The memo, which spread from Facebook to sites shopping conspiracy theories, looks authentic at first glance. It appears to be on Fort Carson letterhead and contains a smattering of Army terminology.
“As of 5 August 2016 2322 the Bill for the Executive Order Enacting Martial law is in effect,” the bogus memo begins. From there it lists units that will be sent to “training” for the nefarious plot. That’s where it falls apart.
The first unit listed is the post’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, which according to the memo has 350 soldiers. The brigade has 4,000. The second unit listed – the “1st Infantry Brigade Combat Team” – doesn’t exist.
