Nobody at my reunion had better try that stuff. One of my old girlfriends is now married to an Admiral, and a guy with the same last name as me was killed in Viet Nam.

My first greenlight involved a local politician who ran on a platform of being a former Green Beret. A local VFW guy thought that something didn't sound right, and did a little digging. Eventually it came out that he was a phone operator assigned to a Green Beret unit. It also came out that he lied to the V.A. about his service to get increased benefits. The former is embarrassing and damaged his political career; the latter is a federal offense.

Usually, people that brag about their military heroism are posing impostors.

Wow, he couldn't even google "ribbon precedence" before putting that together? Here's a hint: Your Purple Heart shouldn't be on the 3rd row of your ribbon stack.

In fact, you can get the ribbons in a pre-made rack, in the right order, delivered to your doorstep.. you don't even have to buy the individual ones and do it yourself.
what a dummy.

Maybe one day I'll make my own shadow box, and put the Antarctic Service Medal in it.. see if anyone notices.

Off the top of my head, I think he's actually got it right. A Purple Heart should be right behind a Bronze Star. He's got a Navy Cross, Legion of Merit, Navy & Marine Corps Medal and Bronze Star in front of it. I'm surprised he didn't throw a Silver Star in there as well.

What I don't get, is that he's a Lieutenant Colonel in the first photo, and a Master Gunnery Sergeant in the next.
 
2009-11-11 12:37:24 PM
Yeah, he actually does have it right. Wow. 7 years in and I've never seen someone have that many different medals senior to it. I stand corrected.

2009-11-11 12:43:22 PM
Oh, wow. I just noticed the Presidential Service Badge on his right (our left) breast and a Secretary of Defense Badge on his left breast.

Jesus. I'm surprised he didn't put in some Gold Jump Wings and a Scuba Bubble on there as well.

As much as mocking our resident core idiot amuses me, I do have to say that his outing as a fraud is hardly the most notable on Fark. I still think Flynavy's complete destruction at the hands of Zap Branigan (I think that was his name) is the all-time most spectacular faker outing. There was also some guy who had a picture of himself that people in the thread discovered was a polish commando or something. Don't remember the specifics on that one.

After the election, I de-Farky'd most of the asshats I had marked as troll-erific or otherwise insane. His Farky ("Not a Marine. Asshole.") was the only one I left untouched.

You can't go much lower than impersonating military.

TCS actually had the nerve to show his face in the Marine Corps's birthday thread yesterday.

The guy you're thinking of was something like LAV270_Hunter. The photo he posted is the stock photo on Wikipedia for a GROM operator, which is the Polish Special Forces.

He claimed his buddy was "confused" and sent him the wrong photo, since he has a "similar" photo that's TOTALLY REAL, MAN! that's REALLY him, despite the fact that the guys in the photo are geared out in distinctively non-U.S. gear.

How about this for his punishment:

He gets to go to camp in South Carolina, say Parris Island, for a few weeks, say 13, where he will get very close to his DI.

Next, he goes on an all-expense paid trip to the Middle East courtesy of the United States, where he will spend 15 months mingling with the locals in Afghanistan. Rinse. Repeat.

Why would you punish actual Marines with a shiatbag like that? He'd just get Pvt. Pyle'd wind up on LOS, and kill himself, or others.

Now, if you want to talk about attaching him to a JDAM as an experiment in human guided munitions, sure!

Ok, so I've told this story before, but it's my fav:

A few months ago, I was at my local with a table full of girls. Some douche comes over and starts his rap on us. I missed the first part of it, but eventually he starts talking about his "military service".

It seems that this guy enlisted in the Army, and he was "so good at boot camp" that all the mean yelling guys said he was the "best soldier they had ever seen"- in boot camp mind you, where I'm pretty sure they spend the entire time telling you they're gonna fark your mom. The clincher was when he said he was "so good" the army assigned him to the Marine Corp.

Now, here's where the fail comes in: 1) he was talking to a table filled with four lesbians and two girls with live in boyfriends, both of whom were there. 2) REAL Marines and soldiers heard that shiat, including a messed up vietnam vet who almost ripped his arms off.

I underlined the disappointing part of that story. If it weren't for that word, that would be the best story I ever read on FARK. Well, there was that one thread about that lady and her son, but that's another story.

True, but this guy doesn't need another run in with the police. He's had a tough couple of decades. :(

It's hilarious, as it makes absolutely no goddamned sense. The Army and Marines have a fierce rivalry, and the whole crux of that story is the Army acknowledging the Marines are better than them. Why wouldn't they send one of their top guys to the 75th Ranger Regiment, or Army Special Forces?

When I graduated Basic, the top graduate got an extra stripe, which still leaves you pretty far down on the totem pole. That was it.

A guy on another board which also had this link was wondering if he has the order right as well. Another dude chimed in with, "How the hell can you tell? He's got every damn medal on there except the one Princess Leia hung around Chewie's neck."

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: Anyone have the links to those threads? The one with this "TMS" guy and the other one?

The original "Mareen Core Soldier" thread from way back when is here: http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=3129410.

The one he poked his head in yesterday (just to further piss on the honor of any of the actual Marines here on fark, I guess, or maybe he thought people forgot about his chicanery) is here: http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=4759277.

As you can see from the second link, I missed it as well. But I was thoroughly entertained, especially by the motto "Semper Fib".
