This is what I wrote about him earlier this year and his phony story;
In fact he was recruited from a video arcade and sent straight to BUD/S without the burden of boot camp. So there’s a lesson for all of you youngsters out there – spend more time in video arcades and the SEALs may pick you out of the the thousands of other glassy-eyed teens and send you straight to highly technical and physically demanding training based on nothing more than your Donkey Kong score.
Apparently, he was in the Gulf of Sidra in 1986 aboard the USS Caron during a time that the Caron had no SEALs onboard, according to witnesses. Then he secretly (how else) deployed into Libya and killed 77 Libyans in 102 sleepless hours. I know, how can you sleep when there are so many Libyans to kill and such little time. But those bloody hours gave him PTSD for which he gets 100% disability rating from the DVA.
So he called me yesterday to tell me that he’s not the enemy, which of course, he is. The he tried to tell me that the only thing he regrets about telling that story about Libya is that he revealed the story. Cryer claimed that the story is true. Sure he never went to BUD/S, never was a SEAL, but they chose him to help them kill scads of Libyans because of his mad Donkey Kong skillz.
Of course, like every other phony or their family members who come here, Cryer threatened us with a lawsuit. The folks at POW Network wrote last night that he has threatened them recently, too;
Mr. & Mrs. Shantag-How are you? Hope all is well in Missouri.
I just glanced on the internet and I viewed that you and your organization has not removed libel slanderous comments regarding myself. I am very disappointed honestly. Are you waiting for some sort of donation or something of that nature?
I guess the question of the day is: is the POW Network affiliated with the Federal Government in a law enforcement capacity? Or better yet do you represent the VA, Secretary of the Navy or the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO)?
I called the Disabled American Veterans (from your website) and they said they were not affiliated with POW Network in any capacity.
I will be in VA Beach/Norfolk/Chesapeake in mid January seeing friends from the Navy and I mentioned to Donald Shipley (by email) that I would be in town and that we will meet. I would hope this is not a hostile encounter but whatever happens – happens.
Always remember that BAD PRESS is better then NO PRESS. Your attacks on my character have no effect whatsoever because I don’t care. In all actuality it is very immature.
Where do we go from here? I know it will not happen but I would hope that you would discontinue the the slanderous attacks.
I am left with no other choice but to sue you personally and your organization for (internet) Libel Slander. If any of your cohorts make reference to attacking me on a physical level again then they will be included in the law suit as well.
Your confident, Don Shipley and his wife w/ Extreme SEAL Experience will be handled in a different law suit. What you guys are doing is illegal and I will show you in the Court of Law. Respectfully,Joseph B. Cryer
Yeah, I’m scared shitless. Cryer is a sociopath who thinks he can convince people that his tale is true, despite the countless impossibilities in his story. When I called bullshit on his story over the phone yesterday, he took on his secret squirrel persona and said he couldn’t talk about it. But he can put it on his Facebook page.
As Susan said yesterday, any lawyer who examines the facts would be a fool to take this case to court. And I doubt that Cryer has the wherewithal to pay a lawyer, anyway.
So Cryer threatened to use bodily harm to make me remove the post. I sent him a map to my house (about 2 hours from his) and his desire to force me to shut up dampened somewhat. So any of the rest of you who want to team up with Cryer and shut this blog down, I’m sure he’ll be receptive, and that’s fine with me. If I’m going to have to break out a can of whoopass, I might as well use it on two or three other people, too. I’m no real badass, I’m just tired of all of you fucks who threaten me and don’t follow through.
