Military Phony Wall of Shame

Post here your favorite phonie military pictures and/or stories you've heard that you know couldn't have been true. Nothing better than busting military phonies.

These are mostly from POWnetwork.org

Cool fact about this thread: In "Views" in the war room, this thread has attained almost 15,000 views, 5th place out of all the threads here in the war room. Thanks, keep your eyes out.

I'll start:

July 2009

....... this kid was lucky to leave with all his teeth intact. From the get go, it was obvious this kid was not a Marine.


He claimed to be a PFC (wearing LCpl chevrons) and could not explain what a PFC chevron looked like and then couldn't explain the NCO stripe on his trousers. He had a collar emblem in the middle of his barracks cover and his belt was sticking out. No ribbons or badges, his trousers were way too long, not to mention he had on Sketcher boots instead of dress shoes and a civilian belt. We found this out after we demanded that he take off the blouse and cover.

Turns out he bought the uniform from a surplus store and his dad is a retired Navy Chief. Reno is a super-pro military area and this guy was soaking in the atta-boys. Lot of posers out there, watch out!

Know any recruiters in the San Diego and Reno areas, send them a warning to watch out for this turd.

Pictures are from 1999 timeframe. By the way, he had a GREAT story for why he had to take them off for an inspection .

He had been in the National Guard for 5 years.

He also has a RANGER tattoo on his (?) right upper arm.

Eric was also in the NJROTC at Bremerton High School in Bremerton, WA. He was telling people that he was a Captain.
Quote:
No record of him attending Ranger School.

As far as the picture goes if these were taken in 1999 then he is a total fake. A second CIB in 1999 for 2nd Bn would mean Grenada in 1983 when he was 4 years old and Panama in 1989 when he was 10. Even if it was the 82d it would be Desert Storm in 1991 when he was 12 and no other actions for a CIB from the 82d until the GWOT. No Ranger in a Ranger Bn would ever wear the Air Assault Badge before his jump wings ever! He is wearing a United Nations Service Medal, NATO Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal (W/ a few knots), Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Service Ribbon and those are the few that I could Identify....

Is it illegal to wear a uniform in public like that?

Mark Hicks

Quote:
Claims Special Forces Ranger Sniper, wearing a Bronze Star.
He was with a sheriff's dept. that put him right on the SWAT team, sniper and all. He still has that gun and badge.

07/2008 - Works for Polk County [Florida] as a correction officer.... STILL ..... even after being reported to internal affairs. Reportedly - according to the Sheriff's Department, they found no reason to bring disciplinary action or termination against Mr. Hicks.


Quote:
The Ranger Tab is not authorized on the blues, only the metal one is worn on the left breast pocket flap. The other thing that is not correct is the Headgear. Its an Officers hat with an Enlisted emblem. Unit citations are wrong oak leaf clusters are up side down. Brass is wrong branch is always on left he has the US. The German shooting badge is not correct.
Quote:
Right side Army superior unit award, valorous unit award, presidential unit citation.

Left side: infantry blue cord, silver cord, bronze star ribbon, Army commendation ribbon, Army achievement ribbon, good conduct Army ribbon, personal development ribbon, global war on terrorism service ribbon, global war on terrorism expeditionary ribbon, Afghanistan campaign ribbon, Iraq campaign ribbon, Army overseas ribbon, National defense ribbon, Army service ribbon.
Pins: Combat infantry badge, 2nd award; air assault badge, expert weapons badge for rifle, diver badge, 2nd class, Ranger tab.

That was the McClanahan one I posted up. I remember when his story started developing. What a douche.

It depends. If you're wearing medals you weren't awarded, it's against the Stolen Valor act. Obviously, there are trendy cats who go buy a used camo jacket from the surplus store, and that's not illegal. I'm not sure of the exact laws though
