I thank him for his service. If his efforts with soldiers were truly not self serving I thank him for wanting to try to help. Maybe his efforts should have been directed more towards raising funds for real help for these vets though.

He seems to have had a history of self promotion. That's not a crime but he shouldn't have been promoting himself into a qualified mental health worker.

Have you got a problem Mikey? The guy is dead but you insist on knocking him. How about just closing your yap and let him rest in peace.

I think we shouldn't lionize people without understanding more about them. He was being sued by Ventura for the claim. He did have a self promotion thing going on. I can face that and still think he did good things or tried to. But he was human and had some foibles and issues obviously.
