It Gets Worse: Far Left Activist Nathan Phillips Told Reporters He Served in Vietnam in 1976 — US Withdrew in 1973!

As reported earlier by TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks

The Washington Post has had to issue yet another retraction after falsely claiming that far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips served in the Vietnam War. He didn’t — but this lie was previously used to help raise money for a documentary about his life.

On Monday, the Washington Post quietly issued a correction to their story about the activist, saying that while he served in the Marines, he was never deployed to Vietnam.

“Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam,” the update reads.

But it gets worse…
Nathan Phillips told reporters at The Toledo Blade in July 2007 that he served in the Vietnam War from 1972-1976.

Nathan Phillips was quite the soldier.
The last US troops departed Vietnam on March 29, 1973.

Nathan Phillips has been lying about his military service for over a decade now.
