Rodney “Dan” Pratt; phony POW/Vietnam veteran

| April 15, 2015

Rodney Pratt (1)

Rodney “Dan” Pratt was sent to us by Scotty. Pratt get extra points for creativity – he claims that he was in the Hitler Youth at the end of World War II and that he changed his name from Hans Macher when he emigrated here in 1946, then a few years later he claims that he joined the US Army to fight in Korea. He stayed for thirty years, rising to the rank of Master Sergeant in the Army.

I don’t know about his time in Germany, but I know a little about the Army. For example, if there was any truth to his story, he would have earned a CIB each for the Korean War and Vietnam – but his little shadow box says that he earned three CIBs. He has the United Nations Korean War Service Medal and the US Korean War Service Medal, but he’s missing the Republic of Korea War Service Medal, which goes along with the other two. There’s the Vietnam War Service medal and no campaign stars, which is odd because there were always campaigns going on there. All of those service medals should be below the bottom row.

The Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency doesn’t list anyone by the name of Pratt or Macher as a Prisoner of War in Vietnam, so his tales of woe fall on deaf ears. But, it should be no surprise that he wasn’t a POW because the National Personnel Records Center says “Who?”

Rodney Pratt FOIA

That’s probably why he doesn’t know the difference between a CIB and a CAB;

    He is so adorable in that lil’ Nazi uniform.

    Jack Wad!

    • Derek says:

      What’s hilarious is that one was required to be 10 years old to join. Several of my relatives were in Young Maidens and HY….as a means of survival, not because it looked cool. What a dickhead.

  2. Oldav8or says:

    Sieg heil, fuckstick!

  3. Hondo says:

    Damn, another fake POW.

    For completeness, here are links to DPAA’s list of Vietnam POWs who (1) returned alive, and (2) escaped captivity, respectively. As Jonn notes above: there is no one by the last name of either “MACHER” or “PRATT” on either list. (These links are new due to the absorption of DPMO by DPAA, but the lists appear to be identical to those maintained by DPMO.)

    Returned Alive:

    Escaped Captivity:

    FWIW: a legit Korean War Vet’s official records may indeed lack any documentation showing award of the ROK War Service Medal, and thus the medal might not appear on a FOIA. The medal covered all US personnel who served in the Korean War proper, but wasn’t accepted by the US until 1999. It’s my understanding that a Korean War vet has to request it be added to their military records via one of the BCMRs for it to be added to their official records.

    Given the other problems with this guy’s story, though, I’m not buying his “Korean War Vet” claim without a whole lotta proof.

  4. sj says:

    Has to be one of the more creative ones? That quite a tale. Only 13 in a POW camp and they keep it that way by shooting the longest serving POW?

    He’s actually entitled to two NDSM’s since he was (supposedly) in Korea and Nam. But, alas, he wasn’t a sniper or a SlUrpLrRrper, and he is is a nasty LEG. Pffffftttt

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Hitler’s Yute Gruup, huh? That would make him mearing 90 by now, wouldn’t it? And he sho’ don’t look like he done hit dat age jes’ yet.

    What. A. Jackass.

    Nail him.

    • Hondo says:

      Ex-PH2: he could be as young as 80. Wikipedia says that the Hitler Youth included the Deutsches Jungvolk. Membership in the latter group was for ages 10-14. If he turned 10 in early 1945, he’d be 80 today.

      That said, the older photo on the article’s gallery page that’s in the Nazi uniform appears to be a bit older than 10 (click on one of the photos above, then click on the shadowbox page) certainly seems much older than 14 to me. But I guess that could be a relative.

      • Just an Old Dog says:

        I knew a bonifide Hitlerjugen WW2 Korea Vietnam USMC vet. He was a mustanger who retired as a Captain. Had an Iron Cross Bronnze Star and Purple Heart.
        If you went through Boot bamp at MCRD San Diego in the 80s to mid 90s there is a good chance he took your boot picture.

      • Skippy says:

        Hondo. I’ve seen this photo before I’m trying to remember where I’m taking a copy of it down to a buddy today at the U of A to look at the Turd is Full of Crapola

  6. Hondo says:

    Oh, and I just looove the guy’s clam of a 30-year career including service in Korea and Vietnam – while his shadow box has what appears to be a GCM with no clasps and an NDSM with no star. As the former Soviet comic Yakov Smirnoff might have said: “Eye . . . don’ tink zo.” (smile)

  7. Got to give the guy credit for the “I-was-a-Hitler-Youth” schtick to cover what the photo suggests would be some serious white sumlremacy nonsense…but no, he’s not even close. My uncle served in Korea as a brand new draftee and he’s in his 80s.


    • Hondo says:

      Mike K: it’s theoretically possible for someone who’s as young as 79 today to have served in the Korean War – enlisted at 17 in early 1953, turned 18 shortly after, and was shipped over prior to the armistice in July 1953. (Not sure if 78 is possible or not – I think we’d stopped sending 17-year-olds to combat by then, but I’m not sure.)

      However, I agree with you that this tool is very likely lying about serving in the Korean War. He doesn’t look nearly 80 to me either – I’d guess late 60s. Plus, he obviously didn’t serve under the name/SSN combo Scotty used for the FOIA – so he’s almost certainly lying as well about being a Vietnam POW.

      Addendum: well, that’s what I get for not “pulling the thread” completely – I should have looked at the pics at Scotty’s site too. The one Jonn posted is the best looking photo of this guy, and may be an older pic. He does indeed look to be in his 80s in some of the other photos Scotty posted.

  8. Marine_7002 says:

    Valor thieves are scumbags.

    Valor thieves who claim POW status, the Purple Heart, or the Medal of Honor are scumbags of the worst kind.

    Fuck him and his POW claim.

    • Hayabusa says:

      What about Nazi valor thieves who claim POW status, Silver Star, and Purple Heart?

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Meh, next thing you know he’ll be claiming an Iron Cross!

        • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

          API – the pic of “him” in a German uniform show him with the Iron Cross First and Second Class… and it’s a Luftwaffe uniform, not a German Army uniform.

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            I admit I barely know shit from tar about German WWII Military Awards, the Iron Cross remark was a shot in the dark at being smartassed. But his claim of being Hitler Youth, wearing a Luftwaffe uniform with the Iron Crosses, what’s next will he claim to have been part of the Waffen SS or US Army Ranger?
            Das ist ein big walking bucket of DAS BULLSHIT!!

          • Skippy says:

            HMCS(FMF)ret.. I really don’t think this pic is of him. I’ve seen this pic before in a book. I’m working on the details. I’m a WW2 history Nut. And I’ll say this much this dumb ass ain’t.. He’s just crazy, and he’s stupid, I hope he’s not collecting anything for the VA LMO ! ! ! , but I won’t be surprised if he is

            • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

              Skippy – have you looked at the pics on Scotty’s site? There is one of a child in Hitler Youth gear and another one of someone that looks familiar in a SS officers uniform (there appears to be a “Death’s Head” on the cap).

              • CLAW131 says:

                Is that Marlon Brando who played Lt Christian Diestl in the 1958 flick “The Young Lions)?

                Could be mistaken though, not much on facial recognition of Nazi SS officers.

              • Skippy says:

                HMCS…Good info Thank you

              • Skippy says:

                HMCS(FMF)ret. At first I couldn’t figure it out I though a book by B.H. Liddell Hart, I’m wrong the photo is a oldie the 3 on the shoulder is around 1940-45 I do believe it’s German Air Force Div #. Their was a exhibit in Berlin about children of the homeland and the holocaust. Holy crap ! ! ! he’s as bad as this dipshit that stole some photos from my Facebook claiming a bunch of crap Lol

            • Retired Soulja says:

              I’ve spoken with him before and he has claimed that he was being treated by the VA. Not sure if it was just talk or if he may be receiving certain VA benefits.

        • Skippy says:

          Dear God Please don’t give him anymore Ideas he’s already to full of Shit LMAO ! ! !

  9. 19D2OR4 - Smitty says:

    He is also wearing the gold officer cord on his Stetson instead of the enlisted yellow cord which he would be wearing if he was ever actually enlisted, or Cav.

    • 19D2OR4 - Smitty says:

      Also, unit insignia (DUI) go on the back of the Stetson and always have. Rank and the Sabers are the only thing that go on the front.

    • USMCE8Ret says:

      Yeah, I noticed that and I have no Army background.

      One would think that a MSGT with 30 years in uniform would know how to properly display medals and wear the uniform.

      • CLAW131 says:

        Or at the very minimum know how to spell Sergeant.

        But maybe “Sargent” is the German derivation.

        • Kristoffer says:

          “Feldwebel” is German for sergeant. I doubt it’s a derivation.

          • rgr1480 says:

            “Feldwebel” is German for sergeant.

            Correct … but more correctly, Feldwebel maps to our Staff Sergeant.

        • rgr1480 says:

          But maybe “Sargent” is the German derivation.

          Nah! Depending on branch, an infantry buck sergeant would be unteroffizier, oberjäger, or ϟϟ-Unterscharführer.

          • rgr1480 says:

            …. then shortly thereafter, advanced to Unterfeldwebel. After leading a squad for four months, he could be promoted to Feldwebel.

  10. Climb to Glory says:

    Looks like a tickle monster. Fucking shitbag. For me, the worst kind of phony is the phony POW turds. When you think of the hell that real POWs went, it really pisses me off. If theses shitbags want to be POWs so bad I say we arrange it.

  11. Bobo says:

    I see that he also has the much coveted but rarely awarded 2 star CIB. Despite that, he seems confused between the CAB and the CIB given his CIB comments posted with a picture of a CAB.

    Extra points for the Hitler Youth claims, though. I’m sure that the German government has some form of record keeping for that stuff, you know, being super anal Germans and all.

    • Stacy0311 says:

      His Hitler Youth records were destroyed in the Dresden fire bombimg.
      got maintain consistency…….

      • Climb to Glory says:

        That’s it. You win the internet today. And what kind of idiot shitheel would claim to be a Nazi.

    • DooshBag says:

      I mean I can see someone at that age confusing a CIB and CAB since the latter came out in 2005.

  12. CC Senor says:

    I’ve been retired for awhile now and haven’t been paying attention to things like the CAB. Today was the first time I really looked at one and at first glance it looked like a double barreled P38. But then the first time I looked at the 702nd Maint Bn DUI I thought the motto was “Me And The Broken Sword” instead of “Mend The Broken Sword”. Pissed off the 702nd guy when I told him that seemed like a stupid motto. Life goes on.

  13. CLAW131 says:

    So many things wrong with this, but the best is the “Diwe Nim” story and the picture of the German 88 with his caption of “I served on one of these in December 1945.”
    So I guess the ETO was still in full conflict mode eight months after Germany’s surrender.

    “Diwe Nim?” – Way too much time spent watching “The Green Berets” and “We Were Soldiers”
    I’m surprised he didn’t tell us that he was SGM Plumley’s squad leader in both Korea and Vietnam.

    But, Hey, give him a break. He got his first CIB and the mustard stain on his jump wings from his tour with Custer. Yep, he and Brian Williams were dual survivors of Little Big Horn.

    The sad thing is, in his mind, he probably believes all this to be true.

    • Perry Gaskill says:

      Or not. My own theory is he puts on the stetson and saddles up the rascal scooter so he can pick up chicks at WalMart.

    • Eric Skinner says:

      This old bag of bones needs to come from his la la land park his little Communist Scooter in another Country, How dare you Mix in a Swastika with our Beloved Awards and Decorations, Old bastard or not you should be ashamed. You can find sympathy between Shit and Syphilis in the dictionary..I have no respect or Sympathy for your fake ass…..I say I let a few real Silver Star winner run wild on your Phony ass…

  14. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    In that pic of him in a uniform riding a wheelchair or scooter just how many damned overseas stripes is he wearing? Did he just buy the whole damned strip of them from his local Army Slurpus Store? Pus-nutted old bullshit-o-matic!!

    • CLAW131 says:

      API, I count 15 Overseas Bars (7 1/2 years total) and 9 Service stripes (27 years) on the sleeves.

      I guess he just couldn’t afford that last hashmark to make the full 30 years.

      Yep, way too much 7th ID and 1st Cav stuff on this guy. He must think he’s the clone of Hal Moore and Basil Plumley rolled onto one.

      And what? No blue cord? Slacker!!

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        I also counted 27 years of Service Stripes, I was too lazy to try to count his Overseas Stripes. I see him as a fine example of NDS/MSU (Never Did Shit/Make Stuff Up)! I guess he’s too ashamed to admit that “He just shoveled shit in…”, so now he goes about making it up and throwing it!

      • CLAW131 says:

        But he needs a lot more service stripes than just 10.

        His Facebook says he’s been working at the U.S.Army as a Sergeant since July 4, 1933 to present. Been in a loooooooong time. 82 years by my count.

        So he would need 27 hashmarks to reflect his his true length of service. Looks like another trip to the Army/Navy Surplus Store is warranted.

        • Hack Stone says:

          The only reason he stayed in 88 years is so that he can score a reserved parking spot at the commissary.

  15. Just an Old Dog says:

    Be funny if a reaslly spry old Korean Vet snatched his ass off that scooter, stripped him naked and chased him down the street onm his own scooter.

  16. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    The more flash, the less dash. I saw a motorcycle rider recently who had all kinds of shit, including “Combat Veteran” in big block letters across the back of his faux leather jacket. I turned my head in disgust. Right or wrong, whenever I see the look-at-me ads, I murmur, “Bullshit.” Herr Rodney here is one of those.

    • Pinto Nag says:

      Had one pull up beside me in traffic yesterday. Patches from top to bottom. Thought the same thing I always do anymore: “Well, there’s another one.” Maybe not fair, but that’s the way I feel after having read this blog for four years. Anybody begging that hard for attention has got to be faking something.

  17. RM3(SS) says:

    If you look at his facebook page, far down it he claims he has a picture of Hitler giving him a medal for “blowing up 11 T-34 tanks”. I don’t see that medal in his shadowbox!

  18. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    So, four-star Fedgers here claims not only to be “Rice Paddy Daddy” and a POW, but when he was a yoot, he was a member of the Hitler Yoots! EPIC!!!

    Got to love the Nazi flags on the wall below his “shadowbox”… and the pic of “him” with the Iron Cross First and Second Class (guess you’re not too proud about getting those, are you?).

    You’ve been called out, old man… take your pics down, go over to some skinhead site and bullshit them with your stories of “serving” for Uncle Adolf in the bunker during the last days of the war, then go warm yourself up a hot bowl of your favorite VC/phony POW delicacy, Cream of Sum Yung Guy soup…

    Farking purple suited assclown…

    • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

      Oh one other thing… his “German” soldier pic of him in the “Artillery”… it’s a guy in a Luftwaffe uniform (the tabs on the collar stand out like a sore thumb).

      Someone a member of the 1St Cavalry Division Association? Maybe they need to drop them a line and find out what this assclown’s status is with them and let them know what’s up with him…

      • Hondo says:

        HMCS(FMF): I seem to remember reading that a load of Luftwaffe troops got “repurposed” into ground combat in Italy late in World War II (and presumably elsewhere also). Also, if memory serves the German ADA units fell under the Luftwaffe; the German 88mm was originally an AA gun, and was only later adopted as a tank gun and artillery piece.

        If this was some old German dude claiming to be talking about his World War II service, I might be inclined to believe that the pic and artillery claim is legit. In this tool’s case, however . . . .

        • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

          Hondo… I remember reading about how the Desert Fox thought that the 88’s he had for AAA would probably be a good AT weapon in the desert… and he was right.

          The Germans were real big advocates of AAA and loved to put anything AAA related on tracks or wheels and put them around airfields or other high value targets.

          In my spare time I still build plastic models – one I found and am working on is a Ausf.D Flak Bergapanther

          It has a 3.7cm Flak gun on it… nasty surprise for a fighter or light bomber making a run on an airfield

        • Martinjmpr says:

          Trying to understand the TO&E of the German military forces in WWII is a difficult task because of the weird way they were set up. The Luftwaffe, for example, included not only the “air force” as we would think of it but also the paratroopers and ADA. And if that doesn’t make your head spin, what about the Herman Goering Division, a Luftwaffe (?) Armored division.

          Then there’s the SS which wasn’t even part of the “military forces” and in some cases didn’t fall under military command but which often fought side-by-side with the Army.

          The tortured command structure of the Germans in WWII is probably worthy of doctorate-level study, and I’m guessing that somewhere in West Point or the Pentagon, such a study exists.

          • Hondo says:

            Yep. Makes just as much sense as having ground forces as a part of the Department of the Navy, doesn’t it? (smile)

          • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

            Same with German Naval air assets – they fell under Goering and the Luftwaffe (much like Britain’s Fleet Air Arm fell under the RFC/RAF between the wars).

            It was all about how much of the “pie” you controlled and your place in the Party…

  19. Bobo says:

    …then go warm yourself up a hot bowl of your favorite VC/phony POW delicacy, Cream of Sum Yung Guy soup

    In this case it would be pho viet vet.

      I could see this guy serving as a “recreational dude” and digging it.

        • Green Thumb says:


          Too old.

          Phildo would not bring him on board due to the insurance risks and potential retirement or workers comp issues.

          Phildo likes to pocket all of that himself.

    This guy is just what I needed to start my day over my first cup of coffee! Claiming POW, CIB, and then to top it off, the black Stetson! My black Stetson!

    Where’s Sparks, when I need him!

    • Green Thumb says:


      That hat looks photo-shopped.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Has he claimed to be a Gold Or Silver Spur Holder yet? I share your feelings about the Stetson, but at least he hasn’t desecrated the Spurs yet! For the uninitiated, a Cav trooper earns his Gold Spurs by successfully deploying to a Combat Zone with his unit. His Silver Spurs are earned by successfully completing a “Spur Ride” during which troopers are worked like hell, “smoked”, and tested. One has to complete the Spur Ride with zero “No-Go’s” and finish the ruck march in time to earn his Silver Spurs. I have both Gold and Silver, and my certificates have a place oh honor on my “I love me wall” in Infidel Central®™.

  21. 3E9 says:

    Man, first dipshit I’ve seen with a Hitler Youth claim. I guess I haven’t seen it all.

  22. 3/17 Air Cav says:

    And another thing, dumbass, the cord on your Stetson should be yellow given that NCO rank your claiming!

    What a old fool!

  23. Scotty says:

    Official California Birth Records indicate that a Rodney Daniel Pratt was born in Inyo County, CA on September 3, 1933.
    His Father was Perry Hart Pratt, born January 30, 1897 who passed away on July 3, 1983.
    According to his Headstone, Perry served in the US Navy during WWI.
    His mother was Cecilia A. Carrasco (Last Name) Pratt, born August 19, 1904 who passed away on February 18, 1976.
    His Sister was Maria Alina Pratt, born January 8, 1939 in Inyo County, CA.
    His Brother was Richard Frank Pratt, born November 2, 1931 who passed away on June 12, 1998.
    According to Richard’s Headstone, Richard was a Marine.
    His brother was Thomas R. Pratt, born around 1927 who was drafted in the US Army as a Private on February 2, 1946 (Army Serial Number 39763384).
    Rodney Dan Pratt married Patricia Louise Cogburn in Carson City, Neveda on 28 June 1980.
    He previously married Darlene Stacey in ; they both were divorced in King, California on May 1966 AND 25 August 1978.

    Looks as if he came from a military family. His father served in the Navy in WWI, his brother served in the Army after WWII (and possibly Korea?) while the other brother served in the Marines, time unknown . BUT, he is not of German Birth.

      Geez, divorced in California May 66 and then taken prisoner in RVN on 6 Jun 66.

      Rough couple of months for the old LSOS.

      • 3/17 Air Cav says:

        Claw…….it’s a small world. He gets captured June 6th 1966. I graduate from high school the same day. It’s all coming back to me now. I remember reading about him at my graduation party!


        • Hack Stone says:

          June 6th? Easy date to remember. Back in the day, I was reading about one of the many fake POWs that Mary had a case file on, and one particular older African American gentleman was being interviewed by a young African American man. The older guy said that he arrived in Vietnam on November 11 (veteran’s Day), his helicopter was shot down and he was captured on December 7 (Pearl Harbor Attack), and 15 months later was rescued or escaped on March 17 (St Patrick’s Day). I wonder if he wore green the day that he escaped. The upside of that particular stolen valor case is that I followed a link from that entry to some site called This Ain’t Hell. And my life has never been the same, since. I’ve never had someone put a contract out on my life until I started posting here. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

          • CLAW131 says:

            The 6th of June is a pretty significant day in history as it turns out.

            This old LSOS was captured and taken to a POW camp in Cambodia by a time traveling helmsman from the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701), 3/17 graduated from high school and had one hell of a party, and Forrest Gump was born(1944) in Greenbow County, Alabama.

            Didn’t something else happen on 6 June 1944 that was in all the newspapers?

            • CLAW131 says:

              Oh, yeah, now I remember what else happened on 6 Jun 44.

              Peter Albin, the bass player for Big Brother and the Holding Company (Janis Joplin was their lead singer for a while) was born in SF.

              BTW, the band is still on tour, albeit somewhat slower now as they have to hump the access ramps for their rascal scooters from gig to gig.

            • Hack Stone says:

              I think that June 6 is the day I graduated high school. I’ll need to double check that wallet sized high school diploma to make sure. Anyone else here have one of those in their box of old shit, like the military driver’s license, Liberty card and the card with the 1st Sgt’s home phone number?

              • 3/17 Air Cav says:

        Maybe he’ll say he rode into Mexico with Pershing to help hunt down Pancho Villa?

  25. Bobo says:

    Any idea why he’s wearing a 7th ID combat patch on his Class A uniform?

    • CLAW131 says:

      Yes, Sir, he is a Hal Moore wannabe.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        More a Plumley than a Moore. You probably know about Plumley, his four combat jumps, his one on Korea, his mega fruit salad and so on. But, to me, the most incredible thing about him was that when he was married for 63 years to the same woman!

        • CLAW131 says:

          Yea, he is merging both Plumley and Moore’s real life service into the web of lies of his “30 years of service.”

          In Korea, Plumley served in the 187th ARCT and Moore in the 7th ID.

    This old fukker will take his b.s. to the grave with him. At least the rest of the world will know the truth about this bag of old dust’n bones.

  27. Smaj says:

    A dismal, pathetic shitbird, with delusions of serving the criminal killing machine known as the Third Reich. Can’t wait to see his rap sheet.

    I haven’t seen that many hash-marks since Sgt Hulka what a old dried out turd.

    Started out in the Hitler Youth! Ooohhh, that’s a new one!

    • JohnE says:

      I don’t understand most of these fucking guys…some are most assuredly mentally ill, others ashamed that they never served, still others lazy and stupid. But whatever their reasoning, this clown really takes the cake. Or shall I say kuchen…why in hell would you want to claim being a member of the Hitler Jugend? Should turn him in to Simon Weisenthall…

        Oh, they would have fun with his ass… they’re pros when it comes to going after Nazi’s in hiding.

    His “I Love Me” wall ….

    Photos from left to right:
    1. A member of the Deutches Jungvolk — kinda like out cub scouts, ages 10-14). We can tell because of the (ϟ) patch on his left sleeve. Too bad we cannot read the unit that is designated in a triangle just above the (ϟ) patch.

    2. Waffen-ϟϟ ϟϟ-Obersturmführer (1st Lieut). A holder of the Knights Cross to the Iron Cross with Oakleaves; as this is an Order (as in knighthoods), one must first have earned the lower grades of the Iron Cross — but not necessarialy the German Cross in Gold). On some occasions an action might be so outstanding, that all three classes could be awarded on the same day. That might be a Close Combat Clasp above his left breast pocket.

    3. Luftwaffe Unteroffizier (2nd Lieut). A holder of the Knights Cross to the Iron Cross. We can clearly see the ribbon designating award of the Iron Cross 2nd Class in his second button hole, and what looks like the top edge of the Iron Cross 1st Class on his left breast.

    Hitlerjugend frame:
    1. Typical armband for the HJ.
    2. Unidentified badge.
    3. Looks like the Wound Badge in Black. (?)
    4. Iron Cross 1st Class.
    5. Für Leistung in der Hitlerjugend [For Proficiency in the Hitler Youth]. A proficiency badge for HJ members aged 15-18.
    [blockquote]”Every foreward-looking Hitler Youth and Youth Leader must seek this high award from the Reich Youth Leader….Anyone wishing to acquire the Hitler Youth Proficiency Badge, had participated with particular sympathy for the ideological training of the Hitler Youth at least eight Heimabends [home evenings dedicated to listening to radio propaganda especially written for youth]….”[/blockquote]

    6. Für Leistungen im D.J. A proficiency badge for members of the Deutschen Jungvolk, aged 10-14.

    7. Hitlerjugend camp knife.

    8. HJ “wimple” [pennant].

      Any word on his certificates for The Clean Plate Club and Crest Cavity Fighting Team members card?

      • RM3(SS) says:

        Not to mention the battery of the month club! Wonder if he’s got a sport pilots license too…

        • Hack Stone says:

          So what is Bernasty going to do with his free time now that Radio Shack has gone the way of Circuit City? I guess that he can devote more time to cleaning the coils of his refrigerator.

          And a heads up to all AF Hack’s FaceBook Friends, be sure to check out his page Friday afternoon. He expects to be posting yet more amusing material. Hack will never top that Downfall parody posted last week on the open thread, so a shout out to the person that put that together. That video is 10X better than the lyrics to Trannie In A Jag AND the Ballsack job hunting tips.

    An old rancid neo-nazi piece of poser shit…

  32. UpNorth says:

    He doesn’t need a purple jumpsuit, he really needs a throat punch,

  33. sj says:

    I got nothing. Shameless bump. Phony Marine was sucking all the O2 out of “recent comments”. I don’t my fellow Nam guy to fade away.

  34. Jon Pratt says:

    I’m surprised that this Pratt, as well as the other one, haven’t tried claiming “They named Pratt Street on Fort Bragg after me.” … fucking tools. As a recently separated veteran, it makes me sick to share their last name
