Darrin Rex Stewart; phony wounded veteran

| September 20, 2016

Darrin Rex Stewart (1)

Folks in Oregon got tired of hearing stories from Darrin Rex Stewart about his derring-do as a Special Forces medic, his combat exploits in Operation Just Cause, where he claims that he was wounded. He claims that he has PTSD and Tourettes Syndrome as a result of his service. He wears the Purple Heart cap in the photo above as proof of his combat service. Here are some close ups;

Yeah, well, not quite. He had 14 months of service in the Army as an infantryman at Fort Carson, Colorado, no jump school, no special forces training, no Ranger training, no deployments, no combat wounds, no Bronze Star Medal, no Combat Medic Badge;

    Swing and a miss, Darrin.

  2. Dapandico says:

    Another Veteran for Hillary spokes critter.

  3. PhukYoCouch says:

    And he got Tourettes Syndrome? Are there any recorded cases of combat leading to this illness? I thought that was just normal speech patterns of someone under duress in combat.

        Tim Poe’s Story was rebuked.

        • jarhead says:

          Awwwww mommy…take me back to the trailer park! Me and Darrin Stewart first gonna talk some shit. Then we goin’ on T A H and let everbody no day can join are club. Just won thang….you can join if you are full of shit and do all your typing in CAPS.

          Personal note, no offense here to those who truly suffer. Just my slightly warped sense of humor. My comments are specifically directed at military phonies. S/F

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      No, Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological disorder, not a combat-induced stress reaction. I knew someone who had it. 10-year-old kid. All he could do was honk. He was completely embarrassed by it because he could only whisper when he tried to speak. Tourette’s doesn’t always result in explosive cursing.

      I was at the grocery store yesterday, saw a woman with a service dog, and a few feet away, her son was bouncing up and down and making odd noises. That’s one form of Tourette’s.

      This jackass is running pure bullshit out of his piehole.

      • SFC D says:

        I had a neighbor that had something like Tourette’s as a result of a head injury. He was absolutely fine 95% of the time, but occasionally something would set him off and a torrent of profanity would stream out of his house that would make Gunny Hartman blush. I had to leave my own yard more than once because I didn’t want the poor guy to see me laughing. Yeah, I know I’m going to hell.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          I’m not sure, but I think that’s a different condition, Sarge. Maybe Doc Savage of IDC_SARC can answer that. It could be that your neighbor simply lost his inhibitions about letting loose a stream of invective.

          It took me a very long time to justify saying the “F” word at all.

          I will only say that Tourette’s syndrome a specific disorder that frequently starts in childhood.

          • Doc Savage says:

            Tourettes isnt completely understood ; there is a known genetic factor, and some environmental factors.

            To address what you have just brought up, Yes….TBI’s can cause symptoms and responses very similar to Tourettes.

            Neuroscience is well outside my scope, but I had to sit through the briefs at the OIF/OEF returning clinic for TBI assessment. The brain is a tricky bit of work and we still dont fully understand it.

          • HT3 '83-'87 says:

            There must have been some disease going RTC San Diego the Winter/Spring of ’83-’84 cuz I came back cursing like a motherf@#$er..damn! There it goes again! Only happens when I’m thinking my time in the service.

            Having your language straight out of the sewer isn’t Tourette’s Syndrome…its just part of life in a uniform.

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        Bullshits Syndrome

    • buddyfucker91 says:

      I actually have tourettes and I was stationed at carson (they let me join with a waiver). It’s a nuerological disorder,I was diagnosed with it at 3.

      TBI can cause sytoms very simular to toruettes.

  4. Guard Bum says:

    Who wears hats like that? Dead give away.

  5. Mayhem says:

    FFFuck ! Ass !

  6. Doc Savage says:

    This douche canoe was in my Brigade with 1/10 when I was in 1/12…..its likely his only deployments were to Pinon Canyon or NTC.

    • Claw says:

      Doc, a little info for you. Pinon Canyon wasn’t open yet when he was there.

      The inaugural rotation wasn’t until about July or August of 85.

      I know. I was there. S4 NCO for 1/12 Infantry during that time.

      • Doc Savage says:

        HHC 1/12, Med platoon. Brand spank’n new private. 84-88

        • Claw says:

          Hmmm, we may know each other then if we were to ever meet face to face. That was my timeframe also, 84-88.

          Bill Pelkey was our First Sergeant, SFC Luten was the Mortars Daddy, SFCs Richardson and Abelstadt were Support Platoon NCO’s, and some French sounding name guy (Oulette?) was the Chief Medic.

          And who could ever forget the missing link, CSM Randolph.

          • Doc Savage says:

            Gods honest truth….that period was a blur for me…med Platoon was SFC Dunks, I recall Schwartz as the Brigade CDR, No clue about the 1sg for HHC as I was sliced out to E Co and the ITV’s, PA was Chief Fischer, CSM was a tall black fella with a nasty scar across his throat.
            But, as an 18 y/o private, I had the attention span of a flea.

            • Claw says:

              Hmmm, E Co, 1SG Windler? Later the Brigade S-3 Ops Sergeant Major.

              I think the CSM you talked about was CSM Moore.

            • Claw says:

              Doc, just a small point of reference and memory jogger.

              During your/my time there, the 1st Brigade Commanders were COLs Keller, Carter, Schwartz and Jones.

              Our Battalion Commanders were LTCs Butler and Johnson.

              The main reason I can remember so many names (of officers) is because they were in the signature chain for my supply related paperwork and the NCOs were always invading my S4 Shop looking for “good trading material”, a bullshit session and free cups of coffee.

              • Doc Savage says:

                that stands to reason..you deal with those signatures on a regular basis they tend to stick in the memory…..I never had any dealings with folks at that level until I became an NCO; LTC Johnson I do recall, only because we were being briefed by him in the gym prior to an NTC rotation and he dropped a sheet of paper…he used the bayonet on the end of his rifle to stab it and retrieve it rather than bend over to get it….good times.

                • Claw says:

                  Ha Ha. It’s not just names I have stuck in my head from 30 years ago.

                  I can still whip out the Federal Stock Numbers for Deuce and A Half Oil Filters and Jeep Spark Plugs and Alternators from 45 years ago when I was a PLL Parts Clerk in the motor pool.

                  Yeah, Good Times.

          • Claw says:

            Could be wrong on the French sounding guy as Chief Medic. That could have been from my previous outfit, 1/15 Infantry in Germany.

            But anyway, to continue, SFC Maxwell was the Motor Sergeant, SFC Lind was the Mess Sergeant, SFC Stanton was the Commo Chief, and many, many more if I could think about it for awhile.

          • Snotcrow says:

            I realize that I should keep my whippersnapper mouth shut – and since I will sound like a phony.. I am impressed by your memories gents.

            I am a decade younger than you guys and My military career started almost two decades after yours and yet, I can only remember a few key players and a dozen people I served with. I remember all places and stuff, but people.. only the people that i was very close to. But you guys remember the whole sch’bang.

            • Doc Savage says:

              Memories are odd things….I can tell you the Bumper number of the first M113 I drove, but I barely recall what I had for breakfast.

              • 2/17 Air Cav says:

                That is so true. I distinctly recall minutiae and forget some pretty big shit. And it’s not my age. One of the things I recall telling myself in my 20s was, ‘If I ever get to be old, I hope I don’t think that age has screwed up my memory because it sucks now.’ Well, I’m old.

            • 2/17 Air Cav says:

              It depends. One day here, I couldn’t (and still can’t) remember my BCT and Jonn shot back with his immediately. I can remember the faces of my drill sergaents. I can remember the faces of the guys in my platoon and most of their names and where they were from. But to tell you what was on our guidon, I’d have to find and open that book. BTW, I hear that those books are no longer free, that they have to be bought nowadays.

            • HMC Ret says:

              Snotcrow: I got ya. I remember the number of my state-issued drivers license number from the 60s. Not license plate … the license. I can remember, maybe, the names of 40-50 people from 23 years active service. I can remember one CO and only b/c I had him as CO at two different commands. Department Heads? Two of over a dozen come to mind. Coworkers? Too few to matter. Don’t get it. Literally, I don’t get it.

              • David says:

                I remember useless stuff from years ago (my 16 digit Missouri driver’s license, the Twist-o-Flex watch band patent number memorized on a bar bet) but often forget the names of people I met a week ago.No mystery to it, I think it’s because I don’t care.

      • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

        PCMS same as PTSD. Sounds legit. Especially if they told him to go count how many windmills were there…

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          He might be trying to get money from having to do PMCS on vehicles, it’s traumatic to pus-nutted no-load candyasses like him.

  7. OAE CPO USN Ret says:

    Oregon? Next thing you know he will be relocating to Florida.

    Well hello Deja Vu, long time no see.

  8. sj says:

    No dog? No vest? 14 mo and still a PVT?

  9. Hondo says:

    Hmm. Discharged at 1st permanent duty station, after less than one year of active duty, as an E1.

    I’m thinking that his departure from the military very likely was neither his idea nor on particularly good terms.

    • Claw says:

      Yes Sir. I’m thinking he spent too much time at the Peppermint Lounge and cruising Nevada Avenue somewhere around the intersection of Nevada and Moreno Streets and the Jack in the Box that was there by the railroad tracks.

      The south end of Colorado Springs could be just like Fayettenam at times, especially back then in 83/84.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Rex Phonionis.

  11. Mick says:

    Oh my God; why won’t this phony hero shit stop?

    Is it endless?

    • Hondo says:

      My guess would be yes, Mick.

      I’m reasonably certain that years after Thermopylae there were more who claimed to have “been there with Leonidas, but fought their way out and got away” than actually died during the battle.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Trojan War hero: Oh, hi, honey. Yeah, I was gone 12 years with Ulysses and Achilles and Ajax. It was pure hell, but look at all this pretty stuff I didn’t bring home. I had to walk home from Ilium. Have you met my new kids?

    • jason says:

      it doesn’t. stolen valor has been around for as long as there have been wars. all you can do is be on guard against it. I am just fascinated by it, because I have seen numerous cases of it in real life. Just human nature with a lot of people.

      • Hondo says:

        Yep. Some people will lie about whether it’s raining outside when they’re standing right beside a window that shows everyone it’s a clear day.

        • Graybeard says:

          Careful there Hondo, you may end up with your PTSD causing you to commit suicide with two shots to the back of the head if Team Hillary reads that.

  12. OldManchu says:

    I caught the prickly heat rash during the invasion. Does me get some Purple Heart too?

    What an asshole. Good service just isn’t good enough for some.

  13. SKYJUMPER says:

    I knew I smelled a rat!!

    Reminds me of an old joke.

    Guy to pirate: “Where are your buccaneers?”

    Pirate to guy: “On top of my buckinhead”.

  14. Claw says:

    Holy Shit!! A three time award Combat Medic?

    Hmmm, don’t think so, unless you’re about 80 something years old.

    The mustard stain on the jump wings is a nice touch though.

    1/10 Infantry Golden Rifle my ass.

    • Claw says:

      As a side note to this, the Wikipedia entry and the official notification letter from the Army Medical Command Historian, there were only two (2)(yes, two) known awardees of the Third Award CMB.

      Unfortunately , those two have passed. Their awards covered WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

      • USAF Ret says:

        So I guess the Command Historian needs to update his records and this POS to do like the other 2 and pass away also.

  15. Graybeard says:

    And, again, another pathetic liar with self-esteem issues who wants to hide his insecurity with fictions.

    Sad.

  16. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Emmett L Kines also received a Purple Heart. He Fell at Tarawa and just returned home to West Virginia. The appearance of this POS and that Marine in consecutive threads just makes me want to knock the crap out of Stewart more than I usually do when one of these slimy slugs falsely claims a Purple Heart.

  17. OldManchu says:

    Oh no. This guy has a grenade marksmanship badge???!?

    Jonn please remove my comments before he sees them and drops in from the sky to kill me.

  18. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Dude wasn’t even there long enough to find the pisser at S&S.

  19. Todd davis says:

    I usually refrain from commenting on these fakers but this one hits home. I deployed. With an ADA unit during OIF 1. Got tasked out to drive truck in support of 5th SFG. Saw some bad shit. No PH no valor award. And I yes I have At hat , ring and plaque given to me by some great guys. Suffer from PTSD. And have a great team at VA looking after me. I guess this grinds my gears because. I’m sick and tired of these phonies who treat PTSD as some sort of look at me I’m a hero thing. its a pain in the ass everyday just to maintain. To take meds. And these losers who can’t be satisfied with serving honorably no you got to have some Sexy Mos. it’s really depressing to see someone who steals from us. To say he has Tourette’s. When I’m dealing with tardive dysconesia . Wow man get a life instead of inventing one. My 2 cents

    • lily says:

      It’s obvious he doesn’t even understand what PTSD really does to a person. A lot of those who have PTSD wouldn’t even be able to wear a hat with medals like that since those things can trigger flash backs.

      • Todd Davis says:

        Ive worn my hat 3x since 03 and only for sentimental value. And only once in public for a photo shoot . I do not believe in posting my rack or talking about specifics about Iraq . I have a wife and therapists for that. Yes PTSD is painful it is nerve wracking. It takes a toll and VA meds seem to make somethings worse. To have this clown use it as a sympathy ploy is to me no different than faking cancer. So my advice to him is if you can’t be satisfied with your actual service. Then shut up. Take off that hat. And don’t try and soil what others have done

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Well, Todd, he might well have PTSD. As I understand it, neither combat deployments nor combat is required for the Free Cheese. And once the Free Cheese is served, not many Vets say, “Okay, thanks, I’m good now.” The system is a mess and, as I say, this joker could well be receiving his portion of the Free Cheese.

          • Todd Davis says:

            And you know that’s a Damn shame. Makes you wonder that if there is no traumatic event. Why they say these clowns have PTSD. Smh. Here’s what makes me really mad is 1.sittting in a VA waiting room listening to some guy coach another guy about how to act at a C and P exam. Or going to group therapy thinking. This may help me and all they want to bitch about is benefits! I’ decided to start with a peer support counseler after that. I’m hurting. And when I see these guys faking to get a check. While I deal with significant issues it angers and depresses me. I hate these guys and their bullshit heroic stories. And I swear to God I got guys in there with no Appts in the waiting room and that’s all they do is pump themselves up. Sorry for the rant.

            • 2/17 Air Cav says:

              No apology needed. The system exists to be gamed. Two minutes googling will reveal how certain questions should be answered for a minimum share of the cheese. It is a shame, if for no other reason than Vets who do need help TODAY have to wait in line behind the bullshitters. I wish you well.

            • Ex-PH2 says:

              Todd, writing helps. Put some of that angst and energy into writing. Put these phonies to shame.

              I could claim a load of that from putting up with mysogynist gay sailors who hated women for nearly 6 years, but it kind of made me who I am today. And it was nearly 50 years ago.

              My life is good, and I’d guess that most of their lives are absolute crap.

              The creative arts are wonderful therapy, you don’t have to listen to jerks telling each other how to take advantage of the uninformed, and you may come up with something wonderful.

              • Todd Davis says:

                Thank you guys it means a lot. I never thought about writing , but it seems like a real good idea. I read a lot. And I think writing maybe good therapy. Think I’ll buy me a journal. And see how it goes

                • 11B-Mailclerk says:

                  The arts can be a powerful and positive outlet for the dark things that dwell in the dark corners of the wounded soul. Likewise, for the light that shines brightly from the heights of the human soul.

                  I spent about twelve years of weekends working with a buddy who make knives by Hammer and forge work, and lots of Damascus (aka pattern-welding.)

                  Almost any anger issues one may posses can be vented to good purpose by bashing hot steel into functional beauty. Likewise, the desire to leave behind something positive (look! Useful tool!) a place to harness compulsive behavior (polishing), etc, etc, etc.

                  I retired cop I know paints landscapes. Furthest thing from homies and hoods he could find, I suspect.

                  Till the soil and grow your own food.

                  Sing your heart out. Cant sing? Thrash on a guitar or horn.

                  Stand up and crack wise, and let everyone else purge their angst and yours, laughing with you about really sick shit that sounded like mundane stuff.

                  Dont let that monster in the darkness whisper garbage in your ear. Rob its power and let it flow forth into an art.

            • Sparks says:

              No apologies needed here brother. Turds like Stewart are what give you guys with the real deal a bad rap and make it harder to get good care at many VA facilities. Welcome here anytime my friend.

            • SFC D says:

              This is the perfect place to rant. Cut loose!

              • Skippy says:

                That’s what I do, I’ve had to learn not to let these stupid piles of ???
                Get the best of yeh.. I’m a believer in karma I’ve seen it to many times now since hanging out here and it’s real..

              • Ex-PH2 says:

                It can be so much fun to let fly, can’t it?

                When you have a place like this, where you do get a chance to chew up some of these fakers, it does let out some of the pressure.

                • Todd Davis says:

                  It sure does

                  • Sparks says:

                    Todd, when I found this site several years ago it was a passing interest. Soon it became a sore spot for a lot of emotions. To see people claim things I saw others die for upset me to a rage. Soon though, I learned to rail and rant (at times) and it helped in a lot of ways. Not just making these ass hats Google famous but even more, for me, in the remembering of the best of those I had loved and lost.

        • lily says:

          I was with 2/44 ADA and reassigned to 2/327 infantry regiment for a deployment to Kosovo in year 2000. I did get stuck mostly doing infantry work even though I wasn’t trained for it much. My squad leader managed to get our squad into helping back up SF in arresting some high value targets. I have had a lot of stress issues since that deployment. I never got PTSD compensation. It took me about 10 years to get the hang of it mostly on my own. I can’t have my medals in a shadow box or stickers on my car or any type of that stuff. It generally causes me to have flash backs. Once I remove the items the flash backs stop. So I’m with you that PTSD isn’t something to hold up as a “woe is me banner”. If anything it will just isolate me more if I mention it to people. I don’t tell anyone. I have talked to a counselor at the vet center and she says I’m doing the right things to manage it.

    • Wilted Willy says:

      Todd, first off, thank you for your service. I have a brother pos that Jonn has so nicely exposed, this fucker is also claiming a Purple Heart that he didn’t earn. Along with getting a $3K+ check every month for his phony PTSD 100% disability. I still wonder how you can get that when you have never seen a day in combat? I have been trying for over a year to get good old David “Doc” Shrum arrested and put back in prison where he belongs. For now, the best I can do is keep up his google fame!

  20. lily says:

    Kind of sad when he can’t even make sharp shooter badge.

  21. Ex-PH2 says:

    Are you guys kidding me? You can catch the PTSD just from a visit to the recruiter’s office. Didn’t you know that?

    Are they going to come up with a vaccine for that particular strain of PTSD, the one that you get when you dindunuffin but you wannagetsumthin?

    Since there are plenty of people who really have it, like the poster Todd Davis and others who just deal with it, it’s pissing me off, too.

    • Bnmarkos says:

      I caught the PTSD from Ft. Wainwright…….. I might do better than the $134 per month from the VA.

    • Todd Davis says:

      When I first applied for compensation for physical and mental issues back in 2007. The rules regarding evidence and proof that a traumatic event in service. We’re more stringent. You had to show proof of deployment , in service treatment. A lot more evidence was required. Va wanted to see a pattern of continuous. Treatment once you were out. About 2009 the President ordered those rules relaxed. To make it easier for those to get SC for PTSD. Turned out it was both good and bad. Good because some vets who really needed to get SC. Got it. Bad because now you got clowns who didn’t deploy or heard of something bad happen were awarded SC for PTSD. It left a big door for posers to walk through.

      • Bnmarkos says:

        I’m glad I got something, but still bitter at the system. OIF 06-08, OEF 11-12, 1 PH from that. My VA SC reads something like tinnitus 10%, TBI 0%, degenerative disc disease L4-L5-S1 0%, binocular vision disorder 0% = $134 per month… That’s my ATF money, sans firearms now I have a little one on the way. I’ve seen fatbodies get med-out severence and they get thousands per month with the BS PTSD rating being a fobbit. The VA sets it up to reward bullshiters and embelishers. BTW thank toi for your service Todd, BZ.

        • Todd Davis says:

          Thank you for your service as well. I’ just want you to know I feel your frustrations about VA ratings. I would encourage you that if you feel you were underrated by VBA not to give up. You know how bad things can for you on a daily basis. Don’t stop until you get the compensation you rightly deserve. Remember you are your own best advocate. It’s not the same as lying it means standing up for yourself.

        • Sparks says:

          You guys have to remember the difference between you and the posers. You…are honest. They…are bullshit artists extraordinaire. And as we all know from our time in uniform of listening to these asshats, just like ole Darrin Stewart here, Bullshitters gonna Bullshit.

        • ChipNASA says:

          One thing Bnmarkos

          Try and talk to the DAV and see if they can’t help you.
          I got 10% for the same things but they went back to the VA over an 18 month period and resubmitted twice and got me up to 30%. it was free and they *REALLY* know what they are doing.

          When I got my first check and back pay,(disability), I paid off a DAV life membership.

          • Ex-PH2 says:

            That should be addressed to anyone who has trouble with the VA, ChipNASA.

            And yeah, get the DAV working on your behalf. They know how to get things done.

          • Bnmarkos says:

            I went through the VA advocate moph, at 10%. I’ll try and re-submit with DAV. Issue is now I’ve been offered an active guard 15t slot. I was 95b/31b active so another AIT. No idea how this effects VBA if I choose to accept. Still debating leaving current state LEO job for guard.

  22. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Another “Call of Booty – Anal Buttsekks Warrior” rump riding ranger, with special quals in gerbil felching. I wonder if he knows a certain former resident of Oregon that was recently disbarred by the California State Bar?

    • Sparks says:

      Felching…Now that’s one you just don’t think of every day. But in Darrin’s case, yea, felching with a straw is right up his alley, or partner’s ass.

  23. LastBrotherHome says:

    Jonn,
    The close ups on the hat provided me with a view of something that ought to be known. Above the hat pins of the Purple Heart and Bronze Star is one that most people probably don’t recognize. The star with leaves around it in a circular shape. That is a Gold Star Lapel Pin, and is given to family members of fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. So, not only is he pretending to be a wounded warrior, he’s also, from all I can ascertain at this point, pretending to have lost a family member to war. Something to keep in mind if you ever see that item again.

  25. Graybeard says:

    Watching my son deal with true PTSD after Iraq (although, thank God, a mild form), I wouldn’t mind posting some trauma to these poseurs.

    But sooner or later, their lies will catch up to them and sweet justice will be served.

  26. David says:

    Had a young kid do a plumbing call at my house who was a legit-sounding ex-Ranger – said when he got out, part of the processing was filling out application of PTSD diagnosis/benefits – said everyone in his unit was routed through it. He said he has 100% disability from it and is medically retired…while working a a master plumber. Big $$$. He did not volunteer this, I had to more or less coax it out of him.

    For our friend Darrin…wait for it – wearing them to honor someone departed, threats of a lawsuit, sockpuppuet – in 3, 2, …

    • jarhead says:

      Something wrong here David. A 100% rating for PTSD under any circumstances would require that you not be able to work, for any number of reasons. Based on your comments, I’d bet he is NOT rated 100%. Twenty bucks says so. UNLESS, all his work is paid under the table and the annual info sheet the V A sends to all rated at 100% is filled in with a big zero….where it says “Did you work the past year and if so, what was the total amount of income you received?”
      Make that $40, after thinking about it. For that matter, make the bet with him on your own. Tell him to produce a 100% PTSD rating or $40. I will personally pay you the $40 myself if he can produce it and still show gainful income.

      • Sparks says:

        Agreed jarhead and I’ll even kick-a-buck! If he can show you a 100% VA PTSD disability AND a righteous W-2, I’d up it to $100 bucks and I’ll pay.

      • Skippy says:

        jarhead. What he is saying maybe true I’ve met vets from this
        OIF/OEF period that are getting 70-80 percent out the door
        No question asked they are not getting the P&T on the 100
        But the VA hands it out like candy now

  27. Dave Hardin says:

    Another goofy bastard that spends his free time sucking bat shit off cave walls. From that empty place where I used to have a heart…eat a dick loser.

    These type of guys like to sniff the stink finger after playing with their hemorrhoids. I just wish they wouldn’t do it in public.

    I just hope he doesn’t get a puppy so he can sniff its ass all day.

    • Sparks says:

      I don’t know why but the term “goofy bastard” just makes me laugh my ass off. Plus the smelling his stink finger and sniffing the puppy’s ass just made me blow coffee on my keyboard! Thanks Dave for a great morning wake up!

    • Skippy says:

      Well he is a expert at using his “””Fourth Point of Contact”’ for thinking

    • jarhead says:

      Must you insult all us puppy dog ass sniffers? Keep it up and I’ll get a recent T A H combat vet who writes in all caps to jump in. BTW, one of his multiple aliases is “Sniffer”.
      Your reference to “Goofy” always makes me think of the old joke. Minnie Mouse was dating Goofy, and she ended up taking Pluto to court for publicly accusing her of being a bumbling idiot. Pluto responded to the judge, “Your honor, all I said was Minnie was f___ing goofy!”

  28. SKYJUMPER says:

    While I was working in the shop this morning, It dawned on me that I could probably file a claim for “Turrets Syndrome”.

    I think I caught it from constantly getting in & out of the turret cupola on the M60A3 when I was the TC/PSG all those years.

    Wonder what percent the VA would pony up for that??
    Hmmmmmm.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, when you go for that, make sure that you engage in odd and very annoying physical movements, such as slapping yourself while you’re jumping up and down, and make strange noises that mean nothing. You can tell them, between honking sessions, that you got it when you hit your head on the can o’ peas.

  29. Skippy says:

    Odd.. I swear, I had a DI in basic that had Tourettes Syndrome we called him crombe dome
    This stupid Fucker is probably collecting 100 VA benefits, while we have brothers and sisters around

    Went through his friends list and shared this article with every one of his coworkers and every veteran on his list.

    Perhaps he’ll get the fame he so desires.

  31. aGrimm says:

    I signed up for VA care last March. Upon interview with primary doctor, she asks and computer inputs my history. She got to the PTSD type questions and I responded, “VN was the best thing in the world for me. It put my head on square and taught me what was important in life – family, God and country. I went on to a lovely life of serving others and having a wonderful family life”. The look on her face was priceless; something akin to “nobody ever says that here at the VA”.

    I can smell Stewart from here – gangrenous rot is like that. Don’t walk behind him; the pus oozing from his brain is infectious.

  32. thebesig says:

    That ungrateful guy earned the Army Service Ribbon, but wasn’t satisfied with that. Does he realize that not everybody in the United States, let alone the world, gets the Army Service Ribbon? Sheesh, some people’s kids. 🙄

    • Claw says:

      But the ASR was awarded without a “V” Device, therefore the subsequent lies were inevitable.

      That ASR don’t mean nothing without the “V” Device./sarc

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Army Service Ribbon, OH, you mean my Expert Floor Buffer Badge?

  33. AnotherPat says:

    Pretty sure this is the same guy:

    During OPERATION JUST CAUSE, Darrin Rex Stewart was licensed in Oregon as a Barber, a Nail Technician, an Esthetician and Hair Design.

  34. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Darrin Rex Stewart LIED about his service to get freebies and other things he wouldn’t have, eh?
    Darrin Rex Stewart looks like a limp-wristed MEAT GAZER.

  35. Graybeard says:

    Darrin Rex Stewart isn’t worthy of cleaning the dog shiite off of PFC Carlos Segovia’s shoes or General Cone’s dog’s nether regions.

    Sad when a 19-year-old has already proved to be more of a man than Derrin Rex can dream of being.

  36. Ex-PH2 says:

    Just a shame, isn’t it? That DARRIN REX STEWART even breathes the same air as this Marine?

  37. jarhead says:

    Am I missing something here? The double amputee I understand. But the Marine in uniform without hand over heart or saluting, that puzzles me. The NBA dude beside him, even four years ago…..whadda ya expect?

    • Claw says:

      Yep, Jarhead, I think you are missing something. Not trying to be sarcastic, but:

      Indoors, in uniform, without cover, the position of attention is the proper stance for rendering honors during the National Anthem.

      Note the Air Force Airman further to the right in the picture.

      Both the Gunnery Sergeant and the Airman are performing honors correctly.

      • Claw says:

        P.S. Although I think the GySgt should have stood a little closer to the razor prior to having his picture taken.

        • jarhead says:

          Thanks for the correction Claw. At my age, the problem is still CRS.
          One thing I NEVER forget is this: When I think my day is going bad, all I have to do is look at others, such as the double amputee and realize my day was nothing compared to his EVERY day.

  38. Todd Davis says:

    When I came to this site today I was in a bad place. After reading you guys posts here and blowing off some steam my self I have to say I feel much better. I was holding in some anger and frustration. About phonies and I guess this clown really tripped a trigger. Jonn knows I don’t like to go negative but I think cutting Loose every now and then is a great stress reliever. Thank you so much everybody for your input. I think I’m gonna do this more often.

    • Graybeard says:

      You’re welcome any time Todd. We may bust each other’s chops from time to time, but we’re here to support you however we can.

        Thank you Brother I will. It’s just the right combo of honesty a humor i need.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Wait!

        Todd Davis doesn’t know about the Weekend Open Thread.

        The crush to be FIRST! The scramble, the kicking, pushing and shoving! The pinching and eye-gouging!

        He’s toast!

        • SKYJUMPER says:

          Todd, and that’s just Ex-PH2 doing all of that stuff!! 😉

          Us guys, if we aren’t first just say “Oh Shucky Darn” and and move on hoping we can be first the next Saturday.

          • Claw says:

            A small correction. It’s on Fridays is when the WOT happens, not Saturday.

            Usually sometime around 1100 hrs, Eastern Time Zone. (Hint, Hint, Todd)

            The scramble to be first can be quite vigorous at times.

            • Claw says:

              Geez, nobody picked up on the time I posted and told me I dicked up.

              Todd, the Weekend Open Thread (WOT) usually appears about 1300 hrs (Eastern Time) on Fridays, not 1100 hrs. Being two hours behind out here in the Mountain Time Zone sometimes screws with my CRS riddled mind.

              Mea Culpa.

    Problem with guys like this is very few purple hearts where given up until OEF and OIF. Have a guy in my office who after seeing that I have a PH on my licence plates he tells me he has two from Bosnia. Don’t have the hart to call him out but a total blow tard.

    • Duece Biggalo says:

      To correct this I meant not many PHs were given since Vietnam. Few were given in Somilia, Panama, and DS.

        Standing offer: pass me the requisite info thru Jonn (full name, DOB, POB, service, approx dates, and – if available legally – SSN) and I’ll be happy to file the FOIA request.

    • Mick says:

      You say that you’ve got a guy in your office who is claiming TWO Purple Hearts from Bosnia?

      By all means; call him out on this ASAP. Ask him precisely when/where and under what circumstances he was wounded TWICE in Bosnia.

      We’d really like to know more about this.
