(Thanks to the REAL Marines who are part of the F’n Boot Facebook group for the H/T)
This clown has been going around various Marine Corps message boards and FB groups claiming to be a Recon Marine and a MARSOC operator. There is no record of him on MOL. Here is a picture he has posted in several groups :
First of all he is wearing Warrant Officer One rank on the collar of what appears to be a Gortex jacket. Every Marine who has worn Gortex knows there is a flap towards the center of the jacket where you put your rank. Next, he is wearing a SCUBA bubble and a Combat Parachutist Badge on Gortex which you don’t do. Then there is some kind of patch on both his left and right breast. The only type of patches Marines wear today are name patches for flight suits and FROG gear. Marines have not worn unit patches on their uniforms since the end of WW2.
Here is another pic of him wearing the same outfit:
Here is a link to an album of pics he has posted on some Marine Corps Facebook groups. Most of the pics that he has are from MARSOC press releases or are stolen from other Marines’ photo albums. I am pretty sure those pictures that he has of the squad bay are from Major Jason Grose’s blog. He has also started his own blog, but he hasn’t made any posts yet. Looks like TAH has some competition! Here is the link to his Facebook page, which states that he is from Detroit. If you frequent any Marine Corps forums or internet groups and you see this clown, make sure to call him out. If any of you who live in Michigan run into this guy at any veterans events, well… use your discretion.
Finally, doesn’t his name just scream “gay porn”?
