Gene Edwards; phony Navy SEAL

| April 18, 2017 | 50 Comments

Our friends at Military Phonies send us their latest work on this fellow Gene Edwards, the author of the book, Confessions of a Lycanthrope. I guess he thought that if he pretended to be a Navy SEAL, it would help him sell his book.

He made up friendships with SEALs who had passed to bolster his image.

Yeah, well the Navy never heard of his monkeyass;

When he noticed that people were sniffing around, he deleted all of his social media crap, but not soon enough.

    Back to SEAL week at TAH.

    • Combat Historian says:

      Phony SEALS were mad that TAH focused on a fake ranger/OSUT reject and an ex-Army AWOL IVAW leather loser yesterday, so the fake SEALs are upping their game today…

      • 1610desig says:

        Pretty weak entry for the SEAL posers…leather boy was a real crowd pleaser!

        • HMC Ret says:

          Meanwhile, back in the imaginary world of pretend SEALs, we bring you Gene Edwards, who was a BFF of every SEAL who died in combat within the past several years, yet probably can’t name one living SEAL who he knows personally. And it is doubtful any living SEAL had ever heard of him before the recent stories brought about by his vivid imagination. It’s helpful when only one side of the story can be told b/c the other participants are no longer with us, making it difficult (impossible ?) to dispute the ‘facts’ concerning the heroism of the storyteller. Seems legit …

  2. Combat Historian says:

    Eat a boatload of dicks, you miserable fucking maggot who exploit the good names of the Honorable Dead to sell your lousy book…

  3. Former EM1/SS says:

    At least the trend of former OS’s claiming SEAL has paused.

    I am always looking for the bright side…

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Nobody pretends to be a nuke.

      Sure, there was the one RO nuke waste who pretended to be a SEAL, but nobody ever sits in a bar and goes, “Yeah, there I was, S5G in the wintertime, Spud Thunder flying around the +4 bus, and every day, there were fewer and fewer people than the day before, until it was just me and the driver.”

    • ex-OS2 says:

      “At least the trend of former OS’s claiming SEAL has paused.”

      Word, I was considering changing my screen name to avoid further embarrassment.

  4. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    He wants to be be ambiguously quiet about who he is, whatever the hell that means, he says. He also says he likes to keep his thoughts and opinions to himself. So, what does this quiet hero do? Why, he starts a blog to talk about himself, share his views, and proclaim to the world that he is a former Navy SEAL. What a knucklehead. It would be nothing but pitiful but for his recounting fictitious tales of Fallen SEALs he claims to have served with. That’s where he crosses the line and a knucklehead becomes a despicable, lying, asshole.

    • Mick says:

      Here are some more details of this guy’s ‘low profile’ phony SEAL claims from the report over at the Military Phonies website that is linked above:

      “I’ve been shot, I’ve been stabbed, I’ve had shrapnel blown almost right through me… I’ve watched as my CO was shot in the head – his brains splattered across my lap: I desperately tried in futility stuffing the intestines of my friend back into him with my hands after his abdomen had been shot open. I carried one of my men over my shoulders for nearly ten miles to an extraction while being pursued by the enemy hostiles. One by one, I’ve buried my teammates, my brothers, until there were only a few of us left.”

      The mind staggers at this outrageous, brazen, stupid bullshit. It almost renders one speechless.

      • OldManchu says:

        I’d like to slather him in some freshly butchered pig guts and kick his fucking ass for ten miles.

      • Marine 0331 says:

        Ok, I’m a Marine grunt who honestly was never a good distance runner. It always kicked my ass, but I did it. I honestly can’t recall the farthest distance we ever had to run, but this assbag’s horseshit got me thinking. Today at 56 my wife and I walk a lot but rarely walk over 5 miles and with bad knees it’s a strain sometimes. But for the life of me, where did he get the idea to say he carried a buddy 10 miles? 1 mile I could buy. I know, I know, he’s a phony SEAL and they are supposed to be as tough as real SEALs, but could a real SEAL hump for 10 miles with a dead-weigh buddy on his back? Come the fuck on dude!!!

      • HMC Ret says:

        “One by one, I’ve buried my teammates, my brothers, until there were only a few of us left.”

        And it’s very unfortunate this pretend SEAL was one of those few left. I wish him no harm, but in a perfect world people such as him would STFU. What a load this one is.

        How long before he says everything he has written was a work of fiction, part of a novel he is writing.

  5. Wilted Willy says:

    Christ, not another one! This fat fuck looks more like a walrus! You sir are a cocksucker!

  6. 2banana says:

    How come no one ever fakes they were in the Quartermaster Corps or logistics?

    Those guys make big money at places like Coke and Home Depot when they get out…those skills are what corporations desire.

    Infantry? Marine? SEAL? You can be a night security guard…

  7. 2banana says:

    This is Amazon bio. No mention of being in the Navy. Hmmmmm….

    About the Author
    Gene L Edwards has a background in occupational therapy and personal training. He has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States, and currently resides in Rockford, IL. This is his first novel.

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    Lycanthropy, eh? I have a solution to his problem.

    From ‘The Duchess of Malfi’:

    PESCARA. Pray thee, what ‘s his disease?

    DOCTOR. A very pestilent disease, my lord, They call lycanthropia.

    PESCARA. What ‘s that? I need a dictionary to ‘t.

    DOCTOR. I ‘ll tell you. In those that are possess’d with ‘t there o’erflows
    Such melancholy humour they imagine
    Themselves to be transformed into wolves;
    Steal forth to church-yards in the dead of night,
    And dig dead bodies up: as two nights since
    One met the duke ’bout midnight in a lane
    Behind Saint Mark’s church, with the leg of a man
    Upon his shoulder; and he howl’d fearfully;
    Said he was a wolf, only the difference
    Was, a wolf’s skin was hairy on the outside,
    His on the inside; bade them take their swords,
    Rip up his flesh, and try. Straight I was sent for,
    And, having minister’d to him, found his grace
    Very well recover’d.

    Well, I read a few paragraphs of his 1sr person novel, but not enough to form an opinion of it, other than no true lycanthrope feels guilt or angst about its vile deeds. They are predators. He needs to understand that.

    However, if he wants to promote his novel and himself as a writer, concocting a ridiculous fictional bio to support it somehow simply does not work very well. He would have more credence if he had not done that.

    It’s far too easy to be discredited quickly by the SVHunters, a ruthless and persistent posse, if there ever was one.

    Gotta pick your species… a wannabe wolf or a SEAL

  10. SgtMass says:

    Well it gets nice out up here in WI and another scrotum licker comes out after the thaw… 2nd one from WI in 8 days.Get all kinds of stupid when the snow melts.

  11. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Phony SEALs were pissed about the Ranger yesterday, had to step up their game….

    So that lady holding the trident….I wonder if she knows this guy is a full on mis-speaker of the truth…

  12. Mick says:

    ex-OS2:

    Another. Phony. SEAL.

    — sigh —

    You know what to do.

    Cleared hot.

  13. Green Thumb says:

    Just another “Phildosical” dude.

  14. Skippy says:

    I had to happen another seal
    Why are the flakes running from the army
    Don’t we deserve some respect

  15. Ex-Garbage Gun Shooter says:

    Perhaps our fearless leaders ought to consider imposing a “faker” tax. It seems to me that s nickel or so tax for every false claim each of these clowns make would undoubtedly result in a very effective means of reducing the National debit…

  16. HMC Ret says:

    What is it with so many of these slugs? Abdominal evisceration, splattered brains and carrying the wounded miles while evading the enemy. Referencing deceased Navy SEALs and suggesting a personal association? Are these your means to garner sympathy and respect from the military community and others? Isn’t it convenient you can reference those who are no longer with us? Why not reference some living SEALs who personally know and you and will verify your military status? That shouldn’t take long. I will expect an affirmative response within a day or two. So go ahead, start naming SEALs who will verify primary knowledge of your heroics. Or even of your existence … While at it, how about sending your 214 to Jonn? He can redact sensitive information prior to publication on TAH.

    Using horrible, graphic imagery to make money on the misfortunes of honorable American military members? This guy is really beyond pond scum. This is one of the most atrocious displays of whoredom I have seen on TAH.

    Whatever karma befalls this slug isn’t enough. How dare you use such horrible imagery of terrible things happening to honorable U.S. military members to make money! You couldn’t carry the jock of a true American military warrior. Man up and claim everything you posted is pure bullshit. You can also take comfort in knowing that until the end of time, when you are Googled, people will know you for what you are. Can you even imagine the contempt with which you are held by the military community? You have no idea. Remember: Until the end of time. Was it worth it?

  17. Ex-PH2 says:

    Tell you what: if this sofa cushion trots his ass down to the recruiter’s office, signs up for 4 to 6, no special demands, and gets his sorry bubblebutt deployed to a war zone where he does nothing but clean the mess hall, it will garner him some modicum of respect.

    And get off the werewolf guilt trip, dude. Werewolves are predators. They have no guilt. They have only two things in mind: blood and lust under the full moon at night.

    How about Paul Gettys from Due West South Carolina. He was busted but still fishing in the Bass Masters fishing tournaments. You can google his name and it all comes up about him. After he got caught he posted a letter on his face book and said it was a miss understanding. Ever sense then he been busy trying to remove his information. The Bass Masters organization said they will let him continue to fish because he wasn’t arrested and not a felon. This man needs to be busted. He’s has all these sponsors he saying. He stealing from other fishing man who could and needs these sponsorships to make it. Go after this guy down understand why he hasn’t been arrested. He such a conman.

    i was in a quatermaster outfit and dam pround of it Us Army Vietnam LZ Oasis 68/69
    if any one whats to shoot that down f— you

  21. HMC Ret says:

    I’ve found most who come here are respectful of veterans regardless of their service branch or MOS/NEC. Except the Air Force … they don’t get any slack. Oh, and the Coast Guard … them also.

    If you served honorably, I don’t care what you did. I treat all equally. Except for AF and CG, though, as stated previously.

    Bwhaaaa
