Gary Robert Lefebvre meets Don Shipley

| May 22, 2016

Gary Robert Lefebvre

The Keene, New Hampshire Sentinel reports on the day last January when Don Shipley visited their local VFW Post to visit with Gary Robert Lefebvre. You can watch the video is you have a subscription. Lefebvre had been going the secret squirrel SEAL route with a forged DD214 and a forged letter from a General that warned the VFW Post 799 membership from checking into his background because his DD214 was marked “Top Secret Category 6” along with his secret Navy Cross;

Lefebvre’s service record gives no indication he was ever a SEAL. The log makes no mention of his being in Grenada, but says he was in Italy in 1983.

Lefebvre said to Shipley that, to his knowledge, his records were sealed and classified.

Shipley said in his interview with The Sentinel that he can verify if someone was a Navy SEAL quickly through the Naval Special Warfare Archives, which is a database of everyone who ever completed SEAL training.

A common misconception that fake SEALs tell people is that their military status is classified, according to Shipley. But like voting records and other public documents, SEAL status is a public record, he said.

Davis sums it up in the video during his drive with Shipley to New Hampshire.

“What we have to explain to these people, there’s nothing secret about us,” he said. “Some of our ops are, but there’s no secret training, there’s no secret nothing. … The only thing that’s classified is some of the things we’ve done — but we’re not.”

In addition to checking the SEAL database, Shipley requested a copy of Lefebvre’s service record from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis.

Like Shipley, The Sentinel asked for Lefebvre’s record from the center, and received a copy close to three months after the initial request.

Lefebvre’s file shows he served in the Navy, but not as a SEAL. He was an aviation boatswain’s mate (handling) 1st class and spent the majority of his service in Italy. The date he enlisted is recorded as Dec. 30, 1976.

The video ends with Don yanking the stickers and the SEAL paraphernalia off his car. You know, the secret squirrel BS doesn’t extend to bumper stickers, I guess.

The solution, for Lefebvre, of course, involves lawyers;

Months after being confronted by Shipley, Lefebvre maintained he served as a Navy SEAL.

“My wife and children, immediate family and those closest to me know the truthfulness of my naval service,” he said in a phone message for The Sentinel. “The video was a well-orchestrated thing to accomplish a certain goal. They had no interest in finding out the truth or hearing anything.”

He said in the message that his attorney was working on filing criminal charges and lawsuits against Shipley and the VFW post in Keene and he wouldn’t answer any questions about what happened in the video.

“My attorney has advised me just let it play out,” Lefebvre said. “We know what we have for information and what we’re gonna work with. Then, when it’s all said and done, I will be vindicated.”

    • HMC Ret says:

      Yes you are, until the end of time. Congrats, dufus.

    • Skippy says:

      That he is
      No more ??
      Now he is Google famous

    • Thunderstixx says:

      Yep, he won the internet dumbass of the week for his typical horseshit excuses…
      Now, if we can just get Darwin on the boat with him we’ll all be a lot better off !!!

    • Jarhead says:

      Judge, Jury, and the Exececutioncocksuckerist. Said and done this 22nd day of May, 2016. Method of execution: Eighteeen inches of pure black NBA schlong forced-fed in ten seconds! One of the witnesses reportedly saw the end of the schlong exiting his ass before it was over.

      Only regret was the smile of pleasure on the face of the criminal as he passed.

  2. Skippy says:

    No more


  3. Sparks says:

    Yep, it’s all top secret…until you put the “I’M A HERO!” stickers on your rig I guess. Then, not so much. Attention whore shitbag and a dirty dick cocksucker. (Not to take away any thunder from ex-OS2’s assessment above.)

    • Poetrooper says:

      “My wife and children, immediate family and those closest to me know the truthfulness of my naval service,” he said in a phone message for The Sentinel.

      So I guess that means his wife and children, immediate family and those closest to him all had Top Secret “Category Six” security clearances, hmm?

      How else could they know the “truth” about him?

      Jeez, if reporters just knew the right questions to ask these dickwads!

      • nousdefions says:

        I’m cleared through Ridiculous. I’m authorized to keep Cat 6 in my doghouse.

      • Green Thumb says:

        Looks like he is going with the classic “hide behind my family defense”.

        That usually ends up with these clowns asserting that their kids are receiving threatening phone calls, etc. You know, because they are at fault.

        Shaming and embarrassing the family to cling to his lies.

        What a tool.

  4. royh says:

    Love it. He had a letter from a “General” telling the VFW post not to look into his classified background. You know, the classified background that no one would have known about anyway unless HE told them about it.

    Made up classified background = assified future. Good work, Lefebvre.

    • Club Manager says:

      You have to wonder about the creds of the rest at the VFW post if someone didn’t see through the general’s letter. Not taking anything from their military service but certainly someone in a position of authority would have taken it further.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

        CM – how many times have we seen this before? Post leadership not putting forth the effort to vet new members and then, when a “member” starts off with BS stories and they are caught, they go to ground, instead of stepping up and taking charge.

        Vetting members – it’s a subject that gets a lot of space here at TAH. Until the VSO’s at ALL levels of their organizations get onboard and implement a policy to vet all present and prospective members, people like Gary Robert Lefebvre are going to show up and get dimed out for their lies, and embarrass posts/organizations.

      • Just An Old Dog says:

        “You have to wonder about the creds of the rest at the VFW post if someone didn’t see through the general’s letter. Not taking anything from their military service but certainly someone in a position of authority would have taken it further.”

        It was the other members that saw through it and rousted him. Apparently Gary Robert Lefebvre had dained a position of authority where he was able to oust people who questioned him.
        They called in the big guns to confront him.
        In My opinion every Region of a VSO should have someone who keeps DD214s and does an independent review of those who people have questions about.

    • Just An Old Dog says:

      Actually I believe the letter was from an Admiral, one with a SW background as well. If Im not mistaken either CMC Davis or SC Shipley personaly knew the Admiral whose name he forged.
      Anyway even as they were completely embarassing him, taking away his keys to the VFW and driving him off he had that sullen, unapoligetic look of a wayfaring cock-monger who will never stop lying.
      He threw down the standard empty threat of a lawyer.
      Now hear this Gary Robert Lefebvre, of Keene, New Hampshire. All you did was double down on your stupidity.

      • Gary says:

        None of this happened the way your saying it did. 1- They did not take away the keys I still have them and are still allowed in the VFW and go there very often thank you very much. 2- No body “drove” me off I left on my own because I am a grown man and will not tolerate a bully jerk like Mr. Shitley. 3- The threat of a lawyer is not empty you shall see.

        • The Al says:

          Too bad your record is right up there for everyone to see, and look- no SEAL training… How odd! Why, it’s almost like you never attended BUD/s…. which would show on your record because there is no such thing as classified training.

        • Jonn Lilyea says:

          For some reason, Gary here, is using the same computer as Jeff Smythe and AAdams. So, just a guess here, but I think he’s a troll.

        • 3/17 Air Cav says:

          Gary……..maybe you are “allowed” in your VFW. I’d like to be a fly on the wall , if in fact you do go there and start telling your bullshit Seal stories! Face facts Gary, your nothing but a embellishing fraud. Those who do, do. Those that don’t, just talk. Your record speaks for itself. Your a talker not a do’er!

          My question is this. Why in the hell would you even want to go somewhere that your scorned and not wanted!

        • RM3(SS) says:

          “2- No body “drove” me off I left on my own because I am a grown man and will not tolerate a bully jerk like Mr. Shitley.”

          Translation: I’m a flaming vagina and had to hurry home to clean the shit out of my underwear.
          Fuck you Phoney SEAL Gary Robert Lefebvre.
          The only seal you made was your mouth around your boyfriends cock.

  5. B Woodman says:

    “Don’t get me angry. You won’t like me when I’m angry.”

    Don Shipley, pre Hulk.

  6. C2Show says:

    haha, I remember this one. Dude was in the bar for about a good hour with Mr. Davis talking about his wonderful adventures. They had that camera set up in a secret location or something. Then when they confronted him and Don started yelling, dude scrambled out of the bar and refused to tell his fellow post members about his career. Surprised he allowed Don to scrape off the stickers. He was acting like a real bitch at the end of the video.

    • Gary says:

      I’m not worried about the stickers I’d rather keep safe and away from that gorilla Dump Shitley and don’t worry I got new stickers so looks like the joke is on him.

      • HMC Ret says:

        The joke is on him? You stand by and get berated and your stickers removed from your vehicle, again as you stand by? All this in front of veterans? And the joke is on the SCPO Shipley? You’re special, aren’t you? Was your vehicle a little yellow school bus? Keep doubling down. You’re little more than a chew toy for those on this blog.

        • HMC Ret says:

          And I’m not believing you put new SEAL stickers on your little yellow school bus, dingus. You going to keep this up forever? Every post is another keepsake in the ‘google is forever’ world. Congrats …

  7. Andy11M says:

    The lawyerz? Oh noes! Yea, that will work out real well.

  8. Claw says:

    It would appear that Lefebvre has a defender (Sockpuppet?) on the Keene Sentinel article.

    A comment by “Brad Justice”(18 hours ago) that says “and just how does anyone know this clown is actually a seal himself?”

    The Facebook page that Brad Justice commented from looks as fake as a three dollar bill.

    • Claw says:

      First two Poser blocks checked off.

      Attorney/Lawsuit and Sockpuppet.

      You go Gary!!

    • Gary says:

      Haha that is incredible. I’d like to see proof that anyone who supports me is this “sockpuppet” thing you losers love to throw around on this site. Anyone who supports someone in your little thread automatically gets labled as a “sockpuppet” on here. That is just another game you play in your little libel world that will come crashing down when this site is shut down by a court order. Keep laughing you schmucks you will see who has the last laugh it will be me.

      • Jonn Lilyea says:

        How’s that trolling thing working for you? How are AAdams and Jeff Smythe doing? They’re right next to you, ask them.

        troll stuff

        • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

          Yep IP addresses are a bitch aren’t they…fucking moron.

            This guy is trolling a MILBlog from a US Government Computer? Somebody look up and call the base IT guru, it’s time for some administrative action!

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        They really think no one can track them except the FBI guys, don’t they?

        Okay, then!

      • Fjardeson says:

        IP addresses don’t lie. Gary=Sockpuppet. Are you drinking and posting again? Is spandex involved?

  9. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Gary Robert Lefebvre… another assclown running his piehole about being all “Sekrit Skwirrl” and shitting all over his service as an ABH.

    I’m guessing the only “sekrit skwirrl ops” buttmonkey was ever on involved booty banging, rump riding, taint tickling and sphincter sniffing… when he wasn’t sucking off The Barbed Cock of Satan.

    Gary Robert Lefebvre – phony SEAL, real deal assclown! Deal with the fame, BYTCH!

    • Airdale (AW) USN ret. says:

      Now he got to know that back when he was in they we’re letting Aviation rates be a Seal unless you cross rate to a shoe rate. Let him explain that!!

    • Guard Bum says:

      “Sucking on the barbed cock of satan”….damn Chief, with your permission I am going to have to add that to my reptoir!

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    What is that rule?

    Never go full – – – – – – -. Right????

    And yet, he did exactly that.

    (Shakes head.) They just do not learn, and likely never will.

  11. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Here’s something ironic… on the VFW post’s FB page, they have a Stolen Valor video posted on March 31st with Dan and Diane Shipley in it.

    What do you think about that, Gary Robert Lefebvre???

  12. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Got a lawer to go after Don?

    Newsflash, dickhead, no lawyer would touch any case of yours with a 10 foot pole, unless he was an about to be disbarred shitty pilot thumb sucking bedwetting fucktard lawyer, but what do I know?

    • that disbarred shitty pilot thumb sucking bed wetting, bicycle riding, gun packing, disability faking, ukulele playing, know it all, photoshoping fucktard lawyer would have to double down on stupidity. I believe he has violated his restraining order involving SC and Mrs. Shipley several times now and would wind up in the pokey if he showed up in the northeast…actually i hope he does take the case to him, only to see him dragged off in handcuffs. talk about a pay per view event!

      • Silentium Est Aureum says:

        Senior Chief may well have a case based on the newspaper comments alone.

        Bernath wishes he was Caitlin Jenner’s pool boy.

        • spd0302 says:

          Reading those comments at the newspaper article, time I can never get back, gave me some insight on genuine insanity.

            DuLlAsS (aka: QuEeFeRs; CoCkSlUuUuRrRrPtH41) must not have gone over this weekend to suck start Danni’s catheter…

      • Fjardeson says:

        A pay-per-view? How do I get a ticket?

  13. Flagwaver says:

    What does classified mean? I was an E-4 with a TS in my Battalion (I was supply with an INF unit and needed it because reasons). Because of my low rank and TS clearance, I was tapped as the postal monkey to hand-ferry documents between the deployed unit and rear det. I can talk about it now because the classification on the missions lasted only ten years. At the time, my family and friends thought I was going up to Ft. Lewis every month for about half a week for training. The only thing I can’t talk about is what happened during a single trip over. At least not until 2025 (it had a 20 year classification).

    That’s what classified means. I still have a DD-214, I can talk about my service, and I can tell the truth about what I was doing now that the classified status was lifted. I wasn’t a secret squirrel doing secret squirrel shit, I was a postal monkey because of my low height on the totem pole.

    Pardon my lack of knowledge about the actual nomenclature of the wording. As I said, I was just a supply puppy who became a supply daddy and then got out.

    • Mark Lauer says:

      My dad was in Air Force intelligence during the Korean War. He couldn’t tell anyone about what he did. Ever. So, he didn’t. But his 214 was in an unlocked file box on the floor of one of our closets, and my brother and I used to look at it. Dad never said; “I’m classified”, or pulled any of that; “It’s top secret, if I told you I’d have to kill you” bullshit.
      When people asked what he did in the Air Force, he’d say; “I sold orthopedic shoes to the Japanese”.


    You know this ass hole. He forged a letter from a SEAL ADM and should get charged for that and he used a recruiting photo of SEALs back in late 80’s and early 90’s. He claimed that one guy in the photo was him and it was Ken Stethem.

    This photo was famous and used for a long time in the Navy. The photo had Ken Stethem (Navy SEAL) brother of Robert Stethem who was Navy SeaBee SW2/DV diver killed on the TWA flight 847. The big thing with the photo was for Ken to honor his brother. Was in same unit as his other brother Pat and he to was a SeaBee diver also.

    This shit bag didn’t even know who Robert was and that a ship was named after him. If he had been a real SEAL, he would have known who this was and everyone in SEAL’s and SeaBees know about that family.

    Two Navy SeaBee diver brothers (UCT) and a Navy SEAL that is one hell of a family and this shit bag used Ken’s photo claiming it to be him. Shit Bag…

  15. Open Channel D says:

    Hey douche nugget, you keep using the word “vindicated.”

    It doesn’t mean what you think it means.

    The word you’re looking for is “lifelong walking humiliation for being a fat, slow-moving sack of shit, leaving a slug-like shitstain wherever you go.”

    That’s from the O.E.D, you can look it up.

    Gary Robert Lefebrve, Google Famous

  16. PFM says:

    At least he is wearing the correct color in that photo – now all we need to do is get a jumpsuit that fits him.

  17. Hack Stone says:

    Do you need to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement to read the bumper stickers on his vehicle?

    • spd0302 says:

      Now that cracked me up. Score a +10 for Hack Stone Publishing.

    • HMC Ret says:

      No. You’re not gonna get clearance under any circumstances. Neither am I. Those bumper stickers are Secret Squirrel Top Secret Drawer 6. He has an Admiral’s letter to prove it. Let’s move along. Nothing to see here.

  18. Combat Historian says:

    Good Lord, dipshit is doubling down on the secret squirrel stupid; good luck with that…

  19. Green Thumb says:

    Orange is a good color for this tool.

    He better get used to it.

  20. Just An Old Dog says:

    Paula Driver AKA Dan Bernath, the disgraced, Disbarred lawyer is bombing the comments as well.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Yeah, seeing that. Fucker just doesn’t know when to quit, does he?

      Dude is trolling, trying to get someone to react. What I don’t think he gets is that not everyone is going to show the same restraint Jonn, Don Shipley, and a lot of other people he’s tried to fuck with have shown thus far.

      It only takes one.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

      Watch out readers…Dickless Danni-boi is jerking himself off again. Teh stoopid coming out of that brain housing group is so fucking toxic, Fukushima and Chernobyl are clean compared to his mind.

      Still waiting on the disbarment letter from the CA State Bar, Danni-boi… don’t worry, scrotum face, it will be there real soon

  21. Duane says:

    As a former Unit Security Manager, I love the Top Secret Category 6. Hey – moron – a simple Google search would have told you what levels of actual clearances there are and have been for several years now, and Category 6 isn’t one of them! He’s a special prize, this one!!

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Hell, there aren’t but four levels in Classified Material, Confidential, Secret, Top Secret, and TS/SCI. Clearances are Confidential, Secret. and Top Secret/ TS/SCI. I love how posers and embellishers hang themselves with their bullshit, THE INTERNET IS FOREVER!

    Speaking for my mom, in her well known proper English, EAT SHIT AND DIE?

    Looks like Gary Robert Lefebvre is about to be enrolled in Salad Tossing 101.

  24. Paul Dragos says:

    I haven’t been on this site very long, and I keep seeing these references to this guy Bernath. So I googled him, and wow! What an ass! So I’m reading about him, and find out he was on the Kearsarge when I was. I have to dig out my cruise books from that period to see if I remember him. One thing I no stood out:’ the letter from the captain of the Yorktown. Now she was a CVS like the Kearsarge. We had Florida gut ops going all day – I was an AO2, who worked the flight deck- not a secret squirrel or anything like that, believe it or not. I don’t remember all these “combat mission” that were referenced. Maybe I missed something but……..

    • Hack Stone says:

      You must have been in the galley hrabbing a cup of coffee when all those missions that Bernath mentioned were occurring.

    • Propsguy says:

      1) Sorry, hit the wrong button ( It must be true about the eye being attracted to red)

      2) Anyway, I want to play too.

      We were sekrit squirrel , level 7, special convoy security in Iraq. Super stealthy, no one knows about it….

      Because 30 Flatbeds and 7 Guntrucks rolling down the highway with Un muffled Diesel engines and enough Lights on them to light up a Kiss COncert is super dooper sekrit.

      All of our records were sealed. They used to drop the Trucks out of C-130’s, at 30000 feet, with us riding in them.

      General Petreus wrote us all letters, if any of you try to look into our records, he’s gonna send his ex girlfreind to your house, and she’ll kill you with a pen.

      And she aint afraid of Don Shipley ( Mrs Shipley, maybe, but definitley not Don)

    They didn’t even make me a sekret skwirrel when they had me as a 9’th Infantry Division Ski Instructor…

    His atty, he says, told him to let it play out. That’s great advice. Excellent. If that’s true, the only lawsuit he’s likely to prevail in filing is the malpractice claim against his lawyer.

    • Miclo18d says:

      “He who represents himself, has a fool for a client”

      I think he has trouble distinguishing who he actually is, in more ways than one.
