If you look at the interview Manny is questioned regarding his claims as a Navy SEAL in Vietnam.  He claims he was there during Operation Enduring Wind (which was actually Operation Frequent Wind which was carried out on 29–30 April 1975).  Just to be clear the last remaining SEALs in Vietnam left in 1972.

In the video below you can fast forward to 1:40 which talks about his SEAL days and it ends on 2:16:

****WARNING**** A lot of foul language, so if you have your kids around ask them to leave or learn a hard lesson in life.

There are plenty of other articles and Facebook pages regarding Manny being a Navy SEAL and having fought in Vietnam, there would be way too many of Manny’s to post (did you like what I did there?  Many of Manny’s, just in case you missed it).

OK, at Military Phonies our math doesn’t seem to be working

Vietnam War 1955 – 1975 

SEALs in Vietnam 1965 and 1972

Manny in Vietnam 1975

Do we mulitply it by something or divide it by π (Pi)?

 

Military Phonies feels that things are not adding up so we started our investigation.

 

ACTIONS CONDUCTED BY MILITARY PHONIES

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

Manuel Fernandez’s records were requested through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Holy crap, Manny’s summary sheets shows that he served in the U.S. Navy Reserves for 1 year, 9 months, 13 days (12/17/74-9/30/76), by Military Phonies math, when Manny joined the Reserves he would have 4 months and 13 days to go to boot camp, then complete BUD/S, get assigned to a SEAL Team and join a platoon to be participate in “Operation Frequent Wind” (SEALs were not part of that operation).  WOW, that would be amazing but sad to say the “Raging Bull” is now the “Raging Bullshitter”.  He got out as an E-1 (Fireman Recruit), schooling was listed as Pump Repair.  He never attended BUD/S, was never assigned to a SEAL Team, never deployed to Vietnam, and was not part of Operation Enduring Wind.    But he did have some cool hair to match that cheesy mustache….

    He couldn’t even get the name of the Operation and it’s goals right. It was “Frequent Wind” not “Enduring Wind” and we evacuated Saigon, not Laos

    This is the administrator of the Ragin’ Bull’s page. There has been some comments and posts from people who are not fans of the page spreading a fake article about Manny’s military service. It was started by a disgruntled wrestler who has issues with Mr. Fernandez. That will not be tolerated on this page and anyone spamming and making derogatory remarks will be banned and the comments will be deleted.
    This a page that wrestling fans can enjoy the wrestling past with articles, pictures, and videos from the territory days of the business. Not people with personal vendettas. Please respect the people that enjoy the content here and stay tuned for more content soon. Thank you.

      Clown… Raging “BullShitter” Manny lied about his service. The facts are out about him and his bullshit. The only op he did as a phony seal is Operation Breaking Wind…

      What other crap has Manny done to tarnish his cred?

      Apparently you haven’t even read this blog, we could careless about his wrestling career. We only exposed his lies about serving as a Navy SEAL, serving in Vietnam and being a combat veteran. Manny will forever be known as a fake, a fraud and a liar. Let me guess your administrator is Manny? It seems like you don’t care that Manny has disrespected the US Military, the SEAL Teams, Vietnam veterans and true combat veterans.

    Excellent work exposing his years of lying about his service. I don’t know how tough SEAL selection was in the 1970s, but I’d assume it was of a similar difficulty to the stories you hear now about Hell Week and so on. Here’s what Manny had to say about it in an interview from about 10 years ago:

    “I found out the navy was kind of boring so I got into some trouble with the navy in the barracks with the master at arms slapping people around so they was going to kick me out but they gave me a chance to try out for the Seals and I took the course, and basically it’s just a floating course and how long you can float and tread water in a pool and stuff like that which I used to swim all my life, my mom taught me so it wasn’t too hard”

    Who knew selection for elite special forces was just floating and treading water in a pool? Not me.

    Nothing, nothing this scum says is true. Supposedly he was DYING of Agent Orange related sicknesses in the 1990. Looks like he is still here, regrettably.
