Claiming to have been a Vietnam veteran and Marine sniper. Also claimed to have earned the SS and three PH in Vietnam and he wears a POW medal on his blues. Randy also recently removed all Marine Corps references from his FB profile. [03/2100 – NOT QUITE] There are several inconsistencies with his story and uniform pics worth noting. First, his SS citation is missing from the Military Times Hall of Valor/Doug Sterner database. Randy has refused to provide a copy, or even the general order number which would appear on the citation, so I can’t reference it. This is a public document. The top three rows of his ribbon stack are organized into an improper three-two-one pattern; he wears only one service stripe indicating less than 8 years of service yet he wears E-7 rank and the Vietnam campaign package and one Kuwait Liberation Medal and the GWOT. Since he has claimed he was in Vietnam in ’68, his career would have stretched a minimum 33 years. He claims to be a Marine Corps sniper and weapons expert, yet wears a first award expert rifle badge and pistol sharpshooter badge and none of the devices I would expect to see on the uniform of a career sniper or Recon Marine, including jump wings or dive bubble. As I mentioned, he wears the POW Medal, yet appears in no POW registry I can find. He wears the extremely rare Navy Marine Corps Medal, typically awarded for noncombat lifesaving. And through his many private messages bragged excessively about his Marine Corps service You will note that his three plus year career was spent mainly in California and Hawaii. There were no overseas deployments. He earned only the National Defense Service Medal and one rifle marksmanship badge. He had multiple stints in the brig, was subjected to a court martial and was eventually discharged in 1969 as a private. ….J 03/2011 – ….Evidently Gunny is still laying claim to his exemplary military records even going so far as to say that POWNETWORK has pasted his name on another person’s shoddy service record in an attempt to defame his character. He claims still to have been a Scout Sniper in Vietnam and parachuted into hostile territory.
