Earl Littman the secret combat naked warrior

| January 27, 2015

Earl Littman

Nearly two years ago, Earl Littman came on our radar thanks to Don Shipley. He claims that he was a “secret combat naked warrior” and a Navy SEAL. Littman also claims that his records are still classified 69 years after his discharge. He also runs a scheme, claiming to benefit veterans, even though there’s no legitimate business listed anywhere, except at his website.

Yesterday, Don Shipley posted another video which included Littman and the documentation that we got from the National Personnel Records Center. Not so secret after all. You know, his secret record that is so secret that he can only write a book about it. Well, here are his secret records;

Earl Littman Enlistment

Earl Littman Enlistment2

He enlisted on January 26, 1945, the surrender of Japan was signed on September 2, 1945. Probably because the secret naked combat warriors were so devastatingly successful and because Earl was a naked warrior killing machine.

Earl Littman Discharge authorization

Earl was discharged August 19, 1946 after 20 months of service, four months before his enlistment ended, according to his enlistment papers.

Earl Littman Notice of Separation

According to those records, Littman never left the country, with or without his clothes on. So, just stop Earl. Stop.

Talk about embellishing one’s skinny dipping experiences in the US. 🙄


According to those records, Littman never left the country . . .

Hell, he barely ever left the NE – much less served overseas.

If I’m reading his records above correctly, the only time he spent outside of NY and RI was 7 weeks at Hospital Corpsman School in San Diego, plus travel between duty stations.

What a dipstick.


California – it’s like a whole ‘nuther county.


I believe the correct term is DIPSHIT


What’s the matter, Earl? Is it ED again?

A couple of popsicle sticks and some masking tape will help that.

Combat Historian

The U.S. began declassifying its Manhattan Project records in the 1960s, and the British began declassifying its ULTRA/ENIGMA records in the 1970s; and the U.S. Navy has continued to keep Earl Littman’s personnal files classified for 69 years ??? Was Earl in charge of a team of naked combat swimmers that fought off a secret alien invasion of Earth while the rest of the world was fighting World War II ???


Actually he got out of training after WWII was officially over.


Not so sure about that, Flag.

Here’s what I get: He entered active duty on 20 Feb 1945. His training lasted a total of 17 weeks. Even if you add 3 weeks to that (1 for travel to San Diego, 2 weeks “deadhead”/awaiting orders or trans), that’s still only up to around 10 July.

We didn’t drop the nuke at Hiroshima until 6 Aug 1945.

That said, it appears he never deployed outside of CONUS – so his claims of wartime combat are naught but pure BS.


I am. Senior Chief Shipley already did his FRAGO on him.



Um, Flag – check that vid at the 5:05 mark. The document there clearly shows he finished training prior to 20 July 1945. We know that because it indicates he reported to his first permanent duty station – USNH Newport, RI – on 20 July.

That’s prior to the end of World War II. The next date on that form – 29 August 1945 – is the date he reported to his next duty station at NAS Quonset Island, RI.

Looks to me like he had been at his first duty station (USNH Newport, RI) about 3 1/2 weeks when the shooting stopped on 14 August 1945, and got sent elsewhere shortly afterwards.

On another side note, I see that Earl’s records were signed off by a person holding the rank of Commodore.

I never did understand why the Navy stopped using the rank of Commodore for one star. (I do know that some other nations, such as the UK, don’t consider that to be a flag officer grade – hell, they don’t think Brigadier General is a GO grade either!) It sounds a lot better than “Rear Admiral, Lower Half.”

Perry Gaskill

According to Patrick O’Brian, the late novelist who based a lot of his work on Royal Navy records during the Napoleonic Wars, the title of Commodore was used as a job description, and not as a rank or pay grade. Apparently one of those strange squid things like when a Captain can be an O-6 or the guy in charge of a patrol boat who happens to be a Lieutenant.

In normal usage, Commodore simply meant the commander of a group of warships sent to do something, pretty much regardless of the size of the ships, or the size of the group.


I loved the Patrick O’Brian Aubrey-Maturin books. It’s been about 15 years…. time to plow through them again!

Commissioner Wretched

In the Royal Navy Commodore is still a rank, not just a job title, and it corresponds to our one-star admiral. But an RN Commodore doesn’t enjoy flag status, just as a British Army Brigadier is not considered a general officer, rather a kind of senior colonel.

In the US, the one-star rank was called “Commodore” until after WWII. It was “abolished” after the war, with Navy captains who were promoted bumped directly to two-star rear admiral grade. (Needless to say, this tended to piss off Army, Marine, and Air Force colonels who had to walk around with one star after they got promoted.) In the ’80s the Navy brought back the one-star rank but called it Commodore Admiral … then about a year later it became “rear admiral lower half.”

I just don’t understand what’s wrong with the word Commodore to denote the one-star rank.


In true Sailor fashion, the word Commodore got convoluted into the word “Commode Door”

Hack Stone

Way back in the day, hack was listening to a Casey Kasem Emerivan Top 40 broadcast, and Casey always had to give you a story with the song. So, he has a Lionel Richie song cued up, and he said that when they needed a name for the band, Lionel and his friends randomly opened the dictionary and someone’s finger landed on Commodore. If that finger strayed a little bit up the page, they would have been known as The Commodes.


All right. Time to get funky. Here’s a little something for you “Boogie Nights” fans!



Seems I have read that Commodore is considered a war-time rank only? If so, it would make sense for the time frame.


For some reason I can’t stop thinking of this:


That’s a classic jam. A moving tribute to two of the greatest R&B talents ever – Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.


When a nearly 90-year old guy talks shit like this, I usually chalk it up to dementia.

But where money becomes involved, shitbaggery is sure to follow.

Fuck. This. Guy.


What a slob…
Fuck him with Psul’s dick…
I just hope that God has a place in purgatory for these pukes to spend a couple thousand years for their lies.


I’m surprised that some of our regular liars haven’t started calling themselves “secret combat naked warriors” (aka the rat brain posse).

Green Thumb

Just an another conman.

Will someone pass the snake oil, please?


Earl Littman is a piece of old dog shit! He;s a con man and I’ll bet 5 to 1 he;s been one since before he enlisted in ’45. An ass hole, lying, get rich quick scam man and I’ll bet the mystery barracks thief back then, to boot. I cut him no slack for his age. He’s playing on his age, being part of the “greatest generation”, most of whom are turning in their graves, wanting a piece of his ass. He does my father a great disservice. Were my father alive, he would be 95 this year. he would still take a crack at Littman.

Another thought, Littman, is the litigious type. I can just tell it about him. I’ll bet good money again, he’ll be contacted by our own, “Fantastic Four Of Fuck Ups” to see if he wants to join them in some defamation case somewhere. Then it will be, “The naked, secret WWII Commando…cometh”. I can’t wait.

“Fantastic Four Of Fuck Ups”

I refer to them affectionately as “The Legion of Taint” or in a more professional setting, “The Gentlemen of the Backdoor”.


How about “Task Force Rat Brain”?




So which one of the is The Thing?

Green Thumb

I would say Visconi.

I mean, look at the gnarled picture of him.

If you attached a light hanging down over his face he would look like one of those prehistoric fish that fishermen drag up from the 5000+ feet depths every now and then. I mean, look at that face and those chompers. Yikes!!!

Visconti brings a very literal meaning to the word “bottom feeder”.

A Proud Infidel®™

You mean “bottom feeder” like a Carpsucker or a BLOBFISH? 😀

I wonder how soon that critter will become part of The Dutch Rudder Gang?

Green Thumb

“Bottom Feeder” in as “a creature that must look up to feed”.

It is very dark down there (without his light) and one must look up to see scraps that make there way to the bottom.

Green Thumb

But if his light does not work, maybe he can get Jerry Vroombout to install it.


Can someone explain to a non-Navy guy what “failed eddy test” refers to?


Here you go…look like a test for electronics training programs



If anyone would like to read a truly amazing short bio, you might want to check out that of the Eddy Test’s namesake – CAPT William C. Eddy, USN (Ret).



‘Failed eddy test’ means what Mrs. Senior Chief Diana was trying to stop giggling about in the PSOTW video.



You had to put that thought into words

Goodbye cruel world (Archie Bunker style)


Green Thumb

I am not, I assure you.

Hack Stone

Secret combat naked warrior is going to be my next password at work.



Doesn’t surprise me a bit that this turd’s so-called “charity” doesn’t even show up on Charity Navigator.

Scum-sucking fraud.


This old gasbag has an elevated ‘eeeewwww’ factor. It was probably worse 50 years ago. He’s got that sleazy creepazoidal stare that should set off the ‘eeeeewwww’ alarm.

Green Thumb

I agree.

He also looks gay.

Just an observation.

This dude appears to be a professional conman.
