Kelly Clay Withers; phony Army Captain

| September 5, 2016

Kelly Withers

Someone sent us their work on this Kelly Clay Withers fellow. He was on the old POW Network website, but I guess that he figures now that it’s gone, he can go back to pretending that he’s an Army captain in a “very unique team, highly classified.” He claims that he was wounded in Somalia, that he was the sole survivor of a helicopter crash in Iraq during the war against terror.

He was indeed in the Army – he began his service as 77F petroleum supply specialist;

Wither DD214 96

It looks like he deployed to Desert Storm, he completed the Air Assault course, and did a rotation in the Sinai with the Multinational Force and Observers.

He did pretty well at that, but then he went into the Reserves and trained as an MP;

He got promoted to Staff Sergeant, until this happened;

According to folks, he was in Iraq as a contracted firefighter with Wackenhut- but he tells people he was a contracted sniper. Currently, he tries to stay ahead of the law and the ladies that he left behind. He turns up at the local motorcycle events on his motorcycle with disabled veteran plates and his tough-guy motorcyclist nick-name “Reaper” recounting tales of his derring-do as a Delta Force operator, you know, even though his last successful military job was as a petroleum specialist in the pay grade of E-4;

    He got purty cheeks, bet they been stretched out.

  2. Dave Hardin says:

    Another steely eyed killer living with the horrors of military service.

    Wither away Kelly Clay nobody believes your nonsense. Another goofy bastard that bellows his bullshit and stumbles around like a buffoon.


  3. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    All the way up to SSG and he left as an E4, I wonder whose poodle he poked in order to get that? Another lying-assed moldy roach turd of a pus-nutted no-load dingleberry.

  4. Willy Pete says:

    It looks like he had seven years active duty, but got out as an E4. I thought that by the end of two years you pretty much automatically reached E4. So he went another five years without getting to E5. All my service was in the National Guard, so maybe some of you active duty soldiers can correct me if I’m wrong, but that seems to me to be an awful long time to spend as an E4. He did attend PLDC, so was promotable. Did he maybe piss somebody off at his unit and that’s why he never reached E5 on active duty?

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Gee, the cowboy hat instead of the ‘vet’ baseball cap really does the trick, doesn’t it?

    • Bernie Hackett says:

      Alright, I’m corn-fused. Made it to E6, got busted to E-5, and retired(?) as an E4? Downwardly mobile? Different ranks per unit TO&Es in the NG?
      Sounds like a fairly spectacular fall from grace, but what do I know?
      Then he follows all that up with his fairy tale about being an ossifer and sekrut squirrel.

  6. Cpl/Major Mike says:

    Guess I missed something somewhere, is there something wrong with a veteran wearing a cap that says he is a veteran?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      It’s the phonies, not the vets, who do the most embellishing, and that includes the baseball caps.

      Sorry if I was not clear about that.

  7. Claw says:

    The picture of him in the cowboy hat just screams “Jerry Foster lookalike” to me.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

      I wonder if he knows about the “disappearing cock trick” like Jerry Foster?

      KELLY CLAY WITHERS is going to ‘hook up’ with a woman some time, some place, and she’s going to go “Fatal Attraction/Lorena Bobbit” on his ass

      • Nicky South Africa says:

        You are right…I gut told me he is not real but was seeking for the truth…thanks to your government for assisting me with the truth.
        He fooled so many but the truth will prevail.
        He is a disgrace for the defense force.

    • Green Thumb says:


      Dude looks all pedophilish and shit.

      I would recommend he be kept away from kids.

      “Reaper”, huh?

      I be this ass-crack maggot has “reaped” some two-holes and old lady disability checks.

      Holy shit batman, it is Jerry Fosters brother!

  8. NR Pax says:

    Love the Private Pyle expression in the first picture.

    • jarhead says:

      Same here…in this case, it’s the Gomer Pyle (of shit) look. The picture of he and the older folks (like a bunch of us) is interesting in the fact that he’s the only one smiling. Could it be the look of Botox?

  9. lily says:

    Looks like he’s a wannabe “Screaming Eagle” too. His motorcycle has those 101st patches on it. Did he serve in the 101st?

    • Claw says:

      Not defending him, but it doesn’t look like he’s a wannabe Screaming Eagle. I’m betting until he PCS’d away from Campbell he was a Double Eagle. (wore the same patch on both sleeves)

      MOS orders published with a 101/Ft. Campbell header line (1989), attended Air Assault School and was awarded an Air Assault Badge (1989) and his oldest known addresses from the Psycho Dating page list Clarksville, TN and FTCKY. So it’s a pretty fair bet he spent a couple of years in the 101st.

      I would venture to guess he was a FARP (Forward Area Refueling Point) doggie (also known as Hose Hogs) during Desert Shield/Storm with the 101st, so I have no problem with him having Screaming Eagle mud flaps on his putter.

      However, big problem with him claiming to be a Captain and all secret squirrel and shit.

      • Nicky South Africa says:

        Maybe you could do some checking on the 101 and see if its actually true.
        He claimed to have been part of the French foreign legion…
        Give us some feedback on how legitimate he is

    We don’t fall far from the tree do we

  11. 2banana says:

    Just a FYI.

    I have seen quite a few people take a voluntary reduction in rank to get into a unit or get some school they have always wanted.

    Sometimes it is not a bad thing.

  12. MrBill says:

    He was reduced in rank for failure to meet conditional promotion NCOES requirements. In other words, he was promoted to SSG on the condition that he meet certain educational requirements, and he didn’t do it (either didn’t finish or flunked out). That’s per the version of AR 140-158 that was in effect at the time those orders were cut. I’ll leave a link here because I had a little trouble finding the correct version –

  13. mr. sharkman says:

    This is maybe what burns me the most about the SOF phonies – they get to rock the ultra-cool high-speed badass killerman nicknames.

    Completely f*cking unfair, because no real nickname is ever that cool. Because nicknames come from your Bros, usually after a colossal F-up or some glorious act of stupidity.

    If The Ladies knew what the closest thing to a nickname that I was ever given was, and the story behind how I got it, I would not get any action for the next 5 decades or so unless she was for hire, and then I’d have to pay triple.

    ‘Reaper’. Must be nice. 🙂

    • Fastjack says:

      Well, I got mine through smoke pit shenanigans. I underestimated how cold Virginia gets by the end of winter, given I’m from a part of Texas that only freezes over once every like, 20 years, so here I am in a long ass black trenchcoat to try and stay warm while getting to somewhere I could smoke… Everyone was calling me Morpheus for give or take three years.

    • Misfit says:

      He claimed that the name reaper was given to him when he was working as under a under cover operative for the FBI…
      He now goes under the name ” Dust off” apparent call sign he had whilst serving with 101st.
      He apparently started a MC R.A.W in Texas…

    • SFC D says:

      One of the most important things in “man law” is that you don’t get to pick your own nickname. It has to be earned. Usually through an incident involving alcohol, women of questionable virtue, excessive amounts of testosterone, and the dreaded “triple-dog dare”. This is written in stone and must not be violated.

  14. JimV says:

    He looks mental. ?

  15. Nicky South Africa says:

    I fell for him but thru all the lies and bs I managed to get to the truth.
    He is blackmailing and threatening me at this point because I received the truth… Full service report. Expose him for who he truly is. He is a fraud and scammer

  16. Sparks says:

    Should be “The Reamer”, “Two Hole Reamer” that is.

  17. Island of Misfit Toys says:

    I recall from basic the 77F people in basic were about as bright as a smoke house at midnight (then I met the 96R folks) and he seems to be fitting the mold perfectly. Sadly he is not the jackass from my PLT that marched with his Kevlar on backwards for 3 miles. There is nothing like an early morning road march and in the dark hearing the DI stroke out yelling at someone for being so dumb.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      These actually happened:

      (Dancing trainee, looking panicked)…. (DS grabs it by the arms and shakes it)

      “No! Dumbass! ‘Get down!’ Means do pushups!”

      (Different trainee, panicky, later: Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!) (DS grabs it by the arms and shakes it)

      “NO!!!! DUMBASS!!! ‘Beat your face’ means DO PUSHUPS!!!”

      Kid was genuinely smacking himself, leaving welts.

  18. LTC H says:

    I was his commander in 2002. Told a lot of stories. Been onto him for a long time. I have real friends who were in Somalia and wounded. Contacted me today claiming to be contracting overseas. Guy obviously has some problems. Maybe I should send him a link since he claims to be hunting a DD214. Hopefully he stays in the rear view mirror.
