MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota National Guard says it has no record of the combat injuries claimed by a man who sang on ''America's Got Talent.''
 
Timothy Michael Poe appeared on the NBC show Monday. He told the judges he spent 14 years in the military, and suffered a broken back and brain injury in a grenade blast in Afghanistan in 2009.
 
Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Kevin Olson said Tuesday that records don't indicate Poe suffered those injuries. Olson noted Poe wasn't given a Purple Heart, which is awarded to those injured in combat.
 
Records show Poe served with the Guard from December 2002 through May 2011. He was in Kosovo for part of 2007 and 2008, and in Afghanistan for about a month in 2009.
 
Neither Poe not NBC returned phone messages.
