Remember this dirtbag? (Ryan Brashears)

| December 17, 2012

Ryan Brashears in Marine uniform 1

When last we saw Ryan Brashears, he was stealing from folks while claiming to be a WWP solicitor.

Officers contacted the solicitor, identified as Ryan L. Brashears, 18, in the area after the caller to police provided a description.

Police determined Brashears was not affiliated with the Wounded Warriors Project and had been claiming to be a wounded U.S. Marine and combat veteran, Chambers said.

Now, that was back in June. Since then, he had another arrest

Arrested On: 09/04/2012
Booking ID: 1256420
•0163.160 ASSAULT 4 / ASSAULT 4TH DEG – 1

So, what to do after you’ve been arrested?* I know, fake an enlistment! Notice the date of the arrest, and this facebook update from his page:

*Check that, looks like he faked his enlistment BEFORE his arrest.


But, keeping track of all this stuff is tough, and, we all know that the Marines and Army Airborne are the same thing, so his job posting on his facebook page makes total sense.


So, here’s his Facebook page if you want to have fun.

[Deleted one portion that appears not to be germane.] I wonder where Ryan is now? No posting since he enlisted in the US Army Rangers Marine Corps. I guess that Ft Paris Benning Island is some tough shit.

    and the mentally challenged one…lol..that was funny. i liked that one;) really, i did:)

  2. Dave says:

    Yup, “victim” is either 8 years old or retarded.

  3. victim says:

    ok boys, i gotta go for now. gotta go get my baby boy from school;) this has been so fun though. ill catch ya all later.

  4. victim says: area riot!! gotta love a bully;) not!!! go get a job

  5. JAGC says:

    The only “victim” here is the English language… Well that and the wounded warriors who had funds stolen.

  6. Hack Stone says:

    Adirondack Patriot@30, I made a #2 in the porta-shitter in Saudi during Desert Shield.

  7. Nik says:


    Or both.

  8. Hondo says:

    “victim” is indeed posting from SE Oregon, so it could be legit.

    Oh, and “victim”? “Separated” is not the same as “divorced”. If you were boinking Brashears while still legally married to someone else – yes, that qualifies as “having an affair”, separated or not.

    You might want to think twice about trying to give others advice on morality, “lady”.

  9. melle1228 says:

    @45 Seperated means that you were still married. And sweetie that means you had an affair in my book. Furthermore, the fact that you’re a woman and willingly tag yourself as a victim makes me ill.

  10. Dave says:

    Calling others bullies while defending the piece of feces that beat you, a psychologist would have their hands full with you.

  11. I left the seedier admissions of hers out from here, thinking more of the errors of Brashear than of her. She is the one that opened the can of worms on herself. As she has said- she has a 15 year old child. She had an affair with an 18 year old boy,(she said he wasn’t matured yet), h’mmmm. I am hearing Jerry Lee Lewis singing “Middle Aged Crazy” here.
    About some photos of her n Brashears, she offered:
    “my husband and i were separated and we are back together and we dont need reminders plz”

  12. Nik says:

    Wait…old enough for a 15 year old kid and she’s banging a 18 year old…while still married? That’s heading into gross category.

    Even if she had her kid really young, say 15, that puts her at 30+.

    And yes, I’d say the same thing if the genders were reversed.

  13. melle1228 says:

    @62 Be nice, she is a “victim.” Didn’t you see her moniker?


  14. Dave says:

    Oh man, this is a Jerry Springer episode waiting to happen……

  15. Dave says:


    The only victims I see in this story are her husband and kids.

  16. Nik says:


    Oh, and pure as the driven snow, I’m sure.

    She asked the question about what we were doing at 18 and 19 years old. I was enlisted in the Corps for 21 of those 24 months. Turned 18 in March, in MCRD San Diego in June.

  17. Scotty says:

    Has anyone filed a sf-180 form on him yet TSO ?

  18. Scotty says:

    WOW, Never mind about the sf-180 .. I just took a glance at this ass-clowns F/B profile. A stint in Behavioral Health is what he needs. Talk about an imagination. Ryan Brashears

    He should be graduating boot camp any day now…

  19. USMCE8Ret says:

    I’m all for mentoring and helping people, but I can’t be convinced that Brashears knew what he was doing was wrong in the past. It all comes down to being held accountable for one’s actions. If Brashears is behind bars, maybe he’ll learn a tough (but necessary) lesson there. Experience is an unforgiving teacher, and no matter how much “help or advice” he gets by people who want to help him and see him change, it’s ultimately HIS choice to step in the right direction.

  20. Hack Stone says:

    Going into the miltary with a GED? Highly unlikely. Haven’t been on recruiting duty in 25 years, but I don’t this clown getting in with a GED, even with the repeal of DADT.

  21. USMCE8Ret says:

    @70 – During my recruiting stint 6 years ago, I were taught the TIER system of prospective applicants.

    In a nut shell, TEIR I were your H/S graduates (or higher), who had little or no criminal background, and were mostly preferred for enlistment for obvious reasons. TEIR II applicants were the ones that usually required a waiver of some sort, and had to be approved at the RS C.O. level, but had to have (if I recall correctly) a H/S diploma at a minimum. TEIR III applicants were the bottom rung applicants, rather, those who had a GED or had at least finished 12th grade (drop outs counted, but there was lots of paperwork involved, so I was told), required a waiver for education requirements (or illegal activity), etc ad infinitum. TEIR III folks were not the center of focus, and usually those recruiters who struggled would drop TEIR III papers just to make the monthly quota – with hopes the applicant wouldn’t “attrit” by washing out of recruit training. Perhaps the standards have changed by now, but that was my experience.

    And no, I never dropped a TEIR III applicant to make my numbers for the month, EVER.

  22. USMCE8Ret says:

    It’s TIER, not TEIR… (long day).

  23. UpNorth says:

    @#62, Nik, she wasn’t having an affair, with that age disparity, it’s called baby-sitting.

  24. Nik says:


    Good point.

  25. UpNorth says:

    And, she was just changing his diaper.

  26. Hack Stone says:

    He was just using her because she was old enough to buy cigarettes for him. And she was allowed to drive after midnight.

  27. Hack Stone says:

    USMCE8Ret@71, when I was first recruiting, I had a walk in with about four different things that would require waivers, to include criminal activity, dependants, non-high school grad, etc…. I was under pressure for that first contract, so despite my better judgment, I gave him that mini-ASVAB test (the one with Mick Jagger), which scored about 25 points. Showed I him the door. As he was walking out, he said the standard “I made mistakes, trying to change my life, blah, blah, blah…..” A week later, I saw his photo on the front page of the Daily Planet. Him and some other numb nuts broke out of the county jail. After pulling off the great escape, instead of blowing town, they got drunk and passed out on some ladies lawn. BTW, at the end of the interview is when I discovered that the highest education he reached was fifth grade.

  28. USMCE8Ret says:

    @77 – Yeah, those walk in’s are the ones that haunt the loudest, which is precisely why we steered away from them. The younger, eager and less experienced recruiters (the ones who thought they could save the world, but sometimes compromised their recruiting ethics) usually got burned when they found our their applicant washed out of MCRD the first or second week – and had to make up their numbers the following quarter.

  29. Nik says:

    I didn’t know you guys got burned on the wash-outs.

  30. Hack Stone says:

    Better to roll a donut than to have some kid not ship because he got sand in his vagina. Dumbass kids popping on a piss test morning they ship, then, if a waiver is granted, they lose that hi-speed/low-drag MOS because now they can’t get a clearance. All you hear is how the recruiter f’ed him, not about his dirty urine, the minor in possession, and not actually graduating high school. You put some kid with a waiver in, and he’ll probably end up causing an international incident. Most of the fuck-ups in Okinawa were end of the month/gotta make mission contracts. Then your buddy in the fleet has to put up with your trash. it’s not worth it.

  31. extremely disgusted says:

    hoe dare any of you dirty pigs label me or talk about my family! you all should be ashamed of yourselves! that is slander to insinuate ive had an affair!!!!! i was abused by ryan and i did not have sex with Mr. brashears and how dare any of you say i did!!! you are all women hating dirty old men who cant get a women of their own to have sex with so u have to talk about other peoples sex lives or in this case non existing sex lives!!!!!!!!! leave me the hell alone and get a life yer dirty old pigs! dont you ever talk about my children or husband agian!!!!!

  32. pete says:

    good Gawd!! now i know where The Duffle Blog gets all their material from! lolol

  33. Nik says:

    “but dont u ever talk about my family.”

    Or what?

  34. melle1228 says:

    @81 Apparently your reading comprehension is as good as your spelling. Did you miss the fact that not all of us are “old men?” Some of us are (gasp) women. And just for the record, I post on here all the time, and am quite vocal about my opinions. The guys on here take it all in stride. No one is threatened because you are a women.. Glad to see you changed from being a “victim” to being “extremely disgusted.”

  35. extremely disgusted says:

    whatever you all misspell words too! all of you are just a bunch of cyber bullies! just for the record ryan did not kidnap me i went with him because i wanted too and he and i are married so have a field day with that one. that otta keep u all busy for a while. we all know you “intellegent” hillbillies will have so much to say about that one. so there you go, begin your harrassment. i can take it and if you cant tell i actually enjoy this banter with you hillbillies;) i love ryan leigh brashears thats right i love him!

  36. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    I’m sorry. Does somebody here give a crap about you? Keep putting yourself on public display as an object of ridicule. And for Christmas, ask someone to give you some pride. You can use it.

  37. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    Oh, and clean up that shithole you are living in. The place is a mess.

  38. Hondo says:

    melle1228: I think you’re correct. She obviously missed the “if” in my comment that read “if you were boinking Brashears. . . . ” above.

    And I also think her new screen name is quite apropos. I indeed get “extremely disgusted” when reading about this whole sordid, tawdry mess.

  39. Hack Stone says:

    Sock puppet alert on comments 81 and 85. Judging by the comments and grammar initially posted by “victim”, I assumed that she was maybe 19 or 20 years old. If indeed victim/extremely disgusted is the woman that he assaulted and had an affair with (I suspect that it is just a poser), it doesn’t leave a positive impression on her intelligence, let alone her moral compass.

  40. Hondo says:

    extremely disgusted: to answer your question above – at 18 and 19 I was indeed a young guy looking to get laid. But I wasn’t interested in ladies literally old enough to be my mom who had kids old enough to be my brother.

  41. Nik says:

    Wait, WTF?

    Four quotes. Very different sentiments expressed in posts 33, 45, 81 and 85.

    “i love ryan leigh brashears thats right i love him!”

    “just for the record ryan did not kidnap me i went with him because i wanted too and he and i are married”

    “i was abused by ryan and i did not have sex with Mr. brashears”

    “My husband is a retired marine”

    “i was victumized by ryan on more then one occasion and i have given forgiveness. yes my husband is a marine”

    I call bullshit.

  42. Hack Stone says:

    Nik@91, further proof that meth is a bad thing to abuse. And the real “victum” here is the English language.

  43. Crotchity Old Bubblehead says:

    THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PHOTOS!!! I genuinely feel sorry for these folks. This whole thread reads like a Payton place novel but on a shoestring budget. Wonder if he ever gave her a gift ‘Coupon’ for a free back rub, leg massage or other nefarious activity.

    As far as coming onto a veteran centered blog and making a statement that we never served, be ready to take a shot to the pie hole no matter your age or sex. Comments such as this only feeds the fire and drives some of us to switch from lurking to commenting against anything that state from that point onward.

    #81. As for me:
    -Am I a “dirty pig”-nope (enjoy a nice dip in the backyard hot tub and/or pool 4 or 5 times a week and daily shower)
    -Am I a “women hating dirty old man who can’t get a women of their own to have sex with”-nope (I have a HOT 50yr old bride that chimes the bells on a regular basis)
    -I could care less if you had an affair
    -I can handle a women telling me where to go (wife does so on a regular basis (part of the reason we have been married for 33 yrs))
    -I need to see photographic proof of your statement of being “too pretty to have to work” to judge(trust but verify)
    -I don’t bash women because I can’t get one but might make a comment or three on the ones that appear to be batshit crazy
    -Usually use correct grammar, spelling and sentence structure when I post vice throwing some BS on the wall and seeing if it sticks

    This is The Duffle Blog meets Jerry Springer with a mix of midget porn thrown in.

    How did you know I was a hillbilly? If you love the individual that was the original subject of this post, your standards are pretty low and even if your photographic proof of hotness is presented, you lost major points with those of us that consider honor above all. As a previous poster commented, I also question your morals and recommend you take a look at where you’re headed with your life. You have a chance to not only positively effect your life, but your off-spring if you square your shit away NOW.

    Two thumbs up. From 18 to the early 20s I was interested in 18 and 19 yr old young ladies. In my 50s, I’d be more interested in their moms and some of their grandmothers if I didn’t have a honey at home.

    Great catch Nik. I thought I was reading something that didn’t make since and you researched and confirmed. I had to paste the entire comment stream in a Word document to bust out the sections that countered others.

  44. Hondo says:

    For the record: “extremely disgusted” and “victim” indeed appear to be posting from the same location (IP address match).

  45. NR Pax says:

    Dear English Language,

    We’re so sorry we’ve allowed you to get violated by “extremely disgusted” and “victim” in the above postings. And please tell punctuation, capitalization and spell check that we are sorry for the injury that has been inflicted on them.

  46. Hack Stone says:

    If someone were to run spell check on a few of her postings, their computer would burst into flames.

  47. Hack Stone says:

    I think that the next tournament should have a category for the most incoherent response posted by a sock puppet. “Victum” should at least merit an honorable mention.

  48. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    Can we have a basic literacy test for newcomers to TAH? Nothing too difficult. 10 multiple choice would do. Say, something such as:

    Identify the incorrectly spelled word, if you see one:

    A. Milatary
    B. Milatry
    C. Millatery
    D. Military

  49. Nik says:

    E. Adultery. :p

  50. Hack Stone says:

    Maybe as a prerequisite, you need to take that mini-ASVAB test to assess whether you possess the minimum mental ability to make somewhat intelligent posts to this site. I am talking the twenty minute one, not the full-blown honest to God three hour test. Anyone besides me recall that test? That mini-ASVAB was way old when I enlisted in 1981, and was still being used when I was on Recruiting Duty back in 1988. The reading comprehension portion started out “Mick Jagger is a man used to having doors opened for him…..” I guess that they figured if they threw in a reference to a rock and roller, the kids would “dig it”. I would give the same test to the same kids, and after four or five times, they still only scored in the low 20’s.
