Craig sends us his work on Dale Kubichek who Craig met in a HAM Radio forum. Craig noticed that on his profile Dale had a couple of service medals for Vietnam and asked Craig about them. Dale’s “cousin” chimed in to the discussion and told craig that Dale had been in the brown water Navy in Vietnam and taken prisoner, but escaped. But there’s no record at the DoD’s POW/MIA Personnel Office. In fact, Dale’s service didn’t begin until he went to the Naval Training Center at Great Lakes in June, 1973. Combat operations in Vietnam ended while he was at NTC in August, 1973, according to his records;
But, of course, without the lies, he had a perfectly honorable career;
There are more images of his records at Scotty’s place, if you’re interested. Craig adds;
He was in the Navy during the dates claimed
He was Discharged as a Petty Officer First Class E-6
He was at NTC Great Lakes, IL and the USS Jouett CG-29
His Military Education is as follows; Basic Electricity & Electronics / Fire Control Technician (Class A) / Fire Control Technician ( Class C) / Instructor Basic
His Military Awards; National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Sea Service Ribbon, Navy E Ribbon.
Now neither of the ribbons he displays on his QSL card are in his records, no MIA time in his dates of service and nothing else that would indicate any combat time at all.
I researched the USS Jouett and it had left the Vietnam Theatre a month before Dale even joined the US Navy, and was never in a combat role after that.
I also saw no Military Education for Armed Forces Police or for NIS Agent
He retired as an E6, so I don’t know how he figures anyone would believe that he was a company commander.
