This can't be real, can it?

I watched this a bunch of times and I was sure it was a joke. I thought it must be from Last Week Tonight or Full Frontal. Maybe SNL or Colbert?

But no, this seems to be a real thing.

When I saw the veteran's name was 'Warholic," I thought"okay, that settles it.This is satire. No one really has that last name that would be a term fora person addicted to war, right?"

Spotlight: Frank Warholic, Commander of the Montville VFW Post 5481

Frank Warholic, retiring VFW Post 5481 commander, proudly stands in front of the M60 Vietnam era army tank and memorial wall that honors township residents who served their country. An expansion of the area is in progress.
That's him! He's a real person.

I also thought the bit about how the bear loves to go to the golf course was a shot at Trump's frequent taxpayer-funded golfing weekends, but apparently this whole thing is real.

Satire is dead.
