Kevin Paul Kowalkowski; another phony Beirut Marine

| June 12, 2015

Kowalkowski, Kevin Paul

The folks at Military Phonies has a full-time Beirut historian on the payroll now, so all those phony Beirut Marines had better tuck tail. Their latest bust is this Kevin Paul Kowalkowski fellow who did indeed serve honorably in the Marine Corps for eight years (four active, four in the Reserves), but he joined in July 1983, just three months before the Beirut bombing, that’s not enough time to go through initial training and deploy.

Yeah, I was in the military at the same time as the Beirut bombings, I was at Fort Hood and in the Army, though, but I guess I can claim that I am a Beirut veteran, too.

    Well there’s Vietnam era veteran, cold war era veteran, so maybe you could be a Beruit Era veteran. (Sarcasm);) Hmmmm. Oh and no NDSM…damn.

    All these guys have to do is to take a page from Vietnam Veterans of America’s page: form an organization requiring only that one have have served during a particular event or conflict and voila!–legit and legal. They can call it the Beirut Veterans of America, or BVA. And why not? Few are bothered by VVA’s open membership, allowing one never to have served a minute in Vietnam to qualify to claim he is a “Vietnam Veteran of America.” VVA isn’t alone in this. There’s also the Korea War Veterans Association. Note that the title includes “War Veteran.” The thing is, if you never saw a day of war, you’re in. Just pay the fee and make sure that you served in some capacity in Korea any old time. And if you are old enough, even a visit to Korea during your hitch isn’t required. If you were in service between “June 25, 1950 and Jan. 31, 1955,” you, too, can lay legitimate claim to being a “Korea War Veteran.”

      CORRECTION: It’s Korea War Veterans Association, not “of America.” I should have recalled that from the Ferris affair, the fellow who wore medals not his to honor his brother and who, I guess to honor his brother, too, claimed to be a combat Vet as well. He ultimately resigned–officially, for other reasons– as prez of KWVA and had his defenders to the bitter end. An organization that single-shoots a particular war or conflict for members is, necessarily, bound to fold eventually through attrition. So, it makes sense from a business standpoint to use a larger net. Unfortunately, it carries a side effect.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        Damn. I see now that I did write Association originally. That’s a mistaken correction, now corrected, I guess.

        • 3E9 says:

          If it was a mistake that didn’t need correction but was corrected does that make it an erection (erroneous correction)?

    • David says:

      well, since there has only been a cease-fire in effect since the ’50s and technically we are still at war with the Norks…isn’t anyone who served in Korea since then a Korean War vet? (yeah, I’m duckin’ too)

    WELL LOOKY HERE, another thumbsucking booger-eating, bedwetting lardassed embellisher who has NOTHING to be ashamed about in his military career, BUT HE HAD TO make shit up and blab it, which in this, the age of the Internet, leads to people like this fucking themselves, their families, and their reputations. He’s also grinning like he’s celebrating having given 1,000 blowjobs!!

  7. Friend S. Wilkins says:

    I hope I didn’t confuse anyone by changing my name to “Flash”. I was just being kinda goofy there. Sorry. 😉

    The instant I saw that stupid looking grin on Kowalkowski’s face, I says to myself, “Hey, you remember that scene from Full Metal Jacket?”

    WARNING: Harsh Language Alert 🙂

    Gunny says, “Private Pyle. I’m going to give you 3 seconds. Exactly THREE fucking seconds to wipe that stupid looking grin off your face. Or I will….”

    You all know the rest. I’m in enough trouble already! LMFAO!!!!

  8. Hondo says:

    A minor clarification to the info at the Military Phonies article Jonn linked above: if this guy is claiming “I had to stay in the reserves 4 years to satisfy my MSO and that’s where I got 8 years as a Marine” – he’s lying. The total MSO did not become 8 years until 1 July 1984; prior to that, it was 6 years.

    The guy entered active duty in July 1983. You do the math.

    Yeah, “Ski” – you can wipe that dung-eating, “cat ate the canary” grin off your face now. You’re busted bigtime.

    Pink tie.

    Enough said.

    What’s next…War Heroes Wannabee Association…..WHWA! Membership requires that you wish, want, and dream. Good imagination a plus. Practiced liars go to the head of the line. Douche bags are always welcome. Then they can start their own web site..”Imagination Is Hell, But Delusion Is Heaven”.

    He has the face of someone who screws people out of money. Like a shady car salesman.
