David Moore; phony Airborne Sergeant First Class

| January 28, 2015

David Moore

Scotty sends us a link to his latest, this David Moore fellow who claims that he was an airborne sergeant first class while he was in his motorcycle club. The word is that he brags that he was in the Special Forces (aren’t we all special these days?)

The National Personnel Records Center says, no he wasn’t.

David Moore 2-1

He was a perfectly honorable buck sergeant with a perfectly honorable stint in the Army Reserves as an image interpreter in Ohio. Well, it was all honorable until he decided to be something that he’s not.

    In Florida.


    I wonder if that MC he belongs to is the one that used to be run by Phil Monkress. You know, the one that is riddled with posers.

    What a sack of shit.

    Image interpreter. huh?

    Maybe he can interpret the imagine of my pissing in his face.

        This dude has a lot in common with the “Big Turd” Keith Riley Keeton.

        And I love the leather business.

        I wonder if he cuts that particular Florida Poser MC a deal or group discount on assless chaps?

        That would explain a lot.

    • Frank howe says:

      I was a member and state officer to that MC. Notice WAS for the exact reasons you stated. (Disgusted)

  2. SJ says:

    He could team up with Chevy.

  3. Hondo says:

    For anyone interested, here’s the link to Scotty’s full article.


    As Jonn notes above, he claims to run a business that does “private investigations and protective services” these days. Personally, I think I’d take any such business I might have requiring either service elsewhere – but that’s just me.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Would you be hiring Ambassador Worldwide Protective Services (their motto is “have You Seen My Gun?”), or Prudential Services?


  4. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Another “proud” member of the Special Feces who bucking for membership into Task Force Rat Brain. Bet he runs around with Phildo and ShOrTbUsWiNdOwLiCkEr41 swapping stories and other bodily fluids.

  5. Nicki says:

    What is up with these shitjobs? Why are there SO many turds in the toilet bowl? Did the Stolen Valor gods eat too much fiber and give birth to a mountain of fecal badness?

  6. Martinjmpr says:

    Ah, another MC phony. Starting to think these groups exist solely as a place for fakers to congregate. Hell, it’s easier to fake credentials to an MC than it is to fake a VSO and we KNOW how easy those are to fake!

    One thing struck me as odd on the 2-1: One of my 3 MOS’s is Military Police (the other two: 11B and 96B, intel analyst) But I’ve never seen a job title of “patrol leader” in the MP’s. On “white hat” (law enforcement) duty the senior NCO on patrol is called the “Patrol Supervisor” but that’s not a TO&E job title, it’s a duty position like desk sergeant and it rotates with each shift.

    The TO&E leadership positions in a Combat Support MP company (the only kind I was ever in) would be team leader (usually an E-5), squad leader (almost always an E-6), Platoon Sergeant (E6 or E-7) and first sergeant (E-8.) I was never in a “white hat” unit so I don’t know if their TO&E included a “patrol leader” but I’ve never heard of it. Wonder if a “patrol leader” in a LE unit is the same thing as “team leader” in a CS unit? Any other MP’s out there know?

    • MSGRetired says:

      No you are correct, Team Leaders CS. LE is Patrol Supervisor. Could be a screwed up clerk who typed it in, or he altered it.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        The only place I know where “patrol leader” is a job title is in the boy scouts! Maybe that’s what he meant? 😉

    • 3E9 says:

      Agreed. I was a 95B many moons ago and have never heard that title.

    • tonya byrd says:

      David Moore. 44 years wants to retire claims he is an E-8 in Damascus, siria. Is this the story you got. Son staying with guardian and he is 14 years old, from Ohio. Can you tell me that is something close to that. As kind for money to get back home claims he can retire.

  7. Mark Lauer says:

    Okay, that’s it! I’m tired of just being an ordinary Marine Veteran! From now on I am a super SECRET Marine Veteran! In fact, my mission in the Marine Corps was so fucking secret EVEN I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT WAS!! So, when people ask me what I did—-I DON’T KNOW!!!!

    • ChipNASA says:

      Since I made SSgt in the AF, I carried around a clipboard almost ALL the time.
      Secret: there as usually some bullshit papers on it.



      S= Seek Cover
      K= Keep Quiet
      A= Accept No Responsibility
      T= Take No Action
      E= Evade

      I had no idea what I was *supposed* to be doing and I worked really hard an remaining ignorant.

      /OK maybe not so much but still…. 😀 😀

      • Dennis - not chevy says:

        Don’t forget, the first step in volunteering for any detail is to be caught empty handed. One must always carry a tool, piece of paper, notebook, or clipboard. Oh, and always walk quickly, like your backside’s on fire.

        • CLAW131 says:

          That’s right. Best of all is carrying a attache case or a map bag with lots of magic markers and grease pencils sticking out of the little pen holders.

          If not, the grease trap at the mess hall has your name written all over it.

          Being a permanent sham artist does take some forethought and practice.

          • 3/17 Air Cav says:

            Claw……..Remember the AIT days when the last formation was Saturday am? If you made it thru that one you were free till Sunday night at seven?

            I was assigned KP duty along with five or six others and told to report to the mess hall. I made sure I was tail end charlie. The other guys reported, I kept going snuck into my barracks and waited for the formation to be dismissed. Once that happened I was free till Sunday. I was never missed! Planning I tell you, it takes solid planning to be a sham artist or a skater!

            • CLAW131 says:

              Uh-Oh, that sounds like the actions of a shiftless, pious, Viet Nam vet (smile) who shirked their assigned duty.

              You’re in trouble now. Certain people who troll this blog (in hopes of being awarded an ARCOM) are certain to e-mail the big wigs at DOD to report your slacking off.

              Expect a knock on your door in the near future from the feds or at least an unexpected IRS audit on this year’s tax return.

              • 3/17 Air Cav says:

                Claw……..Sometimes I wonder how I made it thru my military career unscathed. I must admit I was one of the best at getting out of bullshit details.

                Once things settle down here at home I plan on taking a road trip. Since you and Sparks are kind of in my AO, I just might make a visit. I’ve got some good stories to tell. Providing you. Two have the proper security clearance

                • CLAW131 says:

                  Fine with me. The Claw Motel is always open with the light left on. It’s just a few miles east of I-15 here in the Snake River Valley.

                  • 317 Air Cav says:

                    Claw…..I know I’m off topic, but I can’t resist. Last one I promise.

                    Remember having two pairs of boots while going thru training? One with a white dot on the upper rear of. Each boot? Well I got tired of spit shining a pair of boots every nite. Well I erased the white shoe polish. Dot. And replaced it with a piece of white tape. I never wore the spit shined boots from in front of my locker box. I just moved the tape back and forth. That my man is how I made Sgt. E-5 in 15 months. The rest is history as they say. Now that’s a sham artist.

        • JimW says:

          I used to select people to fill vacancies on the fence line, after a while everyone who saw my jeep coming would duck and hide. I think I fell for that busy man look a few times myself. And we did call them volunteers. Kinda funny now, when I hear you say it like that.

  8. Beretverde says:

    SF was hiring when he was in. He chose not to go. Now he says he did and graduated. Eff him.

  9. MSGRetired says:

    Nasty Fucking LEG. I would love to give him some Honorary Blood Wings, Right of that ForeHead !

  10. Six (06) years as an enlisted man, but no Good Conduct Medal?

    Was he discharged under less than honorable conditions?

    If so, how did he manage to retain his pay grade of E-5, and/or his rank of Sergeant?

  11. Hondo says:

    He was a reservist, JRM. He didn’t have enough time active to qualify for the GCM, and some USAR units do a p!ss-poor job awarding their soldiers the reserve equivalent (the ARCAM) properly.

  12. streetsweeper says:

    Old school, our squad leaders were either AJE-5 or E5, platoon leader was at least a 2nd LT, platoon sergeants could be E6 or E7 and 1st SG’s E8’s…

    He went through Huachuca, regardless thats a primo school assignment. Dumb mutha fucker…Way to fuck a decent record all too hell. I’d given my left nut just to get to Germany, geezus.

  13. Green Thumb says:

    We already know which ones Phildo and the “Big Turd” Keith Keeton are, but a free beer to the one that can identify this turd.

  14. JimW says:

    DoD should have a special national data base listing posers, their lies, and the truth. Might help reduce the numbers of posers if there was at least some consequences. I know listing posers here is great, but, how many people really know this site exist. Just thinking 350,000,000+ in the US. And a lot of people don’t care about exposing posers. Unless a poser benefits financially, not much can be done to them, except discredit the few discovered here.
    Really frustrating at the overwhelming volume of posers. So my hats off to this site for what you do. It’s a start.

  15. TankBoy says:

    What’s funny, is there was just a somewhat heated discussion yesterday, or the day before, in which several guys in Military Bike clubs got all butt-hurt when comments were made about the posers riddling their ranks. And here we go again. It’s like every crazy sexy cool ninja type that ever served retired to Florida and became a biker. I bet during bike week down there you can’t spit without pissing off three seals, two green berets, and a couple force recon fellas. Probably enough ninjas in a three block radius of bars to fight World War 3. This, right here, is why they get no respect from me. They DO NOT police themselves, so become the lowest common denominator. This douchebag.

    • Jordan Rott says:

      If there is one thing I have learned from Veteran MC’s, It’s that every single Vietnam Vet was in Special Forces.

      • TankBoy says:

        yeah, I’m surprised bamboo isn’t endangered, all the cages that must have been built for all these guys to break out of. That, and the amount of deaths should be about 400k given all the entire units of special forces wiped out right before these guys were captured and stuck in the bamboo cages they then escaped.
        I actually had a drunken turd try this story on me in a bar in Louisville. Lucky for him I was the DD, so was sober and had some couth about me. As it was, I think I may have hurt his feelings a bit.

        • Jordan Rott says:

          Haha Pandas are going hungry after all those cages. I have the most respect for Vietnam Vets out every War Veteran because of the circumstances of that War and the way they were treated when returning home, it is a shame that the people who bullshit about their service the most seem to be Vietnam Vets. If people would just try to be Specialist without CIB/CABs, wings of any kind, EIBs, they would get alot further. That or if they were just honest about their service in the first place.

          • TankBoy says:

            I agree. I have said for years, and still maintain, a really good box kicker is worth a platoon of infantry or tanks. I had a boss that was a sniper, he agrees. It was fun being a gun slinger, but my tank wasn’t going a damned place without mechanics, bulk fuel, supply, Corpsmen to back us up, welders, ammo techs, communicators, EOD to clear the roads, etc. It’s all honorable. One of the kids in my company in Fallujah that I valued the most as a First Sergeant was an engineer/electrician. I recommended him for Warrant Officer, and think he would have made it were it not for the cancer that showed up and eventually killed him. He was an awesome young man, and had a significant impact, for one guy, on our company accomplishing all of our missions. He also saw some combat with the rest, but his biggest accomplishments were enabling the tankers doing his job. He was the first the command recommended for an award.

            • Hack Stone says:

              It’s a good thing that you remembered your comm guys. Thirty years later, and you are still thinking of me. We had some good times back then. The Wreck Of D-13 is a frequent story at the beer summits.

              Keep on trackin’, and remember Elaine Ricci in your prayers.


    • jonp says:

      Watch your ass, TankBoy. I’m a Force Recon Seal Green Beret Biker. I’m so high speed I ride ahead of my bike. That is when you can see me. Most of the time I’m on a super secret squirrel ninja mission and I’d tell you about them but they are still classified along with all of my medals and DD214 and I’d just have to kill you anyways

    I bet this clown gives Phildo a ride to work everyday.
