 He has claimed numerous Awards, Medals and Ribbons on two different Bios.. He claims that he can't remember things that happened 25 years ago. So he has just guessed on what MIGHT be there. He can't remember what Marine units that he was assigned to. But he can remember what Navy Ships & US Embassies that he claims to have been stationed aboard or at. He has claimed that it is better to put something up for a Bio..Than what it is to put nothing at all up.

 Walking Veteran Called Fraud

WBRZ ; Walking Veteran Called a Fraud


"I can't ask for donations, I'm not a 501-C3, I can't say, 'M'am will you give me twenty dollars,' but if someone walks up to me and says, 'Sir, I want to feed you, here's ten dollars or here's twenty dollars for your cause....."

"However, if somebody walks up to me and says 'Mac, I saw your interview on Fox, I want to help give to the homeless, here's X amount of money.' Then, I didn't solicit for it." - Mac Mcquown 3/18/14

10022013 20:51 ...A WALK THAT NEARLY ENDED TRAGICALLY...0430 THE ALARM COMES ALIVE . I HAVE TO QUICKLY SILENCE IT BECAUSE OF THE CONCERN OF WAKING THE FIRE FIGHTERS. THIS IS MY SECOND NIGHT SLEEPING AT THE NEWTON MS FD HOUSE . THEY WERE KIND ENOUGH TO ALLOW ME TO COME BACK HERE AFTER WALKING TO LAKE YESTERDAY. I WANTED TO GET UP BEFORE THEM SO THAT I COULD HAVE TIME TO DO A GOOD WORKOUT. MY PLAN DO ABS , EFFECTIVE YET QUIET ENOUGH SO AS NOT TO DISTURB ANYONE. 0510 AB WORKOUT DONE. NOW TO HOP ON LINE AND DO MY NORMAL MORNING ROUTINE. 0547 THE FIRE HOUSE ALARM GOES OFF THE THE FIRE FIGHTERS SCRAMBLE TO A CALL. I COULD HEAR THE CALL OVER THE P.A. SYSTEM. 18 WHEELER TURN OVER. I WILL PRAY THAT NO ONE IS SERIOUS INJURED. I HAVE THREE MORE HOURS TO GET ALL MY THINGS IN ORDER BEFORE MY RIDE BACK TO LAKE MS ARRIVES AT 0900. MORE TIME THEN I REALLY NEED . BUT I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE VERY EARLY THEN LATE. 0723 TIME FOR SOME BREAKFAST. ON THE MENU TODAY...OATMEAL. I AM EATING MORE OF THAT LATELY . HEALTHY AND FULL OF ENERGY. 0840 EVERYTHING IS READY TO GO. NOW JUST WATCHING TV CATCHING UP ON THE NEWS. OBAMA CARE AND GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN , WELL DON'T GET ME STARTED .  0851 TIME TO GATHER MY GEAR AND GET OUTSIDE. 0857 RIGHT ON TIME. WE LOAD UP MY CART AND HEAD TOWARDS LAKE MS. SOON WE REACH MY STARTING POINT . HE DROPS ME OFF AND CONTINUES TO THE FOREST FD TO DROP OFF MY CART. I WOULD PULL MY CART TODAY BUT THE SHOULDER ON THIS ROAD IS VERY VERY SMALL. BARELY ENOUGH ROOM TO WALK. THE TRAFFIC IS SPEEDING AT 55 MPH. JUST TO DANGEROUS. THE WEATHER SEEM NICE, VERY CLOUDY ONLY A 10 % CHANCE OF RAIN. SO I SHOULDN'T GET WET TODAY. ITS ONLY 8 MILES SO SHOULD BE ANOTHER EASY CALM DAY. I HAVE A STRONG HEAD WIND AND IT CAUSES OLE GLORY TO COME ALIVE. SHE WIPES IN THE WIND. LOVE HEARING THE FLAG SNAP IN THE WIND. I HOLD HER IN MY LEFT HAND SO THAT I MAY SALUTE ONCOMING TRAFFIC. AT TIMES I WILL GET HIT WITH A SIDE WIND OR TAIL WIND AND IT MAKES IT VERY CHALLENGING TO HOLD HER UPRIGHT. BUT NO WORRIES ITS ALL WORTH IT. NEVER DIP HER NEVER ALLOW HER TO TOUCH THE GROUND. THE TERRAIN TODAY ITS TOO BAD. SOME ROLLING HILLS THE ONLY REAL CHALLENGE IS THE LACK OF A SOLID SHOULDER. SOME OF THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC IS GETTING PRETTY CLOSE. IF I NEED TO I CAN JUMP INTO THE TREE LINE OF DITCH. I HAVE HAD TO RESORT TO THAT BEFORE. A FEW TIMES EVEN HAD TO JUMP INTO WATER TO AVOID ONCOMING TRAFFIC. PEOPLE TEND TO STEER WHERE THEY LOOK. SO WHEN THEY SEE ME AND LOOK LEFT THEY TEND TO STEER LEFT AND USUALLY EITHER RIGHT AT ME OR VERY CLOSE. DESPITE THE OBSTACLES TODAY I AM MAKING PRETTY GOOD TIME. THERE ARE MOMENTS THAT NO TRAFFIC IS COMING AT ME AT ALL WHICH GIVES ME A BREAK. HOWEVER FOR THE TRAFFIC THAT DOES MOST OF IT IS LARGE LOGGING TRUCKS. THIS MORNING WHILE WAITING FOR MY RIDE TO SHOW UP I DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT. I DOWNLOADED TO MY PHONE ONTO MY MP3 PLAYER MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES THAT I FOUND ON YOU TUBE. I FIND THAT THEY HELP ME MAINTAIN MY POSITIVE AND OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK ON LIFE. TODAY WHILE WALKING I LISTEN TO THEM. MUST ADMIT THEY GAVE ME AN EXTRA BOOST IN MY STEP. MY FAVORITE MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE THAT I READ TO MYSELF EVERYDAY IS SOMETHING WRITTEN BY A MISS MARIANNE WILLIAMSON ENTITLED " OUR  DEEPEST FEAR " Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others....THAT IS SO POWERFUL TO ME. I HAVE THAT PLAYING IN MY EAR AS WELL. YEA I AM DEFINITELY WALKING STRONGER AND WITH MORE BOOST IN MY WALK TODAY. MANY PEOPLE AGAIN SHOWING THEIR SUPPORT. WOW MISSISSIPPI ROCKS WHEN IT COMES TO BEING PATRIOTIC. TIME SEEMS TO FLY BY TODAY. 12:41 I LOOK AT MY BEARING ON MY GPS AND IT SAYS I HAVE ONLY A FEW MILES TO GO. I BELIEVE ITS BREAK TIME. NEED TO RECHARGE MYSELF. THE WEATHER REPORT CALLED FOR 95% HUMIDITY. I CAN FEEL IT CLIMBING. FOUND A NICE SHADE TREE, BROKE OUT MY SMALL PORTABLE FIELD CHAIR AND GOING TO DRINK DOWN SOME NICE COOL GATOR AIDE. AHHHHH LIFE IS GOOD. APPROX 20 MINUTES GO BY AND ITS TIME TO HIT IT AGAIN. I FEEL ENERGIZED AND READY TO FINISH THIS BAD BEAR. MORE SUPPORT. A FEW HAVE STOPPED TO SHAKE MY HAND SHARE HUGS AND THANK YOUS. AFTER WALKING FOR AWHILE I GET A FIX ON MY LOCATION 1.8 MILES LEFT. NO WORRIES A WALK IN THE PARK. SOON I AM AT THE POINT WHERE I HAVE TO TURN LEFT TO REACH THE FIRE DEPT. JUST AS I CROSS THE SMALL STREET I HEAR A VEHICLE BEHIND ME AND ITS COMING FAST. I CANT QUITE TELL WHERE ITS COMING FROM. THIS IS OCCURRING QUICKLY SO I INCREASE MY PACE TO REACH THE GRASS AND THEN ITS THERE, ITS RIGHT ON ME I ALMOST STOP AND FREEZE BUT I PUSH PAST THE FEAR AND THEN IT HAPPENS. THE PASSENGER SIDE OUT SIDE MIRROR STRIKES MY BACKPACK, SPINS ME AROUND TO FAST TO REALLY REACT TO IT AND NOW I AM FACING THE TRUCK AS IT SPEEDS BY AND I AM KNOCKED OFF MY FEET AND HIT THE PAVEMENT WHERE THE TRUCK WAS JUST SECONDS EARLIER. I QUICKLY GET BACK TO MY FEET AND JUMP TO THE GRASS. I FALL TO ONE KNEE AND MY BODY IS SHACKING . HEART RACING , BLURRY VISION. I LOOK UP AND DOWN BOTH DIRECTIONS OF THAT ROAD AND NO TRUCK IN SIGHT. ALL I GOT WAS THAT IT WAS WHITE. GETTING BACK TO MY FEET I CATCH MY BREATH AND LOOK UP AT GOD. WOW DUDE...THAT WAS CLOSE. ANOTHER FEW INCHES AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN A HOOD ORNAMENT. THANK YOU FOR PUSHING ME PASSED IT. IT TOOK A FEW MINUTES TO SETTLE DOWN. BUT I WAS OK. DID A QUICK BODY CHECK AND NOTHING BLEEDING . OK JUST ANOTHER BLOCK AND I AM SET FOR THE DAY. LIFE IS GOOD. GOD IS GREAT . SEMPER FI 


 To Whom it May Concern:

This letter is to inform your office and the appropriate authorities of a situation that is untenable and that must be corrected immediately. A former US Marine, Leonard " Mac " McQuown , allegedly founded a charitable organiz
ation called Operation Walk America. I use the term allegedly because by all indication, he is using the “organization” as a ruse to solicit funds and convert them to personal use. I urge you to conduct an investigation and if your office determines that what I and others believe to be true is in fact occurring, we request that your office take immediate action to get Mr. McQuown to cease and desist.

I believe Mr. McQuown was given a Bad Conduct Discharge. He claims that he was a Sergeant in the USMC, but research discloses that he was given a Bad Conduct Dischrge and was demoted to the rank of Private First Class (it appears that he was dismissed from the USMC and reduced in rank due to being a deserter – over 200 days of unauthorized absence). Mr. McQuown was also convicted of check fraud and shoplifting. Undeterred, Mr. McQuown wears his USMC uniform in public. This is clear violation of MCO P 1020.34GIS which states that only retired service members and veterans who were honorably discharged may wear the uniform of a branch of the United States military. Mr. McQuown abridges this regulation frequently and should be made to stop.

In addition, Mr. McQuown launched Operation Walk America (OWA) more than two years ago. This organization purports to be a private nonprofit organization that raises funds to provide financial assistance to charities that focus on providing benefits to veterans. OWA, and, therefore, Mr. McQuown, promotes its cause by attempting to walk to every state capitol in the country, a total of approximately 15,000 miles. To date, OWA has never held a press conference to disclose the recipient of donated funds nor has it released any statements regarding the beneficiaries of collected monies. Based on information and belief, Mr. McQuown has embezzled the donated funds and converted them to his personal use. He has used the funds for hotel rooms, multiple gifts and to pay for a cruise to Hawaii to visit the state capitol there. At the very least, he has commingled the funds, which would also be a breach of his fiduciary duty. 

I humbly request that your office look into this matter at your very earliest convenience. Conversely, if your office is not the appropriate agency to investigate the matter, I would reques that your office forward this statement to a more appropriate entity or individual. Mac McQuown is disgracing not only himself, but also the US Marine Corps and the thousands of men and women in uniform who proudly serve our great nation. You must prevent him from doing that.

Respectfully,



A Concerned American Citizen

  4. I am pretty sure he was my room mate in MSG school. my x burned most of my USMC stuff but I'll go dig up a photo, I am pretty sure.
    One comment, we did not get the MSG ribbon, it was not created until 1997. I got out in 90, so I never wore one

    1. Hey, Richard. Is this the same guy. If so, what do you remember about him? Are you buying his "I'm only walking in order to help homeless veterans" story?

    2. Hi, Richard. So, did you figure out if he's the same guy you roomed with? If so, what do you remember about him? Do you buy his story about helping homeless veterans?

  5. While I have never met Mac , I was a big supporter of his when he first started his "walk" I bought one of his over priced para cord bracelets and urged a number of my friends to do so as well . Then the truth about Mac's Service & Discharge started to come out .I witnessed Mac not just evading the questions , but flat out lying to everyone about everything . Mac then contacted me on FB after I had commented on a page that was not flattering to him . Mac flat out lied to me as he stated that " Stole Valor had investigated and cleared him ".

    After sharing Macs DateHookUp Profile I received a number of messages from outraged ladies whom Mac was stringing along for funds and internet sex chat . Mac swore to each of them that they were "The Only One " for him . Needless to say these ladies are now aware that Mac is a con artist and a sexual deviant .

    Quite frankly Mac is a lying SOS and his "walk" is nothing but a front for him to feed his ego and his deviant life style .

  6. Mac has spent more time off the road than on . He left Pearl Mississippi on October 15th 2013 ( Chief Carl Kibby of the Pearl FD put him on a bus headed to his sister's home in Ocala ) Mac resumed his "walk" on January 14th vowing to spend each and every night in his tent . That hasn't happened as he has spent the majority of his nights in private homes and hotels . I Mac's next stated destination is Baton Rouge ( a distance of 172 miles ) yet he has failed to reach that goal as of 2/21/2014 . Mac would have been there by now if he "walked" even 5 miles a day .

    Based on all the evidence available Mac is a liar , con artist and a womanizer who is using his walk as an excuse to avoid getting a job , to feed his ego and find fresh victims for his deviant life style .

  7. There is a Facebook group dedicated to exposing Mac and his lies:

  8. Have you ever known a true Marine who didn't believe in free speech? Me neither. When I became suspicious of this EX-Marine was when I questioned where the money from this walk was going and what homeless vets were benefiting from it. My question was courteous and just an inquiry. Mac wrote to me off the list and told me that if I was going to "harrass" him, he was blocking me and unfriending both me and my husband.

    Since that time, I've discovered many too many negative things regarding this poser to ever think he's honorable. He's scamming a LOT of good people out of a LOT of their good money. And, he's spending it on less than honorable things....the consensus is mostly porn, booze, woman and drugs. BEWARE!!!

  9. First off, you have to understand the mindset of McPerve. Most Con Artists thinks they are smarter than the average person is. They believe they can talk or write themselves out of trouble. I was just reading the latest post regarding McClown’s story about the man who drove over an hour to give McFatty $10.00 and how he latter found a man with a cardboard sign asking for help and he gave that man the $10.00. How sweet, problem is, it’s all a bunch of bullshit just like McStupid’s life. McDumbDumb has always been an underachiever not accomplishing much in his pathetic existence. I would venture to say that his fraudulent walk is not the first Con that McGasBag has been involved in. The damage he has done and continues to do to the legitimate and needy veterans causes is irreparable. Most good and decent people become very guarded once they realized they have been duped by the McAnalLeakage’s of the world. I share with all the good people and honorable veterans the frustration and anger experienced while watching and reading about his antics. They disgust me to no end and at times, I wished I could reach through my laptop and slap some sense into him. However, we must exercise patience and refrain from any threats because he is the type of person to use it to his advantage. The longer he is allowed to engage in his illegal activities the better. I know there will be collateral damage but let’s hope it is limited by the efforts of the facebook page Mxx Mxxxxxx Marine Deserter Con Artist. He always challenges the group to prove beyond blah blah blah. McCutandRun held all the cards making it almost impossible to prove the things needed to place him and his cohorts where they belong. Nevertheless, something tells me the events that unfolded in the last two days equal PROBABLE CAUSE. And, with that you can utilize all the tools for a proper investigation.

    I called the office of Louisiana’s states Attorney General today and much to my surprise I spoke with a representative of Mr. Caldwell (Attorney General).
    I will summarize our conversation because this is getting rather lengthy.

    She said;
    1) The AG’s office had been notified of McHerpes some weeks earlier. (someone has been doing their homework)
    2) The AG’s office is aware of the Baton Rouge interviews
    3) The AG’s office is aware of Raven Outreach’s response
    4) The AG’s office is aware of McLiar’s explanation of events.

    Beyond that, she could not discuss it any further. She asked me for my name and phone number and said she would call me if there were further developments.

    Kindly

    Jay
