Frank Harwell – US Navy SEAL CDR, HALO & Dive Qualified, Blog of Shame12
05/09/2019 by militaryphonies
Frank Justin Harwell comes to us from Odessa, Texas although on Facebook he claims that he lives in Coronado, California which is the home of SEAL Team One and BUD/S training. He also has the nickname “Frankie” and “Donkey Dick Donaldson.” Harwell is 73 years old as of May 2019.
We’ve been aware of Frank for some time. We have given him a pass because his claims are so far out there.
However, the problem is that Frank keeps using former Navy SEALs – Chris Kyle’s and Ryan Zinke’s photo as his Facebook profile, so we feel this crosses the line. He has done this before but he has returned to it recently.
Ryan Zinke was the former Secretary of the Interior. Here is his photo from Wikipedia.
On Facebook, Harwell sums up his claims in the into.
Then, Harwell will repost Zinke’s photo and repeat his claims, this time saying he was with SEAL Team 3.
Here is a post claiming he was a “stud Commander.”
Another post where he repeats wanting to be a Marine SEAL…
Here is the large version of the above post.
This photo that he posted looks like him but the nametag does not seem to say “HARWELL” so we are not 100% confident it is him.
Besides the use of Ryan Zinke, Harwell used to use the photo of the late SEAL Chris Kyle.
He’s got other claims about playing football for the Naval Academy.
Here he is claiming he was in Iran…

ACTIONS CONDUCTED BY MILITARY PHONIES
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 Frank Justin Harwell ever completing BUD/S Training or being assigned to a SEAL Team.
Frank Justin Harwell ‘s military records were ordered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

DISCUSSION and SUMMARY
Frank Harwell’s official military records show that he was in the US Army for two (2) years active duty. He was an enlisted Army Medic.
There are no Navy records that were provided on Harwell by NPRC.
Although he was in during Vietnam, it appears he stayed in the U.S.
Frank Harwell was NOT a Navy SEAL.
If any of these claims were used to leverage work or promotions or anything else of value, Harwell may be in violation of Stolen Valor laws. State laws may also apply.

As a 20 year Navy vet I don’t usually get pissed about stolen valor … but this time he stole from me ! I AM THE REAL DONKEY DICK !
Claims he used to be a tight end, but is now a wide receiver. Is he talking football, or is he coming out of the closet? I’d love to know about that pic of him contracting somewhere in the ME. Obviously, someone in HR didn’t do the background on him.
The only donkey dick that Harwell hung was the flexible fuel spout for 5 gallon fuel cans. Can’t get a mechanics badge without that skill……
Why would anyone who was in the Army claim they were in the Navy lols.
FRANK HARWELL WHY ARE YOU SO SHOUTY
Helo qualified! He’s a greeter at Walmart
Disclaimer: I am not former military, but I am a LEO. As I am not a vet, I will not comment with regard to the offensiveness of his military claims. However, I do feel compelled to point out two things in no particular order of importance:
1. He clearly eats a LOT of Cocoa Puffs (coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs); and
2. “Donkey Dick Donaldson” might be the best nickname of all time. That is absolutely fabulous.
Jeez, another Harley ridin, leather vest wearin sack of dog dicks! No offense intended to legit leather wearin Harley riders.
Honestly, it is pretty difficult to figure out whether these are actual claims, or whether he is just shouting a lot of words in a stream-of-consciousness way.
Why not both?
Seal Commander- check
Commando Diver- check
wait, that isn’t enough. It needs something…..Oh, Let’s throw in “Donkey Dick”…Now it’s complete.
