Occasionally on the weekends I go out and shoot some people up with paintball guns, it’s a stress reliever. There’s this young guy that occasionally comes up from Miami to play with our group (I’m in Orlando) and he starts telling us these stories about his team captain who’s a Navy SEAL, etc.
Anywho, most of these stories are the same. They make outrageous claims, etc. I was wondering if maybe you guys could check him out. He claims to have served 10+ years in the SEALS “but due to an injury now only plays paintball” and is the captain of a Miami based paintball team called T.A.G. (Tactical Assault Group). He’s ripping off IP from another company in the paintball industry and selling it as his invention, I’ve also notified them as well so they’re at least aware. Something is setting off my BS meter like crazy with this guy. From his claims, to his wearing of woodland MARPAT with Navy tape full color flag and Army Special Forces longtab, to his facebook profile photos of the Trident and MOH. The guy screams poser and I’d love to see him exposed if he’s not legit.
So, I checked the dude out with POW Network and CPT Bailey. CPT Bailey says “Jonn, this guy is phony as snake’s milk.” Mary says that he has absolutely no military service. You’ll notice in the picture above, there’s a Special Forces tab peaking out from behind all of that garbage he’s wearing.
See that blue and yellow patch he’s wearing? Here it is in another photo;
Looks like it says Naval Special Warfare to me. His Facebook profile says he’s retired from the Navy, but there are no records of him.
