad

This story really pulled my trigger.

I’m too am a “Vietnam Era Veteran”, former LEO and 100% disabled from Gulf War 1.

This disgusting piece of putrid whale shit stole 2 or 3 all expenses paid Honor Flight trips to D.C. from REAL Veterans. One of the Purposes of Honor Flight is to take vets who otherwise cannot afford too.

Their is no question in my mind that this cocksucker used his “Service” to forward his position in law enforcement. Been there, seen it and done it.

Thank you Proud Infidel! You cover every thing I could say. Semper Fi brothers. 75-92.

Gunner Dad, I did a bit of research and checked out this charity (Patriotic Productions Inc. of Omaha, Nebraska) that supports Treu with this comment in the Norfolk Daily News.

“However, co-owner of Patriotic Productions, Evonne Williams, came to the defense of Treu in the comments of a Facebook post.

The post read, in part: “It is deeply disheartening and disturbing the ‘piling on’ of Jeff Treu. Claiming to be a veteran is hardly an original sin. We’ve never known him to claim to be a combat or decorated Marine. Jeff has raised tens of thousands of $ for honor flights in Nebraska over the last decade, so that many veterans could go. We appreciate all that he has done to help us.”

This part of her comment really pissed me off:

“Claiming to be a veteran is hardly an original sin.”

Also did a check on Charity Navigator.

Yeah, we’ll this is not surprising considering the fact that they could be pulled into a lawsuit.

Think about this – as fine a mission as Patriotic Productions set out to accomplish, they still were involved with someone falsely misrepresenting themselves and raising money for the organization using that leverage.

She’s trying to downplay it. Then she retreats to a defensible position of – “We’ve never known him to claim to be a combat veteran or decorated Marine.”

So – we’re trying to establish a scale and see where somebody fits along that scale?

“This disgusting piece of putrid whale shit stole 2 or 3 all expenses paid Honor Flight trips to D.C. from REAL Veterans. One of the Purposes of Honor Flight is to take vets who otherwise cannot afford too.”

THAT makes my blood boil as well, that’s 2 or 3 LEGIT Vets he bumped from those flights, FUCK HIM sideways with rusty concertina wire wrapped in asbestos soaked in diarrhea and nuclear waste!

RCAF-CHAIRBORNE

He needs a concertina catheter and a broken glass/lemon juice enema

HMC Ret

From the newspaper article: “Treu has raised money for and participated on numerous honor flights put on by Patriotic Productions out of Omaha. Falk said Treu has raised a significant amount of money for the company, though he went on the trips to Washington, D.C., as a volunteer and as an EMT and not as a veteran.”

That’s not the point. What is the point is that at least twice he had what was probably a free trip (as in not paid by him) to DC. So what? That means that at least two real veterans didn’t have the seat he took, the meals he ate, the recognition he received. So while he’s soaking up the accolades, real veterans are being deprived. It’s nice of him to raise money for the trips, but I’m thinking he probably did so to allow himself a seat on the plane. Someone made a good point. I wonder how many court cases he testified on in which his status as a supposed Marine Corps Veteran had some sway on members of the jury?

Funny stuff, Sir.

Mustang Major

Hard to figure out why someone wants to be a poser, but I guess there are a few reasons that make them want to do it.

In the case of Jeff Treu, I wonder if his life was so miserable that he had to claim USMC service to brighten the dim corners of his life.

Jeff- How did living a lie work for you?

Looks like this dude sued the sheriff’s department back in 2008 after being fired. One of the issues he brought up was that a fellow deputy conducted a background check of him. It may be a stretch but….

Jesus christ, embarrassment to Nebraska and Police Force. How could this even happen? How in the hell could Legion have it.

Everyone got egg on their face.

Now that he’s resigned, the defense lawyers will have a field day on every case he ever testified in.

11Z

Not sure if anyone else caught this, but Camp Hansen in Okinawa is named after USMC Private Dale M. Hansen, MOH recipient, from Wisner Nebraska – the same town this POS lied about being a Marine. Fuck him.

Frank W Urban

Te be a part of the American Legion you have to show a DD214….just saying,and the American Legion Riders are supposed to be more hard core about vetting…or were they just desperate for members in that area and decided that a police chief would be good for image. still this piss poor excuse of a piece of dogshit, I have actually met him…..yes he claimed to be a Marine Veteran, he walked away when he found out I was a real MARINE VETERAN. I HAVE NEVER CLAIMED TO BE MORE THAN WHAT I AM, a somewhat humble aircraft mechanic….. but hey Nobody ever checked out Herbert E “Buck” Urban for claiming he was a green beret and an officer…so I really do not fucking care, the wannabes abound in all fucking circles, real vets smell them out like bloodhounds.

Hondo

In theory, you are correct about DD214s and the AL and VFW. In practice, given the number of bald-faced liars featured in past articles here from the AL and VFW it’s fairly clear that wasn’t always the case (or that the DD214s weren’t even looked at if provided). I’d guess that still may be the case today at some posts.

Claw

You only have to show a DD214 to be a “voting” member of the AL. There are at least a half dozen options available (Associate, Canteen use only, Sons of American Legion, Legion Riders, etc, etc,) to being a “part” of the AL that do not require any service, in any form, at all to join. Really, all that is needed, is the cash to pay the annual dues.

PTBH

A reliable source at the American Legion said Treu was booted – not clear if it was AL or AL Riders they were talking about.

PSC(EXW) Ryan J Smith, USN(Ret)

He was been removed from the Nebraska American Legion on May 17, 2019. I talked to Nebraska Adjutant Dave Salak on the phone and have emails to confirm it. It’s also been reported in the Neligh News check it out. Unfortunately he was not properly vetted and his sweet talking bullshit got him in, joining Tilden, NE, Legion as Vietnam Era Marine. Unfortunately, he is in the Dodge Sons Of American Legion which is legit as his father served in the Navy. I submitted a complaint against that service last week, on grounds of dishonestly and disrespect to the Sons Of American Legion per their Bylaws. On this part he has to offered due process, I suspect he will be kicked out though.

Aaron

I first met Jeff in the beginning of 2010 when I moved to Norfolk, NE as the Local USMC Recruiter. Norfolk, NE is about 20 minutes from Tilden, NE (Location of HERO’s, the bar he owned. Jeff came into the recruiting office claiming to be a USMC Vietnam Vet. I have gotten to know Jeff pretty darn good for the three years I was stuck in NE. I spent many a nights getting hammered at his bar. My wife showed me this article this morning and my heart dropped. There is even a picture of Jeff and I hanging on the wall of his bar. I am disgusted that I had ever gotten to know him at all. Fuck you Jeff Treu. This is “treu”ly a slap in the face, not just to me and my family, but also the several Marines I have introduced him to, not to mention all Marines in general. I even took the Recruiting Station CO & XO to his bar to me Jeff. You had better hope I never see you again when I go back to NE to visit the wife’s family..and I will look for you.

PSC(EXW) Ryan J. Smith, USN(EXW)

Aaron that was the same way I felt brother. The very last day I wore my Navy uniform I did a military funeral honor detail for a Navy Veteran that passed away from Tilden and went to his bar. It was the first and only time I went there. Front and center on the bar was a picture of me and his father in my uniform, as I was his father’s guardian on the Honor Flight. I bet his father is looking down from heaven in total shame. He used you and I and many others real veterans to gain credibility to live his lie and I was his center piece of his bar. The fucker had no sense of honor. I think because he was a cop and so over the top in being involved in veteran stuff I never questioned him. Well keep an eye on this story I have a feeling this is only the tip of the iceberg, more shit that will make your jaw drop is coming. Jeff was “Treuly” not a friend.
