James Henry Kapner – Fake SEAL, Fake Vietnam Vet, Fake Purple Heart Recipient


03/14/2018 by hombrerana1221

James Henry Kapner AKA Jim comes to us from Fallon, NV.  Jim makes numerous posts on Facebook claiming to be a Vietnam vet with boots on the ground.

Jim makes a statement that when he was a Navy SEAL he had no fear and was hit (eludes to combat related injury) and was in rehab for 3 years.



Once again Jim has to let everyone know that he was a Viet Nam Vet and a Seal, I think he means SEAL.




Now Jim insults a Gold Star Brother and claims he had boots on the ground in Vietnam and that lots of his buddies died.



Claims former SEAL








Then Jim was asked if he was a SEAL…




Then on his timeline a friend had thanked him for his service. Another friend stated that they were told he wasn’t a SEAL and asked why he wasn’t on the SEAL database, is it because his covert status.  And this TURD states Yup and he was on SEAL Team 5, bad news TURD SEAL Team Five wasn’t around then..





After contacting the UDT/SEAL archives, the Naval Special Warfare Center and checking the UDT/SEAL database we found that there is NO record of James Henry Kapner ever completing BUD/S Training or being assigned to a SEAL Team.

James Henry Kapners records were requested through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.



After reviewing Jim’s summary sheet his boots were not on the ground in Vietnam, no Purple Heart Medal (claims of being hit),  no Combat Action Ribbon, no Vietnam Campaign Medal, no BUD/S and no SEAL Team. Jim did retire from the Navy as an E-6.

    Way to shit on your service. Especially in a time when most people refused. Be proud of what you did, not what pretend to have done.

    My God another guy who retired as a 1st Class nothing wrong with that, But no he has to sully his reputation for life by posing as something he is not and never was. These fake stories never cease to amaze me. BM1(SW) USN RET

    The lying sack of shit claims to have a PhD in “psychology/Special Ed” from Embry-Riddle. That school doesn’t offer any degrees in psychology or Special Education.
