Anthony Howard Robinson; phony Ranger First Sergeant

| July 26, 2015

Robinson, Anthony Howard (9)

The folks at Military Phonies send us their work on this Anthony Howard Robinson fellow who claims that he’s a Ranger-qualified, parachutist qualified, First Sergeant who received an “honorable [discharge] under madical conditions” for his deployments to Panama, Desert Storm, Somalia and Bosnia.

What? You don’t believe him? Well, here’s the tattoo to prove it;

The National Personnel Records Center, however, says that he had 50 weeks in service, that he rocketed to the rank of Private E-1 and he was heavily decorated with the elusive and highly prized Army Service Ribbon;

Yeah, so he’s totally legit. Except for some minor discrepancies.

    You know when you go full fucktard?

    When you have tattoo’s of 1SG rank on BOTH arms…

    • Andy11M says:

      I didn’t even catch that. I thought he only had it on his left shoulder. Surprised he didn’t get his fantasy combat patches tattooed on as well. Of course if you imagine the rank placed that high on a actual Class-A jacket, it’s way too high. Think he has a fantasy CIB 4th award tattooed on there somewhere to goo with that set of no standard jump wings?

      • Snotcrow says:

        Nono, he can’t afford two tattoos.. clearly the one pic is in a mirror. But what is that jumpwings under the rank tattoo?

    • Climb to Glory says:

      I know, right. These fucking dipshits tattoo rank on their arm. Nobody in the military does that shit. This dude is a fucking moron.

      • Joey says:

        I have seen one person do it in my 9 years in. Right out of tech school he got A1C (E3) stripes tattooed on his arm. Couple months later he go knocked down to Amn (E2) and then kicked out less than a year after that. It takes a certain kind of stupid.

  2. HMCS (FMF) ret. says:

    Dude was “discharged” from the Army with “98 medical conditions”? WTF? More like 98 flare ups of his FTS!

    Six months in his unit and then discharged? Bet this “Call of Booty – Anal Buttsekks Warrior” pissed hot on a UA and was booted out.

  3. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    What was his “madical” condition, chronic Sandinmanginitis coupled with chronic fuckupitis and shitbirditis? Lyin’-assed bucket of toad snot!

  4. Andy11M says:

    Lets see, Army, mid 80’s, short term of service, discharge as a E-nothing. Flip a coin, drugs or AWOL?
    Also, anyone read Chicken Scratchings? I can read the hand written entry that says ENR (En-rout) to Ft Campbell, but the entry above I can’t make heads or tails of except for “Co A”. The rest is gibberish. Is it Jump School?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Drugs, AWOL, or he was a chronic fuckupaholic! After Ronald Reagan took office, the U.S. Military did some serious housecleaning, even something like a shoplifting conviction could have gotten someone thrown out, just his being put out so soon as an E1 flashes the word “DIRTBAG” brighter than a casino sign on the Las Vegas strip!

      • Hondo says:

        That would be my guess, PI. But there are a few other possibiliies.

        One would be a serious crime resulting in a court-martial and a BCD or DD, or acceptance of an OTHC discharge in lieu of court-martial.

        Another possibility would be a medical discharge. A series of incidents resulting from “misadjusted headspace and timing” could also have resulted in his being an E1 at 11 1/2 months TIS – and in a medical discharge.

        In any case, it’s pretty clear that something happened – either a serious criminal incident or he had a pattern of disciplinary problems and/or poor performance, regardless of the reason for same. Otherwise, he’d have been at least an E2 on discharge.

        In the last line of his record of assignments, the Unit/Duty station line on his record of assignments is partially blacked out, and the duty assignment is completely blacked out. I’m guessing that’s because he was on appellate leave pending approval of a punitive discharge, though it would also be consistent for hospitalization and a medical discharge as well.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      It says OSUT (One Station Unit Training) so I’m guessing that he was recycled during Basic Training or AIT.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        So he was a snotnosed dick-stepping fuckupaholic in Basic & AIT as well, wotta surprise, he must have been a desperate Recruiter’s quota-filler!

      • Green Thumb says:

        Basic recycle.

        If you get seriously injured, ok.

        Otherwise: WEAK!

  5. rb325th says:

    What a piece of shit. The douchebag got tossed out after only 6 months at his permanent duty station. Somebody get the belt sander for his idiotic tats. Scumsucking bastards.

  6. sj says:

    No NDSM? Not a sniper? Pfffftttttt. And, THBBFT

    • Sparks says:

      sj…I beat you to the no NDSM?, on the previous poser in the threads. Sorry…I just had to. But as I read this thread I was quick scanning for your No NDSM? Not a sniper? and sure as hell you nailed him. You da man!

  7. That Guy says:

    So, fun story I got from my tattoo artist the other day.
    A couple years back, some meth mouthed asshat walks into their tattoo parlor, says he was a sergeant major in the Army (1st Cav) and that he wants a tattoo of the three up, three down, and star.
    Now, half of the shop was vets, and nobody believed him, but knowing the part of town and knowing that it would likely get his ass kicked repeatedly for being a phony sack of shit, they gave it to him, and he picked out the Marine Corps SGM ranks (red and yellow). They weren’t even pretending to believe the guy, and now, whenever they see him, they yell ‘hey sergeant major’ and he literally bolts. Funny as hell.

    • Andy11M says:

      As I read that story I face palmed so hard, I think I broke my own nose.

    • Semper Idem says:

      Wouldn’t a USMC SGTMAJ’s insignia be three up, FOUR down? Just Checking. ;o)

      • Peter the Bubblehead says:

        That reminds me of the old A&C routine;
        Abbott: What’s three up and three down?
        Costello: End of the inning!

  8. sj says:

    Honda “Sales and Leasing Consultant” (on his FB). Is that the new language for “Lot Lizard?”

    • Andy11M says:

      perhaps someone should contact his employer to inquire about their knowledge of his outstanding military service? /sarc

      • Hack Stone says:

        There is always All Points Logistics, provided that he is All Points Logistics material.

      • Bobo says:

        Sent an e-mail to the employer with a link to this site. Suggested the employer independently verify by asking for his DD-214 and his Ranger class, then contacting the RTB with the info.

        Now, it would be nice if someone called one of the local news outlets to tell the investigative reporter du jour that there is a car salesman in Vineland who is plying his trade by claiming an extensive military record.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      “Lot Lizard” is Trucker slang for a truck stop hooker. Kinda fitting, he IS doing some serious attention whoring! To me, “Sales and Leasing Consultant” sounds like a fancy title for office gofer!

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    Sometimes, I think about getting a tattoo… and then one of these skankazoid slagheaps shows up and spoils it for me.

  10. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Any future Stolen Valor Act reform should include, “removal of any unearned tattoo with hot cattle iron and or cheese grader”.

  11. Green Thumb says:

    First Turd.

  12. Mike Kozlowski says:

    (reads this farkwit’s Facebook PM)

    English. Does he speak it?

    If NOTHING else shows these clowns for what they are, it’s their constant inability to speak/write English at anything more than a street hood level. You get to six stripes in ANY service and I guarantee you can put together a report that doesn’t sound like you’ve slammed a fifth of Jack followed by a 4×4 to the skull.


  13. thebesig says:

    Another brat that couldn’t be thankful, and proud, of earning his Army Service Ribbon and not being satisfied with that fact. 🙄 Shaking my head, just shaking my head, some people’s kids. 🙄

  14. LIRight says:

    After reading this story, I feel kind of inferior to the good “1st SGT.” During my time in the military I was never awarded a hand grenade bar…..although I did achieve recognition from our Drill Seargent for bayonet training. The recognition? SFC Austin as I recall, said, “you guys from New York ought to be pretty good at this.”

  15. RunPatRun says:

    Most likely, gets to first unit and not only doesn’t do his job, he wastes others’ time and energy with counseling, Art 15s and getting his chapter packet compiled and approved. We kicked a lot of garbage to the curb in the 80’s, but it was seldom automatic and took effort. At FT Carson E1-E4 were referred for counseling with first DWI or positive UA, the second offense meant the boot. OTOH, NCOs went out the door with the first strike.

    • LIRight says:

      Beautiful area at Ft. Carson – was there 66-67 and have a son (currently deployed) stationed there.

      • RunPatRun says:

        Agreed, abd a wonderful area for recreation. It was what they called my ‘home base assignment’ and always ended up there between time in Germany and Korea.

      • Poetrooper says:

        It was a pristine picture of the WWII era in Summer 1959 when I took basic there, still wooden barracks everywhere and no homes built halfway up the mountains and surrounded by freeways like now.

        • LIRight says:

          I’m sure that the same wooden barracks were there when I did Basic, AIT, BUT and AUT – heat was supplied by a coal stove as I recall and the PEAK was the main PX.

          I did some hunting out there since my late brother (22 yrs. USAF) lived in Glenwood Springs just off of I-70.

  16. Josey Wales says:


  17. sapper3307 says:

    Looks like he had an OCS (on city streets) packet completed.

  18. C2Show says:

    Heres hoping that his 98 medical conditions was an error and he meant got out in 1998. These guys never think they will get caught. At some point, I think these morons will get the clue never to make up shit about their careers. To the point where TAH wont havent much to report on it…probably wont happen but oh well.

  19. JimV says:

    22 years as a Army Ranger? Check out his employers

    • D says:

      Awesome. He was in the 75th Ranger Battalion. He must have been the only one in that specific unit.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        22 years in the 75th Ranger Battalion? WOW, that’s one high-powered supersonic nose-picker of a glittery gargoyle gonad-sniffing Sparkle Pony!

    • sj says:

      I.e., Lot Lizzard.

    • CLAW131 says:

      I wonder if the owner/president of the dealership knows that in reality he was a buck private with less than a years service?

      Was being a 22 year Ranger the deciding factor is being hired as a Lot Lizard? Did he list that on his resume? If so, sounds like grounds for dismissal to me.

      Should the owner be notified by E-Mail? If so, I’d like to be a fly on the wall after the loudspeaker squawks out: “Tony,Tony, Ron wants to see you in his office!! And that means NOW !!”

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        And the power of the Google gets stronger with Anthony Howard Robinson (GH!) with each post, doesn’t it? He joined in the early eighties, I wonder if he even finished high school?

        • CLAW131 says:

          But once again simple math exposes yet another embellisher.

          Based on his own admissions in print, as of
          now he may be at least 55/56 years old.

          He says he ETSed(vice Retirement) in 1998. Employment profile says he spent 22 years as a Ranger. So even given the benefit of the doubt that he enlisted at age 17 in 1976, that would make his birthday sometime in 1959.

          Pretty good looking today for having spent 22 years as an 11B Ranger. No wrinkles, gray hair or humped/stooped shoulders. Looks pretty soft and squishy to me. Just like a big old teddy bear you would want to squeeze until the stuffing (bullshit) starts to pop out.

          YMMV, but if he’s 55/56 years old, I’m only 29 going on 30.

      • Bobo says:

        He does as of this morning, if he checks his e-mail.

  20. sj says:

    I’m think of getting a TAH tat. Maybe with an “I Am Hondo” slogan.

    • sj says:

      And, as I just thought of and mention on another thread, the Tat will include a NDSM ribbon and/or medal. Sadly, I’m a loser and only have 1.

  21. JarHead Pat says:

    Yut, pissed hot, classic total fuckup, your picking on me cuz I black, poof….gone. blacklivesmatter.

  22. Carlton G. Long says:

    He also managed to earn the coveted “marksman” badge…out of 40 targets, he managed to hit at least 23…show some “respeck”

    • CLAW131 says:

      According to Scott Douglas Leddy, an SF poser who got 17 Purple Hearts in Bamberg during Desert Storm, that coveted Marksman Badge is known as a “Silver Cross.”

      The Hand Grenade clasp is a nice touch.

      I’m surprised that he doesn’t have it as a tat.

  23. ChipNASA says:

    Who is the Flying FUCK would want to fake being a First Shirt? That’s the hardest shittiest job (at times) that I can think of, dealing with all the Unit’s fuckups and discipline problems, who in their right MIND would want to surround themselves with, and/or identify themselves voluntarily, with people like that????
    Oh wait….

    🙄 😀

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      The same people who fake Purple Hearts and the POW medal – it’s much easier to pretend than to actually do the things required to earn the medals.

  24. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Catching up on Sons of Anarchy, I’m reminded of the guy they booted who still had the club tat.

    “Fire or knife?”

  25. Jordan Rott says:

    I am so glad he got that tattooed on himself.

  26. CLAW131 says:

    Was Ist Los?

    Tony the First Turd posted (10 hours ago) on his Facebook page that he is now working for Chevrolet.

    Wonder if he got canned at Rossi Honda?

  27. CLAW131 says:

    Kinda slow news day, so here’s an update: Tony the First Turd has wiped all references to working at Honda, Chevrolet, and any past dealerships from his Facebook page.

    He’s still pictured on the team roster at Honda and no changes have been made to his bio.

    I’m betting he got canned and Honda’s IT gal will drop him from the duty roster when they hire a replacement or as she gets around to making changes to the company website.

    Either way, AMF, Tony the First Turd.

    • D says:

      His bio now only has a reference to previously serving in the United States Army.

      • CLAW131 says:

        Yep, I saw that also.

        Plus all photos (except for one he missed) showing his Top Kick tat have been wiped from Facebook.

        The only photo left of him in uniform is the barracks scene with his buds where he says “me @ 18 just made Corporal and he says it was taken at Harmony Church in “Fort Banning.”

        So I wonder if he is still a Sales/Leasing Consultant or has been relegated to chamois man for the after oil change courtesy car wash/detail team.

        Regardless, AMF, First Turd.

  28. CLAW131 says:

    I figured I would give it about a month and then check up on old Tony the First Turd.

    Lo and Behold, he has been dropped from the Team Lineup at Rossi Honda.

    I wonder how that came about? Did he get traded or just given his outright release? Either way, good riddance.

    AMF Turd !!

  29. Airbornerobinson says:

    Glad to see pieces of sh*t like this get exposed!! AATW!!!
