FaceBook Account ;
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 

their TEAMs.
If the name you provided is spelled correctly, I do NOT find a listing in the SEAL Database 
(SEAL Teams, 
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 
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 
follow-on secondary
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 
Coronado, California by telephoning (619) 537-1133. You may also consider contacting the 
Naval Special 
Archives by email at; 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 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.

    Another fake……..

  2. It's gotten so bad that every time I meet someone who claims to be a veteran, especially one who claims SEAL, SF, Ranger, I automatically assume they are lying.
