Don Shipley’s Phony Navy SEAL of the Week YouTube Channel
If you like a laugh, while promoting a good cause at the same time, then Don Shipley‘s your man. His Phony Navy Seal of the Week YouTube channel is getting more hits than a Kardashian on Tinder. You see Navy SEALs attract attention – both good and bad. It’s the bad type that Don Shipley is on a mission to destroy. The channel is called Buds131, by the way.
Who is Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley?
Don Shipley has served in the United States Navy from 1978 to 2003. After graduating BUDS Class 131, he was a member of SEAL Team 1 and Seal Team 2. He continued to progress through the Naval Special Warfare Center, Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S), and Naval Special Warfare Group Two (NSWG-2), NAB Little Creek, Virginia as a SEAL Advanced Training Instructor. Wow!
Serving in eight different SEAL Platoons, he was the Platoon Chief in five of them. He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroism during a search and rescue mission.
When not deployed overseas, Don helped train police forces in handling booby traps and improvised explosive devices – IEDs.
After serving for almost 25 years, he retired in 2003 as a SEAL Senior Chief.
Safe to say, if you have a problem, don’t call Rambo… call The Donald. Not Donald Trump, either, the Real Don!
It’s Called Stealing Valour
While some people might think that anyone impersonating a real Navy SEAL is only a harmless idiot. Truth be told it can be much worse than that when it stretches to people becoming victims of these heartless con artists. It’s known as stealing valour. They’re claiming free drinks, glory and handouts on the back of fallen service men and women who actually died for their country. They didn’t just fantasise about it, they walked the walk and paid the ultimate price. It goes without saying that this behaviour is the lowest of the low when real veterans, who have lost friends in battle, are concerned.
What Type of People Lie About Their Military Service?
To make matters worse, it isn’t just your dumb idiot that does this type of thing. It’s also otherwise intelligent people, such as doctors and teachers who are faking it. Sometimes it’s because the person has failed in their own military career and this is a way of making up for it. Others are outright fantasists who have never laced up a pair of army boots in their entire lives.
Don has even busted people who go to church and tell stories to the children based on their fictitious encounters behind enemy lines. When they are confronted they always fall back on the same excuses… I just thought it was a cool story to tell. No it isn’t. It’s stealing valour.
Others just flat out deny it, like Harley Davidson Mechanic Michael Hall, who did serve in the Navy, but not as a SEAL Captain.
Then you’ve got the religious liars, which are surely the worst of the lot lying in God’s name.
How to Spot a Fake Navy SEAL
Most real service men don’t like to brag about what they have done in their military careers. Although they are rightly proud of their accomplishments, they don’t need to have a crowd of onlookers to listen to their stories every time they are at the bar. Fake SEALs, on the other hand, thrive off telling people how bad ass they are.
You will often see a phoney SEAL stood at the bar with their trident or skeleton frog tattoos on display. These are often a talking point so the con man doesn’t have to start the conversation. The innocent victim does it for them. “Awe, you must be a seal with that tattoo? Let me buy you a drink.” That’s how they roll.
Any decent person wouldn’t comprehend doing such a thing, but it’s a bigger problem than you’d first imagine.
Tips to Bust a Phony SEAL
Fake SEALs often steal their story lines from the movies. You might notice them repeating things you’ve heard famous actors say, such as Clint Eastwood in Heartbreak Ridge. They’re war film junkies of the first degree.
The fake seal will rely on tried and tested lies to cover their lies. “It’s classified. I can’t repeat it, because I will get into trouble.” While certain missions are genuinely classified, the actual training class they attended isn’t. With their permission you can get certain information under the data protection act.
If you’re having trouble certifying whether a person is a real or fake SEAL, then contact Don Shipley and his insider knowledge will have it fathomed out for you in no time at all.
