    289 Navy seals served in Vietnam (total). I’ve met over 1000 of them.

    • Butch says:

      In 1968 all the USN had anywhere were UDT. I’m not sure when the “Seals” were invented but it sure wasn’t early Vietnam War it was way late.

  2. majmike says:

    I was almost a door gunner on the Space Shuttle.

  3. Yup….wonder how he’s doing now that he’s lost EVERYBODY? Least he still has the knives to make out with and impress with his sharpening skills. LOL

    I also love the “I spent a summer in Americorp/Peacecorp etc… once, I demand you treat me the same”.

    • Padawan says:

      I took a veteran friend out for breakfast this morning at a local diner. Three or so tables down from us was a snowflake who couldn’t have been anymore than 21 or 22 and wearing a “City Year” jacket argue with the waitress that he’s a “veteran” because he “served the city” in the City Year program.

    I told a guy who was claiming to be a navy SEAL..

    “dude, you were a hull tech. that’s an important job. stop making shit up and just be proud of what you were!”

  6. Critter says:

    There we were, and this is no shit…

    Scammy is a veteran – a veteran of scams

    Whatever became of the Short Bus?

    • Wirecutter says:

      It never made it to Idaho. He tried telling everybody it was ‘staged’ on the east side of the Continental Divide in case of a newsworthy event, but they’ve been happening everywhere and the Short Bus was nowhere to be seen.
      Evidently he also sold off all the shit that was donated for it like the radios. Not too long ago it was pointed out to me that he was soliciting for a set of radios without explaining what happened to the ones that already were donated which he so proudly documented on his blog.
      The guy’s got so much bullshit flowing he can’t keep track of it all. Either that or he thinks we’re that damned stupid.

      • Elmo says:

        “He only fucks his friends and he doesn’t have an enemy in the world.”

        I knew a guy like this once. He’s not with us anymore. He died of cancer in his sixties after having various pieces of his body removed trying to save him.

    Posers are life’s losers…………….Elevating themselves above all who served and those who paid the ultimate price.
    Infuriating, they deserve a serious ass kicking, but who wants to lay a hand on a lying, filthy, POS and be tried for assault?

  10. brighteyes says:

    No, technically you are a piece of shit.

  11. singlestack says:

    I did a hitch in the Air Force, enlisting 2 months after the fall of Saigon. Sometimes when people find that out they call me a hero and I hate that.
    I was a helicopter mechanic. My hitch was uneventful and I didn’t do anything special. Sure, I pledged my life like every other veteran but it takes more than a pledge and a uniform to make a hero.
    My father was a lifer in the Air Force. He served in Korea and Viet Nam. He was at Tan Son Nhut during the 68 Tet offensive.
    He earned 2 Bronze Stars with “V” device and a Silver Star during his career.
    I heard a guy call him a hero once and it pissed him off.
    He told the guy, “To be a hero you have to do something heroic. You have to go above and beyond the call of duty. I did my duty, nothing more.”
    Those words have always stuck with me. Lately the word hero has been cheapened until it no longer has any meaning, and that pisses me off.

    • Andrew says:

      You are not a hero. You are a Veteran. Which is just as good in my book. Especially the veterans who were the ‘behind-the-scenes’ guys, who often work horrible hours in crappy conditions with shit equipment in order to ensure the guys who need it get it. That is very important.

      Helos are scary things, always on the edge of not flying. I’ve known several helo techs, and they all down-talk how difficult their jobs were.

      Thank you for your service, and the service of your father.

      • 15Fixer says:

        Maybe that there is a real good indicator of who is bullshitting and who isn’t. The real-deal downplays it while the wanna-be tries inflating it. My dad also flew fighters in Korea, and F-4s in Viet Nam, stationed at Da Nang in ’68. More Air Medals and DFC’s than I counld count, but he never, ever, talked about any of it.

    • Westcoastdeplorable says:

      You’re absolutely right. And so-called “hero first responders” may BE heroes once they get there, but at best they’re “second responders”. Which is why we need more people “on the street, packin’ heat.” I can think of 12 souls in Thousand Oaks who might agree.

    • bottlestop says:

      Singlestack, I feel the same way. My draft lottery number was 18, I knew i was going somewhere. So, I joined the Naval Air Reserves. As it would happen I received my draft notice before I was sworn into the Navy. As a result I had to do 3 years active duty in the reserves, or go in the Army. My Navy career was 3 years at NAS Dallas in a F-8 squadron. It was like a regular job, I lived off base and worked Wednesday to Sunday. A few times a year we deployed so the reservists could get their 2 weeks. (garden spots like Yuma AZ and Fallon NV) I was not a hero, just was doing my time. On the plus side, the Navy introduced me to electronics and I found I had a knack for it. I went from a C minus high school grad to top of my class in computer repair – and long career working with computers.

    • james says:

      I guess your dad could say whatever he wanted to say, but two bronze with V and a silver star is something.

  12. Tsgt Joe says:

    I spent 12 years in the AF ‘68 to ‘80 I was a welder and tin knocker, ran a civil engineering sheet metal shop. The only time I heard guns fired in anger was in Detroit. So I’m proud to be a veteran but wouldnt want to be confused with a soldier who has put it on the line. Well come to think of it, can you count a couple of bar brawls in the philippinnes as combat duty?

    • Wirecutter says:

      Same thing with me, Sarge. When I was a military dependent you had soldiers and you had Vets. Vets were the ones that actually saw combat. Soldiers were peacetime troops or REMFs. Up until a very few years ago I refused to be identified as a Vet.

  13. brighteyes says:

    To Singlestack. I was 3/1 India USMC. 0351. I’m 100% disabled. Sorry, but you are a hero in my eyes. Ya showed up and served. Anything could have happened to you and that is all that matters to me. Thank you for your service and loving the country I love.

  14. Tsquared says:

    I did 21 years in the Air Force. I have 3 campaign ribbons, I was commo so I was in the rear with the gear. Like Singlestack my time was uneventful even though I went to the sandbox twice and Panama. I didn’t do anything special except keep the comm lines up.

    • JeremyR says:

      My Drill Sergeant at Ft Lost-in-the-woods had been commo. He got shot off a pole but was lucky enough to survive. saw the scars on his back and front. wonder he survived.

  15. JeremyR says:

    To all you who “just showed up” , I want to say thank you. Didn’t do much? Yes you did. You signed on the line and if things had gone bad some where while you were having fun like I was, you’d have answered the call. For every man ass in the grass, it takes ten REMFs to keep him supplied and fed. The tip of the spear does the damage, but the shaft is no less important.
    Instead of comparing yourself to Audie Murphy or Anthony Herbert, contrast yourself with worthless Willie who would still be hiding in Canada if Jimmah Carter had not pardon those cowards.
    You served with Honor and your discharge reflects that.
    Again, Thank You.

  16. Roy says:

    I don’t know if I am the only one, but whenever someone who never served says to me: “Thank you for your service.”, I reply out loud with: “Thank You.”, while inside, I am thinking “Where were you in 1972?”

    I served. I did my duty for 7 years in the submarine service. I am a veteran but not a hero.

    • 15Fixer says:

      If someone older than me, or someone worthy of respect (earned, not entitled) thanks me for my service, I reply with “It was an honor to serve you.” Kids…. smile and say nothing.

  17. loaded4bear says:

    Like many here, I did my time in between all the exciting stuff. As an Infantry officer, I got to go to cool schools and got all the high speed badges. But I tell everyone that I was merely a place marker in time. Like WC, it’s just been recently that I would fess up to being a Veteran.

  18. John maddock says:

    I was in from Jan 80 to Feb 90 worked on helicopter armament cobras and Apache systems thats all no special forces or delta operations. But I have meet some real jewels that would have you believe they were the shit and they were special forces seal team pj all in one then asked them what unit they with the story then gets blurred.
