David comes to us from Rhode Island. It seems he was Veteran of the Year for Newport Elks Lodge 104.
Let’s get a closer look at all those awards. It seems he has the Navy SEAL Trident on his uniform.
We took a look around the internet and found his reconnect page. He claims SEAL Team Four and the USS Atlanta, SSN 712.
Here is the write up from the Elks that also says he is a Navy SEAL.
One of his Facebook posts.
A picture from his Navy days.
He posts that he was with Special Operations.
David was asked about his claims. I tried to contact him personally like he asked but he refused to talk to me. He has his records and so do I.
This is where it got heated. He claimed Tom Marquis as his swim buddy in class 121. BMC(SEAL) Ret. Thomas Marquis passed away in 2011 as a well respected Frogman in the SEAL community.
He even had someone claiming to be his 1st Sgt. come on the thread and vouch for him. He finished the conversation saying he didn’t look at the records but the Commander pulled up his records and said he was a SEAL. I can’t be the only one wanting to see what the Commander found in those records.
We had already checked the SEAL Archives before we asked him about it. If we ask you about it people should know we already have the right answer. We sent out a Freedom of Information Act request to get the records he said he would show us but never did.
David Jameson did serve in the United States Navy. He went to schools for submarine duty and served on the USS Atlanta, SSN 712. Jameson did not go to BUD/S or earn a Trident. He did not serve at SEAL Team Four. I still would like to know what Davids Commander saw in his records to make him believe David was a SEAL. I would hope that Stolen Valor is enough to get that Veteran of the year award revoked.
