Daniel Clay Cheatham in the news

| April 12, 2018 | 32 Comments

Back in February, we busted Daniel Clay Cheatham with the work of our partners at Military Phonies. Cheatham had claimed to be an Army Ranger because somehow that made him a better yoga dude – he hadn’t even completed Basic Combat Training. Today, the Casey County News reports that veterans in his area are asking for an apology;

They say this is a case of “Stolen Valor.”

A website run by Ambrosia Wellness, which was formerly located in Liberty but is now in Danville, had a biography for Cheatham.

The biography claimed several martial arts belts, certifications in yoga and fitness programs, but perhaps its largest claim was that Cheatham served and was injured during a deployment.

“Clay served in the US ARMY 75th Ranger Regiment where his back was broken in duty. He was paralyzed and told he would never walk again. Determined, he rehabilitated and recovered almost completely. Clay is living proof that there is healing in Yoga. … Corporal Cheatham has put his body through the ultimate tests; serving in battle in Afghanistan,” the website stated.

The Casey County News requested documents from the U.S. Army that showed that Cheatham was discharged from the military after six months. Cheatham never attended Ranger school, and did not attain the rank of Corporal.

His records don’t support his claims;

Nice to have the media on our side for a change.

    Ironically the phrase “long lost sister” were uttered on TV right as I rolled onto that picture above. I was struck by the coincidence.

    “Cheatham never attended Ranger school, and did not attain the rank of Corporal.” But he he is a genuine, 100% fancy boy.

    Here’s a link to his prior TAH fame:


    The interwebs are forever.

    He should stop wearing headbands and make up his mind which gender he occupies.

    So much for his dream of being a partner in the world’s greatest law firm: Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe


    I wonder if he is friends with RuPaul???

    Cheatham declined to comment on the issue, but his wife Sarah Cheatham said that the issue should have been resolved when the biography was taken down.

    Actually, Sarah Cheatham, the issue will not be resolved until Daniel Clay Cheatham, phony Army Ranger, phony Afghanistan Veteran, does two things. First, he apologizes for his phony veteran related claims. Second, in addition to apologizing to the veteran community for his phony war veteran, and phony Army Ranger claims, he needs to commit to not to make phony claims related to his military service… With action.

    Once both of those conditions are met, then you could talk about this issue being “resolved”. In the meantime, these posts about him, and his phony claims, will remain on the Internet for all to read. This will be the case regardless of whether he apologizes or not.

    • OWB says:

      It’s not resolved until those he wronged say it is resolved. Really. It’s just that simple.

      His actions caused the problem. Only he can take action to correct the situation. Others doing things on his behalf aren’t helpful, and they certainly do not resolve anything.

      Only Daniel Clay Cheatham can take the steps necessary to begin to resolve this. It will never be fully resolved because he must continue to NOT behave badly. That cannot be determined until time has past.

    Rangers up at the TAH starting gate. Win, place or show???????

  16. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Oh well, he can always fall back on his experience as Assistant Towel Boy at Brucie’s Bath House (Entrance In Rear) to get his Busboy/Booth Wiper job back at The Blue Oyster.

  17. HMC Ret says:

    Sorry, Sarah, that’s not how this works. Those who have been wronged get to call off the hounds when the matter is resolved to their satisfaction. The party committing the transgression doesn’t have a say in the matter except to make apology, swear there will be no repeat, and disappear.
