Lori Scroggins-Phipps; roller derby stolen valor queen

| September 12, 2014

Lori Scroggins Phipps 1

Scottie sends us his work on Lori Scroggins Phipps, who was indeed a Marine for a few years, but she didn’t earn anything that she’s wearing in that picture above, which, by the way, she claims was a costume for a roller derby charity event.

This is what Scottie says she’s wearing in that picture;

Compare that to her FOIA;

Lori Scroggins Phipps Education

Yeah, no Drill Instructor time, no sea service, no Gunnery Sergeant promotions. And, that skirt is a bit short for military service, I’m guessing.

Scottie says that he warned her about the picture back in January and she removed it, but then it came back a few weeks ago, because she thought Scottie wasn’t paying attention. Now it’s on the internet forever.

    Wow, I am surprised that Jonn has not dropped the ban hammer on MarkL. Maybe it is because he knows that we enjoy a fresh chew toy every now and then.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I’m absolutely sure of that!

    • DirtDart says:

      Just brewed a new pot OIF ’06-’07-’08 :

      am enjoying this a lot too.

      Proud Infidel- he’s rocking in the corner, poring tears into his double frap decaffe what-ever-the-hell-she-drinks calling his $300 hr physiatrist- crying that “those mean and cruel vets are making me cry”

      like a cop I knew in Georgia- “Don’t blame me if you don’t know what to do with your freedom”
      Cant fix stupid.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Yup. Hey, it suddenly got awfully quiet, two things could have happened. One is that Mikey-poo’s Mommy told him to come up out of the basement for a peanut butter sandwich and some Kool-Aid, the other is that he has a latrine to clean and mop with police call afterward!

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Considering that his IP shows that he is in Kuwait, I’d say he’s either a contractor with a chip on his shoulder or his parents are deployed there. If there’s a one-hour time limit for personal internet use, as someone else pointed out, he greatly exceeded that and then suddenly decided to quit, which sounds suspiciously like he was told it was past his nap time.

        And then the inconsistencies stick out a lot in his references to various things, like 2 yrs short of 20 and he may go for 43, then the ignorance about SHARP classes, and references to a ‘unit’ but no verification of what he does. Yet he’s so willing to give us hints. What is his unit? All you get from him is twaddle, so I’d say he’s not in the service at all.

        But that’s just speculation on my part.

        • Old Trooper says:

          I think you’re right, because he ignored me calling him out, earlier, as to him being in 18 years and referring to himself as a “bullet catcher”. He’s full of shit.

    • Flagwaver says:

      The Banhammer is used for people who are actual problems. Markie Mark there is just an annoyance.

      You don’t shoot a puppy when it piddles on the carpet while you are potty training it.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Very true. Flagwaver! As I see it, Mikey-poo’s presence today has made this thread fun, kinda like the “Whack-a-Mole” game in an arcade or carnival where you’d pound the “mole” on its head with a padded mallet for points and tickets. Every time Boy Wonder popped up here today, it seemed like there was a rush to see who could get the first hit!

  2. Hack Stone says:

    My first comment, as a retired Marine, regarding this thread is……she showed bad judgment. She may have had good intentions with the Toys For Tots aspect, but if the event was officially affiliated with the Toys For Tots program, some people may have inferred that she is an active duty Marine. More importantly, were the roller skates black patent leather?

    Completely off topic, I was heading back to Stately Stone Manor earlier this afternoon, and the satellite radio was playing Candle In The Wind. For some reason, I had an inclination to order so Red Hat software from a small minded disadvantaged company in Bethesda MD.

  3. Scotty says:

    The only thing altered about that uniform is the skirt. Everything else is regulation and shit that she didn’t earn. When she first posted this photo, she was hazed for it. she sent me her dd-214 and told me the story od the TOT fundraiser. I made an agreement with her not to post the photo again and I wouldn’t expose her for SV.. I caught holy hell for doing that. But I’m a man of my word. Then about three months later, I did something stupid and flirted with her in a pm one night. My wife saw this and went off. I was in the wrong and knew it . I made amends with my wife and we blocked her. about two months later, Some Jarhead posted that photo in a Marine group. I still spoke up and said that she was a legit Marine. Come to find out. She knew about the knucklehead posting the photo. And instead of raising hell with that jarhead. She decided to bash my name and try hiding behind the flirtatious pm. Wrong move, That is why she has been exposed. I should have done it 6 months ago. Also, She didn’t turn me down. That’s what really pissed the wife off about her.

    Now I’ve wasted enough time on this low profile case. Time to roll on.

    When I’m right, I stand by it. When I’m wrong, I abide by it. I was VERY wrong flirting with this girl. And I apologize, for that. Especially to my wife.
    But I’m also right in tagging this as Stolen Valor. She is a Marine Corps Vet that was representing a Marine Corps function. USMCR own the trademark for Toys for Tots. This was not an acting gig. Her first claim was that it was a charity fundraiser.

    • rb325th says:

      Scotty, you should have passed this on to someone else to handle given the history… Otherwise, yes she is wrong as hell. This whole bullshit story about the Toys For Tots campaign, (even IF that is real) I seem to recall us busting out a Phony Marine who was wearing shit he did not earn as well, but at least he did not alter the uniform other than to make it fit over his whale carcass of a body.
      You are absolutely correct in that she wore the USMC Insigia as well as Rank and Awards she had never earned. This was not a “Roller Derby Costume” as claimed, and she was absolutely in the wrong.
      Just a reccomendation as a friend and someone who has known you for some time now… Don’t do it again, not with someone you have any kind of history with. Let someone else handle it! Especially for such a “low profile case”.

      • Scotty says:

        Great Advice rb325th. I will deff. take this into consideration if ever there is another exposure where I’m personally involved in.

  4. Toasty Coastie says:

    Think of it like this….the more Sweet Pea Mark L. continues, the higher Google Alter Placement Miss Roller Derby Queen becomes 😈

  5. ArmyATC says:

    Looks like we found little Markie L! I thought he said he was in the desert?


  6. Sgt. Jordan says:

    I dont see people getting upset when partially clothed women wear a dress blues blouse showing a ton of cleavage, they didnt earn the uniform nor is being worn correctly. Scroggins was a good hawker knew her stuff. Before people open their mouths they should first find out what they are talking about. I was one of the very few 5924s and remember when Lori the first wm 5924 showed up and she did outstanding.

    • NHSparky says:

      Look up the phrase, “DISTINCTIVE UNIFORM ITEMS.”

      Get back to us when you understand that concept, “Sergeant.”

      • Hondo says:

        And while you’re at it, you might want to Google 18 USC 702 as well.

        I’m pretty sure “authorized wear” does NOT include wearing unearned rank, unearned decorations, or a uniform modified to look like the military equivalent of a “French maid” outfit.

    • Just An Old Dog says:

      Good grief, This was just a small blip on the radar of stolen valor. Even the lady admitted that she might have done things a bit differently.
      As petty as it seems it still was wrong.
      All that her “defenders” have done was drag this shit out and keep it in the spotlight.

  7. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    P.S. THIS is the type of Soldier I would picture Mikey-poo as:

  8. NHSparky says:

    Lori, save yourself the time and money you do not have.

    You have no case. Period. Don’t even threaten, because you have no idea how high the bar is for “libelslander” to actually win a case (hint: real fucking high.)

    And on that, I’m out. Not SV, but definitely a jackwagon.

  9. nbcguy54 says:

    I thought we were done with this.
    Now poor Jonn has to get the mop bucket out again and clean up the slime trail.

  10. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    I didn’t think there was much here when it was first posted and I still don’t think there is much here MarkL notwithstanding….

    I am going to be the guy who pisses in the punch bowl I guess, Scotty is a good man but this smells like a conflict of interest to me.

    We all know the definition of that conflict of interest, any unknown or hidden reality that could have the appearance of a secondary interest creating a risk to judgment or corruption.

    If someone has a personal involvement, no matter how limited in scope, that needs to be revealed at the top of the information not later post-facto in comments.

    I’m not telling anyone how to act, I’m just stating if this was some liberal bullshit and you guys here found out that halfway through the conversation that “oh yeah” there was some personal interest at stake you know goddamn well you would be all over that shit. I’ve seen it here, the appearance of the conflict is enough to cast aspersions on motive.

    No offense intended Scotty I read your site regularly and I understand your passion, I just think in this case you might have disclosed this to Jonn and let Jonn tell the tale of the personal involvement, as limited as it was by your own admission, and reveal the balance.

    I apologize to you Scotty if you are offended, that’s not my intent here to be offensive. But your admission of flirtatious comments post-facto is a bit unseemly to me.

    • Scotty says:

      No Offense taken Veritas. I understand that I dropped the ball on this one. And got some fatherly advice from Jonn in doing so. Which will be utilized on all future exposures.
      She has tried to turn this around to make it look like I have a personal vendetta against her. The only thing personal about it to me was the fact that she knew the photo had been re-posted . and instead of raising hell with the person who posted it. She decided to not only bash my name . But insult may wife too. but most importantly, She broke the agreement that we had about the photo. That is what prompt me to file for her FOIA.
      She is trying to make it sound like she turned me down . If that was the case, My wife would have thanked her. Those who know my spousal unit know that she is a straight shooter.

  11. Joe Williams says:

    Lori is a thief, stealing from Gunnies and the Drill Instuctors and from all the Marines that actually earned the medals she was wearing that she did not earn. Question,Lori would wear this “costume” on a Marine base? As a noload(No Longer On Active Duty)Marine I am offended by this.This regs for wearing the uniform remain the same for active or inactive Marines. Lori have you complained and had the picture removed? Joe

  12. Rena says:

    That bitch in heat!!!! is butt fucking ugly…Her or anyone associated with her better not cross my path!!! My husband got dealt with by me….He had to go get his eyes checked!!! Come to find out his vision is very poor…As we all can see from the retarded looking Forest ranger !!!!!!!!!

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      Welcome to TAH, Mrs. Scottie.

    • Angel Vargesko says:

      Hi Mrs. Scottie , Good call on the eye exam as I was wondering what the hell was going on with your Hubby & the Butt Ugly Retarded Forest Ranger …. Oh well life goes on and hopefully the moronic bitch in heat will grow a brain and act her age. Sad when one who has Served acts like she did .

      • Rena says:

        Angel…to much flirting in a pm box..It was only a brief conversation…But I put a stop to it fast!!!! I called her out and made her apologize to me personally on my timeline

      • Rena says:

        For one thing she was and still is a poser…When I brought the pm to her attention…she back peddled..Trying to clean it up..Scott says he was only flirting…He got chewed up for that..As for her…She tried to kiss ass with me and it didn’t work…She is so pathetic and miserable. She told me her husband left her..I told her he probably caught her in pm’s with men is why he left…LOL..Then she said that men made her dress that way and that she was raped by a marine…Bunch of bullshit!!!!

        • nbcguy54 says:

          Now that’s an excuse for posery I don’t think we’ve heard – raped by someone in the (insert your favorite service) so to relive the trauma, I think I’ll dress like one.
          Jonn and Scotty need to add that to the “official” list of reasons.

  13. Joe Williams says:

    Of course she does not have a record of reporting the “rape”? Could be caught in the act and then cried rape? In Today’s military the male is guilty before trail. From all the BS she has said at here and other sites it is hard to believe anything she says. IF Lori was raped why would she dress as she does? Ladies, I need your imput about this. Joe

    • Rena says:

      If a women is Raped..She will not talk about it so freely and she sure would not dress to expose unnecessary skin

      • Toasty Coastie says:

        @Mrs.Scottie and Joe Williams~

        Please do not turn the this topic into victim shaming because of how a woman dresses if she was indeed raped.

        I do not know if she was, as I have seen no proof whats so ever, but saying things like if she had been raped she would not dress as she did in the photo is out of line and beneath us.

        Whether a rape victim would speak freely of being raped depends on the person. I personally know a woman who was brutally raped while in service who was blamed for it time and again by the Command. She most definitely does not speak openly about it simply because of the shame and trauma she suffered.

        There are some women who have been raped that do indeed dress wearing short skirts and openly speack about it etc as a way of taking back the power that was taken from them by their attacker. Again, I will state I do not know if the Roller Derby Queen was raped, as I have not seen any reports or evidence. But if she was, attacking her on that front because of how she is dressed is flat out wrong.

        Stick with the issue, which is that she is an embellisher who shat all over a decent career by altering her uniform and wearing awards and honours she does not rate please.

        • Rena says:

          Bullshit!!! Take your philosophy else where toasty coasty!!!!!…I am a women and I know about women things…I know many rape victims..You can stick up for that trash if you want to..you do not address me and insult my intelligence or my gender with you crap…And you do not tell me how to talk or what the topic is…if You dont like what I say..close you fucking eyes and go on by..That retarded skank trash can go to hell alone with who ever covers for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Joe Williams says:

            T.C.,I brought this up is her ,lies er embellistments from what she has said on other sites. So the shadow of doubth falls on VA cliams and her discharge. A no is a no to me is a no. The few women I have met were very closed mouth about the attack,the women dressed down ie drowdy. Long dreses etc.. Joe

            • Toasty Coastie says:

              @Joe Williams~
              You asked a fair question and I did try to answer it from my own personal experience.

              Many rape victims do keep silent and dress reservedly generally speaking, and don’t ever speak about what happened to them.
              But there are others who take this trauma and become activists to educate folks about rape.

              Still there are others who completely go off the deep end and become very “wild” in a misguided attempt to prove they are not a victims.
              How men and women handle rape is deeply personal.

              My whole point of my post was that whether she was raped or not has no bearing on the topic at hand, which is she stole valor and embellished her career.

              Please except my apology….rape is a hugely personal topic for me.

          • OWB says:

            Uhm – not exactly the correct way to engage with those who post here, Rena. You are addressing a group of people which includes victims of rape, those who have investigated and prosecuted criminal rape charges, and many whose female credentials are at least as good as yours. Besides all that, you are insulting people who have defended your husband.

            You really might want to rethink that position you just took in attacking one of ours here, Rena. We tend to give a little slack to newbies, but do not take personal attacks on veteran posters particularly gracefully. In case you are confused by the lingo, you are the newbie here, Rena. Your relationship to Scotty does not get you a pass on attacking one of our own.

          • Toasty Coastie says:

            @Mrs. Scottie~

            First off, I am a female, second I spoke to you with respect. I am in no way defending this POSer…I simply asked you and Joe Williams to not victim shame if she was indeed raped. No where did I insult you nor did I stick up for this woman. I said many times that I do not know if she was raped or not, and gave examples of my personal knowledge on the subject.

            I am sorry you have a personal issue with the Embellisher and as I respect Scottie and the Mission of this site, I will not engage in personal attacks with you. And for the record, I did not “tell you” how to talk about a subject. I asked you politely to stay on topic which is that this woman embellished her career and Stole Valor. Whether she was raped or not is not the issue here.

            Please do not respond back to me with vulgarity and insults as I am on your side as well as Scotties.

    • O-4E says:

      “Rape” is the race card of the female gendeer

      Every sh*t bag female Soldier will resuly to a “rape made me do it” claim if it suits them the deflect from their sh*tbag behavior

      And take anyone down with them

      Which makes investigating and believing actual rape claims so much harder

  14. Scotty says:

    Great Point !



  15. Joe Williams says:

    Scotty, this a part of her Stolen Valor. She is stealing the Honor of the Marines she served with. As been found many times here SV is the tip of the iceberg. Joe

    • ByrdMan says:

      I don’t really like where you’re trying to this Joe.

    • OWB says:

      Joe, I may understand how you are thinking here, and do not completely disagree with your thinking, assuming my assessment is correct. That said, not sure it serves any useful purpose to go down that road with this one.

      In other words, some of us simply do not deal well with soap operas, and this may have passed out of our comfort zone some time ago.
