Michael Killam; phony POW

| December 21, 2015

Michael Killiam

A couple of our ninjas were interested in this fellow, Michael Duane Killam, apparently, because I’ve been getting info on him from a couple of folks since last week. He came to everyone’s attention when he was in the local Dallas/Fort Worth news last month around Veterans’ Day and he was recognized by Congressman Marc Veasey for his service in Vietnam.

Killam claims (2)

Michael Duane Killam Phony Vietnam POW Claims to have been with the 75th Rangers, 173rd Airborne and POW

He claimed that he was a POW (the period of capture changes from time to time from three days to four months, depending on how Killam feels) and that he was wounded, that he had two Purple Hearts, that he was in the 75th Infantry. From Kera News;

During the first 90 days of his tour in Vietnam, Michael Killam says he felt invincible.

“I had weapons,” he said. “I had power over life and death. I could make people live or I could let them die. I became God-like.”

Killam was only 19 at the time. During his tour, he was captured for three days, hung upside down, and tortured for hours. Eventually, he escaped and returned to duty.

Well, he was in Vietnam;

Killam Vietnam 1

Killam Vietnam 2

Killam Vietnam 3

He was a helicopter crewman, but with the 7th Battalion 15th Artillery, not the 75th Infantry. It looks like he was a mechanic on an OH-58 OH-6 Cayuse which would have been used for artillery observation and spotting, not in assault aircraft as he claims;

Killam claims

DPAA says that he wasn’t a POW either;

image003

He did have two years of honorable service, though, including a year in Vietnam from August 1969 – September 1970;

Michael Duane Killam Vietnam POW Phony 2 001

Michael Duane Killam Vietnam POW Phony 3 001

He left the service as a Private E-2, though, so I think he probably wasn’t the best soldier, but then how many of us were?

A very recent post in which Killam is referred to as a Purple Heart recipient and a POW. Where did Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas get this information? Where did Senator Davis get her information? Are they all just making it up?

3/17 Air Cav

Mr. Bill……thru the link you provided, Killam recieved a new bathroom, interior door, fence repair, and a new floor. If he is indeed, a embellisher, which I think he is, he’s going to have some splainen to do! I wonder if he got these freebies because of the Purple Heart/POW claims?

OWB

That’s the sad part. He likely earned those things simply because of serving where he did, when he did. Too bad he’s tainted his own honor with the lies.

3/17 Air Cav

I just finished going thru the OH-6 losses in Vietnam 1969-70 NO losses for 7-15 Arty. Further, only one loss for any arty unit during that period

Claw

Well, that was certainly an invigorating exchange once the crickets decided to end their silence and start chirping.

Bottom line, still no visible proof of being a POW or being awarded Purple Hearts.

Discharged as a Private E-2 with a General Discharge after three years.

Form your own opinions. My opinion has been solidified.

Jarhead

WJG…for starters you don’t know shit about Marines. We do not get upset when being referred to as jar heads. As a matter of fact we kind of enjoy it as it identifies us as with whom we served. The real joke is on those who think they are insulting us by calling us jar heads. Hell, we take pride in it, if you want to know the truth. For that matter, I don’t believe… Read more »

Hey Claw and 3/17….if you are still up. Got any more ideas or questions which Gainy can answer? That’s the approach he can satisfy to make us change our minds. To this very day I am still not certain this is the real deal Gainey. And for most every post he writes, each one has little matters that just add to the doubt. Something is just waaaaay off here.

Mr. Gainey (if that who you really are): On 6 January, around 1742 hours, you stated to GDContractor that Killam told you (after the interview you did with him) that he was an 11B. Now why would he tell you that after telling you he was a Door Gunner? And it turns out he was neither? Well? And your former Commander who should have received the PH, but didn’t? Really? What conflict was that person… Read more »

AskaMarine

A correction to my statement above. Mr. Gainey (if that is who you are), you did not come on Active Duty until June 1975. Therefore, you are NOT considered a Vietnam ERA Vet. Yes, you were in the DEP in 1974, BUT, and I will repeat again, YOU ARE NOT A VIETNAM ERA VET. So please don’t put yourself in the same category as Claw and 3/17 Air Cav.Over and out.

Marine_7002

William Gainey: let’s cut through all the bullshit. Killam claims he was a POW. DOD says he wasn’t.

How the fuck do you explain and defend that? Please, do get down to brass tacks and tell us, since you obviously are on a first-name basis with this turd.

He’s lying about being a POW. Chances are he’s lying about the PH also, and a lot more.

GDContractor

I posted this in another location, but figured I would cu/paste it here so the SGM might see it. Questions for the SGM: If he was flying UH58, why is he pictured only with the OH-6? Did you substantiate grounds for one PHM or two? Killam attained the rank of E5 and he didn’t know what unit he served with? Really? What was the time interval between his 3 day absence and loss of 3… Read more »

Suggestion to Gainey – get permission from Killam to release his records (with redacted personal info) to Jonn for review and posting on TAH. If you personally spent five hours reviewing them to verify his career, then to clear this up, get him to OK their release and have them posted here. If the info checks out, Jonn will do his part as owner of the blog, and many of us (including me) will apologize.… Read more »

WJG:

Since you stated you have connections, here is the Website for DPAA:

Recommend you contact them and ask them about Killam. They have an Army Senior Enlisted as part of their Chain of Command.

JarHead, Animal, AskAMarine, Marine7002 you guys are awesome, but I am not sure you are getting all the love you deserve.

Here’s a dumb ‘ol Marine showing up George Strait.
It can happen.

Jarhead

GDC…Thanks so much friend. The real problem was we (at least myself) were so much in need and approval from Gainey, since he appears to have the knack of hoovering over HIS veterans. Manlove like that can really make a dude feel special and wanted.

GDC, I learn something every day. Didn’t know that Jamey Johnson is a Marine.

Thanks, GDC…as with the other Marine, learned something new. Did not realize the Singer was a “Brother” as well (tongue in cheek). You should have been a Marine/Jarhead… 😉

MrBill

A few miscellaneous thoughts on Mr. Killam. It looks like he’s done a lot of good work for veterans, including working with a veterans’ court in Tarrant County. He deserves to be commended for that. He served, in Vietnam, when many others weren’t willing to. Even if his service had a couple of blemishes, he still should be proud of having served. So why isn’t that enough? If he’s making the claim that he should… Read more »

AskaMarine

Now I really believe that Gainey is not who he said he is: On 14 January 2016 at 2324 Hours, he commented ” Michael has a VA appointment next Wednesday where I will get verification from a doctor at which time I will use the DD Form 215 to update his DD Form 214.” ALL: What is wrong with that statement?

OWB

Oh, let’s see: The word Michel, the number 214, and every key stroke between those characters in the quotation?

MrBill

Yeah, there are a few intermediate steps between “getting a note from the doctor” and “generating DD Form 215”.

Claw

It’s called the Sockpuppet magic wand effect.

And if a frog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass every time he hopped.

Hondo

FWIW: the location of origin for Gainey’s comments appears consistent with him being who he says he is. I believe that Killam lives a substantial distance from the location where Gainey’s comments originate.

That does argue against Killam acting as a sock puppet. But it’s not definitive proof, and it doesn’t rule out the possibility of someone other than Killam using Gainey’s name without his permission.

Jarhead

Hondo…any chance of getting in personal contact with the REAL Gainey? Every day I have less and less reason to believe these posts by the mysterious Gainey are for real. If the REAL Gainey knew someone else was promoting this on behalf of Killam, he’d surely want to come on this site and address the issue. If nothing else a personal call to Jonn and references to verify the call was from the REAL Gainey.… Read more »

OWB

There is also the possibility that the real Gainey is the commenter calling himself Gainey but that he is in the process of discovering the truth is as presented in the OP. At this point he would legitimately by cautious of making himself look any more foolish until he has the complete story.

Or not. Only time will tell.

TheCloser

Is the doctor examining a scar, removing a bullet, or what? What definitive proof of the origin and circumstances of either be determined 45+ years later by a VA doctor?
There I go stating the obvious again …sorry

Claw

I wish to issue an apology to the TAH Cadre. It was not my intent to change the focus of this thread on Michael Killam from his purported claims of being a POW/Purple Heart recipient into was he really a Door Gunner on a helicopter. The Door Gunner claims are a penny ante back row sideshow compared to the other claims. I will refocus my attention to the real subject. I strayed outside my lane… Read more »

Jarhead

Claw….You don’t owe ANYBODY an apology. Your opinion on that specific part of the story was just one of the many discrepancies that became so clear from the beginning and stood out more as time progressed. For that matter, you deserve a pat on the back for not only NOT swallowing the hook, but for hanging in there with skepticism in the face of being ridiculed had we all been so wrong. Don’t forget that… Read more »

Claw

Thanks Jarhead. I appreciate your support. Here’s the bottom line: Until we can view Killam’s DA Form 3513 (Individual Flight Records Folder United States Army) which contain the appropriate DA Forms 759(Part I) and 759-1(Part II), otherwise known as a “Trip Book”, I will remain very skeptical as to whether he was ever awarded a Crewmember Flight Status. My Trip Book is available for public viewing at any time. It’s in a briefcase in my… Read more »

Will make one more comment on Gainey and then refocus on Killam and his claims of being a POW and a PH recipient (thank you, Claw, for making me see the light).

Couple of small date errors in the quoted material above. Moreover, it also appears there are actually two distinct – and different – “Vietnam Era” definitions. The Vietnam Era GI Bill required active duty service after 31 January 1955 but before 1 January 1977. It also required a minimum of 180 days active duty service. It ended in 1989; however, personnel with remaining eligibility were generally automatically converted to the Montgomery GI Bill. The Vietnam… Read more »

OWB

Yeah, it’s confusing, and made even worse for those of us who were in the Guard during that time. My records reflect that I earned the NDSM but did NOT earn GI benefits. It was also not fashionable in those days for Guardsmen to have any active duty that would qualify them for benefits. Have long since forgotten all the codes used then for characterization of our service (like ADT to signify “active duty for… Read more »

Gainey’s posts have the quality in spelling and content of a Nigerian email scammer. They just don’t seem like the work of an experienced professional.

On the other hand, we’re still talking about him and minus Sgt Maj Gainey we probably… Read more »

I’m leaning more and more towards the indicators that the person posting as Gainey is not Gainey because: 1.

He actually thought I was linking PTS to wearing BCG’s.(Birth Control Glasses) 3. The Gainey poster actually made a legitimate reply to a Faker 6 comment. 4. Calling… Read more »

I think a week is reasonable. Unless I misunderstood it, I think I read that Sgt Maj Gainey knew Killam when he first came home from VN. If that is the case Killam has been carrying this lie on for a LONG time.

Claw

I think that Gainey was talking about his real sibling brother returning from Vietnam in 1972, not as his “brother veteran” Killam returning.

At least that’s the way I understood that comment.

I see. Thanks.

By the looks of Killam, I imagine he is out committing a crime.

Loser.

Prostitution would be my guess.

3/17 Air Cav

I’ve been giving killam’s reduction in rank and General discharge some thought. I’m thinking there was some substance abuse going on at that time. Booze, dope? As I said before, from my experience, you don’t get a general discharge for a Article 15. I did see a couple of guys get busted during that time for those types of infractions.

Green Thumb

Maybe it was dudes in the woodline?

Just saying.

Claw

3/17, by my age calculations on Killam, he turned 21 years old while spending the remainder of his active duty time at Fort Bragg/Fayettenam. Being able to drink legally can be a good thing or a bad thing. It all depends on which fork in the road you take. Receiving a three grade demotion and a General Discharge for missing a few formations? Just doesn’t sound kosher to me. I’m thinking there were a lot… Read more »

Don’t forget, SGM Gainey would have us believe that Killam is dumber than a bag of hammers. You see, he thought he was airborne (and presumably SF/Ranger) because they were all together on one base.

Given this logic, SGM Gainey should be able to call himself one of the Joint Chiefs and we should… Read more »

GDC, Yeah, for this guy Killam to have spent his time in Vietnam in a “dream” (as described by Gainey), he sure had a moment of clarity two years ago. If you go back over to the older comments and look at the links provided by AnotherPat(21 Dec at 4:53PM), Killam posted pictures into the Milvetpeer picture album (on 1/13/2014) that either specifically or implied that he was a member of three other outfits while… Read more »

Actually, there was an Army thing going on at the time, GDC, and it had to do with assignments and attachments. I’ve looked at Killam’s story from the standpoint of time and geography because I was in the same area roughly a year later. What he was doing probably went like this: Killam went in country in August of 1969, and was sent to work on observation helicopters for the 7/15th Field Artillery. At that… Read more »

Based on DPAA’s comprehensive roster of Vietnam POWs and the FOIA reply from NPRC, at a minimum the POW, 2x PH, and several unit of assignment claims appear to be pure male bovine organic fertilizer.

Well, my first thought when I read the helping hands for vets story was just how a county vets service officer came to be selected for a truckload of home repairs. Just the luck of the draw or some sort of using the position to influence the selection? Brings to mind one of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ rules about there is no such thing as a coincidence.

No, coincidences do exist. But when there’s a financial aspect in play and easy money to be made or free stuff to be had, sometimes coincidences . . . aren’t.

Of course it could always be the old “one name on a slip of paper in the helmet liner” Shifty Powers gambit.

Just seems a little odd to me, but YMMV.

Jarhead

If y’all would just quit posting on this story I would be able to leave it alone and eventually put it out of my mind. My (hopefully) final thought on the matter is this: SGM Gainey ( or the person claiming to be him) is the Indiana Jones of combat history and medals.

“Gainey” claims he’ll get the current SEAC to look into this. The current SEAC will (1) roll his eyes and (2) get a staffer to request a FOIA, just like what’s been done, unless there is some Double Secret Probation records repository only accessible to SEACs. I’m beginning to doubt even Joe Gainey is this clueless.

Killam is probably at your local fast food joint working the drive thru. Can I have some extra jellies with my biscuit? That’s a pretty big step considering the fact he looks all felonious and shit. I imagine the hair net and eye fucking customers scares people. And I have to give Burger King and other fast food joints credit for attempting to give scum such as himself a job and another opportunity. Delta Force… Read more »

Too soon to start keeping vigil again?

Today is the day that Killam is supposely going to a VA Doctor.For what,I don’t know.

IDC SARC

getting his prostate milked

HMCS(FMF) ret.

Anal dilation therapy session?

By looking at his sorry ass, I would say jail.

It’s 1530 hrs CST and just came back inside after shoveling out my driveway/sidewalk again.

I am now patiently awaiting the report on the 45 year old gunshot wound to Killam’s leg that was promised to us by the VA Doctor who nametag lists him as *Doctor Carnac the Magnificent.*

In the interim, let’s all listen to a resounding rendition of *Cricket Serenade.*

AskaMarine

Holy Smokes with all your snow, Claw! 🙂 Yep, time for the beautiful music from the All Mighty Powder-Puff Team.

That documents review sure is taking a long time.

I was just thinking the same thing. I don’t care who you are, it doesn’t take that long to figure out if someone was a POW in Viet Nam. MAYBE the civil war, but not Viet Nam.

HMCS(FMF) ret.

I thinks someone is experiencing what is known in sales and marketing as “buyer’s remorse” for hitching their wagon to a SV phony…

On 17 January 2016 (almost a week ago), I wrote to WJG: “…recommend you contact the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) and ask them if they have a Michael Duane Killam listed as a Vietnam POW: http://www.dpaa.mil/Home.aspx You can contact them on Tuesday. They have an Army Senior Enlisted as part of their Chain of Command.” Additionally, WJG volunteered to us information that Killam was supposedly going to a VA Doctor this past Wednesday. Perhaps… Read more »

I don’t understand why people are willing to go to such lengths to protect flagrant offenders. At the same time I’m sitting on a phony that I’ve done nothing about because of his kids. I’ve reconciled it by drawing a line in the sand. He used his made up background to get himself put on high risk warrant raids. He’s not a cop anymore, but if I hear he is doing it again I won’t… Read more »

Day 8 of silence from Gainey.

Claw

Actually it’s the start of Day 10 of silence.

Gainey’s last comment was made about 0032 on the morning of 15 January.

I hope he gets back to us soon. The suspense is Killam me.

Marine_7002

gggrrrrrrooooooaaaaaaannnnnnnn.

C’mon, Claw, it’s too early on a Sunday morning for that. 😀

Hack Stone

It’s funny, because it’s true.

Hondo

I guessing that means you forgot his 17 Jan commentary above, AKA “SOCK PUPPET REPORT”?

http://valorguardians.com/blog/?p=63422&cpage=2#comment-2780361

Maybe have another cup of coffee, amigo. It’s still early out west. (smile)

Claw

Yep, you’re right. Mea Culpa.

Off to the pot I go. (both ways)

Scooby made me do it.

Claw

Update:

Scooby just lined me out on the evils of drinking that namby-pamby 50-50 decaf stuff that the wife prefers.

He suggests I get a second Mr. Coffee and start making the retro version of Monday morning (after sitting cold in the pot all weekend) reheated/reperked motor pool coffee that we all know and love.

I think I’ll take him up on that suggestion.

Claw

I just wish SGM Gainey would get over being all butt hurt about not having a clue when it comes to referencing BCG’s.

Smaj

I guess someone’s priorities have changed.

HMCS(FMF) ret.

Yup… and doesn’t want to admit that he made a mistake.

Hack Stone

Maybe he can’t handle the truth!

AskaMarine

Well, WJG sure was high and mighty coming here, defending Killam, coming up with all these excuses. So, yep, just as I previously posted, WJG can’t handle the truth. Met quite a few folks such as him. When they think they are right, they will go in the defense/attack mode. When they are wrong, they are either quiet or act as the fox in the Aesop Tale of Sour Grapes. Next thing you know, we… Read more »

Approaching the end of day 10 of . . . silence.

*Hello Darkness my old friend* *I’ve come to talk with you again* Seems I remember a song by S&G that started out like that. Anyway, up before the crack of dawn. I have a cup of reheated motor pool joe (sweetened by a generous spoonful of GAA) at the ready. Hell, the cup I’m drinking it from is a genuine Kenro brown mess hall cup. Where’s the SOS, Cookie? I figured for sure we would… Read more »

Crickets….yawwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnn.

All those documents he’s reading must be in super-fine print to take this long to read.

Green Thumb

My best guess is that his sorry ass is holed up in some backwoods redneck bar drinking heavily to feel better about himself.

Green Thumb

And the more I think about it, looking at the pictures at the top of the page, I do not think he is working on those aircraft.

He looks like he is/got caught stealing, especially in the bottom one.

I wonder if that (stealing)has something to do with his less-than-fabulous discharge?

Claw

Speaking of those pictures, the very first one (in color) where he is leaning against it, that is an OH-13 helicopter.

Yep, the very same helicopter made famous in M*A*S*H* 4077th episodes for doing medivac duties.

So I’m sure he was a doorgunner running Combat Assault missions in one of those./ Bigtime Sarc

Hondo

“Stealing”? Please. I believe that was called “midnight requisitioning”. And I have no idea if that’s what’s going on in those photos above. (smile) FWIW: if the guy’s high rank was E5 and he left the service as an E2, he either had more than one Article 15/NJP (with at least the first being field grade) or he was court-martialed. Takes a minimum of 2 Article 15/NJPs to bust a soldier from E5 to E2… Read more »

“Casual Acquisition” was another term used. As for E5 to E2, it took at least a Field Grade Article 15 to reduce an E5 to E4 and another FG Article 15 could knock an E4 to E1 if they screwed the pooch hard enough back when I was AD. Either way, being an E5 and exiting as an E2 says “Dickstepper Extraordinaire” or “Dirtbag el Grande” like a casino sign on the Las Vegas strip!

The silence is deafening here…
C`mon SGM. We all know you`re following along. Eh? I can`t hear you.

Yep. Approaching the end of day 11 of . . . crickets.

Hondo – off topic, but in my unending quest to point out the hypocrisy of prosecution (and lack thereof), witness the charges in Houston regarding the planned parenthood videos. Not trying to turn this into an abortion talk, but I wish they would go after the asshat mil-liars with equal fervor. And yeah, I remember Grandpa saying wish in one hand and …

Those who have nothing to hide, hide nothing.

If one notices, the first three series that addresses Killam are “private”.

The other series are not.

HMCS(FMF) ret.

A bad case of Damage Control… the truth is out and they don’t have any idea of how to handle it so “hide” the vids.

I’m sure his co-workers are not real happy with him right now.

Claw

Yep, Killam. Another Shake&Bake Spec5 gone bad.

It’s most unfortunate that Killam hasn’t made an appearance here. I’m having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around his claim of having two of his eight high school classmates being KIA in Vietnam.

Just another of the building blocks in his pyramid of lies.
