“My personal motto is ‘Always remember that better men have done more and asked for less.’”

Staff Sgt. Aaron D. Butler entered the Best Warrior Competition for the opportunity to “bring out the best in myself as a person,” he said.

Butler, a medical logistics sergeant with the 4225th U.S. Army Hospital in Ft. Harrison, Mont., is one of only 28 Soldiers in the 206,000-strong Army Reserve selected to compete for this honor.  

Only 21 years old, Butler deployed to Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan and Djibouti in 2006-7.  There he was awarded the Army Achievement Medal by Maj. Gen. Thomas Robison, commander of the 377th Theater Support Command, for his support of the 20th Special Forces Group in the Horn of Africa.  His outstanding work ensured that combat units remained stocked with vital medical supplies.

In his civilian occupation, Butler is a rancher on KG Ranch in Three Forks, Mont.

    They are using your good name as they tried in Washington state to buy a condo. Here is the email- Somebody needs to allert the correct people to stop this. I knew that it was a scam once I got this letter. But we did email back and forth a few times as he asked about buying a place here.

    At this Juncture,let me undoubtedly confide in you here that i have a whole sum of US$25.6M (War Spoils) from which i will finance this transaction and considering my position as a Soldier on Peace Keeping Mission here,i will likely have difficulties in working this out through the Bank as my ID will be required. Moreover the Banks and money transfer centers here hardly cooperate with us in making wire transfers to the States and allied nations because of what feel about us westerners here.

    I am Planning to “cleverly” use the services of any of the Red Cross Officers whom i will approach to lift the whole money as contained in a trunk box to you based on trust for you to assist me in securing it,thereby assisting me in judicious investment into your Property stuff and others,then keep the rest for me till my return.

    More so, With your enshrinement of deep confidence on Security to me, i will give you proper and more details to enable you get well updated and feel secured.

    Like i previously told you,it is on trust and confidence in you as a licensed Realtor that i contacted you for your Assistance in getting this Property Transaction executed secretly and confidentially considering my job ethics.

    So, based on this insight i have given, what and how else do you feel this could be perfectly executed?

    May i have your urgent thoughts and what you feel to be compensated with for your sincere assistance here.

    I wait for your Response here.

    Aaron Butler

  8. Mr. Hutchinson and Ms. Guenther,

    Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. I have contacted SSG Butler and the civilian authorities. You are correct, that email address is NOT SSG Aaron Butler.

  9. ***WARNING*** Attempted email scam.

    Several people have contacted this blog with the information that a person is using SSG Butler’s name to send emails from This is not SSG Butler. This individual appears to be involved in some type of real estate scam; I recommend you delete unread if you receive an email from this address. SSG Butler and law enforcement authorities have both been notified.

    Thanks very much for your concern about our Soldier.

    Likewise, I was contacted from someone using SSG Butler’s name and created this email account:

    If law enforcement authorities need to contact me, they may at the email I used to post this, which is the one the fraudulent email arrived.

    Good luck all and thanks to our men and women in uniform,

    I had someone using your military id contact me about buying real estate in Fl that seem to be fraudulant.
    They used this address and sent a copy of your military id. Could be an email scam.

    • William Panny said

      I posted on 11/23/10, but neglected to add that the email I received was also about buying real estate. All evidence points to fraud, so others please be careful.

      Thank you to Maj Corey Schultz for staying with this and protecting SSG Butler and all of us!
