Paul Puccillo – Fake Navy SEAL, Blog of Shame


05/30/2017 by hombrerana1221

Paul Puccillo comes to us from Wheeling, IL.  Paul was a SEAL mentor on a facebook page where young impressionable men that are striving to become part of one of the most Elite units in the world gather.  Paul would give advice on workouts, on the life of a Navy SEAL, etc…  Military Phonies was contacted by someone inquiring about Paul’s SEAL claims.

Paul had a post regarding HIS SEAL platoon during September 11, 2001, it’s a long read but worth seeing where his mind is at:



In the post above he refers his platoon as “naval commandos”.  Paul, we have some bad news for you, SEALs do not refer themselves as naval commandos.  That is the kind of thing unknowing people use on TV. 






Paul’s story gets a bit deep…





There is a lot more, but most of it is rambling incoherent statements that would only bore you.   If you managed to suffer through the posts above then BZ because he was killing us with all that crap.

In the posts below from the Facebook Mentors page, members speak about Paul being a SEAL.




Paul is asked if he is a Navy SEAL, I’m sure each of you can guess his answer because he’s a humble man.  Of course “one a SEAL, always a SEAL.”  We know he meant “once”



Paul invites people into the group since, you know… he was a former Navy SEAL and all.




One of the members was kind enough to screen shot a conversation with Paul. Paul was starting to become our hero…sarcasm is just a free service we offer here at Military Phony.   




Paul loves to wear SEAL shirts, some from SEAL Team Four, plus nothing says sexy more than going on a date with your wife wearing your standard mail order U.S. Navy SEAL shirt.




Then you tactically take cool pic of your kid, not forgetting to get your SEAL Team Four shirt in it!!!!  He’s a regular Ansel Adams…but more colorful. 




This is how we really picture Paul



Good thing Paul votes and encourages others to do the same. He was questioned about being a SEAL and he states he was in Class 230.  



Paul seems to give advice on being a SEAL while disrespecting the Air Force and Coast Guard.  We can tell you one thing, every Frogman respects ANYONE that is and has served their Country, regardless of serve or MOS/NEC!!!!!

And he tells someone to refrain from speaking on things that they know absolutely nothing about, we think Paul needs to follow his own advice!!!





Paul likes to demonstrate his motivation and leadership skills. 





Poor Paul, he can’t make it through American Sniper, not sure why…  but we certainly hope PTSD isn’t causing issues.

Paul was nice enough to show off this Dog Tags, these must have been ordered on Ebay because the military does not put the members unit let alone UDT/SEAL.




Paul made a video regarding Memorial Day in 2016.  Of course he has an American Flag flying, to included a Navy SEAL flag.   What a tool, he actually sounds like an idiot.  We guess when you are making up crap it just comes out like a rambling fool!



Then Paul makes a video after a SEAL Trainee died in BUD/S.  Again, he’s wearing a SEAL Team Four shirt.  He has NO clue what he’s talking about, he’s pulling crap out of his butt…

They are NOT lowering the standards Paul and SEAL’s don’t do water drills. If he is going to make up stuff…we expected better than this. 




After contacting the UDT/SEAL archives and checking the UDT/SEAL database we found that there is NO record of Paul Puccillo ever being or training to become a Navy SEAL.

Paul Puccillo records were requested through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.


Try as we may to find his records, the United States Navy seems to have no idea who he is.  Oddly, neither does anyone else in the Navy SEAL Community.  


According to the National Personnel Records Center and the United States Navy, Paul NEVER served in the military, was never a US Navy SEAL, and he’s never seen combat.  He lied to his family, he lied to many young men looking to become a SEAL.  

Paul has made himself out to look like a fool and will always be known as someone that has never accomplished much of anything other than a fabricated story. 

After Paul was exposed in the group he contacted a SEAL to post this in the SEAL Mentors page, you’re only sorry once you get caught…





So he says he’s dying from a incurable disease, what a lie,  unless being a moron is a disease.

It also appears that he didn’t give all of his shirts away because this is a new photo

    What incurable disease lying and bs. Dude while we celebrate and remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice you makeup a complete lie, you should be arrested and thrown in jail and fine.


  2. M. Bacon says:

    Truly amazing how much time and effort these guys put into these fake profiles. What is the point? They are eventually caught and embarrassed. I wonder how his family feels about his lies; does his wife look at him differently or did she suspect all along it was little more than a fairy tale. What a douche.


  3. […] partners at Military Phonies share their work on this fellow, Paul Puccillo, who claims to be a Navy SEAL (what else?). He likes […]


  4. Mark Lauer says:

    Most folks that I’ve known who had an “incurable disease” didn’t go around trying to convince anyone that they were super heroes. In fact, they spent their time preparing for the day they would leave the family they loved.
    This guy isn’t dying of anything except mortification that he was caught.


  5. Jeff says:

    What an idiot. I was so disgusted by this wanna-be John Wayne, by the time I scrolled down to the videos posted here, the thought of actually hearing anything out of this losers mouth was just too much to bear.

    Thanks to you folks here for doing the heavy lifting, and sparing us all the disgust in exposing these phonies.

    I’ll be watching for him on “Triathlete Phonies.” and “Incurable Disease Frauds”.

    Also, if I was a gonna order a drink where they put a cherry in it, I would leave the SEAL shirt at home. (I wasn’t a SEAL)


  6. Jeff says:

    I wonder if this mug shot in Illinois is the same Paul Puccillo. I got the impression here that he was involved in the insurance business.

    If so, these charges are pretty amusing.

    Easy way to spot and procure a Navy Seal or any fake person who does this ask them to post a screenshot of their DoD record, since they are so eager to divulge to the public on FB.
    Also, I think this guy is wearing a Mighty Oaks wrist band for wounded vets. I’m about to report his name to my brotherhood to find out if he’s been there with his B.S. If so I feel sorry for this guy. He won’t have to worry about any apology letter.

  8. No true operator would diss the other services in public. Sure we might joke amoung ourselves but truth is, most special operations deals are joint things these days. Sure..joke about the Air Force until you need those PJs or the Combat Controllers that are imbedded in most SOF units. This penasaurus probably couldnt make it thru a week of Air Force basic..or any other service.

    His wife is Amy ******** and is aware. Might be separated. Not sure.

    He works at a place called Salsa 17 in Arlington Heights. Might be a family owned place where he bartends.

    His cell # (847) 977-****
