Stingerwooten and Tman sent us a link about a phony SEAL named Salhem Dreasden who was a friend of a parent and showed up at a school in Thousand Oaks, CA on a “Thank You, Soldiers” event that the students sponsored according to the Ventura County Star;
The name Salhem Dreasden, however, does not appear anywhere in databases of Navy service members that go back to at least the Vietnam War, said Katie Suich, a spokeswoman for the Navy Personnel Command in Tennessee. There aren’t any S. Dreasdens in the database, either, she said.
Federal law prohibits the unauthorized wearing of a U.S. military uniform.
Dreasden could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Why is it always the portly ones? He doesn’t look like he could carry a sack of groceries to his car let alone run across a beach with a sand bag on his shoulders. I hope someone punches his flabby face for raining on these kids’ sunny day and their important tribute to the troops.
Update: Thanks to some searching by MD we have more info about him. He seems to be active in the muscle car community. He has been claiming to be SEAL since 2005. He is also posing as a Officer in the photo as well.
This guy is white with freckles and glasses…but I know his name is Nate so I don’t think I saw the other guy.. Oh well, Here’s the rest of the story and pretty much the end of this deal cause I just talked to Salhems fiance on the phone during lunch. I got pulled over in his mustang and it was registered to this girl so I asked him about it and he of course told me it was one of his “investors”. Anyways, I talked to her.. the car is hers it is in her name she bought it and he TOOK it to run from the cops cause he stole a bunch of money from his g/f before her and is on the move. So he stole money from his gf and took his fiance’s car… kick ass dude. So, the deal is he is NOT a SEAL. He stole that car. He does NOT own a business. His real name is not Salhem Dreasden it is Dan. That car is stock because he doesn’t know SHIT about cars and its his woman’s. He’s been on the run but is headed back to Cali right now figuring things have died down
Oh and he is claiming service in Afghanistan.
