Terry O’Neill; phony SEAL

| April 24, 2018

Someone sent us their work on this Terrance O’Neill fellow. Folks tell us how he can’t go two minutes without bragging about his time in Vietnam when he was a Navy SEAL. For example, there’s this article from a few years ago when Francis “Frank” Lamantia Spivey, a friend of Terry’s was shot by Las Vegas police when he carelessly discharged a weapon a number of times during a standoff with police.

Terry O’Neil, a U.S Navy veteran, said he wasn’t afraid because he had three combat tours of duty during his 22 years of service.

Terry did an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and they took pictures of him wearing an Army Combat Action Badge cap and a SEAL T-shirt;

He tried to get Clint Eastwood to make a movie about his book (that I couldn’t find on the internet)

It looks like O’Neill was aboard the USS Kirk, a frigate, FF-1087, in April, 1975 when it participated in Operation Eagle Pull, the evacuation of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of Saigon, Vietnam.

He was an SH3 an E-4 Ship’s serviceman. Ship’s servicemen manage barber shops, tailor shops, ships’ uniform stores, laundries, dry cleaning plants and cobbler shops. They serve as clerks in exchanges, gas stations, warehouses, and commissary stores. Some ship’s servicemen function as Navy club managers. You know, just like a Navy SEAL. Somehow, a Combat Action Ribbon appeared in his records. Certainly not an Army Combat Action Badge.

No SEAL training, no SEAL assignments. I hear he now sports a dyed black mustache and a soul patch these days.

    Oh, not another Faker Navy Seal!!!!

    I’ll fix some sandwiches, and the chips are in the cupboard. Anyone who wants anything stronger than tea or coffee, bring it yourself, because I am NOT paying for your bad habits.

    And make sure you wear that special pair of boots. It is going to get deep in here.

    • Ex-PH2 - photolab tech, film editor, & proud of it says:

      Unless there’s something I missed, he ended is distinguished career as SH1, not HS3.

      HS is Hospital Steward and/or Heath Services Tech.

      • IDC SARC says:

        Health Services Tech is what HMs are called in the Coast Guard. Not the Navy.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        OH, noes! The pdf list is out of date!! I’m sorry, SARC. Not enough caffeine yet.


        They have PH on that list as Photographers Mate, too, PHAR as Pharmacist.

        • Some Guy says:

          Against my better judgement (and out of morbid curiosity) I took a quick look at this 69 page-long(!) document to better understand naval ranks. But when the first three entries contain ‘Boy One’ and ‘First Captain of the Tops’ (didn’t find Captain of the bottoms, though ;)), I can’t continue in good faith. Praise the maker for the simple Army rank structure!

  2. IDC SARC says:

    Navy SEALs, when skivvies need to be their whitest.

    • Ex-PH2 - photolab tech, film editor, & proud of it says:

      Yeah, the mama-sans were good at finding rocks to use to pound the laundry down by the riverside.

      • IDC SARC says:

        When aboard ship I appreciated the heck out of those Sailors that picked up and delivered my laundry. Same for the messcranks assigned to the CPO Mess, awesome workers.

  3. Sapper3307 says:

    You don’t see that many CAB’s from Nam, salute(one finger).

    • SFC D says:

      I knew the CAB was retroactive when it was approved, but I had no clue it went all the way to Viet of the Nam. Maybe he got a waiver? 😉

  4. OldManchu says:

    A seal with a CAB instead of a CAR. Happens all the time.

  5. USAF RET says:

    Man, I’d love to have the hat/shirt/patch/car sticker concession for these assholes. I’d be NFL-rich.

    • Mason says:

      I’ll start a booth next to yours that sells leather vests.

    • Combat3c0 says:

      I will be in the next booth over renting/selling motorcycles!

    • 26Limabeans says:

      I’ll open a poodle shop next door for their comfort dog.

    • Mick says:

      And I’ll open a trendy poser boutique that specializes in doo-rags, service dog accessories, dumbass-looking white-framed wrap-around mirror-lens sunglasses, and the full range of metal military insignia and badges of the armed forces, to include those of the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

      There will also be a literature and stationery section in my trendy poser boutique, where the Official TAH Poser 101 Handbook and assorted blank valor award certificates will be on prominent display.

      As an added benefit to our poser clientele, I will also be offering a special 10% discount to any posers who have earned the combination of the CAR, CIB, Naval Aviator wings, and the prestigious Department of Transportation Outstanding Unit Award.*

      *Proof of service required.

    Dear Terrance,

    Thank you for your submission but I regret that I will not be able to produce your story. However, I will soon begin production of a film that includes certain US Navy scenes, requiring your considerable expertise. If you are interested, please let my wardrobe assistant know so that he can provide you with the 136 pairs of dress shoes that need to be spit polished by July 15th.

    Yours truly.

    “Plugman”…more like plugee.

  8. Non Cedo Ferio says:

    Clints first crack at the big screen was playing a Sailor. Uncredited in. Francis in the Navy. Alongside Donald O Connor.

  9. 26Limabeans says:

    Giant letters over the award on the hat.
    Because nobody would know what it is unless you make it perfectly clear.

    • rgr1480 says:

      Welll in all fairness …. the Combat Action Badge has got to be the worst badge the army ever developed. You can’t really tell what the component parts are from a short distance

      Since they were modeling it after the Sturmabzeichen with the grenade, bayonet, and wreath … you’d think at least they’d have crossed bayonets since the baseball grenade is obscure. And maybe an eagle’s head between the two.


      • rgr1480 says:

        Oops, full name is *Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen*

      • 26Limabeans says:

        I think it looks goofy. The giant bayonet gives the impression that the person is a Kung Foo knife master and will cut you with just a glance.

  10. AW1Ed says:

    Terrance O’Neill is a phony SEAL.
    Terrance O’Neill is a liar.
    Terrance O’Neill is a disgrace.

    Welcome to your new Google fame, Terry. The inerwebs are forever.

    • USAF RET says:

      You know, AW1Ed, you are right,
      Terrance O’Neill is a phony SEAL.
      Terrance O’Neill is a liar.
      Terrance O’Neill is a disgrace.

      • Roh-Dog says:

        Are you referring to Terrance George O’Neill, who may have gone by the name Terrance O’Neill and/or Terry O’Neill?
        I heard that Terrance O’Neill may have lived in Albany New York and enlisted into the U.S. Navy from that location. While in the Navy Terrance O’Neill was not a member of the prestigious SeALs even though Terrance O’Neill has claimed to be a SEAL. Did you know that while in Las Vegas Terrance O’Neill who served in the Navy wore a hat with a Combat Action Badge, which is an Army badge?

        • NECCSEBEECPO says:

          I wear a hat OD green with a CAB on it. I never served in Army but have the CAB listed on my DD214 and NDAWS, plus page 4. There have been many Sailors that have a CAB, just had it converted, or not. So they can claim they have one. Now this jack ass NO. Note they can not wear on uniform unless assigned with Army and or Army JTF and wearing Army uniform.

          This is not and was not meant to be a Army only badge.
          Award of the CAB is not limited by one’s branch or military occupational specialty; however, to receive the CAB, a Soldier must not be assigned or attached to a unit that would qualify the Soldier for the CIB or CMB.

          • Roh-Dog says:

            Thanks for the clarification.
            I Infantry. I no read POG awards manuel. Make brayn hurted.

  11. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Today is Tuesday and it looks like the seals are getting a late start this week. i wonder if I should shit can my O’Neill body surfing shirt.

  12. Combat Historian says:

    This POS is so full of shit that he needs a size XXL pooper-scooper for basic self-cleaning…

  13. MK75Gunner says:

    What a sad sack of shit. You served on the USS Kirk and took part in some operations that were memorialized in film and are part of Navy lore. Instead of being rightfully proud of being part of that crew you took a giant shit on them. Fuck you, shitbag. NPR, whom I generally loathe, did an excellent documentary on this Ship, “Forgotten Ship: A Daring Rescue as Saigon Fell”.


    • AW1Ed says:

      From the article:

      In the documentary, Donald Cox, who was an Aviation Antisubmarine Warfare Operator 3rd Class aboard USS Kirk during the evacuation, spoke about the operation.

      “Combat wasn’t what was needed,” said Cox. “It was a heart and hand that was needed. We didn’t recognize that at first, we just did our jobs.”

      First generation of my rating- big flight boots to fill.

  14. MK75Gunner says:

    USS Kirk, a Chinook, and a leap of faith.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      How many helicopters are at the bottom of the sea offshore from Saigon?


      • Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

        I heard that when the OKIE 3 was involved in the evacuation, the helos were pushed overboard to make room for the other helos coming in so I can imagine that there were a lot of helos coming in with the evacutees and room had to be made for them.

    • Mason says:

      I was always inspired by the story of RVN Maj. Buang who loaded his family up in his O-1 Bird Dog (Cessna 170-based so a small plane) and flew out to sea hoping to find a USN ship. Landed it right on the deck of the Midway.

      I can’t imagine the desperation to drive someone to do that.

      • rgr769 says:

        His desperation was motivated the knowledge the commies were likely to murder him, like they did in Hue to everyone they could who supported the RVN government.

  15. Berliner says:

    Saw 1988 training as a plugman. Then there is the picture of him with his index finger extended. I believe in the photo he was demonstrating what he did at lights out, starting out with just one finger.

  16. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:


  17. Club Manager, USA ret. says:

    If he was a Navy Club Manager, which I seriously doubt because he was on a ship, he may have qualified for a combat action badge and maybe a Purple Heart for having his balls busted over small shit by Commander’s wives, Master Chiefs and the like. Just sayin.

    • IDC SARC says:

      Some things they just never pay ya enough to put up with.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      Not just Commanders Wives, Field Grade Officer Wives are often good at making themselves a pain in multiple asses at once.

      • UpNorth says:

        So are the wives of promotable Captains, who just know that they’re about to make that leap to field grade wife.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Yeah, the base skipper’s wife came into the E-Club at NAS Sigonella while the DJ was playing “The Rodeo Song,” and that was the last time we heard it there. No sense of humor at all. NSFW lyrics:

  18. Ret_25X says:

    He kind of reminds me of Code Name “Dumb Ass”.

    That said, he could also be Code Name “Half Ass”, “Ass Hole”, or even “Ass Hat”.

    What ever code name he uses, he was never a SEAL, never a Soldier, but always an ass.

  19. Atkron says:

    Fuck you Terry O’Neil

  20. JimV says:

    No service dog? 😲

  21. Thunderstixx says:

    I ran out of insults and stupid monikers for these clowns…

  22. rgr769 says:

    Just wow! Even before he joined the Navy in 1967, he was captured in 1964 in Cambodia and spent 2 years as a POW. He musta done those two years in captivity instead of junior and senior year in high school. Three combat tours in the Viet of the Nam, and the SEALs recruited him from the ranks of the elite Navy stores clerks. Where do we get such men?

  23. Green Thumb says:

    Not the real deal, Terry O’Niell….

  24. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Wino scrotum sniffing gerbil turd.

    • rgr769 says:

      Too bad we can’t have a reporter interview his gerbil, but then few reporters speak gerbil. Although, some are likely very familiar with gerbils.

  25. E4 Mafia For Life. says:

    The Army Combat Action Badge is awarded to service members who engaged in combat after 2001.
    It was meant to acknowledge non-infantry persons.
    Armor and Artillery were left out.
    The CIB was created in 1943 to increase the prestige for ground pounders. SOmething to recognize that they were not bottom of the barrel.
    Any soldier that had been in combat prior to 2001 but not 11 series gets nothing.
    I was a 19D and fought in Iraq and Kuwait. I don’t get that award.
    Efforts have been made over the years to award this retroactively – including the stipulation that those eligible would pay for their own badge – but DOD and Congress said tough shit. We don’t have the resources to go back thru 60 years of spotty records to update service members records, issue DD-215’s blah blah blah.
    No, I don’t need it.
    I’m proud of my service, don’t have an ego to feed.
    And, I have my Stetson, gold spurs and Order Of The Combat Spur. That’s the real heritage for Cavalry.

  26. E4 Mafia For Life. says:

    Correction. I meant to say Armor and Artillery were not elligible for the CIB.

  27. USAFRetired says:

    How does a guy with 15+ years Navy enlisted only have Good Conduct Medals?

    • MSGT_RET says:

      I see 2 NAMs on there. The Navy doesn’t award Commendation and Achievement Medals as liberally as they do in the Air Force.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Has to do with broken service. It used to be 4 years for a GCM and they had to be consecutive time in service. Then it was changed later to 3 years,

      • Hondo says:

        Broken service doesn’t completely explain his only having 2 GCMs, Ex-PH2. Even with 4 consecutive years service required, based on the info in his FOIA he should have three GCMs.

        He has 2 periods of service that should have resulted in GCMs under the old Navy “4 years consecutive” rules. The first was 5 Feb 74 to 14 Dec 83; the second, 4 Aug 86 to 31 Aug 92.

        The first period was nearly 10 years duration and should have resulted in him receiving 2 GCMs. The second period was over 6 years duration and should have resulted in his receiving a third GCM.

        Something had to have happened to preclude him receiving one GCM he otherwise should have been awarded.

  28. Ex-PH2 says:

    It seems to me that this guy had a good career, retired as an SH1/E-6, went places I never got to see and had plenty to tell in the way of sea stories. But he just had to go and ruin it by making stuff up.

    For shame!

    If you’re going to tell sea stories, stick to that. It can be quite interesting, even if you’re just the mess cook on a diesel submarine.

    “There I was, cleaning up the last bits of this and that in the galley. We were dead in the water at 450 feet. Someone started making whale noises. It was so real, it even had me fooled….”

    you guys dont need to worry about my uncle, because of this article he had a stroke and die,Great Job keep the good work ,He was bury with full miltary honors, Oh everything that is in this blog is here say, The news paper article did not state he was a seal, and as for the hat ,his grand daughter gave that to him, so he did not want to hurt her feelings, Go after the Ron Oneills who made millions for lieing God bless everyone

    • OWB says:

      wHATever. While I am willing to cut a bit of slack to anyone in the throes of raw grief, you just don’t get a complete pass. You also can’t expect lies to go unnoticed.

      Hint: If you want to be taken seriously, try writing coherently with a modicum of attention to punctuation, sentence structure, and use of caps. (No, none of us is perfect and stray typos happen to all of us. Your screed went out into indecipherable blathering.)

    • Animal says:

      It’s a little early to be on the sauce.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      JUST how many tubes of plastic model glue and how many cans of spray paint did you huff before you posted that blob of unintelligible drivel? I have cut farts that were far more intelligent than that after eating MRE’s and I could shit something far more intelligible and coherent than that after eating only half a can of Alphabet Soup!

    • IDC SARC says:

      “hE HAD 5 TOUR OF SEA DUTY .”

      That’s cute.

  31. Jarhead says:

    Faith…Best thing this web site can do for you is enroll you in a Remedial GED course. We are all sorry for your Uncle’s passing, but find it indefensible that any mention of his service suggested him being a SEAL. Had you spent some time on this web site previously, you’d know a “tell” for a military phony is running his mouth constantly about all his war stories. Even you or other family members suggesting Uncle Bullshitartist worked ALONG a SEAL team is an insult to every TAH contributor. You’d have best served yourself by never coming on to this web site expecting any sympathy or pardon for a bunch of lies. You could have placed yourself in the same make believe life as your Uncle by telling us you were a college graduate.

  32. Faith says:

    My Uncle was not a phony like you mention, you got his record. He was RET from the Navy so let well enough go, get a live and grow a pair ! You are Knocking down a highly decorated VET that did received a combat action ribbon and 2 NAM plus other awards. ,Let my uncle rest in peace. You have to have alot of time and hate on your time , and for the rest that think they know my uncle just move on with your life and fine the real phonies that was not in service and did not spent time in War. I do have photos of my Uncle with ACU2 , SEAL TEAM 2, BOTH TOGETHER , Remember this web site kills people, It killed my UNCLE

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I see that you cut back on huffing model airplane glue and spray paint before posting here this time!

  33. Faith says:

    Hello Im Faith I have made posts on here before, This will be my finale one. While the direct cause of Death of my Uncle Ter is a Blood clog in the brain , The medical report came back saying he had early alzheimers ,That is most likely why he mention Seals instead of ACU2/SBU2 .Who that have said words on here remember the ST LOUIS defense DEPT RECORD CENTER FIRE?Anyone.Well my Uncle was going back into service but did not have his DD214 IN 1974 , I think the fire was in 1972 or 1973 ,The record center had his records out and most of his records got destroy . His DD 214 and some of the records that Jonn has requested is all they have . I hope this is not the same Jonn that work for DTA in Vegas. Uncle Ter mention your Name. Well getting back on track, This is why you guys do not have all of the facts. Maybe just maybe in this case you have a highly decorated Vets that just got a bad deal. I always look at out Vets as the bests of the bests, Knowing that everyone was highly trained and then you come home , mean , angry , hurting , narrow minded. This web site. or Blog is a perfect example of Hate. I look at the Seals and Rangers etc of today and I see weak minded people. Like I mention before the Hat Uncle Ter has on he knew was not correct but he wore it because he did not want to hurt his Grand Daughter feelings, I have pictures of my uncle when he was TAD with ACU2 / SEAL TEAM 2 /SBU 2 . your records are not intact.. It does not show the Letter he received from the Governor of CALF. when he ret in 1992. Now being weak minded you guys will come back calling me names because that the only thing you know what to do. My uncle is dead, because of your blog, My Aunt is losing her home, You guys dont know where my uncle received the COMBAT ACTION RIBBON . Records from 1964 until 1966 is weak at the most and missing details So with all of this said, I hope and pray that when you fine another Phony like you guys all mention , You go knock on the family door and yell at the wife and tell them that their love one is a phony, But in my uncle case he was a Highly Decorated War Vets and this blog can not take that away from our family. And for anyone that knew Uncle Ter Im disappointed in you for not emailing his Wife my Aunt. Oh one blogger on here said MY UNCLE got the Combat Action while on ship , No Ships in Nam received the Combat Action Ribbon, Just room for thought, and please stop the name calling , This I find is very unprofessional of highly trained killers / HAPPY 4TH

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      Yeah, we heard about the records center fire. Hondo wrote about it here. O’Neil’s records weren’t affected. If his records ere destroyed, how did we get them?

    • 26Limabeans says:

      “look at the Seals and Rangers etc of today and I see weak minded people”

      You just lost everyone that ever served.

    • IDC SARC says:

      I work with today’s Marine Raiders, SEALS, Rangers and SF every day. I served for 24 years and was an Independent Duty Recon Corpsman.

      These men are in a word, awesome.

      Where have you derived your opinion Faith? What have you done?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Gotta watch out for them thar blood clogs. I was able to read through that drivel with a loss of less than 10 IQ points, a real first for me, and he got a letter from the Governor of CALF, where is that, is it one of the moons orbiting Hoth?

  34. NHSparky says:

    Seems “brain clogs” are common in your family, Faith.

    Better you have them checked out.

  35. AnotherPat says:

    Is this you, Terry, writing all this mish-mash?

    When and where did you pass away, Terry/Faith?

    When and where is Terry/Faith buried? You have a Coroner’s report with date/time of death?

    Care to share with us his medical report as well as the name of the Doctor and the hospital?

    Until then, I do not believe you are dead. You are using a symphathy ruse that is not going to work.

    Best you be a MAN and tell us the truth.

  36. Skidmark says:

    Terry O’Neil has been spotted attached by his rear end to a transgender persons man part and they’re masquerading as conjoined twins. The hard part to believe is the person he’s attached to isn’t white and claims to be a Green Beret that served in the Martian Colonial Wars of 2098, but I do believe it due to Terry’s incredible war record as a highly decorated SEAL. I wonder why the conjoined twin was never mentioned before, it’s probably because his records were also lost in the fire.

  37. Bobo says:

    Funny, I can’t seem to find a recent obit for a Terry O’Neill. Maybe Faith can send us a link so we’d know where to send donations?

  38. Faith says:

      Maybe you should reach out to Daniel Bernath, Esquire. He has managed to get hundreds of thousands of dollars awarded in his disputes with This Ain’t Hell. Of course, those hundreds of thousands of dollars did not go to his side in the disputes.

    • Hondo says:

      I get the feeling “Faith” above has not researched the term “public record information” as it applies to military records and Freedom of Information Act requests for same.

      It’s also obvious the same is true about “Faith” and copyright laws regarding US government documents.

      Here’s a clue for you, “Faith”: ya just might want to do both before you consult a lawyer. You just might save yourself a chunk of money.

    Hello Jonn owner of 

    By Law im putting you and your bloggers on notice, You had infringe copyrights Laws and did not get permission to post my uncle records., Also it has come to my attention that You and some of the rest of the bloggers are in fact never been in the Military. You had the right to get my Uncle records but you did not get all, because he was going to enlist in the Air Force in 1973 but as you can read the records got burn, The Navy took him back when they restore his DD2104. 
    Im asking everyone that said derogatory comments to take them down, If you refuse to apply your name and handle will be included in the COPYRIGHTS law suit. So the question I have to ask everyone is HOW MUCH MONEY is my Uncle Family going to get from everyone. Jonn the owner of this class act blog ,Lets see your military record or are you a real Phony. Ill give you until Monday to take this blogg down or Ill see you in court

      • Ret_25X says:

        Records are not archived until after you leave the service. Therefore, a person in the military in 1973 would not have records in the archive in 1974.

        You aren’t even trying with that lame canard.

        Your uncle owes all of us a debt he can never pay for being a phony.

        Only a moron believes that screaming insults detracts from the original charge.

      Hey “Cindy McCoy” (same comment left on the Book of Face post above)… you’re barking up the wrong tree. You’re going to look real foolish (and be out some money) if you go through with this legal nonsense. Just Google “Daniel A. Bernath” to find out.

      • sj says:

        Jonn’s Bernath Bucks ride has some years on it now and TSO’s hot dog suit is probably fraying a bit. Some “Faith/Cindy Bucks” might be welcomed.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          I don’t believe the woman posting from the Cindy McCoy FB page is Cindy McCoy. Two reasons. First, no one who is that old can be that stupid. Years ago, kids who made it through grade school well knew how to write simple sentences with correct grammar and punctuation. Second, “Faith” refers to O’Neill as her uncle and although it’s possible for an uncle to be as old or even older than his neice, it’s unlikely. My money says Faith is posting from a relative’s account and is probably living in that person’s basement.

      As a Southerner, I only have 5 words for you- well, bless your heart, sweetie.

    • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

      Don’t forget to add mine to your copyrights lawsuit, faith.

      Your uncle is a lying POS. You must be proud…


    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      HEY “faith”, maybe you should take some classes and learn an English Composition level above that of a third grader which I assume is the level you reached before you dropped out of school to go on welfare.

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        Just clicked on a few links… “faith” has a 9th grade education and a “criminal law” degree.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          She obviously has no clue how many others have said the same thing and have FAILED to get posts taken down from TAH. Will she end up being Psulian, Bernathian or a combination of both? She does display a Dutch Rudder Gang level of a grip on reality!

    • Bobo says:

      Can someone please let me know if they see one correctly structured sentence in that diatribe?

      You know, I’d go out of my way to rely on the legal advice of someone who has an obvious limited understanding and knowledge of the English language.

      BTW, your (theoretically) deceased uncle is a lying shite stain. Can you please add me to your “COPRRIGHTS law suit?” I haven’t been mentioned in a TAH lawsuit since Psul decided to run a similar attempt.

      • ChipNASA says:

        Damn it was going to post something like that.

        OK Terry/Faith/Cindy, I’m just going to leave this right here because, from what I can see posted above, this is *right* up your alley and I, no doubt, have every confidence, that you will completely understand this.

    • Hondo says:

      (sigh) “Teh stoopid” plus “teh stubborne” is a particularly unfortunate combination.

      Let me give you some unsolicited advice, “Faith”. Before you consult a lawyer – which you would almost certainly need to do in order to file a lawsuit – you might want to do a bit of research. I’d suggest you focus that research on the following:

      a. Defamation and truth as a defense against same.
      b. Copyright protections for US government documents.
      c. Public record information as applied to stored or archived military records.
      d. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests concerning military records.
      e. The legal concepts of “standing” and “discovery” as applied to civil suits.

      Lawyers are generally fairly expensive. And often, they want a retainer (e.g., payment) up-front before they’ll talk to you.

      Research, on the other hand, only takes some of your time. Should you take the time, I’m pretty sure that this is what you will find about items a through d above (I’m not going to discuss e. since both topics are fairly complex and best left to a lawyer to explain):

      a. Truth is an absolute defense against defamation claims.

      b. A document that qualifies as a “work of the US government” in general has no copyright protection. FYI: military records in long-term storage meet the definition of a “work of the US government”; they were prepared by an employee of the US government (e.g., by a member of the military) as a part of their official duties.

      c. While some information in a person’s military record is protected by the Privacy Act, much is not. In fact, a surprising amount of information in a person’s stored military records (or their federal civilian employment records, for that matter) is considered public record information. A list of that public record information can be found here:


      If the military records in question are archival (e.g., more than 62 years have passed since the individual’s final discharge from the military), the individual’s entire military record on file with the US government is considered public record information.

      d. The information that is public record information in a person’s military records is releasable on demand to anyone who requests it. The consent of the individual concerned is not required.

      • rgr769 says:

        In 36 years of practicing law, I never took or knew of any attorney taking a defamation case solely on a contingent fee basis. So, “Faith” or whatever your name is, better start saving money for your attorney’s fee advance.

    • MrBill says:

      A COPYRIGHTS lawsuit?

      My dear, I believe you misspelled “COPROPHAGIA”.

    • rgr769 says:

      Hey lady (and I use the term loosely), if you are threatening a civil action, you should find a lawer (sp) who knows lawsuit is one word. Also, most of us here have served in the military, some for over 20 years. Also, many of us actually served in combat in Vietnam, unlike your POSer uncle. Some even actually earned our combat commendations and awards, unlike your POSer uncle. Your uncle sat at a radar console on a ship, staring at a radar screen, during a time when there were no Navy personnel in combat in Vietnam. Feel free to sue us; we just hope your homeowner’s insurance is paid up so we can collect after you “law suit” is dismissed.

      • rgr769 says:

        I’m sorry “Faith.” I had your purported uncle confused with another of our phony SEAL’s; he was not a radarman, but had an even more non-combat related job in the Navy; he was a ships’ stores man.

  43. sj says:

    Jonn was never in the military? Damn. Sure fooled me all these years. /sarc, of course/

    What’s a “DD2104”? I was never in the military apparently.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Look, when your caught your caught and you may as well lay the cards on the table. As for me, Faith, I was never in the American military, but I did serve in the Pontifical Swiss Guard. I figured that if I wrote the truth about that, I might not be welcome here. (Some of these commenters don’t like Catholics!) It’s not easy for me to admit it, but I respect your efforts and wish you success. Ah, it feels good to tell the truth.

    Have been holding on to this info.

    Cindy McCoy is Terrance’s wife.

    She was a Roller Derby Queen:


    “Last year, McCoy and her husband, Terrance O’Neill, moved to Las Vegas, and are hoping to find a producer for a movie version of “Hell on Wheels.”

    Her and Terry have been trying to make a movie of her based on her book “Hell on Wheels” (When you click the link and scroll thru the pictures, you will see Terry with his dyed black mustache and gootee)


    “She and her husband have been working on the movie project now for 10 years and the momentum is picking up. The screenplay was recently completed by Tina Howe. McCoy hopes to sell the screenplay soon.

    “I feel people can relate to my story,” she said. “The movie tells people to follow their hearts and don’t give up.”

    If the movie gets made, it would be called, “Beyond All Odds, the Cindy McCoy Story.”

    She even has folks picked out to play her in her movie “Beyond All Odds: The Cindy Morgan Story:


    And here is the teaser to her movie:

    And here is where you can buy her book:



    And every great movie has a Soundtrack!


    There’s more folks, if you wish to see!

    • USAF (Ret) says:

      It has been a long time, but I might have seen her skate. My father used to take me to watch Roller Derby all of time back then when he was home. Being in the Navy he was gone a lot.

    • rgr769 says:

      Maybe that is where Terrance met her, at band camp. All the really hot romances start at band camp.

  45. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Ewer/You’re/Your. Replace as needed.

  46. AnotherPat says:

    Cindy McCoy is Terry’s wife.

    She is a former Roller Derby Queen:


    She had a book written about her life:


    And of course, if you have the book, you have the movie:


    And with the movie, you have a soundtrack:


    And with all movies, you have a teaser:

    And there is this Denver Post article that mentions Terrance”


    And if you want to see Terrance with his Dyed Black Mustache and Goatee, go to this site and scroll thru the pictures:

      You need to change your name to BullDog.

    • Skidmark says:

      The intro to the video looks like it was written by a Middle Eastern man named “Phil”, while on the phone trying to steal all your hard earned money. The words used don’t make sense, I’m pretty sure one isn’t even a real word, how can that be a professional edit? I’m :13 in and not positive I want to continue watching.

  47. ChipNASA says:


    Does 5/6 weeks between posting this and sockpuppets coming round count as a “Zombie Thread?”

    Maybe a “Baby Zombie” thread?

    /Just spit balling

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Let’s see, “faith” claims that Terrance O’Neill the phony SEAL is dead from a “Blood clog in the brain” [sic] and she’s a’ gonna sue if this ain’t removed, how many times have threats of legal action gotten a post removed from TAH in the past? Uuhhhhhm let’s see, zero?
      It looks like this post about Terrance O’Neill the bogus SEAL is going to stay no matter how much “faith” screeches and makes herself look even more dumbass.
      Is Terrance O’Neill the phony SEAL actually deceased or is it yet more bullshit? I don’t think anyone has found an obituary for Terrance O’Neill the phony SEAL, I think “faith” has quite a “Brain clog” that will likely get even more entertaining here on this thread about Terrance O’Neill the phony SEAL.

  48. Roh-Dog says:

    Faith, babe, sweetheart… it looks like we got off on the wrong foot here. I don’t speak for the group but I’d like to ensure you of one thing, the group is most likely very, very sorry….
    Sorry that your POS ‘uncle’, Terrance George O’Neill, is a LIAR! Terrance George O’Neill was NEVER a SEAL.
    Eat it.

  49. AnotherPat says:

    What kind of person posts their picture holding a smartphone under “condolences/guestbook” for someone’s obituary?

    (Hint-he is sporting a black mustache and a goatee and goes by the name Terry):


    Narcissism at its best…Dude has self image problems/self esteem problems.

  50. OWB says:

    Some good legal advice thrown up by regular commenters here. Would like to add that “faith” also research what a blog is, what bloggers are, and how bloggers differ from commenters.

    Might want to give some thought to whether Terry is her cousin, brother, uncle and/or husband. Even if it makes no difference to the lawer, it just might impact how the jury views him/her/it/them.
