Charles Louis Hopkins; phony Vietnam vet Marine

| December 23, 2016

Charles Hopkins

This fellow, Charles Louis Hopkins, was on the old POW Network website. According to folks who know him, he’s back at his old story-telling since that website came down;

Hopkins POW

He said he was captured close to Da Nang in 1968, and spent 32 days as a POW in a tiger cage. When asked – since he had been wounded was he drawing any VA benefits and he said, “No” because he had resigned from the Marine Corp and worked for the CIA. He said it was a long story and did not have time to discuss at this time. He also mentioned that he knew Sam Johnson and had discussed things with him. Said he was from Covington, Tennessee and knew Nels Tanner. Works with Shriners.

2008 – Claims he won the Navy Cross saving his recon team near Da Nang in 1968. He claims to have been a Captain in the Marines at the time.

2011 – Charles Louis Hopkins claims to have been a Marine, also receiving the Navy Cross. If you research where he has worked, where he went to college when he was in the Marine Corps. when he got married and had children the timelines do not match.

He continues in his life as nothing is wrong! He has so stated “They can investigate me all they want to, they will find nothing.” Also he claims to have worked for the CIA….he thinks is so smart that no one can bring him down. He continues to get away with his lies.

We got an email the yesterday at that confirms that he’s back at telling his stories.

Hopkins FOIA

He avoided the Vietnam-era draft, now he wants to be a POW.

    You know what he is…he’s a Most Illustrious Ass Master for sure.

  2. Combat Historian says:

    Since he resigned from the Marines and joined the CIA, all his service and personnel records have been destroyed and erased. Boy Howdy! Ain’t that convenient…

    • Joseph Williams says:

      That is Big Time Bullshit ! He would have a DD214 from the Marines for jointing the CIA. Any time time remaining on his enlistment including time in the RVN. He would be requited to serve. Joe

  3. Martinjmpr says:

    From the picture posted above it seems he is also serving as the Lord High Chancellor of England so at least he’s got that going for him.

    • sj says:

      Future posers will be all over getting a necklace like that and calling it a foreign bravery award. That, a Doo Rag, and a Dog. Epic.

      • Deplorable B Woodman says:

        Don’t forget the big bike and the leather vest with numerous patches. And the tatts. Gotta have tatts.

          I want that talisman! It surely could ward off the devil himself if for nothing else than extremely poor taste

    One of our Spinal Cord Injury patients in VA Hospital was a Mason. I arranged to have a local lodge come out to the VA and visit with him from time to time. Interesting organization. He was a member of the Prince Hall Lodge.

  5. Dave Hardin says:

    It seems the Masons are not having a good day. Nothing is more repugnant than a phony POW.

    I can not help but wonder where the family members of these shit stains are. Do they just go along with this bullshit? Exposed as a fake piece of shit and then they just keep on going.

    This is why Jonn does not take down cases after they are exposed. Shit will always float back to the surface sooner or later.

    Grateful for all the work the POW network had done in years past.

      Who’s she?

      • IDC SARC says:

        I dunno, but she looks to have polycystic ovarian syndrome

        • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

          Ballduster McSoulpatch’s ghey two hole working pole smoker – brought to infamy here in 2012… discharged from the USAF for Personality Disorder, claims that he was a SEAL.

          He’s probably blown a few seals in his lifetime…

  6. Andy Kravetz says:

    What is that thing around his neck? Is that a military decoration or not?

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      I think it’s a Mason thing, Andy.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Looks like a Masonic Medallion, maybe the Grand Lodge in his State ought to hear about his asshattery?

    • MSGT_RET says:

      That would be his Illustrious Grand Master insignia for the Masons.

      • Grand Poobah of the Bovine manure lodge is what I believe he is wearing ??? or the similar looking “piecceuvfece cross”…..
        a hero and civic minded citizen in his own mind, the whole “good ole boi” in a white cowboy hat & Mason package …. is so fake, its pathetic, even laughable and on its way to the internet fame of shame
        or maybe he was auditioning for the cowboy doode in a “village people” tribute band ???? and that’s his portfolio pic. ????
        trying not to be judgmental of course

      • 26Limabeans says:

        I put myself through college working for a mason as a tender. Where’s my necklace?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      In the piece from POW Network it says “Most Illustrious Grand Master of Texas” . Maybe it’s time to ask them what they know about his lying?

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Correction: Maybe it’s time to ask the Grand Lodge of Texas…

        • Club Manager says:

          I’ll take that for my action since its been boring with everything shutting down for the holidays. As a FYI, when these dirt bags are posted here and there is a link to an organization or city, I routinely pass the info along and include the local media and Bcc: Jonn to ensure they do not slip through the cracks.

      Welcome fellow Rotorhead. Marine chew chief on UH34D. HMM 362 June 66 thru Sept 68. Ka Ha ,Phu Bai and Marble Moutain. Joe

  8. MSGT_RET says:

    (He has so stated “They can investigate me all they want to, they will find nothing.”)

    He wasn’t lying about that part. 🙂

  10. Wilted Willy says:

    I really hate this cocksucker! I say give me to the Taliban and give him a goat in heat to keep him company! There is nothing more deplorable than a phony POW! I pray that he is ass raped by the barbed cock of Satan, many, many times! Enjoy your Google fame now you shit stain cocksucker!

  11. OWB says:

    Hmmmm. Used to be that Masonry took lies such as this clown’s very seriously. Hope that they still do.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    So a draft dodger wants to be thought of as some sort of heroic sort, does he?

    I say we give him the chance. Send him off to Syria and let him lead the way into the fight for Aleppo.

    Do you guys want to see drone shots of ISIS suicide bombers blowing themselves up? Ran across it by accident last night. Wasting perfectly good explosives on a couple of braindead robots. We should encourage them to continue, send them to decoy targets, right? Right?

  13. NotaLeg says:

    What in the hell is he wearing? Royal order of ass-wipe?

  14. 26Limabeans says:

    Another phony with a hat.
    Him and James Rice make a pair.
    It’s always nice to compare phonies using the handy Stolen Valor tab. It gives casual readers a quick reference to similar asshatery.

  15. Green Thumb says:

    Claiming to be a POW.

    This maggot is on par with a toilet brush.

  16. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Phony Viet of the Nam vet… probably like himself a huge bowl of Cream of Sum Yung Guy soup… made by Lon Duk Dong who use to live in Ho Lee Phuck village.

    Assclown… another Mason dragging the good of the organization down by engaging in his dumbfuckery.

  17. Starbux says:

    Why does it seem like all these people who do secret squirrel stuff “cant seem to talk about it,” yet they always seem to talk about it.

  18. Rich says:

    I didnt read everything yes that thing around his neck has to do with the masons and I hope someone sees it that knows how to kick his ass out.

  19. John Marselis says:

    The gold neckwear is symbolic of the Exalted Ruler of an Elks Lodge. It has nothing to do with the Masons.

  20. I am willing to bet he was one of those pussies that packed up and went to Canada in that era. Or in
    San Francisco singing Kumbaya with Tim Leary and one of those assholes that spat at us when we got off the ship (USNS Barett).
    And being lower than pond scum, with his life not accomplishing anything positive or productive resulted in him turning into a Walter Mitty. Illusions of grandeur every hour of his waking mind. So much that he probably believes his bullshit himself.
    Why has nobody from the VFW or DAV in or near his town brought this phony scumbag into the local public’s attention? eg……news, his work, the local chapter of masons, etc. It wasn’t that long ago when public shaming was how scum like this was dealt with making the life for these bottom dwellers so miserable they and their whole family had to keep on moving until they found someplace where nobody knew about them.
    He may not have a conscience but I am sure somebody in his family has to have one.
    Just my thoughts……carry on.

  21. Deckie says:

    What’s that around his neck? He looks like the manager of a WCW heavyweight champion from back in the 1990s…

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      It’s a Masonic Medallion. If you look at the piece from POW Network it says he was a “Most Illustrious Grand Master of Texas”, meaning he used his STOLEN VALOR to claw his way to something he does not deserve.

    • Green Thumb says:

      I bet its all fake and shit.

      Probably turns green when exposed to water.
