Joe Jonas ‘Lied’ About Serving In Vietnam

At a recent concert in Stockton, CA, Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers rose and spoke of an earlier time in his life.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Joe said to the group of pre-teen girls in attendance. “Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Joe Jonas never served in Vietnam. In fact, Joe Jonas had not even been born at the time of the conflict, according to records.

In an interview on Monday, Jonas said that he had misspoken about his service during the concert and might have misspoke on other occasions. “My intention has always been to be completely clear and accurate and straightforward, out of respect to the veterans who served in Vietnam,” he said.

This is not the first time Joe Jonas has be accused of lying about Vietnam. In 2007, he addressed a crowd outside a Gap Kids in Orange County, CA, where about 100 families had gathered. “When I returned (from Vietnam), I saw nothing like this,” Jonas said. “Let us do better by this generation of men and women.”

At a 2008 Kids Choice Awards after party, he praised the audience for paying tribute to troops fighting abroad, noting that America had not always done so. He also spoke openly about the “gook-ear necklace” he supposedly obtained during his nonexistent service.

    This is stupid.

  • jethro

    BS! I could have sworn I was in the jungle with that guy. He saved my ass.

  • Jamie Carter.

    He certainly looks to be some sort of a Vietnamese fish. Either that or gay.

  • Ellie Eclipse

    I think you are lying about all of this. What 20 year old guy would talk about HIMSELF being in Vietnam? Joe is smarter than that. He was probably talking about stuff he knew about when people came back from that war and everything and someone took what he said and twisted it.

    What a liar.

    • Jabbar ibn Husayn al-Mutrah

      He clearly should have to serve 2 terms in Veitnam now.

  • ME

    The necklace is refrencing Tim obriens “the things they carried”

  • kate

    i wonder if he served with lieutenant dan


    Joe Jonas should be taken into the streets and caned for his lies. He is an anti-American sexual deviant. He has corrupted sweet innocent virgins like Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. His ridiculous hair spawned vile retches Justine Beiber and Gracie Chance. I HATE HIM!

  • Dead Ed

    Who� does he think he is, a modern-day Captain America? Did he take the American Ingenuity Super Soldier Serum? Was he found frozen in a glacier that preserved his body for 40 years after falling from an unmanned plane while defusing a bomb on board?

    If that’s the case, then the CIA and FBI better investigate if Afghanistan found his war time partner “Bucky” who can’t remember who he is after being thawed out and brainwashed him to be their political assassin, Winter Soldier.

    And who is this Red Skull guy in Iran anyway?

  • Rebecca

    He never said about serving in Vietnam. Why would he lie if he never said anything about serving in Vietnam. If he did say about serving in Vietnam he wouldn’t lie about it. And he probably wouldn’t sereve in Vietnam.

    Lieutenant Dan…ice cream!

  • yeah ok

    What’s up with these people who would get the crap kicked out of them in boot camp no less served in any military ?
