Texas vet says he believed he was injured in war
Soldier-turned-TV contestant whose claims were questioned says he's unsure what is real
By The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) ' A soldier-turned-TV contestant whose claims of being injured in battle were dismissed by military officials says he believed he was telling the truth but he does not know what is real.

Timothy Michael Poe appeared on Monday's episode of the NBC show "America's Got Talent," claiming he was injured by a grenade in Afghanistan in 2009.

Poe provided a photo of a soldier he passed off as himself. Minnesota National Guard records don't support his injury claims, and the photo actually shows another soldier.

Poe, who lives in Texas, cried in portions of an interview aired Friday on WFAA-TV in Dallas and ABC News. He told the Dallas station that he doesn't know why he "believed things that happened to me, and they might not have?"
