AURORA, Colo. - AURORA -- A school district investigation into the resume of an Aurora school board member confirms what Denver7 already discovered.
The Aurora Public School Board conducted its own investigation into board member Eric Nelson after reporting by Denver7 and the Colorado Statesman uncovered discrepancies in Nelson's resume and military record.
Nelson, who was running for state representative for an Aurora district at the time, has denied the inaccuracies that have been uncovered.
Questions about Nelson’s military service came up after a report by the Colorado Statesman focused on a photograph of Nelson in a decorated Air Force uniform that was reportedly posted on Nelson’s Facebook page. That photograph has reportedly since been taken down.
Denver7 showed the photograph to the Air Force, which tells us the photograph shows Nelson wearing 10 ribbons on his uniform. The Department of Defense confirms Nelson was an active duty Air Force member from April 16, 1998 to June 18, 1998, but said they have no awards or decorations on file for Nelson.
