Girard David Pugsley III aka ‘JJ Pugsley’ came to Military Phony’s attention by numerous Government and Civilian Agencies inquiring about Girard’s status as a Navy SEAL. We have reports that Girard has applied to varies security occupations claiming that he was a Navy SEAL. After reviewing the UDT/SEAL database, there is no record of ‘Girard David Pugsley III’ aka ‘JJ Pugsley’ ever completing the UDT/SEAL training. Girard lists himself as attending BUD/s class 238 while stating he’s a SEAL. Girard did attend BUD/s with class 237 but was rolled back to class 238 at which time he was DROPPED from SEAL training. Girard is currently an MMA fighter that has many in the MMA world and his family believing that he was a Navy SEAL.
One of Girard’s friends posts: “Following JJ’s career in the U.S. Navy, completing Navy Seal training and a deployment to Iraq”
The MMA world has him listed as a Former Navy SEAL.
For all the information we needed, a Freedom of Information Act Request was sent to obtain his records.
Girard did serve in the Navy as a QuarterMaster and became a Marine Mammal Systems Operator. Serving 3 years, 11 months, 29 days in the Navy but NEVER as a Navy SEAL.
Girard felt it was necessary to remove Navy SEAL from his resume but then decided to add US Navy Combat Diver. The Navy does NOT have Combat Divers, there is no rate or schooling for Combat Diver. SEALs are Combat Swimmers which includes diving.
Based on his military records, it appears that Girard David Pugsley III aka ‘JJ Pugsley’ is not being truthful about his claim of being a Navy SEAL. Girard did attend training but NEVER completed the basic course required to earn a Trident and the title U. S. Navy SEAL. Also, his records do not support many of the claims he made on social media, with his friends and with agencies that he has provided applications.
