Erick Phillipps US Marine, Blog Of Shame


09/20/2017 by militaryphonies

 Erick Phillipps from Reno Nevada came to the attention of Military Phonies (MP) when he tweeted that he was a veteran of 7 deployments as a ” rifleman” in the USMC.

Another one of his tweets where he claims to be a combat veteran.

 This tweet, he is claiming combat wounded.


 Sparking the interest of MP we decided to ask Mr Phillipps  who he served with in the Marine Corps and what was his job title. (MOS)

2003 to 2015 as a 0311 (Infantryman) E-7 Gunnery Sergeant with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines. He gave MP permission to look his information up. So we did.
Actions preformed by Military Phonies
We first conducted a single records search at the Service members civil Relief Act (SCRA) website.   Where it was discovered that Mr Phillips had served for exactly two years on Active duty in the US Army. May 11, 2004 to May 13, 2006 No listing was found for US Marine active duty.     



 We then filed for Mr Phillipps military service record under the Freedom of Information act. The results were the same as SCRA. Mr Erick D. Phillipps was discharged as a Private (E-1). 

Summary and conclusion;
Mr Phillips did earn an Iraq Campaign Medal. He was discharged four months prior to the Combat Action Badge(CAB) being awarded to non Infantry Soldiers. So the claim of Mr. Phillipps having served in actual combat will remain a mystery.
However The fact that Mr. Phillipps claimed  seven deployments with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines as an E-7 Gunnery Sergeant, having the MOS of 0311 Infantryman have been proven false for the following reasons 
1. The MOS rank for an E-7 in an infantry Marine unit is 0369 instead of 0311
2. 2/5 Marines have deployed 4 times to combat from 2003 to 2015 instead of 7 as Mr Phillipps claims.
3.  With the evidence shown above and with the criminal record that will be shown below. We can confirm that the county lockup is the only place Mr Phillipps deployed too.
Compiling all of this information together, we can confirm that Mr. Erick David Phillips is not a Marine combat wounded Veteran.

    His record shows Ft. SIll, Ft. Campbell, and Kuwait. I don’t see how he earned the ICM unless he got it on blanket orders for an entire company. It wasn’t unusual for that to happen. Only part of the company would deploy to Iraq while the rest stayed in Kuwait as reserves. I ran into an 11B wearing a CIB. When I asked him where he served he told me Kuwait. he admitted that he received the badge on blanket orders that listed the entire company, many of whom had never left Kuwait.

    Just another poof boy that isn’t even trying. No dog, Harley. Vest with poser bling attached and sunglasses! You don’t even make a decent poser you ass hamster! Go home and cry to your mommy that the mean nasty men are calling you names like the little pussy boy that you are!


    • Reb says:

      Would you believe his buddies think he’s a good guy? It must be PTSD for his service in the Arny…ROLMAO..his friends don’t get it…MAYBE THEIR POSUERS TOO?


      • Wilted Willy says:

        You can bet money on that Reb, you know what they say, birds of a feather flock together! I hope some real vets find him and beat the living shit out of this ass hamster! Keep up the great work Dave!!!


  4. This shit- sucking weasle deserves to have his discharge down-graded, but I don’t think the Marines have a rating lower than Dishonorable? We don’t want to discredit those low-life pieces of shit!


    • Wilted Willy says:

      This fuck stick was never in the Marines, so I hope they find him and beat the living shit out of him!

    OH SHIT! Okay so some fucken idiot reached out to me via Facebook about this guy! somebody who has entirely too much time on their hands, and that person is on here making it sound like he has full support?! Quite the contrary. But I guess this is the state of the world today is to take a veteran… Who has serious addiction issues and tear him down. Man I have to say I am proud to be a member of this club! Reb if that’s your name you’re an insignificant piece of shit who when you’re faced with an intelligent and empathetic reply to your tertiary cry for help cant muster a sentence. Stolen Valor has a good thing going, why aren’t you on there spewing your vitriol? No one made the argument that “he is a good guy” NO. He is a troubled person. And you are a piece of shit for seeking out an avenue to downgrade a fellow human. If I may? You guys are pretty fucking cool I must say. Mr or Mrs Reb. I would love to see your NAM credentials! I mean you cant complete a sentence and somehow I’m expected to let you swerve my opinion? No way dude! You and your ilk are the reason why this movement is getting a shitty name. I’m sorry! Did I use too many multiple syllable words? Great job on being a Facebook creeper though!

    Let me know if you want to continue…

      It’s really funny how you think you’re so intelligent with your attempt at grown up sentences and words. Your grammar, punctuation or lack thereof and misuse of words is amusing to say the least. If you’re going to try and tear someone apart, try using a thesaurus, dictionary and/or get a ghost writer to make your point…or just stay on the sidelines. Take care.

    Assclown was charged with child abuse…a real winner. I’m sure that the boys in the poundhimintheass jail were all up in his ass about beating up/neglecting kids.

    There’s a special place in Hell for him.
