John Epling; phony wounded veteran

| February 13, 2018 | 64 Comments

Our partners at Military Phonies share their work on this John Epling fellow. He claims that he was wounded while he was serving as a combat engineer in Iraq while he spent five years on active duty;

He spent a few months on active duty when he was mobilized from his Army Reserve unit to support Operation Iraqi Freedom, but he didn’t deploy, he didn’t encounter any IEDs and his knee is just fine. And, oh, his ex-wife didn’t get his veterans’ compensation – he never got any to begin with;

    Spawn of Brian “Chaz” Culp?

  2. OldManchu says:

    And what the fuck is on his chin? Has he been getting chin tapped by what’s left of Bradley Manning’s shriveled ball sack?

  3. The Stranger says:

    Man, that picture of him with the rifle sure looks like it was taken at Atterbury!

    Dude looks like Randy Quaid in Nat. Lampoon’s Holiday vacation:

    “Shitters full.”

    “Don’t go puttin’ none of that stuff on my sled, Clark. You know that metal plate in my head? I had to have it replaced, cause every time Catherine revved up the microwave I’d piss my pants and forget who I was for a half hour or so. So over at the VA they had to replace it with plastic. It ain’t as strong so I don’t know if I should go sailin down no hill with nothing between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.”

    Nothing like begging for a flatscreen TV to prove how destitute you are.

    Look at that happy face.
    Wouldn’t you just like to slap the shit out him? Probably keep right on grinnin.

    No Seal phonies this morning at the TAH starting gate?

  8. Roh-Dog says:

    Please tell me the local PD is tracking this guy…and they’re keeping him away from minors.
    Chomo odds: 47%

    He might try a more honest approach, such as this:

    Imbecile and inveterate liar who can’t keep a job is in want of things, such as a TV and household furnishings that he is unwilling to acquire through socially legitimate channels.

  10. Carlton G. Long says:

    He’s on his way to get some “french fried ‘taters…”

  11. AZtoVA says:

    Looking for two tires for my repo’ed car. Brilliant!

  12. MrBill says:

    Even if he was getting VA disability, it cannot be divided as property in a divorce the way that military retired pay can. Maybe he was ordered to pay child support and he’s unhappy about that.

    Wound fakers and phony POWs are the bottom feeders of the Stolen Valor food chain.

  14. Thunderstixx says:

    Got a bad case of the youglies while he’s at it…
    Looks like he just swallowed…

  15. Graybeard says:

    What a wuss – crying ’cause his wife took everything (meaning the only box of mac & cheese left in the house) and wanting others to give him free stuff.

    He checks:
    Phony combat
    Real service

  16. rgr769 says:

    He certainly makes a bad comparo with that young Ranger we just lost to a training accident at Ft. Lewis. Too bad we can’t trade this faker for that real warrior.

  17. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    SO what does he do now, live in a van down by the river when he’s not blowing winos behind bus stops? OOH, our FIRST fake 42A and 92Y?

  18. Wilted Willy says:

    His photo sure looks like the patented meat gazers stare to me? I sure as hell wouldn’t let him around any children! Lock this phony fucker up and keep him!

  19. Atkron says:

    I love the whole ‘In Need’ of a big ol’ flat screen TV.

    Bitch, you NEED clothing, you NEED food, you NEED shelter.

    I hate people…

  20. JURRASSICHM says:

    Why not ask for an IPHONE 8 while you’re at it goofus?

  21. JACK SHIT says:

    John Epling does not know me.

  22. Skippy says:

    I’ve said it on here before, we are going to have a bumper crop of fakes coming out of the the sewer here
    I saw plenty of them in the army with epic war stories
    My wake up call was while I was at a hospital in Bethesda being repaired
    The shit was high and very stinky

  23. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Ok, let me net this out. If you are looking for something to invest in, go Elevis collectables, Bitcoin or squirrel furs.

    This guy is a bad investment.

    First, he says he sold everything he had …. twice. Well, that should be a clue, because that can be done only once.

    Second, he asks for people to buy him more stuff. Why, for a third sale?

    Finally, I thinks youze guys gots my points here.

    Bad investment.

  24. Frankie Cee says:

    John Epling’s facebook’s last post was in 2014. Has anyone seen an different page for him?

  25. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    IMHO John Epling looks like the kind of doucheball one would send on Sick Call to get his Masturbation Papers.

  26. 2quick2judge says:

    First of all he is not a fake or a phony. Second he is not into guys, that was a rumor spread by someone who had nothing better to do. Third, yes he really had sold his stuff, been able to get it back then sale it again. He has a few close friends helping as much as they can. Yes he has 2 kids, and soon to be ex wife that is drama. Lastly as far as the comment goes about him not working, he had a damn good job, but became extremely sick. Not to long after he was able to go back he was laid off. I can’t believe you all would bully someone like this.

    • Youhavenoclue says:

      First of all he is into guys, I’ve seen it first hand with him and his ex..and no he quit his job so his ex wouldn’t get any money which he told her he would do before them splitting. As far as her being drama, get out of here with that shit. You have no clue what your talking must be one of the fucked up sisters defending him.,wake up.

  27. *ImAllTruth* says:

    Ok I been waiting a long time to post and talk about this. I am his cuzn and to comment on what everyone is saying….most or all is true. He never was deployed never made it past Camp. He decided it was a good idea to go up the rope wall and fall off the other side. So to sum up all that was said. 100% True.
