Former Wyoming Marine falsely claimed combat wounds

LARAMIE, Wyo. – A former U.S. Marine who accepted gifts and awards, including a letter of Gov. Matt Mead, after falsely claiming to have been injured in a fight has pleaded no contest to a charge of obtaining property by false pretenses.

The Laramie Boomerang reports ( ) Adam P. Snow, of Laramie, entered the plea to the felony charges recently in state Circuit Court.

Last year, Snow agreed with a rifle and a plaque from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, after he said that he was wounded several times during combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also received a letter from Mead.

Albany County Undersheriff Josh DeBree says some area residents questioned Snow of the company.

An investigation, assisted by the U.S. Navy officials determined the Snow was a weather observer who was never injured.
