Fred Eugene Hughes

Scotty sends us his work on this fellow, Fred Eugene Hughes, who claimed that he was special forces with 101st Airborne Division;

Fred Eugene Hughes claims

Not having your facts straight gets you in trouble every time. From his records, he was a petroleum supply specialist during Desert Storm and got out a few months later. He had a break in service from 1991 to 1993 and went back into the Army as a mechanic until 1996 – two three tours in the Army, but not as a special forces soldier. It looks like he got out as an E-3 Private First Class. But his records show that he went to the leadership course, and they don’t usually send PFCs to that, so there must have been a bust in there somewhere;

    Gulf War Veteran with a Bronze Star, according to one of the documents… apparently that wasn’t good enough for him. 🙄

    On his facebook page, a woman asks him if he’s familiar with a name. He tries to pick her up. 😆 She shoots him down. 😆

    • LanceCooley says:

      That’s the first thing I saw, and I did a double take. WHY? Just fucking WHY?! I’ve got three ribbons to my name, two just for being in (NDSM, GWOT), and I can’t imagine going around saying the type of shit these guys do. I just don’t get it.

  2. Marine_7002 says:

    “Airasault”? “Sargent”?

    If ya can’t spell it, you weren’t ever it.

    • Hondo says:

      Hell, Marine_7002 – the guy WAS Air Assault qualified (see his record of training excerpt provided above). And he still can’t spell “Air Assault”. (smile)

    • CLAW131 says:

      Have you ever had one of those mechanics whose lips move when he comes to a stop sign? I think ole Fred Senior here resembles that remark.

  3. Thunderstixx says:

    Air Ass ASSault….
    One can only wonder what makes these guys tick…

    A Bronze Star for valor and he lies about his record ???

    WTF is it with these idiots…

    • Eric says:

      No Valor there, just a “plain” BSM. Granted that’s still pretty significant for a fuel pumping PFC/SPC during DS/DS.

      I’m not so familiar with the awards given during Gulf War I, maybe someone else knows the stats on those.

      Looks like another excellent career marred with stupidity.

      • riflemusket says:

        Eric; don’t know the stats on the 101AB. But I was in the 1st AD, and can say they handed out awards like candy. Now there were those who legitimately earned them. There were a couple in my unit who earned their ARCOMS with a V device. We had E-6’s and above awarded plain Bronze stars regardless of what they did, good or bad. That really bugged the shit out of alot of people. It seems they wanted us all to look like heros or whatever.

      • Martin says:

        Many Bronze Stars were given out to the Rear Echelon units in Desert Storm. It was always somewhat of a bone of contention with the guys in our unit (2nd ACR). As a matter of fact one of our guys nearly got his ass in a sling for a little bit of wall to wall counseling on a female truck driver proudly displaying her bronze star (we all got “2nd ACR Desert Legion” certificates). He was telling another guy about accidentally shooting a guy who stood up to surrender while laying down suppressing fire. The nice lady with the BSM called him a murderer for killing someone giving up. She never got closer to combat than KKMC and called guys balls deep in bodies “murderers”. Yeah…. BSMs really don’t impress me without a “V” anymore, and particularly if they come from DS/DS on some REMF

    This maggot was hanging with the “Big Turd” Riley Keeton.

    Truly a couple of “Phildosque” dudes, indeed.

    • CLAW131 says:

      GT,ole Fred here does have a Motorcycle Drivers Clasp (see Scotty’s page) for the Driver and Mechanic Badge,so you know he’s been out riding with the “Big Turd” on more than one occasion.

      • Green Thumb says:

        More like “riding in” the “Big Turd” Riley Keeton.

        I wonder if he hides behind scripture as well as he rocks his claims?

        Maggot.

        • CLAW131 says:

          Probably more likely being “ridden by” the Big Turd. To me he looks more like a catcher than a pitcher. But I could be wrong. Big Turd probably runs a DA6 duty roster just to keep track of whose turn it is.

          • CLAW131 says:

            Oops,incorrect definition of the word “ridden”. So delete “ridden” and insert “rode”. I regret the error.

  5. ArmyATC says:

    This shitbird has two different pages. On his second he claims to have four Bronze Stars. https://www.facebook.com/hughes.fred4360

  6. Hayabusa says:

    Wow, service in Desert Storm with a Bronze Star, ARCOM, and 3 AAMs to show for it? That’s a record to be proud of, regardless of what MOS he was or what rank he got out at. Reality just never seems to be good enough for some people.

    • riflemusket says:

      That is a record to be proud of. But Sadly,
      I would say it’s ‘major ego’ and other issues.

    • propsguy says:

      No Kidding. After our OIF V-VII ( or what ever the hell they were calling it that week)…we got all of our btdt bling and the one that most impressed my wife AND parents was…..

      THe good conduct medal

      ” You got a good conduct medal? YOU? How did you manage to keep your mouth shut for a whole year????? “

  10. Ex-PH2 says:
