Duane “Dina” Boyer; another phony in more ways than one

| April 16, 2014

Dina Boyer

A few weeks ago, someone sent me some stuff on this Boyer person who was claiming to be a Navy Cross recipient as well as some stuff about being in Beirut during the bombing and taking part in rescue of the fallen Marines. Of course, research was made more difficult by the fact that Duane Martin Boyer is now Dina Boyer and living as a woman. But here is Dina Boyer’s Linked In profile;

Yeah, well, the FOIA shows one Sea Service Ribbon. Punto.

Duane Dina Boyer FOIA

So, Boyer is Third Vice Commander of her American Legion Post, American Legion Post 448, in San Francisco, the Legion’s only all-Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Post and they’ve closed ranks around Boyer, despite the fact that they now have the FOIA in their hands, according to our friend at “Dina Boyer is a Fraud“.

Dina Boyer was a man when she in the Navy.
What ever you sent me in the attachment was not a DD214. I could bearly discern the document.
Try it again.
Commander Benfield

Yeah, because what you are is more important than who you are in San Francisco.

By the way, there are a lot of Dina Boyers on the internet, make sure you’re looking at the right one.

    Has this thing tried to “Wickre” yet? I’m surprised we haven’t been labeled “homophobe yet!

    More back and forth with the Post, and a great response from American Legion national HQ posted at http://www.dinaboyerisafraud.com

      Anyway to cut and paste that to here, as unfortunately that site is blocked here at work because…(damn gubmint somtimes)
      Access to the URL http://www.dinaboyerisafraud.com/ has been denied.

      The request was denied due to a content categorization unknown.

        Grrrr. Sorry. Basically, I sent them yet another email questioning why they won’t do a damn thing & outlining the evidence against Boyer, and in return I got this;

        “still am concerned,

        Yes, do you have the printout of her statement from the LinkedIn site that clearly displays the remarks about her
        being awarded the silver star for her conduct on board the Fairfax?

        Send as soon as possible, your entire case is predicated on this statement. Please send at once.

        I am now in the process of investigating the Ship during its tours in the early 1980’s.

        I’m also concerned about this web site you have referred me to.
        Call the POW.
        Everyone knows, that this acronym implies Prisoners Of War. No where does this appear when you open the site.


        Thank you for your consideration,

        Mario Benfield

        Like I said on the page, it sounds like it was written by an illiterate Nigerian scam artist, not a former Marine and AL Post Commander/Former District Commander.

    • Kinda old ET1 says:

      That guy from AL headquarters sounds like a stand up dude. Knows his shit too.

      • Eric says:

        +100 on that, ET1. Really good dude, and I deeply appreciate both his response and the bad spot National is stuck in.

        The baffling thing for me is the total unwillingness of the CA Department people to stand up to Post 448. It’s disgusting.

    To put this horseshit to rest (yeah right):

    Authorized February 4, 1919, the Navy Cross was the Navy’s 3rd highest award for combat heroism and other distinguished services. On August 7, 1942 Congress made the Navy Cross a COMBAT ONLY decoration with precedence over the Distinguished Service Medal, making it the Navy’s 2nd highest award ranking below only the Medal of Honor. It shares this position with the Army’s Distinguished Service Cross and the Air Force Cross.

    Awarded to U.S. and Foreign military personnel and civilians who have displayed extraordinary heroism in one of the following situations:
    1. While engaged in action against an enemy of the United States,
    2. While engaged in military operations involving conflict with a foreign force, or
    3. While serving with a friendly nation engaged in armed conflict against a force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.

    As Gomer would say – surprise, surprise, surprise.
    Maybe this would help convince her boyfriend at the American Legion post that he/she is faking the funk.

    This thing has been spotted in the vicinity of All-Points Logistics Houston Office.

    I wonder why?
