Glenn Michael Rowe; phony SEAL

| September 11, 2017 | 68 Comments

Another Monday, another phony SEAL from our partners at Phony Warriors. This one, Glenn Rowe, also claims a Silver Star and a Purple Heart;

His local fire station even included him in a handpainted mural to honor his SEAL-ship;

Yeah, but no. According to his records, he served 30 years in the Navy and retired as a DKCS – an E-8 Disbursing clerk. No SEAL training, no parachute training, just a clerk;

He’s real sorry that he was caught, though;

    DK + IC = …

  2. Ret_25X says:

    Wow…did 30 and retired as an E-8 and had to make up stories…

    He had every opportunity to be a life taker but decided being a clerk was more his speed. Full respect for that…not everyone can or should be a kinetic type.

    But in God’s name, stop lying about it! Everyone who matters knows intuitively that the lie is what it is…

    You dumb stupid ass fucking son of a bitch!

  4. 26Limabeans says:

    Will there be door prize for the one millionth fake SEAL to appear on TAH? Gotta be getting close to that day.

  5. Club Manager says:

    Nothing to be ashamed of having served as a clerk, they support mission. As for only E-8 in 30, he joined as Nam was winding down and retired before 9-11 and I imagine that was a period of slow rank. If the awards listed span his entire career, that indicates he was a lackluster sailor at best. No MSM, even at retirement but he did receive the prestigious NDSM. I will endeavor to pass this post on to his local fire department.

    • Doc Savage says:

      Not being a water warrior; is an MSM considered normal for retirement at E-8 in the Navy?

      • Silentium Est Aureum says:

        As a Command Master Chief or such, that seems to be pretty standard.

        You would think a 30-year career would have rated at least a couple of Navy Commendation Medals, at least. But whateva.

        I would have thought the Chief next to him would have delivered a swift throat punch when he saw the jump wings above the Trident and ESWS all stacked together.

      • Club Manager says:

        I received my oak leaf cluster when I retired as a CW2 from the Army at 20. Then again, I was a WW1 (i.e. water walker first class :>) #1 son received a MSM when he retired as a MSgt from the Air Force at 20 and he was an achiever. You would think any salt worth a shit would receive one after 30.

        • IDC SARC says:

          The Navy doesn’t give out MSMs to senior enlisted the way other services do IME.

          I’ve seen plenty of good MCPOs without MSMs.

          • IDC SARC says:

            …in contrast most SFCs and above when they leave here where I work on Bragg get MSMs.

          • Mick says:

            In my experience, it was pretty much the same in the Marine Corps regarding MSMs for senior enlisted Marines.

            Every once in a while you’d see a SgtMaj or MGySgt with an MSM, but it wasn’t very common, and those who had them had typically done a tour at HQMC or Quantico.

            That said, I honestly don’t remember many MSMs being given out to anyone out in FMF units at the battalion/squadron level.

  6. IDC SARC says:

    At the fukking graveside?!…..boot to the head!


  7. AnotherPat says:

    The picture of him on the Mural wearing those dark sunglasses? H.I.L.A.R.I.O.S. Why is that song “Three Blind Mice”going thru my head?😎

  8. QM1 says:

    Hmmm, was a Senior Chief or an E-8?

  9. Green Thumb says:


    And this ass clown appears to wearing his phony finery at a funeral.

    Extra turd.

  10. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    “I’m just a clerk, just a lowly, lowly clerk.”

  11. IDC SARC says:

    Looks like 2 purple hearts..and I see an RVN Vietnam Campaign Medal poking through his fruit salad, so he also apparently claims Vietnam Veteran Status. All sorts of wrong…and a phony tattoo WTFO?

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    He gets to retire as a Senior Chief? Is he the asshole who lost my frakkin’ payroll record twice and refused to look for it?

    Was he ever stationed in Philadelphia?

  13. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    That pisspants no-load pus-nuts bologna pony riding booger-munching thumb sucking bed wetting glittery gargoyle gonad-gazing bumfucked toad shit needs to have his ass kicked up between his ears.

  14. Daisy Cutter says:

    There I was…

    …knee deep in pencil shavings and adding machine tape on midnight before a payday, jamming through last second pay allotments and NJP penalty adjustments.

    Suddently, there was a knock at the door. I prayed for a mission, and for my sins they gave me one. Delivered it up like room service. When it was over, I’d never want another.

    “SADDLE UP” the general’s errand boy yelled through the door. “Pull up your zipper and grab your flippers, this one’s with the SEAL team!”

  15. Old 1SG, US Army (Retired) says:

    Even a crusty old soldier knows that jump wings would not be worn over the SEAL Trident… geezz and he was in the Navy?

    What a douche bag!

  16. lmn0351 says:

    getting really tired of these posers.rot in hell you cocksucker

  17. Rock says:

    At least he made sure to pin on his ESWS.

    Always remember, the Black Shoe Navy is the REAL NAVY. Go Surface Warriors!

  18. Window Licker says:

    Anybody notice the SEAL trident tattoo on his right arm? Look closely. This dipshit is into it balls deep. He does not just put on a uniform, he lives the lie.

  19. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    30 years & out as an E8 is a pretty sweet deal, and then he steps on his dick with this wannabe SEAL bullshit. Not enough ‘at-a-boys’, back slaps, and free beers coming his way being a pay clerk, so he hit the local flea market & The Internets to buy him his “hero kit”. Fuck you, Chief…just fuck you!

  20. Guard Bum says:

    I know it isnt right but I have a particular loathing of disbursing clerks from my Marine Corps days and later USPF&O from my AGR days. I am sure there are honorable men and women serving in those areas…I just never met any of them.

    So that may color my remarks but FUCK this guy. Fuck him that fucking fuck and I hope they discover he has been over paid his retirement for the past 15 years and ends up NPD for years and ends up sucking dick in a back alley for $10 a pop just to pay for food.

    I also hope his dog rejects him and runs away and finds a new home. Fuck him.

  21. Former Co-Worker says:

    I Just learned of this. He used to be the secretary where at a higher ed institution in Michigan. He would tell stories of his days as a SEAL. Sad to learn the truth 🙁
