Scotty sends us his work on this fellow, Roger A. Cobb, aka CJ Cobb who claims to be a Marine and a combat veteran of the Iraq War;


His wife tells a better tale, though;

Roger Cobb claims

I wonder where she got that story from;

    Seems like this husband and wife were made for one another.

    • Grimmy says:

      Don’t be dissing the wife!

      She’s doing what she’s meant to do. Obeying and honoring her husband.

      You hear that ladies? You must obey and honor your husband, even when he’s a total idiot.

      That’s in the rules.

    • SFC D says:

      I’m wondering if that wife actually exists.

  2. Steadfast&Loyal says:

    If he was selected for ST6 that public announcement just canceled it.

  3. rb325th says:

    I have seen this guy before somewhere…

  4. ChipNASA says:

    More like Corn Cob.

  5. Dave Hardin says:

    Ahhhhh….the all too elusive MARMOOSEAL in its natural habitat. I talked to Jethro Bodine and he says they were actually on Team 00 (double knot) just outside of Langley at Camp Clusterfuck.

  6. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    What-da… I couldn’t make crap like that up if I tried to! No, wait, yeah I could, but only when I’m trying to be a smartass. What’s next, a USMC Ranger or PJ? I bet he couldn’t tell the difference between a rifle round and the last booger he ate five minutes ago!

  7. Instinct says:

    What the hell! It clearly states in the poser’s handbook Chapter 4, section 2 – if you are going to pass yourself off as a Navy SEAL, you have to be a Navy Poser – not Marine, Army, Coast Guard or that wanna be service, the Air Force!

    • FasterThanFastjack says:

      We’ll remember that the next time you need suppressive fire from the only thing that makes the goatfuckers speak English long enough to say “Oh shit”– oh no wait, leadership is fucking us out of that too. We really ARE a wannabe service.

  8. ChipNASA says:

    Who wants to be that all those times he was deployed that he was banging come other chick (or guy, Mr. Downlow). No WONDER he’s smiling. 😀
    He has these bitches totally fooled.
    Not us though. 🙄

    • ChipNASA says:

      “bet” and “some”. sheesh,


    • Steadfast&Loyal says:

      I am wondering now if his wife really thinks he is in the SEALS…and then when he deploys where is he actually going/doing?

      Wild Ass unresponsible speculation tells me he has another wife?

      • Animal says:

        Just for entertainment I’d like to here what he was doing in Iraq from 2000 to 2003 before OIF started.

      • Kat says:

        And she just had a baby, I wonder what happened when she goes to the hospital and says “Tricare will cover it”, thinks she should enroll that child in DEERS or tries to get on base? I am sure the other Team wives threw her a big shower too.. Oh boy!

        • Skippy says:

          Kat. There was a Facebook only post yesterday on the TAH Page, about a turd in Texas that was busted and I guess he had a real military ID, that he was able to get using Fake Paperwork. I shared this info with a buddy on base where I live. And he said this was the first they had seen or head about this kind of stuff. And then said about every week or so they confiscate at least one fake ID. The turds are upping there game. This to me isn’t all that funny anymore, not that it was in the first place

          • Kat says:

            Sad, but how does he explain his LACK off absences to her and then show a doctored CAC? Or she doesn’t know enough about being a military spouse, like where is my ID card so I can get on base to shop. They don’t use stickers anymore here so getting on base would still require a card. Maybe I am overthinking this, maybe his lies are enough.

            • Skippy says:

              Yeh sad or she is blind as all hell.. At first I thought people pretending was some sort of mental health issue. Not anymore in the last 2 years I’ve seen and read here and other places and seen on the news, the antics these nuts are pulling, and it seems to maybe getting a little out of control. them you have these Turds claiming all kinds of issues. Getting all of this Poggie Bait. And empathy.and the funny this is they were never in or they are 3 week washout Amazing

              • Kat says:

                20 years ago I ran into a guy that said he was a SEAL, cried as he spoke of lost buddies in Africa and how Hilary Clinton calls him up. I called BS then and now all these years later, still more phonies. Some of these guys, and now gals are so off I can’t believe ONE person believes their tales much less years of followers. If you lay down and have 2 kids with a liar you have so much invested in him, all the “honor” and “pride” you have as the wife of a hero. How can you admit to yourself and others you are an IDIOT? No way can someone be active duty and never gone, no training, no call outs/deployments nothing? MAYBE HE WAS IN JAIL FOR ALL THAT TIME? I don’t know but he wasn’t at Notre Dame at all, that I have from the source. All around just a sad day for his 2 kids as they find out Daddy is a liar some day.

                • Green Thumb says:

                  I agree with you about the kids.

                  It is not their fault.

                  I feel sorry for them and what they will have to go through one day when they (and their classmates) learn that their father is a shitbag.

            • Green Thumb says:

              This dude can just pull a Creekmur and drive off w/ the windows rolled up.

  9. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Dude looks like one of them two hole, taint licking warriors… like Damon here (NSFW or if you happen to have “virgin” ears):


  10. Combat Historian says:

    I’ve always wanted to be the ultimate badass quad-service rangerspecialforcereconsniperpararescueseal too…

    • Former 3364 says:

      You forgot SWO. According to SWOs I’ve met, SWO trumps all.

      It’s funny that none of these posers ever claim to have dolphins.

      • Silentium Est Aureum says:

        On my first boat, the junior YN (nonqual) tried to tell some tourist in Waikiki he was an RO.

        He didn’t like me very much when I found out about that. Something about 0200 short forms and 0300 startups he didn’t care for, I guess.

        And in all the time I’ve been around here, I’ve seen exactly ONE submariner poseur, and zero nukes.

        • Bobo says:

          The only time that anyone wants to be a Nuc is at re-enlistment bonus time.

          • Silentium Est Aureum says:

            The only time nukes want to be nukes is at reenlistment.

            Assuming that they didn’t bother to put out any resumes or network. Those of us who did saw the kind of money that was dangling in front of us and said to the Navy, “Have a nice life.”

        • Former 3364 says:

          I’m really surprised there aren’t more nuke poseurs. Everyone knows that chicks dig pre-crits and water chemistry.

          • Nucsnipe says:

            I know! The ladies would always swoon when I brought steam into the RAR and placed the RCPs on the CTG

          • Silentium Est Aureum says:

            Nothing makes civilian chicks swoon when you tell them, “So there I was, steaming out of Pearl, critical, and I looked at the EOOW dead in the eye and said, SHIMMING OUT FOR JESUS!”

  11. nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

    ST-3 and ST-6.

    Yep – Time to unleash “THE HAIR”.

    • Dave Hardin says:

      Shipley is turning haze grey. I thought it was just age but then I realized it is cover and concealment when he is on his boat.

  12. Martinjmpr says:

    It’s a little known fact that the SEAL OPTEMPO has been so high that they’ve had to expand their recruiting beyond the Navy. They now recruit from the Marines, the Army, the Air Force, the Civil Air Patrol, the Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Department, Mall Cops, Buck Fermley’s Trailer Park Militia and of course the elite 41st Airsoft Battalion.

    • JohnE says:

      Buck Fermleys Trailer Park Militai! Awesome sauce…snorting coffee out the nose hurts…thanks!

  13. Martinjmpr says:

    Also what’s the picture on his profile? Let me guess: He’s also claiming to be the reincarnated spirit of Jimi Hendrix?

    • JacktheJarhead says:

      You are confusing him with Canadian Rocker Frank Marino! Although this guy looks like he might have swallowed Frank Marino.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        Weren’t Marino and Hendrix contemporaries though? FWIW I’ve heard Robin Trower called “The Poor Man’s Jimi Hendrix.” 😀

  14. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Before his USMC assignment as a SEAL he was a USCG PJ … and a USN Green Beret. I suspect he will round out his career as a USAF Force Recon.

  15. radar says:

    Hahaha….love the two NAMs instead of one NAM with a star. Only real hard-chargers rate the double NAM!

  16. Green Thumb says:

    The clown will always be in Commander Phil Monkress of All-Points Logistics’ shadow.

  17. Peter the Bubblehead says:

    PLEASE tell me that isn’t a set of Submarine Dolphins on display above the ribbon rack, and possibly on the right-hand belt buckle too! Hard to tell, since I can’t zoom in on the pic.

  18. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I’m sure his secret code name is Ben Dover.

  19. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    A USMC SEAL? Like I was a USAF Submarine Door Gunner!

  20. JohnE says:

    Wonder what Notre Dame would have to say about him? Who wants to bet they have no record on file of him?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I’d bet a bottle of good Scotch they’d say “Who?”.

    • Martinjmpr says:

      He could be a hunchback, though.

    • Kat says:

      Absolutely true my kind sir, they have no record of him at all, under any of his aliases. They are interested for any other mentions of this as he has removed in from his Twitter account since it was originally posted. Maybe he has an inkling it is hitting the fan and is attempting to clean house.

  21. NavyCWORet says:

    The ribbon rack in the display case is decidedly Navy vice USMC. Enlisted Surface Warfare breast insignia and belt buckle; ship’s belt buckle (looks like carrier); the awards include a Battle E (USMC not eligible).

    I’d suggest doing a FOIA with the Navy to see if he is a USMC wannabe but was actually Navy previously.

    • teddy996 says:

      You mean to tell me that ORSE and DCTT inspectors don’t go around to marine shore commands to test their shipboard combat proficiencies?

      Here I was thinking that the only reason I’ve never seen the ‘E’ painted on a marine barracks is because fleet was just shit-hot.

      Although I have to say as a nuc, the battle E ribbon was pretty much the only thing on my uniform that actually mattered. It’s good to see a poser bragging up the Battle E award. If more posers pile on and bring a media spotlight to it, maybe someday I can pin mine on and pick up the chix.

      • Former 3364 says:

        I also have a Battle E but my dolphins are most important to me.

        • teddy996 says:

          That’s because dolphins actually mean something, guy. I earned my ESWS pin in a board alongside an idiot HM3 who didn’t know how many hangar bays or aircraft elevators the GW had. But he still got his pin, same as me.

        • Silentium Est Aureum says:

          Ditto. Which is why I’m glad there are so few submariner poseurs. I’d get in a lot of trouble if there were more of them.

    • Dave says:

      Marines who are ship’s company rate the Navy ‘E’ when the ship they are assigned to earns it. Examples are the Marine Security Detachment. But that’s not what this guy is claiming.

      • NavyCWORet says:

        Dave, pretty sure the Marine Security Detachments ended back in the 1990’s. All Marines now are embarked. Since he graduated in 1998, it’s a slim-to-none chance he was assigned aboard ship. There is, however, a move afoot to reassign Marines back to ships, but no traction on that yet.

        He certainly wouldn’t be able to earn the ESWS as a Marine.

        • Airdale USN says:

          When I was on the USS Nassau, we had embarked Marines in AIMD, it was funny but they would start a line any where.

  22. Patrick408 says:

    All makes sense to me…
    Ive heard if you were a Marine that went into the Navy SEALs, they automatically close your records to the public, plus he has a SEAL T-Shirt..
    Good enough for me…haha
    Plus its good to see another dark green frog man!

  23. Kat says:

    Not like I thought it was true but Notre Dame never heard of him either.

  24. Green Thumb says:

    I hope this turd’s kids are young enough that they do not have to deal with the reality that their father is a loser.

    • Kat says:

      I think the boy is around 5 or so and a newborn, but mom is 33 not a kid and should know better. It is up to her to better serve her kids by vetting the father, not believe a goofy smile and a 12 dollar T-Shirt.

  25. Big Steve says:

    Wonder if this knuckle-dragger even knows that folks of his “demographic” are as rare as hen’s teeth in the SEALs.

    Roger is a dipshit of epic proportions.

    • Kat says:

      That is true, he is a rarity among the rare.

      Apparently the rate is 50 out of 2,500 according to this article, and then add being an officer and then a CDR. Plus a team leader on top of it, just too much to believe.

      • Kat says:

        Another report say that Black officers are less than 2% of the teams, so he is more rare than we thought originally.

      • Big Steve says:

        I found a stat of 31 out of 2300 total SEALs, for a whopping 1.35%.
        When you find a black dude claiming to be (or having been) a SEAL, be beyond skeptical. I remember seeing this one fat, 25-30 y/o bro on the net claiming he’d been a SEAL.

        • Kat says:

          Yes, the younger and the fatter they are that always adds credence to their story. And about SEALs of color, the number is low, always a small number but then add a CDR. The chances of it being so is just phenomenal. I hope this story is developed more, I’d like to see the family explain why they thought he was telling the truth.

  26. Big Steve says:

    Roger Cobb. Rhymes with “Knob.”
    Coincidence? I think not.

  27. 1351-2 says:

    I see that he has III MEF Marine Corps Birthday setup. Not as prestigious without the GySgt Ermey signature !

  28. Angela Perez says:

    Unfortunately this is an ex of mine & sperm donor to my 7 yr old. His name is Roger Allen Cobb Jr. Birthday: March 30, 1976. Met him in San Diego. He’s been doing this for a long time, I thought I was the only idiot that he did this to. He lied to me about everything from his name to family. Claiming to be a Marine is the first I’ve heard. He told me he was a Seal Commander, he even would dress the part till my Navy friends noticed the last name on the back of the uniform did not match his last name. I managed to get a pic of his Navy I.D and showed it to my friends & they laughed & said he was an E3 and worked in paperwork, typing up orders & Stuff (sorry I don’t know the correct job name) He was very abusive. Unfortunately I agreed to move to Groton, CT with him when I confronted him with all the lies, he beat me up knowing I was pregnant (you can go to to so the court dropped it down to Assault 3rd Degree A Misdemeanor & he got 2 yrs probation. When his chief came to talk to me I found out that he told his chief that the reason he beat me up was because on our way to CT we stopped in Cincinnati & his daughter was struck by a car & was killed. The only problem with this story was he didn’t have a daughter, of course another one of his B.S. lies. I was upset with the chief because he tried to sweep the assault under the rug & get me out of CT asap even though I told this chief about all his lies & that he is impersonating a officer. His chief chose to believe him & I found out a year & a half later he was kicked out of the Navy (not sure why?) He was born & grew up in Cincinnati, OH. I think he might be in Boston Massachusetts or close to Boston. I can go on and on with stories about this loser, it’s scary to know he is loose out there & who knows what he is capable of? If this guy can be prosecuted for impersonating an officer & anyone needs info on him, I have his Social Security #, California D.L., Selective Service # & plenty of witnesses. I am pretty sure he is living a double life or living off his girlfriend because Child Support has been looking for him since 2008 & the case workers said “it’s like he fell off the face of the earth” & they can’t find any info about his whereabouts. The reason I said he might be in Massachusetts is because if you search his name a baby Registry comes up in Revere, MA. One more thing, he has a shoe box full of coins, & different award pins, not sure where he got all of them but he has them. If anymore info needed please let me know.
