    I was fortunate enough to get to work with one of the platoons from SEAL Team 5 in Iraq, and i can say this, those dudes do not advertise. They are also the most cocky, but least arrogant (if that makes sense) warriors i've ever met, so i would question anyone who boasts of his trident...Some of the nicest guy's i've ever met incidently.

    Met a funny phony yesterday, I was walking into Wal-mart in Selmer, Tn and I see this guy standing outside wearing an old Marine Corps field jacket with buck sgt stripes on the sleeves and when I get closer I see a major leaf on his collar, you guessed it, when I asked him if he was in the Corps he said that he was a sgt. major at Millington, Tn. I just smiled and said Semper Fi and left.

    By any chance you know HM1(FMF) Coates? Now HMC. He was IDC for Team 5.

    I never met any of their Corpsman (at least not that i know of). We either called them by their first names or by their rate (S.O. 3) or whatever there appropriate rates were. From what i remember the majority of the team was in Al Asad, we only worked with a small platoon. I'm pretty sure they were SDV-1 (post-redwing) guys, if i remember correctly. We mostly talked about beer, tried not to talk about work too much. haha, in the suck all you want to talk about is everything but the suck. Nice dudes...The CMC, (Can't remember his name, but he was pretty country for sure...) actually gave another Marine & I team coins. I'm pretty sure it's only because we made him laugh. We asked if we could trade chem lights, because ours were inferior to theirs.

    I'm glad you did not have to meet any of their HM's!

    We may very well have, they just rarely wear anything that distinguishes them as SEALs...but i'm pretty sure that there were quite a few dudes who went to the 18D course who weren't HM's...but i'm not sure man. Wish i could help you more...

    I have not ran into a phony seal but have met a fake recon Marine. What a hunk of cheese he was. They finally caught up to him. He had been working the west coast. I did some training with some Seals in 89 when I was in. It was a decent experience. In the end, just about all operators keep a low profile.

    - HEY! I resemble that remark!!!!!

    I have read this thread from the beginning and am sad to see that the resources for exposing posers seem to have dried up. I was attracted to this thread because there was a gent that I used to work with that professed to be a SEAL. He was hired to design the physical security for the building because he is a Plank Holder with SEAL Team 6 (naturally).

    Now - other than his hair being a tad long, I saw no reason to doubt this. Until, he started talking about it himself (I was always taught that if you claimed to be any kind of spec ops, you probably weren't), claimed to be "on call" and said his specialty was desigining security systems for U.S. Emabassies. At this point my Spidey sense was a-tingling and I just kinda nodded politly. But then I think the real last straw was when he said I could find him "on the web site." Now, I know as much about the SEALs as I know about nuclear reactors so I did not have the deep knowledge to try & vet this guy out myself.

    So, Marines, I ask - what do you all think? Was this civilian's BS detector operating properly? Or could the guy have been legit? BTW - all this transpired in 2000/01, long after Team 6 became USN Special Warfare Development Group.

    Honestly brother, sounds like a poser to me...like i said before, and you stated as well, operators don't advertise. The only person i know that has openly "advertised", and was really legit is Dan Marcinko (hope i spelled that right). He was one of the original 6 members...There may be others but he is the only one i can think of, and he's a renowned author and consultant.

    As far as this guy goes, i honestly would ask to see his copy of his DD214 (or if they call it something different in the Navy). Or you could possibly go to a Navy Recruiter and ask about avenues you could take to veryify his warrior history. If i wanted to i could write a resume claiming i was MARSOC, and war hero, doesn't make it true. This guy shouldn't be making bank because people think he's something he's not. Much less one of the warrior elite. It's incredible enough the struggles that SEALs go through to earn their trident, much less a spot in DEVGROUP...that shouldn't be trodden upon by a poser trying to make a quick buck and get undeserved thanks of gratitude from Americans he never provided freedom for. But then again, i have a couple beers in me and i may be crazy, but thats how i see it.
