Gregory Allen; phony Marine

| May 1, 2015

Gregory Allen

Mary sends us a link to the story of Gregory Allen, a fellow in California who reportedly does a lot of good work for veterans as president of the Marin chapter of the Military Officers Association of America. According to the Marin Independent Journal, he has claimed to be two-tour 1st Lieutenant Vietnam veteran. Looking at the picture of him above, he claims that he was SCUBA-qualified, parachute-qualified, he has two Navy Marine Corps Medals (which are awarded for heroism not against an armed enemy), a Bronze Star Medal, two Purple Heart Medals, a Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Navy Marine Corps Achievement Medal among some other stuff, including Vietnam service awards.

The Journal says none of that is true;

However, “Two public affairs officers from the Western Recruiting Region did an investigation and were unable to find any record of him serving in the Marine Corps,” said Sgt. Alfred Lopez, public affairs director for the Recruiting Station San Francisco for the U.S. Marine Corps.

“This is conclusive that he has not served (in the Marines),” Lopez said.

[…]

“I believe the only records of him serving in any military capacity were of a short enlistment in the Navy” for less than a year, with a medical discharge, Lopez said. He declined to elaborate.

Of course, Allen isn’t going to admit that he has been lying for more than 10 years;

Asked Thursday, “Did you serve in the Marine Corps?” Allen responded, “I’m not going to say anything. I’m going to let the lawyer answer these questions. We have some things going on we have to be sure of.”

Allen would not give his attorney’s name or contact information, and though he said the lawyer would contact the Independent Journal for an interview, no such contact was made.

Asked if he could furnish a copy of his DD-214, an official document of military service, Allen said he would supply it when he receives it.

“All the accusations brought forth, we will aggressively respond. There is more to what happens as to why this began in the first place,” he said, though he would not elaborate.

So, he’s saying that he doesn’t have a copy of his DD214, so how did he join the MOAA and become president of his local chapter? Everyone speaks highly of his work with youths who needed his mentoring to succeed when they went to basic training. As we’ve seen, these guys are always guilty of something else besides stealing honor for wearing awards they never earned and since he’s worked with youngsters, I’d look into that if I were a police officer.

Mary has already submitted for a FOIA.

    Seriously dude? If you’re going to rock the lie and be Danny Danger, do a little better than a pizza box. 2nd Award expert at least.
    And 2 tours in Vietnam? You should have a SSDR with a star for that I believe.

  2. sj says:

    Re: “I’m going to let the lawyer answer these questions.”

    Oh no. California. Lawyer. Could it be Crash Bernasty?

    • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

      You mean “soon to be disbarred for life” Dan “I can’t read a fuel gauge” Bernasty?

      • Smitty says:

        No, it’s Dan “I cant figure out what the hole between my wife’s legs is for” bernasty.

        Seriously, I’m never going to give up on him calling his own wife chaste

  3. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Just checked out the link that Jonn provided… some asswipe by the name of William Rothman seems to think it’s “no big deal” and spouting off about Iraq and Afghanistan.

  4. Hondo says:

    Before I forget: kudos to the Marin Independent Journal and author of the original article, Ms. Janis Mara, for exercising due diligence and exposing this fraud.

    • Sandy says:

      This came out because ABC dan…something?….is doing an expose tonight at 11 if you are in the bay area. Because he was investigating, the IJ got wind of it. Sorry I don’t generally watch TV so I’m not up on on the journalists but it is tonight at 2300.

      • James Brown says:

        You are correct. Dan Noyes with ABC News was the only investigating news agency. When Greg Allen became defiant and went public trying to get support before the story aired, the Marin IJ and 2 other stations tried to scoop the story from ABC, but all of the initial research was done by Dan Noyes and I did a fair amount as well, and fed everything that I found directly to Dan.

  5. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    And again, two tours and gets out as a 1LT? Did he not have a pulse when they were promoting folks to Captain?

    • Hondo says:

      Bingo.

      Knew a few officers when I was a kid who’d served in Vietnam. Can’t speak for the USMC, but in the Army during Vietnam it was approx 2 yrs from commissioning to CPT.

      • sj says:

        In ’63-68 era for Army, it was 18 months to 1LT and 18 months to CPT.

        • Hondo says:

          OK, apparently my memory was incorrect – would have sworn the guy told me he’d been a CPT for 9 yrs and had just over 11 yrs service when he made MAJ. ‘Course, that memory is approaching 40 years old now. (smile)

          Thanks for the correction.

          • sj says:

            I should say ’63-’66. I don’t know about ’68 because I already was one. I forget what the wait time to get screened for MAJ was but I remember vividly that I was on the MAJ’s list for 7 years! I was worried about taking an Aide’s job to the Monmouth CG because I’d get promoted. Hell I finished that tour AND 2 others before getting through that list.

            • Hondo says:

              sj: believe the guy I was speaking of got commissioned in the 65-67 time frame – I want to say 1966. I’m pretty sure he told me that in late-77 or early-78 time frame, just after he’d pinned on MAJ.

              But hell, that WAS nearly 40 years ago now. I could well be “out to lunch” on that, too. (smile)

            • @ SJ, Et Alii:

              I reckon I must have been “on the MAJ’s list”, too, which is why I kept pulling so much KP!

    • Sandy says:

      He said he was a….shoot can’t remember, either a gunny or a top and got a field promotion. I know him.

    • James Brown says:

      His argument was that he received a battlefield commission. but that didn’t hold water either.

  6. Sapper3307 says:

    He might have pulled it off if he was rocking the dog tags. A dog tag with a bullet hole is even better.

  7. GDContractor says:

    “Working with youth.”

    It’s always there. Sometimes you just have to wait for it.

  8. geetwillickers says:

    My first clue:

    “There is more to what happens as to…”

    That is all.

  9. Guard Bum says:

    Da Fuq? A toilet seat?

    I am always suspicious of any Veteran that feels compelled to wear all that stuff on a civilian coat. Miniature medals maybe on a tux or something but MM shooting badges?

    • Dave Hardin says:

      We finally got one. Scuba bubble, jump wings, with a rifle toilet seat and pistol sharpshooter badge.

      What? No Force RECON claim? His PUC and VCA are out of order.

      So, for him to be legit he would have to have been a LCpl/Cpl with a Battlefield Commission with less than 3 years service.(No GCM) He then spends 4 years making it to 1st Lt.

      Since we only display our last shooting awards, it is obvious his injury resulting in his first Purple Heart and probably Bronze Star resulted in his piss poor performance at the range.

      During a short break after TET, he managed to save the lives of two different people coming and going from the Nam. (NMM’s)

      He was in the Nam during four separate campaigns or possibly stationed in Thailand, Laos, or Cambodia as well.

      He was then injured again in battle resulting in a career ending injuy (second Purple Heart) and medically retired.

      He is either all that or full of shit.

      Seems that if I had done all that and you questioned my service I would take my DD214 and shove it up your ass.

      But, thats just me.

      • James Brown says:

        There are photos of him with the GCM as well, and others with 17, 18 and 19 medals. And in some photos he upgraded with marksman to expert.

    • @ GUARD BUM, Et Alii:

      As a retired and disabled old war veteran, on appropriate patriotic occasions, I wear my full-sized medals on my best civilian Sunday-go-to-meetin’ suit coat, and at Scottish clan gatherings, I wear my medals with my tartan kilt.

      It’s authorized by Army Regulation 670-1:30-6.

      However, I did learn from a retired Marine gunnery sergeant that rifle qualification badges are not supposed to be worn when wearing the full-sized medals.

      At the time, even he was making that same mistake, and as soon as he learned, he came and told me.

      That retired Marine gunnery sergeant, being of Scottish descent, was also the one who taught me how to properly wear my tartan kilt, along with all of the traditional Highland regalia.

      Both of us went together to the “GATHERING OF EAGLES” to protect the national Viet Nam Memorial from vandalism that had been threatened over the Internet.

      At the time that I attended the III Corps NCO Academy, there was NO instruction on how and when to wear full-sized medals on the uniform.

  10. Green Thumb says:

    I wonder how this turd sucker was busted?

    And who is the lawyer, Lori Benton?

    • John Sammons says:

      I think he got busted at least 3 ways – the USMC had requested that he not parade his “troops” in uniform and with the colors then there he was on April 28 with a color guard for the Vietnamese Walk. The Marin IJ reporter received an email that alerted her that he was under investigation which triggered her due diligence and article. Dan Noyes apparently had been alerted by a USMC Colonel (ret) from the Wine Country Marines who saw him in his full Marine Corps League regalia next to the casket of a young marine who had committed suicide. Dan Noyes also called MOAA headquarters and interviewed their General Counsel who then alerted the state organization who did their own due diligence and came up with the same information. BTW Dan Noyes report was comprehensive and spot on.

      • Sally says:

        Dan Noyes did an investigative report because his son was working out with Greg and was going to join the Marines instead of going to College on a scholarship. Dan was pissed his son joined the Marines and went after Greg. Not saying Greg was right, but there are if it’s all true about Greg, there are two hypocrites involved in this story..Dan and Greg.

        • Jonn Lilyea says:

          I’m sorry, but Dan didn’t seem “pissed” when he proudly posted the picture of his son taking the oath of enlistment the other day on Facebook. Dan’s son quit going to House of Steel months ago when Dan suspected Greg was lying. I think your statement is full of supposition. But, bottom line up front; Greg has been lying for years. Nothing can mitigate that simple fact.

        • ChipNASA says:

          Annnndd so it begins.

          So, um, Sally, you’re good friends with Dan Noyes and have an intimate knowledge of his and his son’s relationship and his plans for the future?

          Or you’re just making shit up about things of which you have no idea.

          /I’ll go with number two.

        • ChipNASA says:

          S_ckp_pp_t.

          ” Yes, Vanna,
          I’d like to buy vowel.” 😀

      • James Brown says:

        No John, that’s not what happened.

        1. Dan’s son was working out at the gym for a short period of time, but then didn’t want to any more. Dan was curious and started to inquire. His son had a good radar on him and felt something was off with Greg Allen.

        2. Subsequently, I (Board Member at Wine Country Marines) got a call from the SgtMaj at the RS who asked if I knew a guy named Gregory Allen. I said that I did not, and why was he asking. And he told me that Greg Allen was taking credit for some of the stuff we did for his command. So then I notified Col Bill Peacock, our Chairman of the Board, and then I started my own investigation. i then told the SgtMaj that we need to call the media in, and I recommended Dan Noyes, only to learn that Dan was already working on this. So then I started sharing what I learned with Dan to aid in his investigation. I also learned that a number of his victims were known very well to us at Wine Country Marines, and at that point I notified the FBI, the VA and the State of California DMV so that they could start their investigations. All are ongoing and moving along very well.

        The other media outlets got wind of it when Allen went on facebook and tried to rally support for his cause, accusing Dan Noyes of having a vendetta against him. That backfired, as the local media picked up on it and tried to beat Dan to air the story.

        And their you have it. The story isn’t yet finished, there is sure to be more to come.

  11. Pinto Nag says:

    Jeebus, what’s with the red coat? Is he gonna go wave himself at a bull or something?

  12. Hayabusa says:

    Dudeman’s eyes look like a couple of piss holes in the snow. Creepy.

    • Green Thumb says:

      And it appears he had access to a lot of impressionable kids.

      And I love the fact the UVC is coming to his defense.

  13. Combat Historian says:

    “…Asked if he could furnish a copy of his DD-214, an official document of military service, Allen said he would supply it when he receives it….”

    That’ll buy you some time to purchase a phony 214 off the internet, right, greggy ?

  14. JarHead Pat says:

    2 CARS? I can still hear Profile screaming RECON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!/ What a loser, and yeah it smells like a pedo, local LEO should check him out.

    • Climb to Glory says:

      I was wondering the same thing. And don’t the Bronze Star and Purple Heart take precedents over that award. Not a Marine but I don’t think he should be rocking that at the top of his stack. And correct me if I’m wrong but two CARs? You only receive one no matter the different wars you served in, right? Wonder if he’s friends with Jerry Vroombout.

      • Hondo says:

        I think his highest ribbon on his “rack” is the NMCM, not the CAR. That’s the equivalent of the Soldiers Medal, and is indeed higher in precedence than the BSM. He claims to have been awarded two of them.

        • Climb to Glory says:

          My bad. Couldn’t see the picture that well. I thought it may have been a CAR. So he’s claiming a Purple Heart and no CAR? What dumbass phony would not claim to have a CAR. Especially one that claims to have multiple Purple Hearts.

        • Joe Williams says:

          Look at his bottom row of medals. It appears he does have the correct three ribbons for Nam. Joe PS please disregard the report reply, wrong button

  15. Club Manager says:

    I’m not aware of Military Officers Association of America chapters asking for a DD Form 214 and former officers are eligible for membership. Usually if someone is a poser, the rank and file can quickly weed them out; however, with 380,000 members world-wide, there will be that occasional scumbag that surfaces. I’ve sent this item to MOAA asking what they plan to do about it.

  16. Flagwaver says:

    If he was able to get into a Veteran Organization, I wonder if he’s also drawing VA Disability. How many of these phony veterans working for Veteran Service Organizations use the clout of the organization to steal benefits that were never earned?

    • Hondo says:

      A caution: any VA benefits could theoretically be legit. If he served for 180+ days prior to Sep 1980, he’d qualify based on that, provided his discharge was General (Under Honorable Conditions) or Honorable. That would be consistent with receiving a medical discharge after <1 yr service.

      Bottom line: IMO the guy's lying his azz off about his record, but any VA bennies he's getting could be legit.

  17. 19D2OR4 - Smitty says:

    Maybe my eyes are fooling me today, but that looks like a gold OLC on his PH, not a bronze. If that is the case then he would be claiming what 31 awards of the PH not 2?

    • CLAW131 says:

      Smitty, what he has is a single 5/16″ Gold Star on the PH which indicates one additional award.

      For the Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard, the 5/16″ Gold (then Silver for the sixth and more) Star denotes additional awards.

      As you know, OLC’s are used by the Army and Air Force in first Bronze and then Silver for the additional awards.

      • 19D2O - Smitty says:

        Ahh I see it now. I was looking at it on my phone earlier. Bad picture. I stand corrected. Thanks Claw

        Damn wet services fucking with my brain lol.

        • CLAW131 says:

          You’re welcome.

          But as a LSOS poser, he’s still not entitled to it even if he is wearing it correctly.

          I’m still not able to identify the one ribbon on his bottom row (first ribbon inboard) that does look like it has two OLC’s attached. Hell, it could be a “Best Soap Dropper in the Field Shower” medal for all I know.

          Maybe our TAH Marines/Navy types could identify it. I sure can’t.

          • Bill M says:

            That could be “Republic of Vietnam Civil Actions Ribbon 1/C”. I think I see two different colored lines in the center of the ribbon and the stripes on the edges look darker that what I’d expect from another possibility — “Navy Marine Corps Achievement Ribbon.” This is just a guess from an AF type.

            • CLAW131 says:

              Bill M – I think you are correct on it being a RVN Civil Actions Ribbon 1/C (for officers only)

              I had never seen one displayed as a personal medal/ribbon. All the ones I had seen before were as a unit citation (with frame and palm).

              Thanks for the “good eyeball”.

              I’m sure he really had to dig hard to come up with such an obscure award since it applies to civil affairs type actions.

              • Hondo says:

                CLAW131: seems to me I remember reading that the USMC was big into civic action stuff during Vietnam, particularly before TET68. If so, among USMC Vietnam Vets, the RVN Civic Action Medal (individual) may not be all that rare.

  18. klaus says:

    This is really, really sad. I know this man. He runs his gym a few blocks from where i used to live. I met him in 2009-ish when I started a website to send care packages to servicemen overseas. He was dedicated to helping people and he helped me find contacts to send care packages to.

    From what I read here it sounds like he is not who he said he is, and I am tremendously sad since he could have done all that good without pretending to be someone else.

    • Sandy says:

      I agree. I’ve known him for years. No pedophile this guy. Runs a youth program that was tougher than Quantico was, it’s sad. As for moaa they don’t require dox. There will be severe backlash on him cause he had guys from his program on just about every intake down in San Diego and since they’d invariably be top of their intake, he was feted by a lot of brass

      • Green Thumb says:

        I do not think the issue is that he is a meatgazer (he could be; maybe he liked to watch them work out).

        It’s more along the lines of he had access to young, impressionable kids.

      • Just an Old Dog says:

        If you are saying it was “tougher than Quantico was” based on his word…. not likely.
        I think you said earlier he claims he was a Gunny or Master Sgt and got a battlefield comission. Way to many holes in that as well.
        Looks like he did fool a lot of bonafides, more than likely because he worked with a lot of the poolees who went in.
        Recruiters tend to not look gift horses in the mouth.
        I’m betting there is some forgery and ass-hattery going on with the VA. They need to prosecute this fucker.
        The picture of him all decked out in his get-up by the flag draped coffin makes my blood boil.

        • Sandy says:

          Hey Old Dog: No, not based on his word – based on my USMC boot being at Quantico. Then again, that was nearly 30 years ago, so maybe I have softened the edges and the black flag days. – S

        • Sandy says:

          yes that’s right re the field commission. but what you said about 1stLt/2ndLt – !!! I chalked it up to the whole “field commission” thing because frankly I wasn’t sure how those might have worked in VN. But you’re so right.

          I went to VN now about 3 years ago with a couple of guys who wanted to make their peace with their time there. They’re a lot older than I am (I’m in my 50s) – they had to be certainly late 70s-80s. It was an emotional trip for them. I mentioned it to Allen and he RANTED about VN, didn’t want to “hear anything” about it, etc. It was an odd reaction, because the folks I’ve known that were in VN (maybe a dozen) have more “made their peace” with it and a lot have actually gone back. The reaction was jarring. Maybe because if I’d asked him about any of the geography/etc. he would not have been able to talk about it cos he’d never been there? Hm. He also has a “buddy from the military” who hangs around his gym and also perhaps owns it with him. I realized this the other day. This guy can’t be real, either. Freaks me out. I can’t think of what he does – maybe a high school gym teacher? Not sure. But he and Greg would “talk about their military time together” and now that I think about it, how COULD that be true – ???

          One thing that was interesting was there was a guy who was a Marine and hadn’t gotten his medals – his wife had approached Allen about it, and Allen actually somehow ferreted out how to go about this, then had a big ceremony at MOAA to present the medals to the guy. I’m surprised that somehow during that whole period he wasn’t sniffed out.

          • Just an Old Dog says:

            Yes,
            IIRC, the Marines who were selected for direct commission during Vietnam were experienced Staff NCOs
            Col Wesley Fox Medal of Honor recipient was one of the Marines chosen.
            He had about 16 years in and was a 1st Sgt when he got tapped.
            After Vietnam several of these Marines were reverted back to enlisted.

    • Just an Old Dog says:

      Yes, that is sad. He did all those good things without having a stellar military career. Not having a history of military service doesnt take anything away from that. LYING about it does.

    • spd0302 says:

      @Klaus….sorry, I accidentally hit the report button on your comment. Administrators, please disregard. Thanks.

      In other news….here is the LSOS’s lame apology via local news….
      http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/05/01/gregory-allen-marin-county-gym-owner-apologizes-claiming-decorated-marine/

      • CLAW131 says:

        I neither saw or heard an apology anywhere in that news report.

        All I got out of it was “Yeah, I got caught. Talk to my lawyer”

  19. 13B/92S/02M says:

    I am currently watching the local news here in the SF Bay Area ABC Channel 7 News ..reporter Dan Noyes is all over his @$$ !!

  20. cdog says:

    If he is only 62 years old…how could he have served 2 tours in ‘Nam? Plus in Marin IJ article he claims he was active back in 1967..14 years old!!!?? Google Marin IJ article on him from 12/31/09

  21. Marine_7002 says:

    The link to the story that 13B/92S/02M referred to is at http://abc7news.com/careers/i-team-fbi-investigates-fake-marine-from-marin-county/692349/

    Not only did this shithead get froggy with Dan Noyes (BRAVO ZULU, DAN!!!!), but it turns out that he’s a convicted felon and a former drug addict:

    “He received a sentence of three years in state prison after violating a restraining order when he climbed in his wife’s bedroom window, threatened to cut her throat and shoot her. At the time, he blamed his drug addiction.”

    The story has a picture of his VA health ID card. It also has a link to the results of the FOIA on him.

    He’s a low-life, scum-sucking, valor-stealing turd. The local recruiters did the right thing and are prohibiting their recruits from having anything to do with Allen.

    Oh, and at least one person at the local American Legion post is completely clueless:

    “Even when Noyes raised questions about Allen’s credentials, veterans stood by him at the American Legion post in Larkspur. Jackie Tribolet said, “I’m going to stick with believing Greg until Jesus comes down from heaven and tells me otherwise.”

    I didn’t know that American Legion posts sold drugs to their members, because THAT one HAS to be on SOMEthing.

    • the Al says:

      Wow, that won’t buff out. Also, Jonn, ignore the report on this one- I carry fingered the buttons on mutt phone and hit report instead of reply.

    • Hondo says:

      So, he’s a convicted felon too? Why doesn’t that surprise me?

    • OWB says:

      Jackie certainly needs a med check – that is an incredibly stupid thing to say to the media. (Not that I totally trust what the media says that anyone said, but still.) If you’re going to speak on behalf of an organization, care should be taken to make the organization look good as a result, doncha think?

    • Dave Hardin says:

      Well, it is not looking good for numbnutz, is it? As Hondo said earlier, if he served 180 days his VA qualification could be legit. I doubt there is much of a chance he used a real DD214.

      Usually, I mention something about the gullible phuks that buy into these posers bullshit. This one however, has a valid VA ‘Service Connected’ ID card. Flashing that certainly add credibility to his claims.

      Had a talk yesterday with one of our members who shall remain anonymous, this is a fine example of why I have no respect for the VA and how they determine benefits.

      • Kat says:

        How is he able to use an ID with a Marine insignia on it of he was Navy? That makes me think it’s off, even if the Marines are under the Navy Department.

        • Just an Old Dog says:

          Thats a huge question, in order to get that emblem on his VA card he would have to show them a DD214 from the Corps. In other words he forged it.
          Also if he was discharged from the Navy for an Injury that existed prior to enlistment, he rates zero bennies. The VA IG needs to get on his ass.
          One last thing, this piece ofd shit constantly refers to himself as a Lt, both verbally and in writing. While its a common practice to address Marines as Lt, in correspondence they are 1stLt or 2ndLt.

          • OWB says:

            Not so fast! Yes, the VA IS paying out bennies for prior to service injuries. Got a friend of a friend who was hounded by a VA chick with a clipboard drumming up business out on the street. It took two weeks of her begging him to “just sign the form!” and him telling her “but my knee was injured before I served” before he gave in and signed the form. She kept telling him that it didn’t matter if his knee injury was not related to his military service. Within 10 days he was moved into a furnished apartment, received his first disability check, and was lined up for medical care, with transportation provided. He stills believes it was fraud to even offer it to him, but figured she was never going to take care of other vets until he gave in.

    With apologies to The Trashmen, and a nod to Green Thumb, this song’s for Gregory Allen, fake Marine:

    “A-well-a, everybody’s heard about the turd
    Turd, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, the turd is the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, well, the turd is the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, well, the turd is the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, turd, well, the turd is the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word
    A-well-a, don’t you know about the turd
    Well, everybody knows that the turd is the word
    A-well-a, turd, turd, t-turd’s the word”

    Received a nice email from the Post 313 commander, who said he’s a Vietnam vet and knows what it’s like to be shot at. He trusted Allen (not any more!) and wants to see him get what he deserves.

    He also said that Jackie has had a long working relationship (not personal) with Allen on veteran’s support efforts, hence her stalwart support for him. Much to her credit, she’s come around to realizing what Allen really is, and she’s written him off.

    Some people are such good con artists that even honest, knowledgeable, level-headed folks can be conned. This appears to be the case here.

    Hey, Greggie, do a Google search for your name and the word “Marine.” The stories about you and this blog are the top five links. Congratulations, and stay in touch. I’m sure you’ll be at least a middle- to low-middle seed in the next Stolen Valor tournament.

    I actually was a 2nd Lt in the Marines and served in 3/7 in Vietnam 1966-67. “Lt Allen” is a man without honor. I live in Marin County CA and it disappoints me that so many are talking about his good works with young men. What was it he taught them? Honor? Truthfulness? Dignity? Respect for those who served? I wouldn’t want my son to have learned anything from him except there will be people in his life that are devoid of respect and honor for those who served.

    Anyone know what rock this turd has crawled back under?

    • OIF '06-'07-'08 says:

      Actually, he has crawled under a boulder called “Cowardice”

      • Green Thumb says:

        I thought I saw this turd on a street corner with a sign asking for handouts.

        Dude looked eerily similar.

        I would not be surprised.

      Allen needs to be spending some time in the local “pound him in the ass” jail with Thor, Bubba, Julio and “Tiny”.
