This account was created in March 2018. A date for the military parade was announced on March 9th.

A month ago, Craig was up to 15K followers. That's extremely unusual for a 6 month old account that doesn't belong to a celebrity or public figure. 1/ #scammers #MondayMotivation
Almost immediately, the account started tweeting about the #1millionveteransmarch, using graphics with military imagery, constantly asking people to follow and retweet to get him to 100K followers so he would "qualify for funding". (Note the Buy Me a Coffee link).
A GoFundMe was set up for the march for donations. Craig himself promoted it by tweeting the link on June 15th.

He later said a volunteer set up the GoFundMe in her own name without his knowledge (July 11th), & shared a screenshot of that account showing that she blocked him.

I'm not a veteran. I haven't served. But if I were, and wanted to send a message that the tools, equipment and personnel that defended my life and country aren't toys to be paraded around for a KIA/POW-mocking toddler's entertainment, here's how I'd do it. #1MillionVeteransMarch
I wouldn't look for cash, I wouldn't look for Twitter verification, and I wouldn't look for sponsorship. I'd look long and hard for a small number of well-known and well-respected veterans with name recognition who happened to share my view. Sign them on. #1MillionVeteransMarch
I'd then crowdsource as many personal statements as possible, from the people who have used the equipment that Donald wants to parade around in November for his own entertainment. From the people who stood by those personnel in battle. When, where and how. #1MillionVeteransMarch
