Herman C. Ford; phony SEAL

| August 29, 2014


Meet Herman C. Ford who has a very long list of places where he SEALed, Nicaragua, Somalia, Vietnam, of course and the list goes on forever we’re told. Not to mention his adventures with the CIA and Blackwater. He’s been a SEAL since 1961 with SEAL Team 1, he says, before that he was UDT. Well, maybe not;

Herman Ford FOIA

Spooge. The “limited information” that the NPRC had to search with was his social security number. Obviously another draft dodging stank-ass hippie who couldn’t summon the cojones when he had the chance, but feels he needs the recognition that he’s missing out on these days. And, hey, if you’re going to be a phony, be a SEAL phony, and a CIA phony and a Blackwater phony. No one wants to be a phony JAG officer…oh, wait.

    I’d say sic “The Hair” on him, but this one seems too much like low – hanging fruit. SEAL Team 1 since 1961? Maybe he helped that other fuckstick who claimed that he took pictures of the Cuban missiles during The Cuban Missile Crisis!

  2. nbcguy54 says:

    We’re working towards the TAH Used Car Lot. We got a Ford to go with our Chevy. Just need a Dodge and we’ll have the American Big 3 covered. Instead of the annual TAH poser contest, we can have a demolition derby.

    • Mustang1LT says:

      Hold on now….isn’t this the guy that had a hit back in the 60s with “Sea Cruise”? Perfect cover story for a SEAL/CIA badass.
      What? That guy was named FRANKIE Ford? Oh well, I tried. Got nuthin’ more.

    1. Memebr of SEAL Team 1 in 1961, one full year before the Team was formed!

    2. CIA ball cap!

    3. US Navy SEAL large Trident pinned to CIA ball cap!

      Master Chief, can you confer “legit” status without seeing the single bullet dangling from a lanyard around the neck? I lost my copy of the rulebook.

    • JBS says:

      4. Got the Tom Clancy with a beard look.

    Hey, he’s legit. He’s got the CIA cap on, so he must be legit. I’m sure The Company is hiding his super sealkrit squarrel personnel records in a safe somewhere in Langley…

    • Flagwaver says:

      I have an Enterprise ball cap with scrambled eggs on the bill. That don’t make me an Admiral.

      Wait… maybe it makes me an honorary Admiral. Can I get a ruling? Because I have the hat, can I start signing stuff ADM (hon)?

    “The spy who conned me” has a nice ring to it . . . .

  7. AW1 Tim says:

    I’m thinking that maybe it’s time that some of the SEAL teams had team reunions, and invited these guys. Tell them they found them on the internet, that they need contact info so as to send the banquet tickets, name tags, etc.

    If they demur, let ’em know that that’s okay. The Navy has budgeted a bunch of money for the reunion, and they have a car and driver available to come and pick the posers, er, I mean, SEAL alumni up. Even provide airline tickets, hotel rooms, etc.

    Could be a LOT of fun, you know? Tell them that a couple of their old team mates remember them and were insisting that they show up for old time’s sake. 🙂

    I dunno. Could be fun, you know?

  8. MrBill says:

    I’ll bet his record is SEALed.

  9. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Just a SEAL and not a Gummy Sergeant sooperdooperseekritskwirrel Scout Sniper as well? Damn, this one looks tame compared to some of the others! I went to a mobile memorial to the GWOT a couple of months ago, and there were plenty of guys wearing Vietnam Vet apparel. Some of them I asked the typical questions “When were you there? What unit were you with over there?” etc. got replies of “I can’t remember” from the ones with the most “bling” on their vests and hats, I was there to say “HI” to my fallen Buddies in my own way, but next time I’m bringing my camera!

    • Hondo says:

      Don’t forget that most cells have cameras these days, PI.

      Not great resolution, but if you’re close it’s good enough.

      • tm says:

        Smartphones now are pretty darn good on the resolution side of things. Many will shoot HD video and they keep improving low light photography both in hardware and software.

        So, yeah. Just pretend you’re checking sports scores on your phone, and dang your eyes and the screen, gotta move the phone up to see clearly… 🙂

  10. John "Faker 6" Giduck says:

    I’ll bet that all Herman C. Ford’s stories start with “so I was f^&#ing this chick in the ass…”.

    That’s how all of mine start anyway. Buckle your chinstraps when that line leaves my lips or when I reach to show off my collection of red Spetnaz berets.

    You guys just wait. When we get an army mechanic phony he’s going to be one badass mutha.

    Rockin the drivers badge…mechanics badge.

    Hell yeah.

  12. I’ve long been a bit puzzled why anyone (not interested in outright fraud, ie money) would choose the SEALS to impress anyone? It is such a small community that being outed as a phony is only a matter of time.

    I’d wanna be an Admiral myself… Oh wait, I AM!

  13. Jabatam says:

    I like how you turned SEAL into a verb

  14. Just an Old Dog says:

    Gee I can see his retirement now.
    Come on in Chief, We are sorry but we cant have any records of what you did, so as a consolation we are presenting you with this CIA ballcap and SEAL trident.

  15. Hack Stone says:

    And remember, in the interest of national security, you are not allowed to tell anyone what you have done. Unless it helps you get a job, some free shit from a Veteran’s charity, or it is instrumental in women (or men) dropping their panties.
