Michael Stokes phony Vietnam veteran/Mustang

| January 7, 2018 | 50 Comments

Our partners at Military Phonies share their work on this fellow, Michael Stokes, who claims to be a Marine veteran of the Vietnam War and an enlisted Marine who became an officer, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. He also claims that he was involved in Operation Frequent Wind to recover the USS Mayaguez as well as the Evacuation of Saigon. I don’t remember any Marines patrolling the East German border, either;

The National Personnel Records Center says that he didn’t enlist until five months after Saigon was evacuated, and about the same amount of time after Frequent Wind. He also left the Reserves, as a lance corporal, a year before he claims that he was working with Mujaheddin in Afghanistan;

His excuse? Well, he intentionally put all of that stuff on Facebook to keep people from “messing” with him;

Always a better choice than just leaving Facebook, I suppose.

    Strange thing…he has the Purple Heart in his case, but not on his cap.. Wonder why?

  2. REMF says:

    Stokes, you have dishonored your self and the Marines, you filthy little maggot.

  3. HMC Ret says:

    Hey, Stokes, congratulations. You’re already on Google as of about half an hour ago. Ya done, good, toad. Every generation of your lineage until the end of time will know you as the poser you are. Couldn’t be satisfied with what you did, you had to go big. Sucks to be you from this time forward.

  4. AW1Ed says:

    Six years of honorable service not good enough, so he slathers on the bullshit.

    Sad.

  5. Wilted Willy says:

    Cocksucker!

  6. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Just had to shit all over your perfectly good service in the Marine Corps, MICHAEL STOKES. Just had to LIE about your service… couldn’t be proud about serving.

    MICHAEL STOKES works balls, tickles taints and tongue punches crusty hobo fart boxes.

    “DECORATIONS AND AWARDS:”

    “Letter of Appreciation”

    What’s that for? I have a whole stack of those for all kinds of things, none of them military.
    Marine thing?

    • charles w says:

      My wife got one when I deployed to the big one. (Panama) She got it for helping with the Holiday parties for the wives and children.

    • Just An Old Dog says:

      USMC issues letters of appreciation, Letters of Commendation and Meritorious Masts. All paper awards for doing an outstanding job over a short period of time.
      It’s pretty much the equivalent of what the Army would issue an AAM or ACM for.

    • radar says:

      Just a pat on the head kind of thing, usually for something outside of your MOS. I got one from PMO in 2004 when I was put on gate duty because I PCSed to Yuma while my squadron was in Iraq.

  8. Mustang Major says:

    Looking at the cow horns in this clown’s living room reminds me that where you find cow horns, you find bull shit.

  9. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    This guy really “STOKES” up the comments on TAH. He’d better watch out that someone doesn’t cold cock him and he ends up in a Fire Dept. “STOKES” basket.

  10. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Booger-munching poodle turd.

  11. GDContractor says:

    Unlike this dipshit, I actually was on the USS Ogden. August 1989 Prince William Sound.

  12. HMC Ret says:

    This guy has quite an impressive “I Love Me’ display. Couldn’t be satisfied honorably doing what the vast majority of the public can’t/won’t do, he had to disgrace himself. I don’t understand.

    • Guard Bum says:

      Its mostly fake Chief as you probably suspect. He has an enlisted baracks cover with an officers quatrefoil on it; too stupid to do any research to support his lies eh Michael Stokes?

  13. Skippy says:

    Another turd hits the crapper

  14. Frankie Cee says:

    Michael Stokes wants fame. We can give it to him, mentioning his name with each comment. Far too many good men bled and died in the shithole that is Vietnam for me to be able to let him slide. What a fuckstick.

    • Animal says:

      So if I understand right Michael Stokes is the name you want mentioned repeatedly right? Or was it Michael Stokes. Just making sure you meant Michael Stokes.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      You mean Michael Stokes who IS NOT a Vietnam Vet, Michael Stokes who NEVER WAS a USMC Officer, Michael Stokes who “…also claims that he was involved in Operation Frequent Wind to recover the USS Mayaguez as well as the Evacuation of Saigon.”, Michael Stokes who falsely claims to be a PH Recipient, Michael Stokes who claims that’s him in that pic of a Soldier next to the Iron Curtain, Michael Stokes who makes bogus claims that he was part of the evacuation of Saigon, Michael Stokes who looks like a Highway Rest Stop Men’s Room toe-tapper, Michael Stokes who also look like a pencil-necked meat gazer?

          It sounds like Michael Stokes might want some Google Fame.

          Over.

  15. Ex-PH2 says:

    Michael Stokes is an asshole.

  16. Combat Historian says:

    This douche spouted so much bullshit about his fake Vietnam duty that my brain hurt just to keep up with it. I love the line about he was an “advisor to a platoon of ARVN”. The U.S. Army advised the ARVN, and by 1973 there were barely enough army advisors left to staff MACV assistance teams at the ARVN regimental levels, much less ARVN battalion/company/platoon levels. The USMC advised the VNMC Vietnamese Marines, and by 1973 the Marine advisors were such a small tight-knit and well-known group within the Marine/MACV community (Boomer, Ripley, Miller, etc) that a quick internet check would have revealed that this douche is liar.

    The internet is forever, cocksucker, enjoy the infamy…

  17. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Not just a flaming phony but a buck-toothed booger-eating meat-gazing bedwetter as well. I make an official motion for Michael Stokes to receive The Official TAH Wall of Insults®™.

  18. Guard Bum says:

    As a real Marine Mustang officer let me say fuck this piece of shit pretender. He has a cover in his fake I love me pile of crap with a quatrefoil on an enlisted baracks cover.

    If your going to be a phoney loser pretender because you failed in life in your own mind Michael Stoked DO SOME RESEARCH dumbass.

  19. Guard Bum says:

    Michael Stokes is a dumbass fake Marine pretender…not stoked…

  20. FatCircles0311 says:

    Terrible phony. He doesn’t even look like a horse let alone a mustang! 🤣

  21. Claw says:

    Would love to be a fly on the wall when Michael Craig Stokes’ wife (FB says Michael Craig Stokes got married in 2013) asks Michael Craig Stokes (for the 49th time) just where the Hell is that retired 0-5 pay that you Michael Craig Stokes, are always talking about?

    And to think that Michael Craig Stokes did all that Vietnam stuff before graduating from high school with the class of 1975.

    Did Michael Craig Stokes drive a DeLorean back then?/smile

    • Hack Stone says:

      Hack knew quite a few teenagers who supplemented their income working at McDonald’s, delivering newspapers or cutting lawns. Michael Stokes of New Braunfels Texas stepped up his game by hunting Viet Cong his sophomore year.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Oh, he did all that stuff in the Viet of the Nam when he was in junior high school, Claw.

      Ya hadda be there. He was all over the place!

      • Claw says:

        Yeah, Michael Craig Stokes did all that stuff while still playing both Varsity football and being a JV wrestler for Salida HS in 1974.

        I saw the pictures in the 1974 yearbook posted to Classmates where Michael Craig Stokes is listed as a member of the Junior class.

        Michael Craig Stokes was just as goofy looking back then as now.

        Confirmed. Michael Craig Stokes is a Dumb Ass.

        • rgr769 says:

          That would mean Michael Craig Stokes was about twelve years old when all that serious fighting was going on in the Viet of the Nam in 1969-1971. Funny, when I was over there the only 12-13 year olds looked very Vietnamese.

  22. HMC Ret says:

    Hey, Michael Stokes, we’re accustomed to a sock puppet right about now. Don’t disappointment us.

    Also, step up and tell us your 214 and all other records were destroyed in ‘the fire’ or some similar story. Please be as entertaining as possible.

    • rgr769 says:

      I’d like him (or his sock puppet) to tell us why he didn’t earn the highly coveted NDSM, but has the basic rack of Vietnam “I was there” medals he has on his ball cap.

  23. Green Thumb says:

    More like “Operation Broken Wind”.

    And he was taking it in the two hole.

    Clown.

  24. ArmyATC says:

    That lying shit stick Michael Stokes FB page shows he graduated high school in 1975. By his own evidence, there’s no way he could have served in Vietnam. The prevaricating cock gazer Michael Stokes would have been 15 or 16 years old when he claimed to have served in Vietnam in 1973 after combat troops had been pulled out of that country.

    • E4 Mafia For Life. says:

      But what if the CIA took him away in the night from his parents because someone in the MKUltra Program recognized his abilties and that he was ready to be an operator at 15?
      I heard he served with Steven Segal in Laosnambodia.

  25. USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

    In the upper left corner of the photo of his hat cabinet, it appears he has some medals in a frame. I can barely make out the ones on the bottom, but the ribbon colors and pattern of the one highest to the left appears to be the Navy and Marine Corps medal.

    Or my eyes are deceiving me.
