When I reached Densmore by phone, he refused to answer any questions or sit down for an interview. So, I tracked him to his Menlo Park home.
Dan: “Ike, I need to talk to you about your Navy SEAL background.”
Ike: “Dan, I’m on my way to the VA.”
Dan: “Is that true that you’re a Navy SEAL? You’re going to the VA right now?”
Ike: “I am.”
Dan: “Really? Were you ever in the military?”
I followed Densmore to the Palo Alto Department of Veterans Affairs, where he’s receiving services — I couldn’t confirm what kind of services because of privacy laws, and Densmore wouldn’t say.
My Freedom of Information Act request to the “National Personnel Records Center” in St. Louis confirms Densmore did serve in the military. He’s no Navy SEAL — he never even served in the Navy, but in the Army.
I love it when the media discovers Stolen Valor, good job, Dan. We’ve been in contact with him and he seems to have his heart in the right place. I doubt anyone will be able to pull the wool over his eyes.
