Edward Michael Stewart was not a U.S. Navy SEAL with a Purple Heart or Bronze Star. 

| January 11, 2019

According to the folks over at militaryphony.com this Edward Stewart guy was never a Navy SEAL.

 

For some reason, people around Ed believe he was a Navy SEAL. He participates in many community events and is introduced as such. Below, Ed is being introduced as the annual race director by Joggin’ for Frogmen, an organization that honors the Navy Special Warfare community.

 

Ed had some bad experiences because of his service.

With all that stuff and more posted publicly on this interwebnet thingy, I can understand where people are getting the idea Ed is a well decorated Navy SEAL.

Looks like MP ordered his records via a Freedom of Information Act request.

According to those records he was not a Navy SEAL and spent most of his time in the Navy Reserves.  Looks like he skyrocketed to E-3 and I am not sure if he even managed to get a rate in the Navy.  Being an SN is just a few ranks below a LCDR.  He may have been in the territorial waters of Vietnam during 1971, but it appears the Navy has no idea that he was wounded or that he was awarded a Bronze Star.  I checked with the Navy Special Warfare database and there is no record of this guy graduating in BUD/s class 61 or any other class for that matter.

We are happy that we could help Ed Stewart clear up all this confusion.

      Ummmm TAH, me thinks this is an outdated outing by about four years. In researching the sonovabitch to let the organization and their sponsors know about this post, Jason P. Brahim is listed as the 2018 race director for Pittsburgh, PA. I suspect someone let the Navy Seal Foundation (sponsor of Joggin) know about this phony and they threw him overboard. Regardless, although Military Phonies does a very good job, I send the info to the foundation just to ensure they have it.

    yeah…and what exactly is a “Vietnam combat ribbon?”

    fail.

    [HUMMINGBIRD – Dart in, Dart out, Move on]

    It says on Ed Stewart’s Facebook page that he went to college from 1972-1976, which would be consistent with his military records saying he left active duty in 1972.

    However, in one of the articles, it says he was a Navy SEAL from 1973-74, which would have been while he was in college. He must have been superman to take on a full courseload while in college and keep in pace with the operational tempo of being on a SEAL Team.

    In this case, I’m not sure what to believe. This guy is all over the place with his claims and they are not consistent.

    • Combat Historian says:

      A naval reserve SEAL team that carries out top secret missions in Viet of the Nam during its weekend drill meetings? (Sarc)

    • nbcman54ACTUAL says:

      BUDS Class 61 graduated in June 1971. Left active duty in 1972. Served in Viet of the Nam 1973-1974.

      He must have been on the Delayed Deployment Program.

  4. 3/10/MED/b says:

    Must have been a busy individual.
    Don’t suppose Mr. Shipley has been appraised of this man’s “accomplishments”?

  5. Combat Historian says:

    Lieutenant Commander and SEAL? FFS, why the need to lie and embellish?

  6. 26Limabeans says:

    Only one phony purple heart?
    Keeping a low profile is commendable for a phony but he still earns a John Kerry rating:

    Edward Michael Stewart is a KF1 (Kerry Factor)

  7. 5th/77th FA says:

    Edward Michael Stewart (did a seagull on his record). Seagulls swoop in to steal what is not theirs, crap on everything and then repeat, often. Google hit for you my man. You lied about your Military Service and have besmirched the Honor of men way yonder better than you.

    Why you gotta lie, you alleged sissy assed punk. No not alleged; in my opinion, going by the official record of your supposed service, you ARE a sissy assed punk. Why don’t you just ESAD!

  8. AW1Ed says:

    I already don’t like this guy, but give credit where it’s due- those BMRs are brutal, and he did get the NDSM. It’s not like they just hand those out.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      Indeed it’s a bit more prestigious than the coveted Army Service Ribbon….

      • 26Limabeans says:

        The Viet of the Nam vets never got no stinkin ASR. Not even retro. And that Global WOT thing should also be retro.
        Like the Viet of the Nam thing was free of terror?
        What about the Weather Underground and the SDS and the Black Pansies?
        Sheesh

        • Bubble Soldier says:

          I have an ASR on my DA Form 2-1. I am also a Vietnam Era Veteran. AD service from 27OCT70 through 28APR72; after failing WOFT, and completing MP school, assigned to the 561st MP Co., Fort Myer, Virginia.

          I enlisted in the CA-ARNG in 1975, and stayed until 1996. If you were AR, or ARNG after 1981, and graduated from AIT, ASR is supposed to be retroactive.

    • Mike says:

      NDSM: “I was alive in ’65” (1st window of eligibility). Explained to me by my first squad leader.

      ASR: “Nothing to do in ’82”

      NDSM: “I was alive in ’95” (2nd window of eligibility)

      Gotta keep up with the times.

  9. Non Cedo Ferio says:

    So let me get this straight. So some guy is driving around with an egg in his hand. Waiting for that opportune moment when he sees a veteran walking down the street so he can do a drive by egging? Seems legit. I personally drive around all the time with eggs. Doesn’t everybody. ? I just want to drive by Valor thieves only problem is now I gotta drive around with egg beaters in a carton cause my doc says I gotta watch my cholesterol. Somehow not quite the same lmao

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      My thoughts exactly…obvious bullshit is bullshit typically.

      Occam’s Razor and all that.

    • Combat Historian says:

      Back in ‘73 they sold eggs in cartons that were marked with a bullseye and with “USED FOR THROWING AGAINST RETURNING G.I.’S ONLY!” printed underneath it. Saw those in the supermarket all the time when I was a kid…(Sarc)

      • Non Cedo Ferio says:

        I think they sold them in comics back then too right alongside Sea Monkeys and X Ray specs. Lol I think you got an extra carton if you sold enough grit newspapers !

    • JBUSMC says:

      Don’t forget everyone who gets out or takes leave comes home and wears their uniform while walking down the street. Yea right.. When I took 30 days leave I came home and grew a beard and tried to blend in so people wouldn’t ask me stupid questions..

  10. Keepin' It Real says:

    His records show he was a SN and it seemed like he was skipping around with BMRs trying to figure out what he wanted to strike for.

    ISSN is one, which would explain his familiarity with the Intel lingo.

    What does ‘CASP’ mean? Seems it has something to do with status of BMR requirements.

    • Keepin' It Real says:

      Civilian Acquired Skills Program (CASP)?

      Basically, skills from civilian life that transfer over to the Navy as qualifying BMR skills?

    Edward Michael Stewart was one of those “high drag, no speed” guys that had imaginary service in Viet of the Nam. Bet his imaginary friend was a guy by the name of Long Duc Dong (GONG).

    Assclown…

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Ed likes talking about experiences he did not have and accomplishments he did not achieve. It’s only fitting that he now receive what he has truly earned for himself, the ridicule that results from lying about his service. It’s all your Ed, you lying sack of shit.

    I can provide a few rather old eggs if anyone wants them, or they will be by the time the Post Office delivers them to USA from UK. Not recommended for consumption but they do make rather choice projectiles that can stink at 30 paces.

    Once again, it doesn’t look like Army has any chance competing against the SEAL POSers. I guess Big Green just can’t out PR the Navy in Spec Ops.
