Robert Glaub – Phony Silver Star and Purple Heart

| October 28, 2019

The folks at Military Phony send us their work on this Robert Allen Glaub fella.  Robert is 56 years old as of Oct 2019 and lives in Torrington, Wyoming.  He often goes by “Rob” as well as his nickname “Goosinator.”  Sometimes he lists his last name as “Glaub-Leonello.”

Glaub posted photos of himself in his U.S. Army finest, which includes the rank of SSG (E-6), hashmark on his sleeves indicating 15 years of service, a U.S. Army Parachutist Badge, and medals that include the Silver Star, the Purple Heart and a Bronze Star.  There may be a Distinguished Flying Cross but it was difficult to tell from the photo.

Here is the best guess at the medals summary with the enlarged photo of his chest candy for comparison.

Because he only wears the jacket, some thought was given to him perhaps doing some spring cleaning and came across his father’s jacket and tried it on, but the photo is clearly labeled as “U.S. ARMY – I SERVED SOLDIER FOR LIFE” so there is not too much wiggle room.

His father died in 1998 and he did serve in both Korea and Vietnam according to his obituary.

However, there is no “Glaub” listed on any Silver Star resource out there.

Further searching revealed another article that established Robert as being in the Air National Guard.

And in fact, the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) confirmed service in the Air Force/Air National Guard by Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) results.

So, it looks like Glaub has some ‘splainin’ to do.  Even if he was playing dress-up with someone else’s uniform, most would simply try it on out of curiosity, look in the mirror to see how it fits, remove it and move on with their life.

Who takes a picture, labels it and posts it to the internet?  The “Goosinator” that’s who.

The Silver Star and the Purple Heart could prove to be problematic for Glaub since it may put him in direct conflict with Stolen Valor laws.

    It looks like he all the hanging things on his qualification badges. I need to know what they are for Bayonet, typewriter, outhouse and others.

    • Some Guy says:

      I can clearly read the clasps on the expert badge for the floor buffer, daisy clipper, broom pushing, nose picking and see some sharpshooter clasps for using the urinal, fly swatter, and dip spitting. 😀

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I’m sure that at least FOUR of those rungs are for “Pillow-Biting Pickle Polisher”!

    • Hack Stone says:

      The one between The Silver Star and The Distinguished Flying Cross Just May be the highly coveted and rarely awarded Precious Metals Recovery Expert Ribbon. It’s an honor just to be nominated for such an award.

    • Mike says:

      Number one the ribbons are out of order.he is just a other want to be

  2. Comm Center Rat says:

    This self-proclaimed “Soldier For Life” wears the American Defense Service Medal denoting active duty service between 9/8/1939 and 12/7/1941. I wonder if Glaub ever ran into a young Army nurse named Margaret DeSanti back in those “WW II times?”

    As a recipient of the highly coveted and rarely awarded NDSM, I take a small measure of comfort in knowing POSer Glaub didn’t demean our brotherhood by wearing our service ribbon in his photo.

    Besides the jacked-up, fake ribbon rack he’s sporting, what pisses me off even more is Glaub is wearing a beret, perhaps green, with the 7th Special Forces Group (A) flash. Glaub is a glob of fat with one chin for every service stripe on his fake uniform.

    • Anonymous says:

      Dipstick learned/applied nothing from his own service about this stuff and couldn’t even use a commercial company’s ribbon rack maker to have his crap in order of precedence.

    • rgr769 says:

      The first thing I noted in the photo of his mug was the beret and 7th Group flash. His wearing of the beret and the lack of DUI on the flash screams POSer. You have to hand him one thing, his marksmanship badges remind me of those 50 foot cable rope ladders we used in the Viet of the Nam. He must have a rung for the Trapdoor springfield and the Gatling gun.

      • Talk about rope ladders rgr769, we deployed them from the ships boat booms while at anchor to tie up our utility boats, officers and the Captains Gig. Trouble with them was that half the rungs were broken and hanging down so when you climbed those jacob ladders, you really had to stretch your legs to get to the next rung. The Deck Apes climbed the ladders like it was nothing but I was the boat engineer/stern hook Snipe and never got used to it. Mike boats (LCM’S) and POPPA boats were tied off of the fantail when we borrowed them from an APA or AKA while our Utility boats were broken down.

        • rgr769 says:

          Our ladders were quite solid. The rungs were made of structural aluminum and instread of rope, they were supported by three steel cables. The ladders was on a large roll mechanism designed to attach to the floor of a Huey. They could be used to insert or extract a LRRP team. We trained on them and I only saw one op where we used them to insert a team on top of a wooded hilltop adjacent to Firebase Maryanne in II Corps. Most of our jungle extractions with no viable LZ were done with the STABO rig.

      • Anonymous says:

        The picture of Barry Saddler on the cover of his album didn’t show the qualifications badges, but Glaub figured he must’ve gotten at least sharpshooter on everything possible ever.

  3. Wiz says:

    Was probably his dads since there is NDSM. But why add the USMC good cookie?
    Longtime listener first time caller. The posers, wonder how much mental illness plays into doing. FFS if you’ve been on intraweb more than 5 minutes you know you’re not going to get away with it.

  4. Mick says:

    Apparently there isn’t a motorcycle, a leather vest covered in poser bling, or a doo-rag, etc. involved in this hot mess so far, which is somewhat disappointing in an odd sort of way.

    However, I did take note that the ol’ Goosinator here does have a stuffed raccoon proudly displayed on the wall behind him in that photo of him playing dress up in the uniform jacket with all of the pretty ribbons.

    So in addition to being a bonafide war hero, he is also obviously a mighty hunter. As well as a connoisseur of the finest in home decor.

  5. Jay says:

    Man, he just soup sandwiched a hodge podge of ribbons and badges together, didn’t he? Army Good Conduct, Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Marine Good Conduct, Legion of Merit at the bottom. Fuck it…if it fits, it ships.

    • FuzeVT says:

      Ya see, there was this basket at the Army Navy store. “US award ribbons – 39 cents ea”. I just kinda went nuts, ya know? I mean, what’s a guy ta do?

  6. Hondo says:

    The unknown ribbon is NOT the POW Medal. The POW medal would have two white stripes between the edge of the ribbon and the wide black stripe in the center. Further, the unknown ribbon also appears to have a relatively narrow red center stripe. The POW Medal does not have such a red center stripe.

    The DFC has all of those characteristics. I’m virtually certain that the “unknown” ribbon is in fact the ribbon for the DFC.

    Oh, and that’s a nice Chef Boy-ar-dee baker’s hat he’s wearing in that photo, sporting the 7th SF Group flash – accompanied by matching “long tab” and SF patch on his left shoulder. However, the SF patch is not complete – it’s missing the “Airborne” tab that’s part of the DUI.

    Jackass wannabee.

  12. Harry says:

    He’s got TWO stairways to heaven😂😂😂! Why is the Army paying all those recruiters when we could just keep this fat sassy Rambo on active duty forever? And a Distinguished Flying Cross? I guess he left his door gunner post to land the Space Shuttle?

    • Sarge says:

      Please explain to me what the actual fuck that ladder thingabob is.

      Seen some legit ones, 2-3 at most but that many?

      • rgr769 says:

        Each rung of the ladder has the name of the weapon the individual has qualified with for that grade of marksmanship badge. No more than two rungs are authorized for wear with each badge. Normally people only wear the badge for the highest qualification with only two rungs, such as “pistol,” or “rifle,” or “machine gun,” for example. His marksmanship badges scream “I am a Phony.” The rest of his outfit screams “I never served a day in the Army.”

          Now, back to the lying embellishing POS Robert Allen Glaub. ESAD mofo. I was the FIRST to drop some love your way on the MP Site last night. This thread dropped after I had to leave out FIRST thing this morning. I am so very pleased that the Troops of TAH are well on the way to making your lying sh^t sucking piss poor excuse for a POSer Google Famous. Hope someone takes care of the poor dog laying on the floor and it is obvious that the racoon is just trying to get away. Or is that a road kill that you and Alaska Bobb took to Elko NV to make chilli out of?

          You are not worthy of the HoI, but let me be the FIRST to call for a deployment of the Toilet Bowl of Taunts. Can I get a SECOND and an AYE? You are lucky that an update on Mangy Maggoty Maggie dropped, it make take some of the heat off of your sorry azz.

      Someone should call the Pentagon at let them know that they can make medals that have short issuance periods.

  30. Cameron Kingsley says:

    I wonder what might of happened for him to leave the Air Force after 11 years with no rank on file (no good conduct medal either). I’m guessing it was not a very amicable departure. It definitely was not on good terms that’s for sure (at least from what I can see). The no rank on file is what’s confusing me. Don’t think I have ever seen something like that on here after someone served 11 years.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      I’m betting that he stepped on his pecker with golf cleats!

    • Hondo says:

      He apparently was ANG vice active USAF. Members of the National Guard and Reserves don’t get GCMs unless ordered to active duty. Instead, for qualifying Reserve Component service they receive a different award. For the USAF, that’s the Air Reserve Forces Meritorious Service Medal. This guy has two of them, so at some point in time he apparently showed up to drills regularly.

      My guess is he initially showed up for drills for a few years (min 6 yrs to qualify for two awards of the ARFMSM), then quit participating or was a chronic screw-up – and later got mustered out as a non-participant (or perhaps as a chronic screw-up) post Desert Storm. If I recall correctly, lots of “deadwood” got pruned out of the RC during the years following the Gulf War.

      Regarding why his rank isn’t shown – that’s a good question; it should be there. Could be a NPRC clerk screwed up preparing the FOIA reply sheet and omitted it by accident; could be that the records sent by his ANG unit to NPRC were incomplete or that parts were illigible. Dunno.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        WRT the missing rank, there’s no way he served 11 years and didn’t have some rank.

        With all the screwed up NPRC requests we’ve seen lately I’m convinced that NPRC requests are always given to the laziest slacker working at the NPRC, and that there is never, ever, any kind of quality control or supervision.

    I do recognize the “unknown” ribbon next to the purple heart.

    It is coveted Macho Grande Liberation Gallantry Cross.

    They were awarded sparingly and only given to the elite few. The awardees remain classified, unverifiable (unless you have the eyes only clearance), the records are forever sealed and never listed on a 214. Though, there are some out there, like this one, who violate there clearances and NDA’s by outing themselves, most remain loyal and out of site to the public. I personally believe Glaub never get over Macho Grande.
