Carroll Bryant; phony SEAL

| January 9, 2013

Carroll seal5

Someone sends us their research on Carroll Bryant who has been pretending to be a SEAL. According to the guy who sent this stuff and did most of the investigating, Bryant has been claiming to be a SEAL for years. And now that he’s been exposed as a liar, of course, its because the Navy had to “erase” his records, to wit (if you can read it);

when my career ended, there were several security issues surrounding my service and what had happened on a specific op… i (and the govt went through great legnths to ensure i was “erased” from specop service..i at time went along with…due to my becoming disenfranchised by things we all had learned our govt was into… during our service…i have always held that i am not responsible to validate myself in any regard to any person..i know what and who i am..and you or any other person can take that at face value of the alternative(ur choice)

Don Shipley says he’s not a SEAL, along with a couple of other phony hunters. From his records, it looks like Bryant spent about six months in the Navy as an E-3. But his FOIA lacks the forms we’re accustomed to seeing. So I’m betting on Don Shipley in this one.

    @45, @46, @50, @56 If you want my contact info so that you can report me to the federal authorities just let me know 😉

  2. Ex-PH2 says:

    You guys give me hope.

  3. Mustang says:

    @101 Be careful, Hondo. You’re not allowed to submit an FOIA for him according to post 46.

  4. DetCord says:

    I shot his info to Scott and Don. They’ll run his name in the UDT-SEAL Database and get back to me.

  5. Anonymous says:

    The thing is, he says he wasn’t a SEAL. He says he was Navy Special Forces. So him not being in the SEAL data base won’t change his story. He has deleted most of his posts in the SpecOps room on FB claiming Navy Special Forces. But his very first post #33 here claims it. That’s when we started busting his balls in the Spec Ops room. He didn’t realize we have almost 100 vetted former SF in there.

  6. Steve says:

    #33, he states he was NOT a SEAL. He still claims Navy SF which does NOT exist

    Having served in Navy Special Forces, I was not a SEAL, but had parallel training under the Joint Military Tactical Operations Directorate, which to this date does not exist to the eyes or the regular Navy or even many in the regular service. Its all on the “Need to Know,” yet there is a trail to all of us, if you look at the right place, but F.O.I.A., will not help you in this case. These people are often covered under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982 (Pub.L. 97-200, 50 U.S.C. §§ 421–426), which I fall under, so anything is possible. In addition to many nondisclosure agreements! Yet you never advertise and this message never came from me! He who speaks loudly probably never served in that capacity. “Loose Lips Sink Ships!”

  7. Mustang says:

    @106 under the “Joint Military Tactical Operations Directorate” which is so secret that no one has ever heard of it.

    On his FB profile he also states that he was once worked for the Inspector General of the United States.

  8. DetCord says:

    FLMAO! Joint Self-Involved Bullshit Artist Directorate is more like it.

    Oddly enough, the only mention of the supposed “JMTOD” relinks right to this very fuckin’ page. Oh… what an asshole!…1336.11346.0.12434.…1c.1.f4vsgNYirTE&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.41248874,d.b2U&fp=86adb78287de6c61&biw=1920&bih=923

  9. Steve says:

    Carlos bailed from the U.S. Spec Ops room on FB and I don’t see him here opining his bravado anymore.

    If he is still lurking in the shadows I would like to point out Calling yourself Navy Special Forces is akin to saying you were an Army SEAL. No such animal. You might want to refine your poser story.

  10. Hack.Stone says:

    Because Beachedwhale stated that questioning his credentials falls under espionage, am I obligated to report myself to my security officer that handles my TS/SCI?

  11. Hondo says:

    Mustang: well, I guess I’m in “deep doo doo” then. (smile)

  12. Nik says:

    Damn. Haven’t seen this one before. What happened? Did Failbeach eat a thesaurus? I only ask because that’s some shitty writing he’s pulling out his ass.

  13. OWB says:

    So, do we need to stop claiming things like being door gunners on the space shuttle?

  14. Nik says:


    Apparently not. If what Failbeach spewed forth on his keyboard is true, anyone who questions your claim will be…like..sued…to death.

  15. OWB says:

    Ahhh, Nik. We may have just defined the differance between drama and comedy?

  16. bpete1969 says:


    Steve…I think you may be mistaken. I was an Army Seal prior to the Crimean War when we were all reclassified and reassigned to the U.S. Air Force as Underwater Hull Inspectors.

    But then that’s only on a need-to-know for certain eyes only basis. The Army destroyed all of those records when coffee was spilled in the filing cabinet they were kept in.

  17. bpete1969 says:

    P.S…..I still got my magic decoder ring to prove it….

  18. Nik says:

    This one is full of so much win:

    Having served in Navy Special Forces, I was not a SEAL, but had parallel training under the Joint Military Tactical Operations Directorate, which to this date does not exist to the eyes or the regular Navy or even many in the regular service.

    Blah blah blah unit so secret it doesn’t even have a name blah blah blah.

    Yet…I’m gonna blab all about it on an open forum.

  20. Ex-PH2 says:

    Is the Jointsmoking Tackhammer Optional Dictionary an exclusive boys’ club, or can girls join, too?

  21. Green Thumb says:

    You would think these maggots would learn from one anothers mistakes.

    Although I do not remember this imposter’s name, he was posted on here last year? He showed up at a high school reunion decked out like a war hero in full USMC dress uniform claiming LTC or such. And there happened to be a Navy Commander present (former classmate) that busted him. The clown had glasses, I remember that much.

    Point being, what will happen when the posers start to “network”?


  22. Twist says:

    @122, If they can’t figure out how to google Military uniforms then networking to them would be like calculus is to a dog.

  23. Green Thumb says:


    Good point.

    I posted on a thread before (do not remember) that TAH should organize these posers into platoons, squads, etc. Do it based on claimed rank, kills, secret missions (put them in recon), medals, perceived skill sets, etc.

    I mean we have Privates all the way to Generals.

    Great way to keep track of your favorite poser(s).

  24. Eggs says:

    … which to this date does not exist to the eyes …

    Wow. I believe that right there is a description of Wonder Woman’s jet. Just sayin’.

  25. Steve says:

    Do we have a way to post a pic in a thread? I can post a pic of Sailbeach.

  26. OWB says:

    @ #121: Oh, girls can definitely join. I commanded that unit for a while. Think I was a major chief at the time, prior to the promotion to advocate general of the armed forces assemblies of former platoon bucks and does.

  27. Just an Old Dog says:

    The ass-whistlers that come in here and try to intimidate career military people with bullshit they heard in the movies and cut-n-paste posts are a hoot. Its like some goober who watched the Movie “Days of Thunder” and took their car to jiffy Lube walking into a Porsche factory and bullshitting the engineers.

  28. NHSparky says:

    I’m still waiting for Failbeach to show up here and try to serve us like the fat Canadian Ranger.

    “Yo, eh? I’m like, gonna sue you, eh!”

  29. Steve says:

    @bpete1969, Damn. I lost my Decoder ring on Hay Street Fayettenam N.C. back when it was still a gutter. Either there or Bottoms Up. Can’t remember.

  31. Steve Dorsey says:

    I met this Carroll Bryant (If that’s even his real name) at a restaurant in Huber Heights, OH, where he was waiting tables at the age of 45 or so. Real fucking motivated that one.
    I was not impressed from the get-go.
    He was bragging about himself and how well he was doing (Like I gave a shit).
    One of the funniest things I ever heard was, after being called a Kool-Aid drinker Carroll called the person that called him that a racist. What a dumb-ass to think that being called a Kool-Aid drinker has anything to do with race.
    This tells me that he is too stupid to ever have been a Navy Seal. He’s too stupid to have ever waited tables for the Navy Seals, or, even shine their boots.
    Do us all a favor Carroll, the responsible thing, after all this posing and being a dumbass, take your Navy Colt, stick it down your lying throat and us your imagination.
    Put us all out of our misery having to deal with scum-of-the-earth like you. Please lower the dumbass population by not forgetting to load that Colt beforehand

    Later, you posing, low-life P.O.S.

  32. Steve Tobe says:

    I think he just misspoke,Instead of saying,”I once served as a Navy Seal,” he meant that, “I once served Navy Seals in the Mess Hall.”

  33. Steve Tobe says:

    He was awarded the “Purple Heart” for getting shell fragments in his eye….He was peeling hard boiled eggs while on Kitchen Patrol.

  34. Green Thumb says:

    This fool has a purple asshole from all of the bruising as a result from being his being in constant contact.


  35. Steve says:

    Steve Dorsey, that would be the same carroll. He was a bartender @ Texas Roadhouse. A real punk. He’s still woof’n crap about being deleted from SpecOps files to anybody that will listen. In our H.S. room, people are now calling him Pseudoseal. LMAO

  36. Carroll Bryant says:

    I am the author, Carroll Bryant, who joined the U.S. Army Reserves at 17 and then transferred a year later into the active Navy.

    I took my basic in Army Res. at Fort Dix New Jersey. Where I also stayed on to complete my LWVPGO classes.

    I returned home afterwards and for the most part of the summer spent looking for a job. When none was found, I transferred into the active Navy after my two week reserve duty at Fort Bragg.

    In the Navy, I went to basic at Great Lakes and from there was sent to NTTC in Meridian, Mississippi for “supply” school. Upon completion of that, our class was given 32 orders for the 32 people who were in it. two of the people had dropped out so there was only 30 of us left. Everyone got to pick their “duty” according to their GPA in the class. I selected “Navy seal” – then after a few weeks, yeah, I rang the bell and was reassigned. I went to the USS Independence (now decommissioned) which was at that time located in Norfolk, Virginia, where I spent the rest of my enlistment.

    As for the white man pictured above with the black guy, that is not me. I have never claimed to be a “Seal”. That has to be earned and I did not earn it. So please, do not confuse me with this guy. Thank you.

  37. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Seems legit to me:

    Carrol (the non-black guy) referenced above has two blog site.

    Carrol also has a anti-AlGorenet bullying blog!

  38. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ 137 … Carrol what class did you ring out of?

  39. Steve says:

    The Black guy in the picture IS a Carroll Bryant that claims Super Secret SEAL. He claims “they” the government deleted him for Spec Ops records. I went to High School with the turd as did others in this thread that heard his lies. If another carroll Bryant exists, this is not the one we have outed here. The Black dude is the one named Carroll Bryant and to this day STILL claims secret squirrel SEAL even after indisputable prove posted debunking his claims by Navy SEAL foundation and Don Shipley. Secret missions yes…..secret SEAL’s NEVER. Nuff said

  40. Steve says:

    The Carroll Bryant’s (black Carroll) former wife has posted in this thread as well. We are not claiming this to be the Author carroll Bryant. A link to the secret SEAL Bryant. He has deleted most if not all of his SEAL pictures and claims, however, if questioned he will still claim “classified” or he was deleted but he will still go on to tell you he was a SEAL. LMAO, why delete yourself if you spend the rest of your life claiming SEAL. Kind of defeats the purpose.

  42. Smart EXWIFE says:

    The picture of me and Carroll is 2 yrs old. We are divorced. I know nothing about ex husband’s true credentials…leaving that to the pro’s!! Thank you to all who serve with honor and dedication..

  43. MrGameandShow formerly C2 says:

    LOL Beachsail posts…comedy.

  44. OldSargeUSAR says:

    In one of the pictures, above, black Bryant is wearing a Michigan Wolverines hat. Does that mean he’s a tackling dummy?

  45. Don says:

    The only thing remotely ‘seal like’ this tub of country crock ever did was balance balls on his nose.

  46. Chuck says:

    Why is everyone phony dude a former SEAL, or some other Special Ops dude? None are ever MPs, Engineers, Truck Drivers, Medics, Clerks, etc…. Which make up 90% or better of the Armed Forces…

  47. Scotty says:

    Helping to make the dingleberry famous in the warped twisted minds of the poser world.

  48. Sam says:

    IF the govt had to “erase” him because of “security” concerns why is he blabbering about it to the public? Kind of like someone going to in witness protection and blabbering that he’s in witness protection.

  49. Hondo says:

    Sam: most of those featured in articles here at TAH aren’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed.

    Most of them are indeed IMO tools, however.
