Bill Harney; phony Green Beret

| April 25, 2017

Our friends at Green Beret Posers Exposed share their work on this fellow Bill Harney who AverageNCO spotted in an Ocala Star-Banner article;

The Army doesn’t remember it like that;

He was a generator operator at Fort Sam Houston until he went to Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks as an inmate and then he was discharged as a private after 2 1/2 years of service (so to speak). He never went to Vietnam, he wasn’t special forces trained, he wasn’t wounded, he has no valor awards. And of course, he goes all secret squirrel when the folks at GBPE call him on the phone;

    Oh, not again.
    I know this will make the “not another SEAL-poser” crowd happy, but I’m not happy that Bill Harney chose to defame the Green Berets.

    Bill Harney is a convicted criminal.
    Bill Harney is a liar.
    Bill Harney is not a Green Beret.
    Bill Harney is a fraud.
    Bill Harney is going to regret his lies.
    Bill Harney has been exposed as the slimeball he is.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I second that!

      Bill Harney is a convicted criminal.

      Let me see if I copy that transmission correctly,, you said:

      Bill Harney is a convicted criminal.
      Bill Harney is a liar.
      Bill Harney is not a Green Beret.
      Bill Harney is a fraud.
      Bill Harney is going to regret his lies.

      I assume that is quite correct.

    • Bill M says:

      I heard that Graybeard said:

      Bill Harney is a convicted criminal.
      Bill Harney is a liar.
      Bill Harney is not a Green Beret.
      Bill Harney is a fraud.
      Bill Harney is going to regret his lies.

      Was it in that exact order or was this the order:

      Bill Harney is a liar.
      Bill Harney is going to regret his lies.
      Bill Harney has been exposed as the slimeball he is.
      Bill Harney is a fraud.
      Bill Harney is not a Green Beret.
      Bill Harney is a convicted criminal.

      Not that it matters, because Bill Harney is a POS.

  2. Guard Bum says:

    Fuck that guy! What a bad poser, he needs to buy a motorcycle and a leather vest or at least have a service dog or something.

    • Carlton G. Long says:

      He does at least have a “Special Forces” hat and doucherocket sunglasses, so he’s not entirely without hope.

      Of course, I could have driven my old HEMTT through that gap in his front teeth.

    • Hayabusa says:

      At least he’s got the Florida part down.

      I wonder if All Points Logistics needs a generator operator?

  3. Claw says:

    First time I’ve ever seen the term (non-effective) applied to the principal duty of a MOS 57A Duty Soldier.

    I can’t even imagine how big of a worthless POS you have to be to have the designation of “non-effective” written into your records.

    • Mick says:

      In addition to being described as being ‘non-effective’, he also received the following highly coveted performance evaluations for the same time period:

      – Conduct: UNSAT

      – Efficiency: UNSAT

      Totally legit.

      He must have been one helluva badass life taker and heart breaker during all of those highly classified missions in the Viet of the Nam.

      Hopefully one day POTUS, SCOTUS, and Congress will all come together in a unanimous agreement to approve the unsealing of his highly classified records so that we can finally learn the real truth about has amazing acts of derring do.

      • Mick says:

        * about HIS amazing acts of derring do

      • Claw says:

        Reviewing the dates on the 2-1, it looks to me like he went AWOL/Deserted after receiving orders for Viet of the Nam and not even a stint at the Retraining Brigade at Fort Riley could straighten him out, so off to Leavenworth he went and not for attendance at the C&GS course.

        As far as the non-effective designator, I guess that means he didn’t even have the initiative or self worth as a man to even wipe his own ass after taking a shit.

        In my estimation, he doesn’t even deserve the NDSM posted to his records.

        • Combat Historian says:

          “Enroute to USAPAC” on your 2-1 usually means an all-expense paid trip to the Viet of the Nam. This fucker was apparently not keen on going…

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            So it’s apparent that he chickened out of a tour in Vietnam as a Generator Jockey in which he likely would have stayed in the rear if I’m correct.

        • Hondo says:

          I’d bet on a longish (6 mo) AWOL or desertion, Claw.

          His Casual/Entoute to USAPAC entry is dated 9 Jun 67. The next entry appears to be his assignment as a Duty Soldier/Spec Proc Det (illegible) with the RepoDepot at Fort Lewis – and is dated 25 Jan 68.

          To me, that looks an awful lot like AWOL for 6+ months (or desertion) in lieu of reporting to Vietnam, followed by either apprehension or voluntary return to duty. But I could be wrong.

  4. ChipNASA says:

    This shithead turd weasel got caught and then tried to play the “I can’t tell you about it” bullshit and then just rolled over and said in the same breath, “Yeah I didn’t get any of that stuff and I’m a loser”, and then DOUBLED DOWN on the “I can’t talk about it” AGAIN and then just bailed.
    I can’t even say he had perfectly good service as he went to the USDB Leavenworth for some offense.

    “I move that Bill Harney; phony Green Beret has earned the WALL O INSULTS.”

              Welcome Mayhem

              As always, if anyone has a recommendation for an addition, just post it and if it’s not too close to something that already is on there, I will add it or edit it AS TO not be to repetative.

  6. Mick says:


    This morning we have a phony Green Beret flushed out into the open for you. Please proceed inbound.

    You are cleared hot.

  7. OldManchu says:

    The green beret posers are still lagging way behind the SEAL posers for 2017. They need to step it up.

  8. AverageNCO says:

    He must be familiar with the poser outing scenario, because as soon as he received the first phone call he dumped his Facebook. As you can see we had already screen shot the important stuff. Regardless of his Top-Secret nonsense, his own Facebook proves he’s a liar. He had two different photos on his Facebook of SF squads, and it both pics he claimed to be a specific person in the photo. One pic was taken in 1962 when he was too young to serve, and the soldier in the other pic was ID’d as someone else.
    The one tragic thing about him taking down his Facebook is that none of you get to see his video from 2008 where he announces his plans to run for President. It was about 15 minutes long, and in true Billy Madison style, I was dumber for having watched it.

  9. Grunt says:

    You know, it just blows me away that people do shit like this. If I had a military experience like this guy’s, I’d count my blessings, keep my head down, and go about my life like a normal person. Not double down on my stupidity.

    I don’t get it.

    • Graybeard says:

      When you work around criminals long enough, you finally realized that – counter to all good sense – they not only double-down on stupid, they flip the die to ’64’

      There are a few who learn from the pain of being stupid, but most will pee on the electric fence again thinking they can beat the odds.

      • RM3(SS) says:

        I worked in the jail for a few years, what I noticed was that within a few days of being booked in, the inmates would always have a way of twisting the events around that got them incarcerated until they were the victim.

        • Graybeard says:

          No one in prison is guilty. Just ask ’em, they’ll tell you.

          (Honestly, a few do admit they are guilty. Those are the guys who either have a great chance of going straight when they get out, or don’t give a rat’s… about it, and will do it again.)

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    Must be the spring sunshine. The fake esseffers are going to start popping up like weeds in a discouraged lawn.

  11. sounds like he was more a 1st class phallic squeezer bovine manure specialist, not so much a green beret nor even a 52B generator repair spec. unless of course he worked in dark ops because he couldn’t get the generators to work, thus no lights….yeah that’s it, he worked in the dark

  12. Rob Gricks says:

    He does have the National Defense Service medal. We know they don’t just hand those out, so he has that going for him.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Mine is in its own shadow box, with a 24/7 spotlight on it. The glass is double thick and beside the box is a keypad for coded access. Once a month I unlock the box, remove the medal and clean it.

      • Mick says:

        Mine glows in the dark.

        It shines like a beacon, for all who see it to both covet and admire.

        • rgr769 says:

          I am sure we all can never forget that special formation when we received this “major award.” It was likely a seminal moment. It was my first real participation trophy, anyway on AD. You really can’t even call it an “I was there” medal, because everyone at the time was wherever you were on entry on AD.

    • ChipNASA says:

      I had one and I didn’t mind it properly and then when it hit puberty when it got older, it gave birth to a second one so now, I have to keep them locked up and separated, lest I have another.
      /no way, too fat, old, disabled and DGAFF anymore.

      • HMC Ret says:

        Chip: Ditto here. I learned I had earned two, count them, two of the highly coveted NDSM. I was only presented one in my shadow box, but somehow the one in the box was able to asexually reproduce so, walla, there are now two.

        In keeping with the status of such awards, I keep them in a titanium casement filled with inert argon gas. This was they are protected from all elements. Future generations will pay homage to me and my many accomplishments.

  13. Green Thumb says:

    Confinement-style discharge.


  14. Martinjmpr says:

    Minor quibble, Jonn: Does not look like he was incarcerated at Leavenworth but rather was sent to the US Army Correctional Training Facility. I looked it up on Google and found this link:

    Summary from the page:

    In 1968, the US Army Correctional Training Facility (CTF) was established at Fort Riley, Kansas, in response to public demands during the mid-1960s that society should attempt to rehabilitate criminals in confinement rather than just confine them. Its mission was to return military inmates to duty with improved attributes and motivation through intensive training, supervision and correctional treatment. It has been described as the first boot camp or ‘shock incarceration’ programme.

    • Martinjmpr says:

      BTW I have a vague memory of some kind of similar “disciplinary unit” at Fort Riley in the 1980’s, does anyone else remember that?

      • Martinjmpr says:

        Ah, found it. It was called the US Army Retraining Brigade (USARB.)

        Is it still there? I’m not finding any modern references to the USARB. Again I seem to recall it was there in the Summer of 1985 or so when my COARNG did annual training (AT) at Riley.

        I’m guessing with the end of the draft and the rise of the all-volunteer force the Army figures there’s little point in trying to keep problem children in uniform when it’s easier to kick them to the curb and find someone who wants to be there.

        • Combat Historian says:

          I remember reading about the Retraining Brigade in an old article in the old “Soldiers” magazine when I was an enlisted guy back in the early ’80s. It was sort of like disciplinary bootcamp for lousy performers and GI delinquents…

          P.S.: Do they still even publish that mag anymore? Back in my enlisted days, they used to have female swimsuit models on the back-end page. I bet they don’t anymore…

        • Claw says:

          MJ, as near as I can tell (from interwebz researching) the USARB and it’s later named counterpart the USA Correctional Brigade, ceased operations at Camp Funston (on Fort Riley proper) on 1 October 1992.

          The last real reference I saw to there being a “Retraining” atmosphere was in the early 80’s, then it was turned over to a “Corrections” type operation.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      My mistake. Thanks.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        My guess is he probably didn’t commit any serious crimes like robbery, assault or rape, more likely he was just a dirtbag, shirker, goldbrick, etc. Probably got a couple of ART 15’s and when those didn’t straighten him out, his command sent him to Fort Riley to try and “rehabilitate” him.

        I’m guessing that was easier than trying to come up with charges for a Court Martial.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        Leavenworth is much cooler than some retraining brigade. There are no street creds given for retraining brigade or, for that matter, a stint in the stockade. Ya gots to go to the Big House for creds.

      • Claw says:

        You didn’t make a mistake, Jonn.

        Harney, himself, said in the phone call that he was sent to Leavenworth from Riley.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Give him the street creds! He earned them, the hard way.

          • Claw says:

            Well the next to last entry on the 2-1 does say “Conf” (not Conf/Trainee like at Riley) from October 68 until February 69, but with the station being redacted one can only surmise it was the big gray bar hotel.

            It was big boy time he spent there, not like juvey time at Riley./smile

            • Claw says:

              Not to mention that the Conf/Trainee entry does say he PCS’ed away from Riley, so I’m pretty sure he spent his last days of “Service” at the big house.

              But, Yeah, 2/17 makes a good point on getting your street creds bumped up so you can run with the big dogs instead of staying on the porch.

        • Martinjmpr says:

          Yeah, he also said he was a green beret.

          If this shitbird told me the sky was blue I’d check for myself before I believed it.

    • Perry Gaskill says:

      One possibility is that Harney was drafted in Sept. ’66. He was trained as a powerman, then sent to Ft. Sam where he managed to seriously piss somebody off. As a form of punishment, and to get rid of him, the med unit cut him orders for Viet Nam.

      The record seems unclear about what happened next. From 9 Jun ’67 to 1 May ’68, Harney was apparently either in the wind as an AWOL or undergoing punishment for not reporting for transit to RVN. The hand-written entries for 1 May ’68 and the one above it are cryptic. Was the “USADIRETLSTH” or whatever at Ft. Lewis the transit depot for RVN deployment per his Ft. Sam orders? If so, why did he spend four months at Ft. Lewis before getting bounced to Ft. Dix and then Ft. Riley? Did he refuse to go to RVN?

      An alternate scenario is that the AWOL time was because Harney thought he could run out the clock. If he showed up at Lewis with less than one year left in service, he wouldn’t normally have deployed to RVN because it would have amounted to less than a full tour.

      Still another aspect is that Harney might have served only two years in the Army if he was a draftee, but wound up spending an extra six months by being a dummy.

      • Claw says:

        Perry, I’m usually pretty good at deciphering those acronyms on Form 2-1’s, so here goes:

        The hand written entries refer to SPEC PROC DET (illegible) USAOSREPLSTA which to me say Special Processing Detachment at the US Army Overseas Replacement Station at Fort Lewis.

        Hope I helped.

        • Perry Gaskill says:

          Thanks, Claw. That makes sense. According to the Ft. Lewis chronology on Wikipedia, the base was limited to being a transfer and training center between the time the 4th ID left in ’66 to go to RVN, and the time a brigade of the 9th ID returned from RVN to Lewis in ’69.

        Claw and Ex……….thanks for your concern. Life is good for me. I know I had not commented in quite a while. In saying that, I have still been following TAH everyday.

        For a time, I was dealing with a lot of anger concerning my treatment at the hands of the jailers during my time in Oregon. I got off with diversion. I have four more hours of education classes and I’m done with it.

        I’ll be going back in Oct for alumni weekend hoping I run into that cadet jailer on the street, so I can tell him what a dick he was and is?

  19. rgr769 says:

    Isn’t interesting how we constantly have all these stockade and brig rats with DD’s claiming to be high-speed special operations war heroes. It is getting to the point where the ex-military dick-steppers are now outnumbering the never-served valor thieves. The totally fake valor thieves like “Soup Sandwich” and “Soul-patch McBallduster” are becoming more of a rarity here.

    • The Stranger says:

      Soup actually served, he got bounced for drugs (huffing).

      • Combat Historian says:

        Same for Soul-Patch, I think he actually made it to E-3 before the Army got tired of his nonperformance of duty…

        • rgr769 says:

          I stand corrected. I thought any that outlandish in their valor thievery were among our never-served crew. I guess I should have looked them up, instead of just spouting off a la Larsie. Sometimes accuracy is your bitch and sometimes not so much.

    Hey! Hey! That’s General Ballduster Mc Soulpatch and Master Sergeant Soup Sandwich. Both legendary. Both dead.
