    ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. - Quick facts:

    • Two men are reportedly selling meat out of their van saying they are with a nationally-recognized veterans association.
    • Folds of Honor said the men are not associated with them.

     

    Two men are accused of approaching several people in Rogers County, asking for money and using a phony story about representing a nonprofit veterans group based in Green Country.

    Several people complained that the men showed up to their homes peddling meat out of a cooler in the back of their light blue van.

    The men reportedly said they are with Folds of Honor and also helping ex-convicts.

    A representative from Folds of Honor said the organization would not do something like that.

    Folds of Honor released a statement following the reports:
