If you were to believe him, he stuffed an awful lot of soldiering into just over a year of active duty.

“…Hamm faces up to twenty years in federal prison.”



Check out Derek Robert Hamm on this YouTube video posted 2 years ago.

He said he lost his Father.

Someone made a comment 8 months ago that his Father is still alive.

Greed. Money. Attention Seeker.

You Be The Judge.



Ughhh. That video is hard to watch. The ball sack pubic hair beard, all the necklaces, and the “veteran” tattoo look.


Holy Bling!!
Holy bling.

Let’s see if youtube linky expands, when youtu.be linky does not.


Someone dun make that linky private…Methinks someone is monitoring the googlez and TAH ? 🙂 ?


MarineDad61 and ChipNASA:

Well, well, well…How interesting…

Which means someone is hiding something…or the owner of that YouTube site is embarrassed…

Same thing happened a couple of years ago with that phony Vietnam POW Baby Killer Killam and the 1st SEAC. The video where Killam talked about his “POW” experience went *POOF!!!* right after it showed up on TAH.

How convienant…*sarc*



The 1st SEAC also went *POOF*


ChipNASA & ninja,
The F U of Google is strong with this church(‘s YouTube channel).
Another church that cites god & everything else of goodness,
while squashing the truth, the association with a turd,
and turning into holy phony defender.
More than holy bling.
Now holy shit.


He said he was a SGT in the US Army and spent 7 months in Iraq:



Here is the full false statement (come after me linkedoff!):


United States Army

Jan 2001 – Aug 2008 7 years 8 months

I spent 22 months and 18 days in Iraq and several other countries in the middle east. I was apart of 3 Major operations in theater and several Special Operations. I served my country proudly and am looking to serve a great company proudly as well!

edit: link removed. Also, adding observation: This Hamm samitch done rottened.

From CBS19:

In 2005, [Hamm] was also convicted for assault of a family member, a domestic violence misdemeanor under state law. According to federal law, he is also prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition due to his domestic violence conviction.

ninja & Roh-Dog,
Further.. Army National Guard part time is NOT US Army.
Also, his mid 2000s criminal history would certainly bar NG reenlistment,
if not a much sooner BOOT.

So, he could be like many National Guard veterans,
with 1 call up, possibly overseas too (possible Germany like Les Brown),
and then dick it all up afterwards.
And then lie and embellish after that.

This is his “active” linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/d-wayne-h-54673b59/


I see he claims to be an NRA certified weapons instructor since 2011. I’d like to know how he pulls that off since he is barred from possessing or handling firearms by virtue of his criminal conviction for domestic assault and battery.

I do know a guy who joined in early 1989, did IET and ABS, went to his unit, jumped into Panama, was wounded and discharged all in just over a year.

That ain’t him though.

He was in national guard for 1 year. He is from my home town in Indiana. He has major fucking issues he told people he owned oil wells and 12 helicopters just absolutely no truth left his mouth.

He’s apparently more full of shit than the Dallas, OKC, Kansas City, Amarillo and Chicago Stock yards all put together!

30 miles to my west and if there was not any issues to deal with family in the hospital….be thankful, Hamm…be thankful I don’t have the time to give you an earful.
