Private “Chipp” Reid – Bassackwards Phony Marine

| April 28, 2021

The folks at Military Phony send us their work on this Douglas “Chipp” Reid clown.  When he is not wearing that smarmy smirk, he likes to play dress-up as a United States Marine.  When I was sent a photo of him a while back I instantly knew we needed to do some research on him.  Trying to fake being a Marine SNCO is not all that easy and a real one will spot you in an instant.

According to the United States Marine Corps, Private Chipp Reid is not and never has been a United States Marine.    It does not appear that the Army wanted much to do with Private Chipp Reid either.

Reid fancies himself an author and historian focusing on Navy and Marine Corps history. Reid has several books to his writing credit for the Naval Institute Press and also sold on Amazon.  Reid is often sought out for speaking engagements.

In the following clip from C-SPAN, Reid claims that he is both an Army and Marine Corps veteran, implying that he decided to become a man in 1992 after seeing the light.

Reid appeared on the popular TV documentary “The Curse of Oak Island” where Reid was brought in as a Naval historian and was introduced as a retired member of the U.S. Marine Corps.  Rick Lagina, the show’s star, thanked “Chipp” Reid for his service.


In August 2017 the Naval War College in Newport RI detailed the upcoming speakers for the Naval War College Museum’s Eight Bells Lecture Series. On Thursday, October 5th they advertised: “To the Walls of Derne: William Eaton, the Tripoli Coup, and the End of the First Barbary War,” by Chipp Reid. In a short bio that followed, Reid was introduced as a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.


At a Pearl Harbor Commemorative Dinner held on December 7, 2020, “Chipp” Reid was asked to be the Master of Ceremonies. The dinner took place at the Hilton in L’Enfant Plaza, Washington, D.C. with about 50 people in attendance.

In the Winter 2020 versions of the Naval Order of the United States magazine, a photo and brief article captured the event.  In the photo, Reid can be seen with USMC GySgt (E-7) stripes and a Purple Heart medal with a second award, signifying two Purple Heart awards.


Can’t tell, but if one of the ribbons is not a Combat Action Ribbon – it’s rare to be awarded a Purple Heart but not a Combat Action Ribbon.  Exceptions are the Fort Hood and Chattanooga Tennessee Reserve Center terrorist shootings.  One thing is for sure,  he has the EGA’s bassackwards.

What’s the NPRC have to say about all this…

I guess getting out as an E-1 freed Chipp up to strike gold with the Marine Corps.

But the Marine Corps says “Who?”…


As stated in the FOIA results – the NPRC summary sheet states that Reid’s records show he was in the Army Reserve and got out as a Private (E-1) after 9 years.

The U.S. Marine Corps could not locate a record on him.

There are no Purple Heart awards for his time in the U.S. Army Reserve.  Since there are no records that were located for the US Marine Corps, the Purple Heart awards are a moot point.

It is odd that he only got an Army Service Ribbon for his time in the Army Reserve.  There are possible reasons for that but it is most likely related to his discharge as a Private (E-1) and we’ll leave it at that.

If Reid has used false claims of having a Purple Heart to leverage anything of value – employment, sale of books or other items, paid speaking engagements, etc. he could be in violation of Stolen Valor laws.  It appears he may be claiming to have several awards of the Purple Heart Medal.

I can’t help but wonder if Chipp Reid was discharged by the Army under Other Than Honorable conditions.  I guess there could be some plausible explaination for him be discharged as a Private honorably.  I have my doubts.

In my opinion Private Chipp Reid is little more than a bloviated phony and valor vulture with a septic ego.  I base that opinion on the information we were provided by official sources and years of actually being a Marine SNCO.

Nice try Douglas,

    The Combat Action Ribbon is a ribbon, not a medal so you wouldn’t wear it with your dinner dress.

    • Jay says:

      THIS. But those backward EGA’s are unforgiveable. Ive had mine knocked askew a few times at the ball a few times but never put mine on BACKWARDS, especially not for a friggen speaking engagement on TV.

      BUT, when you’ve been posing as long as he is, he’s got it down pat.

    • Green Thumb says:


      And that dress blouse / jacket looks a few sizes to big.

      Might have been the only one he could find at the local Army / Navy store.

      Dude looks like a giant blue parachute.

    • Anonymous says:

      Unless he gets the “commemorative” medal for filling-out shadow boxes… that’d be a hoot. (Battle of Hoth Medal with Endor Clasp got nutin’ on that silliness!)

  2. Tallywhagger says:

    He doesn’t look like Bernath. That may be his best quality.

  3. Hack Stone says:

    It’s a damn shame that he did not have the motivation and intestinal fortitude to strive to be a fake Sergeant Major. On the other hand, Hack can take comfort that Douglas Chipp Reid finds us Gunnery Sergeants worthy of stealing our accomplishments. He best not be sporting the highly coveted and rarely awarded Precious Metals Recovery Expert Badge, or he will really be subject to our wrath.

    • Jay says:

      Right? At the same time, in those mess dress he looks like 10lbs of black cow manure stuffed into a 5lb sack. As a fellow (read, REAL) Gunnery Sergeant, I take HIGH offense to that.

      Not sure if its how the podium is stacked, but it kinda looks like he forgot to wear a crumb catcher too.

    • Anonymous says:

      Well, he could claim to be medically retired for being overweight due to PTSD… gotta work with the existing material, you know.

  4. USAFRetired says:

    He may very well be a historian, but it sure don’t look like he was a Marine. He is sporting a much more impressive chest of fruit salad than my father the 26 year retired MGYSgt had. Not bad for a 9 year Army reservist.

    • Green Thumb says:

      You have to do what you have to do to stay on the All-Points Logistics payroll.

    • 5JC says:

      My father retired as a Gunny after 21 and he had a few pieces of bling. He did serve in Vietnam twice so maybe that was it. He was lucky enough not to get a PH.

  5. Green Thumb says:

    The last photo appears to be him speaking at the All-Points Logistics Annual Employee Award Ceremony.

  6. KoB says:

    Another lying, embellishing POS in Douglas “Chipp” Reid. His authorship has morfed into fiction with he tales of derring do. He’s a Chip alright, a Buffalo Chip, you know, a dried up piece of sh%t. His Marine Service musta been making a donation of a toy to “DaNang” Dick’s Toys for Tots Program. Purple Hearts came from his di@k stepping and a bad case of bruised taint. And yes, he has used his lies, Douglas “Chipp” Reid has, for monetary gain. Lock his fake ass up and let Bubba, Thor, Julio, and Mr Tiny have their way with him. Let them sink a few shafts into his island.

    Can’t believe that I am, again, the FIRST (ht 2 SgtM) to make a motion for the deployment of the TAH Hemisphere of Insults for the fake Marine and E-1 after 9 (NINE) years of Army Reserve no service. Let him “read” all about it here. At least the Brother/Sisterhood of the NDSM can breathe easier, knowing he did not get that Coveted Award.

    Can I get a SECOND and an AYE?

    • ChipNASA says:

      I commented off TAH about this TURD, Oh you better believe you fucktards better step up and make this happen.
      Shitbag here stealing MY GOOD NAME and adding “PEE” to it to try to make it his own and ripping off my Valor and Good WIll.
      Oh the HoI is a commin’…but I can’t vote so, ladies and gentlemen, I await your showing of hands and comments forthwith.

                  “He could, when necessary, open up with both barrels and let forth such blue-flamed phrases that they seemed almost eloquent in their delivery. When asked by his nephew about his profanity, Patton remarked, “When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can’t run an army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An Army without profanity couldn’t fight its way out of a piss-soaked paper bag.”

      Yes. Good Catch.
      Chipp has (at least) 2 pages on the Book of Fake.
      And this 2nd page is fake, too.

      Chipp just changed the cover photo, only 1 hour ago.
      But he still has a Marine photo up.
      From 2016.
      It’s like a homeowner’s property warning sign.

      “This property is protected by a United States Marine
      who has a serious lack of negotiating skills,
      but is absolute hell in a gunfight.

  10. MI Ranger says:

    I don’t see any time listed for actually going to Basic Training or Advanced Individual Training…could it be that he was discharged as an E-1 because he never went to Basic or acquired an MOS? It says he was an Interrogator, back then it would have been a 97E, and required language training as well. He should have had at least 10 weeks Basic training, and 18-20 week AIT on active duty, plus language school at Monterey, CA. Sounds like he just kept avoiding passing Basic and AIT and getting an MOS, getting paid to drill on the weekends, and the Army finally said enough…”either get trained or get out!”

    • ChipNASA says:

      That certainly looks like a possibility but how the flop do you Sham for 9 years?
      This dude should probably get this (I saved it for later, my own award…I wish modmins could image share of they so choose)

      • tshe says:

        Even if you don’t show up for weekend drill or ditch the two week obligated active duty per year, I don’t think they reduce you in rank. You just don’t get a good year.

        Something else must have happened that got him reduced in rank. Since his imagination seems to run wild, he could have benefited from advice to put the crack pipe down. Just put it down and walk away.

      • Mason says:

        I was hoping for a bronzed shammy.

    • MSG Eric says:

      At that point in the reserve it was very normal to keep “ghosts” on the manning roster for USR purposes.

      What is very likely is that he was supposed to go to basic training and for whatever reason was unable to go. He likely got injured and wasn’t able to start. (Broken ankle, leg, Vagina, etc.)

      Something that required a lengthy recovery period could’ve kept him in an IET status and it would be up to the unit to chapter him out. After a while it is likely he just disappeared and prior to 2006, if you stopped showing up to your unit for drill weekends they would just transfer you to the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR). In the IRR no one called you, checked on you, etc. You were just “there” until your contract was complete.

      So, he entered at E1, most likely was injured and couldn’t start basic, disappeared, transferred to the IRR and they didn’t bother with him until his contract was completed. Then he was discharged as an E1 with honorable status. (Very common back then.)

      Once reserve units got critically short of personnel for deployments in 2005ish, the Army Reserve started sending mobilization orders to IRR members who would mostly ignore the order, or never received it because their records weren’t up to date. (I believe it was something around only 30% actually reported for duty?) Because of that, Soldiers who stopped showing up were no longer just transferred to the IRR, they were discharged with a general or other than honorable status, which is what this dipshit should’ve received.

      The Army Reserve CG at the time lost a lot of credibility because he was stupid enough to say the Reserve could fulfill the mission requirement not realizing (or wanting to realize) that a large percentage of his “personnel” were ghosts he would never see.

      The worst part was, they didn’t even bother doing anything derogatory to those that didn’t report for duty. They just discharged them because that was “easiest” (then the army times reported on it and all the IRR types who DID show up got a serious case of the ass.)

    • Bryan Todd Kirby says:

      He’s got an ASR and is listed as a 97E on his 2-1 so he completed BCT and AIT

      • Claw says:

        Nope, that 97E1L listed on the 2-1 is only a unit’s duty slot position, not proof of completing either BCT/AIT and being awarded an MOS.

      • MSG Eric says:

        And if he completed BCT / AIT at that time, he would’ve been awarded the NDSM.

    • Daisy Cutter says:

      Chipp often includes in a short bio that he is a “Cold War Veteran.”

      He must have had to do some major Matrix-style dodging of bullets to avoid getting the NDSM.

      The Brotherhood of the NDSM breathes a collective sigh of relief today.

      • David says:

        No NDSM just dates his ‘service’. Was not awarded post-VN for 16 years, for instance.

      • MI Ranger says:

        By his dates of service he should have been awarded it…unless he was not ever qualified to actually serve in the Army (no MOS), and therefore could not have contributed to the National Defense!

        • Daisy Cutter says:

          The following may shed some light on this.

          Recall that he was discharged as a Private after having exactly nine years of service.

          The Character of Discharge is something that is not releasable under the FOIA guidelines.

          HOWEVER… The Department of the Army regulations state:

          “Veterans or next of kin of deceased veterans who were discharged under other than honorable conditions are not entitled to any medals earned during the less than honorable period of service.”

          You can take what you want from that statement.

    • Claw says:

      Nope, he never even went to/completed Basic/AIT or else he’d have some level of a Marksmanship Badge annotated on the FOIA to go along with the Army Service Ribbon.

      This is a good example for Peoria Reporter Andy Kravitz to see that the services will track you even though that individual never spends a day on active duty time./smile

    • MarineDad61 says:

      NDSM requires 2 things.
      – During a conflict.
      – Active Duty.
      No active duty = No NDSM.
      National Guard and Reserves part time duty doesn’t count.

      • Daisy Cutter says:

        From Wikipedia: “For service in the Persian Gulf War, members of the Reserve Components, to include the National Guard, were initially awarded the NDSM when called to active duty service, but this was later expanded to include all members of the Reserve or National Guard in good standing in the Selected Reserve during the eligibility period.”

        Key words being “in good standing.” The light is slowing coming into the room and we see the ugly.

      • Mason says:

        Post-Vietnam, the reserve components get it for showing up to work too.

      • OWB says:

        Certainly can’t speak for everyone, but my entire military career was in the reserve component. Earned the NDSM 3 times. Yes, for 3 different conflicts. Yes, for being on short bursts of active duty but not permanently assigned to an active component. A few days here, a few months there. It all adds up.

        Absolutely, I did waaaaay more active duty than this Reid clown did, and at least as much as he did in the Corps. Oh, wait. I had to train some Marines a few times. That’s not the same thing, huh?

      You have to be joking about notifying the Fan Belt inspectors. The Schantags spent about three years aggressively trying to get the feds to do something about Rick Cayton’s false POW claims. Even when he was finally prosecuted, they let him cop a plea into some diversion program. He is likely collecting a disability pension from the VA for the dreaded PTSD for his RVN service, in addition to his CSM retired pay.

      I am sure the FBI’s were more interested in looking at the pull down ropes for Bubba Wallace’s garage doors last week than they will ever be for any tip/complaint about this clown. Besides, they are just too busy investigating Trump supporters; they just raided Giuliani’s apartment in NYC. Political enemy fit-ups (as the Brits say) are their priority these days.

      • Daisy Cutter says:

        I know exactly what you are saying. It’s the same scenario with filing a VA fraud complaint with the VA IG – never hear anything and nothing gets done.

        However, if I never file anything I’m 100% sure nothing will get done. So I’d rather do a few clicks, cut and past and Submit. I figure it’s not on me and it can hang over the “perp’s” head.

        I submitted this case to the FBI a few hours ago.

        • Daisy Cutter says:

          I can also say years from now that I’ve submitted XX complaints and never heard anything come out of any one of them.

    Irony, look at Chipp’s choice of FakeBook URL.
    I predict the entire page goes POOF before the weekend,
    to be replaced with chippreidfakehistorian,
    or something.

    • Daisy Cutter says:

      The USS Chipp Reid (BS-00) took a torpedo to the starboard side. He’s taking on water. It must be remembered that a P-250 water pump doesn’t do near as good a job as a scared man with a bucket.

      Eventually, Chipp will realize he can’t be attentive to Social Media assets 24/7 – he’ll eventually scuttle the ship.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Daisy Cutter,
        That cocksucker Chipp is online right now,
        DELETING fresh comments with fair questions.

        In the time it took me to click and reply to 1,
        it went poof, too.

        Ugh, that prick.

        • Daisy Cutter says:

          Him working frantically deleting all posts about this is a sure sign of guilt.

          Chipp, if you’re reading this – Just come clean, man. It sucks, but it will be a lot more efficient. Sometimes you just have to cowboy up and take a bite of a dirt sandwich.

          Know that many in this community stay up late at night and some rise ridiculously early in the morning. Although not a coordinated effort, you can look at it like we work in shifts.

          If you plan to keep your social media accounts up until such time as the History Channel, Oak Island, the Naval Institute, and perhaps the FBI get in touch with you, I hope you don’t have anything else planned for the next week. Good luck there, Sparky.

          • MarineDad61 says:

            Daisy Cutter,
            Chipp can always post his DD-214 somewhere publicly,
            to vindicate himself and his documented military service.
            Or not.
            What else would be the appropriate response, from a “historian”?

          • MarineDad61 says:

            Daisy Cutter,
            Check the new comment from O4-E below.
            Asking to keep secrets?

            Perhaps he’ll now understand,
            that a PUBLIC full disclosure and apology,
            is his best (and only) way to minimize the damage
            he has caused to others, no less himself.

            Just wow.

          • Green Thumb says:

            I imagine he is slipping out his backdoor and headed home to All-Points Logistics.

            • MarineDad61 says:

              Green Thumb,
              Facebook update, 7pm.
              Chipp Reid updated his bio.
              Historian, author, specializing in naval and maritime history and Spanish North America

    • Mustang Major says:

      From Douglas “Chip” Reid’s book of face today:

      “Friends and fans — I have to admit to an embarrassing, stupid and immature boast that took on a life of its own and has now become an albatross. I am guilty of embellishing my military career. It started off as more of a mistake than anything else, not an attempt to extract benefits or much of anything. However, I do not want to live falsely and want to apologize profusely for any pain, insult, anger, frustration (all warranted) I have caused. I am truly sorry and can only ask that you all will allow me to regain your trust.”

      OK, all is forgiven- NOT!

      • Mason says:

        This “apology” is also part of the poser starter pack, isn’t it? Same thing from all these roaches when the light shines on them.

        • MarineDad61 says:

          If, by this weekend,
          the post is still up,
          and Chipp’s Book of Fake account (#1 of 2 or more)
          doesn’t magically go POOF,
          I’ll be seriously surprised.

          I already got the screenshots.

          More ammo, above, the SailorJamie comment,
          and our joint URL links to Chipp’s 2nd Book of Fake.

          You know… with his US Marines
          property owner warning sign (posted in 2016).
          As a scroll saving courtesy, here it is again.
          Presenting… The #2 (of 2 more) Book of Fake.

        • rgr769 says:

          I love how they always go with the generic, vague “I embellished my military service” or I “boasted” about my service. They never admit their specific lies.” So the reader of the “apology” doesn’t know specifically what they have done and said.

          Maybe Bob Neener should include this type of generic apology in his starter pack of fake medals/certificates for POSers, so they will have it in hand when they are exposed.

        • MarineDad61 says:

          Mustang Major, Mason, and rgr769,
          Chipp Reid’s #1 FakeBook account just went chain links POOF.
          This apology along with it. POOF.

          Crap, did I predict this one.
          Do the admins have the screenshot?
          I can email it to them.

      • Daisy Cutter says:

        At the risk of kicking a man when he is down and dissecting an “apology” – I have to say that he makes it sound like it was *his* choice to come clean and turn over a new leaf.

        “… I do not want to live falsely”

        It didn’t have anything to do with being outed today, did it? Or was that merely a coincidence and people unfairly jumped on him after he came out of the closet with his fake military career?

        At least he didn’t say:

        I’ve decided I do not want to live falsely”

      • Daisy Cutter says:

        Also of note – Chipp turned off the ability for anyone to comment. Most will not know what he is talking about – by design.

        First law of crisis management with Social Media – “Show us your warts.” People forgive. Many veterans won’t, but most others will.

        • MarineDad61 says:

          Daisy Cutter,
          Only for the Pinned Post,
          and a few recent posts.
          Scroll about 3 posts down further,
          and everything on down remains wide open.

          He isn’t too bright on FakeBook settings either, apparently.
          Don’t tell anyone.

      • AverageNCO says:

        A military career needs to exist before it can be embellished. He seems to have fabricated a military career, not embellish one.

        • MarineDad61 says:

          Embellishment is putting
          1 extra cluster on an earned medal,
          1 extra rank stripe from 3 to 4, or
          1 more combat sleeve hash from 1 to 2.

          Chipp invented a branch, then rank, AND medals.
          From nichts.
          That’s not embellishment.
          That’s LYING.
          2 Phony Purple Hearts is STOLEN VALOR at it’s worst.

          And trying to minimize it now with puff language..
          is nearly as bad.

          He has no idea the longevity of Google Fu.
          As I often say… Google is your friend. Until….

  23. USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

    Fucking loser.

    He looks like the type of guy who would say his Eagle, Globe and Anchor devices aren’t backwards, they only appear that way because of the reverse mirror effect in how the picture was taken and published later.

    (They’re still backwards, fuck-tard!)

  24. O-4E says:

    Just sent this from Chip via text:

    Me: “You can’t keep hiding comments forever guy. Best to fess up and hope you aren’t prosecuted”

    Chip: “You are entirely correct. I have already reached out to folks to explain. I became caught up in a stupid, immature, entirely disgusting — not even sure what to call it. As you can see, at least I have never ever used my claims to sell books. I even asked the Oak Island folks NOT mention anything about my service. I was wearing a USMC sweatshirt when I was there. All i ever say is I am a veteran, which is true. I sincerely apologize and will never, ever, purport to be anything other than who I am. All I really want is to be left alone, write my books that few people read anyway, and fade away. I apologize to you and everyone I have insulted.”

    • Green Thumb says:

      The fat fuck is sorry he got caught.

    • O-4E says:

      Me: “You didn’t make all this BS up because you thought it would hurt your book sales. No jury on earth is going to buy that story.”

      Chip: “I have no defense, no excuses, no possible explanation. it was a mistake that got away from me and took on a life of its own. I know you have no reason to believe anything I write to you, given the hugely stupid thing I have done. If you look at my book bios, they make no mention of anything more than being a veteran. Again, I cannot apologize enough and only wish to continue my work on Samuel Ball, and, more and more Spanish North America. I really do not want any trouble, or to cause anyone any pain or anger, although it is far too late for that. I simple ask to be left alone.”

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Great job.

        I am putting this here,
        so Chipp Reid can read about ANOTHER author.

        Perhaps Chipp can now research Martin LeBlanc (Blank),
        and see what the ex “Ghost Warrior” is doing today,
        only 13 months later.

        He can also find out what’s happening with Janet Gottlieb Salian,
        the not so ghost writer of the “Ghost Warrior” book.
        Janet’s on the Book of Fake, too.

        [Martin LeBlanc -Real Supply Clerk, Fake POW, Fake Purple Hearts, Fake Secret Operator
        Dave Hardin | March 12, 2020]

    • J_Facts says:

      This suggests he did not retain an attorney yet and doesn’t have the inclination to dispute it. An attorney would have advised him to admit to nothing… at least until they’ve assessed what claims are out in the public and what his defense would be.

      Then again, lawyers aren’t the best avenue. It’s surprising how far coming clean with a little bit of honesty will go.

      He’s got to accept the fact that his credibility as a historian will suffer from here going forward. His temptation for ‘street cred’ was possibly just too much.

      It sucks, but he is the one that put himself in this situation. As they say in the game of Poker, sometimes you just have to play out a bad hand.

      • rgr769 says:

        If one can’t tell the truth about one’s own personal history, how can readers have faith in his stories about someone else’s history.

        • O-4E says:

          He writes Marine history which is already very much filled with myth. Who would question anything he writes as long as it’s glowing and complementary

  25. Mustang Major says:

    Other than stolen valor, here is another problem with Douglas “Chipp” Reid: Author credibility.

    Doing proper historical research uncovering new knowledge is time-consuming work. The temptations of plagiarism (Doris Kearns Goodwin) and outright fabrications (Janet Cooke) offer unethical and intellectually weak researchers and writers an easy out from hours upon hours of research. Is this the case with Douglas “Chipp” Reid and his work?

    Pretending he is a Marine NCO saved Douglas “Chipp” Reid a lot of time and trouble en route to creating personal credibility. His unexplainable short time in the Army, and discharged as a private, presented no problem to “Chipp” dressing up like a Marine and claiming USMC service. (Wearing an unearned Purple Heart is reprehensible.)

    My advice to people, institutions, and organizations regarding Douglas “Chipp” Reid is to view his work with skepticism.

    Douglas “Chipp” Reid should publicly renounce his false claims of service to the organizations he deceived, as well as the public that may have read his works. He should also apologize to every Marine, past, and present for donning a USMC uniform and claiming USMC service.

  26. Steve Balm says:

    Another thing to point out is Reid is frequently seen with a USMC lanyard around his neck and a USMC flag pin on his lapel.

    USMC Lanyard - Pin

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Steve Balm,
      Well (to add to my comment above to O4-E)…
      This is for Chipp Reid to watch, and learn.

      This is what happens when a Phony Green Beret writes a book,
      goes on a speaking engagement book selling tour
      (with his not so ghost writer girlfriend)…
      and some legitimate Green Beret veterans show up.
      With questions.
      And then more questions.

      Q – Where is Martin LeBlanc (Blank) today?

      • Green Thumb says:

        I remember this old shitball.

        • rgr769 says:

          I left some love for him and his BS POSer book over at Amazon. There are still two copies available for about $15 a copy. He now has 60 reviews of the book all but one are one star and they all out him as a phony.

    • MI Ranger says:

      Man, I thought that was Signal Corps flags…I thought for sure he was legit! No ones claims to be the Signal Corps…its like being in the Air Force and saying yeah I worked in hospitality services as a waste management assistant (aka I took out the trash at the gym and hotel).

  27. BennSue says:

    top 3 results from Google-Fu are all links about his phony Marine service. As Jonn liked to say “The internet never forgets.” Good Luck in your future endeavors, Chippie.

  28. ninja says:

    Dude attended Widener University in Chester, PA from 1982-1986.

    Majored in English and History.

    Was Sports Writers for the University newspaper “The Dome”.

    Is this him?

    • PTBH says:

      Same guy – the irony here is that his Army Reserve records were supplied by the very organization that he works for. Different department, I’m sure.

    • Mustang Major says:

      Could be the one and the same guy. A lot of Annapolis residents fight traffic to and from DC every day. (Of course, now they sit at home, err “work remotely.”

  29. I hope this guy didn’t pick this embellishing shit from his Father and if he did, then he’d be a Chipp off the old block.

  30. Daisy Cutter says:

    News Tips, Capitol Gazette (Annapolis):

  31. Mustang Major says:

    The Navel Institute is located on the Naval Academy grounds. The Academy Superintendent should ban Douglas “Chip” Reid from the Naval Academy grounds.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Mustang Major,
      Agreed, 100%.
      In reality, Chipp has NO eligible ID, need, nor reason
      to step foot on the USNA.

      (Coming from a proud USNA Dad,
      who went through those gates a few times.)

      Note – He lives nearby.
      I should show up at his front door,
      wearing my Proud Marine Dad ball cap,
      and Marine Dad front license plate,
      which pokes out in Maryland, a 2 plate state.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Hopefully USNI (I’ve been a member for almost 40 years) will kick the Stolen Valor turdsickle known as Douglas “Cow Chipp” Reid to the curb.

  32. ninja says:

    Is he REALLY a Licensed Ship Captain?

    He HAS written for other newspapers…mostly for hometown newspapers in the CT area.

    However, an award winning columnist? Not too sure about that one.

    Most likely, he’s hiding something about his past.

    So sad.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Good question.
      Worthy of a poll.
      Or verification.

      Eating the fried assorted seafood Captain’s Feast platter
      at the restaurant overlooking the Annapolis sailboat docks
      doesn’t count, Chipp.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Notice the “War veteran” in Cold War veteran?
      Stick the word “Times” in there somewhere.
      Even “Cold War Times veteran” is a stretch with Captain Chipp.
      And now, minimizing with the word “embellishing”.

      What a weasel.
      A lying Stolen Valor Phony Purple Heart weasel.

      • ninja says:


        Ole Chipp is hiding something from his past.

        • MarineDad61 says:

          I remember the phone call from Jowers,
          the sob story he gave me (and others),
          the excuses he tried to pass off,
          and then the direct advice I gave him,
          which he largely ignored.

          More than Jowers,
          it would be interesting to know where fellow Sheriff election candidate LeRoy Foley is cooking his beans and grits these days.

  33. Hack Stone says:

    So what kind of coin does an E-1 over 9 rake in? He can finance a Dodge Charger with no money down and only 29.7% interest, and still have enough to make it rain at one of the lesser strip clubs outside of base.

      • rgr769 says:

        But that is only on AD. He apparently never spent a day on AD, per the FOIA response. I still can’t believe it took nine years to kick him to the curb, even if a large portion of it was IRR.

    People fought, bled and died who were awarded that. Other than the POW medal, it’s another one that no one wants to earn.

    FUCK YOU CHIPP, I along with others will NOT give up on this because it is UNFORGIVABLE.

        For example,

    to leave in Chipp Reid’s door handle, in the event no one answers.
    If someone answers, I’ll present the letter.


    Attn: Chipp Reid,
    I am in town, here to request from you,
    that you surrender to me these 3 medals from your US Marine uniform jacket.

    1. Purple Heart (with gold star device).
    2. Southwest Asia Campaign Medal.
    3. Liberation of Kuwait Medal.

    I will be in the area for a few hours.
    If you wish, you can leave them in a bag on your front door handle.
    Text me at xxx-xxx-xxxx, and I will return to receive these 3 medals from you.

    Thank you.
    Gulf War Veteran
    Father of 2 Marines (CPT and SGT).

    Let’s hope Chipp Reid sees this blog,
    and has the 3 medals in a bag, ready for a trouble free pick up.
    No personal contact necessary,
    if I see and recover the bag of medals.

    Open for advice.

      UPDATE —
      Departing early Friday morning for Ocean City, Maryland.

      Via Annapolis.

      I haven’t eaten at Chick & Ruth’s in 5 years,
      since my son was at the US Naval Academy.
      So, meet or no meet,
      Annapolis for lunch is on the GPS for this trip.

      I reached out directly to Chipp Reid, via FaceBook PM.

      (PM paste)
      Good morning. I wish to meet.
      Anywhere in public where you (and I) feel safe is fine.
      I will be in Annapolis today, Friday, passing through.

      I placed this blog comment on the VG website for you.

      Please let me know the best time and place for you.

      Many of you may recall my visit to Bob Walker in Chadds Ford, PA,
      which went (very) well under the awkward circumstances.

      This will likely be awkward, too,
      but at least I have made the effort
      to be discrete and non-confrontational,
      for the safety of everyone.

      I am taking my laptop along,
      so there may be a beach motel AAR.
      No promises on this one,
      motel wi-fi varies, and is often lousy.

      A sincere Thank You
      to those of you who sent me some wise advice
      via FaceBook PM and email.

    I drove to Annapolis to collect 3 medals, in a small bag.
    I brought home a whole lot more.

    Chipp Reid texted me this morning,
    just as I crossed the US50/US301 Bay Bridge,
    asking when I will be in Annapolis, and my expected arrival time.
    Back and forth texts, and he agreed to have me stop by his home.
    I honked, he came out, and he gave me a large trash bag.

    I put the trash bag in my car trunk, took out my lawn chair,
    and we spoke in his front yard for 40 minutes.

    When I left, I drove to Navy MC Stadium, and examined the contents of the trash bag.
    – Marine dress coat.
    – Marine dress blue trousers with red stripe.
    – ALL the medals (custom fabricated, can not be separated).
    – All inside a black suit bag with a gold logo for The Marine Shop.

    I took photos at Navy MC Stadium.
    Now home, I just scanned the medals and devices.

    I emailed 2 photos and 1 scan to a website admin.
    I have asked the admin to post the photos, for all to see.

    I’m whipped.
    460 miles of driving over 13 hours (side trip pitstop in Ocean City),
    beautiful weather, but constant high winds.
    I need a nap.

    AFTER ACTION REPORT with more details TOMORROW.

    Will include trip details, and bits and takeaways
    from the 40 minute conversation with Chipp Reid.
    I did assure Chipp that I will be fair and reasonable
    with anything I type on this page.

    Yes, he’s remorseful,
    enough so to voluntarily give me his fake Marine E-7 dress uniform
    and phony medals with excessive phony devices.

      Way to lead the fight.

      Get some rest.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Green Thumb,
        Rested, but feeling like a next day hangover.
        Hopefully, the AAR is up tomorrow.

    • Mustang Major says:

      Wow! Nice work, MarineDad61. Can’t wait for the after action report.

      Just wondering, was Chip aware of TAH or MP prior to his day in the sun?

      BTW: I spent a fair amount of time in Annapolis and the Academy. We had Navy season tickets for a few years. We also sponsored midshipmen for a number of years. Nice memories.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Mustang Major,
        Thank you.

        I’ve only been inside the stadium twice,
        1 home game, and graduation.

        I saw senior year Army/Navy game in Philadelphia.

        To my knowledge, no.
        I told Chipp my own personal family Phony Navy SEAL story,
        and he wasn’t aware of anything online about Phony SEALs, either.

        I thought EVERYONE in Annapolis was on the phony watch
        for anything Navy or Marines.
        Obviously, I was way off.

    • rgr769 says:

      Kudos! You really did some yeoman’s service on that mission.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      BZ for your work…

      • MarineDad61 says:

        The big BZ goes to MP and VG.
        Happy to contribute some occasional voluntary “mop up detail”.

    “took out my lawn chair”

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Got you a lawn chair photo (above).
      Not quite the new sheriff in town.
      Not exactly Blazing Saddles.
      But I anticipated the possibility of a similar town welcome.

  45. MarineDad61 says:

    While I am writing notes and working on the AAR,
    I have some new questions.

    What would everyone like me to do with…
    1 – The uniform?
    2 – The custom medals rack?
    A friend suggested a ceremonial video Hibachi burning of the medals.
    But the jacket and trousers are too large for a Hibachi.

    3 – Is there a Stolen Valor museum, or a collector,
    who acquires (and displays) phony gear?

    4 – Shall I call out here (for Google Fu internet posterior)
    the 2 companies that worked together to build a custom medals set,
    cashing in, and in effect acting as Phony Enablers,
    since neither company bothered to verify 2 Purple Hearts?

    5 – Would a local Army/Navy or Military Surplus
    be a place to sell the jacket and trousers
    (and enable me to DONATE the proceeds to MP)?

    Or, is a Marine dress jacket with sewed on E-7 too rare,
    and only serve to enable a present or
    future phony?

    If anyone has questions for me as well, now is the time.

    Thank you again, to all of you, who brought this story to life,
    and assisted me in making yesterday’s trip a success. 🙂

    • Claw says:

      Question: Did he talk about ever doing (even one day) any actual active service?

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Chipp talked about several instances of being “mobilized”,
        including to Europe, but I didn’t dig further.
        From what I remember him telling me,
        it could all have fallen under the 2-3 week windows of Annual Training.

        Chipp Reid likely has the
        Army Reserve Components Overseas Training Ribbon,
        with a number on it
        (just as I do, for 2 Annual Training trips to Germany).
        But there is NO medal version of this ribbon,
        and it’s likely Chipp checked this out at The Marine Shop.

    • Green Thumb says:

      Send the to All-Points Logistics.

      They can place them in their “Hall of Honor” for the fallen and exposed.

  46. MarineDad61 says:

    AAR soon, hopefully tomorrow.
    Until then….
    “The light is strong and the man is weak
    And the world walks in between”

    • MarineDad61 says:

      This page just topped 200 comments,
      and whether he knows it or not,
      Chipp Reid is now entering the major league all-star game,
      and not in a good way.

    • Green Thumb says:

      Hey man, I hate to say this, and when I do, I am going to come across as a hypocrite.

      But you did state the clown was remorseful, you gave a fairly detailed synopsis of the meet and he, in turn, surrendered (voluntarily) his poser gear.

      Dude is a shitbag, for sure. And you stepped up for the meet and “forced” the apology. For this, respect.

      Lets just see where it goes.

      Can’t foster the peace accords then talk shit until the fuck up.

      Keeping it simple, but the point is clear.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Green Thumb,
        Well, I hope I helped to wrap up this one properly.
        Kudos to MP and VG for nailing him with great accuracy,
        E-1 being the only (and quite understandable) error (E-2).

  47. MarineDad61 says:

    AFTER ACTION REPORT – The April 30 Annapolis Trip.

    Note – I didn’t expect to see Chipp Reid,
    no less actually have a conversation.
    Again, my sole reason for traveling from PA to Maryland
    was to pick up 3 big unearned medals in a small bag.
    So, there were few questions from me, and I took no notes.
    I am going on home notes and memory.

    As I promised Chipp Reid, this will be fair and reasonable

    QUOTES – I will begin with quotes from Chipp Reid.
    “Angry at myself.”
    “I couldn’t say no. Until now.”
    “I’m a piece of shit.”
    “I deserve everything I get for this.”
    “I know now…. that I’ve insulted everyone that wears that uniform or any of those medals.
    I truly apologize to all veterans, and every Marine, that wears this uniform and these medals.”
    “This will never happen again.”

    When Chipp was discussing his service in the Army Reserves,
    I asked him the highest rank he achieved, his final rank (E-1 or E-2),
    and the reason for the final rank.
    Chipp rose to the rank of E-4. He explained that…
    – On multiple occasions, he submitted a letter to his OIC or LT,
    stating that he would be absent from drills for a period of time.
    (1 letter was for a 6 month absence.)
    He wasn’t asking for permission. He was informing them, and then splitting for the amount of time and drills he listed,
    whether approved or unapproved.
    – On multiple occasions, he would “mouth off”,
    explaining that “I couldn’t keep my mouth shut” with junior officers,
    and this led to 2 separate demotions.
    E-4 to E-3, and years later, E-3 to E-2.
    He also explained that his service in his MOS was actually valuable, he was respected for this work, and his undermanned unit could not replace him easily, so he was not booted for the insubordinations, nor the absences, but he was not treated all that well by officers, NCOs, nor peers, either.
    I did not ask for further specifics,
    but it is clear that his lousy attitude at the time,
    his approved and unapproved absences from drill and duty,
    his ongoing “mouthing off” towards the unit junior officers,
    and his subsequent reductions in rank,
    led him to choose to quit the Army Reserves,
    and ETS at 9 years as an E-2 Private.

    Before I could think to ask, Chipp Reid gave me the reasons why he would do this in the first place. His military maritime history hobby has always led to new contacts and acquaintances, many asking him about his own military history and service.
    At first, early on, his answers were minimal and truthful,
    but uninteresting (like most of us).
    As new encounters and new questions continued and grew, trending with loaded questions of whether he was a Marine, or a war veteran,
    in a crowd with some VIPs,
    he broke and answered “yes” to being a Marine.
    From there and then, his concern was about being caught with both yes and no answers by anyone in this maritime history community.
    He “couldn’t say no”, and continued to build upon the yes.

    I did not ask specifically about active duty, but Chipp went into some detail about being “mobilized” on several occasions, including to Europe.
    Nothing of any length or hostile areas was ever discussed,
    so I concluded that it could all have fallen under the 2-3 week windows of Reserves Annual Training.
    Chipp Reid likely has the Army Reserve Components Overseas Training Ribbon, with a number on it (just as I have, for my 2 National Guard Annual Training trips to Germany in summer 1990 & 2002).
    For a lack of active duty records of any kind,
    this would turn up on his Reserves records,
    along with some other medals and ribbons
    (I’ll assume no Good Conduct,
    but an Army Achievement Medal is likely in there),
    which I did not ask about, and we did not discuss.

    Despite this blog’s fat jokes based on the photos,
    Chipp has lost weight compared to the photos.
    Normal weight, not fat, not thin.

    He also appeared gray and gaunt.
    Based on the content of our long conversation, I conclude that this is due to a combination of
    his evaluation of his own life,
    the effects of 2020 virus isolation (which affects many),
    and now in recent days, his present state of mind
    based on his new and current pickle and predicament.

    Most phonies, fakes, and Stolen Valor criminals
    do not deserve this evaluation, nor consideration.

    In my opinion, Chipp Reid does.

    In the ways we hope and expect from all those outed
    for their Military Phony and Stolen Valor shenanigans,
    other than the minimalist public apology on his on FaceBook page,
    Chipp Reid has stepped up, stepped down, and stepped back
    in proper and appropriate ways that acknowledge his bad behaviors,
    subjects himself to the judgments of his (small) circle of friends and acquaintances, claims to have already removed himself from organizations, and shed himself of the tools and accessories to repeat any claims of medals, war, active duty service, or service as a Marine.

    (Compare to the 18 months of Les Brown and his friends in Elko, Nevada.)

    Chipp Reid is a trove of knowledge about 18th and early 19th century colonial US and world maritime history.
    In our conversation, he was happy to expand on this, and I listened to some,
    but also unfairly cut him off more than once,
    to return the discussion to the present,
    and to this topic, the purpose of my visit.
    He intends to write again, he is writing (long projects) now,
    and current works will take a year or more to complete.
    He knows his audience is small,
    and his actions and behavior documented on this webpage
    further shrink his small audience and reputation.

    Chipp Reid comes closer to being a remorseful broken man
    than most other military phonies.
    He acknowledges that this is his own doing,
    he carried guilt while posing,
    but also went (more than) a bridge too far,
    and got himself caught and exposed.
    He now owns the responsibility and blame for beginning, continuing, and then failing to stop pretending to be a Marine.

    He feels the duress, he doesn’t lash out,
    he doesn’t scapegoat, and he doesn’t counter attack anyone.

    He treated me with respect and humility,
    surely out of concern and fear,
    and also despite the possibility that I might be hostile,
    and not as polite as I tried to be.
    He is already in retreat, and headed for further self induced isolation.

    In this forum, it is highly unlikely that we will ever again
    hear future reports of poor behavior about Chipp Reid.

    Good luck, Chipp.

    (I end this AAR with a copy of Chipp Reid quotes from above)

    “I know now…. that I’ve insulted everyone that wears that uniform or any of those medals.
    I truly apologize to all veterans, and every Marine,
    that wears this uniform and these medals.”

    “This will never happen again.”

      Shame that all that knowledge is painted with skepticism
      due to the less than honest actions of the holder.
      There is a certain punishment in continuing to do what
      one has always enjoyed but having it also serve as a
      constant reminder of our own failings.

    • Hack Stone says:

      It’s One thing to claim military service to be accepted by those you socialize with, but it took it up several notches by not only verbally making those claims, but went to the effort and expense of acquiring a Marine Corps dress uniform and medals. That is not the action of a casual poser, but one who was fully committed to living the lie.

      And to what benefit did he gain from these lies? He could have been a successful military historian without the outright lies, but now with his reputation destroyed, through his own actions, his credibility has dropped to zero. And every Marine knows that Credibility is a Leadership Trait. Much like those who start a charity to help veterans, but believe that they need some war stories to attract attention to their cause. When it comes to light, the entire charity crashes down, tarnishing the reputation of anyone associated with it.

      Chipp is remorseful now, but he needs to deal with the consequences of his web of lies spanning decades. Sucks being him.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        Hack Stone,
        Your wisdom precedes you.
        “When it comes to light, the entire charity crashes down”

        Based on your comment, I looked up a familiar charity’s webpage.
        For those who don’t remember, it’s Nevada’s
        Elko POW*MIA Awareness Ass.

        Gone. The Verizon dead URL page comes up.

        Perhaps this charity lives on, so I checked the Book of Fake.

    • OWB says:

      What usually seems to happen is that after a while, the poser really misses the attention from the lies and slips back into the phony life. In this guy’s case, his lies about this will inevitably cast a shadow upon his research and writing. Will he be able to continue to cope with his loss of status? Only time will tell. Owning it is a good first step but there are many more to come.

  48. Poetrooper says:

    Chipp sounds genuinely contrite and reconciled to his fate as a poseur.

    As an old geezer with countless mistakes that he’s now sorry for when looking back on his eight decades of existence, ol’ Poe suggests we might want to cut this guy some slack.

    But that’s essentially a call for you Jarheads lurking here to make–it was your valor he stole…
