William Bowen Gantt, Not a SEAL, SWCC, or Diver


04/11/2018 by tangomike147

William “Night Train” Gantt comes to us from Tombstone Arizona. He wears a SEAL Trident on his leather vest along with a SEAL Team Six patch. Could be a big supporter of the Teams. So he was asked about it.


Just for the record he would of been 33 years old when that class went through training.  He claims to be a OIF/OEF Veteran.


He also shared a picture showing his days with SWCC.



Big ass flag, check.



Here is another picture sporting the Trident and SEAL Team Six patch on his vest.


He claims an impressive five deployments to Iraq.


Here he claims Team Three as well.


Here he is a 1%er of the 3% and an 81 supporter. I certainly hope he hasn’t been lying to those 81 guys about who he is.


We did a check of the UDT/SEAL Archives and could not find Gantt listed as a graduate of any BUD/S class. We requested his records using a Freedom of Information Act Request and received the following response.


We also ran some other checks covering from 1984 to 2018 to see if there was any service listed that might have been missed. This is an example of one of those checks.


On another note. To be in the SEAL Teams you would need a clearance. His record with the law would probably have kept him out of a basic enlistment with no clearance. The government frowns on prison sentences.


We have not been able to find any evidence that William Bowen Gantt ever served in any branch of the United States Military.

    Dumbass. Those 3 piece patch fellas he rides with will stomp a mud hole in his narrow ass when they find out what he’s done. Mr. William Gant, you’re in big trouble and you don’t even know it.

    the captain morgan bottle filled with pennies next to the big gulp cup w straw is simply precious humor for those (me) who love to see subtle stereotypes

  3. It appears that Mr. Gantt has an extensive felony record. I suppose those SBG (Scary Black Guns) are just Airsoft, right?

    Wow, you SEALs aren’t too picky are you?. Just kidding, don’t do a black op and drag me out of my own house.. LOL!

    I shouldn’t be entertained by these phonies, but so many of these morons look like they could be my kinfolk I just can’t help but check in every day to see if maybe an uncle or a cousin will be next.

    Thank you all at Military Phonies for what you do. You are doing a valuable service.

    From a real SWCC. That picture of the SOC-R SWCC Boat is not from Virginia

  11. BM1(SW) Dave Spurgin says:

    Pure and simple POS nothing more than this would be dignified.

  12. Len Grindstaff says:

    The guys with 81 would appreciate all the black and white (see long sleeve shirt and color of patches) he is wearing with his cut. Highly dubious of that claim as well.
