Anthony Provost has several pictures of himself dressed as a Navy SEAL on Facebook. He takes his claims a step further by claiming that he is a US Navy Special Operations Officer.
In this picture he appears to be wearing a Purple Heart next to a Navy Achievement medal. Hard to tell from the photo but it might be, it could also be a Navy Battle E.
He appears to be claiming that he is a LT that rates a Trident, they are only authorized for members that have completed BUD/S.
You would think SEALs would be issued better gear.
He also wears a little gold Trident necklace. Yes they are really cool. That’s why we get them for our ladies and daughters.
So for obvious reasons we consulted the UDT/SEAL database and ordered his records through a Freedom of Information Request.
The records are pretty straight forward. He did do an enlistment in the United States Navy. The records show he was a Yeoman 3rd Class, or E4. A yeoman is an enlisted person within the United States Navy that performs administrative and clerical work. They deal with protocol, naval instructions, enlisted evaluations, commissioned officer fitness reports, naval messages, visitors, telephone calls and mail. There is no listing of SEAL Training and he is not listed in the UDT/SEAL database.
He was also in the Navy Reserves until his discharge in 2002. We can find no evidence of a Navy Achievement Medal, Purple Heart, or him ever attending BUD/S…a requirement for all Navy SEALS. We checked the SEAL database extensively and came up with nuttin.
We reached out to others in the Navy SEAL community for anyone that might know Anthony Provost, but all we get in response is “Who dat man”.
We can only speculate as to where, when and why he decided to play dress up. It would not be unusual for a Yeoman to have a Navy Achievement Medal, but a Purple Heart and a Trident are most unlikely. YM was not a source rate to go to BUD/S.
At 1:10 of his Youtube video ” Celeb Pics” he adds himself in uniform
