John Barger; Phony Marine

| July 22, 2015

John Barger

There’s this fellow, John Barger in Indianapolis, Indiana who suddenly decided that he should be a Marine Sniper to make up for all of his failures in life. Folks who have known him for his whole life had doubts about him. But being a Marine sniper in this day and age of self-identification is so easy. Just put on a Marine cap, a Marine shirt and some cool pictures on your Facebook page and viola!

Then put up some crybaby crap about being forgotten on your Facebook wall;

John Barger - Forgotten

John Barger - We

John Barger - Marine shirt

John Barger Marine Sniper

John Barger the sniper

You can always get a tattoo – that will make you legit;

But not among real Marines and not at the National Personnel Records Center;

    He’s not a fake, his attendance at any Marine Corps training is just undocumented, making him an undocumented Marine sniper.

  2. Combat Historian says:

    Marine scout sniper phonies are a dime a dozen; I’m still waiting for the poser who claims to be a combat historian…

    • MrFace says:

      Im still awaiting the stolen valor for ye old communications field. Doubt that will ever happen.

      “So, basically what you are saying is, You are a server geek?”

      “Shooting Comm all over the world.”

      • chooee lee says:

        I was a “Coop Cleaner” in the navy for three months does that count ? Oh yea and then I was a “mess Cook” for awhile too.

      • Hack Stone says:

        If they want to falsely claim to being a Comm Puke (why, I’ll never know), for the right price, I can can provide them a few tales of C&E working party hi jinks to give them some credibility. $25 gets you the shoveling shit at the horse stables story. If you really want to convince them, I’ll sell you my story of doing maintenance at the 29 Palms golf course. That one will cost you, bring your check book.

    • Thunderstixx says:

      I’m still waiting to find at least one clerk, supply clerk or truck driver that served in Vietnam.
      Every last one of them I meet were contracted by the CIA, inserted into Cambodia, Laos, and North Vietnam and killed thousands !!!

      • MrFace says:

        John Rambo could have been a Supply Clerk… ๐Ÿ˜€

        • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

          Then we would need a requisition form to draw first blood….

          • Hack Stone says:

            Rambo in the chow hall for breakfast;

            Messman: what do you want?

            John Rambo: I want what they want!

            Messman: So, do you want an omelet or not?

    • MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

      I am waiting for a phony to claim they sailed the seven seas, standing port and starboard watches, in search of adventure as a Boiler Technician who steamed 1200 # propulsions plants.

      • W2 says:

        How about a fake GSM gettin’ it done with four, count ’em, four LM2500’s with a sooper secret CIA developed CPP system? If that doesn’t do it for you, how about the fake A ganger steaming a CG47 class waste heat boiler and being qualified as a deep sea assassin that can sink submarines with his DARPA developed laser vision? I know a couple of guys down at the VFW . . . .

    • A Proud Infidelยฎโ„ข says:

      We don’t see many fake Combat Engineers either.

      • Hack Stone says:

        You can’t forget Zippy, the numbnuts fake Grenada-Beurit Marine Engineer. He is so bad-assed, he wears a steel pot helmet when he is on the Internet.

    • Skippy says:

      Or a 88M Truck Driver. When that happens I’ll shit my pants LMAO !!!!!

      • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

        “Yep – there I was. Surrounded by 1000 enemy soldiers and all I had was an M4 and 20 rounds. But I wasn’t going to let them have this 5000 gallon tanker of glider fuel I was pulling….”

        • CLAW131 says:

          nbcguy, now you should know you never,ever, load any more than 4,350 gallons of glider fuel in a 5,000 gallon tanker trailer.

          You’ve got to allow for in route fuel expansion and cross country weight restrictions.

      • riflemusket says:

        Or how about a 13Bravo Cannoncocker?
        But we have see our share of gun bunnies pretending to be something their not. There’s been quite a few on these pages

      • sj says:

        Yeah but from what I read, truck driving was a hazardous MOS in the last wars. Hat’s off to them. Even Patton recognized that way back when.

    • T-Bird Henry says:

      I’m still waiting for the fake Air Force missile maggot to pop up, so to speak. Why not? there can’t be THAT many out there who could blow your cover.

  3. HMCS (FMF) ret. says:

    Another Call of Booty anal buttsekks warrior! And with no NDSM to boot!!

  4. sj says:

    I’m pissed. I am the NDSM police and now all you poachers are in my AO. THBBFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Skippy says:

      You started a trend… Nothing to be bad about Lol…. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • sj says:

        I view it as training a new generation of protectors of the sanctity of the illusive NDSM. I’m a geezer and my legacy will be carried forward with pride and dignity by Sparks, Claw, et al. I wonder if the Old Guard will carry a NDSM banner when I’m planted at Arlington? Alas, I only have one.

        I just posted on another thread (the First Sgt tat one) that I was thinking of getting a TAH Tat with the slogan “I Am Hondo”. I now see I MUST add a NDSM Medal to said Tat.

        It touches me so that I’ll go get another Scotch. Over

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      SJ, sweetie, it’s a gedunk medal. They are only rarely given out, and only to worthy individuals.

  5. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Love the selfie in the mirror, especially that he captured part of a urinal and that he is looking at the camera, not the mirror. What a tard.

    • ChipNASA says:

      Her’s just waiting to turn tricks in the truck stop men’s room.

      John Barger: “Hey, Did you know I made $405 giving guys blow jobs in the truck stop men’s room.
      John’s Buddy:”Who Gave you $5”
      John Barger: “ALL OF THEM!!!”
      ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
      /try the veal.

  6. Ex-PH2 says:

    It’s the thought that counts, right?

    He thinks he is/was a Marine, .:. he is/was a Marine.

  7. D says:

    His records burned up in the fire. Two of them, actually. The NPRC fire and his house fire destroyed official and personal copies. Unfortunately, no record exists of his service. Oh, and anyone who ever served with him is dead. There may be a record in the Pentagon’s special “classified” area, but the president is the only one with access. The only proof he had for the VA was a picture of some of his sniper kills.

    • GDContractor says:

      He could wear a 7.62 bullet around his neck on a string… that would be proof Randy Abbot [SPIT] style.

  8. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    A Nobody + Internet Access = A Nobody on the Internet

    Nothing further …

  9. Just an Old Dog says:

    He looks about as hard as a bucket of snot without the bucket.

    limp dick

  10. Green Thumb says:


  11. Friend S. Wilkins says:

    The selfie of the smug little prick standing there in front of a mirror with a urinal in the background just reminded me of a scene from one of my favorite movies, Runaway Train (1985). I hope you all speak French. No English subtitles. Sorry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

      I think he said while shoving his face in the toilet, “take this you little pussie, man up, do your job, quit your snivelling or I will kill you, your unborn children and their children”.

  12. Skippy says:

    Well another attention whore….
    Or as one said above,
    Call to Bootie Warrior, all the way..

    So in under five words sum up this turd

    BAG !!!!

  13. Sparks says:

    No NDSM? Loser!

  14. meg a says:

    This douchenozzle pisses me offf. My little brother is at officer’s training for the marines. I am proud of him. But this poseing bozo thinks he can pretend to be in the marines. Man screw him. The selfie is probably the best part It just screams, “I’m pathetic.”

  15. Daisy Cutter says:

    He has self-identified as a Marine sniper and is an expert in brown hair.

  16. Jordan Rott says:

    And in his retarted facebook post he says “us veterans really don’t get respect anymore” fucking piece of shit we get more respect then was ever given to veterans in the last 50 or 60 years, and the fact he never served at all to make some dumbass comment like that what a scumbag. Although, you should’ve waited to call him out until he got that tattoo.

  17. Big Steve says:

    Whoa… check out his Facebook page, guys. He’s got more selfies than most women, even though he’s very average-looking at best. But in one of the pics he is in some public restroom of all places, and you can clearly see a toilet and urinals in the background.
    This guy is a real class act. And he actually has airhead women “liking” his pics, calling him “babe,” etc. Am I dreaming this crap????

  18. CRAIG PAYNE says:

    Your wait is over my man.Iam a U.S. Army Vietnam Vet 68/69 And I did drive a truck from camp Hollaway to LZ Oasis maney maney times
    right thought the tea plantation .you could not make that run without a 60cal a raido and at lest 4 guys with m16 or m14.
    Nice to meet you Bro

  19. Kimberli says:

    I feel bad for him…. Yeah, he opened himself up to all the ridicule and harshness because of all the lies he continuously tells….insecurity issues drives people to this….it’s sad….

    • KimmiK says:

      I don’t know what is true or what isn’t…. I see a tired, broken man…
      We have all said and done some stupid things that we just want to forget and leave buried under a rock…. We don’t need to rip each other apart…. Life has a tendency to that beyond our control enough….

  20. Green Thumb says:


    This turd is not even a good poser.

    So much so, that I doubt even the False Commander Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) would hire this tool.

    Maybe for custodial work or such, but I could see this stain taking selfies with him and the toilet.

  21. Bill barger says:
