Steve Hardee; phony Ranger, phony Vietnam vet, phony paratrooper

| February 8, 2018 | 97 Comments

Wilbur Steve Hardee comes to us from a fellow who moderates a Facebook page for Grenada veterans. Steve tried to join, hoping they wouldn’t ask him any questions;

He claims he was in 3rd Battalion, 75th Rangers in Vietnam and Grenada. There was no 3rd Battalion Rangers in Vietnam and they were reactivated October 4th, 1984 – a year after Grenada.

Hardee has a couple of Facebook pages and the two I’ve seen say that he was a sergeant in 173rd Airborne Infantry Brigade;

The National Personnel Records Center says that he spent five months at Relaxin’ Jackson and the Army kicked him to the curb. No Rangers, no Vietnam, no Grenada, no jump school;

    Another phony Viet Vet/Ranger/paratrooper. What happened to the phony Seals today at the TAH starting gate.

  2. SSG Kane says:

    Is it just me, or do all these Vietnam Vet fakers look way to young to have actually been there?

    • 26Limabeans says:

      Not just you. And they seem to be getting younger.

    • Dennis - not chevy says:

      A cop once asked me if Veterans have it as bad as tales say. I said I could only speak for myself and I didn’t have too many complaints. I asked why he asked. He told me he was about to run three ne’er-do-wells in for public intoxication, disturbing the peace, and whatever else would stick when they begged for mercy. He added, they told him they were just venting all of the smoke and trauma they accumulated from service in Vietnam. The cop let them off to about their ways. I asked the cop if he was younger than I; he said he was. I asked the cop if the malcontents were younger than he; he said they were. I wish I had taken a picture of the cop’s face when I told him I was too young to be a Vietnam War vet; he was not a happy constable. This is what happens when students are not taught history.

      • RM3(SS) says:

        When I worked patrol and would run across those fellas that claimed PTSD or had the cardboard sign “Vietnam vet” I’d give them the quiz, how old are you, followed by what was your MOS/NEC, where’d you go to boot camp etc. In 22 years of patrol I met maybe 4-5 that seemed to be legit. All the others got no mercy. For a while I was taking their cardboard signs and putting them up in our report room, but the administration told me that the signs were considered personal property and I was supposed to book them as evidence.

    • rgr769 says:

      As I have said before, in 20 years we will still have POSers in their 50’s claiming to be Viet of the Nam veterans.

    • Cris says:

      I turned 18 in 79, and I’ve seen many younger than me try to claim Vietnam. Somewhere I read that the official end date for the Vietnam conflict was Apr 75. So, if you’re not at least 4 years older than me, then you and your Vietnam stories can go pound sand.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        Really, as I see it, anyone who claims to have been on the ground in VN after 1973, is full of shit. And if they claim to have been a combat troop, that’s stretching it.

        • Hondo says:

          Well, there were those involved on the ground in combat situations in FREQUENT WIND, EAGLE PULL, and the Mayaguez Incident. All of those operations occurred in 1975. But all three of those are rather small groups.

  3. Les says:

    We popped him early January. That thread had hundreds of comments. I was messaging him until 9JAN. He said that was actually in 2/75 in RVN. Asswipe extrodinaire.

    • rgr769 says:

      What is so laughable is that he (and many others) don’t know that none of three Ranger Battalions in the 75th Infantry Regiment ever served in RVN. What we had over there were independent Ranger Companies attached to divisions, separate brigades and Corps HQ’s. The 1st Battalion/75th Inf. was not formed until about 1975, two years after the last combat troops left RVN. There was no such thing as a US Ranger battalion in RVN, ever.

  4. Jay says:

    How the hell did he stay at Jackson and get kicked at Ft. Sill?

  5. Claw says:

    Gunga Dan – 111 days

    Steve (Hurricane) Hardee – 156 days

    Totally Legit!!/s

    • Claw says:

      Further confirmation of legitimacy:

      Wilbur Steve Hardee is a member of “Left Low Ball” Jimmy Walls’ UH-1 Huey Helicopter Face Book page.

      Over 26,000 members will vouch for him./s

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      We had a Myron or Byron in the 2/17. Farm boy. Good guy. Threatened to kick the ass of anyone who called him by his first name. No one did. Damn if I can recall what name he went by but I can see him clearly in my mind’s eye. Maybe about 2 a.m. I’ll remember.

    I’m thinking Hardee got being in The Herd confused with that time he was caught in a sale stampede at WalMart…

    RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!

  17. Dan Johnson says:

    Continuing to snoop through his friends, I ran across this guy- Byron Mccalman. Looking through his photos )https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1296628783698224&set=a.149333168427797.25809.100000533430843&type=3&theater) he infers that the inset (guy in OD’s w/ 101st patch) is him (comments on photo).
    Then, this photo (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1260955030598933&set=ecnf.100000533430843&type=3&theater) he comments that he took this when in Iraq, for 2 1/2 years?
    Seems to me that he may be a bit old, but I know a guy that was in both (Vietnam 68-69 and Iraq 04-05).

    • The Chief says:

      I agree with you. I think we can find more stolen valor off of this guy’s huge list of Facebook friends. How the hell did he get that many friends? He’s doesn’t seem friendly at all!!

      • Claw says:

        “How the hell did he get that many friends?”

        Real easy. When you look at the almost 30 different military oriented Facebook groups he is a member of, which probably total over 200,000 fakers just like him, and you sit there in the back bedroom of your single wide under a bare 40 watt bulb sending out Friend requests to each and every one of them, with a success rate of roughly 10% accepting the Friend request, you end up with the 2400 and some “Friends” that he is so proud of.

        It’s all a numbers game./smile

        • Claw says:

          Well, Damnit, something has been gnawing at me all day and I just now figured it out.

          It should read “roughly 1% accepting”, NOT “10% accepting”

          My bad. I blame it on insufficient caffeine input.

    • E4 Mafia For Life. says:

      Our CSM in the Gulf War was in Tiger Force Recon (1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, ) in Vietnam.
      Tiger Force Recon was created by Col. David Hackworth.
      Our CSM was an E4 in 1967.

    I got a break and re-tallied our contestants in the 2018 TAH Phony Race, adding columns for various items such as having real service, being over/underweight, and various criminal offenses.

    Green Beret/SF: 5 (1 female)
    Rangers: 5
    Marines: 5

    Navy UTD: 1
    Navy EOD: 1
    AF Pilot: 1 (1 female)
    Army Officer: 1
    Misc. unearned awards: 2

  19. Frankie Cee says:

    Checking his page, I see one of my friends there, a REAL DEAL Ranger, former Ranger Instructor at Mountain Phase, and have alerted him. I also sent Steve Hardee a message:
    “Hello Steve. I have been asked to help you verify your Ranger status. Could you tell me what Ranger Class you went through? You claim 3/75 during Vietnam and Grenada? That is interesting.
    I check several people each week. Those that are legit let me know their class number as that is one thing that every Ranger is very proud of. Knowing that, I can move on, and get things squared away. Some, those who are not legit, and are too coward to have a conversation about it, about unfucking themselves, usually show what they are not by blocking me, thinking that will let them off the hook. Hit me back and we can get to the bottom of this. Ranger Steve Hawk will help in verification, as he is a former Ranger Instructor, and also has access to Ft. Benning records. Thanks, and waiting for your reply.”

      Yeah. Four whole months of “honorable” AD and in that last month he apparently stepped on his crank and was kicked to the curb as an E-1 at the five month mark. Impressive.
