I’m going to get off track from the “series” I started to write about and do a little venting. Yeah, most people who know me know I will say what I think, but I try to remain “professional” when I’m actually working. Since this is my blog, I really can write what I want.
What I’m really getting sick of is the fakes and posers out there now claiming to be vets from Iraq or Afghanistan. Some of them are so outrageous; that anybody who was even in the military for the minimum number of years could figure out the person is full or fish. (I’m trying to not swear—I saw that on a TV show the other night, fish can mean fuck, shit or anything, but I’m not going to swear).
The guys who write for the blog: “This ain’t hell…” are pretty good at finding stories on fake vets, or ones who embellish their history. I mean I’m very proud of the fact that I deployed to both Bosnia and Iraq and did Mess Kit Repair. That was a very important job and I am proud of it.
However, for the dirtbag piece of fish who were either never in the military, or never went to any of the hot spots now in the news, they are taking the public and spinning some really fish stories about stuff they know nothing about and the public is sucking it up because they want to?
Here’s a story about a faker who said the Army forced him to be a sniper and he has problems from having to kill people. BIG FAKE VET STORY, clicky here
Let me explain to my gentle non-military readers…. The ARMY doesn’t force anybody to be a sniper. You have to volunteer for the school, and you only pass if you have your fish together….both physical and mentally. No retards are allowed. And no fish heads.
Signs to spot a fake vet:
If they claim to have been in the Navy, they’ll claim to have been a SEAL. If claiming Army, they’ claim to have been a sniper, “green beret” Ranger. If claiming to have been a Marine, they’ll say the were Recon, or scout/sniper. If claiming Air Force, they’ll have been the door gunner on the space shuttle, or something like that.
Other signs, if the person is really out of shape, has other mental problems and just seems to make up stuff about everything, he or she is more than likely making up their military career. What I’ve found is those who were really in something special, will not brag about it and you usually have to get out of them what they did.
Why is this bad? Because the public and the media are taking the words of these fish turds and thinking that all vets are that messed up. The fakes are also taking benefits and things that the real vets should get. The VA is actually swamped with fakers getting free medical benefits because they don’t have time to check everybody that comes in and wants help. Some of us had to wait a year after returning to get into the VA. What can you do? If you find a person faking being a vet, kick them in the balls.
