Spies, Lies, Invisible Ink and Taking the Names of Dead Children in Texas

This isn’t a TV show or a mini-series, this is real life. Stars and Stripes Magazine reported that a man and his wife have been arrested in Kapolei Hawaii and charged with “conspiring against the government and identity theft.”

Their real names are Glenn Primrose and Gwynn Darle Morrison, and they were both born in 1955. 

Before moving to Hawaii, they both lived in Port Lavaca, Texas. They were married in 1980…just your average American couple from Texas.

But something happened.

Seven years after their wedding, they resurfaced with new identities. They took the names of two dead Texas children named Bobby Edward Fort and Julie Lyn Montague. 

Fort died in 1967 and Montague died at the age of three weeks in 1968. 

In 1988, after using these identities for about a year, they remarried as Fort and Montague. After building up their own history, in 1994, Primrose (now Fort) enlisted in the Coast Guard. He was 39 years old, but if Fort had lived, he would only have been 27 years old. 

It is hard to imagine how a 39 year old man could pass for a 27 year old man. But he not only enlisted, he served for 22 years and was ultimately stationed at Barber’s Point not far from their home in Kapolei. 

In 2016, Primrose was hired by a defense contractor and was employed there until his arrest last week. This guy had a “secret” clearance in both the Coast Guard and the defense contractor. 

The case against these spies has a picture of both of them wearing a Soviet KGB uniform. The defense counsel said this was a “joke.”

When their home was raided, officials found an invisible ink kit, documents with coded language, and maps showing military installations.  

The government has asked that they not receive bail.
