Jeffrey Thomas Roberts; phony SEAL

| November 5, 2015

Jeffrey Roberts

Our friends at Guardian of Valor write about this fellow, Jeffrey Thomas Roberts who they say has been profiting off his phony SEAL claims for nine years. When they confronted him he broke down in tears and said that it was everyone else’s fault because they assumed that he was a SEAL and he just didn’t correct them. Sounds about right.

Jeffrey Thomas Robert is 50 Years old, served in the U.S. Navy as a GM2. He was NEVER a S.E.A.L., and he never went through BUDs. For 9 years Jeffrey lived this lie. He carefully created a world where he was a member of various S.E.A.L. teams. He started a company, Zero Sum Solutions LLC, held charity shooting events, took thousands in donations, even helped a little girl with a school project on “Operation Red Wing” providing his SEAL Trident, Name Tapes, and a challenge coin. Jeffrey submitted an over 14 chapter “Autobiography” about his life as a S.E.A.L., which reads like a made up world of danger and international intrigue; it is a Bad James Bond film mixed with the movie “Navy S.E.A.L.S” starring Charlie Sheen and Bill Paxton.


Of course, one of the things that might have made people think he was a SEAL, was the Trident tattoo on his right arm.

    Nothing screams legit like a tattoo.

    • Hondo says:

      Except maybe a 14 chapter “autobiography” about being a SEAL and engaging in multiple kinds of
      “hush-hush derring-do”.

    • Mr Wolf says:

      Remember back in the day when all those ‘legs’ would get airborne tats to make people think they were really Airborne?

      Jump wings just not doing it anymore???

      • desert says:

        If the crying pussy wants to be a hero, give him a couple of diapers and put him on the front line in afghanistan!

  2. Old Trooper says:

    WTF So tired of this bullshit. Yeah, gtting ink makes you a legit SEAL/Ranger/Green Beret/etc.

    • OldManchu says:

      Wait a minute…. you mean a tat doesn’t legitimize the claim? Poor guy probably didn’t know that, so it wasn’t his fault.

    • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

      I see a prison tat that says “I take it in the Ass” in his future…

  3. Skippy says:

    saw this on SV.. last night another good service record down the toilet..
    WTF is it about Tattoos is it suppose to make them legit ???? do any of them understand it’s forever

    • HMCS (FMF) ret. says:

      Didn’t you know that with every purchase of the “Call of Booty – Anal Buttsekks Warrior” game, you get a free tat of the special warfare emblem of your choice? It’s in the fine print on the game…

  4. Marine_7002 says:

    Well hello, Jeffy-poo. Welcome to the TAH Hall of Shame. You’re forever enshrined now.

  5. OldManchu says:

    What a fucking douchebag! Walking around in that ridiculous outfit. Like he is on the set of Lone Survivor or something. I bet he’s fun to be around at a party. Just sit back and listen to his sewer overflow.

  6. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “When they confronted him he broke down in tears…” Way to man-up, big boy.

  7. 3E9 says:

    What a dipshit. An autobiography? Really?

    • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

      “Chapter 19 – The Night I Became Bubba’s Bitch”

      Yep, can hardly wait for the book signing event…

  8. HMCS (FMF) ret. says:

    Sounds like there is a lot more going on here with Jeffy-poo that what was brought to light in the GoV story… and I see some jail time for him in his future.

    Hey Jeffy-poo, do you like cockmeat sammiches with extra manmayo? You will…

  9. RWB52 says:

    Im sure that all the little kiddies were so impressed. What a fucking fag

  10. Dave Hardin says:

    Great work by GoV. Thorough and well written. Effective follow through and an end to this idiots nonsense.

    Good on you AA

  11. 3/17 Air Cav says:

    Ut Oh, another “challenge Coin” I’m convinced, between the tats and the coin the guy is legit!

  12. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    He has the tattoo.

    He is LEGIT.

    All SEALs, everyone gets a Trident!


    I have seen more “Bone Frogs” over Tridents.

    Most posers opt for the Trident because it is recognizable.

    The “Bone Frogs” are often not, unless you know what you are looking for.

    Oh well there goes my theory.

    • Skippy says:

      Odd think being trapped at NTC and Deployed I’ve seen a few and worked with a few high speed peps. and I’ve never seen any of them brag about tats or hand out coins
      Am I missing something here or is there a lack of parental attention and love from there childhood that makes them crave attention?????? Any ideas

  13. David says:

    oooooh, and an an adjustable buttstock… bet he describes himself as an “operator”.

    • HMCS (FMF) ret. says:

      “Adjustable Buttstock”… better not let that info get out if he goes to the local “pound him in the ass” jail… some of his new “friends” may get all wet just thinking of it. 🙂

  14. Sparks says:

    For any of my fellow Vietnam veterans and I am sure the program is still alive and well, the “Operation Red Wing”, had a WHOLE other meaning in my time. NSFW to explain here though.

    Phoney SEAL starter kit:

    Old Desert Camouflage Boonie Hat…1 Ea.
    Middle East style scarf thingy….1 Ea.
    ‘Tactical’ Sunglasses….1 Pair
    One Really Cool Tattoo….As Required
    To get the lingo down…Own & Read the following books:

    Lone Survivor
    American Sniper
    Breaking BUDs
    Among Heroes
    Suffer In Silence

    Seems he is a ‘Home Schooled’ Opererator

    • Atkron says:

      Dammit…meant to say ‘Appearator’

    • OldManchu says:

      You forgot the beard.

    • AZTop says:

      Let see… never wore the scarf thingy, never wear sunglasses,even during deployments to Iraq, Somalia and 6 years at the Stumps, (explains the crows feet on my face). Almost 24 yrs and no jarhead tattoo, and, never liked military jargon. Oops, I do have the Bonnie, though. That last one saved me, otherwise I may not have been able to prove I was a Marine.


    Why does every one think they have to put S.E.A.L. on every thing that some of the problem with SV. This GUY was a GM2 nothing wrong with that. If he did support work with any of the ground unit’s NSW,EOD,Seabees,Base Security and ran and over saw ranges what would be wrong with that. I had a GM2 that got out in 2009 want to work for a PMC making 150K plus. So if this guy’s just trust people under stand what they do instead of adding the S.E.A..L thing to it.They would be good to go, but NO now this guy could be going to Jail what a dumb ass.

    We have people who study serial killers we need them to study these SV dumb ass’s. my 25 cents

  18. Jarhead says:

    I am ASSUMING he is a candy ass little bitch who always has to hide behind his sun glasses when spewing shit. Don’t tell him what I assumed. He might not correct my assumption and break down in tears. AGAIN!

  19. John "Faker 6" Giduck says:

    I like Jeffrey Thomas Roberts. He just needs to refine his story a bit – make it more exotic and foreign.

    I’d like to hear more about this “pond in the ass” prison. What kind of stories do someone have to tell to get that? That sounds dreamy.


    John “Faker 6” Giduck

    • Jarhead says:

      Faker 6…….RE: your inquiry as to the “pond (sic) in the ass”. It is a reference to a huge helping of old water bottle enemas used to clean out a canal for Thor and friends. You don’t really need stories for that, just lie your ass off like most of these POSERS do and see if you can reap some financial gain for the story. If Thor, Bubba, and company sound dreamy to you; chances are stock in Vaseline would be a good investment for you.

    In the words of Sons of Anarchy,

    “Fire or knife?”

  21. Jarhead says:

    Having lived and enjoyed a great 10 years in Nashville (25 miles from where this POS lives) there are a lot of contacts for me to re-conect with tomorrow. Some good investigative journalism comes from the area. Ten bucks says Jonn is going to hear from at least one local shortly.

    • Jarhead says:

      DAMN!!!!!! After contacting all the television stations and largest daily newspaper in the Nashville area (The Tennessean), finally I realize hardly anyone who served in the military ends up in media communications. Those who did not serve show very little interest in exposing the phonies. The only promise I see is a message left with a reporter from Channel 2 (WKRN) who did in fact serve. Good thing nobody took me up on that bet. To my last day I will never give up contacting media outlets in hope of finding someone who resents POSERS as much as we all do.

    Here’s a shorter more accurate ST-2 account. Less than 1 chapter.

    Show up with a shaved head as smooth as a cue ball = ‘Get a haircut, and check the watch bill’.
    Try not to piss off Rudy.
    Oh shit Rudy is always pissed off if you are a new guy.
    Try to evade Rudy.
    Oh shit Rudy sees, hears, and knows all.

    It’s cold here. This sucks.

    Nice to be home, these Norwegians are party animals.
    The Norwegians have stolen all the local girls. I can’t wait until they go home.
    The Norwegians have left and all the girls ask ‘Are the Norwegians going to be there’ when one of the guys is out ‘recruiting’ talent for the party. This sucks.

    It’s freezing here. This sucks.
    Trying to be a sneaky point guy on the heath sucks.
    If she’s got a ’10’ body, an ‘8’ face, a ‘9’ personality, and a huge birthmark on her face, she’s an ’11’.
    Teamguy dies celebrating Birthday at The Last Splash. Almost.

    It’s fucking freezing here. This sucks.

    Wait, we can buy cases of Bacardi for how much?

    I think cocaine smugglers learned about stashing bricks of cash in spare rooms floor to ceiling from some gal who went to a party at an ST-2 house and saw a room that was floor to ceiling cases of Bacardi.

    I am never, ever drinking rum again.

    It’s actually not that cold, but we’ll bitch about it anyways because we earned the right. Team Two, baby.

    Time to head home. Whatever are we going to do with all this remaining ammo?

    In other words, every other real SOF story, ever. 90% suck, 10% awesome, and it’s not where you are and/or what you’re doing, it’s who you’re with. The greatest guys, ever.

    The End.

    And if the shitbag Roberts, who claimed ST-2, ever reads this: look up Matt Bourgeois, and then…well…I won’t type out my suggestion in light of Bernath possibly finding a way to exploit it. Take your best guess.

    Here’s his number, he hurt way more people than Shipley exposed.

    Unfortunately, the link on Guardians of Valor is taken down. From what I have heard, he threatened to sue if it wasn’t. I don’t understand why they caved…
