James Gregory Fincher; phony hero

| November 18, 2016

James Gregory Fincher (4)

Someone sent us their work on this James Gregory Fincher fellow who had these photos of his wedding posted to his Facebook page until recently. Someone must’ve warned him we were coming;

James Gregory Fincher (1)

James Gregory Fincher (3)

As you can see in the photos, he claims a second award of a Combat Infantryman’s Badge, Senior Master Jump Wings, Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal 2 awards, and a Purple Heart. Each one qualifies him for prosecution under the provisions of the Stolen Valor Act. We’re told that he also claims to be a retired First Sergeant.

Well, according to the National Personnel Records Center, none of that is true. He was a Petroleum Supply Specialist in the National Guard and he deployed during Desert Storm. No valor awards, no jump wings, no time in the infantry. He did eight years in the National Guard and left as a specialist (E-4);

    The douche and anal nozzle tester appears to be wearing the Infantry blue cord.

    • Combat Historian says:

      Having actually earned the Infantry Blue Cord as an enlisted 11C Mortarman, I would dearly love to rip that fake blue cord off his tux and politely but tightly wrap it around his fat neck…

  2. IDC SARC says:

    Dayamm…go big or go home, I guess.


    • David says:

      you obviously looked at the arms on his bride… from the arms, she could have been in the supermarket scene in “Zombieland”. Regardless, she’s not going to be happy being married to a lying turd.

        Nice to know I’m actually communicating sometimes. 🙂

  4. AZtoVA says:

    You could tell he was a fake because who the hell wears that on a tux jacket?!?!??!

    Hope it was a rental and they made him pay for damages.

    • just some feller says:

      …who the hell wears that on a tux ….

      ONLY miniatures, and only after 6pm.

      And no Infantry Cord!


  5. Skyjumper says:

    I remember after completing Infantry AIT and being called “ground pounder”, “grunt”, “bullet catcher”, “boonie rat” (all of which I was/am very proud of to be called) and looked down on as some lowlife piece of shit.

    Until……..after a combat tour & you have your dress uniform on, then they question you as to why you have more (and higher ranked) pretty pieces of cloth than they do. Some actually got bent all out of shape over it.

    Yeah, no one wants to do Infantry shit, but only want the “bling” that sometimes go with it.

    And who in hell would wear all of that “chest candy” at their wedding anyhow? It’s your fucking wedding, not an in ranks inspection!

    I wonder if the groomsmen were decked out similarly?

    I need more coffee.

    • Wilcox says:

      well said.

    • Graybeard says:

      I know my 11B Iraq-vet son wore civvies without any military bling to his wedding.

      He also wound up with his MSG flying in early from a training just to be there – and lamenting that it wasn’t his own daughter marrying him.

      However, for both sons, their Best Men wore their uniforms – USNA for 1st, and USN for the 2nd.

    • Yef says:

      Err.. I got married in my class A, the old green one, back in the day.

      I hope I wasn’t a turd for doing that.

      • Graybeard says:

        As long as you were entitled to all the cake icing you wore, no you were not a turd.

        My 11B son is just one who does not like to draw attention to himself at any time. He even refuses to go to the “free food for Vets” events on Veteran’s Day. He does not like the attention.

        But he still jumps out of perfectly good airplanes from time to time.

    • Bill M says:

      Don’t know where I heard this, but…

      James Gregory Fincher is a liar.

      And James Gregory Fincher is a phony hero.

    I would love hear the vows.
    And read the prenup.

  8. Claw says:

    Gotta love the no magazine in the M16 picture.

    “Pump Monkeys Lead The Way !!”

    • Skyjumper says:

      He probably took off the blank adapter too, before the photo op.

    • Green Thumb says:

      More like “Pump Phil Monkress”.

    • Andy11M says:

      Pump Monkeys? I thought they were Gas Huffers?

      • Claw says:

        Yes, Pump Monkeys. At least that’s what they were lovingly known as in the Support Platoon of a Mechanized Infantry Battalion. (1/12, 1/15, etc.)

        Even the Platoon Sergeant referred to them in that way. As in, “OK, me and the Pump Monkeys will be at the Lager Site by 1630. Be there or be square.”

        • Graybeard says:

          One of my first jobs as a teen was as a pump monkey aka “gas jockey”.

          The self-serve stations killed off those jobs for teenagers, though.

        • Claw says:

          Whoops. There I go again, mis-typing words.

          That should be Laager Site, not Lager Site.

          Although I guess it would be possible to have Lager Beer at a fuels pumping Laager Site.

          Sometimes it’s tough working from a CRS riddled brain.

  9. MSGT_RET says:

    Even most posers know that you don’t wear ribbons on a tuxedo, earned or otherwise. Of course purchasing miniature medals for shit you didn’t earn is a bit more expensive. The shoulder cord is also a nice touch.

    • just some feller says:

      Ribbons, no; miniature medals, yes [if earned].

      Section 30-6 Wear of medals on civilian clothes

      Gender Specific: Both

      Retired personnel and former members of the Army (as described above) may wear all categories of medals described in this regulation on appropriate civilian clothing. This includes clothes designed for veteran and patriotic organizations on Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and Armed Forces Day, as well as at formal occasions of ceremony and social functions of a military nature. Personnel may wear either full-size or miniature medals. Personnel who wear medals on civilian clothes should place the medals on the clothing in approximately the same location and in the same manner as for the Army uniform, so they look similar to medals worn on the Army uniform.


    • rgr769 says:

      What is that ribbon he has displayed with precedence over and above the Silver
      Star? It better be a DSC, or it is obvious he never wore those ribbons on a real uniform. Also, if he was a combat pump jockey with a Silver Star, he should be sporting the CAB. And really, a SP4 who was a master blaster with a 2nd CIB. I think that blue cord is really the rope of stupid in his case.

  10. Roh-Dog says:

    I, for one, love to wear my CIB at times I deem appropriate; ceremonies, memorials, funerals, etc. Often I find myself wearing it at inappropriate times too, the strippers love the shiny wreath contrasting with that blue.
    But I fucking EARNED the right unlike this FPOS, James Gregory Fincher likes to embellish there by attempting to cheapen the honor of my Infantry Brothers.
    You’re a dick Jimmy, a flaccid, veiny, cancer-ridden, inverted cock.

    • Ret_25X says:

      For those who have earned their CIB you are forever my brother and I toast your success and health!

      For posers like James Gregory Finch, I revel in the fact that he feels so weak he must steal honor from us.

    • Green Thumb says:

      I wear a lapel pin on occasion.

      That’s it.

      Not the full-size one on my WEDDING TUX!.

      This dude is a loooooossssseeeer.

      • Skyjumper says:

        The only pin I wear on a civies jacket (and that I am most proud of) is the “U.S Army Retired” pin.

        Enlisted for three, did three bursts of six years and it was when I was in year 17 that I said “Holy Shit, I can retire in 4 more years”!

        Never gave a thought of staying in for 20 prior to that point. I was too busy “playing with the boys and their toys”.

        Met some great people during that time, of which a number have become very good friends to this day.

        • AW1Ed says:

          I have an old boonie hat with miniature Aircrew wings and my First Class crow on it, and I wear it when appropriate. Fishing is appropriate.

    • just some feller says:

      My CIB has a “blank adapter” on it, so it’s called an EIB.

      he he he.

      Granfather [WW2] and father [RVN] wear the CIB; I wear the EIB [Ft. Benning].

      I am so envious of all you CIBers!


      • Graybeard says:

        I’m holding my father’s CIB just in case my son earns it. As soon as possible thereafter, I want to pin his grandfather’s CIB on him.

        • just some feller says:


          That is just too cool!

          My nephew enlisted into the USAF so he never had the chance to get Father’s CIB. And although nephew deployed, I don’t think he ever came under fire.


  11. Dave Hardin says:

    I would do anything to be at the buffet when sack of shit regurgitates his tales of daring do to the heifer.

    I can imagine the pile of bones as he gnaws through pounds of chicken wings, sauce splattered all over his jowls while he pontificates his bloveated rendering of where those medals came from.

    Little Jimmy Fincher’s ego has festered into a puss filled boil on the ass of anyone with honorable service.

    This pig eyed piece of shit can suck the snotty end of fuck stick.

  12. sapper3307 says:

    That looks like combat jumps also. Fatty only has actual mustard stains on his shirt.

  13. 3E9 says:


  14. A Proud Infidel®­™ says:

    Bogus awards as well as a shoulder cord on a damned TUX? Hey you fatfaced meat gazer, where’s your beret to top it off, you meatgazing snot-spined pus-nuts no-load dildoheaded DINGLEBERRY?

  15. Carlton G. Long says:

    Now I’m truly embarrassed as I too, served as a Petrol Supply Spec (77F at the time but I think that has changed)…

    • Doc Savage says:

      No reason you should be embarrassed, Carlton….your career choice was honorable and critical; we couldn’t move without you.

      Don’t let this twunt cast a shadow over your fine work.

      • Carlton G. Long says:

        Thank you, sir. I just hate to think that this maggot raked the same front lawn of Ft Lee that I did…although I’m sure he would say that the leaf raking was just his cover and that he was really doing super seekrit squirrel stuff.

    • Graybeard says:

      Don’t be embarrassed by the honorable work you did, CGL. As Doc said – you keep the guys on the pointy-end supplied and able to do their jobs.

      You, your work, and your MOS is not impugned by some poser. Posers, like diarrhea, happen. Not your fault, and it does not make your contribution less.

      Rather – thank you for helping take care of those on the front. You done good.

    • Joseph Williams says:

      Carlton,my helo would have never got off the pad without one of gas jockeys there to fill my helo up. Then some grunts would hurting for air delivery of utes,boots,beans,bullets, Med-Evac etc. Joe

    • Ret_25X says:

      Bottom line…everyone talks a lot of smack about the other MOS types, but units cannot operate without everyone doing their thing with excellence.

      The Army is a team, it lives, eats, and fights as a team. I think someone famous said that…LOL

      I know that my old M2A1 went nowhere without fuel, killed nothing without ammo, and supported no Infantrymen without supplies and commo…

  16. Green Thumb says:

    “Everybody wants to be infantry until it’s time to do infantry stuff.”

    That what I always say and everyone always get mad at me!

    Anyway, another low speed, high dragg piece of shit.

    At least in the NG, he could have done a three week course and became Infantry.


    • Sparks says:

      Word. They all want the CIB but they don’t want to do the combat infantry to earn it.

      Shit sack!

    • rgr769 says:

      Yeah, combat infantry looks cool to a lot of people, but if they are confronted with the fact that they have to ruckup and someone hands them an M60 or GPMG and says, “we only have to hump 14 klicks to the firebase, because there are no birds flying today,” its not so cool.

  17. Cacti35 says:

    YGTBSM, is he actually wearing a blue cord on his right shoulder?

  18. SGT Ted says:

    The dumbest people I have ever encountered in the US Army were “petroleum specialists”; IOW, gas station attendants.

  19. Skyjumper says:

    Yeah, Cacti, he is wearing the infantry cord. (sigh)

    He probably unraveled it later in the boudoir and had had his new wife tie him up with it and insert unspeakable items up his ass. You know, grunts like that sort of thing. 😉

  20. TankBoy says:

    So I’m hoping someone has seen fit to forward these on to the local district attorney’s office? This butterball looks like he could rock the shit out of some orange coveralls. He also looks like he would benefit from a Sherriff Arpaio sanctioned diet plan.

  21. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Congrats, JAMES GREGORY FINCHER… Goggle and the interwebs know all about you now, you felching assclown.

  22. Chip says:

    I don’t see why people want recognized. Two months ago I wore my new 18th Airborne Corps hat out with my AA wings, unit and division insignias and it was horrible. I had guys asking me questions. A few people gave me the poser test which I past but it’s the fact it happened. I can’t even be proud of my service because of guys like this. I have not worn my hat since and last week I did not wear anything that would identify me as a vet on veteran’s day.

    • Graybeard says:

      Yeah, it’s sad when I cannot see someone earing military gear without wondering “are you really?”

      Hope you can feel proud of your service anyway, Chip. Just ’cause folks have to double-check because of jerks like this is no reason to be ashamed of what you are and what you do.

  23. Dolch Mann says:

    anyone trying to contact his bride yet? That will kick start a fire under his xxxl ass!

  24. Retired Master says:

    Was a fuel specialist in the AF and very proud. Without us, the birds were’t flying.

    • Skyjumper says:

      Retired Master,

      Like Doc Savage, Greybeard and others said before, your job was very important to the mission in keeping the wings flying, tracks & tires turning, and the boats moving.

      Without “youse guys” (yeah, I’m from “Up-Nort Wisconsin) all of those things would just have been on static display.

  25. Skyjumper says:

    Looks like that ole Jimmy was tryng to out “bling” the minister what with him rockin’ the Silver Cross and the over the neck thingy.


  26. Just An Old Dog says:

    When I was out looking for loose chicks the only thing I wore from my uniform was a single USMC issued “boot band”.
    They make awesome cock rings.

  27. Old 1SG, US Army (retired) says:

    What a dirt bag! He’s not authorized any of that stuff and if he was what part of “medal” doesn’t he understand.

    Nice touch with the Infantry cord…

    Someone needs to enlighten his dependopotamus…

  28. OldManchu says:

    This asshole. What an insult to all the fuel supply guys and gals who served in desert storm.

  29. I kinda like this James Gregory Fincher guy. Like me, he lies about his service. Also like me, he’s got a purdy mouth and losse stool.

  30. Kevin says:

    He should have been proud of what he did earn and his service, shame.

  31. lily says:

    I was in the 101st airborne and was reassigned to the 2/327th Infantry Regiment for a deployment to Kosovo in year 2000. My MOS was 14S/Avenger Crewmember. 3/4 of the time my platoon was given a sector of the city of Vitina to enforce martial law. We did the exact same work as the rest of the infantry. The other 1/4 of my time was either spent at Camp Bondsteel manning the Avenger at the perimeter or on the FOB working with a 13F in the talk. I know people have earned a CIB/CAB for doing a lot less than I did. But I wasn’t given one since I was in Kosovo in year 2000. I could care less.

    Posers like Fincher seriously make me sick. He probably had those medals and badges on his chest because he was afraid of what his wife would find out was under his pants on the honeymoon.

    If he had been forced to serve with the 327th infantry like me he probably would have a lot more respect for the badge. I know before I left the military I did a 25 mile march up and down hills in the middle of the night with the 2/327. After the march they had to do MOUT training. That duty let me know the military wasn’t going to be a career for me. There was no way my body could handle years of that shit. I don’t care how strong a person thinks they are. 25 miles of marching with over 100lbs of gear will tear down anyone. I saw multiple soldiers taken out of the woods by helicopter due to injuries.

    Fincher if you read this take that badge off and show some respect. The CIB was meant for those who don’t get enough respect for their service.

  32. jarhead says:

    Jimmy Boi….those nice arms on your new bride assure me she is going to be on NWA tomorrow night. Probably wear your medals during the main match. Mrs Zero Hero. Bet you’re thinking about pimping her out. Poor gullible lady.
    I wanna see her tits.
