James Jeenou Thao – Phony Soldier

| August 25, 2018 | 45 Comments

Military Phony sends us their work on James Jeenou Thao, who also goes by Jee Nou Thao, and who claims to be a U.S. Army veteran of Afghanistan.

James recently won a pageant and was crowned “Mr. Hmong Royalty.”  The title came with hours of community service and James was given $1500 in award money.

Here is the video of the pageant’s Round Two, which was in English.  For any of you that understand Hmong, there are other rounds where he may have made other claims, but it was clear in the English version that he said he served for six years in the U.S. Army which included a tour in Afghanistan. (start at 3:05)

Someone reached out to him and he said he was with the 38th Engineer Company in Afghanistan in 2012.

Well, the U.S. Army could find no record of Thao’s military service.

I wonder how the veterans feel that he checked up on every 22nd of the month?

I wonder how the contest administrators would feel about that $1500?

I wonder how the poor chap would feel that came in second place?

Thao should probably still do community service as part of his role as Mr. Hmong Royalty, but perhaps that service should be working directly with veterans.

I can’t think of a better case to test and see if Wisconsin is serious about their newly minted Stolen Valor Law.

    (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

    A Hmong phony soldier.
    His grandparents must feel awful.

  8. Daisy Cutter says:

    I wonder if it will be like the movie “Grand Torino” where Thao has dishonored his family and now must work off the debt.

    Any of you need your gutters cleaned out? Any golfers need your balls washed?

    He looks fabulous!

  10. 5th/77thFA says:

    Maybe he can hire on as assistant towel boy at Brucie’s Bath House (entrance in the rear) to pay back the winnings. Oh, BTW Google Hit: Jee Nou Thao is a phony soldier, who lied about his service and brought shame to the honorable Hmong people. Probably sucks to be you right now. twerp ass punk!

    • sbalm says:

      Someone posted some links warning KyTies to exercise caution about standing behind Jee Nou Thao, but apparently, they deleted the posts.

      They then replied expressing their support of Thao. While it is true that someone is innocent until proven guilty, the comment was odd that they expected an apology when these records are produced.

      PM

      • sbalm says:

        They then blocked the person from making further comments.

        I suggest that KyTies write DIRECTLY to the National Personnel Records Center so the records have a clean chain of custody. Thao doesn’t have any military records because he did not serve. If Thao provides anybody any records, there is more than a good possibility that they are forged. They should think about it – Thao already violated a Wisconsin state stolen valor law and if he did not come clean and is instead suggesting that he’s going to provide military records, Thao is digging a deeper hole for himself by forging a federal document. If anyone accepts that document as proof or suggests that he provide one vs. tell the truth, they are sending him down the wrong path. They should obtain those records (or letter stating lack of records) themselves. This is good, solid, sound advice.

        So, is this business going to apologize when the truth comes to light? Remains to be seen.

        • Sojurn Truth says:

          @sbalm

          We all appreciate the screen cap of the private message from KyTies(https://www.facebook.com/pg/HmongTies) as well as your explanation of the situation. It shows that corruption runs deep with that small time company. KYTIES HMONG TIES should be ashamed when the logic and evidence is clearly blatant. They should lose customers for supporting the fraud, James Jee Nou Thao.

          Thanks.

        “till proben guilty”

        OK, guys, which one of you went probing for proof? You will not find a DD-214 up his backside, so stop probing.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Actually, whether proben or proven, it matters not. That’s a standard of proof in criminal matters. Moreover, no one is ever found innocent. The verdict is not guilty, meaning not that the defendant is innocent but that the standard of proof for a guilty verdict was not met by the prosecution. In any event, this isn’t a criminal matter (yet) and that innocent until proben/proven is misplaced.

  12. Combat Historian says:

    Not been a combat engineer, I have no idea if any component of the Army even has a “38th Eugineer Company” assigned to its OB. If there is such an outfit, it would be easy to check if it has ever served in Afghanistan. And if such a unit had deployed to A’stan, then it should be fairly easy to confirm with vets who served in that unit if Thao was ever a member in that unit or not. All of this is probably unnecessary, as Jeenao Thao has been confirmed by NPRC as a lying piece of shit…

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “If there is such an outfit, it would be easy to check if it has ever served in Afghanistan.” There is and it did.

    • Jarhead says:

      Don’t get so damned defensive incorrigible. Makes you appear to lean toward the gay side of life yourself. Sometimes less said is safer. But I can tell you this without hesitation….anyone who reads this blog and offers comments is going to be wondering exactly who it is that was just buried in Arlington that you criticize as being an asshole? That kind of rhetoric puts a hardened veteran like yourself in the same boat you claim we sail. So you have opened the proverbial can of worms, and should feel good about sharing your perception of one buried in the wrong place. For your sake, if you are suggesting who I think/wonder…….your popularity just nose dived.

    • 5th/77thFA says:

      would you care to elaborate and explain exactly WTF you are talking about?

      • HMC Ret says:

        Incorrigible: You care to come from behind your cloak and tell me who it is you refer to as the DEAD pedophile who was recently buried at Arlington? If it is who I think it is, you’re a fucking bucket of smegma. And BTW, people are free to be in any ‘pond’ they care and to discuss anything they like on this site. I’ll stand by while you explain yourself, if you care to do so.

        BTW, I put dead in CAPS. I would assume the person buried would be dead. Be kinda messy if still alive, don’t you think?

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Just click on the ‘report’ button and let Admin take care of it. I believe I know who it is. And nothing surprises me.

  14. HMC Ret says:

    WTF kind of contest is this? To see who is most likely to swallow one behind the Circle K? And what is the “Mr. Hmong Royalty”? Yeah, they’re royal, all right. So part of the contest is to freeze in place and take two minutes to move one’s head from side to side? If he came in first, I’d hate to see those who were numbers 2 and 3. I’ll pass. I guess it’s a cultural thing and I’m a racist. Yeah, that’s it.

    • Patty says:

      it’s a peagent like miss Cali or miss anything but for guys.. like how there’s boys scouts n girl scouts.. it used to be just for girls but some people thought itll be nice if the guys had something similar to do too so they just recently started this

  15. HMC Ret says:

    So where is his dog with service vest, POW + a few dozen additional patches, motorcycle, leather vest with obligatory POW patch, thousand yard stare, shades, doorag, etc? It would also be helpful if he were surrounded by about a dozen other bikers, also in vests, patches, etc. It would also be helpful if this group were on their way to a VA hospital to perform volunteer work. This guy isn’t trying. Also, if there was no fire that destroyed his 214, and it wouldn’t matter anyway b/c his records are sealed, he isn’t legit. His records must be destroyed by a fire and it is a bonus if his records are sealed.

  16. Jarhead says:

    Regardless as to what incorrigible says or thinks, this sweet young thang with the recapped lips looks to be a spitter. Any doubts? Click on the Military Phonies link at the top of this page. Then scroll down through the pictures and notice the one after the Brokeback Mountain Cowboy pose (note the pink shirt). The very next picture says enough on his T shirt to leave no doubt he’s a gay cowboy’s gay cowboy. Reason I mentioned the color of his hot pink shirt reminds me of an old joke…..”90% of women don’t like men in pink shirts. Ironically, 90% of men in pink shirts don’t like women.”
