John Turek; phony wounded Air Force PJ

| July 6, 2016


The folks at Military Phony send us their work on this fellow, John L Turek. John claims to be an Air Force pararescueman and that he was “wounded” while he was in Basic Training where he also caught the PTSD;

John Turek claims


It’s good that he limited his service to discussions about basic training, because he that’s all the time he spent in the Air Force;


His one month of service also included those two weeks that the military is essentially “off duty” over Christmas and New Year Day – so his service was actually less than a month.

    I assume that he was serving as a target. Money was tight back then and if a plastic target was unusable, the call went out for volunteers. Helluva man. Volunteered 16 times but was only hit twice.

  2. ChipNASA says:

    Fuck You ELS loser. You didn’t even make it to the high rank of Airman Basement.
    /SMSgt says YOU SUCK.

  3. 26Limabeans says:

    My dad was a B-17 crewmember. He once told me about a training accident where a Browning .50 came off the mount and sent rounds down the firing line killing two guys.
    Fuck this phony POS. And somebody please rescue that poor dog from him.

    • Hondo says:

      I noticed the dog too. Wonder if he conned some charity into providing him a “service dog” on the grounds that it would “help with his PTSD”.

      Lying bastard.

      • Manda says:

        He got the “service dog” tags from Just pay $75 and you too can have your own “service dog”!

        • Hondo says:

          Hmm. Looks to me like he simply paid for a prop to bolster his story. Figures.

          Hell, he could have gone to the local animal shelter and adopted one cheaper. Serves the apparent scammer right – looks like he got scammed, too.

  4. Doc Savage says:

    I knew those USAF dessert lines in the chow hall could be brutal…..but getting wounded over a honey bun?

    • ChipNASA says:

      I’d stab a motherfkcker in the Chow Hall line for reaching over me for a Got Damn Honey Bun.

      • HMC Ret says:

        As a Son of the South, you don’t mess with my Honey Buns, Moon Pies or RC Cola. This guy almost uses those exact infamous words: I caught the PTSD. Not exactly, but close. Wounded twice in Basic. That’s a classic.

  5. Hayabusa says:

    Nice to see the PJs getting some love from the poseur community. They must be tired of SF, SEALs, Force Recon, etc., getting all the stolen valor attention.

  6. A Proud Infidel says:

    That toad snot-headed twinkle-toed unicorn-lusting meat-gazing Sparkle pony of a Swamp Donkey has less time in service than Giduck!

    • A Proud Infidel says:

      WOUNDED in Basic Training? GIMME A mudda-fuckin’ break!

      • Green Thumb says:

        His two-hole was probably penetrated. My best guess is that he got hurt trying to sneak away.

        I think it would be awesome =to shove a giant Phildo right down his open suck.

        I imagine it would not be the first time.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

        Dude broke his taint in Basic… that is how he got himself the PTSD and the dog.

        He looks like a peter fluffer off a gay porn set…

      • IDC SARC says:

        you’re a total POS when the fragging starts in basic, eh?!?

    • Wilcox says:

      “Sparkle pony”? That’s a new one. Mind if I use it?

  7. Skippy says:

    Another 2 week warrior…
    moron !!!!!

  8. Dave Hardin says:

    Green Dust Disorder? Hey, I was exposed to all kinds of green dust. Brown dust, red dust, even see some white dust now and then. Every day I discover another reason I am so fucked up.

    This guy is an opportunist and professional victim.

    We had a name for people like him back in the day…it slips my mind…um…

  9. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Wow, I thought the AF basic was easier than high school jv tennis practice…he managed to get shot twice and get PTSD?

    I never realized that a month at AF basic over the winter holiday season would be harder than infantry school…maybe I should have chosen the AF instead of Army 11B.

  10. couldn’t even hack BMTS….and then claims he was a PJ….the guys delusional….probably would’ve cried like a baby, if he had a flightline AFSC,….working aircraft in rain, sleet, snow from tropical, desert to Arctic and all conditions in between and mostly at night…He’s in 1 month at xmas time,the easiest time to go thru BMTS I would think and then says to the world he is wounded in BMTS no less, what did he do slam his pecker too hard and break it and it became perpetually limp, or was it a failure to participate in all the activities to USAF standards that is BMTS ?

    • Claw says:

      “slam his pecker too hard and break it”

      Naw, it was the immediate bed wetting mode he went into upon discovering there was not a soft serve ice cream machine in his private dorm room like his recruiter promised.

  11. Usafvet509 says:

    I sent him a friendly message on FB. Think he’ll come here and go all DRC, or run?

  12. Combat Historian says:

    Good grief, another basic training washout loser…and claiming to be a PJ wounded in basic, hehe…

  13. lily says:

    He could try to join the Marines since Obama has got the generals to change the PT test. He might make it if he just gets some transgender people to enlist with him.

  14. ex-OS2 says:


  15. HMC Ret says:

    Twice wounded in boot camp? Maybe he fell from the top rack. Twice. Or maybe a blanket party. Twice.
    Someone above references bedwetting. We actually had a guy in Navy boot camp who was a washout (see what I did there?) because he was a bedwetter. He swore he never had a problem prior to enlistment, and that it was caused by stress. The CCs actually tried to work with him. They got him some sort of plastic barrier and gave him a few weeks to get squared away, but he still peed almost every night. Guys in the bay who woke during the night would wake him and get him to the head. Yeah, he peed in the head when woken, but then peed the bed, also. He was really a good guy and we tried to help him, but to no avail. He was discharged after, oh, 3-4 weeks.
    Also had two guys swapping spit the first week in boot. This was 68 so they were gone in a flash. Maybe today they would have a meritorious mast and promotion. /sarc about the mast. True about the story.

    • Bobo says:

      Actually, Chief, trying to read the scrambled English, it looks like he was “wounded” once in bootcamp on 6 Dec 1989 and then again on 11 Sep 2001. I can’t figure out which “wounding” produced the self diagnosed PTSD, though.

      • GDContractor says:

        Maybe in boot camp they gave him a military grade AR-15 to shoot, once. [GASP]

  16. Dave Hardin says:

    When gutless scum like John Turek try to claim the valor of men like this:

    We will not sit quietly and do nothing.

  18. The Stranger says:

    What a Magnificent Fellow!!

  19. USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

    He caught the PTSD on 9/11?

    From what? Watching the events unfold on CNN? (or is he claiming he was at “Ground Zero” that day?)

  20. Hack Stone says:

    Does getting the flu mist shot up your nose count as being wounded in basic training?

  21. OldManchu says:

    I got wounded at NTC in 1990.

    Jody got my girl while I was there and when I got her cowardly letter it “hurt my feelings” that she waited until I was in the field to dump me.

    Does that qualify?

  22. Thunderstixx says:

    We had a short red headed kid in AIT at Ft Polk named Whitt.
    I still remember him saying that he wanted to go home to Momma…
    He’s probably gotten a 100% classification and making about $4K a month…
    I am sure that he had some sort of something going on back then…
    After he left, he was the good bad example for the rest of us. Anybody that screwed the pooch was thereafter known as Stupid Whitt…

  23. Green Thumb says:

    I am a little slow, I get this.

    But how and why is he claiming PJ but yet washed basic?

    I get posers. But this is just weak.

  24. Dustoff says:

    I had a buddy in Korea that got his heart wounded and caught an STD in Itaewon….is that the same?

  25. Just An Old Dog says:

    Apparently this cocksmoker is trying to say his asshattery isn’t stolen valor because the courts said its not against the law to do what he did and he hasnt been charged by the legal system.
    Fuck you Turek. You are a lying scumbucket. I hope your “service-dog” realizes what a fuck-stain you are and rips your balls off.

  26. carl adams says:

    This waste product has told so many lies and they are all catching up with him. He has “got” PTSD 4 times…seeing a friend shot, dog almost dying, 911 and from a “shop” accident. He also claims to have been an underwater welder here in panama city, florida working for the military, retired USAF, retired Firefighter, dog breeder, owner of a “huge” company in Florida (where he has not even become a resident)….so much bull,,,,,so little truth…one sorry sack of dog manure.

  27. Thankful to know says:

    He is back in, a caretaker of a 25 yr old disabled girl. Thank you Carl for posting about what a disgusting person he is. I made sure that her parents know, but he may have already brainwashed them. Wrote him a note letting him know I know all about him and will be watching his every move. What a piece of sh#+!!
