I greatly appreciate your interest in upholding the honor of the US Navy SEAL Teams, and
your search for the
TRUTH. Before answering your questions I must make clear that I am a private individual,
not affiliated with the
US Dept. of Defense or any other government organization. My efforts to expose SEAL
imposters are performed
as a service to the public, and in honor of my fallen SEAL Teammates… men who truly
earned the right to the title
“US NAVY SEAL” but who are no longer able to stand forward in defense of their honor,
their reputations, and
If the name you provided is spelled correctly, I do NOT find a listing in the SEAL Database
Underwater Demolition Teams and predecessor units from 1943 to the Present Day) for
anyone named PAUL
HUGHES. I have also examined possible alternate spellings, and names with similar
pronunciations without finding
any that appear to be applicable.
Unless he has undertaken the unlikely action of a legal name change (an action for which
there would be evidence
in the form of court documentation) since his claimed participation in SEAL training, and
based upon the
information you have provided, I can state conclusively that PAUL HUGHES NEVER
COMPLETED SEAL TRAINING,
and he is not now, nor was he ever a Navy SEAL or a Navy Underwater Demolition Team
Many SEAL imposters when confronted with the information I have provided will resort to
claiming that their
records are sealed, burned or their SEAL Operations were Classified as Secret and that
there are no official records
of them. Before any classified operations may be undertaken as a SEAL Operator, a man
must first successfully
complete the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Training program and then the
training program. The names of all those who successfully graduate from that training
program sequence are
compiled in the SEAL database. Later participation in classified operations has “NO
IMPACT” on whether or not a person is listed as a graduate of the training program.
There are records of every man who has qualified for the title of “SEAL”; there have been
and will continue to be
secret missions, but there are NO secret SEALs.
While unnecessary, you may want additional confirmation of my findings regarding Mr.
PAUL HUGHES /s lack of
SEAL credentials. To do so contact the Public Affairs Office at the NAVAL SPECIAL
WARFARE COMMAND in
Coronado, California by telephoning (619) 537-1133. You may also consider contacting the
Archives by email at firstname.lastname@example.org; that organization is responsible for creating the
original SEAL Database.
When discovering that a person was never a SEAL, many people would like know what
person actually did in
the military or did he serve at all. For a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request of that
person’s military service
you should contact www.fakewarriors.org and provide the necessary information. A $20
donation will cover the
Thank you again for your concern in this matter, and for your assistance in upholding the
honor of the US Navy
SEAL Teams. If I can be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please contact me
at your convenience.
Respectfully, Don Shipley BUD/S 131, SEAL Team ONE, SEAL Team TWO.
