“If Mr. Poe has additional information to support his claims, we welcome it, and we will also continue to investigate and if appropriate, pursue a correction to his medical records and status,” Olson wrote.

In the “America’s Got Talent” episode that aired Monday, Poe told the celebrity judges that he spent 14 years in the military and was injured in Afghanistan.

“I had volunteered for a team to go out and clear buildings and help out with the wounded,” Poe said during a taped interview on the show. “There was a guy who comes up with a rocket-propelled grenade. I saw it coming down, and by the time I turned and went to jump on top of my guys, I yelled `grenade’ and the blast had hit me.”

It’s unclear whether Poe could face any legal action since he is no longer in the military. While a federal law called the Stolen Valor Act allows prosecution of people who make false claims about receiving medals, Poe didn’t say anything about medals in the NBC or WFAA segments.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule within a few weeks on whether the law is constitutional.
