Our partners at Military Phonies share their work on this fellow, William Hume Harrison who claims in social media discussions to have been a survivor of the Sunday, October 23, 1983 bombing of the US Multi-National Force barracks in Beirut, Lebanon as a member of the 1st/8th Marines of the 24th MAU. He also claims seven years of service in the US Marine Corps;

He was indeed in the Marine Corps, but he enlisted months after the Beirut bombing;

Private Harrison joined the Marine Corps on May 29, 1984. His Recruit training was held at Parris Island SC. His graduation date was Sep. 19, 1984.

He went from there to Marine Corps Base(MCB) Camp Lejeune NC. for training to become a Motor Vehicle Operator. MOS 3531.

Pvt Harrison was transferred to Camp Pendleton CA on Jan. 10, 1985 where he was assigned to the 1st Battalion 11th Marines as a Heavy Equipment Operator. He was later temporary assigned to the 1st Battalion 9th Marines with the same MOS.

    Lying piece of shit caught with shit in his mouth. Good going fuckhead, you just pissed off the entire brotherhood of honorable Marines; good luck with that…

  2. OldManchu says:

    Keep it away from children.

  3. Mustang Major says:

    The article on this clown reminded me that today I have some dog poop to remove from the back yard.

  4. Daisy Cutter says:

    It puts the lotion in the basket.

  5. AnotherPat says:

    A better picture of him…don’t forget to send him some love!


  6. Keepin' It Real says:

    I’m going to go ahead and say that the Tuck Rule comes into play with this one.

    Not the Tom Brady Tuck Rule, but the Tuck Rule from “Silence of the Lambs.”

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    I find the Coneheads to be more attractive, frankly.

  8. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    What a POS! How many guys claim to have survived that attack? The number has to be in the thousand by now. I was born in ’65 and that was too early to be in Beirut, so born in ’66 is a sure giveaway that he’s a phony. I had a friend that went Marines right after high school, and he was home on leave when the attack happened. Rumors spread around that he was KIA that day.

    Them: “Did you hear? Bob was killed in Beirut this morning”
    Me: “Uh, no. I saw him with his girl at The Charcoal Pit on Friday having burgers & shakes”
    Them: “No, no, no…he’s dead”
    Me: “No, no, no…we’re playing street hockey at Spring JHS at noon. You should come”

    For years people would bump into him thinking he was killed that day. He ended up being load master/crew chief or what ever they call them on Marine C-130’s.

  9. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Looks like the CB’s cleared dual parallel runways a top his head to receive multiple inbound C-130’s loaded with copious amounts of bullschitz and Midol for his monthly cramps!

  10. JacktheJarhead says:

    Sounds like a little birdie that sits in a tree!

  11. Jay says:

    Man, people are blowing his FB UP!

  12. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Cum-guzzling pisspants thumb sucking booger-eating candyassed meat gazer, I wonder what he did to get thrown out of the USMC, bed wetting?

  13. Frankie Cee says:

    William Billy Harrison, Lyin’ Marine, will see his name up in lights, when each of us mention him in our comments. To get things warmed up, I left some love in a message, and posted on hie wide open Facebook page
    When he sees his messages, he will read this:
    “You fat, useless, piece of shit. You claim Beirut bombing veteran and you weren’t even in the Marine Corps when it happened. Every time you posers see me on your page you take the coward route and block me on Facebook.. You can hide from me here, but as soon as you do it, I will double down and nail your ass to the Gooooooooooogle wall. If anyone looks you up online they will be able to see what a shitbird you really are. Why don’t you go to this link and do your best to unfuck yourself?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I left some love on his page and he wasted no time either taking it down or blocking me.
      HEY William Billy Harrison, YOU LIED about being a Beirut Marine!

  14. Graybeard says:

    And we have our first phony Beirut survivor of the year. I think, however, that the level of scumbaggery will entail a special multiplier to indicate the depths to which he has sunk.

    In imitation of Dante’s 9 Levels of Hell, I am hereby declaring that for the 2018 TAH Stolen Valor Race there will be The 9 Levels of Stolen Valor Septic Tank.

    Phony Beirut Bombing survivors are hereby assigned to the 9th level. Other determinations to follow.

  15. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    So the only bombing he survived

    (Puts on sunglasses)

    Is two-fer-one “car bomb” night at the local dive bar

  16. Roh-Dog says:

    I ran into a dude that claimed being an Infantryman at Beirut in a cigar store. smelled something fishy (maybe it was the leather vest and fingerless gloves)
    Asked him what he does to commemorate the day, if there was a monument around, that I’d like to attend to pay my respects, the date had to be coming up, it being late October and all (it was the 27th).
    He shut up, pretty sure he didn’t know the date of the horrible loss.

  17. GoldenDragon says:

    Every single Marine that was in during 1983 was in Beruit. Or at least that’s what these dorks make it seem like.

  18. BigHead Tom says:

    Motor-T he was. Every school in the Marine Corps threatens to make you Motor-T if you fail. It’s what kept me from failing out of 2841 skool.

  19. Frankie Cee says:

    It looks like William Hume Harrison has removed several of his recent posts, the ones that had comments about his phoniness.

    • AnotherPat says:

      Frankie Cee: Thank you for leaving him some love.

      By him deleting those comments, he is only showing proof of his distasteful lies and deception and he knows he is full of fecal matter unless he truly believes in his alternate reality world.

      Let’s see him try to delete Google results on WILLIAM HUME HARRISON, Stolen Valor Thief, Phony Beirut Bombing Survivor.

  20. Sandman says:

    “POOF” goes the profile!

  21. AF VET says:

    Heartbreakers and Lifetakers … apparently, he was in Gunny Highway’s unit along with Stitch Jones and Lt Ring.

    • Carlton G. Long says:

      My thoughts exactly. He also beat up Major Powers, pimp-slapped Staff Sgt Webster, gave Roy Jenkins what for in front of Aggie and everyone else at the bar, then stopped by The Globe & Anchor and, working in tandem with Sgt Major Chuzu, gave Little Mary a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to keep her axle greased.

  22. lily says:

    Harrison just wanted to be a combat Vet without having been in combat. It’s easy and fun that way. Kind of like those who claim to have a disability without ever having it. Most vets would say the VA can have back their disability money if they could have back their health.

  23. Lmn0351 says:

    William Harrison,you suck

  24. USAF RET says:

    This guy rocked it out. 2 years active duty and never had to sew on a stripe. That’s $2.75 savings my friends.

  25. Casey says:

    Just how long was a standard contract for the Marines back then, anyway?

  26. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Terl’s pale cousin?

  27. Frankie Cee says:

    William Hume Harrison, you piece of shit coward. Do you think that blocking me on Facebook will let you off the hook? I have messaged several of your friends, and heard back from a couple of them. You are on the Goooooogle wall of shame.

  28. Green Thumb says:

    Discharged as an E-1.


  29. Frankie Cee says:

    I just got this message on Facebook:
    “Hello. You don’t know me but I am William Harrison’s ex-wife. I’ve read with interest the stories online about his fake military career. I don’t know who figured it out or who did the investigation but I wondered how long it would take for someone to put two and two together. Educate whomever you want but I would ask that you be respectful of our son. He knows nothing about any of this and I intend to keep it that way. Good luck.”
    To which I replied:
    “”Educate whomever you want but I would ask that you be respectful of our son.” “respectful”? In what way? Are you protecting him from the truth? How would I know who your son is? I live well knowing that nothing trumps truth, and as suggested by US Supreme Court Justice Roberts, regarding people lying about their military service, I will counter speech that is false with speech that is truth.”
    She just followed up with:
    “I have no problem with you telling anyone about the truth. I could have told you myself but my son is innocent. And by asking you to be respectful I am just asking that he not be involved. Anyone who can gather the information you have can also obtain additional information – including about my son. That’s all I’m saying. Don’t get your panties in a wad. I knew this day was coming for years and I’m surprised it took this long.”
