Rich Johnson – Stolen Valor Double Dipper

| October 24, 2022

Richard Elmer Johnson


The folks at MilitaryPhony send us their work on Richard Elmer Johson.  It seems that little Dickie here has been making a Richard of himself and should probably stick to playing with his Johnson in private. 

Johnson was featured in the November 12, 2020 issue of the magazine “The Flagship” as a nominee in a section that appeared to list candidates for “Military Retiree of the Year.” Johnson was featured on Page C8 as a nominee. In the profile, it appears that he was an E-5 in the Army and an E-6 in the U.S. Marines – if we are reading that correctly. It goes on to say that he had an 11-year military career and was a P.O.W. for 12 days during Operation Enduring Freedom until he escaped with his First Sergeant.  It also states that “while in the Marine Corps I made Staff NCO” and was “part of the 10th Battalion Rangers and attached with the 101st Airborne in the Army.”

I served with 10th Marines for years and “made” SNCO while I was there but,  I never knew it was a Ranger Battalion.  Oh… the derp with this idiot runs deep.   P.O.W ?  Really? YHGTBFWM 

A similar profile of Johnson also appeared in Military News, in May 2021 which appears to be a publication related to The Flagship.  It was essentially the same writeup.

It has been reported that for a Veteran’s Day event in 2021, Johnson wore medals on his jacket.  He wore the same jacket and medals later that evening at an American Legion meeting. The following photos were submitted as proof.The following photo was edited to highlight the awards. The one medal looks like a Purple Heart.  Another appears to be a GWOT (Global War on Terrorism), but it is hard to tell. Johnson is the commander of American Legion Post 280 in Chesapeake, VA.  One can see the “280” on his cap in most of these photos.

Richard Johnson – American Legion Post 280 Commander

. . . . .

SWIRLING SUSPICIONS The following assertions have been relayed to us via a 3rd party.  We cannot substantiate any of it, so please treat its value accordingly.
  • Many members of the American Legion have asked specifics on the POW claim as well as serving with the Rangers or 101st Airborne – they felt that he hasn’t provided an answer that was truthful in their view.
  • Allegedly Johnson has had family members state he never served much less had been a POW.
  • Johnson has claimed to be an NRA instructor but has asked members of the American Legion for help to pass the qualification.  As a Marine or soldier, the members of the Legion felt he would have known how to shoot so this struck some as very odd.
  • An individual had spoken to Johnson’s family, and a family member had said that Mr. Johnson was JROTC in high school and had always wanted to join the service. He went to boot camp/ basic training (the service branch was not mentioned, however) but did not graduate. There was no reason given as to why he allegedly did not graduate.


All of this doubt and speculation prompted people to contact Military Phony to see if we were could help to get to the bottom of Johnson’s claims.

. . . . .

ACTIONS CONDUCTED BY MILITARY PHONIES Richard Johnson’s military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  We had to file with the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) to account for all claims. Just to help summarize – both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps pointed to the NPRC as the most likely organization to hold Johnson’s military records.

. . . . .



FOIA Result – HRC – Richard Johnson – Cover Letter pg1

 . . . . .


FOIA Result – USMC – Richard Johnson – Cover Letter

. . . . .


We searched the DoD Manpower Data Center database and found the following service listing for Richard Elmer Johnson.

DoD Manpower Data Center (SCRA) – Richard Johnson

This database was also searched for any other active duty to the present day. It did not show any other service dates, but sometimes the database is unreliable for recall to active duty from reserve status. This appears to be consistent with all of Johnson’s FOIA responses, however.

. . . . .


FOIA Results – NPRC – Richard Johnson

NOTE: Richard Johnson has several prior addresses in Michigan, so the place of entry is not unreasonable.

Also, the cover letter from the NPRC made a statement about Army service.

So, the NPRC is saying there was no Army service identified after 1995.

. . . . .



There are discrepancies between Johnson’s claim of being in the Army for 5 years and then being in the Marine Corps for 6 years.  Giving it the benefit of the doubt, this may have been a bad interpretation of the profile sheet. (see below)

However, there is no mistake regarding a claim of 11 years in the military.  Since the NPRC results show 1994 and 1995, this would have been when Johnson was 18-19 years old.  This most probably represents his first connection with the military beyond a potential stint in JROTC.  Stated another way, it would have been hard to squeeze in an enlistment in the Marine Corps before the ages of 18-19, especially the years that he claimed.

The entire Army service is listed as ‘INACTIVE” which means he wasn’t even drilling weekends in the Army Reserve.  Basically, he was in the inactive reserves which essentially means he was on a list to be recalled if necessary. Then, the DoD Manpower / SCRA results seem to address 1996 which would have been a year later.  He was in the Marine Corps Reserve.  However, it was only for a few months – 39 days to be exact.  This does not appear to be enough time to complete basic training if this is what this active duty represents. However, there was little to no opportunity for him to have been in combat during this short period of active duty.


Johnson was discharged from the Army as a PV2 (E-2) vs. the SGT (E-5) claimed.  No indication of a Marine Corps rank.  The USMC could not locate records on him and pointed to the NPRC, which only came up with inactive Army reserve records.


There is no supportive documentation that shows Johnson attending or completing Airborne training.  He speaks of serving with the “10th Battalion Rangers and attached with the 101th Airborne” while in the Army.  Perhaps he meant in some support role and was not Airborne qualified.  The implication is strong, however.


His records do not support the claims that Johnson served in combat.  He would have had to serve in combat to be a recipient of the Purple Heart.  It is not in any of the FOIA results we obtained.


Johnson’s records show no award of the Purple Heart.  There is not even an NDSM listed so that further points to him not completing basic training.


Johnson is not listed in the obvious places – he is not accounted for under the DPAA database lists. Although one can split hairs over everything else, this is the most egregious of the claims.


If Richard Elmer Johnson has used any of these claims to gain anything of value, he could violate the Stolen Valor Act.

Well, well. It looks like little Dickie has some splainin’ to do. There seem to be a lot of people under the impression he did 11 years of military service but even if you use new math, it doesn’t add up.  P.O.W. claims ?  That kind of thing just turns my stomach.  Purple Heart ?  Why doesn’t the Marine Corps or Army seem to know anything about that?  

A member of the VFW is required to submit a copy of their DD214 to join a Post.  Did Richard Johnson submit a falsified version of an official government document to become a member of the VFW? 

Why,  somebody please explain why the VFW American Legion did not require an officer in the VFW  American Legion to have their records verified before being sworn in.  If these claims are indeed false and Richard Johnson can not prove otherwise,  I also hold the VFW American Legion responsible.  They will have damaged the reputation of Veterans everywhere and need to held accountable. 

I am a USCCA Certified Instructor and Range Safety Officer. Richard appears to have made claims about being a firearms instructor.  People like Richard Johnson never seem to be able to do the actual work required to accomplish those kinds of things in life.  I have lost count of how many fake and embellished beyond recognition service claims we have exposed in the firearms industry. 

Lance the festering ego of a bloviated blowhard and you are left with little more than a fart in the wind.

When Dick Johnson was in the 101th he did a lot of gay porn so much so that he can’t recall doing it. The scene where he and his “First Sergeant” were “Captured by the enemy” was epic. This explains the confusion.


Hey, yeah, was he in “Quad Desert Anal Fury”? (No, wait, that had a woman in it… )

Dick Johnson is a two-fer.

Was this film and All-Points Logistics production?

WHOA! He’s in The American Legion, not the VFW.


He says both in his biopic.


Wondering how hard it could be to verify
Before ending up with a mess like this


It must be hard to go through life with a name like that.


Ask Jimmy Johnson.

Hack Stone

Hack Stone went to school with an Asian kid who had a brother named Richard Wang.



Daisy Cutter

With the P.O.W. claim, he could be pulling a Trifecta, but he definitely is double-dipping.

Hack Stone

He is definitely All Points Logistics material.


The P.O.W. episode when he was behind the porn shop “doing his thing” and a line had formed but it started to rain. He decided to jump in the dumpster with his “current object of attention” to finish and invited those waiting for their turn to jump in also.

Somehow when he got through everybody in line and was on the last guy, the dumpster door got stuck closed with no way to open it from the inside. Both were freed when the porn shop closed and the worker went to dump the trashcan full of used paper towels from the video booths. They woke up when the wet paper towels landed on them.

Daisy Cutter

He was a member of the VFW, but he was also an American Legion Post Commander – Post 280 in Chesapeake, VA.


After taking a close look at those images with the medals both here at TAH and over at MilitaryPhony, in my opinion little Dickie’s bogus military medals appear to be (from left to right as you look at them):

  • POW Medal
  • Bronze Star
  • Purple Heart
  • Meritorious Service Medal

Is there any sign of a motorcycle, a leather vest covered in POSer bling, a camouflage doo-rag, a pair of dumbass-looking white-framed wrap-around mirror-lens sunglasses, a USMC Force Recon “Death Before Dishonor” tattoo, and a service dog for the dreaded PTS of the D anywhere in this steaming hot mess?

There’s just gotta be. It’ll be so very disappointing if there isn’t.


Here you go, Mick.

Picture taken around 18 October 2022 at the American Legion Post 280 Commander’s Dinner in Chesapeake. You may recognize a member of the January 6 Committee in the picture….😆😅🤣😂


Another one for our beloved Mick…

It’s him…



His name tag says Gunny Bill. This is a different man….

Green Thumb

Then dudes with those “Death Before Dishonor” tattoos are usually the first dudes out the bar room door in a fight….


Discretion is the better part of valor. 😂


Even a famous SEAL sniper said his Master Chief stressed it was a good idea to run like hell after you punch out someone at the start of a bar fight. That way, you are out of the AO when the SP’s or the police show up.


Exactly! My plan is to punch my intended target in the mouth, make sure he goes down and scoot before the law shows up. I don’t want to be in a barroom brawl, I just want to drop the mo fo that I don’t like. What happens afterwards really is no concern of mine.

That’s a Civil Air Patrol Meritorious Service award. I have one, but then I was a CAP member for quite some time.


That’s a new one on me. A phony wearing a CAP award? Former cadet here and that really pisses me off.

Dennis - not chevy

You should have been here when Heavy Chevy was telling his tales of glory. Amongst his other stories, he was a Lt Col in the CAP; and he flew compass call during Desert Storm.
I enjoyed it when one of his several ex-wives told her stories of how he ate her cheese and grapes.
His stories were like Macho Grande; one never gets over Macho Grande.


Uh, I was. Look at the threads, you’ll see me there. That was 2 ranks ago. Some of the hardest hitting and funniest comments were mine, if I do say so myself. 🤣

Well done. Please do pardon me as I am behind in my TAH reading. I sincerely wish some sock puppets would show up.

More like in front of it, bent over, and grabbing his ankles.


Aaaaand once again, a VFW and AL poser. This is my shocked face:  🙄 


American Legion vs VFW —

There is nothing that shows that he is a VFW “officer”,
no less a VFW Post member.
He could in fact be only a “social member”,
a home association member of a VFW Post’s bar, or “canteen”.

Many of us also see town drunks and village idiots,
who join the “canteen” as a social member,
and then waltz around town using the phrase
“I’m a member of the VFW”.

So, the VFW appears to be off the hook on this turd.

That said, the American Legion is guilty here.
Even with the new relaxed eligibility requirements,
failing out of basic training at 39 days is NOT Legion eligible.
Worse, that Legion post voted him in as a post “officer”.

I sure hope it’s the American Legion Post
that strove to get to the truth
about their Phony Commander.


It wasn’t really clear if Johnson continues to hold the title of Post Commander American Legion Post 280. He held it a few years ago but could not find reference to him still being in that position.


Ladies Auxillary?


Johnson Investigations LLC in Chesapeake, VA became Inactive on 22 February 2022:

Hack Stone

He should merge with Prudential Associates. He can swap war stories with Jared Stern, and Jared can demonstrate how to urinate in a Gatorade bottle.




[Why, somebody please explain
why the VFW did not require an officer in the VFW
to have their records verified before being sworn in.]

Answer — The VFW delegates membership approval to the Post level.

VFW Posts are required to verify VFW eligibility for new applicants,
Post transfers, and “At Large” transfers.

Posts are NOT required to re-verify VFW eligibility
when Post members run for elected office at their own VFW Post.

Only when a VFW member runs for higher offices,
elected District or Department positions,
is DEPARTMENT (state HQ) required to re-verify VFW eligibility.

This system does not work well,
rife with dusty desk drawers at VFW Posts and Departments,
and plenty of beer buddy “Yeah, he’s good” vouching.

VFW Post Phony Hives
(like Elko, Nevada and others) are the result.

That said, there appears to be NO VFW issue here.


Can anyone detail the American Legion FAIL here???

Mustang Major

Unless alcohol sales numbers decline, there isn’t usually a problem.


I don’t understand these places. If someone is a liar, they have to suspect others are as well. Do they get together, drink beer and knowingly swap lies?


They try to out lie each other. Outliers.


I’m a member of both organizations and there has been a push on members providing DD214’s at the posts that I’m affiliated with. That being said, I would prefer that each member sign a SF180 and designate someone like the post adjutant to receive the information instead of relying on a DD214 provided by the member. We’ve all seen far too many cases of falsified documents on this site to trust that genuine paperwork is being provided.



Here at TAH, those places are known as “hives of POSers”.

The POSers that inhabit those “hives” find safety in numbers.

Please see Elko Nevada.

Two (2) Email addresses associated with him:

Hey, he’s just carrying on the proud legacy of the “Recon Rangers” from the “Vietnam Times.” I wonder what ever became of that proud, Native American refrigerator repairman?


He is MIA. Wonder if his deposition was ever taken in Sandman’s lawsuits. I would have loved to have taken that one. There is nothing better as an attorney than taking the depo of someone when you know more about what they are supposed to know than they do.


Didn’t we just talk about Phonies that are American Indians…

Oh, wait a second..


A former Marine who happens to be American Indian who lied to the public about serving in the Viet of The Nam and painted himself a Victim.

He was born in February 1955, NOT 1954 or 1953.

Another Embellisher/Phony who tried to cover up his failed Military service.


Considering his probable level of competence in performing his assigned job, I would suggest “Chief Smoking Fridge.”

Huffing that freon. We had a few Amtrack crew members get busted for huffing the cleaning solution they used for PM’ing the AAV’s way back in the day.


Robert or Richard?

Why does the headline (and URL) for MP say Robert Elmer Johnson?

The body of MP (and this VG article) say Richard.

Public Information.


Well, coincidently, there is someone with the same name and DOB with a matching city in Virginia who was arrested in 2009 for trespassing and sentenced to 90 days in jail with the sentence suspended and put on unspervised probation for 2 years. He finally paid his fine in 2012.

Same dude was charged in 2010 with a felon for grand larceny. It was downgraded to a misdemenor for petit larceny.


That’s him.




Prisoner. Courtesy of 2 cities in Virginia.

Of War? Well, his arrests happened in 2009 and 2010 in areas where the US Military is strong…and in the timeframe of what we did in the Middle East…

So, yeah. He was a POW..(sarc)

As shared, Embellishers and Liars are always covering up something, i.e. a not so good Discharge, a Demotion, a Bar To Reenlistment, etc.

They hide behind “elite” Military units, such as the 101st, the 82nd…or skills/training such as SEALs, RANGERs, Airborne, Air Assault, Snipers..

Somewhere in the Road Of Life, they failed. Instead of admitting to their failures, they stay in denial and create an alternate reality version of themselves.

We have seen it too many times with Military Embellishers and Liars featured on TAH.

Eventually, they get caught…and called out….

Sadly, some will go to their graves never admitting their military lies and embellishments.


There are common themes that bring the motives into focus.

Dean A. Hoffman

So true.


POW does not mean in county jail here, dummy needs to know.


So, he is a thief, thief in addition to being a valor thief.

jeff LPH 3 63-66

I was able to join the VFW at a time when they were looking for members and since I wasn’t a WW2, Korean War and Viet-Nam Vet, Op Power Pack Vets (not a declared war) were accepted which was listed on my DD-214 which I mailed in and was accepted as a member. The DD-214 had the AFEM listed and had (Dominican Republic area) in paretheses)


At the risk of helping ol’ Richie out here, there are no Marine Corps records that came back from the NPRC, but they should have picked up his Marine Corps service even if it was 39 full days.

No Army service after 1995 so it would have been hard to squeeze in 5 years of Army enlistment time before the age of 20.

*Maybe* and I stress *maybe*, he could have had a longer career in the Marine Corps Reserve, been activated for OEF which was off the books in terms of SCRA picking it up.

Then, it crosses over into the bizarre…

*Maybe* he had been captured by the enemy, escaped, and DPAA failed to account for it.
*Maybe* he was awarded a Purple Heart in some super secret ceremony because he was behind enemy lines in a place that the Pentagon won’t acknowledge.
*Maybe* he got one of those US Marine Corps field promotions to Staff NCO.

I jest – but perhaps there is a reasonable explanation for all of this. It is incumbent upon him to explain the inconsistency.


Super-secret time travel mission and his records got destroyed in the ’73 fire?


I keep thinking “signed up but never showed up””


World’s longest Delayed Entry Program participant?

The American Legion failed to fact check when they included a Phony in one of their magazine articles:

“Barbara Wright’s late husband believed he was exposed to Agent Orange in Korea in 1962 and 1963. However, VA only recognizes claims from servicemembers who can establish they were at the DMZ between April 1968 and August 1971. Joe Dunagan was part of a clandestine Army special ops unit whose records remain classified, so he was never able to prove he’d served overseas, Wright says.”

TAH fact checked Barbara’s claim with her late husband’s records. There is a 24 minute audio video in the link as well. She claims to be an expert about the military:

Barbara wrote this about her late husband:

He NEVER served in Korea.


We believe Barbara’s late husband was called up for Active Duty with this unit:

Research indicates he may have hurt his back while unloading equipment at Fort Lewis. Probably why he was relieved from active duty.

He may have heard Cold War exercise scenarios and somehow blended that information into his real life, i.e. lied and embellished about his service, an alternate reality world.

Barbara said she knows alot about the military because she said both of her parents served during WW2. Well, she stretched that one. Her Mother joined the Navy during WW2, but her service did not last long. Research indicates her Mother may have never completed Navy Boot Camp.

Same with her biological father and her stepfather.

Her Mother tried to get SS and VA Disibility and was denied. The same with her husband, Joseph, who was also denied. Barbara was his 4th wife.

After research, we think she may not be all there in the brain department.


Lots of folk served during WWII and many couldn’t cut it even so. Just the way it happened.



She used her parents by embellishing her parent’s military service during WW2.

She made it sound as if both parents went off to War, i.e. boots on the ground in the Pacific and Europe when in reality, one of them lasted less than 2 weeks and the other about 4 weeks while Stateside.

She claims she knows all about Military records because her parents served during WW2. See where we are going with this? There is a pattern here, i.e. her Mother filing for SS and VA Disability, which were denied and then her late husband.

She also embellished her education that she listed in the above article.

In the 24 minute video in the TAH post, she tries to come across that she knows EVERYTHING. That she is smarter than the average Bear. That she is an expert.

She is none of the 3. Somewhere along the Road of Life, a few screws in her brain as well as marbles disappeared.


We did ALOT of research on the 32nd. We have their yearbook when they were called up to go to Lewis in the early 1960s.

Barbara’s new claim is that her late husband since secret skiing missions while in Korea.

He never served in Korea. Never.

After researching the 32nd and their mission, we believe her late husband took the Exercise Training scenarios the 32nd went thru to include skiing in areas surrounding Lewis and made them into a “real” story to impress Barbara and everyone else. Once a person tells a lie, they either can’t stop or their lies get bigger to cover those other lies. Please read the TAH posting and listen to her 24 minute rant.

If she was really an expert on Military records, she would have realized that hubby was taking her for a ride.

It is so sad.


Joe’s records are published on TAH. Barbara is in denial about that.

The reality was Joe was a National Guard Soldier who was called up to Active Duty with the 32nd to Lewis, hurt his back while unloading equipment from a truck at Lewis (well, that is what HE said, but there are no records to prove it) and was released from Active Duty.

Barbara keeps saying she knows other Veterans that served with Joe in Korea during that “spooky operation”, yet refuses to give names because she may get those people in trouble.

Yeah. Right.

So Sad.


It can be VERY sad when it comes to lonely, vulnerable women who get cruelly deceived by POSers.

I’ve known a couple of women who refused to accept that they’d been duped, even when they were presented with irrefutable evidence that they’d been lied to, sometimes for years on end.


She is a Democrat from Oregon.

She wrote this in October 2020:

“As you all know I lost my husband Joe to cancer in March of 2018. We had been fighting since 2001 to get the benefits that he was promised when he joined the military and was denied due to lack of records and now I have been put in a position where I need to retain legal counsel to force the CIA and DOD into writing the letter necessary to get my husbands claims through. I am told I need a JAG Attorney, someone who know how to speak their language and I have one who is willing to do it but needs a retainer. I have sat up an account at Community Bank Pendleton for his retainer and if you can I could use some additions to that account. The Account name is Black Ops Vet w/Cancer needs help C/O Community Bank Pendleton 157 S. Main, Pendleton, Oregon 97801.”


JAG Attorney needing a retainer?????



“Black Ops Vet w/Cancer”



Black Ops = Shadow Warrior

You’d never even know they were there. You can even say that they weren’t there.


Her husband never went to Korea.

The story she told on that 24 minute audio at the TAH posting is one of those “OMG” stories…

He lied. She fell for his lies.

The story us truly unbelievable, especially after one researches her late husband’s past along with the units on his FOIA.

Barbara said because he was trained as an MP at Fort Gordon, that he was an expert in Black Ops…

What???? Really? Seriously??


Hack Stone

Did the Army train Military Police at Fort Gordon GA? Hack was under the impression that Fort Gordon was where the Army sent their Comm Rats for schooling, as Hack attended a Joint Services class there in the mid 1990’s.

And thought that all Services Military Police students went to Fort Leonard Wood.


Was scratching our heads on that one, because when we were at Gordon, my Father was Signal Corps.

Still looking at her husband’s records via the TAH posting:

And what Barbara posted:


What Barbara wrote in 2015 pretending to be her husband:

“JOE AKA SKINNY DUNAGAN wrote on January 2, 2015”

Pendleton OR

“I was a member of the origional Ghost Walkers unit that was
formed in 1962 and would like to find others who were in the
unit. We wore no shoulder patches nor did we carry ID cards
or have our dog tags. I would also like to hear from anyone
who knows about the unit like who we belonged to etc.
Somebody is playing games with our
records and is refusing to
provide them to the VA. We gotta prove we were there.”


“We wore no shoulder patches nor did we carry ID cards
or have our dog tags.”

Yeah, that kind of bullshit happens all the time.

No ID cards and no dog tags. Sure thing.

Makes me want to barf whenever I hear that kind of garbage.

Hack Stone

Made it a real pain in the ass when it was his turn to run down to the Seven Day Store and pick up a 6 pack of brewskies and some smokes. Since he had no unit affiliation, the clerk would only sell him generic beer and cigarettes.

Yes, the struggle is real!

Thanks, supply daddy. I’m back! But I never really left. I can’t believe most folks here didn’t pick up the “Strange” vibes I was putting down. You did, however, and I thank you for that.


MP schools were at Gordon in the 60s as were us signal pukes. Don’t know when the cops left


The MP School was at Gordon from 1948 to 1974. Then it moved to McClellan till 1999, and then moved to its present location at Leonard Wood.


So yeah, the one real thing in this whole story is that there was an MP school at Ft. Gordon in the ’50s and ’60s. By the time I became a proud inhabitant of Brems Barracks in the ’80s, it was all Signal Corps.

Army-Air Force Guy

Brems was still standing in late ’88 when I went through 31C AIT but by that time all trainees were in Brick City on the other side of Barton Field.


Signal washouts were often reclassed MP.


Signal geniuses were sent to Ft Monmouth.

A Proud Infidel®™

“Fort Lost-in-the-Woods” became home to the MP Corps after Fort McLellan AL was deactivated, prior to that the “Mud-Pups” did basic & AIT there.


In 1959 MP school was at Ft Gordon.

In 1965 When young Poe went to CBR School there, the MP school was at Fort McClellan.

It then moved to Fort Gordon and was there for many years before it moved to Fort Leonard Wood.


Correction: MP School was still at Gordon when Poe was at McClellan.

It was at McClellan in the 70’s and 80’s when Poe called there as a civilian,

The only thing he was likely expert at was writing speeding tickets.


Mick, you NAILED it, SPOT ON, when you addressed the women that were duped…and in denial.

Her situation is so sad…yet, we wonder if she is trying to dupe the VA.

Thank You for sharing your personal experiences with guilluble women. Appreciate the feedback.

It did not help that the American Legion and others to include the media enabled her beliefs.

CIA and DoD? Well, let’s see if Ole Joey Boy helps her. After all, she is a Democrat from Oregon…


It’s similar to Daniel Wall. The various government agencies are trying to shut him up because he knows too much.

Who knew that the security secrets of our entire nation rest with an obese bed-ridden man in New Hampshire?

This is what Barbara’s husband MAY have participated in during the Berlin Crisis with the 32nd:


From a 32nd Division Soldier seeking info while serving during the Berlin crisis (NOT Barbara’s husband):

“Guerilla Training at Ft. Lewis during Berlin Crisis”

“While serving with 3-127TH Inf. at Ft. Lewis, Washington, during the Berlin Crisis, I was part of a group of 200 volunteers to learn Guerilla Tactics during summer of 1962. We spent one month in the forest of MT. Rainier, 2 weeks training and two weeks defending against 2,000 troops trying to flush us out. We were trained by Special Forces from Delta Company Detachment D-7, I believe. Upon a successful completion of the exercise, we were presented with certificates, and a unit crest acknowledging that we were Honorary Members of Detachment D-7. However, all of my mementos from this and my year at Ft. Lewis were destroyed. Can anyone remember this exercise and can you forward a copy of the certificate to me.”


Barbara posted this:

“Joseph W. Dunagan
Hq. Troop, 2D Recon. Squad, 105 Armor Cav.
32D Division
Berlin Crisis
(posted 3 Aug. 04; updated 4 Oct. 05)

We are looking for anyone who was called to active duty in 1961 and went to Ft. Lewis, Washington to train and was “Erronously recalled” and sent home in February of 1962, only to be called up a month or so later and sent to Korea. Joseph Wayne Dunagan was one of those and we think there may be more. Also looking for a roster of the unit from that time period.”


I doubt there ever was a SF ODA denominated “D-7” They all had different numbered ODA’s even back in the 60’s. This is because there were several groups, and you couldn’t have duplicate numbered oda’s. Also, back then, the company leverlunits were called B-detachments. There were no units designated as companies.


Was that true in the early days? The whole.history of how SF units were designated over time fascinates me. I don’t know when they started designating SF companies, but at least since the ’80s, the B-Team is the company HQ component of an SF company. So, for example, A Co / 3rd Bn / 20th SFG(A) would be composed of 6 ODAs and an ODB (the Co HQ). At one point, the ODB was 2070, and the ODAs were 2071-2076. (1st Bn companies were 2010-2030,. 2nd Bn were 2040-2060, and 3rd Bn were 2070-2090. Later A/3/20th would have been 2310.


Sometime in the latter half of the B-teams became companies and the C-teams became the three battalions of each Special Forces Group. When I joined SF and went to SFOC in 1970, that organization was in effect, but many of the old timers still referred to the companies as B-teams. The ODA’s all had three digit numbers, the first of which was an indication of which SF battalion the detachment was under. I commanded ODA’s 224 and 325, IIRC during my 2.5 years with the 10th Group.


…latter half of the 1960’s,….

Much like JR Majewski’s claim of combat deployment has an asterisk, the 200 comment milestone on this thread for Dickless Johnson will have an asterisk, as the post has brought up a lot of reminiscing of the glory days of posers, when posers knew how to pose, with faake autobiographies, sock puppets and the Tammy Wynette’s are standing by their men.

Speaking of standing by their men, is William Derek Church still in marital bliss with his lovely bride Kiaya?

Dick Johnson deserves to be made very uncomfortable with a (R)anger bat(t).


Going back to Barbara Wright Dunagan and Joseph “Skinny”Wayne Dunagan:

Barbara said that Joe told her that the leader of the “Ghostwalkers” was “Injun”.

Now she is looking for “Injun”.

This is what she posted on Fakebook (OMG). She even posted a picture (OMG):

“Good morning. I need some help desperately to find the name of the man the military called Injin. He was a Marine Major and he was the commanding officer of a Spec. Ops group known as Ghost Walkers. J also was told that he was the grandson of Geronimo and that he had a blood sister named Naomi Two Feathers. I need his name that we white eyes would have called him so that my attorney’s can see what the government put in his military records as to where he was in 62,63 Can you help me?”


UPDATE (submitted by an anonymous source):

As an update to your post on Richard Johnson. The veterans organization he was part of had removed him from his position prior to this publication. He was found to be quite a con man. The organization is currently looking into missing funds that appear to have been stolen. While everyone is innocent until proven guilty, it seems likely dick lied about being a vet, I order to steal money from vets.


We now return you to your regular programming.


He stole $$$ in 2010 and got caught. His felony charge of grand larceny was reduced to a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny. He pled guilty to the charge.


Maybe he used that stolen money to fund an orphanage in Bangladesh? Or to fund a trip as a missionary to Timbuktu? The benefits of the doubt are endless.


How did he end up in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area from Michigan?



Not sure. He bounced between VA (Hampton Roads area) and Michigan for about 20 years. Appears to have moved at least 7-8 times over the past 20 years and back and forth every few years.


Been on the run from the horrors of Macho Grande


No, he used that money to go on a trip to Manchu Pichu with Homer Simpson and Barney Gumble!

“New York Supreme Court Reinstates All Employees Fired For Being Unvaccinated, Orders Backpay. State Supreme Court Found That Being Vaccinated ‘Does Not’ Stop The Spread Of COVID-19”

9740 (1).jpeg

The New York Supreme Court got it right.

So sad and not right that folks got FIRED from their jobs because they were not vaccinated. Most of them were Firefighters and Police Officers, people we NEED.

Was disgusted that our tax dollars paid for others to sit in their basements to play video games instead of going out and getting a job AFTER the lockdown was slowly lifted. They got the vaccine, but figured they were making MORE money by staying home and not working.

Additionally, some thought they were just too good to even work at any Fast Food Establishment to earn wages.

Spoiled, pampered brats.

Hope They Reap What They Sow.


Washington State Ferry System did the same thing firing the unvaxed and many routes went from 2 boats (1 coming and1 going) to 1 boat and multiple hour wait for a spot on a boat. Sucks if you live on one of 13 inhabited islands without a bridge and work on the mainland.

Was traveling from Whidbey Island to Port Townsend (30 minute trip) and had a choice of a 3 hour wait or a 5+ hour drive via bridges.



Wow with the Washington State Ferry System..

So sad.


“So sad and not right that folks got FIRED from their jobs because they were not vaccinated.”
