Mike Faram; phony Marine sniper

| October 16, 2017 | 52 Comments

Someone sent us their work on this Mike Faram fellow who calls himself “Gunney”, not knowing how to the spell the shortened form of the Marine Corps rank (Gunny) Gunnery Sergeant.

On his Twitter profile, Faram claims to be a Marine Corps sniper;

Yeah, no, he spent 16 months in the Marine Corps and he was discharged, not as a gunnery sergeant (E-7), but as a private first class (E-2);

There’s no sniper training in his records.

Folks tell us that he tells them that he added the extra “E” to the rank title so people wouldn’t confuse him with R Lee Ermey. Like that would happen.

Faram goes secret squirrel;

Reminder; there are no classified DD214s.

    Not a Navy Seal?
    No team Six service?


  2. Combat Historian says:

    Okay, I’m stumped; what the hell is a “trucking personality” ??

    And yeah, the guy’s a lying douchebag…

  3. Yef says:

    The more they talk the less they have actually done.

    E-2 in 16 months?
    Shouldn’t he be E-3 at that point?

  4. Yef says:

    First enlistment was for 4 years back then, right?

    So he got kicked out.

    • SSG Kane says:

      They had a lot of wierd enlistment options back then, as long as the total came out to eight years it didn’t really matter how much was “AD/TPU” and how much was IRR.

      Or at least that was my experience with the Army in 1991. My recruiter really pushed 18 and 24 month “options”.

    E before Y after N.

    He looks like one dick-stepping meat gazer.

  7. IDC SARC says:

    Boot to the head!

  8. REMF says:

    Your Eagle, Globe and Anchor is hereby revoked. Report to your nearest USMC base with your DD-214 and ID yourself as “Gunney” the sniper.

  9. 1610desig says:

    Way to go, “Gurney”, you look like you’re struggling hard to create a single synapse within your thick cranium

  10. Bobo says:

    I think that he misspelled Gooney.

  11. Whisper Alley says:

    This POS hauls bullshit around in his trailer from coast to coast! He should get together with his fellow phony Marine Corps Sniper and shitty actor Travis Aaron Wade. They can make a movie called Smokey and the Shitheads!

    Is he from Florida?????????????. How come I keep typing in the Florida thing at nearly every post when it comes to the Mil phonies.HHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    If you’re going to grow a mustache – and I say IF – then make sure it doesn’t look like dried snot on your upper lip when you’re too lazy to wipe your nose.


    Dumber than “dumb and dumber”. Dumber than a box of bent screws. Dumber than a can of used worms. Dumber than a fruit fly landing on a potato.

  14. HMCS(FMF ) ret says:

    “Gunney” is a butt sniper at the local ghey bar…

  15. Mark Lauer says:

    Another SNIPER.
    Jeez; seems like the only MOS in the Corps is Scout/Sniper. Oh, and RECON.

  16. Carlton G Long says:

    I couldn’t get paat the Coca-Cola Cowboy hat.

  17. FatCircles0311 says:

    Confirmed booted out of the Marine Corps for getting too much 29 palms sand in his vagina!

  18. FuzeVT (0602 by trade) says:

    I guess he has to be a “gunney” and a sniper so he can be a PTSD counselor. No one wants to pour his heart out to the guy who made it as far as E-2 in 16 months and couldn’t hack basic comm school.

  19. Rosalee Adams says:

    The longer I read this blog the more I see of this and it leaves me with mixed emotions.
    I cannot understand how they can do it given someone will eventually call them on it; someone who has served in units they claim.
    I would call them if they claimed they served at the same duty stations I did during my years.
    *****shakes head in disbelief*****

  20. A Proud infidel®™ says:

    If he IS a Trucker, I bet he has done a LOT of meat gazing in truck stops and rest areas!

  21. Just An Old Dog says:

    Looks like he Rocked out of Comm School in July of 83′ and was sent to Camp Lejuene. Spent Aug-Sept in Hospital and was Transferred to Reserves( Probably on paper only) Then Discharged in Jan 84.
    I’m betting Medical Discharge.

    Its not his truck its a company truck for Van Kampen out of Michigan
