John Wyatt Dawkins; phony SEAL

| February 15, 2018 | 89 Comments

Our partners at Military Phonies share their work on John Wyatt Dawkins who claims to be a Desert Storm veteran and a Navy SEAL in social media. He tries to get by with fictitious BUD/S classmates and when that doesn’t work, he goes secret squirrel. Dawkins claims that he can’t get his records from the Navy;

Yeah, well the folks at MP got his records. He spent time in the Navy and the Navy Reserves, then he went to the Army for a year – he was in Basic Training during Desert Storm.

In the Navy he was a Fireman Apprentice (E-2) and in the Army he was an Infantryman (E-4).

    Army SP4s are always sent to be SEALs…I cannot tell you how many times some SEAL would simply appear in the mist of a cold morning and PRESTO! One of our SP4s would be gone to perform SEKRET SWERRILL missions.

      Do nicely share the facts with his employer without any references to his momma. His ass is grass and we be the lawnmower.

      Straight outta Benning onto the teams. Yep, happens all the time. Haha.

    • E4 Mafia For Life. says:

      I looked at the Army SEALS roster that I maintain.
      There is no one by the name John Wyatt Dawkins listed.
      Here is the complete list of cycles by year, cadre and attendees:
      1 AD – 2018 AD:
      If I’ve missed it, someone have a second look at the list.
      I can also verify that Dawkins did not earn the Sham Shield™.

      • MARK E BROWN aka M1Hound says:

        Please check again, I am indeed on the official list. Perhaps that list is above your paygrade and, I would bet, you don’t have the security clearance to even know of the list’s existence.Class 809 was my class which is Army SEALs transfer program, wasn’t it? I don’t understand why these guys continue with the lies, the charades, and scams even after they are called out over and over again. I did my 2.5 yrs in the Army and I am proud of what I did but I was no hero, no special forces, no nothing except just me. That’s good enough, in fact, that’s better than many, many men can say. I enlisted in 1968 while 100’s if not 1000’s were going to Canada, but that’s a whole story for a different place on a different day. I really appreciate TAH, Phony Green Berets, etc. All the organizations the pursue these liars and fakes for no personal glory but for love of country.

  2. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    I myself was selected for SEAL training immediately after taking the oath of enlistment. There I was, learning how to properly polish boots when in march two Navy officers, a Marine, and an Air Force major. All of them begged me to join their elite, special forces. Oh, they talked a good line but, when they were done making their pitches, I thanked them and returned to polishing my boots. True story.

  3. AW1Ed says:

    This steely-eye killer has SEAL written all over him. Legit!

  4. Claw says:

    Wonder why he only did 12 months on active duty in the Army? One year enlistment? Never heard of those.

    Maybe had a bale of cotton fall on his head and got a medical.

    Anyway, Dumb Ass!!

  5. Combat Historian says:

    Since he was in Navy and then Army, he should’ve claimed both Navy SEAL and Army SF. Go big or go home…

  6. Ex-PH2 says:

    This is no shit. The tongue sticking out of his mouth is by far THE MOST nauseating thing ever posted on TAH.

    I would rather look at earthworms mating in a mud wrestling pit!

    • 1610desig says:

      And the ubiquitous “place name of desired conflict here” VETERAN (repeated on brim for added emphasis) outsized hat worn at a “jaunty” angle….he’s a lady killer

      That reminds me …. ingredients for your next weekend cook-up:

      Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
      I’m gonna eat some worms!
      Big fat juicy ones
      Teeny tiny squishy ones
      See how they wiggle and squirm!

      Down goes the first one, down goes the second one
      Oh how they wiggle and squirm!
      Up comes the first one, up comes the second one
      Oh how they wiggle and squirm!

      Bite off the heads, suck out the juice
      Throw the skins away!
      Nobody knows how fat I grow
      Eatin’ worms three times a day!

      Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
      I’m gonna eat some worms!

      That tongue looks like it’s getting ready to do some sqeakhole pleasuring.

    • IDC SARC says:

      Bwahahahaha…Thanks for the laugh Ex-PH2

    • Graybeard says:

      I beg leave to differ, Ex-PH2.
      It may be among the most ludicrous of photos, but for nauseating I still maintain that the top positions all belong to certain (D) congress wimminz.

    • Aussiepusser says:

      That was my first thought

      *vomit in my mouth*

  7. Wilted Willy says:

    What a fucking retard, he isn’t even trying? No doo rag, Harley, sunglasses, meat gazers stare? You don’t even rate as a good phony, good luck with your internet fame there cocksucker!

  8. Brown Neck Gaitor says:

    Ah the elusive 54 week enlistment…

  9. Bim says:

    His latest fb post says “Aint no navy seal but i aint fake”. Well, I guess that clears everything up. We can all stand down.

    But Jesus- that shirt. Can you picture any Seal wearing that? Only dipshits like this guy would try to play the overt “I’m a tough-guy, just look at my ‘Death Smile’ shirt” game.

    It would be funny if the company that makes that shirt could release their records – We’d have hundreds of new Seal wannabes to have fun with.

    Actually, that gives me an idea! Someone should start an over the top Navy Seal clothing line, with huge Tridents, scary sayings, and macho phrases like this – stuff that no respectable Seal would EVER wear. When someone actually buys something, their contact info automatically goes over TAH, MP and The Don. We’d have a never ending source of idiots for very little effort.

  10. NHSparky says:

    4 years in the Navy and can’t get past E-2?

    Does this clown even have a pulse? Even rocks with lips can reasonably make E-4 first enlistment.

    • Atkron says:


      I knew a few guys that got out as E-3’s. But, the only ones I knew that got out as E-2’s were kicked out.

      9 months in grade, and a Special Request Chit get you E-2.

      9 months in grade, completing your BMR course, and a Special Request Chit get you E-3.

      1 year in grade, and taking the test for 3rd Class…might get you E-4.

      Regardless, this turd got flushed by the Navy, and the Army plunged him back up.

      • Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

        Atkron-As I have posted in the past, I was 17 when I when in and a slow learner so I passed the MM3 just before I got out as E 3 after 3 years. When the records were checked when I started my inactive reserve monthly meeting’s, I got to wear the MM3 Crow.

  11. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    To paraphrase a line from the late comedian, Don Adams:

    ‘Dawkins is not the man he used to be. Come to think of it, he never was the man he used to be.’

  12. Bos’n Mate Mac says:

    The old “ I can’t get my records from the VA” trick! LMAO

  13. Martinjmpr says:

    The one year Army enlistment is weird. If he just served a year and then had no service afterwards you could figure maybe a medical discharge, but he went on to do another year (again, just ONE) in the reserves.

    What the hell? How does that happen?

  14. The Chief says:

    Is he related to the Guillen dude? They look alike. We can now begin profiling what the Navy SEALS (fake) look like.

  15. Doc Savage says:

    Dammit……the phony seals are pulling ahead with a nice lead.

    C’mon, phonies… the Army a bit of love, would ya??

      Does John Wyatt Dawkins like to fake being a US Navy SEAL while playing “CB Rambo” in truck stop parking lots?

  17. HMC Ret says:

    This guy would be eaten alive if he showed up at my VA wearing that shirt. It screams fakery. I’ve seen some fakers called out and it ain’t pretty. It would be fun as crap to follow him around the VA or sit close by, waiting for the inevitable BOOM.

  18. Frankie Cee says:

    I left him some love and invited him to come over here.
    John Dawkins, you lying, fucking piece of shit. You were no Navy SEAL. What the fuck makes you want to stand in the blood of better men than you, making your damned claims. You want to be famous? You got it, asshole. Your name will be etched forever at Gooooooooogle, with every comment made mentioning your name. Come over to this blog, and see what real people think of your lyin’ ass.

    Be sure, in your comments, to mention his name.

  19. HMC Ret says:

    I knew he was a fake when I saw his cover. The letters aren’t nearly large enough.

  20. Dustoff says:

    This dude looks like he served honorably and has an EIB, which is impressive (to me at least). Why the hell does he have to “Navy Seal” it all up?

  21. OSC(SW) Retired says:

    Not important but as a correction to your last line his History of Assignments shows that he did make E-4 (MM3) during his active duty stint in the Navy.

  22. JimV says:

    Where is his service dog. I’m sure he needs one after being a Seal.

  23. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    John Dawkins is an Atomic Cocksucker.

  24. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Fireman Deuce Snipe. Because of my above post, I really can’t knock the guy about the E 3 deal. Is he from Florida? Heaven to Mergatroyd, looks like the Seals are picking up the lead at the TAH starting gate.

    • Frankie Cee says:

      He is in South Carolina, but after the heat is off, he will move down here, to Florida, buy a leather vest, doo rag, and find a Legion Post and take his fakery there. This state is such a damned magnet for every type of wacko there is.

  25. Atkron says:

    The only thing that would have made this funnier than it already is; is if this dickhead’s middle name was Wayne, instead of Wyatt.

  28. Carlton G. Long says:

    At least this one, unlike The Liar of Lenoir, seems to have a job (unless RJTT lowers the boom on him)

  29. Lars Taylor's Narcissism says:

    So there I was, one drill weekend, typing away at my keyboard in the cubicles. I looked busy, others were doing things like taking a nap in the closet, watching movies, playing video games, and horsing around in general.

    Well, all of a sudden, someone wanted to get my attention. Apparently, I impressed the Special Forces recruiter that he had to divert from what he was doing to try to get me in. He gave me his sales pitch, but I wasn’t impressed. I thanked him for his time. Didn’t sound as challenging as what I was engaged in when he talked to me.

    The following Sunday, some other guy came by. This time, claiming to be part of a special unit. I wondered how, with all these other reservists doing anything other than training, I was the one that ended up with these recruiters. We’ll, I did not wonder. I am, after all, a Berkeley Graduate.

    I gave this second guy a shot, let him do his sales pitch, all while suspecting that the guy from yesterday was trying something different. Even sending a different guy. Well, I knew this guy was different when he said that his troops did exercises like counting until everyone said, “Potato!”

    I asked him for what I needed to do to sign up.

    You can’t fix stupid…but you can choke the shit out of it.

  31. Daisy Cutter says:

    Is there a POSer convention somewhere each year? All these guys go to it and tell each other stories.

    It’s like having unprotected sex really – if they like a story that they’re told, they assimilate it into their own backstory.

    I’d love to go. Is it in Vegas this year? The motto is “What happens in Vegas, gets on Facebook.”

  32. Graybeard says:


    Not half trying.
    Phony SEAL with real service.
    Photos scream “I’m a goofball.”

    Not Florida, though. No do-rag, vest, service dog, only cheap bling, so a lazy liar at that.

  33. Old 1SG, US Army (retired) says:

    John Wyatt Dawkins is a Phony NAVY SEAL

    Stint in Navy – check
    Stint in Army – check
    OSUT 11B – check
    Redacted DA form 2-1 (blacked out MOS) – check

    Gotta be legit!

    No seal… but definitely a walrus!

  34. rgr769 says:

    This massive turd, John Dawkins, lasted only 8 months as a leg infantryman at Ft. Stewart. He did serve in the 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, but only after it had returned from action in Desert Storm. He was still in basic training at Benning when ground ops occurred in Iraq. So, no SEAL, no combat service whatever.

  35. Green Thumb says:

    This felcher smiles at kids.

    Kids run away.

  36. jeff monroe says:

    Yes this pos lard ass with his tounge out-got mad and piss with me after I told him to put his cap on str8 and first off he is no Desert Storm Veteran either-Just a total lowlife poser

  37. 11 Bravo says:

    I was in the 198 light infantry in Vietnam. LZ Stinson 1/52

  38. Frankie Cee says:

    John Wyatt Dawkins, you know that you can’t hold a job, and that you are going to have to fill out more applications. But, do you know that the HR department, or Safety department, of those trucking companies will check your name at Goooogle to see just who and what you are? Don’t believe me, here is just one name that we have helped make famous, Copy it and google it: KYLE CHRISTOPHER BARWAN. Notice how many pages of “hits” there are. Every single time, we mention your name here, in a comment, that creates a Gooooooogle hit, and dude, those are forever. If you were smart, (no here thinks that you are), you would make an appearance, fess up to your lies, beg our forgiveness, and move the fuck on with your pathetic life.

  39. Cris says:

    The shirts! oh, the humanity! One of my favorite shirts (which I designed but not taking credit for the phrase) said “The faster you get it up, the quicker you get laid”, with the requisite scantly clad lady displayed. Arty and mortar types will understand…

  40. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Maybe he has his hat on sideways and his tongue hanging out because he’s celebrating having given 3,000 blowjobs?
