Craig “Doc” Glynn – Military Records

| March 18, 2020

The folks at Military Phony sent us their work on James Craig “Doc” Glynn who we wrote about here.  Glynn lives in Titusville, Florida and is 68 years old at the time of this writing – March 2020.

Here Glynn claims he was in Afghanistan just as Prince Harry was.

Here he claims MSG along with another claim of Afghanistan, prompted by the Pulse nightclub shootings.

The video news clip put out by Florida Today summarizes his claims…

. . . . .
What does the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) have to say about Glynn?

So there you have it – no MSG, no Somalia, no Iraq, no Afghanistan, no DSC, no Silver Stars, no Purple Hearts.  He had two Bronze Star Medals (no “V” that I can see) but certainly not the 10 that was claimed.

No Green Beret, although he was a medic and he was in Vietnam.

Can’t comment on whether he is being considered for a Medal of Honor.  Can you blame me for being skeptical?

    Oh fer cryin’ out loud. As the saying goes here, Craig “Doc” Glynn just took a giant steaming stinky dump on his honorable Viet of the Nam service. This is just sad…

  2. 2banana says:

    Two bronze stars and a medic in Vietnam.

    That alone is pretty damn good and something to be very proud of…

    Instead he shat all over it.

  3. Jay says:

    Hold up….LEGIT Vietnam Vet, LEGIT Combat Medic, LEGIT Double Bronze Star Recipient and LEGIT Soldier’s Medal Recipient (They don’t just GIVE those out!).


    • AndyFMF says:

      Maybe he knew that they weren’t legit….properly processed but full of 1/2 truths?

      “I’ll discredit my service because my service wasn’t creditable”.

      Just a possible explanation.

      • Jay says:

        Possible. Even Plausible. But its IN HIS RECORD. Its THERE. Its over 50 years old. Let sleeping dogs lie, man. Don’t do this shit. It’s….its not even evil. It’s pitiful. And shameful.

        Andy, you a devil Doc?

        • Mustang Major says:

          Just wonder if actual orders are in his file for his awards? Does the NPRC check for supporting paperwork or just go off the DD-214?

          I worked with some recruiters in the early ‘70s that typed unearned awards in their personal folder jacket, and then at discharge, the awards were listed on their DD-214.

          Not saying this is the case here, but Graig Glynn does have embellishment issues.

          • 5th/77th FA says:

            Roger all that MM. Been known to happen. The old “I have a typewriter AND a pack of carbon flimsies…or better yet…access to a mimeograph machine…oh and btw…I can sign the Old Man’s name better than he can.” It’s not just for 3 day passes/DA Form 31s anymore.

            • SFC D says:

              That sort of thing worked in reverse, as well. Things were known to fall out of 201 files during PCS moves.

  4. Comm Center Rat says:

    A VN veteran with 2 BSMs (Meritorious Service), 2 ARCOMs, a Air Medal, a Soldier’s Medal, and the Combat Medical Badge in less than three years active duty!!

    How could you not be proud of that exceptional record of service and accomplishment without having to embellish?

  5. rb325th says:

    Way to take what was a perfectly honorable (and commendable) Service Record, and flush it down the shitter. I just don’t get it with folks who actually had a record to be proud of.

  6. Green Thumb says:

    There was COL Trautman and there was this dude…

    I don’t think Rambo would have gone after this dude.

  7. SFC D says:

    Dipshit had plenty of badassery to spare. Why make more up? Dumbass.

  8. 5th/77th FA says:

    Flurruduh Man…AGAIN! Just left the lying, embellishing POS James Craig Glynn a little love over to the MP Site. Perfectly honorable service (on paper) that will now be stunk up by his lies. Little Jimmie why for you gotta go and do that? Didn’t see any record of that CIB you’re sporting either. Get ready for your Google Fame…Bitch! Poofing your Book of Fake is not going to save you. Phuque you Azz Hamster, you POS>

    Chipster, since you are needing to load up some ordnance for a three aircraft pass on the lying embellishing POS Michael “Mikey” “Mike” Norman Sleeper from yesterday, maybe we should just go ahead and make a nomination to leave a few insults for the embellishing POS James Craig Glynn? Discussion? SECOND? AYE?

    • ChipNASA says:

      I missed that. I’ll have to go over and check.
      Kind of messed up because working from home and also trying to get a lot of online meeting from Doctors and just finding out today my dr appt tomorrow is cancelled and I’m still shingling. FUCKERS!!!
      Oh well, just hanging in there.
      I’ll be dropping the updated The Hemisphere of Insults®™ which includes Sarge’s Alpabet Assault and The TAH Toilet Bowl of Taunts ®™ .

      I have to step out but it will be posted shortly.
      I’ll also stand by for the vote for dropping the same here for James Craig Glynn, if and when we meet the criteria, embellishing assmunch, why can’t you be proud of your service, Dickbreath?!?!?!

  9. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    SON OF A BITCH, all that legitimately and he shat all over it with lies, what a dumbshit!

  10. IS1 (SW) says:

    This irritates me. Someone that had a proud, superb record had to go out looking for more. Non-serving phonies,even shitbag served phonies, don’t eat at me the way folks that served honorably and proudly but still wasn’t enough for them.

    *Most* folks that served honorably do their things and then gently fade into the background.

    There’s a few that served honorably, it still want attention but don’t cheat.

    Then there’s the even fewer like this cum bubble that just want more. Is he going senile?

    This herpe has now found himself proudly front and center on the wall of shame.

  11. AW1Ed says:

    Sad. Infuriating, but still sad.

  12. Roh-Dog says:

    Obsessed with the Pulse shooting, concern as a beard perhaps?
    Welcome Home, you bag of dicks, now take off that unearned CIB.

    • rgr769 says:

      He needs to take off all that other unearned bling: master parachutist wings, Special Forces insignia, MSG stripes, and a raft of valor ribbons he never earned. I also question the CMB and the Air Medal, since his assignments show he likely spent most of his tour in the division rear or on a battalion fire support base. There has to be a reason he was listed as an RTO with an aid station attendant MOS.

  13. 26Limabeans says:

    At least he didn’t translate the two service stars
    on the VSM for a total of four Bronze Stars.
    That would be something we see from shitbags with
    a shitbag record from the start.
    This guys record is remarkable and it hurts to see
    something like that shit upon for no reason.
    Gotta be a mental issue here. Would not surprise me.

  14. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    James Craig “Doc” Glynn fucketh himself very handily.

  15. Mustang Major says:

    So let me get this straight- Craig Glynn joins the Army during a time of war at 17 years old (assumption based on current age) goes through training, gets assigned stateside, turns 18 years old, goes to Viet Nam Nam and is assigned to an infantry unit engaged in combat, earns various combat service awards, and is back home by age 19 years old and later in life embellishes his service? In-f***ing-creadible!

    This guy actually did what most posers claim to have done. Makes no sense. I guess he felt that he needed more attention on himself to keep pace with the new kids on the block.


  16. Martinjmpr says:

    The Soldier’s Medal is in essence the non-combat version of the MOH. If he legit received that medal, there’s GOT to be a record of it.

    A cursory Google search turns up no hits for a Soldier’s Medal awarded to anyone by the name of Glynn. Does anyone know if there is a good searchable database? The only resource I could find,, also shows no hits for a SM for anyone by the name of Glynn.

    • Jay says:

      Is that all inclusive? My father in law’s old man received the Soldier’s Medal in WWII and I can’t find him listed in that database.

      • Martinjmpr says:

        I don’t think it is comprehensive at all, that’s the problem.

        It just seems to me that the for the SM, which in theory at least is the non-combat equivalent of the MoH (i.e. the highest award a soldier can receive in a non-combat circumstance), there ought to be an actual list of bonafide recipients SOMEWHERE.

        I don’t think I’ve personally ever met a SM recipient, but I have met an MoH recipient (Gen Foley.) They’re not common at all which is why it seems to me there MUST be a list somewhere.

        • MI Ranger says:

          I have found that especially with medical types, they were prone to earn a Soldier’s Medal in war time for an act of valor that was not caused by the enemy.
          The only person that I personally knew to earn a Soldier’s Medal was the PA from 1st RGR BN (Doc Donovan). He and two others (a 1SG and another Medic I believe) paddled a zodiac to the crash site of a MH-60 that went down during a training mission in Utah. I remember it was very cold, and it was more a recovery operation than rescue, but I think they saved at least one.
          We later had two EMTs get put in for it when they saved a hit-and-run child they came across, but the award was denied because their lives were not at risk.

          • Jay says:


            That was my FIL’s dad: he was a Medic during WWII: helped pulled the crew out of a crashed bomber right before it blew.

        • Mike says:

          I knew a SM recipient, Tom Hara back in the day. He earned it at Benning in the late 70’s at Jump School, of all places. He grabbed the streamer-ed silk of a troop about to auger in and rode him down safely. Tom was later cadre at the Airborne School. I went to OCS and EOBC with him later on. Great guy.

    • Mason says:

      As one of the resident history researchers, I’ve never found one. Military Times’ list is the best available, but there’s a lot of stuff they don’t have. They aren’t even comprehensive for awards as recent as Vietnam, but they’re close.

  17. Green Thumb says:

    Old Doc here appears to be dipping into his medic’s bag….

  18. ArmyATC says:

    Glynn did more in his short time in uniform than most do in their entire careers. Two Bronze Stars, the Soldiers Medal, the CMB, an Air Medal, and two ARCOMs. And this clown took a huge steaming shit all over it. He could truly have been classified as a hero, someone to look up to and admire. Now he’s just a zero. I truly don’t understand guys like him.

  19. Hack Stone says:

    Craig Glynn is being considered for the Medal of Honor.

    Craig Glynn: Can I have a Medal Of Honor?

    Big Army: Fuck no, but if you work real hard, you just may earn the highly coveted and rarely awarded Precious Metals Recovery Expert Badge.

    So, they considered it.

  20. rgr769 says:

    I suspect this lying old turd bribed a clerk and had stuff put in his awards section of his Form 20 or he typed it in himself. I will never believe he was awarded a Soldier’s Medal without seeing orders and a citation. I might add he spent most of his tour as an RTO in the battalion HHC rather than as a field medic.

  21. HMC(FMF)Ret_87-10 says:


    A genuine in-country VNV w/ a respectable stack of chest candy has covered himself in more vile filth than a street kid on Friday night in Shit River at Olongapo!!

    A-Fuckin-#1 job destroying any honor that may have once resided in your now withering sack of bones.


  22. IDC SARC says:

    Fukking dicksmith..shoulda nutted up and actually gone to SFMS , it’s a hoot.

  23. Honor and Courage says:

    The most interesting thing I seen was the Soldier’s Medal. This award is very rare, and I have only seen 1 person get this award.
    The Guy should have been proud of what he did accomplish! It took me 17 years to make MSG!!!! So much for the BS.
