Lyn Jon Cree; phony Marine

| July 11, 2018

Someone sent us their work on this fellow Lyn Jon Cree, from Dothan, Alabama, who tells perspective clients for his home remodeling business that he’s a retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant. This photo was on his social media page;

It looks like he photoshopped his gourd on a photo of Master Gunnery Sergeant Scott H. Stalker;

The National Personnel Records Center and the Navy replied to a FOIA inquiry with the query “Who?”

    That’s a dreadful Photoshop. What a loser.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      Actually, the real photo looks photo shopped too. This is Bernathian-level stuff. I wonder does Cree have a pilot’s license–or even a home re-modeler’s license.

      • Poetrooper says:

        Cav, that’s an official Defense Intelligence Agency photo so it’s likely the real deal. It’s probably just that naturally unnatural look that Jarheads have to us old Airborne Troopers.

        Take Dave Hardin for instance…

    • OldManchu says:

      Do we have a replacement for the deceased lawn dart with those photoshop skillz?

    • SidneyBroadshead says:

      If you look at the photo, the corny watermark from Face-Switch, the cheap photo-editing program Lyn John Cree used to forge it, is in the upper left-hand corner. Face-Switch Bernaths an image of a couch-potato’s face onto a picture of a much more accomplished person’s body.

      Lyn Jon Cree is a lazy rube. Lyn Jon Cree is not (nor has ever been) a Marine.

      “Every man thinks meanly of himself for not having been a soldier, or not having been at sea. […] “…the profession of soldiers and sailors has the dignity of danger. Mankind reverence those who have got over fear, which is so general a weakness.” – Samuel Johnson. _The Life of Samuel Johnson_ James Boswell (1791)

      If one looking at that photo-shopped pic of this douche canoe doesn’t see his head has been photo shopped, one should promptly see an eye doc.

  2. Daisy Cutter says:

    Looks like SNIPER and RECON tabs on that vest as well.

    Why choose one when you can just claim both?

  3. Non Cedo Ferio says:

    Sounds more like Lyin’ Jon Cree. Just sayin

  4. Doc Savage says:

    Bernath reincarnated??

    Would you want this lying scumbag remodeling your home?

    This phony lying fuck’s “home remodeling business” needs to be put out of business ASAP…

  8. Roh-Dog says:

    So Lyn Jon Cree, from Dothan, Alabama is a liar?
    Lyn Jon Cree of Dothan, Alabama never served as a United States Marine?
    Lyn Jon Cree, a home renovation business owner around Dothan Alabama falsified information about serving in the military?
    Truly a sad time for Lyn Jon Cree, from Dothan, Alabama…

  9. MSG Eric says:

    I read that the first couple times as “lyin” Jon Cree. I figured maybe Jonn started using Trump naming conventions for fakers.

    Might as well be lyin though. It fits.

  10. Chuck says:

    a google of his name and home repair dothan Al brings his biz address and #

  11. Combat Historian says:

    Somebody needs to tell the DIA that their actual Senior Enlisted Leader is some dude named Lyn Jon Cree…///

  12. Mason says:

    If that photoshop job is any indication of his craftsmanship, I wouldn’t trust him to install a light bulb.

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    I always wonder what these clowns were doing to explain their absence from home during their years of make-believe service. Were they all in prison?

  14. Green Thumb says:

    What a clown.

  16. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    HEY Lyn Jon Cree, the Internet is forever, GO GOOGLE YOURSELF and find out, enjoy your newfound fame, Lyn Jon Cree’!!!

  17. 26Limabeans says:

    CREEpy photo with that mystery hand.

    • 2/17 Air Cav says:

      That’s what happens when a guy who pretends to be a Marine loses his hand and has it reattached by a guy pretending to be a surgeon.

  18. OldManchu says:

    No dog? Pfft. Obviously a fake.

  19. Ho hum Jon Cree, just another fluffee wannabe fake Marine, sniper, recon, LRRP, Seal, Green beret, Ranger, airborne, PJ, flash ace pilot, secretion specialist 1st class & operator of space shuttle defensive systems, LOOK OUT Roll over Chesty & John B, that their Jonny Cree is a supa marine, according too him.

    And YET, he never even went to any basic training of any kind from any branch of the military ? not once did he cross any of those thresholds.


  20. radar says:

    Real MGySgts absolutely have hair that long, with sideburns. Looks legit to me.

  21. 100E says:

    Not all who wear biker vests are posers, but all posers own biker vests. Boonie Caps, usually with lots of hanging awards and badges, are also in fashion.

  22. BlueCord Dad says:

    Google this maroons name and his TAH entry is the first thing you see. Should do wonders for his business…

  23. 2banana says:

    His head is way too small for the body he photoshopped onto…

  24. Mick says:

    Oh FFS.

    — sigh —

    And here I was having a reasonably good day until I saw this poser’s bullshit.

    It’s always ‘Sniper’ and ‘Recon’ with these shitbirds.

  25. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    How about issuing a DECree to stop this guy from posing as a Marine.

  26. HMC Ret says:

    Hey, dimwit, how do you plan to explain this to prospective customers when they Google you and see you’re a lying wannabe? Seems honesty would be really important when hiring someone to do work on one’s house. Could be wrong.

    Oh, yeah, how you plan explaining this to your children, grandchildren, significant other? Gonna be a bitch.

    Sucks to be you.

  27. HMC Ret says:

    I can’t take this guy seriously w/o a mutt and a Harley. Oh, and shades. You could have them balanced on your cover. What does your cover say, BTW? Death Before Dishonor? One Shot One Kill? What?

  28. 1610desig says:

    That symmetrical tuft of hair under the ball cap adorning his pin head is, well, retardedly cute….not sure that was the effect he sought

  29. AnotherPat says:


    Wouldn’t you know it…Lyn Jon Cree HAD to be a Roll Tide Fan…what an embarrassment to BAMA…😝

    Watch what will happen next:

    Lyn Jon Cree will claim he is wearing that vest to honor his Marine Corp
    Buddy/BF/Dad/Uncle/Nephew/Father-In-Law…you get the picture…

  30. AnotherPat says:

    Jarhead…where are you?

    Eagerly awaiting your comments on this Bama “Marine”…😉

    • Jarhead says:

      Checking in late but quite the read on this clown. First off, at least he is not a member of the Dothan Marine Corps League. He actually lives in Slocomb, Al which is only 15 miles from Dothan. Not at all unusual to find players like this who operate with no business license or insurance until they are exposed. Will find out tomorrow. Quite the astute business man. His web site claims work on projects ranging from an average low of $1,500 all the way up to the staggering level of $1,600. Not to mention his satisfaction level is rated a whopping ONE on the One-To-Five scale. Any bets on whether he has a Dothan business license? Rather than tip my hand, a confidential friend will tell me if he is gaming the system.

      • Frankie Cee says:

        He is just a bit north of me. I put a call in to his phone, left my number to see if he wants to do some work on a place of mine.
        I will update if I get a response.

      • Jarhead says:

        City of Dothan business license current. Houston County business license (also REQUIRED to do work anywhere in County, IN ADDITION TO City license) was due for renewal October of last year but never renewed as of this date. Our favorite, Gaming the System, next to check on.

  31. Skidmark says:

    Jon Cryer?

  32. 5JC says:

    I feel cheated. All those years in the military wasted when all I needed was a black leather vest with bling.

  33. Frankie Cee says:

    Dang! Dothan is only 50 miles up the road from my place, and I have found an address and phone number on Lyn J. Cree, not a Marine, just a Handyman. I guess I should call him and ask about the photoshopped head, ala Bernath, that we have above.

  34. Frankie Cee says:

    Dayum! Lyn Jon Cree went all in on who he used to photoshop himself onto. Master Gunnery Sergeant Scott H. Stalker is the Command Senior Enlisted Leader at the Defense Intelligence Agency. Ol’ Jon ain’t messin’ around, is he?

  35. Jarhead says:

    Well Frankie, you do have to admit this phony Marine Poser by the name of Lyn Jon Cree sure looks like a twin to one Master Gunnery Sergeant Scott H. Stalker. Rather than the name Cree, he just might be a Stalker after all.

  36. 26Limabeans says:

    I don’t think he used Photo Shop.
    Looks more like cut and paste.
    With real scissors and paste.

  37. Frankie Cee says:

    Not a Marine, Lyn Jon Cree, phony hasn’t returned two phone calls asking him about doing some work. So, I guess it is time for me to lay it all out for him with an e-mail. I will include the link with the photo and biography of Scott Stalker M/GySgt, and the link to this post, and more. Updates as they are needed.

    • Kurt Rheiman says:

      Please do. I was provided his terrible photoshop image and asked to track down the original – which led me to Scott Stalker’s photo which I then provided to This Ain’t Hell thru a friend. Since then I have attempted to reach him by phone under the guise of needing work. Just so I can bait him into making his claims on recording. But he appears to be in hiding.

  38. Frankie Cee says:

    This E-mail might light him up:
    Yes, Lyn Jon Cree, you have made the big time! Your claims of being a marine have brought you world wide fame. With the post exposing your fakery, every comment there generates a gooooooooogle entry in your name. And dude, that shit is FOR Evah. You used a cheap app, “Face Switch”, to put your mug on the portrait of a hero. How tacky. You could at least have had someone with photoshop skills do the switch for you. And, to top that, you chose to use the portrait of M/GySgt Scott H. Stalker, former Command Senior Enlisted Leader (CSEL) at the Defense Intelligence Agency, and now is the Command Senior Enlisted Leader (CSEL) of the United States Cyber Command and the National Security Agency (NSA) What do you think he will do when he gets this e-mail as BCC? Have you ever read up on him?
    You can do it here:

    And here:

    What is going to happen when the Dothan Eagle and local news radio gets their copies of this e-mail as BCC? Have you seen the post about you?
    Here is a link:

    If you want to enjoy your fame, read the comments. they are all about you.
    Here is your phony photo:

    Photo inserted of pin head wannabe Lyn Jon Cree

    And one of the real deal Marine M/GySgt:

    Photo inserted of M/GySgt Scott Stalker

    I have one last question Lyn Jon Cree:
    “What in hell were you thinking?”
    I am out.

  39. ArmyStrong says:
