Our buddy, Don Shipley, sends us this link to a news organization which does their homework on a supposed Navy SEAL, who happens to be a conservative radio personality in Jacksonville, FL. Apparently, this Sam Samford has been making claims to being a SEAL on his radio program, so the local news decided to check his creds;
An Action News viewer led us to radio clips of Samford’s show. He was asked if he was a Navy Seal and replied “yes.” He was also asked by a caller if he saw “action” while on military duty.
“Grenada was the first time,” Samford said on his show. “Iran, when our planes crashed, first time there,” he said.
The trouble is, Samford is not a Navy Seal and never was.
Action News has the documents to prove it. We filed Freedom of Information Act requests with the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO. They sent us documents that prove Samford did enter the Navy Reserves in 1978.
But that’s where the truth about Samford’s military career ends. Inside those same papers, we found an interesting piece of information. The papers say Samford’s naval career started on November 22, 1978 and ended on December 11, 1978.
He was in the Navy for just 19 days.
Of course, still clinging to the lies, he tells everyone that his records are classified. I wish someone would pay me a nickel for every time we hear that.
“We’re out there fighting for our country and you’re trying to attack me personally. Get a friggin’ life,” said Samford during his radio show.
I BLASTED this clown a few weeks ago. He does some online radio gig and claims to be a SEAL… He has been outed as a phony but must still be clinging. It’s bad enough that he’s claiming to be a SEAL, but he’s so damn homely that he even gives phony SEALs a bad rap…
