Name does not ring a bell.  As you know only 1/75 was involved with the first Gulf war, and I know for a fact that were no POWs.  Another thing, once you leave a classified unit, your records are no longer classified, and his POW medal and PH would be open source.  Sounds like  he is FOS!
Merry Christmas!

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: NONE

Mr. XXXXXXX I will be on leave until 31 DEC. …….Just a heads up  XXXXXXX, and Stoneburgh was not in the database as graduates or attendants of Ranger School.


NOT held as a POW.

12/2011 OK John W. Stoneburgh, age 44.  Claims to have been a Army Ranger during the Gulf War and a POW.

Claims he was in from 89 to 91.  Was discharged when he got back and re-enlisted in 2003 or 2004.

Claims to have been rescued by SEAL Team as a POW during Gulf War.  He claims his service record was sealed and classified.  Also claims to have been kept in a 5x5x5 cell and the Iraq’s broke his legs multiple times while he was a POW.

He claims everything is classified.

    What a assclown, imbellisher,

  2. […] Scotty sends us a link to his work on this John W Stoneburgh fellow. He was busted on the old POW Network website, but now that it’s down, he figures that he can get back to the business of being so secret that no one can find his real records. He spins tales about the time he was captured by Iraqis during the 1st Gulf War against Saddam Hussein, but, luckily, he was rescued by Navy SEALS. […]

    Keep flushing this turd and he keeps floating to the surface!!

  4. Sarge says:

    Why would the Iraqi Army want to capture a douchebag like this?

  5. John Gagnier says:

    He keeps floating back up to the surface because the sewer is overflowing with POSer turds

  6. John stoneburgh says:

    I am not, or have ever said anything to these reports. I want to know how you can write crap like this on these sites with out substantiated proof. I will be seeking legal advice. This should be illegal to post lies, without proof.

  7. Erika Ledford says:

    My husband and I used to do some work with him. We cut all ties because he was a liar, thief and would bad mouth us to customers. I never waneed my husband to work with him in the first place. I have sympathy for his family, but I won’t lose any sleep over this. It doesn’t surprise me that he lied about something like being a POW, etc. What a disgrace and slap in the face to those who really were. Just thought you guys might want to know this info. I happened to find this page when I was googling for his obit to see if it was true.

  8. Laura Hickman says:

    Will an administrator please contact me?

    • Nikki Thompson says:

      Ms. Hickman for what? I can attest to Johns lying. He was a master narrcisstic manipulator. He told me stories of camping with Boy Scout troops, living at lakes for months on end, time in the military, how his ex wives screwed him over. He was a liar and a cheat. Karma caught up with Mr. Stoneburgh and like Ms. Ledford I am so very sorry for his family, especially his children , but I haven’t lost any sleep over this.
