Phony in Raleigh

| July 20, 2010

We got a tip that there’s a serious phony Marine in Raleigh by the name of Alan Robert Lorinth expressing his first amendment right to be a jerkwad. According to POW Net, he’s been confronted and reported several times for pretending to be a Marine (his actual service was in the Army as a chaplain’s assistant in Vietnam), a POW, and an awardee of three Purple Hearts.

Here’s a copy of the DD214 he flashes around;

You’ll notice the Purple Hearts listed on the DD214 are in a different sized type and font than the previous entries and the award would actually read “Purple Heart 3rd Award” in military speak. Also, he typed “CAB” (Combat Action Badge – an Army award established three decades after he left the service) instead of “CAR” (Combat Action Ribbon – the award he’d be given if he was a Marine for service in combat).

POW Net also has pictures of his license plate – Purple Heart plates, of course. I guess that means he’s used his freedom of speech to get perks to which he’s not entitled.

He’s so ashamed of his service, he pretends to be a Marine – interservice rivalry aside, how fucked up is that? The Marines don’t want him (he’s been kicked out of the Marine Corp League) and we don’t want him either. He changed his MOS to get out of being an engineer and now he wants us to think he’s a machine gunner. Dickwad.

POW Net has three apologies he’s sent them over the years, but he continues his behavior – he was most recently reported in January 2010 playing the role. Here he is on the current roster of the Tamarac, FL Marine Corps League.

Let’s get him the publicity he so desperately craves.

    As a former lead attorney for the ACLU, I have come to the conclusion that the organization that I loved to be part of has taken the fight out of me to continue to expose these people as frauds. i was wrong in trying to stifle their free speech and should have known that, because as a former lead attorney for the ACLU, it is one of my passions to fight for the freedoms for all of us.

    As former head of Bottle Washing and Rocket Science at NASA, along with my dabbling in nuclear weapons research at Oak Ridge, I’m convince that we need to take off, and nuke the bastard from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Sparky…I could have said it better, but I was spewing the monitor at work…heh. 🙂

    As the former head of Internal Covert Operations for the Central Intelligence Agency, I would be more than happy to refer any requests for assistance in locating and dealing with this threat to my contacts within the program.

    As a former nuc, I suggest we placate the prophet Rickover with a deckape sacrifice so that he will smite the imposter with a blast of neutrons.

    I remember when I was a CIA double-agent as a communications specialist in the Marine Commandos….I remember Lorinth was there. We served together, and even went with some guy named Kerry on a trip to Laos. Seared, SEARED into my memory.

    Nucsnipe–ROFL! But that reminds me of one of the KOG’s more memorable quotes: “If you’re forced to choose between sinning against God, or sinning against the bureaucracy, sin against God. God will forgive you. The bureaucracy won’t.”
