Albert Seely is no stranger to Stolen Valor. Considering In December 1970, Seely filed his discharge papers with the Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA) and misrepresented the dates and places of his deployment in Vietnam. He also falsely listed numerous commendations, including two Purple Hearts, a Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, a Bronze Star, and a Silver Star. In March 1999, Seely applied for and received VBA disability payments based upon his false claims of combat and valor. He ultimately fraudulently obtained $174,656 in government benefits.
In February 2014, the VBA terminated his benefits after his fraud was revealed. He pled guilty to falsifying his military service record. He was sentenced to six months in prison, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $174,000 in restitution to the Veteran’s Administration. Seely pleaded guilty in December 2014.
Albert Seely also took to Social Media ( Facebook ) where he claims to have been a Retired US Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant who is a Force Reconnaissance Marine . Although we have no screen saves of his Master Gunnery Sgt. claims, We have seen him making these claims ourselves. Otherwise that portion would not be added into this report.

Results from the National Personal Records Center ( NPRC) under the Freedom of Information Act ( FOIA ) are completely different than what Albert Seely claims. He did serve on active duty in the US Marines from 07/24/1965 to 05/01/1969. He was discharged as a Sergeant ( E-5 ). He did earn the National defense Service Medal, The Vietnam Service Medal, and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.
His Chronological record list him as a 3051 General Warehouseman at the beginning of his enlistment. He spent approx. 2 months in this MOS field before he was transferred to the MOS of 1371 Engineer Equipment Mechanic. He spent approx 5 months in this MOS field and then was transferred to the MOS of 1345 Engineer Equipment Operator. He spent approx one year and three months in this MOS field before he was transferred to Marine detachment, NDC, Portsmouth New Hampshire where he became a 8131/51 Guard/Chaser. He spent approx one year and six months at this duty station and MOS field. He transferred to the Inactive Ready Reserve on May 2, 1969 and was discharged completely from the US Marine Corps on April 15, 1971.
Conclusion ; From the claims that Albert Seely has already been convicted of plus his social media claims. At no time during Albert Seely’s enlistment within the US Marines did Mr Seely hold any MOS’s in the Marine Recon community. He also was never involved in any hostile actions with any foreign enemy during a time of war.
