James Leroy Hines; phony combat veteran

| December 15, 2017 | 86 Comments

Our partners at Military Phonies share their work on James Hines who claims that he trained in UDT and served in combat in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Military Phonies summarizes his actual career;

Active duty from OCT 23, 1968 – NOV 10, 1972 = 4 years and 18 days

Reserve duty from NOV 11, 1972 – SEP 27, 1974 = 1 year, 10 months and 16 days

Active duty from SEP 28, 1974 – OCT 20, 1976 = 2 years and 22 days

Reserve duty from OCT 21, 1976 – JAN 22, 1983 = 6 years, 3 month and 1 day

This is a grand total of 14 years, 2 months and 30 days of combined service in the US Navy.

James was discharged as an E-5, HT2 (Hull Technician). His service record shows No BUD/S, no SEAL Team. He did earn the designation of Second Class Diver. No Vietnam, No Iraq and No Afghanistan. No records were located of him serving in the US Army.

He claims that he went to Iraq and Afghanistan because the Army didn’t have enough crotchety 60-years-olds to slow down the younger warfighting experts. That shit only happens in Hollywood.

His only award is a single National Defense Service Medal, despite what he wears on his bogus Army uniform.

    Worthless cocksucking bastard!!

  3. sj says:

    Vest. Check.
    No Bike, Doo Rag, Dog or the PTSD?

  4. NHSparky says:

    Well, at least he was in a SEAL source rating. That’s kinda the same thing, right?

  5. Combat Historian says:

    If he falsely claimed Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, I wonder why he didn’t claim DS/DS? Some sense of modesty or he just plumb forgot amidst all the other lying bullshit he’s spewing?

  6. EODJay says:

    Raggedy old shit bag.

  7. Mason says:

    I wonder how many actual Vietnam vets served in Iraq/A-stan after 9/11. In my USAFR unit I served with at least two Vietnam combat vets post-9/11 but neither deployed in the GWOT.

    One was a quiet, unassuming E-6. Nice guy. Didn’t even know he was prior army until he retired and wore his dress blues. Had a CIB and a silver star. Just goes to show that the guys with the real war stories tend not to advertise it.

    • Combat Historian says:

      When I was at the OIF repple depple at Bliss in 2006 on my way to Iraq, I ran into a 59 year-old retired warrant officer and Nam Vet who held a very specialized Army Aviation MOS who had been recalled to active duty and was on his way to Iraq with us because of a current shortage of experienced folks in that MOS. He was not ecstatic about being recalled, but was kind of resigned to it and didn’t really complain about it that much during our time at the repple depple…

      • PFM says:

        When I was in Mosul in 2004 they had a Guard aviation unit from Oklahoma I believe rotate in. They took a picture of a group of the Warrants and Crew Chiefs that had been on Hueys and Cobras in Vietnam and were on Apache and Blackhawk then.

        • SFC D says:

          I crossed paths with a Signal CW4 with a 1ST Signal BDE combat patch, Victory Base, I think it was JUN 2003. AFAIK, the only place to get the jagged shaft on your right shoulder was Viet of the Nam.

    • TF-BA says:

      To put it in perspective for you, in 2009 there were TWO (2) men in the whole of the USN who had two service stars on their NDSM. One of them was the CNO.

      • NavyCWORet says:

        One of those would have been me. I entered active duty in 1983 and retired in 2013. That would allow 2 stars, one for DS and one for Post 9/11.
        Conflict Inclusive Dates
        Korean War June 27, 1950 to July 27, 1954
        Vietnam Conflict January 1, 1961 to August 14, 1974
        Gulf War August 2, 1990 to November 30, 1995
        War on Terrorism September 11, 2001 to TBD

        • NavyCWORet says:

          Sorry, may have misunderstood. One star, two awards with the ribbon being one award.

          • TF-BA says:

            You caught yourself, no foul. That little factoid about the CNO was pointed out to me by the OTHER guy with two stars on his NDSM, at the time my Dept head 0-6 who became a Corpsman at the absolute ass end of Vietnam Conflict dates and went on to become an Emergency Med Doctor.

            There are probably still plenty of folks kicking around with DS NDSM’s on active duty today. Especially in the medical fields because of prevalent E to 0 programs, E break in service to 0 recruiting and the (to put it nicely) less rigorous demands of hospital careers.

      • NECCSeabeeCPO says:

        Sorry, we had some reserve master Chiefs that had two and ribbon. One had also been boots on ground in Nam, DS/DS, and Iraq he retired before is Reserve Battlion went to Afganistan.

    • Cris says:

      Attached to us in Ramadi in 2004 was a reserve Sea Bee unit from Florida. The running joke was that in WWI the average age of a soldier was 26, in WWII it was 23, in Korea 21, Vietnam 19 and OIF, thanks to the Sea Bees, 46…

    • Martinjmpr says:

      When my unit deployed to Afghanistan in 2003 we had a cook who had served with the 25th ID in Vietnam and he deployed with us.

      And when we deployed to Kuwait in 2004 for OIF (different unit), I remember the local newsletter featured an article about the then-oldest enlisted man serving in theater, he was (iirc) a 59-year old reservist who had served very early with the 1st Cav in Vietnam.

      His combat patch was a 1st Cav Division patch with an Airborne tab, which I believe was only authorized for maybe the 1st year the 1st Cav Division was in Vietnam (1965 I think.)

      Simple math says that barring some special circumstance, there could be no legit Vietnam vets in theater after 2013, since soldiers aren’t allowed to serve on active duty past the age of 59 except under rare conditions.

      The last US combat troops were withdrawn from Vietnam in 1972, so assuming an 18 year old service member in 1972 was born in 1954, by 2013 that service member would reach 59.

    • rgr769 says:

      A couple of combat vets that served in my Ranger company in the RVN served in Iraq. One did two tours training Iraqi police.

    • Andy11M says:

      Mason, early 2005 I was finishing up OIF II at FOB Normandy, we had a unit from 3ID taking over, but there was some other folks on the FOB as well. Met a Nasty Girl LtCol who had on a pair of South Vietnamese jump wings. The two Sgts with me from my platoon thought I was making fun of how old he looked when I asked when he did his tour in Vietnam. If memory serves, he said 65 or 66.

    Time to smack one of my own kind…BOOM! What the fuck, man? Did you go full retard to try and impress your new wife? As of 9:14 AM EST, his Facebook page is open and he is currently taking heavy fire or how ever Army types say that shit. Its coming fast & furious in an open comments section. Have at it!

  10. Sapper3307 says:

    A fake Combat Engineer without a fake Sapper tab, complete amateur.

  11. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    WTF is that red and white shoulder cord supposed to be, Combat Candy Striper? He should have stuck with blowing winos behind bus stops instead of parading in stuff where he can be spotted and vetted in no time, THE INTERNET IS FOREVER!

  12. 26Limabeans says:

    Amazing how the number of living Vietnam vets keeps growing and growing. One dies and two more come out of the bush to be recognized.
    Truly amazing.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I’ve heard that each and every legitimate Vietnam Vet has at least ten or twenty posers riding his or her coattails, some say as many as fifty! I wonder how many of us Post-9/11 ME Veterans already have doing that on us?

      • just some feller says:

        I’ll betcha a lot of them are “Vietnam Era” vets who conveniently drop the “era” portion.

        If anybody asks me, I tell ’em I was a Vietnam ERA vet, but assigned to Texas. I must have done a good job, because no North Vietnamese ever attacked Texas.*

        *Hat-tip to “Lonesome George” Gobel.

        Based upon what I have seen here, other stolen valor sites, on the old POWnetwork, and all the phonies I have encountered I think your numeric range of ten to twenty is about right.

      • 3/17 Air Cav says:

        I was at the local VFW this week, chatting with a couple of my fellow Vietnam vets. We all agreed that we never thought the day would come, when people would actually lie about being Vietnam vets. Everyone of us did not talk about it for decades!

        • The Stranger says:

          Shakespeare nailed it with the St. Crispin’s day soliloquy (Band of Brothers). Those fuckers held their honor and manhood cheap and now, as they see more days behind them than ahead of them, they want to claim something that they were too afraid to earn. Piss on them all; they can’t have what you and your friends have, that satisfaction of having done one’s duty.

  13. Graybeard says:

    James Leroy Hines – you lying scumbag.
    Someone ought to rip your beard out piece by piece, James Leroy Hines you liar.

    James Leroy Hines had honorable service, but has dumped it all in the slit latrine.

  20. Hondo says:

    Hmm. In one of the photos above this “fine individual” is sporting some kind of VFW patch.

    If he’s actually a VFW member, I’m curious about how he managed to join. Since he has no campaign or expeditionary medals, the only way he’d legitimately meet VFW membership eligibility requirements would be to have (1) received hostile fire pay/imminent danger pay, or (2) served in Korea for the requisite number of days.

    Of course, I guess it’s possible someone could lie their way into the VFW using fake documents or by finding a post that didn’t vet members. Theoretically, of course.

    Do we have a first in the world of POSerdom with this gnarly old turd? IIRC, he is the first phony to claim SEAL, UDT, EOD, and Army combat engineer. I think this is the first time I have seen one of our POSers rocking a trident on an Army uniform.

  23. The Stranger says:

    An Engineer SEAL with a beret? That’s more fucked up than a semi truck loaded with a trailer full of broken footbal bats! Man, fuck this guy!

    As far as age goes I may be “Honorable Mention” as far as things go in this TMB (“too many birthdays”) discussion. I was USAF medic enlisted 1967 at age 18. Joined USNR 1982 as officer (physician). Deployed to OIF.1 at age 53 (as a vascular surgeon). OEF-A (Uruzgan) at 59 and for a final 1 yr tour to Helmand Prov at age 62. Just about the time I was bragging about being senior leader of “Grandfathers in the Gulf” program I met a wonderful USN orthopedic surgeon at Bastion NATO hospital who was 67 years old. Take home message ? Never miss the chance to deploy us older surgeons..we made all of our big mistakes “many years ago”.We bring a lot of experience/judgement to the operating table while saving bleeding Marines, sailors, soldiers and yes..quite a few enemy as well.
