Michael Bender – Phony MSgt Recon Marine

| September 28, 2018 | 74 Comments

Military Phony sent us their work on Michael Thomas Bender – who claims he is a retired MSgt of Marines who served from 1984 – 2010 and retired after 26 years.

He claims that he was in Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance.

Then, he also claims he was in “3/9 Force Recon Battalion” which must be a super secret unit because nobody has ever heard of it.  Also, he claims GySgt vs. MSgt in his VetFriends profile.

He works around youth in the US Naval Sea Cadet Program.

It looks like he lost a foot or two since that uniform was issued, I think we found the incredible shrinking Marine.

And his profile looks awesome – https://www.region57nscc.org/pmi-bio

He has a chest full of medals, including a Combat Action Ribbon although you have to look close to see what’s wrong with the CAR in the above photo and the ones below.

You wouldn’t know it’s the same Marine by looking at his official military records:

Michael Bender was discharged from the USMC as a Corporal (E-4) vs. a MSgt (E-8).

There is nothing in his records to support him serving from 1986 – 2010.  The time he spent on active duty is consistent with a Marine that was in the Reserve.  In fact, on his summary sheet, it says he was in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.

The only medal listed is a Rifle Marksman Badge.  There is no Combat Action Ribbon.

You have to give him credit in this photo – he uses an assortment of ferns and other foliage.  I know you can hardly pick him out in the photo below but stare closely at the center of the screen and you will eventually see a goofy dork like guy with shrubs on his head.

    Somebody found the “Commemorative Medal” section of the catalog.

    Dumbass.

  2. AW1Ed says:

    Did someone dump the entire salad bar on his head? If so, he’s a few croutons shy of the chef’s special.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Is that ‘scrubs’ or ‘shrubs’?

    Why is he wearing all that greenery? Was there a sale at the lawn & garden shop? Or is he planning a snipe hunt?

    He should probably watch out for ticks. I hear they always give you away. Not only that, they always find a way to invade those personal spaces that no one ever wants to discuss.

    This one time, in the rushes near Sand Lake, I felt something crawling up my left leg. I immediately repaired to the bathroom at home and found that a tick had lodged itself in a most embarrassing possible spot. It itched for days afterwards.

    michael bender,,,,,welcome to google fame…YOU SUCK

  5. Combat Historian says:

    I bet he wore his CAR upside down…

    As for this douche wearing a phony Iraq Campaign Medal ribbon, he can go fuck himself…

    • lmn0351 says:

      car upside down and only one good cookie award after 26 years

    • Mason says:

      ICM is out of order with the ACM too. That rack is a poser salad bar. He apparently doesn’t know what a ribbon device is.

      Doesn’t even put the two NDSM’s in that he would have qualified for with his claims. Loser.

      • USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

        Exactly.

        Recon guy with one combat action ribbon (upside down) – no subsequent awards…

        No ribbon devices on Good Conduct Medal…

        No subsequent overseas deployments…

        Claiming Gulf War service but missing the Kuwait Liberation Medal (one was given by Kuwait – the other by Saudi Arabia)

        Both his Iraq and Afghanistan Campaign ribbons lack the requisite campaign stars, so he’s all fucked up there, too.

        Fuggin shitbag.

  6. Daisy Cutter says:

    I think I saw Mike Bender on TV.

    Yes, now I remember – it was on “Between Two Ferns.”

  7. 3/10/MED/b says:

    Facebook check. Annnnnnd, it’s gone.

    Who’da thunk it…

    Dumbass.

  8. RCAF-CHAIRBORNE says:

    Wow….most airsoft kiddie commandos apply better camo paint than him! Would have done better if he painted himself up like KISS

  9. Frankie Cee says:

    I have been messaging those that have commented at his facebook page with this:
    Hello. Has Michael Bender told you that he was anything more than a Marine Corps Reservist? Such as being in a Force Recon unit? Having 26 years service and retired? Having more rank than that of an E-4 Corporal? He has exaggerated his military service, most likely because of a physical condition known as tiny penis syndrome. The real info on him is at this link: https://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=82051

  10. 3/10/MED/b says:

    Where are these blue fenced-in training areas?

    Dumbass.

  11. Why isn’t anyone surprised this was another Sea Cadet Officer who was not vetted? Who is holding the chain of command accountable? Not surprised Bender is still listed on the Region Website in Ohio!

    • Parent of a cadet says:

      I am a parent of a cadet in the program. The Commanding Officer, LCDR James Lukasiewicz is a freaken moron and the entire region knows it. He advocated for Bender. Later, the Cincinnati C.O. Greenwald was fired for the mismanagement which permitted Bender to be around the cadets without a background check. Not surprised to see these people protected while an honorably discharged vet was fired for reporting Bender. The egos surrounding the adults in this program is sickening, and innocent cadets continue to suffer under this insanity.

      • Puffy says:

        Cincinnati Division, hell this whole Region, is Sea Adults and not Sea Cadets. Just a bunch of wanna bes that like strutting around in uniform playing dress up. “Cadets? Who? Oh yeah. Them.”

  12. Just An Old Dog says:

    fucking douche-turtle.

  13. Garold says:

    “I know you can hardly pick him out in the photo below but stare closely at the center of the screen and you will eventually see a goofy dork like guy with shrubs on his head.”

    Hmmm. I’m having trouble picking him out between all the shrubs absorbing water and inorganic substances through roots and synthesizing nutrients in leafs by photosynthesis using the green pigment chlorophyll.

    I’ll have to study it some more.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      I’m guessing that the clientele at Brucie’s Bath House (entrance in the rear) have no problems identifying him when he’s the pivot man on “Circle Jerk Saturday’s”…

      Enjoy the Google fame, MICHAEL BENDER…

  14. Concerned Grandmother says:

    Shameful man with shameful behavior. Sea Cadets is the last place you should have been. Glad you are gone. You are an embarrassment to yourself and your family.

  15. Another Parent says:

    Nothing about this man surprises me. I wonder if his degrees are real too? He’s vindictive and cares little, except for the adoration of being a phony hero with the Marine Corps League and the cadets. Ashame he tore the Sea Cadets apart. He also uses the Marine EGA on his business card for his Petra Training Business.

  16. 26Limabeans says:

    Must have used a brick trowel to slather that stuff all over his mug. The sprig of Cedar does highlight his smooth skin though.
    Is that T1-11 siding in the background?

    Hey Mikey, supper is ready. Time to come in from playing Marine out by the garage. Take your meds and drink your chocolate milk then get ready for jamies and a bed time story.

  17. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Cocksucker.

  18. OWB says:

    Is that Poison Ivy on his helmet?

  19. 1610desig says:

    I wouldn’t recommend that head garnish/gillie suit if he’s lurking about in my vicinity on some “recon” mission…my rapacious goats would seek out and denude him in under 30 seconds…and the ornery Billy would ass fuck him just for general goat giggles…BTW, according to the profile this asshole has a wife? Enabler or not too curious, either way she owns some of his new found fame.

    • Frankie Cee says:

      She was one of those who got this message from me:

  20. Keepin' It Real says:

    I have to say that I was pulled into the hard corps nature of him in camo until I saw the backyard fence in the background.

    Kind of like when someone is showing their muscles in a bathroom selfie.

  21. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      Didn’t get any commo checks!

  22. It looks like Bender was on a real “Bender” the night before by the look on his face. Bender than him than me.

  23. RGR 4-78 says:

    “You have to give him credit in this photo – he uses an assortment of ferns and other foliage.”

    It looks like a bad floral arrangement at the town drunks funeral.

  24. Yet another concerned parent says:

    I just wish that the US Naval Sea Cadets would hold the chain of command accountable for this rather drastic lapse in judgment. I know for a fact that these morons are still in charge. which scares the everliving piss out of me, they are supposed to teach these kids about Honor, Courage, and Commitment. How can they possibly do this when they allow someone who obviously has none of these attributes into the program.

    I honestly hope this guy goes down under the Stolen Valor Act!

  25. JTB says:

    He’s has his “Tossed Salad” face ready…!!!

  26. HMC Ret says:

    I’m thinking the pic was taken at the Golden Corral salad bar. I hope GC changed out the salad bar with fresh stuff. I want to know who took the pic? Is there an equally doofus dumbass that he knows who would help him with his bs?

    Well, dumbass, from now until the end of time you will be nothing but a punch line on Google. idiot

  27. 5th/77thFA says:

    Hey Michael Bender, not a recon retired Marine; your pathetic attempt to camo yourself does not hide the face of a turd. Why you wanna lie?

  28. By the pic of him in the bush, maybe he was playing hide an seek which brings me to a not too long story. It was around 1952/53 we were playing hide an seek which started at the phone pole. I used to look up at the rectangular splice box on the phone wire and used to think that was where the operator was located inside the box. Hey at 7 or 8 one couldn’t blame me.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      I used to climb a tree next to a pole, open the box and Tap in with RadioShack™ headphones. The box was in the canopy so people walking below could not see me.
      No wonder I went Signal.

  29. HMC Ret says:

    We had a 3 party line the first 7-8 years of my life. I refer to it as the ‘ghetto house’. It had 3 rooms, linoleum and dirt floors, outside ‘facilities’, etc. Anyway, I used to think that when one of the other two parties answered the phone, they had to be in the same house with me. I would go looking for them in my house. I never found them. Maybe they were under he bed. I quit looking when we moved to another house and had a single party line.

  30. HMC Ret says:

    Maybe the picture was taken at the lawn and garden section of Home Depot.

  31. HMC Ret says:

    If you click on the ‘Michael Thomas Bender’ link above, there is a picture of him at a grave sight with a young girl. Maybe he’s visiting his reputation. You dumbed up, dummy.

  33. Robert streeter says:

    Shrubberry!!!

  34. Grubby Mittz says:

    he seriously looks like the Krynoid monster from that 70s Doctor Who serial where the plants started taking over the Earth

  35. Another parent says:

    Bender is scrubbing his online business and profile. The Sea Cadets removed his profile from the region link. Why do shitbags always want to impress kids with their fake tales?

  36. JimmyB says:

    He reminds me of the Scarecrow from the Wizard of OZ.

  37. Daisy Cutter says:

    I’ll bet he doesn’t know what’s the color of the boat house at Hereford.

  38. Dennis says:

    And just like THAT!, four years of Facebook bullsnot goes up in smoke. 🙂

  39. Staff Cadet says:

    Why is Phony Poser Bender still teaching training courses? Who is giving this guy access to Cadets?

    • Aware cadet says:

      LT William Greenwald and LCDR James Lukasiewicz, the same chain of command who defended and endorsed Bender. They allowed the conditions by allowing Bender around cadets unsupervised and will never be held accountable. Their incompetence deserves the public criticism this blog provides. P.S. your annual trainings are shit. My C.O. is right to steer cadets away from your training site. You all suck. I hate being in this region.

      • Not a Lacky says:

        I can’t agree more, LCDR Lukasiewicz is a complete incompetent and surrounds himself with the same. I am incredulous that he is allowed to continue to operate in the USNSCC. LT Greenwald is, shockingly, is even more incompetent than his butt buddy Lukasiewicz. I too am in the region and have steered cadets and parent away from this man’s annual circus shows of training.

    I live in Ohio and was researching the Sea Cadets for my daughter. Thank you for the warning, I will look elsewhere.
