Lyle Lookingbill; phony Beirut corpsman

| December 6, 2016


One of our ninjas saw this fellow, Lyle A. Lookingbill, try to join a group of Navy Petty Officers on Facebook. Some of his stories didn’t add up, so they came to us. He claimed to be a Navy corpsman at the Beirut bombing;

  1. USMC Steve says:

    I have never in my life heard a Corpsman refer to themselves as a “Navy medic”. And the Corps has NEVER had any 5th MEU. All MEU designations related to Lebanon were two digit unit designators, such as 24 MEU, 31 MEU, etc. Guy is an obvious fraud.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Navy medic? Good point.

      • AW1 Tim says:

        My father was a Corpsman. That term “Navy medic” jumped right out at me the instant I saw it.

        My father refers to himself, when speaking of his duty in WWII, as either Corpsman, or Pharmacists Mate, which was the original Rating. He never once, in my memory, used the term “Medic” which was a term used for Army field medical folks.

  2. USMC Steve says:

    Relative to your FOIA search, remember that we were in Lebanon the last time from 1981 to 1984. If this guy is claiming to have been there, you sent your FOIA search request to the wrong folks. I would go to the NPRC in St. Louis.

    Fuck you and the bag of shit you rode in on.

  5. Dapandico says:

    Sure he isn’t looking for dick.

  6. OAE CPO USN Ret says:

    He claims he was a Master Chief Corpsman.

    Screenshot? Why of course I took a screenshot. It’s a beautiful screenshot.

  7. Thunderstixx says:

    Another honorary CPO or some damn thing…’
    Great, just what the fuck we need…

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Another no-load pus-nuts booger-eating bedwetting thumbsucking pisspants DILDOHEAD spouting his BULLSHIT! An flasely claiming CPO Rank? I wonder if he isn’t the Dutch Rudder Gang’s newest “Prospect”? He not only looks like a meat gazer, he looks like the type that works wino ballsacks behind bus stops. HEY YOU toad booger-headed fart muffin of a Sparkle Pony, ENJOY your newfound fame fatface, THE INTERNET IS FOREVER!!!

    • OAE CPO USN Ret says:

      He’s the one giving the DRG their flight physicals.

      “It’s time for your weekly prostate exam”

      “Uh, Doc did you forget to take your ring off first”

      “Nope I took it off.”

      “Then what am I feeling scrape back there”

      “My wristwatch”

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        Assclown is the one snaking Danni-boi’s red rubber Robinson into his penis past the prostate and into his bladder, while QuEeFeRs is suck-starting it.

  9. MCPO NYC USN Ret. ain't goin' no where says:

    “Navy medic” … ah NO!

    Phony CPO with Chief’s Mess tee shirt … YES.

    • GDContractor says:

      Maybe Navy Medic is the designation they use in the Navy Special Forces. Seriously!

    Enjoy your Google fame

    This guy creeps me out.

  14. 68W58 says:

    When is there going to be another tournament?

    This guy is a total shitbag, but I did learn something in his relating the story of the Batfish (provided he wasn’t full of crap about that as well).

  15. Combat Historian says:

    As someone mentioned above, if you’re gonna pretend you were a veteran of Beirut, at least get the proper MEU designations correct; this “navy medic” isn’t even trying…

    • IDC SARC says:

      Woulda been a MAU back then anyway…24MAU was in the bombing, 22MAU went to Grenada and then relieved the 24MAU

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Yeah, but PLEASE don’t give these dopes any clues online, okay? The more they have to trip over their own feet, the better.

      • E-3 Nelson says:

        I stopped providing specifics a while back. Giving away Intel has never been a good strategy.

        Another disgusting fat body that gives Beirut Docs a bad name.
        Fuck him too…….

  16. Graybeard says:

    An here is my “WTH?” face.

    Why does he want to claim “Navy Medic”? What does that get him? Access to someone’s pants?

  17. Graybeard says:

    Here is the obligatory TAH-net broadcast:

    Lyle Lookingbill is not a medic.
    Lyle Lookingbill is not a corpsman.
    Lyle Lookingbill did not serve in Beirut.
    Lyle Lookingbill did not serve in the Navy.
    Lyle Lookingbill is a phony.
    Lyle Lookingbill is a liar.
    Lyle Lookingbill is a wannabe.
    Lyle Lookingbill is pathetic.
    Lyle Lookingbill is not behaving like an Orthodox Christian.
    Lyle Lookingbill is not behaving as a Christian.
    Lyle Lookingbill is behaving like a carnal “Christian.”
    Lyle Lookingbill is probably not even Armenian.
    Lyle Lookingbill is a fraud.
    Lyle Lookingbill is not part of the Muskogee War Memorial Park.
    Lyle Lookingbill is a blight on volunteers and servicemen everywhere.
    Mrs. Lyle Lookingbill, if one is so foolish as to exist, needs to whup Lyle Lookingbill into line ASAP.

    End of transmission.

  18. I wonder if ol’ Lyle Lookin fer Bill, and Silly Billy Blake sit around the local bar, tossin’ back some brews, and discuss the hell that they went through in the Beirut Barracks. They really don’t live that far apart, they could be “Best Friends” wink wink.

  19. OWB says:

    With the addition of this one, just how many do we now have claiming service in Beirut? Give or take 786,412 or thereabouts? Must have been a huge housing complex.

  20. Green Thumb says:

    Another Bill Blake wannabe.


  21. Bobo says:

    Lyle seems to have ended his relationship with Facebook.

  22. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    He’s claiming to be a Master Chief Corpsman AND Qualified in Submarines?

    Aw, shit, lemme get my popcorn out and start up his qual board! Wanna jump in on this one, Bobo?

    • ex-OS2 says:

      Who said popcorn?

    • IDC SARC says:

      In a REAL career that would be very possible. A young FMF Corpsman could if dedicated enough go on to become a Submarine IDC…you generally have to, as a Corpsman, be an E-5 with 2 years time in grade to go to Sub-IDC training (or any IDC pipeline).

      In my career I actually knew 2 Command Master chiefs in the FMF that were at one time Sub-IDCs. Back then, they wouldn’t be the COB, so they’d generally have to rotate off subs and go to another HM type of CMC billet.

      • RM3(SS) says:

        In my day (71-75) virtually ALL of the IDC on the boats were prior “green side” and had combat experience from Vietnam. Since they were the only medically trained person on a boat of over 100, it made sense to have someone with that background. The amount of responsibility they had was enormous. We operated in areas where there was NO way to get help if we had a casualty. Much respect for HM(SS) everywhere.

      • Silentium Est Aureum says:

        My first Doc was in fact a former FMF doc, and retired as a Senior Chief.

        I’m not saying there were no (SS) qual HMCMs, but there are damned few of them, and if you ever ran into one, you’d know it.

    • AW1Ed says:

      My Niece’s husband (nephew-in-law?) is a fresh HMC and in Rotten Grotten as I type, going though Sub-IDC school.

      We’ll have lots to talk about at reunions, as I was (an am) an Antisubmarine Warfare guy.

  23. Dave Hardin says:

    It appears Lyle Lookingbill has discovered the delete button. Thing is he has been posting this bullshit so long he will never find all the links.

    Here let me help the dumbass:

    He is not a member of any Beirut group, nobody seems to know who he is and he has been doing this for a long long time.

    Lying Lyle Lookingdumb can’t erase everything because its all been saved to places he can not touch.

    This guy is a fucking loser and probably always has been. A valor vulture who attempts to write himself into history because he lacked the balls to be part of making it.

  24. Keepin' It Real says:

    Lookingbill speak with forked tongue.

    Him have black heart and blue balls.

    Him real name is “Looking ill”, but bee crawled across deerskin birth certificate before it was smashed with back of hand.

    Him no chief. Him no brave, either. Him not even squaw.

    Him is Batfish crazy.

  25. I didn’t see Lying Lyle A. Lookingbill at gooogle. He needs more “name recognition”, for all the effort he has put in to be a phony “Navy Medic” in the Beirut Barracks Bombing. Every phony deserves his place at the top of the page in Goooooooooooogle.

  26. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL – deal with the GOOGLKE fame, assclown. You weren’t in the Navy, weren’t a Hospital Corpsman, didn’t serve in Beirut and DEFINITELY weren’t a honorary or initiated CPO.

    BUT, LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL is a confirmed STOLEN VALOR fraud and gerbil felcher, so he has that going for him…

  27. 1610desig says:

    I suspect as is typical of the breed, he plays at many other identities to garner sympathy or get attention. It was curious about his description of being a Maronite Christian and part-Armenian. Yes, both have been “persecuted” by Islamic governments/factions, however, generally speaking, Armenians have their own Christian sect quite distinctive from the Lebanese-centered Maronite version. I would have drilled down further on that if I had been part of that Facebook discussion. That would be a dry hole I imagine.

    • Daisy Cutter says:

      There are many ways to probe a dry hole.

    • The Stranger says:

      And as I recall, Maronite Christians are not “Orthodox” since they consider themselves Catholic and under the authority of the Pope. “Maronite” is the name of the Rite that they use, in contrast to the Latin Rite more familiar to European and American Catholics.

  28. 26Limabeans says:

    Knock, knock.
    Who’s there?
    It’s Lyle.
    Lyin Lyle?
    Wadda ya want?
    I’m looking for Bill.
    Bill’s not here.

  29. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Except for his girth, his height, his eye color, and the shape of his nose, mouth, chin, and ears, he’s the spittin’ image of me. I’m not kidding.

  30. Ken Lacey says:

    I am a HMCS (FMF) who just recently saw Mr. Lookingbill at the Jiffy Lube in Tulsa,OK. He approached me after seeng the anchor sticker on my car. He claimed to have been to Iraq and Afghanistan and to have got out in 2006. I know this dude has used his bullshit story for personal advantage, which, as I understand, is the definition of stolen valor. What sucks is that he gave me a nice discount on oil change that I probably will never get again. Damn fraud.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      It’s funny, if you look at the screen shot above, he states that he was the CMC onboard the USNS Mercy in 2008… guess LYLE LOOKINGBILL needs some Cliff’s Notes to keep his SV bullshit stories straight.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Huh, so LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL is a quick lube counter monkey? If LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL had really been a Retired USN CPO I’m sure he’d be able to get far better employment than that. LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL gets another Google Hit every time someone posts the name LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL here on this thread. Hey LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL, the internet is forever! I’m telling you right now LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL, that many have threatened to sue TAH and get a thread revoked or shut this sie down, but guess what, LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL? EVERY ONE of them HAS FAILED, Jonn and the TAH Top Echelon DO NOT remove a damn thing, LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL, YOU’RE FUCKED!!!

      LYLE A. LOOKINGBILL falsely claims USN CPO rank like a certain disbarred CA Attorney.

    • Tate says:

      LOL! Sorry Ken…
      I’ll ck your oil for you big boy!

  31. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    FLABBY looking walking bucket of lard, I bet he never met a jelly doughnut he didn’t like.

  32. Wilted Willy says:

    I hope this cocksucker chokes on his bag of dicks! You are a complete and utter failure you shitbag! I really hope you not only enjoy your google fame but also your recently found Naval fame as well you fat steaming assclown!

  33. OSC(SW) Retired says:

    Lyle had a good number of genuine Chiefs fooled. A couple years ago when the Museum he volunteered at found out he was a fraud and hired a real historian to run the place, he posted a series of rants on a closed CPO Facebook group. I thought it was pretty clear that no genuine would ever post like that so I called bullshit, only to get peppered with nasty PMs from other members. I let it go and just ignored him for a couple years. Sadly it turns out that Lyle had some local Chiefs so snowed that they made him a big part of their annual CPO initiation. Very unfortunate that a bunch of young CPOs out there have that taint now attached to a special event in their career.

    • D yeaps says:

      Yeah I remember I drove him to the the event as a select as instructed in Muskogee. He actually called me to have me vouch for him as a veteran to get a job at a grocery store I thought was odd being a retired master chief as he claimed. OSC retired I’m sure I do know you as well I was an nc selected in Tulsa 2013.

  34. Dan Goodman says:

    Just to add, he told the local SubVet Chapter at the Muskogee War Memorial Park that he didn’t qualify, but was given his dolphins because he was a spook on board several subs.

    His father actually has legitimate service, I wonder if he is aware that his son is a stolen valor case. Let’s ask!

  35. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Lyle commented in Facebook comments above.

    • OWB says:

      Well, well, well.

      My acceptance of an apology is always conditional:

      IF he stops lying and never lies about his service again, I will consider accepting his apology. IF he informs all those entities from which he accepted accolades of his lies, I will consider accepting his apology. IF he makes sure that any special consideration he is receiving or has ever received at work are removed, I will consider accepting his apology.

      Otherwise? No. Plus, I reserve the right to add other considerations to my list of demands.

  36. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “The fantasy was wrong but in that fantasy there was reality that served the greater good.” Oh, I get it. It’s like those good citizens who pretend to be police officers by putting a blue light in their car’s grille and pulling over traffic violators. Sure, it’s wrong but it serves some greater good. Anything can be rationalized, Lyle. You are a lying sack of shit. Now, go and lie no more and, if you like, do some good without the lies.

  37. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Fuck you Lyle. Apology not accepted.

    Not only did you disparage my brothers of the ‘phin, you show ZERO contrition in your half-assed “apology”.

    Try a little sincerity, then take a step back and fuck your own face.

  38. Ken Lacey says:

    Lyle, I was the legitimate HMCS (that means Corpsman Senior Chief for you civilians Lyle)who you fed your load of bullshit to at Jiffy Lube. If you wanted to truly make amends, you should feel obligated to return the vessel (this is a Chief thing, ask your daddy) and the shadowbox that were given to you after you told some song and dance about a fire. Incidentally, what the fuck do you put in a shadowbox if you have never spent any time in uniform? Another question, did you have to sanitize your house of Navy stuff like the above mentioned items before your daddy visited? Your apology was half assed at best but start doing the right thing TODAY! I can put you in touch with the Chiefs Mess (that is an area where only genuine Chiefs belong, again, ask your daddy)at NRD Dallas, who provided you the gifts. Just sack up and ask.
    Lastly, props to my brother Tate Jennings for sticking with it and exposing you before you continued to pollute the minds of future selectees.

  39. ex-OS2 says:

    Fuck you Lyle.


  40. Tim Houts says:

    Where do I start with this asshole….5th MEU? Navy Medic?…. It’s dip shits like you that turn my stomach! Thank God for Stolen Valor and those who do the hard work of exposing these crooks! Little ol Lyle wouldn’t amount to a zit on a real Corpsman’s ass… Especially those Corpsman who saved Marine lives in Beirut. I have only one thing to say to you lying Lyle….FUCK YOU!

  41. droooo says:

    Just wanted to thank you all for posting. Lyle flamed me on a friendly board and when I looked him up this was the first hit. I posted this link and in a minute he had deleted his post and his profile. Very cool Thank you


  42. Chief says:


    this fucking fraud is still at it. recently spotted giving a tour of the USS Batfish and still claiming to be HMMC (which is incorrect nomenclature for you non-navy types). apparently this thread needs to be revived and bumped back to the top

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Little bytch LYLE LOOKINGBILL still ROCKING THE LIE? Still felching gerbils and tickling taint’s behind the Quickie-Mart, LYLE?


    • Brent Trout says:

      When was he spotted? We caught him coming in on Sundays because that is my day off. I tried to tell my staff to look out for him or anyone else who looks like a walrus.

      My staff caught him gathering people in the parking lot and pretending they were his family before. Needless to say, this guy is a special kind of crazy.

      I cannot believe he is still trying to come around and give tours!

      • Chief says:

        I’ll have to go back through the plethora of posts. I’ll try to find a date for you and i’ll send you an email to your address.

  43. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Mission accomplished, Chief. It is live again.

  44. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Brent Trout, Park Manager, at the Muskogee War Memorial Museum;

    • Brent Trout says:


      Please contact me at instead of
      When was he spotted giving a tour of the USS Batfish? We have issued two cease and desist letters to him and he responded and acknowledged them both. I would love to turn this over to the city attorney!

      He’s also working at Snow’s Mattress in Tulsa and Owasso, feel free to let them know how you feel.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        Sounds like LYLE LOOKINGBILL and the City Attorney need to have a long, long talk… and there may be some “silver bracelets” involved.

  45. Green Thumb says:

    Lyle “Lookingturd” is more like it.

  46. Dan Goodman says:

    We still haven’t seen this piece of shit come back to the Muskogee War Memorial Park. All the volunteers, staff, and organization members have been on high alert.

    We did spot him at Snow’s Mattress in Tulsa. He rotates between locations. Apparently, the owner of Snow’s Mattress, Barry, told another volunteer that he doesn’t understand the big deal with stolen valor. He said that the amount of veterans who lie about their service is so high, what is the big deal about someone claiming to be something they’re not.

    Needless to say, Barry is a piece of shit.
    Here are some numbers:
    (918) 518-5622 – Snow’s Mattress Jenks
    (918) 794-0770 – Snow’s Mattress Tulsa
    (918) 609-6446 – Snow’s Mattress Owasso.

    We have spotted Lyle working at all of these as a floater. Everyone should give them a call and inform them that stolen valor is serious and that Lyle Lookingbill is a piece of shit.
