Logan Sutton; phony SEAL

| November 1, 2017 | 79 Comments

Our partners at Military Phonies send us their work on this fellow, Logan Thor Sutton. He’s an active duty sailor who claims to be a Navy SEAL;

Well, no one could find any record of him attending SEAL Training or BUD/S, so Military Phonies published about him yesterday. It didn’t take long for him to respond;

I used to use AKO to find these guys’ supervisors and deal with them that way, but the Obama Administration thought they could save money by shutting down my AKO account, so what am I supposed to do?

Anyway, Sailor Sutton is an engineman and an E-3. He can probably volunteer to be a SEAL, he still has time.

    I left my comment over at Military Phonies… this kid’s CO/XO and CMC need to lighten his sleeve for his bullshit – I’m sure that he’ll get that message LOUD AND CLEAR.

      Lose a stripe? On what grounds?

      NJP requires a violation of the UCMJ. Last time I checked, BSing someone about your background on an online forum may be p!ss-poor and dishonest behavior, but doesn’t in general violate the UCMJ. And I don’t really think you want his CO/XO to go the “prejudicial to good order and discipline” Article 134 route here – that’s so damn broad it lends itself to abuse on a whim, IF it would even fly. And that’s a big if IMO.

      I’d say just let his CMC and Chiefs handle this case. They should be able to make the guy pay for his misconduct quite well enough without getting his CO/XO and JAG involved.

    • CB Senior says:

      If only the old days! Some CCC or a Mini Mo tour would do wonders.

      For you NON Navy types; Mini Mo was a TAD Mini Motivational Tour Run by the SEALS to corrects attitude problems of Sailors. I am sure he would have received lots of LOVE.

    • desert says:

      lose astripe? the lying a.h. is only a seaman, he only has two stripes…lol…wanna make him a seaman apprentice again, or maybe back to seaman recruit?

  2. Combat Historian says:

    I’m sure Logan Sutton’s chain of command will be hearing about his lying bullshit soon; it’s extra-bad when active duty folks try to pull this posering crap…

  3. Animal says:

    There’s a world of hurt gonna descend on this young man today.

  4. OAE CPO USN Ret says:

    Gee it would be a shame if the active duty CPO mess saw this article. Oh look at that. I’ll be back in a bit, I have to take out the trash. Keep the noise down while I’m gone.

  5. Daisy Cutter says:

    The only confirmed kill he got was in Assassin’s Creed using a cheat code.

  6. Claw says:

    Thor, the CPO Mess Hammer, slick sleeve, lighter wallet.

    Some assembly required.

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    Oh, Lord, won’t you buy me
    A Budweiser pin?
    My friends all have earned one.
    I’m jealous as sin.
    I worked hard in my rate
    To invent a bullshit spin.
    Oh, Lord won’t you buy me
    A Budweiser pin?

    (Thanks to Janis for writing the original.)

    Is this the first active duty poser on TAH?

    • FuzeVT says:

      I don’t know that I’ve seen any in the couple of years I’ve been hanging around.

      Perhaps since people are caring less and less about the military*, he had to up his game a little. Everyone loves SEALS, yes?

      *Based on how people (well, businesses, really) poured out thanks and discounts and now that seems to be going by the way side. No cool war going on right now, right? [Yes, I know those serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, South Korea, etc. would disagree.]

      I do suppose [i]the people[/i] still have an outpouring of love for the military. That, of course, is where these fakers always seem to be trying to scam people.

    • Hondo says:

      If I recall correctly, no. I seem to recall Jonn posting articles concerning a couple of SNCOs who got caught wearing unauthorized decorations, court-martialed, and busted. I believe that in at least one case, a BCD was also part of the sentence.

      I also recall an officer at Benning of all places getting caught wearing an unauthorized Ranger Tab. Didn’t go too well for him, either – though as I recall somehow he avoided court-martial.

      Cases are rare among active duty troops, but they’re not unknown.

      • IDC SARC says:

        There was a military PA student (ready to actually graduate) at Ft Sam busted for claiming to be a SARC and wearing the (unearned) expected qualification badges and ribbons of such an NEC. He looked pretty in his new whites, but after a community blast went out and the truth was revealed he was thrown out of the program and out of the service.

        • Slick Goodlin says:

          Interesting conundrum for soldiers court-martialed for wearing unauthorized awards and decorations and for their defense attorneys.

          Soldiers are required to appear in court in their dress uniform with all authorized awards and decorations.

          If they appear without the decorations in question are they admitting guilt?

          If they appear with the decorations in question are they incriminating themselves?

    • AnotherPat says:

      sj: As Hondo stated, I remembered Jonn posting on TAH a couple of Active Duty Soldiers who were caught wearing Qualification Badges (e.g RANGER Tabs, Air Assault Badge) as well as Medals and combat patches that they never earned. Three I remembered were CSM Perry McNeill, CPT Jose Huertas and LTC Gerald Green. I know there were more, but can’t remember their names. The majority of them were Senior NCOs or Officers.

      Sad, isn’t it. All because of the want of shiny medals and badges and combat patches, their kingdom, (careers) and credibilty was lost.

  9. Frankie Cee says:

    Logan Sutton is just another of those who are sorry that they got caught. If he hadn’t seen his name up in lights, he would have kept on with his bullshit. The only reason that he contacted TAH was for Damage Control, not to make an atonement. His only distinction from the posers is that he is an “Exposed Poser”.

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    I see many, many hours of extra duty and swabbing/buffing floors in this person’s future. After that, possibly cleaning heads and maybe a personal, closed door visit from some annoyed people.

  11. jonp says:

    I don’t think rank should be taken for this crap. Let his chain handle it with a hearty “don’t f###### ever do that again” followed with a healthy dose of floor swabbing to make the point. No need to ruin a career for being stupid.

  12. OldManchu says:

    Nice meat gazer stare and smirk there ya asshat!

  13. NavCWORet says:

    Yeah, I don’t agree with loss of rank. He didn’t break any law on the books that I’m aware of. Being a douchebag isn’t illegal.

    His CPO Mess should be the ones to put him on the straight and narrow.

  14. Graybeard says:

    After his CPO gets him straightened out, he may even turn into a squared-away career man. Who knows?

  15. Guard Bum says:

    I know that no one would likely agree with me but to me a fitting end to this would be for him to be given the opportunity to try out for BUDs training. Let him suffer the humiliation of not even being able to pass the screening and if he does pass and make it to training then good on him.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      No, I do agree. He’s mouthing off about being a SEAL, so send him off to BUD/S. If he makes it through the cold and the wet and the possibility of getting both legs broken by a zodiac, or something equally nasty, fine.
      I just don’t think he’d make it very far.

    • IDC SARC says:

      No, because he’d be taking up a slot from someone that applied and was actually found suitable to be there. This guy’s a waste of oxygen, and doesn’t deserve a fast rack through the gates at Coronado,

      • IDC SARC says:

        *fast track I meant

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Well, wait a minute. He’d have to go through the initial screening at Great Lakes before he ever got accepted to BUD/S. That’s ahead of everything else. If he can’t pass that part, he’s out of it. He wouldn’t even get to the training program itself.
        My bad. I forgot that GLakes comes first, then the rest. Sorry about that.

  16. jp76er says:

    For us non-military folk, what is a CPO Mess? Doesn’t sound like this kid is going to be enjoying life.

  17. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    My first thought was that someone who spent enough time hanging over the side of an underway ship, chipping and painting, would not have time to do stupid shit online.

    Is that the sort of thing CPO’s use to keep problem children on the right path?

  18. Carlton G. Long says:

    THOR ??? Oh, brother

  19. Atkron says:

    Back in the day this wouldn’t have even made it to the Chief level.

    Had he been in my squadron, he’d be out cleaning water out of padeyes with a fork.

  20. Carlton G. Long says:

    Maybe he already bolo’d out…he says in his confession that he “quit on [his] dream and had to settle”

  21. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    THAT kid done shit on himself, I wonder if he’s already suffering for his stupidity?

  22. Jonn Lilyea says:

    An NCIS special agent (not Leroy Gibbs) has notified us that Sutton’s command has been made aware of his antics. Stand by for the mushroom cloud.

  23. rgr769 says:

    Well, the fake SEALs are still ahead 4 to 2 over the fake green berets this week. I’m keeping my money on the fake fish eaters.

  24. Daisy Cutter says:

    Call me a wind-chimey optimist, but I see this as a good thing. He is probably young enough that this will cause a course change. The old farts will probably never learn their lesson.

  25. Chief says:

    what really pisses me off about this guy is that he’s actually doing some high speed shit. he does VBSS (Visit Board Search and Siezure for you non-navy folk). I’m glad his mess is aware; I definitely would’ve been “that guy” who sent an email to his CMC if not.

  26. JACK SHIT says:

    Logan Thor Sutton DOES NOT currently know me but with the right guidance me Might come to do so!!!

  27. TF-BA says:

    Can’t his DIVO put him on three days bread and water for lack of military bearing?

    That seems fitting, you know, in addition to anything the Chiefs come up with.

  28. hoofhearted says:

    baby thor make’s e3 out of boot camp…not too shabby.

    become’s an EN, get’s a crow relatively quick…not too shabby.

    get’s sent to a friggin’ LCS…aye carumba. get’s delusions of grandeur to make up for that by posing/thinking he is a SEAL for being on a SUW module team for that platform…SHABBY.

    i suppose he wouldn’t be the first snipe that tried bullshittin’ to drop some splittail panties…would like to be a fly on the bulkhead if he has a DRB, but that floating tow-target of a “ship” probably only has a few goats in that locker anyways.

    my hope is that baby thor make’s out with crow intact and is sent to a modern day actual Ship Of The Line…dropping the “bilgewater” routine, before he run’s into some REAL Thors who will probably do some grease-packing down below the waterline until he shape’s up.

    carry on, you shitbird.
