Feds: AF 2-star faker got onto Huachuca – Air Force News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq – Air Force Times
TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man who authorities say faked his way onto Fort Huachuca by pretending to be an Air Force officer has been charged with various federal offenses.
Among the charges that Jeffrey Lee Bennett, 46, faces are identification document fraud and falsely presenting himself in an Air Force uniform.
Bennett entered Fort Huachuca wearing an Air Force uniform with the rank of major general, according to a federal indictment.
Bennett twice gained access to the post and made unauthorized purchases at the post exchange and commissary by pretending to be a general officer, the government says.
Bennett was in the Air Force in the 1980s, according to a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
