Last year, Gateway Pundit sent us this photo of Hallis Mailen to see what we could dig up on him;
At the time, in the countless profiles of him on the internet, nothing indicated he’d ever been in the military – that’s how proud he was of his service. But, he stopped by last month to threaten us with a lawsuit because we had poked fun at his dirty feet, so Hondo sent away to the NPRC for his records. It turns out that he was in the Army back in the early 80s. And he was indeed stationed in Korea.
So we were curious about what could have caused “ptsd FROM THINGS I WITNESSED WHILE IN SOUTH KOREA”. He was a Decontamination Equipment Operator in Headquarters Company, 2d Engineer Battalion when there was an incident on Ingman Range in Korea in which four NCOs were murdered and another wounded when two privates went berserk on the firing line. (By the way, according to the testimony, one of the murderers was spouting jihadist BS when he was apprehended).
Apparently, the entire company was on the qualification range that day, but according to the CID investigation, because of the terrain on the firing line, no one witnessed the shootings except the gunmen and the victims. So, Hallis may have HEARD the shooting, but he didn’t “witness” it as he claims. So, basically, he gets a pension from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs because he experienced that which all of us have experienced – hearing rifles discharged while on a firing range.
So, because he threatened us with a lawsuit and for no other reason, here are his records;
I don’t know what brain surgeon designed a firing range where the tower couldn’t see two firing points, but according to the above-linked report it happened and Mailen didn’t “witness” anything. But it figures that the VA would give him a disability rating for hearing rifle shots on a firing range when there are so many stuck in the queue who really deserve disability.
And he probably should still wash his stinkin’ feet.
