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?

Cricket Commandos still serenading, I see..

Hondo and OWB have some theories as to why the 1st SEAC of the JCS is quiet. Or it is because Claw banished him out the gates of TAH because both of being “Deserters”. Still think the only way to get their attention and possibly a confession/apology is to have them both exposed via news media, similiar to Les Black and Steve Valckye. You saw what happened to Black. With Vackye, his wife made a… Read more »

Five weeks and three days, Gainey. That’s certainly enough time for a FOIA – or to get someone’s records from NPRC with their cooperation (e.g., with a signed SF180 or letter of authorization).

Well?

AskaMarine

Hondo: I really believe that both of them are reading this and that if they ignore it, we may give up and not address it anymore. You are right that it should not take Gainey this long to get Killam’s records cinsidering you were able to obtain them in the same time period of 5 weeks and 3 days. Also noticed there was no comment about Gainey getting the 3rd SEAC involved or Killam’s so… Read more »

HONDO……..I don’t think Gainey has the BALLS to show up here! I think originally he thought he could come in here and throw his weight around and have us all scurrying for the exits. Then in his mind, once everything died down, Killiam could continue on with his bullshitstories. Come on, Gainey, prove me wrong! Show some stones! Show up and tell us all officially, that we are right. Killiam is nothing but a lying… Read more »

I’m SO tempted to post a not so flattering picture (article with picture) of a family member of Gainey’s here, but don’t want to stoop to that level and embarrass that family member because of Gainey’s poor choices of wearing a 3rd NDSM as well as supporting Killam and staying silent. And who knows: Killam might have pretended to be Gainey all along to protect his own ass. BUT, if it was Gainey that was… Read more »

Ok. You guys went an ran Gainey as a deserter. Did anyone think about what they were going to do with him when he gets picked up at a strip bar for public intoxication and brought back?

Killam might be in jail.

That could be the reason he has not brought the “proof” forth.

Just look at him. It would not be a far stretch….

AskaMarine

Oh, we wish…we wish…Now, where do you think the 1ST SEAC of the JCS disappeared? 😉

Probably down to All-Points Logistics.

LIKE! That us why you were nominated to be the Secretary of Agriculture…to clean up all those S!*theads populating our country with their embellishment, cowardness, lies, deceits and falsehood. As well as their Enablers. Which Monkress has as well. We REALLY nees to do a Tournimant on those Enablers.

Yeah, I just don’t know what we have to do to flush this turd, oops, bird, from cover. Maybe we’ll have to send in the dogs. I have an old friend that 30 years ago was the four deuce platoon daddy up on Carson with me. He now lives in the Killeen/Ft. Hood area and if there was one thing he hated it was pissy assed, cowardly, prima donna E-9’s. Maybe I’ll give him a… Read more »

I think it’s safe to say he isn’t coming back. That’s too bad. At this point I have more respect for Lars trying to get along with everyone. Lars has been beat up by far worse than Gainey, but he keeps coming back to face the fire. Gainey popped smoke and ran.

Put it under “Best Supporter of a Phony” category.

I’m sure Cayton and Gainey know each other. They both live in the same area down there by Fort Hood and both are former III Corps CSM’s. You know all those E-9s hang out together. I’m thinking there is more to Gainey’s embellishment than just the claim of three NDSMs. I have a firm belief that no matter what his bio says from the Fort Benning site and his claims on Wikipedia, he is not… Read more »

I think Gainey made himself a co-conspirator here when he used his name and the influence he believed that would give him to influence the opinion of the public concerning Killam. I don’t think he would’ve come back to this board and announced that Killam was indeed guilty of the allegations even if he had been well received. I think the only way we would’ve heard from him again was if he could proclaim Killam’s… Read more »

I know I am beating a dead horse, but still think the only way for PV2 Gainey as well as Ed Schwarz to come back on this blog and admit their mistake/ignorance is to have them nominated in the Category “Best Supporter of a Phony” of the SV Tournament. Gainey has adviced others in his circle to ignore us. It could also be publitized on Military Phonies and other Forums such as the Military.com Forums.… Read more »

Killam + Gainey = Squishy, Putrid, Incarcerated Turd.

Claw

A small bit of good news are in order. It seems that exposure here on TAH does have some effect on LSOS’s such as *Killer* Killam and his sockpuppet defender PV9 Gainey. The latest check of the *whenvetsgather* website reveals that both Killam’s and Gainey’s pictures and bios as Board of Director members have been removed/deleted. So I guess that we can’t beat up on Gainey any longer about the claim of him receiving two… Read more »

Guilt. Gainey and Killam are both are ridden with shame and guilt. Or they are trying to salvage their reputation and jobs. The Gainey Cup is coming up. I’m sure Soldiers that will be competing may Google SGM (RET) William Joseph Gainey, the First SEAC of the JCS and see this Blog. Those seeking counseling in Tarrant County, Texas may be referred to Michael Killam and may Google his name as well. Well, surprise, surprise.… Read more »

Birds of a Feather Flock Together…

It is obvious by their lies, arrogance and silence that they will be voting for HRC.

So alarming that Killam still has his job counseling Veterans as well as those upcoming Soldiers that will be competing in the Gainey Cup.

Spring is coming. Hopefully, the Tournament will start soon with a Sock Puppet/Enabler Category.

Hondo

Two months and two days, Gainey. Well? Any word from your “sources”? Did Killam sign a SF180 (or equivalent document) granting you access to his records – or did you file your own FOIA request on him to find out “the truth”? A FOIA request only rarely takes 2+ months to get an answer. Since we’ve heard nothing, I’m guessing the answer to my questions above is “no” – or you did, and got an… Read more »

Maybe a double whammy will shake the bushes and get the PV9’s attention.

I just checked the for updates on this myself and couldn’t think of anything witty.

There has to be some recourse in this. It just ain’t right that veterans needing help are still being victimised by him.

Breaking News Update: 63 days (9 weeks) since the last Sockpuppet Report. What’s the hold up there, PV9? Where’s the exposure of Killam as a Lying Sack of Shit that was promised to us? So much for upholding the portion of the NCO’s Creed that says “I will not compromise my integrity, nor my moral courage.” But, then again, I never knew an NCO that was declared an AWOL/Deserter.

Let me see if I can rustle the bushes a little bit and get a reaction out of either Killam or PV9 Gainey. Here’s a small reading assignment for the LSOS and his enabler. Go to the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association (VHPA) website and using the menu, read the incident reports pertaining to the following individuals: WO1 David Meyer (7 May 1971) WO1 Jay Aston (18 July 1971) UH-1H Helicopter Serial No. 66-17051 (17 March… Read more »

That comment really stuck out in my mind also. That’s why I feel he is victimizing the guys coming in to get help. I know the whole SV phenomena is feeding something dysfunctional in their character (unless they’re doing it for some type of financial gain and then they’re just crooks), but Killam takes it to a whole different level by putting himself in a position to influence vulnerable veterans.

Claw

What I just don’t understand is, with each passing day, how deep in the sand the leadership at MHMRTarrant has their collective heads stuck by continuing to allow a General Discharge Private to give legal advice/be a program manager to veterans seeking help. That in itself is a real travesty in all this. I know that Gainey claimed he had encouraged Killam’s employers not to act on the postings here on TAH, but Geez, does… Read more »
