Late last month we wrote a bit about Joseph Cryer, the Chippendale SEAL who claimed, among other things that he’d been selected by members of SEAL Team Six while playing video games in an arcade to go directly to BUD/S training without the bothersome boot camp training. Then he was deployed to the coast of Libya, on the USS Caron from which he was launched like a murderous missile against Qaddafi and had a body count of 77 Libyans in just 102 hours of a killing frenzy. And then he was promoted to O-5.
Well, the folks at POW Network sent us his records last night. They seem quite a bit different than his Hollywood-style stories;
Nothing spectacular in his DD214 in the way of medals, other than the fact that he deployed with some damn fine units.
And, oh, look, he went to boot camp at Great Lakes Recruit Training Center. How pedestrian. I don’t see any BUD/S training, not even a stint at the Fort Benning Academy of Gravity – a pre-requisite for any special warfare training.
I know that prosecutors from Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of the Inspector General are regular readers here. According to POW Network, Cryer is receiving DVA benefits based on his wild-ass fairy tales so you guys might want to look into that.
Cryer has threatened to file lawsuits against POW Network, and I want to let Cryer know that I’m available for a piece of that action, too. Please, please, please sue me, douche nozzle.
