Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla; female pretender pilot

| November 5, 2012

Meet Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla who is currently a major in the Civil Air Patrol in Virginia and assigned to HQ, VA Wing as Director of Aerospace Education. She got that job because she represented herself as combat-wounded Army Aviation Captain, and a UH-60 Blackhawk pilot. Of course, she’s here on TAH, so you already know that none of that is true.

She was a PFC Air Traffic Controller for less than two years;

I don’t know how she got a Good Conduct Medal with less than 3 years service, but there it is.

She claims that she earned a Purple Heart when her Blackhawk was shot down in Iraq and, of course, because of that incident she claims she suffers from TBI and PTS. but, as her records show, she’s never been to Iraq;

She also claims that she had enlisted time before she went to OCS. So, I thought I’d give her time to prove that to her unit who has confronted her with this information, in case the NPRC’s records were deficient. But I’ve just heard that she’s resigning from CAP “because of all of the politics” which means there won’t be any proof forthcoming. So mainly, this post is to prevent her from pulling the same scam in another state when it hits the search engines.

    I just went into the SMS database. She went through Basic at Ft. Leonard Wood in June of 2000. She did go to Ft. Rucker in August of 2000, where she obtained the 15Q MOS (ATC). She arrived in Germany in February of 2001. She was showing as having a projected ETS in 2008, which she obviously never reached. The system shows that she never advanced beyond PFC and is coded as LD, which is an involuntary discharge for FL= physical disability-with severance pay (23 APR 2002). Of interest…she does have some smarts. She had a GT score of 109, but that’s probably because she was 31 at the time. Without being able to get into a more restricted database, can’t tell anything else. She DID NOT go to Iraq.

    402, That’s an advertisement bot. They want you to click on their blue name and sell you something. They routinely find long dead threads and say something completely out of touch with the thread. Just ignore them.

    AtDrum@404, you wrote “They routinely find long dead threads and say something completely out of touch with the thread.” Please stick to the topic of the thread. We are discussing Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla here, not Paul K. Wickre.

    We know that Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla likes to get freaky, and we know that Paul K. Wickre likes to get real freaky. They both currently reside in the NCR. What do you see, TAH board members, should we set these two (literally) crazy kids up on a date?

    Fixed comment 402 to be a bit more accurate.

  8. I knew this person and always had a suspicion that her story
    was a lie. When i first met her she was a Capt in the CAP drilling on Tuesday nights at tbr Armory
    Was assigned to in northern VA. We struck up a friendship
    and the more i inquired into her past the more things started not to
    Add up. When i asked i got excuse after excuse. It is a shame that this person
    Was ever allowed to work with children and I worry for her child
    . Sad thing is…………I almost fell for her romantically
    What she did was wrong but it is obvious she needs help
    I hope she finds it and makes amends to those of us who cared.

    I personally know Chelle. I was in the civil air patrol squadron she was in. She told all of us her war stories, and we ate it all up. She was a hero in our eyes. She also told us a story that i don’t see you have, about how her son was killed during the first Ft Hood shooting. I have a picture on my facebook page of her and I laying a wreath down at a fallen army soldiers grave during a wreath’s across america ceremony. I thought it was such an honor at the time. But now i know it was all a lie.
