Still Rocking the Lies

| October 20, 2020

This is a trial post that has the potential to become a regular feature.  We would like to call attention to the military fakers that continue to rock the lie in spite of being exposed.  The below list is by no means exhaustive so that is where you, as members of the Stolen Valor community come in.  Please make us aware and post anybody that you feel has continued to rock their lies in spite of being posted on Valor Guardians / This Ain’t Hell / Military Phony.

A couple of reminders:  1) they must be cases that were posted on here with both evidence of their claims and evidence of their actual military service and 2) there must be clear-cut evidence that they continue to rock their lies.

We try to adhere to the philosophy of posting once and moving on.  In other words, we try not to beat a dead horse with the exception being that they don’t seem to have acknowledged or learned from their mistake.

In looking over past cases and checking up on them out of curiosity, they seem to fall into a couple of distinct categories:

  1. UNFAZED – Completely undeterred by a public posting about their actual vs. fabricated military service
  2. REFINED – Some behavior modification and scaling back, but continue nonetheless with a polished version of claims
  3. CHAMELEON – Display of “chameleon” behavior which may include a name modification, but persist.  In some cases, it is more like a snake shedding its skin and reinventing themselves

There are other subtle distinctions in their behavior, but these seem to be the broad categories.


Andy Prado – As you can see by his Facebook page, he still has the claims of Airborne Ranger and 75th Ranger Regiment.  What’s particularly ironic is the meme he displays which states: “I MAY NOT BE PERFECT, BUT AT LEAST I’M NOT A FAKE”


Les Brown – More commonly known as “The Brown Stain on Elko Nevada,” ol’ Les claimed that “we all wear something on our vests that we didn’t earn.”  Brown had the luxury of having the Elko Free Press circle the wagons around him.  Although the refinement is not of his doing, he most likely is no longer doing school events where he’s surrounded by children while he rocks his lies.  Les Brown had the honored distinction of getting over two thousand comments on This Ain’t Hell.


Greg Witter – AKA Greg Lakota, Mitchell Lonewolf, Colin Lonewolf and Greg Lonewolf and recently – Declan Lonewolf, Declan Olafson and Declan Stone.  Witter actually legally changed his name to Lonewolf, but now he may be implying some kind of Scottish lineage.  This may be true, but simply not worth our time to keep up with him and his claims.  He has many social media profiles and Facebook pages, but his current Facebook page shows some behavior modification and although he seems to have scrubbed it clean, we continue to get reports from the ladies that he is claiming a lot of things that raise eyebrows.

These individuals are just a small sampling of past cases that did not flinch or modified their behavior somewhat, but continue with the false stories.

Hopefully, you can remind us of more.  Remember, it is important that all individuals highlighted persist in their lies.

    First one I can think of still rocking the lie.

    Terry Glass

    Still begging for money claiming wounded warrior.

    So the Honorary CPO lousy airplane pilot is ineligible?

    • Daisy Cutter says:

      He may have his own category. He actually doubled down after exposure and started wearing Navy SEAL insignia.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      His plane did not like him. It loved the air. You could turn the engine off and keep going 10 to 15 feet above the ground, just on the lift those wings created…. and that 0-0-0-0 person kept torturing that little plane until one day, it decided to take matter under its own wings….

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        He DID have a habit of taking pics of halfassed maintenance on that plane and posting it…

  3. Ret_25X says:

    ahhh…the true shitbirds of the shitbirds.

    Not content to lie and get caught, they move on with new BS and smellier lives….

    You have to wonder….did their moms drop them on their heads?

  4. 26Limabeans says:

    Les Brown. Yes, a well refined act.
    FIRST one that came to mind.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      The citizens of Elko County
      are on a parade, ceremony, chili feed, and (other) public events watch.
      The streets now have eyes in Elko, Nevada.

  5. AW1Ed says:

    “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal. Not the STD, but a Senator from Connecticut.

    OK, he’s an STD too.

    I would look forward to these articles as a regular feature of TAH. The phonies are still out there, but until NPC can get back up and running full time, we are suffering from a lack of verifiable phonies. Maybe it will help bring back some of the long time commenters that we seem to have lost. Anytime a linky is posted to a past article I like to go back and re-read the articles on either side of the link. There is a great number that are conspicuous in their absence. I almost started a list of old faithfuls to see if we could do a welfare check. But, again, I digress.

    I can’t help much in the monitoring of these sh^tbags since I don’t have “Social Media.” I will, however, pile on with the renewed comments and be the FIRST (ht 2 ‘Beans) to call for a re-deployment of the HoI.

    • 3/17 Air Cav says:

      I still look at TAH most days. Just don’t feel like commenting much. Maybe that will change when the phonys start showing up again!

  7. David says:

    2000 posts… that’s as long as the average Commissar – TAH exchange feels.

  8. Flakpup says:

    I think the Unfazed, Refined, and Chameleon ratings are missing an important category…

    FULL BERNATH: Individuals who continue to go above and beyond the normal call of Stolen Valor. Acts in ways that defy both sensibility and classification. Refuses to acknowledge any wrong and will double, and then triple, down on claims in ways that boggle the mind. May also include the filing of baseless lawsuits against those speaking the truth, creation of fraudulent websites to harass innocents, and laughable attempts at defamation against those speaking the truth.

    • sbalm says:

      Motion to add said category. Do we hear an aye to second the motion?

      For a minute, thought you were talking about Forgin Frank…


    • ChipNASA says:

      I’m down with this.
      Yes this “above and beyond” clarification seems to fit nicely and I think we’ve met the TAH Roberts Rules.
      Kinda like anyone here that really, truly needs the HoI jammed up their assholes sideways, at about escape velocity. Dry.
      You have my vote.

  9. Green Thumb says:

    What about if individuals claim it 1) never happened (their claims) and 2) they refuse to answer questions concerning these claims (although previously known and heard by many)?

  10. ninja says:

    Check out Andy Prado’s “DD214” (site posted by our Steve Balm):

    And yep, the Dude is STILL claiming RANGER Status on his Fakebook…

    Then again, he claims on his Fakebook that Jesus Christ is his Hero…


    Did I mention “the greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”

    You Be The Judge.


    • Green Thumb says:

      Religion is usually the last refuge of a scoundrel.

      Odd thing about it is that I really doubt God wants anything to do with this shitbag either.

      • David says:

        The reverse is not always true… religion is not always a hallmark of a scoundrel, but using phony religion as a cover or excuse for being a scoundrel is common – and low.

  11. Sarge says:

    Ole Brownstain seems to have been quiet lately…do we have any updates on him at all?

  12. Claw says:

    UNFAZED: Left Low Ball Jimmy Walls, still rocking the lie to 32K members on his thousand dollar FakeBook page four and a half years later.

    Just the other day posted a picture (stolen from the book Chickenhawk) of pilots in a Huey cockpit and captioned it with:

    in the third grade our teacher said “Quit staring out the window because when you grow up no one will pay you to sit and just look out the window.”

    Guess “I” showed her……..

    • ninja says:


      That Dude hasn’t linked up with Baby Killer Killam or the 3-Star NDSM, (who came into the Army in 1975 AFTER the Vietnam Era)?

      What a shame.


      • Claw says:

        Some of his other recent examples of being unfazed include:

        “We hauled a lot of C Rations”
        “We were a team”

        And yet still visible (used to be his profile picture) on his personal Fakebook page another pilot in a cockpit picture stolen from Chickenhawk captioned “one of my few photos of me. This is Germany.”

        • ninja says:


          Oh, Dear Heavens To Betsy…What A Doofus!!!

          Thank You for sharing, Claw!

          BTW, one of these days, we will stop by to get that ole Messhall Coffee Mug from the TAH Supply Room located at Claw Manor (we laughed so hard when we pulled up the NSN you provided on that item…heck, we even started talking about those Messhall trays!)..what great memories…


          • Claw says:

            Roger. We’ll be here. Coffee Mug(s),Tumbler(s), and P-38/51(s)(all plurals) are available for issue 24/7. Just be sure to sign in on the visitors log. However, only have one each 5220-00-535-1217 on hand and you would have to do some pretty persuasive talking to get me to part with it./smile

          • Claw says:

            “we even started talking about those Messhall trays!”:

            7350-00-144-4989 Tray, Mess, Compartmented Color: Tan

          • 3/17 Air Cav says:

            Ninja……on my visit to Claw Manor a few years back, Claw was kind enough to give me one of those messhall coffee mugs! Also a p38. Rumor has it that Claws China hutch has a complete eight piece setting of messhall China and cutlery!

            • sj says:

              I have mine too 3/17! Great memories of that visit to the stately Claw mansion guarded by the ever alert Scooby.

      • Green Thumb says:


        I remember that turd.

        They could link up if Dude heads down the All-Points Logistics in Merritt Island, FL.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Jimmy “LEFT NUT LOW” Walls has gone BALLS DEEP with his bullshit…

  13. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Keep the turds in the spotlight, Steve… they want the attention, give it to them!

  14. Richard Cole says:

    USMC phony Douglas Duane Dietrich is another TAH exposed nutjob who continues his false claims of service as well as his slander and defamation of JV Lilyea. The way Dietrich continues to defame Lilyea even after his death is especially reprehensible.

  15. Ret_25X says:

    In case you missed the assclown in the ascot…

  16. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Colt Bullot… ‘nuf said!

  17. ChipNASA says:

    Well I haven’t seen it but I’m going to vote for (and excuse me for stepping in for…) Wilted Willy, although, I’m speaking of our good poster Wilted Willy’s cocksucking, “asshat brother that has screwed us taxpayers out of 750K over that last 30 years!” Fucking thief!

  18. Claw says:

    Another UNFAZED:

    The all time least amount of service bedwetter Ron Itzig (16 days). He still has the moniker of 82nd Airborne Paratrooper attached to his Linkedin page and as of this date despite being 30 years old, still lives at home with Mommy and Daddy./s
