Christopher Lee Robbins; phony Green Beret

| October 14, 2017 | 65 Comments

Our partners at Guardians of the Green Beret share their work on this plus-sized model for the ACUs, Christopher Lee Robbins. From the looks of his uniform, he’s claiming to be a Master Sergeant, Special Forces qualified, Ranger, a combat veteran, a parachutist, Air Assault trained, and a Pathfinder. He also claims that he served in the 1st Ranger Battalion in Grenada;

Actually, he was a 13Foxtrot, fire support redleg artilleryman for about 23 months in the 7th Division who shot up to the rank of Private (E-1) before the Army kicked him to the curb;

Actually, Mr Robbins is just a fat slug with a credit account at Ranger Joe’s and unfulfilled dreams. Why do they make plus-sized ACUs?

    “Why do they make plus-sized ACUs?”

    Have you seen some of the people serving nowadays? Unfortunately, there are some big people who somehow make tape. There’s a secret: get so fat that your neck gets a fat roll I know at least two former Soldiers (both retired now) who taped under 20% despite weighing well over 250 lbs. They had a 43″ or greater waist but their neck fat offset it.

    As for this overgrown never-was, maybe he and the Heavy Drop Serial Phony from years ago can share stories of derring-do.

    “From this day forward there shall be no Department of Defense issued, approved or authorized uniform item which, when measured, has a circumference greater than 38 inches.”

    That is an EO that would have 0’s and E’s naming their kids Donald for a generation or two.

      That would be fine for the desk set; but, even in the chair force some of us bent wrenches. A few hours of installing a cylinder head on a diesel engine will do more for the pecs than a week at the gym.

    Was taking a Safety Systems Flammable liquid gas course up at the West Point Military Academy years ago and while visiting the Points museuam, I viewed Herman Guerring’s uniform jacket on a dummy which is as wide as the one Robbin’s is wearing. His middle name of Lee has to go because it is not LC (Liberal/Left correct)

    What gets me is that these phonies always pin on every effing badge or piece of bling out there for their fakery. Seriously, I don’t believe I ever saw someone wearing pin on pathfinder, jumpmaster, airmobile, and CIB badges on ACU’s that wasn’t a poser. I guess he thought HALO wings too were a bridge to far.

  7. MSG Eric says:

    Maybe he bought pregnancy ACUs?

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    He looks like Jabba the Hut in ACU’s!

  9. Sparks says:

    Get that CIB off you piece of shit!

  10. I don’t know if the regulation has changed, but when I was in the Army, only two (02) qualification badges could be worn on the olive drab fatigues.

    Also, when wearing the rifle qualification badge on the Class “A” or Class “B” uniform, only two (02) bars could be attached to it, not the ladder of qualification bars we frequently see.

      Without going into measurements, up to five can be worn. With just three badges, they’re “stacked” three in a row, centered above the pocket. With four, they’re “stacked” by twos above the pocket, two stacks above the pocket, with the fifth badge being on top of the two stacks if a fifth badge is worn. The specific distance from each other, and from the pocket are listed in the reg/message.

      • @ THE BESIG:

        Thanks for the update.

      • CWORet says:

        You handled that correction much better than Claw. (Not that I know anything about Army regs, just that you handled it better).

        • AnotherPat says:

          I understand where Claw is coming from since I am Army as well.

          JRM has stated AR ( Army Regulation) 670 -1 when discussing on this blog about wearing his medals and awards to civilan clothes to according to AR 670-1, is not authorized.

          JRM also wears or has worn in the past the Air Assault Badge. I asked JRM if he was stationed at Fort Campbell or went to Air Assault School and he said no. He claimed he is entitled to wear that badge because he received an Honorary Air Assault Certificate from the Commandant in the 1970s.

          If you know anything about a certain disbarred lawyer, that lawyer claimed “Honorary” as well.

          It is the same.

          Also, JRM wears or has worn the Infantry Blue Cord on his civilian clothes. He had never been an 11B
          or an Infantry Soldier. When asked why he wears it after admitting he was never Infantry, he claims he was “ordered” to wear the Cord.

          Find that very, very, very hard to believe. Plus, one does not wear the Blue Infantry Cord on civilian clothes after they leave the Army (JRM did not retire).

          Also, JRM wears “Green Tabs” on his civilian clothes. Those are Leadership Tabs and are only worn when one is on Active Duty ( Regular Army, Army Reserves, National Guard) while in a leadership position. They are “temporary”. One does not wear the Tab on civilian clothes when one leaves the Service.

          I read JRM’s above post and thought it was ironic that he asked that question while at the same time, quotes AR 670-1 on his justification of wearing his awards/ badges/medals on civilian clothes, yet questions the Marksmanship and Qualification Badges on Robbins (yes, Claw is correct when he made that statement). JRM could have looked up AR 670-1 and read the current regulation, since he always discusses AR 670-1 on TAH and in his blog. Just thought it was strange he did that.

          Some of us on TAH jump on phonies big time. I don’t think they are “righteous little bitches” when they do that. JRM did our country and is a Vietnam Veteran, but when he uses AR 670-1 or an honorary certificate as his backup to wearing an unautorized Badge or the Infantry Blue Cord or the Green Tabs or wears them on civilian clothes (such as a Scottish Tartan) to places or events not authorized in AR 670-1, well, it is just irratating. It gives folks who never served in the US Army the wrong impression, similair to what Robbins is wearing.

          As stated before, what JRM wears in his apartment is his business (a Santa Claus suit with the Air Assault Badge). Sadly, that picture is on the Internet…and if one knows he did not earn it, but sees him wearing it, well, that is so sad and irriating at the same time.

          I am not Claw’s backup man. I simply understand where Claw is coming from. And he said words alot kinder than other Sandblasts depicted on TAH. He was not being self-righteous: he was telling the truth. And IMHO, if he came across as being self-righteous to some in what he wrote, then IMHO,there are others who have written worse (strong, sarc languages) that are self righteous as well, to include myself.

            AnotherPat. Your explanation changes things a bit. Thanks for posting.

            A Santa Claus suit with Air Assault badge? Really?

            • AnotherPat says:

              OldManchu: You are welcome.

              Am guessing you are Army as well.

              The whole point of this Blog was to address Robbins wearing unauthorized Badges on the Uniform, not how they are worn.

              Again, since JRM uses AR 670-1 to justify him wearing his Medals/ Ribbons/ Badges on civilian clothes, one would think he could have answered his own question by reading the update version of AR 670-1 on the Internet.

              And yes, sadly he did wear the Air Assault Badge on a Santa Suit as well as a Scottish Kilt. Anyone who has been thru that course knows it is brutal and demanding.

              I will stop hijacking this thread. JRM is a bonafide Vietnam Veteran and received the Bronze Star and an ARCOM for his service in Vietnam. But he did not attend the Air Assault School or was Infantry. Don’t know why he wears the Green Tabs,but do know you only wear those Tabs when you are in a leadership position while on Active, Army Reserve or National Guard status and not after you leave the Service…and especially not on civilian clothes or a Scottish Kilt at non-miltary functions.

              • OldManchu says:

                I’m indeed Army. One single hitch 1989 – 1992. Infantry 11C. No airborne or air assault but I did earn my EIB.

                Thanks again for the info I look forward to future posts.

          • CWORet says:

            Wow. Ok, AP. I did not know that about JRM. Which is odd. I don’t think it’s been brought up here before that I’ve seen. I’ve been a regular lurker (before retirement, I post more now). I found TAH googling around while Manning was in the now defunct Quantico brig and Code Skank was planning a ‘massive’ protest (at a park in Q-Town). So this surprises me. Anyway, we’re supposed to blasting fat ass pictured above, so I’ll also exit this side thread. Appreciate the explanation.

          • rgr769 says:

            Just one clarification on the green leadership tabs: One has to remove them from the uniform when one leaves that leadership position. I wore them most of my active duty career, but not when I was made an infantry battalion or SF group staff officer. The same applies to the Blue Rope of Doom. Once one is no longer assigned to an Infantry unit, the blue cord is supposed to come off the uni. Thus, no one wore them in SF units, even if one was an Infantry officer.

  11. Is he also claiming law enforcement?

    That looks like some sort of police department shoulder insignia displayed on the wall behind him, to his right.

  12. Just An Old Dog says:

    When I was at MCRD we had a recruit we had to special order Cammie Blouses for.
    He was about 6 foot 8. He was pretty heavy, but the big issue was the length of his arms.

    • Hayabusa says:

      When I was at Schofield Barracks in the ’90s, there was an SFC assigned to the engineer battalion who was a large gentleman, but fat was not a factor. He was Samoan and was on the All-Army Powerlifting Team. I’d see him in the gym from time to time, and remember watching him bench press over 500 pounds and squat over 800. When he got new BDUs, he had to take them to the tailor, who would remove the arms, open up the seam, then sew about a 4-inch strip of woodland camo into them, then re-attach them. It was the only way the sleeves would fit over his arms when rolled up.

    How do you score tossing grenades?
    Is it like bean bag where there is a hole in a sheet of plywood?

    Oh bother said Pooh, Christopher Robbins is a lying sack of shit pretender with bigger tits than mother.

  15. Dustoff says:

    ID card photo, just as I suspected… a “zipper head” haircut. I’m sure he drank grape soda and smoked dope.

  16. HMC Ret says:

    I’m not an expert on Army devices and insignias, but if he is wearing the Pathfinder device, he must have earned it by finding his way to the chow hall or Golden Corral Buffet.
