Gotta love a guy who feels the need to wear his military service on his shirt sleeves and apparently on his windshield too. You can see all the stupidness here:

That's a stretch at best and a joke at worst.

So Mr. JKF mod drove this Jeep from CA to Moab to go wheel and seek donations for the cause. They raised a sum total of $421.

By my calculations, they could have stayed home and instead of buying gas, staying in a hotel, and buying food, they could have quietly donated the money they saved to a worthy cause for local vets in need. Doing so would have been greater than a $421 donation.

That's what most people do...well, at least those people who donate for altruistic reasons and don't use the cover of a cause as a means to gain public accolades while concurrently reaping the pecuniary rewards of their "work" (e.g. free parts and a free build).

It's all good and you don't really need to wear our decals. As I had said before, the rule was put in place in an effort to help limit the amount of people who wanted to join our Rubicon run.

Looks like he established several .org/.coms for himself. Thus self pronounced "charities." Since he is ex vet, well, there you have it.

What a disgrace. And that fact he's gotten away with it and even ongoing support, looks even worse for those that support this fraud.

I'm damn sure he'll never show up again with all that's been uncovered. Well, at least not as his actual screen/user name. Maybe as sunny2.

Years ago, there was a similar scam artist named Jason and his outfit was called Wheelers for the Wounded or WFTW. He came on to my old forum trying to sell emblems that would replace the Trail Rated ones on our Jeeps. I had contacted him about it and said that I wanted to see his 501(c)3 and that after I did, I would help support him. Well, that's when he went apeshit on me and to this day, there's a big group of haters that still hate on me and call me un-American for questioning his motives. Funny thing is, Jason is nowhere to be found today and all the money and parts he got went with him.

So far, I have found no evidence that FallenHeroesJeep is a legal entity registered with the Arizona Secretary of State. I also can't find any 501(c) filing with the IRS for this purported charity. Nor have I been able to find anything about this charity (even that it exists) on any of the national charity search pages (these are used to help people determine the legitimacy of a charity before donating.)

That's odd. He specifically states that he would "never" take any money and as you can see in the screen shot above, is careful to use the word "donate". I wonder what exactly it would be that a person is donating to?

You know unfortunately this is the kind of thing that makes people leery to donate to what seem to be good causes. None of what he said on FB makes any sense. First off lets say he was legit ( even though we are all know that is not true) and he asked to go on the run why wouldn't he want to put a huge WOL sticker on his sponsored (make believe charity) jeep. Wouldn't that mean he is supporting our forum and if he was doing a charity wouldn't that make more sense to reach to to it's members? I am sorry but he is an idiot!!! Look as a business owner I get hit up for all kinds of donations and because of people like this I have to be careful who I am dealing with and that not only makes me mad but it makes me sad. There are great people and causes the need our help and it's unfortunate that people can ruin that. So you question it like Eddie did about the guy with jeep badges and you get hated on for even asking such questions. http://wayalife.com/images/smilies/angry.gif

Unfucking believable. He just flat out admitted there is no 501(c)(3) charitable organization. He takes money from honest people trying to make a difference for vets and then he decides where, how, and how much to give to other charities. No oversight, no reporting, no way for someone to know that their donation actually made it to a vet or a real charity.

I'd love to see this :asshat:'s tax returns. What a disgrace.

The equal retail value of every single part this guy received, and the value of labor received for free, needed to be claimed as income by this tool on his tax returns. They were not tax exempt donations to a non-profit.

Each and every dollar this guy received as a "donation" needed to be claimed as revenue or gross receipts on his tax returns. Again, they were not tax exempt donations to a non-profit.

Well hopefully he is following this thread as a guest and will dissolve what ever this organization he is scamming with. It would not surprise me if he disappears altogether and moves onto to another start up gig like being the founder of 'pocketbikesthathavefallenonsmidgets.org' There certainly is an air of narcism with all the things he has been the founder of.

It seems highly unlikely he is running a legitimate 501(c)3 with as little info that is available out there to back up exactly what this organization's true function is.

This will all sort itself out like it always seems to.

Well before all this I had no idea troops were real. My previous experiences were only with those little green army men toys. In my sheltered life, I thought they were only toys.

So he helped raised awareness that actual soldiers do exist.

So he gets people to give him stuff for free, then he gets himself free entrance into charitable events under the guise of being a charity, and then he has the moxie to spout his mouth off like he had anything at all to do with the organization of the charitable event or the collection of donations. This guy is lower than low and I sincerely hope that his "sponsors" will take a long hard look at what they are getting for their money.

He guys and gals, I attended the local JDRF dinner a few months ago. I think the event raised about $450k for juvenile diabetes. Does that mean I get to claim that I raised $500k for a charity?

Please people, find a way to support our troops, both active and veterans.

Edit: I hope with every ounce of my soul that the IRS comes after this guy because I find it hard to believe there is any chance in hell he is properly claiming the income (sorry, "donations") he receives on his yearly tax returns.

You cannot accept "donations" if you are not a charitable organization (e.g. 501(c) entity or association). It is income, plain and simple.

So this is what I don't get, why hasn't he specifically stated any of the charities he sends money to by their name? I'm sure he'll read this and update his post on his blog, but the question still stands.

To me it sounds like his trip to Moab cost over $1000 - $421.


At a recent event in Moab we wanted to try something new. We created a bunch of Jeep keychains with our own time and money. We asked that people make a donation for a troop charity instead of paying for the keychain. We were very fortunate and the Jeep community at the event helped us raise $421. 100% of that donation was passed onto the charity. This process was explained to each and every person who we met at the event. It cost me over $1,000 to attend the event in Moab, so if my intent was to try and make money for myself, I sure am going about it the wrong way. :)

Sadly, this is what our country is full of now... It seems the majority of our society will jump on a self-righteous band wagon without fully understanding the facts. The reality is that if he is not a 501(c)3 non-profit then he is FOR profit.

I still can't fully discern if the guy is doing all bad, but I can tell you the only reason to not be a non-profit is because you don't qualify. Non-profit taxes and paperwork are SOOO much easier to manage, provided you are not making money or benefiting. It's sad that when rightfully questioned on this, the questioners are considered the enemy over the guy that is representing himself as a "charity" falsely.

I can personally vouch for this.... My local club puts on a Jeep event that I asked for your permission to post a thread about in advertising for it. You asked if it was for profit or not, and I spilled the beans happily.

For those that are interested we are a 501(c)7. This event isn't free, but we only charge enough to cover expenses for putting it on. Last year we ended up with a bit of extra cash (I don't have concrete numbers but ~$1k) and 100% of that money went into improvements for this years event. (More rocks, larger shade tent, and equipment rental to totally redo the obstacle course.)

You happily granted my permission and wished success with the event. In the end I still haven't posted it because our web guy hasn't finished some things that for integrity purposes I feel must be done before I promote it. (some sponsoring vendors still aren't referenced on the site).

Anyway, I found you more than easy to deal with.... If we were making money, I would expect you to ask for something in return for the advertising.... As you deserve!

Yes it is something that could be proven, but I wouldnt be able to get this info. I could try and see if Stolen Valor would be willing to use his resources to get the definite answer but that could take weeks even months as he has to use outside sources and hes an active duty first sergeant.

Below are some of the red flags that really stick out from his "Lets clear the air" post on his site. He continues to (and smartly so) provide the loosest of details, his verbiage used is vague, very non-pointed, specifically trying to not be specific. This is used when an individual is being untruthful, has no hard data to back up any claims and cannot provided any factual measure of effectiveness of his efforts.


....I am always looking for different groups to spread the word to about the Fallen Heroes Jeep and our cause which is to help raise awareness for different troop charities.


....It is to attend different events and raise awareness for smaller troop related charities that most people probably don’t even know exist.

....We asked that people make a donation for a troop charity instead of paying for the keychain. We were very fortunate and the Jeep community at the event helped us raise $421. 100% of that donation was passed onto the charity.


....we are thinking of trying it again in late July with a car wash for another small troop related charity.

The repetitive use of the buzzwords "troop charity" do not match up with the name "fallen" heroes jeep. The name of his site is "Fallen Heroes Jeep" which by definition is bringing attention to those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who were killed in action. Providing charitable donations to the families, spouses and children of those fallen men and women is definitely a noble cause, however he is trying to raise awareness for different "troop charities" which means exactly what????? :thinking:

I am having a soap box moment here so skip if you want....

I am VERY thankful for the men and women that fight for our country and freedoms. While I never served, many close to me have. My grandfather (who was more of my Dad) served in WW2. I never once heard him ask for special treatment. In fact, he was sickened when he heard it coming from some service men/women before his death.

My point is that there seems to have been a shift in attitude in service members. My grandfather viewed it as a privilege to serve his country and expected/wanted nothing in return. Many of todays military seem to expect special treatment for something they volunteered to do. Don't get me wrong... I'm not ungrateful, but I am tired of having someone's service rubbed in my face as if I owe them something special.

Perhaps this is because supporting troops has become a popular tag to gain social acceptance. Lord knows we (as a nation) dropped the ball on supporting troops during Vietnam, but it seems we may have gone to the other extreme where now some service people feel entitled to special things/treatment for their service.

Again, I'm not saying I am not in support of our military, I AM! But issues like this actually work negatively on me and sour my taste toward supporting things like this. This is why I admire Eddie's stance. If he was a real non-profit none of this would've likely been an issue. But since he isn't and got called out on it.... Eddie and all affiliated with him are the enemy? WTF America!

I would say that the number of guests has something to do with comments like this that he posted on JK-F.

"Update: It seems like the attacks from this guys Jeep community have stepped it up a notch. I have been told that my home address has been posted on his community forum and I've now received three calls from "unknown" numbers. Two of them called me a name and hung up and the third one hung up right away.

My great grandfather was in WWI, my grandfather was in WWII and my father and uncle were in the Korean and Vietnam Conflict. My dad had four sons and none of use serviced. We sit and talk about it now in our older days and we all have one thing in common for excuses, the stories my dad and Tata told us scared the fuck out of us as kids.
I so regret not showing up and keeping our family proud.
Thanks to all that sacrificed directly or indirectly.

While I certainly encourage people to do their own research and come to their own conclusions about this guy and his "non-profit", and to post up anything they find showing his true colors, personal contact information should remain that, personal (even though this guy has posted his personal information in a public space.)

So, since this guy isn't a non-profit, isn't he technically obligated to report all of his "sponsor's" products as income on his federal taxes? According to his website, he has 9 “Title Sponsors” which provided a minimum of $1000 each in product, services, or labor. I’m sure the IRS would like him to pay tax on the value of all that product since he's not a designated “non-profit”, right?

You are correct and we don't know that he isn't.

The issue to me is that he implies he is running a non-profit, yet is not a 501(C)3. He may be giving all of his money to charities, but he not be as well. We will never know. My issue isn't with what he is doing, it's with the implied representation.

Since he is not a 501(c)3 then any money someone gives is not tax deductible. While I never give/donate based on this, I do usually claim my donations because it allows me to give more. If someone tries to, they will be falsifying tax documents. Unknowingly, but doing it nonetheless.

Yes, he is...just as he must do with each and every dime (which as far as we know for sure has only been $421) that he receives as a "donation" from people who give him cash. Despite everything that has happened today, this guy has hid from the question of accountability and has outright refused to account for the money he has received and provide any evidence that he actually gave that money to a real charity.

He sure has a nice tv though.

Not only has he outright refused to provide full disclosure of the money he's received and/or actually give to a real charity, he's been actively rallying up his supporters to attack me for being anti-veteran to take the focus off of him. He's about as good as they get.

Try this on for size. Let's say he in fact takes some of the money and passes it through to a real charitable 501(c)(3). He then gets the tax break for that donation. So, he could be taking in money without properly claiming it as income and then further screwing taxpayers by claiming a deduction against whatever income he has (from other ventures) for charitable donations made to fallen heroes by innocent third parties.

Yep, and he is good. He has spent an incredible amount of time reaching out on the interwebs to support his cause. His posts can be found on everything from apple support forums, to car forums, motorcycle forums, computer programming forums, etc. He has practice, let us not forget that his first rodeo was with a car.

Also looks like he had a previously failed endeavor's decal on his windshield. Man for a guy supporting fallen troops via charity with a Jeep, you'd think that'd be the reason for buying the Jeep initially and have that plastered on the windshield day 1...and why not buy the Jeep in army green to begin with?

I don't have time to read this whole thread, but I read the first page, and all I have to say is this-

The rubicon run was intended as a run with FRIENDS of Eddie's. And It was made very clear that if you had a problem with any of the rules, then don't come. All of the people that actually went on the run were happy to have a WAL banner, because they actually like this forum!

I can say that it would not have been the same experience if people who did't love the wayalife community came along. Like Eddie said, he wanted people to party with and have a good time with them- He didn't want the people who were just using our group like a tour guide service.

Lastly- when we were running the trail, there was no confusion what group or club we were with- people knew we were wayalife, not just another jeep club. The banners set our group apart, and made for awesome group shots!

Good call Eddie!! It's a good way to weed out the haters from the trail runs!

I really think it's a good idea. Same certain exceptions apply for irreplaceable decals such as jkx, but we know the jkx guys aren't asshats!
