Jerry Lee, the Queens NY SEAL

| October 4, 2012

Don Shipley sends us this note;

Hello Guys… I have a new buddy, a corporate Head Hunter with access to job resume postings from around the world… He searches “Navy SEAL” and send them to me for verification… In the month we’ve been doing this he has sent me several HUNDRED resumes that are total fakes… I’ve sent the below clown to you.

Perhaps you can find something to post him on “This Ain’t Hell.” In my opinion, when they “Post Online” all their contact information seeking work then they should appreciate us posting their resumes in their entirety for the world to see and for others to contact them with job offers…

I’ve also attached Jerry’s picture. When I asked Jerry if he wanted to work for me as a SEAL Instructor he explained that he was VERY HAPPY at his new position working at Olive Garden…

You can’t make this shit up…

Cheers… Don Shipley…

That’s quite a fall from a 22-year Navy SEAL to a fries jockey at Burger King. But at least he’s rockin’ that plum job at Olive Garden now. I didn’t even know that we had SEALs stationed in Queens. I’m sure Bloomberg doesn’t know either.

    Frank: You need sensitivity classes. You also need not to look at the Stolen Valor Wedding thread–unless, of course, for some reason you feel a need to both puke and punish yourself.

  2. @#102 2-17AirCav:
    I tried the sensitivity class thing. But when I asked the instructor if the reason that he speaks with a lisp, and his wrists appear to be broken was because of his fagboy boyfriend’s kinky treatment of him, they kicked me out. Sheyit, I just can’t help it.

    in doe we trust? he looks like his name would of been doughboy….

  4. As of this morning, Jerry Lee is aware of this post. (He deleted the link that I posted on his FB wall.) If he were legit he would have been here to either tell us off or to defend his position. His facebook page invites us to “give him a call” about his “bits n pieces” flea market shop at:
    757.962.0709 or 757.270.8670 Let’s show him some love.

    I found this when I was looking for something else this morning. It has lyrics written by Allan Sherman, music by Gilbert & Sullivan from “HMS Pinafore”. I immediately thought of our more rotund impersonators.

    Little Butterball

    I’m called Little Butterball,
    Dear Little Butterball,
    ‘Though I could never tell why.

    My calories mount.
    My cholesterol count
    Is as high as an elephant’s eye.

    They told me to diet.
    I promised I’d try it,
    Yet somehow my weight would not budge.
    Each Metrecal cookie
    To me tasted ookie,
    So I covered it with hot fudge.

    I ate watercresses,
    And other such messes,
    And pushed all my favorites aside.

    I said to the caterers,
    “No more mashed potaterers,
    Just baked, and hash browned, and french fried.”

    I sing this sad song
    ‘Cause my diet went wrong,
    ‘Though I honestly tried to pay heed.

    I don’t care how high
    Is an elephant’s eye,
    But an elephant’s rear I don’t need.

    LMAO!!!! Navy Walrus, too funny! I was thinking more like elephant seal even.

    @105. “If he were legit he would have been here to either tell us off or to defend his position.” Frank, think man! If he were legit, he would have eaten half of us all ready. And as for defending his position, his position seems to be in multiple zip codes–simultaneously.

    Thanks, 2-17… my monitor is now sprayed with beer.

    Ok, I’ve been reading this blog for a bit in the past few days and while it seems you guys are harsh most of the time I can tell is in a good faith, thus the “just trolling” so can any of you answer couple of questions for me?

    – WHY .. no really .. WHY why would ANYONE try to impersonate a SEAL? I’ve had the pleasure to meet some and I’ve tried and failed dismally to enter (I guess being mexican DID count against me .. damn parents) and those guys are always quiet and even drunk will never really tell what they do, don’t this idiots think someone will make very specific questions such as “in which section where you on?” or hell get into fights in a dive bar with a dude that thinks he can take a SEAL?

    – While it might seem cool, how long they think they can do that lie?

    – I presume the fact that they might be targeted for some reprisal never goes in their mind? “Ohhh look found a SEAL and he is geolocating on his FB. Send an operative” kinda thing?

    *Shrug* anyway, my hat goes off to you all, thank you for serving this country, thank you for defending us.

    And on a very very idiotic note, I do get a lot of weird stares whenever I’m traveling and I stop and thank all the guys in uniform, I guess is really not that common, what a damn shame.

    @111. Here you go. It’s a 10+ minute video of a very quiet and deliberate fellow who, in 1972, had what he’d probably call a bad day. He’s what others pretend to be but never, ever could be.

  11. LostOnThemInterwebs says:


    Thank you, I do remember seeing his picture at the cryptographic museum (they had a small part on all the crypto stuff they used in Vietnam), it struck me how the person that was showing me all this told me that even generals salute when you have that and that he was the only living person to get it? (is that correct or as usual my memory fails me?)

    honestly I was a bit in awe, but being myself more into computers I got pulled away into the big building next door and got lost on that building. I’ve never seen that video but the story is amazing he seems just so relaxed just like “weeeell juuust another day @ the office” …

    Thank you!

  12. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @113. A bit in awe? I just stare stupidly when I watch MOH video accounts, usually with chills and some extra moisture in my eyes. As for the salute, there is no law requiring it but it is customary for a military person of any rank to salute a Medal of Honor recipient. As for living and posthumous awards, the split is about half and half.

  13. Willy says:

    This guy is obviously mentally ill.

  14. LostOnThemInterwebs says:


    Well I didn’t want to say “I stupidly stared at the picture for a few minutes ignoring the dude giving me the tour until he asked me ‘hey are you going to take a look at the gear or not’ and kept ignoring him while reading the small story it’s there” i thought it would sound too much of a fan boy.

    That’s why it irks me so much that ppl fake being in service or stuff they haven’t done. Now back to this “working for a living” thing … 🙂

  15. Rob in NH says:

    MCPO don’t forget, the USS Michael Murphy’s chiefs mess is named after another hero we lost that day… SCPO Dan Healy, from Exeter, NH. Just throwing that out there…

    As for this idiot, well, yeah…. Can’t even come up with anything…. WTF!

  16. O-4E says:

    That’s what I am talking about man!!!

    This man knew that after 22 years as a SEAL he was going to need some back up experience for a civilian job after he retired. So he works fast food gigs in his off time to get prepared for life after the military.

    If only the rest of our guys were such forward leaning go getters…we wouldn’t have the high unemployment rates in the Vet community.

    At 116 Rob in NH.

    I attended the USS Michael Murphy commissiong and I know SCPO Healy’s mom. Natalie is a strong woman and has started a wonderful non-profit to help kids make good decisions (

    Some kids damaged the SCPO Healy monument in Exeter, NH (twice) last summer.

    If you run into this great American Patriot Gold Star Mom … tell Terry says hello!

  19. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention that I have really loved surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing on your rss feed and I am hoping you write again soon!
