Howard Manoian

Howard Manoian was born in 1924, a former soldier of the US Army during World War II.
He claimed he had landed in Sainte-Mere-Eglise in France. But his military records reveal he spent the war behind the front line. Mr Manoian was a local war hero in Sainte-Mere-Eglise, with a plaque erected in his honour. In fact Mr Manoian served with the 33rd Chemical Decontamination Company, which operated well behind the front line. He spent most of the war looking after a supply dump in northern France after arriving on Utah beach by supply ship. Mr Manoian claimed he had been hit by German machine gun bullets in the left hand and both legs during a fire fight on 17 June 1944, and then again by a Nazi plane that targeted the hospital where he was recovering. In fact his only war injuries were a broken middle finger while on standby in England and then heavy bruising to another hand.
The lies finally saw daylight when military records were obtained by the Boston Herald.
