Richard Eric Valero – Fake Navy SEAL, Fake EOD and Fake Vietnam Vet


04/02/2018 by hombrerana1221

Richard Eric Valero comes to us from San Diego California which happens to be next door to the West Coast SEAL Teams.  Military Phonies was contacted because Richard is President/Founder at Veterans independence project inc.  In a news article it states that Richard is a Navy SEAL and a Vietnam Veteran.





But now in this article it states that Richard is EOD and a Vietnam vet.  Which is it Richard?  We normally block peoples faces but we felt that the dog would be embarrassed being shown with Richard so we saved him the humiliation (the dog).






Richard was also in an article a few decades ago (1986) regarding not going to the Vietnam War Memorial, he points out his alleged war time buddy Eugene Ashley Jr. which was a US Army Special Forces Medal of Honor Recipient.  Richard states that he was “afraid to come” and “because I want to forget”.  Richard added “I’m afraid it might do the opposite.  I just feel that it was something I had to do…I needed to let this individual know that I still care”






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 Richard Eric Valero ever completing BUD/S Training or being assigned to a SEAL Team. 

Richard Eric Valero’s records were requested through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.




Looks like the Navy has never heard of Richard AKA Dick!!!!

    This asswipe is despicable! He is trying to profit from the misery of genuine veterans. He should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He also needs to trip over a foot locker and get bruised up.
