Alright you know what. Just forget I posted that ASVAB SEAL score thing. It was dumb.

To be honest with all of you, the guys that I've known in my life from all branches of service who were "in the ****" never talk about it. Phonies are easy to spot because they never shut up. But when you take it to the extreme of never having served at all, that's when I say "make 'em pay and send them away". I never fired a shot in anger, nor was I ever deployed. That doesn't make me a lesser Marine.

I can go with that but the solution to phonies seems to me to be a simpler if uncle sugar and the various vet organizations really wanted to do something about it:
I just got my wallet out, in it I've got a plastic card, on it are the logo and words Department of Veterans Affairs, a bar code, a picture of the Flag and me below my shot it says service connected and my name. If they really want to stop the posers why not issue a card that says where and when you,ve been, what operations you participated in and what you got. It would be as simple as "heres mine, where's yours" if you don't have one shut up.

The posers run the gamut from the guy who stands in front of the mirror to the guy scamming the VA to the ones who are knocking down 6 and possibly 7 figure salary's because of their deceit. Not just SEAL Posers but all Military Posers cause untold damage both monetarily and every way imaginable. Steve Robinson (SEAL) is a good man, a Patriot and a friend of mine. You can google him and check out the information he has about Navy SEAL Imposter's. It's pretty much the same for any impostor though.
The only way to truly bust the posers is eternal vigilance. As Military professionals we give great respect to those men that we know have earned it. But when our BS Flags start to hit the ground we need to ask the hard questions...because it takes all of us policing the squad bay to keep it clean... if you know what I mean. The more knowledgeable all of us are the better we are able to detect Truth & to detect Lies.

I have a question.
I work with a guy who wears a Navy Diver badge, and an EOD Badge. He says that he was a medic in the Navy. I asked him if he was with the FMF and he said, "not exactly."
His claim is that he did "spec. ops." with the UDT/SEALS/Recon during Vietnam. He says that he can honestly say he never set foot in South Vietnam.
His claim is that his team was flown from Gitmo to North Vietnam for missions and then flown back to Gitmo for debriefing.
I don't believe him but I want to know for sure before I say something and put my foot in my mouth.
Is there any remote possibility this could be true?
