Jason Muldoon; Phony SF Major, wounded vet

| May 23, 2015

Jason Muldoon (6)

The folks at Military Phonies send us their work on this doofus, Jason Muldoon who parades around Myrtle Beach with a military ID card that says he’s a Major in the Army. He tell you all about his experiences in Panama, Desert Storm, Kosovo, Somalia – his Purple Heart. Of course, he’s also Special Forces, blah, blah, blah. Here’s the story he told his local news folks over ten years ago (they’ve since pulled the story, but here it is at Free Republic);

(West Haven-WTNH, Nov. 17, 2004 11:00 PM) _ The military is investigating this past weekend’s shooting inside a Fallujah mosque in which a Marine shot an injured insurgent.

A local veteran who fought in the Gulf War says shooting an already wounded enemy is not that uncommon.

In fact in some cases he says it’s all part of the training.

According this West Haven veteran there’s even a name for shooting a wounded person. It’s called “double tapping” and it’s done just in case the person has a gun or the body is boobie trapped.

“I’ve seen my friends blown up right in front of my face. I’ve done some pretty horrific things and your conscience just comes back,” says Major Jason Muldoon, US Army Retired.

This is Major Jason Muldoon. The Army special forces veteran fought in Panama, the first Gulf War, Somalia and Afghanistan.

In Afghanistan a rocket propelled grenade took out the Black Hawk helicopter he was in, leaving schrapnel in his leg.

Three years later he’s still using a wheel chair.

He won the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart but doesn’t want to be called a hero.

“I don’t view myself as a hero. I hate the word hero.”

He agreed to talk to us because of this video of a Marine shooting an apparently unarmed injured man in a Fallujah mosque.

“It kind of aggravates me. You’re going to get the whole country upset about an incident when nobody really knows what happened until the unit can do their own investigation.”

Major Muldoon says despite what the video looks like and sounds like the Marine was likely scared for his life, relying on his training.

“We were taught kill, kill, kill, kill and you know they really didn’t spend too much time on Geneva Convention.”

Muldoon says yes the Marine should have checked and treated the wounded but in a war zone a combatant’s first priority is not civilized behavior- it’s survival.

“Life has a flavor the protected will never know and its so true the protected will never know what it’s like to have to be over there and be in that kids situation.”

Major Muldoon says given what the Marine had been through he may have shot the man too.

He says it’s up to the officer in charge to stop those sweeping a room from shooting but there’s an inherent problem with that, the officer in charge isn’t normally inside until after the room is clean.

He pretty much just wants someone to kick his ass for this BS.

The truth is that he was a PFC and he deployed to Desert Storm, but he doesn’t have a CIB, even though he was an infantryman – you can assume what you want about an infantryman assigned to an infantry unit in an area where there is combat.

    Yeah….of course he was shot down…*eye roll*

    On the dating circuit perhaps.

  2. nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

    Muldoon, Maroon, Moron…

    See how that works?

    At least we finally learned what the definition of “double-tap” is. I’ve had it wrong all of these years.

  3. beretverde says:

    11B with the 327th at Campbell and no Bullwinkle badge? Probably boloed…

    Discharged as a PFC…couldn’t hang with the E-4 Mafia?

    And SF was recruiting (hiring) heavily then at Campbell, trying to get 3rd Group up and running.

    Loser Deluxe.

    • Big Steve says:

      I was thinking the same thing, unless his 214 has omissions, which happens. Did with me.
      But if he was in 2/327 and not AA qualified, he would have been an outcast at best, and just a total dud at worst.

    • Thunderstixx says:

      Hey, go easy on us old E-3’s from the 70’s.
      I got busted just before I pcs’d to Ft Lewis and then got hidden at Huck Creek.
      Weirdly enough, I was proud of it at the time!
      Oh well, I did get the full Honorable Discharge, unbelievably.
      I still thank God and my Guardian Angel for helping me to get that after all the crap I pulled!!!

      • Wild Bill says:

        TS, when were you up at Huck Creek? I lived in Greenwater from 85-90 and had a few parties at my place for you guys and the 3Para, had some good buddies from the camp, one that lived in my house by the river.

  4. Ex-344MP says:

    I can’t stand do dumb assist like this and I was never Infantry. I can only imagine how it makes you guys feel who were.

    I gotta say though, as interesting as the column are here, reading Bernaths rants is even more entertaining.

  5. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    So, the facebook post above is very interesting. No doubt investigators will get a copy of his filth.

  6. An Old Arty Sgt says:

    What does that idiot Bernath has to do with this bag of crap?? He should have his own special little corner. Now my eyes are sore from reading his trash..

    Guys, please keep the stories apart.

    • Skippy says:

      What a understatement

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I think that’s what you get when you ignore an idiot like Daniel A. Bernath. He’s so obsessed with being the center of everyone’s attention that he’ll explode his idiocy everywhere he can every time he’s ignored for a long enough period of time.

  7. Skippy says:

    What is a Army lapel button ??
    Odd I don’t remember those

    • Andy11M says:

      A rubber stamp thankyou “award” everyone who gets out of the Army has on their 214.

      • Skippy says:

        Crap I was medically Retierd in mid 2013 from my Bo-Bo overseas all I got was a flag and three certificates of thank you from Big Bird, Gen O, and sec of the army and a AAM, AND a 214. That say I was deployed for 7 years missing all of my schooling they said to refer to my other 214s for the schooling ! !

        • Skippy says:

          The deployed length of time being a Bo-Bo on there part. I’m still trying to get it fixed

    • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

      A modern version of the “Ruptured Duck” patch.

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    3 years and out as an E3, what stellar mediocrity!

    • Poetrooper says:

      Actually, Infidel, that’s only 2.5 years and I was wondering about that. Aren’t enlistments for three full years?

      Also, this turkey was in my old company. I served with it first as Echo Company, 1st Airborne Battle Group, 327th Infantry at Ft. Campbell in the early sixties then again after the 1964 regimental transition, in Vietnam in ’66, when it had become Bravo Company, 2d Battalion, 327th Airborne Infantry.

      As we all know, no matter how proud we are of having served with the most distinctive units, such organizations always contain a few bad apples, soldiers with the perfect psychological profiles to be Stolen Valor jerks later on.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        My first AD stint was in the Army from 91-94, and the enlistment options back then were 2 year, 3 year, and 4 year. If one chose a 2 year stint, they had an obligation to serve in a NG or reserve unit afterward as well, 2.5 years and exiting as an E3 says to me that he was either a bigtime dud or a dick-stepper that his unit wanted to get rid of ASAP.

        • Hondo says:

          The handwritten discharge on his record of assignments has the type of discharge redacted. But it doesn’t seem to be a long enough blacked-out space to spell out “Honorable”.

          It does, however, seem to be long enough to spell out “General”.

      • gwbarnes says:

        I commanded B/2/327 in Vietnam in 70-71.

    • Skippy says:

      A Proud Infidel. We had a few career E-4s in my first unit overseas

  9. Animal says:

    This guy is special. I was in the Al-Anbar province when Fallujah was happening. It was a place that anyone who wasn’t there had no business offering advice to an already naive American public. It’s one thing to lie about actual service, but to actually criticize and critique is a whole other level of depravity. How dare him.

    • Blaster says:

      I was thinking the same thing.

      It would nice if the Marine involved could have a one on one conversation with this turd to explain his actions to him in person.

  10. Yef says:

    What was that post about Jonn?
    Is it an attempt to shoot down TAH? Is that guy posting that a valor thief exposed here at TAH?

    • the Al says:

      He’s just upset that TAH outed him as a phony Chief Petty Officer. He’s had a hate-on for the site every since

  11. Skippy says:

    He has been posting all kinds of crazy stuff on here as long as I’ve been posting on here, he is sore about getting caught faking his record and and is very unstable

  12. CLAW131 says:

    At last the mystery is solved.
    People have been trying for almost 25 years to put a name to the face of who the hell that goofy assed dud was.
    As the story goes during DS/DS, a call was put out to the line companies for KP detail at the Battalion Field Mess and this extra duty shithead was sent up there from B Company.
    No one remembered his name, only that they called him “Remora”, because when he reported for duty he latched onto the First Cook’s ass so hard it took two spatulas and a can of Break-Free CLP to pry him loose.
    But no CIB for him as he became the permanent pots and pans man and was pulling that duty when the ground war occurred.
    So now we can all breathe easier as his name and face will now live forever on the interwebz.

    I guess a sarcasm disclaimer/not a true story entry is not really necessary, but I don’t want Spec8 Moerk to start fuming and pacing the house when she sees this comment. After all, this LSOS did get a ARCOM for duties performed during a period of war and didn’t have to resort to Facebook trolling to get one.

    • Skippy says:

      Brown-nosier like Roaches put worse LMAO ! ! !

    • riflemusket says:

      The ARCOM doesn’t surprise me. I guess this unit had the same policy as my unit during ODS concerning awards. Sadly we had substandard individuals receiving awards which they did not deserve..

      • Skippy says:

        We had a low speed and Very HIGH Drag.. Ass kisser given a bronze star. and all he basically was swallow and not spit ! ! !

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          Been there, seen that. ARCOM was the blanket EOT award in our Unit in A-stan, but I saw plenty of REMFs that never left the wire get BSMs for making coffee in HQ and keeping their A/C running.

          • Yef says:

            Only the BSM with V counts anyway. Meritorious BSM are given to officers for just showing up for a deployment.

            • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

              As well as Senior NCO’s and those who know & blow the right people.

      • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

        Riflemusket- you’re not saying that for some units after DS/DS E6 and above = BS, and E5 and below = ARCOM are ya??

        Say it wasn’t so…


  13. Mr Wolf says:

    I have to keep coming back here to edumacate y’all-

    Sgt Muldoon was the head dude in John Wayne’s ‘The Green Berets’

    So yeah, by association, Jason here gets to be one.


    • CLAW131 says:

      Aldo Ray (MSG Muldoon) would have kicked this LSOS’s ass with one flipper and both arms tied behind his back.

      Seeing as how was a WWII UDT Frogman who saw action at Okinawa.(according to WIKI)

      Hand salute for your service,Sir. RIP.

  15. Carlton G. Long says:

    Especially disturbing because my illustrious career spanned the years 1989-1992…I could have ended up serving with this Sparkle Pony.

  16. RunPatRun says:

    Small world, I recruited him when in I was in USAREC. Shame he didn’t take advantage of his opportunities in the Army and do well. smh

  17. Green Thumb says:

    It seems the Hells Angels sniffed this turd out. Good for them.

    But this maggot should not sweat it, There is a certain MC down there in Florida that will bring him on board. Just ask the “Big Turd” Riley Keeton.
