Harry King; phony para-rescue PJ

| April 13, 2015


Some of our friends in the Air Force PJ community sent us this fellow Harry King who tells folks that he’s was Para-rescue in the Air Force, a “Red Beret”, he says. Just like a SEAL, he says – the first screenshot is at a dating website, the second has been edited since the PJ community started asking questions about him;

Harry King Cupid


I’m pretty sure that both SEALs and PJs would take offense at his statement that PJs are the equivalent of Navy SEALs. But, he wouldn’t know that anyway;


He was an Aircraft Armament Systems Specialist for 14 months – discharged as an E-1 Airman Basic. He probably couldn’t keep up with the rigors of the Air Force corporate lifestyle.

    Self-deprecating? More like self-defecating.

      I’m self-defecating.

      I mean I don’t need any help. But I eat a fair amount of green vegetables.

        Apparently the is plugged. Instead of a dose of stool softener…I’ll buy the LIQUID PLUMBER. Directions:one bottle a day until you need a colostomy bag, or new asshole..

  2. Climb to Glory says:

    Fucking shitbird. Why is it these phonies claiming to be high speed/low drag types turn out to have barley been in the military a day. Fucking losers. By the way, do chicks really give a shit about any of that anyway.

  3. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Douche-nozzle….although I hear from GT that this guy will be the APL northern contracts manager due to his proximity to the Canadian border…

  4. Jordan Rott says:

    The CIA must be holding onto the rest of that FOIA

  5. 3/17 Air Cav says:

    Any bets that the claim about college degrees are bullshit too? Handsome and charming? More like full of himself, and a full fledged Shitbird to top it off!

    “I also have a really cool pair of purple crocs!”

    /OK, you just went Full HOMO. Bitch.

    • CLAW131 says:

      Don’t forget to include he likes water adventures (water sports?) and his favorite book is “The Velveteen Rabbit”

      Heavily decorated with an Air Force Training Ribbon.

      Is that the same thing as the Army’s ASR? (Gay Pride Ribbon)

    • Skippy says:

      Use your Boots ! ! ! ! ! :). :). :). :).

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      ANY adult human male that owns purple Crocs needs to SURRENDER HIS MAN CARD ASAP and be known as a “Pro-Hildebeast Neuter Boy”.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I don’t really think that an adult human male owning and wearing a pair of purple Crocs is gay.

      I think it’s QUEER.
      Very, very queer.

  8. Andy11M says:

    Wow. He did all that PJ training in just 14 months? And then he was so badass they discharged him? Wonder what secret squirrel stories he has? /sarc

  9. Combat Historian says:

    Ladies, please stay away from this LOSER, because he is a LOSER !!!

  10. Skippy says:

      • Skippy says:

        I’m finally forwarding the info to our group Admin. They even set up a page for this Dip-Stick. Lol…

  11. Guys…

    I KNOW this clown. He lived just down the hall from me in the 379 MMS dorm (Barracks 514) at Wurtsmith.

    I remember him well, but I am trying to contact my former brother in law – who actually worked with him – to confirm some recollections. Stay tuned…


    • ChipNASA says:

      ….”to confirm some recollections”…
      (conversation goes something like this..)

      Ex-BIL: “Hey Mike…Yeah, remember you were asking about Harry King that loser SOS we knew up at Worstmuth?… ”

      Mike: “Yeah..”

      Ex-BIL: “Right, he totally takes it up the ass. He did then and probably does still today. Guy was a total sack. Looks like that little fuzz he grew on his chin is a ball scratcher or taint tickler.”

      Mike: “Yeah, that’s what I remember. He was a total tool. Complete knob gobbler.
      Cool. Thanks”


      /this has been an dramatic interpretation of a possible future event. Have A Nice Day

      😀 😀

    • USAF_Pride says:

      Hey, I lived in that dorm. When do I get my “red beret”!?!?

  12. Oldav8or says:

    OMFG! To think this asshat could have wound up loading weapons on MY B-52 (if he ever managed to escape WORSTmuth!)!

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    He claims to hold degrees in education but cannot punctuate correctly, mistakes sentence fragments for sentences, and seems not to know that Special Olympic is not the same as Special Olympics. Now, in a comment, we all make errors, but this clown’s errors were made in an autobiographical sketch of himself. I particularly liked the comma omission in this line of his: “I have a house, a car and a lot of tools that look very cool and dirty.” I bet they are. It’s probably the truest line he wrote.

    • David says:

      Dirty tools are like a dirty weapon – anathema and punishable by death or being forced to watch Rosie O’Donnell engage in sex with Barbara Mikulski,.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

        DUDE!!! Next time give us brothers/sisters a BRAIN BLEACH WARNING before posting something as demented as that!!!

  14. Dennis - not chevy says:

    I can let the misspelling of Wurtsmith AFB slide; but, how does one spend over a year in the Air Force and get discharged as an E-1?
    NJP much?

    • Hondo says:

      That, or as part of the sentence of a court-martial, would be my guess. But I could be wrong.

      • digitalbrownshirt says:

        He’d auto promote to E-2 at six months, then he could have gotten Article 15 for some infraction that would drop him back to E-1, followed by getting the boot if the reduction in rank didn’t correct the issue. Or a flat out court martial. Has his Discharge been verified, because with the Article 15 scenario I could see him getting an Honorable, but not with the court martial scenario. If the time was during a reduction in force he could just ask to be let out after the reduction.

        • Hondo says:

          The fact that he’s been discharged has been verified (see the NA 13164 page above, AKA his FOIA). However, the type of discharge is not information that NPRC routinely releases. We thus don’t actually know what type of discharge (Honorable, General, OTH, BCD, DD) he received.

  15. Eggs says:

    Can’t even get the beret color right. Ugh.

    • ChipNASA says:

      Yes you are kind of nitpicking. Most folks wouldn’t know the difference.

      USAF Para-Rescue PJs AFSC 1T2X1 PARARESCUE- Maroon beret with Pararescue Flash

      United States Air Force Combat Control Teams, singular Combat Controller, (CCT) (AFSC 1C2X1)scarlet (red) beret and CCT flash.

      • ChipNASA says:

        Oh and Eggs, I didn’t mean to sound snotty….just more info…all 6 of the authorized USAF berets.


        • Hondo says:

          Chip, no offense . . . but some of the berets in that photo look like they were shaped by Chef Boy-ar-dee. (smile)

        • Eggs says:

          Ain’t no thing Chip. We just don’t see to many fake PJs on TAH. And where I live (Tucson) wouldn’t be a very good town to try to pull nonsense like that.

        • CC Senor says:

          OK, what the heck is a “weather parachutist”? I thought we used Doppler radar to determine weather at various altitudes.

          • ChipNASA says:

            We have combat weather personnel. Just like folks that call in the air support, these guys do weather operations in the forward combat operating areas

            1W0X2 – Special Operations Weather (Combat Weather)

            Special Operations Weather, commonly referred to in the Air Force as Combat Weather, used to be a special duty assignment available only to trained and certified Air Force Weathermen (AFSC 1W0X1). In January 2009, the Air Force decided to make this duty a separate AFSC. Before this new AFSC, weather Airmen applied to become special operations weathermen after already being in the Air Force. Now, recruiters

            can enlist trainees directly into the 1W0X2 special operations weathermen career field since the new Air Force specialty code is now in the enlisted classification directory.

            1W052 Journeymen assigned to special operations units observe, collect and analyze atmospheric, oceanographic, space, terrestrial, riverine and littoral environmental information from data sparse, sensitive, non-permissive, hostile and data denied areas and predict future conditions. They provide tailored analyses, forecasts and predictions of mission impact during the joint operational planning process and military decision making process to enhance the effectiveness of military operations and training. They integrate tailored analyses, forecasts, and predictions of mission impact into the joint operational planning, military decision making, and command and control processes to enhance the effectiveness of military operations and training. Journeymen operate atmospheric, oceanographic, space, terrestrial, riverine

            and littoral environmental equipment and monitor specific parameters affecting military operating areas, ranges, and routes. Journeymen forecast local area and mesoscale weather features and alert decision-makers of severe weather potential. They prepare and deliver briefings and provide mission execution forecasts to aircrews, warfighters, and weapons system operators. Journeymen conduct environmental collection operations, perform tactical mission planning and preparation, prepare personnel and equipment for military operations. They conduct reconnaissance and surveillance of routes, areas, zones and objectives of interest. They operate ground based sensors and unmanned aerial systems to support reconnaissance. Journeymen train SOF, coalition, and foreign national forces to conduct limited observing and survey host nation meteorological capabilities. They deploy by land, sea or air to participate in the full spectrum of military operations. They use demolitions to create or remove obstacles to maneuver and to prepare tactical sites and maintain qualification on primary assigned weapons.

          • Bobo says:

            We had one assigned to us in Bosnia in 2001. Let’s say that we weren’t impressed.

            • GDContractor says:

              I used to forecast the weather when I lived in Kodiak, AK. Every day I would forecast rain, wind, and fog. When I was wrong, nobody complained.

              In Wardak Province Afghanistan in the winter, I would always look at the sat imagery over the Med. When you see counterclockwise rotation in the Med, expect snow in A’stan 2 days later. It was accurate every time.

          • Hondo says:

            Ah, Chip – c’mon. We know you’re hiding the fact that that’s the USAFR specialty title for those guys who ride the dropsonds when they’re dropped from the Hurricane Chaser aircraft! (smile)

  16. C2Show says:

    If I was this guy, I would pull a Chevy and claimed he was just kidding…he was a PJ for CAP unit or part of a Pararescue roleplaying club.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      A PJ LARP’er?

      That’s awesome…

      • ChipNASA says:

        “Oh I’m just a LARP’er”

        OK, Now THAT’S the first time we’ve heard that excuse….

        Jonn/TSO/Hondo, add that to the FAQs

        /lightning bolt lightning bolt lightning bolt.

  17. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    WOW, 14 whole MONTHS on AF AD. What’s next, will he claim to have been “Sheep-Dipped” into some SoopoerdooperseekritskwirrelwonderRangerScoutSniper ASSignment, or will he bawl and “Lawer-up” with the Dutch Rudder Gang? I hope to see the latter, those that hook up with the DRG always crash and burn in a big pile of shit!

    • johca says:

      The Sheep-Dipped status doesn’t hide the got trained, qualified and awarded AFSC records and there is no record of any first term airman or one enlistment PJ being Sheep-Dipped for any purpose during any year after 1947. There is also record of at least one unit of assignment as a PJ too.

  18. Pinto Nag says:

    I would think the easiest way to let him prove his claims would be to strap him into the proper gear and have him exit from a plane at the proper altitude. If he’s telling the truth, he’s fine. If not, well…

    • AW1Ed says:

      As in Night HALO? I like the way you think, PN. More likely would be a Night HANO, which works for me if I don’t have to clean up the splat.

      • Pinto Nag says:

        It works pretty good in the horse world, anyway. You say you ride hunter – jumper. Great! You do cross-country. Cool! Gates, fences, no problem? Sure! …and then someone goes out and set’s up a four foot jump, and stands there grinning at you. It’s ‘put up or shut up’ time!! 😀

        • AW1Ed says:

          Believe it or not I got all of that, PN. Wife was the volunteer coordinator for a therapeutic horse riding program for handicapped kids. As such I was “volunteered” often, and am well versed in the horsey set.

      • ChipNASA says:

        HANO!! FUCKING Genius!!

        /I am so stealing that

        • AW1Ed says:

          Sarcasm is just another service I offer. Just use it for forces of good.

        • USAF Ret says:

          Then there is LANO (Low Altitude No Opening) we are burying an Old Time PJ tomorrow at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. He retired as an E-8. He survived two; yes count them TWO, LANO jumps. Other PJs would ask him when he was going to do the other three to become the Initial LANO qualified Jumper. He would just look at you and give you a one-fingered wave.

          Then there is this POS who is not even worth the horse shit that this PJ mucked from his stalls. Yes, he loved his horses.

          Well he made his final jump last week and is being laid to rest Tuesday afternoon. He never got LANO qualified and I know he is up there wave his finger at me for mentioning it.

          Blue Skies! If you do not know what that is; you are just a stinking leg. But I mean that in the most endearing manner.

  19. JohnE says:

    Wonder if JohCa over at military.com is tracking this clown…he is the Don Shipley of the PJ world. Will drop him a line…

    • johca says:

      I typical do get a call or email about PJ posers, but seldom put forth the effort to do a FOIA or publically expose most of them.

      When the class records and unit rosters go back to 1947 combined with in most years no more than 300 serving PJs in active duty and AF reserve components (AF Reserve and Air Guard) in any given year its pretty easy to determine the not a PJ. If they actually served in any capacity in the military is often more work than necessary for me to be concerned with.

  20. Mike Kozlowski says:

    …Okay, talked briefly to the brother in law, and he remembers him but just vaguely. So with that in mind, I will simply say that I remember two specific stories about Harry, neither of them at all complimentary to his reputation or judgement. Not at all sure if I should post them publicly, so I will wait on Higher Authority to approve.


  21. Mike W says:

    You’ve got to be “FOIAKing” kidding me 🙂

    BTW: No hats past the red line


  22. Tom says:

    As a former USAF AMMO troop, I do enjoy seeing a load toad embarrass himself

  23. Bill R. says:

    Aircraft Armament Systems Specialist. He was training to load bombs on B-52s. Back then, folks were usually given a second chance to adapt if they committed some offense. He obviously lost a stripe through some official action. He probably failed his CDCs as well and was discharged. For the record, you only had to score a 60 on your end of course test.

    • USAF_Pride says:

      Unless he had a PRP violation. On a SAC base, that would get you bounced or retrained really quick!!

  24. Mike Kozlowski says:

    ….Okay – first one, then I gotta get to work:

    At the time I was driving an early 70s Pontiac Ventura, affectionately known due to its gawdawful color as the Yellow Peril. The left rear quarter panel was rusting through, but was in one piece…until one morning I got up, went to the car, and there was a remarkably foot-shaped hole in it. I was a little annoyed, and reported said damage to the Law Enforcement folks. They said come on down and make a report, and very polite and professional LE took my report. After he got the details and a picture, he asked me if I could think of anybody who might have done that. I couldn’t right off the bat, and said so. He pulled out a file marked ‘Dormitory 514’, opened it, looked through it for a moment, then asked me, “What about Airman King?”

    Hadn’t actually thought of him, but by that point we’d bumped heads a couple times and I had to admit it was possible. Wound up the paperwork and went home to start patching it up. A few days later, King snags me in the dayroom, wanting to know why I told the LEs I thought he’d damaged the car. I pointed out to him that the LEs had, for whatever reason, volunteered HIS name. He sputtered for a minute or so, then stomped away, muttering all manner of maledicta and questioning my ancestry.

    Never did find out who did it, but I also had no further run ins with him. Make of that what thou wilt.


  25. Green Thumnb says:

    This dude looks all kind of gay.

    • TankBoy says:

      yes, he does. More importantly, he is sporting the leather jacket. Not a leather vest, but it is cold in Buffalo. it does show some club logos, so is probably safe to assume some of the fabrication patches and insignia are on there. And if he has a leather jacket and homo-erotic merkin style goatee, odds are he has a Harley and rides with a club! Maybe he haloed in and pulled Monkress out of the shit during that vicious firefight in Bosnia/Iraq/Stan/Nam/Central American drug war. I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. this guy has way too much sleazy douchebag oozing out his pores to be just a poser. there is more to him.

  26. Green Thumb says:

    I feel sorry for this man’s kids.

    There is also a very strong chance this turd is a professional conman.

  27. Green Thumb says:

    I bet this loser gets a lot of action on those gay dating sites.
