Arland Moss; phony SEAL

| February 12, 2016

Arland Moss3

The folks at Military Phony send us their work on this Arland Moss fellow. His career as a SEAL is based on attractive ribbons, apparently, because the 53 year old displays medals from Vietnam and from before the Second World War as well as a SEAL Medal;

Moss stuff

Well, the truth is that no one can find a record of his SEAL training, and the National Personnel Records Center can find no record of his Navy service. The folks at Military Phony have requested his records a couple of times but each time the file comes back empty;

Well we finally found some service for him, but no SEAL training;

    Well, Duh. Most of the records are classified (and on Hillary’s server) and the unclassified ones were destroyed in THE fire. Everyone knows this.

  2. This guy reminds me of the Native American whose tribe was standing by him in the face of overwhelming evidence disputing his claims.

  3. ocean12 says:

    Hey all you frauds, invest a little time and research the order of precedence on the medals.

    Holy Little Bighorn! The way I see it, he is probably an accomplished canoe paddler or kayak-er and one thing led to another over the years…until he was not only a Navy Vet but a combat-hardened SEAL. Cripes.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Oh, I get it. He was one of those ‘ghost’ warriors who used recently-discovered gravity waves to turn on the tardis so that he could time-travel and hit the beaches at Chu Lai.

    Nice work if you can get it.

  7. Hondo says:

    He’s 53? And he wears decorations from Vietnam? Hmm.

    If he’s 53, that means he was born in 1962 or 1963.

    1962 + 18 = 1980. Vietnam my azz.

    Folks, let me introduce you to “Chief Fulla-Bull”.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      I once ran a medical aid call on a drunk who got his ass stomped by a bunch of teenagers after running his mouth. He claimed to be a Korean War combat vet, but I noticed while copying info from his ID that he was born in 1954. I’m a history nerd, plus (step-)Grandpa was a Korean War infantry vet, and I can do basic math, so this doesn’t add up. So I asked him if he was sure he meant Korea and not Vietnam.

      “No, man, Ko-rea! That’s where I was.”

      I replied, “No you weren’t.”

      He got all pissed off, so I asked how the hell he fought in a war that ended a year before he was born. That prompted threats of violence, which my captain shut down by pointing out to the liar that he’d already gotten his ass kicked once that night, he probably didn’t want a repeat of that experience. After that, the drunk asshole quoted down a bit and just gave me dirty looks until the medics took him.

      • Blaster says:

        Do you think that they think, that everyone else is as out of touch, clueless, etc. as they are? I would think that they have to or hey wouldn’t try it.

        They have to know that there are actuall vets out there that would/will know the truth.

        I guess that is what helps catch them.

    • Casey says:

      I was going to say something about that. Born in ’59, I was 16 when Saigon fell in ’75, and I’m 56 right now. So he must have been, what, 13 then.

      Or maybe -like the “veteran” in Falling Down– he was a drummer boy.

  8. RM3(SS) says:

    Hey this guy gotta be legit! 260 friends on facebook, all of them women. Everyone knows only a real deal SEAL could pull in those numbers. LOL!!!

  9. Jarhead says:

    Cowabunga…him heap bad ass! Him also speak with forked tongue and fucked memory.

  10. Claw says:

    *260 friends on facebook, all of them women.*

    After looking at a few of them, I’m betting cash money that 250 of them are fake pages.

    Yep, he’s got it going on, plus he looks all felonious and shit.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Funny you should mention felonies.

      Looks like he was sentenced in ID a few years back, and the link shows our boy posing with a bunch of scary black guns. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t felons barred from owning weapons?

  11. Green Thumb says:

    What a fucking turd.

    Dude is trying to look all tough and shit as well.

    Chief Bag of Ass.

  12. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    His tribal name is “Two Dogs Fucking”, but his buddies know him as “Two Dogs”.

    You’re Google famous, Two Dogs….

    Arland Moss = Two Dogs Fucking
    Arland Moss = Two Dogs Fucking
    Arland Moss = Two Dogs Fucking
    Arland Moss = Two Dogs Fucking
    Arland Moss = Two Dogs Fucking

    • Casey says:

      Reminds me of a bit from a Terry Pratchett novel. One of the characters was known as One Man Bucket for most of the novel. Near the end the protagonist asked what his full name was.

      It turns out that One Man Bucket (who was embarrassed about the story)came from a tribe where the father named the newborn after the first thing he saw. In this case it was “One Man Pouring a Bucket of Water Over Two Dogs.”

      The protagonist said it could be worse, and One Man Bucket replied “This is true. I could have my older (by 5 minutes) brother’s name.” Protagonist replied “Two Dogs Fighting doesn’t sound too bad.”

      One Man Bucket started to laugh himself silly. “Two Dogs Fighting? He would have loved to have been called Two Dogs Fighting…”

    BUSTED nine ways to Sunday, but here’s MY advice to Arland moss:

    Chin up, BOTH OF THEM! Tomorrow is another day!!

  14. Skippy says:

    And I bet he has Magical Thoughts To….

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.. ! ! ! ! !



  15. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Chief Speaks Heap Big Shit of the Wannabe tribe.

    OTOH, not often you get a guy posing as a SEAL AND a submariner. There have been a couple of folks I knew off the boats who reenlisted so they could try for SEAL, but those guys were very rare, and STD was NOT a source rating (although STG was.)

    Poor dumb fucker.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      STS. Fucking autocorrect. Although maybe I was closer to the truth the first go round.

      • NECCSEABEECPO says:

        The other thing is if you look at the time. Lines up with around Don Shipley’s Time so this guy is definitely a dumb ass. He did lay claim to Team 3 not 1 or 2 With Don’s time. The other thing is that SEAL team 3 was not around in V-NAM

  16. chooee lee says:

    Not only that but that Crow is for an E6 1st class Sonar Operator not an E5 2nd class.

  17. Bobo says:

    I’m going to take a stab in the dark and guess that he was a submarine ST. Not too many would know that the rating for a submarine ST is STS, as opposed to the surface STs, who are STGs. I’ll ask around and see if anyone knows him.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Imma doubt that, Bobo, not with zero service.

      More likely he knew someone who served.

      Hell, half the skimmers didn’t even know boats had both FTG’s AND FTB’s.

  18. Peter the Bubblehead says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that a Marine Corps good conduct ribbon on the bottom row right next to the Navy good conduct ribbon? Plus I’m pretty sure Sea Service Deployment would go below either of those.

  19. TheCloser says:

    TWO awards of this!:
    The American Defense Service Medal was a military award of the United States Armed Forces, established by Executive Order 8808, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, on June 28, 1941.[1][2] The medal was intended to recognize those military service members who had served on active duty between September 8, 1939 and December 7, 1941.

    Totally legit.

    • Combat Historian says:

      He’s like the real-life Casca*, soldiering and sailoring since he was born in 26 B.C. and serving in every elite outfit from the Roman Legions to the Janissaries to the Comanches to the WWII U.S. Marines to the modern SEALs…no doubt this guy is LEGIT…///

      *extra brownie points if you recognize the reference…

      • NECCSEABEECPO says:

        We already know he is dumb ass , but it looks to me he was so dumb he put the ADSM on and I believe he was confused because look at the little strips they are the same as a CAR but the CAR does not have the full yellow background so he didn’t do his research. May be a dumb conclusion on my part but it was a dumb mistake on his part.

  20. B Woodman says:

    Where’s Chief Ten Bears? He ought to be weighing in on this featherweight.

  21. RaynMan says:

    Here’s a clue. I’m 59 years old and joined the Army THE DAY AFTER my 17th birthday. My original orders from Ft. Gordon, GA were to “APO 96491” (Vietnam). Of my graduating class (05C) 22 of us were slated to go there. Our orders were revoked the next week and we were scattered to the winds. Why revoked? There were no combat operations in 1974 and no more replacements required.

    So…how could a 53 year old spend two tours (two years) in Vietnam before 1974? He was 11 years old when I entered the service.

  22. Bubblehead Ray says:

    I knew it!! I knew if I read this blog long enough some fucking poser would claim he was an STS! BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Ol’ Two Dogs needs to learn how to count. I’m 56 and the Vietnam war ended when I was 14, and that’s a First Class Crow (STS1 or STG1), not Second Class, and NO ONE who is qualified in Submarines would list his rate without the SS designation (STS1/SS).

    What a maroon.

    • Dave Hardin says:

      Curious. Are there Hole Snipes on subs? Or is everyone kinda one.

      Do you have twidgets? If this cross eyed goofy bastard was doing sonar dont they look at a scope of some kind?

      Lastly, are high speed shades authorized while bubbleheads are submerged?

      I never liked burning shitters, but at least my boots were on the ground and I could see the sky.

      • AW1Ed says:

        “Do you have twidgets? If this cross eyed goofy bastard was doing sonar dont they look at a scope of some kind?”

        Various displays showing frequency, amplitude, and bearings, along with audio in the headsets. And this cross eyed goofy bastard would vapor lock if I asked him to recite the Passive Acoustic Figure of Merit equation, something burned into every Sonar Operator’s brain on week one at the school house.
        ‘Cause he was never there.

  23. Claw says:

    He’s from the Wind River Indian Reservation over in Wyoming.

    Dateline Nov 2, 2012, from The Ranger, Fremont County’s Daily Newspaper:

    Arland Moss, 51, of Fort Washakie, was arrested for Public Intoxication at about 10:30 PM Thursday in the 700 block of East Main Street.

    Not a DUI, so must have been a walking drunk. But, Hey, when you have 250 fake facebook page girlfriends, who needs a car? Fap-Fap-Fap !!

  24. AW1Ed says:

    Chief Walking Eagle.

    So full’a shit he can’t get off the ground, no matter how hard he flaps.

  25. AW1Ed says:

    And WTF is the burgundy ribbon with the four white stripes?

  26. Airdale (AW) USN says:

    I guess he’s proud of that Battle “E” ribbon and that Marine Good Conduct Medal, loser!!!

  27. 20thEB67 says:

    I noticed “Animal Poisoning” on his rap sheet. Used to be part of SEAL training. Gotta be on the level.
